This outfit was first worn to a Saturday Sabbath Bible Study, week before last. But seeing as how we were out till two a.m. with friends that night, we ended up missing our Sunday services the next morn! So it ended up not being worn again until this past Sunday. And though the colors are not exactly springy, I have been, so far, rather reluctant to retrieve any of my really summery brights until I know it is here to stay. I wouldn't want to waste their beauty before their time.Shoes- American Eagle thrifted $3 // Hose- ? // Slip- made my me // Skirt- Ashly B brand thrifted $4 // Green shirt- thrifted $2 // Brown Jacket- thrifted ancient // Pearl set, pin, and headband gifted // Hair jewels- made by me, see the tutorial here

So I just created the main shape and then tucked in the ends between the braiding.Oh and links for how I made the hair pins are given above, though I am quite embarrassed by the photography in that post ;) How far we have come.
Isn't this skirt a wonder?! It is fabulous when you find something this unique while thrifting around town. I love it's detail. I would love to recreate it someday and use it for one of my own designs. Throwing it on with a green shirt seemed to make it's colors burst. Kind of like this weather we are having- beauty beneath the brown.
I know a thank you though a blog post can seem empty unless you are in an 'in the clouds' emotion, nonetheless, you make blogging worth while when you take a moment to express your thoughts and thanks. I thank you for being uplifting to me. For being a friend.
Has spring come your way?
