pleated poppy

I've been saving up!  Here are the highlights of my wardrobe choices over the past two or three weeks:

Shirt: Joe Fresh (gift from my sister)
Belt: Ardene's
Boots: Shoe Warehouse
Tights: Roots from Winners
Skirt: Designed by me, made by my mom.  It's made of 8 equal pointed gores that flare at the bottom, and it's lined.
Necklace: Made by me

Jeans and Necklace: H&M
Cami: Smart Set, I think.  Maybe Suzy Shier
Rose Earrings: Vintage from Kevin's grandma
Shirt: Thrift Store.  I think it used to be a dress.  The bottom hem is raw, and I zigzag stitched around it to keep it from fraying.  The buttons keep falling off so I need to do something about that.

Cardigan: Zellers
Brown shirt: Urban Connection
Socks: Costco

This outfit was kind of inspired by one of Lindsey's outfits.  I like the concept, but I think I needed a different shirt to replace the brown one.  And I'm not wearing shoes because this is Canada, yo!  We take our shoes off at the door!  Meaning, I was too lazy to go put my boots back on for the picture.

Cardigan, Skirt, and Leggings: H&M
T-shirt: Old Navy.  I'm glad I only paid $3 for it because it's getting holes already!
Boots: Shoe Connection
Earrings and Necklace: Gift from a friend.  I wore them when I was in her wedding.  I like the bit of bling they give to my grey rainy-day-inspired outfit.  We'd had the first rain of the spring the night before...even though it was still technically winter.  

Happy second day of spring!

  1. Love the skirt outfit in the bottom photo - you look great!!

  2. Those are cute outfits! I'm not sure I'd want to share what I wear on my blog... :) I like the picture of you sitting on the kitchen cabinet. Do you get Kevin to take pictures or do you use a self-timer? (See my recent post for my self-portrait attempt!)

    And I didn't have to put in word verification this time... THANK YOU!!! :)

    1. Bonnie, thanks for letting me know about the word verification. It was supposed to be turned off all this time.

      I use a 10-second timer and a little tripod. Before I got the tripod, it was pretty much impossible to take full-length pictures of myself because our camera doesn't prop up on end very well! But sometimes Kevin does take the pictures. But I find I get better pictures (lighting or pose-wise anyway) when I do it myself. Kevin isn't very patient with me ;-)
