What else I've learned

5:55:00 PM

Here are a few more fashion related things I've gathered/observed:

  • Pleated pants are in. I like them. Of course they're a different cut than the ones 15 or 20 years ago. 

  • Button your shirts all the way up. I like the look, but it's brand new; I'm thinking it may not catch on for another year or two. 

  • All I can find are pencil skirts. There are many versions ranging from pegged to classic. I love pencil skirts, but being a mama, I need some room to move! Here are other skirts that I like:
Marc Jacobs Iridescent Pleated Skirt
 I also think the light Mary Janes with dark sock look is cool, but I don't think I'm daring enough to pull it off. 

Peppered and Striped Skirt (from Anthro)
very school girl, for the first day of school.


Okay, that's all I've gleaned so far.

I feel behind on the times, but today I did a bit of research for what's new this season. I figured since it's the first day of school here ( I wish I were going...sigh), it would be fitting.

I always start with color. Here is the report from Pantone (for full report, go here) :


Pretty huh? I love the chocolate truffle. I wish I had the actual Pantone book so I could see if it really did have a plum tint.

I'd like to put these together:

I'd do color combos all day if I had time. :)

Posting has been pretty much non-existent for the past few weeks. I hope you will understand that new babies cause this to happen.

I actually was able to get a little crafting in last week in the car. I love car crafts because I have a perfectly good excuse to not be holding a child- hence, making my hands free for a little needle work.

After Rose was born, I realized she needed some socks. I got the white bobby socks because I like them the best and they go with everything. When we got home, I realized that they were the exact same socks Jack has. To make matching socks a little easier, I added some little flowers on Rose's.

Talk about easy. Just a little embroidery floss, and chain stitch know-how, and you could whip out a dozen of these in no time.

Here's a little illustration of how to make a daisy using the chain stitch for a reminder:


And here's the front half of our little model:

Earlier last week, we had a new little addition. Rose, or "bee-bee Rose" as Jack calls her, is such a precious little miracle. We are so blessed.
