What can I say? I like alliteration as much as Zo does, apparently.
So, as stated before, I've decided to limit my Self-Stitched September outfit pics to once a week, so as to not bombard you with posts for that. Though I'm going to try to write each segment of the posts out on a day-to-day basis so I can fully live out my pretense that I'm a personal style blogger and remember the outfit details! (That, and so I don't have to spend 5 hours on Saturday typing these out.) Here we go...
Shirt: The "Time for Tea(L)" top
Skirt: The "Baby's In Black" skirt
Bracelet: I won it for free as a door prize at a Lia Sophia jewelry show. (One of my friends is now a seller for them, so I get invited to a lot of their parties.)
Necklace and earrings: from Kohl's
Shoes: My slightly dressier black sandals. From one of those catalog stores that actually accommodates my shoe size.
First day back at my once-a-week band teaching job--the school has a modest dress code, so I needed to make sure everything was well-covered and leaning on the conservative side. Also some flute teaching. Also, it was about 94 degrees, so I wanted something that would help keep me cool!
Shirt: Seafoam pintuck t-shirt
Capris: from JC Penney (they were advertised as recycled cotton, and I loved the style, so I couldn't pass those up)
Shoes: My well-work Birkenstocks
Jewelry: Though it's hard to see, I promise it's there! The "Quicksilver" set
I only had one lesson to teach after the retail job today, and it's a family friend so they don't care if I dress more casually. And then as of last week, I've started attending a Bible study in the area, and everyone dresses very casually for that. So the slightly funkier t-shirt style and cargo pants were just the ticket.
Day 3: In which I scrape by on technicalities.
The Details: T-shirt: self-stitched in that I shortened the shirt and sleeves, originally from Random Shirts
Earrings: self-made, Gryffindor earrings
The Context: I wasn't in the greatest of moods, and so after I got home from the retail job, all I wanted to do was wear something comfortable and bum around. I had to do some work for my band job at my computer, and the evening's activities also included sitting on the floor to trace out a Burda magazine pattern, so this worked well for that.
Shirt, self-stitched, my BurdaStyle bamboo "Sadie" top
Shoes: The Birks, again
Necklace and earrings: self-strung-- I think I made these before the blog, so I'll add a picture for that.
Also, now I get to show off my newly henna'd hair!
The Context: Today's Labor Day weekend festivities are going to be going to one of the local state parks for kayaking, bbq-ing, possibly some form of hiking or nature walking, or frisbee-playing, or something. So I wanted something comfortable for that, but not entirely bummy-looking. Since this bamboo jersey is the most comfy thing EVER and I want more of it, this was perfect!
So there's the end of week 1, sort of.
