Grab Yer Part-ner!


Earrings:Gift from a Friend
Red Beads: Grandmother's
Rhinestone necklace: Burke's Outlet
Flag Pin: Gift from a Friend
Cameo Ring: French Quarter, New Orleans
Tee: Macy's
Belt: Local
Skirt: Thrifted
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (Clearance)

So I seem to be wearing my Zebra wedges every Sunday here lately!  That happens a lot during the Summer months.  They are just so easy and make every outfit fun. :o)

A little sweetheart came up to me before church started and took this flag pin off of her blouse and gave it to me.  She said it looked so nice with my outfit that she wanted me to have it.  What a dear!

I usually wear this skirt for casual everyday outfits.  I like to throw a graphic tee and sandals with it and flounce around doing my errands. :o)  So here's the fun part...it's an honest to goodness Square Dancing skirt!  I thrifted it along with its coordinating peasant blouse.  A lady had donated a dozen or so of her Square Dancing costumes and I pounced on this skirt and a brightly colored one that I call my "Fiesta Skirt" (you can catch a glimpse of it HERE in my Instagram roundup of for Me Made May).  Sadly, I wasn't quick enough to nab one of the two petticoats with them.  Even though I have sewn my own petticoats, it would have been nice to add to my collection for only a few bucks.  Oh well, I'm happy enough with the skirts. :o)

What I Wore in May: Part 4


Well y'all get to see how I dress up on a daily basis.  I present to you my Me Made May 2015 Instagram roundup.  Not every day is exciting...I figured out I reach for my cutoffs a LOT. :o)  I really thought I had more fun skirts sewn up.  Turns out they are all waiting in the "to sew" stash!  I also have a bunch of tees waiting in my refashion pile that really, really need to be worn.  Alright JJ, get off of the computer and on to your sewing!

Hope you liked this little change of programming. :o)

What I Wore in May: Part 3


Pearls and Opals: Gifts from Hubby
Pink Pearl Bracelet: Gift from a Friend
Paris Tee: Ross
Skirt: Self Made
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (clearance)

In the middle of our wedding preparations for my sister, we got to take a break and attend my cousin's wedding.  I have had this fabric waiting to be made into a skirt since January.  I was determined to find time to sew it up and wear to their wedding, so on the evening before I started sewing furiously!  I finished at 2am with a little bit of hand stitching to do on the waistband in the car.  We had a 4 hour drive, so I used that to my advantage. :o)
