DIY Cable Knit Pillow

Here I go again!

Last year I made a cream-colored cable knit pillow and over the summer I made an orange one. Both pillows sold on my Etsy shop so this past weekend I made another pillow.

This was once an Izod sweater that I found at Goodwill. I wore it for February’s “red and pink” challenge but I’d originally bought it with a pillow in mind.

I liked the cotton-candy color. I know pink draws a strong reaction from people. Give it a chance. It’s a fun shade.

Dress Up, Dress Down: Flamingo Skirt

You might recognize the color palette in this post. I wore this dress (as a skirt) when I visited Flamingo Gardens a few weeks ago.

I packed light for my trip to Florida and I wanted to get a lot of mileage out of my clothes. Later in the vacation, I wore the dress (as a dress) when my mom and I celebrated our birthdays.

Dress: Annie 50
Top: H&M
Shoes: B2
Pashmina: Mary Kay
Earrings: DIY

This dress was a breeze to pack. It didn’t show wrinkles because it has just a bit of lycra. The shoes are really comfortable and worked well for a walk in the park as well as out for dinner. Plus, they’re semi-waterpoof. I wore them to the beach, but not in the water. The wedge is wrapped in faux leather and I didn’t want to risk ruining them.

If you want to see how other fashion bloggers wore outfits in different ways, hop over to the Winter Remix Challenge that Jessica Quirk of What I wore put together. My photos are in the collection too. Thanks Jessica!

Savoring Summer

I know the last days of summer are upon us. But Seattle got such a slow start to the season that I don’t feel ready to give it up yet. Fortunately August and September have been terrific. I am still in full summer mode and went all out with pastels today.

Top: H&M
Skirt: Zand Amsterdam
Shades: Convenience store
Shoes: Flexx

This is my reversible skirt by Zand. The other side is decidedly more autumnal and I’ll likely wear it with tights and boot in the fall, which is technically today. Sure doesn’t feel like it!

I wore this blush top with silk shorts when I went to Fashion’s Night Out at The Bravern. The pink matched the pink swirls in the skirt. I think I like this combination even better than when I wore this skirt with brights.
