Stripes and Pockets – Refashion #1

07 May 2012 Permalink

This skirt came in handy during pregnancy as a skirt

…and as a dress.

It got some use after pregnancy, too…

…but in the end, there was just way too much fabric for me!  All I did was chop off a few inches…hem…and voila!  A new skirt!

The new length is much more flattering, don’t ya think?

This skirt has been sitting in my “to-do” pile for quite some time…and it felt great to finally hem it!  With a thick waist band, micro-stripes, and pockets…this skirt will be a favorite for summer!

Tomorrow I’ll show you a pink skirt that I found and hemmed!  I love taking thrifted pieces and bringing them into some kind of current form!

Another stripe on stripe combo (last seen here) with more of my current favorite necklaces.  Spoiler alert…I’ve got more stripes planned for the near future…   What trends have you really been into recently??

Horizontal stripes used to scare me.  They used to be a big “no-no”…but these days, I can’t get enough.  So here we have a little mix and match stripe action to help tame my stripe craving.

Still wanting more stripes in your life?  Head over to Jessica’s Stripe Challenge to see 96(!!!) bloggers showcasing their lines.

Spring Break Stripes

30 Mar 2012 Permalink

I’ve been on spring break this week.  Between thrift store trips, cleaning house (closets specifically…donated 9 garbage bags of clothes!), diy projects, and soaking up as much quality time with the kids as possible…it has been one busy, but productive week!

20 pound babies come in handy…he thinks we’re playing airplane, but really mama is getting in a little arm workout.
