spots and dots

shirt, DIY 
belt, thrifted
skirt, Old Navy
necklace, New Zealand
Revlon lip butter in Raspberry Pie

       Old Navy's quality can be hit or miss, but these skirts have been non-work-wear staples since I bought them years ago. I used to wear the stretch one a lot more, but have been favoring this non-stretch one lately because it's just a tad longer. 

      This is a simple outfit, but I think adding the belt made it a little more interesting. So did adding a bright lip. I like the color straight out of the tube (see here - hmm, somehow it doesn't look as bright as I remember) but I'm not used to seeing myself in such a vivid lip color. I used my finger to apply it this time and that made the brightness a little easier to take. After looking at last year's photos, however, I think next time I'll wear it straight out of the tube ...


  1. It's fun to see your more casual looks. Love the diy dotted shirt!

  2. What a pretty necklace! I think this is an awesome look on you.

  3. Thank you, Erin. I'm glad that I rediscovered this necklace in my jewelry box - that kept me from going out and buying one. :)

  4. Thank you, Van! This has been a DIY summer for me - lots of sewing and projects. :)
