Before I discuss the skirt in this little picture, two things.
Thing One: Does anyone recognize that I gave you all a break from seeing my front door? I am not sure why every skirt post I have done in the last few months has me standing in front of that door.
See what I mean?
This is probably because I am lazy and don't go out on photo shoots. Some ladies always look so classy and model-like when they pose their homemade clothes, strolling some droll location.
I mean seriously, have you ever seen Leanne Barlow's blog? Then there is the blog Kristina J I just found. Why can't I strike a pose like these ladies. GLAM much.
Basically, I just wanted you to know I've got your back and I will give you a reprieve from my front door. I just um, took a few steps to the right...now you can look at our stone wall. Lucky you.
Thing Two: I must, must, must give a little Hallelujah for the yellow cardigan.
I have been yearning and craving fortnightly for a yellow cardigan. Seriously I have been looking for years. I had searched online, in every store, thrift stores, my sister's closet...you get the idea. I simply could not find one at all.
She too had been on the same search, but her search was over. She had found one, and glory be it was at Old Navy. We have an Old Navy. Boom.
I may or may not have hit the store that very night. I may or may not have cradled the cardigan in the store. I may or may not have clapped like a 5 year-old getting a new pony.
Yay for a no door photo.
Dreamy yellow cardigan...check.
So wait, wasn't there something about a pencil skirt from a t-shirt?
Why yes, yes there was.
The other day when walking The Mart, a place I find myself WAY too much, I passed a rack of men's t-shirts on clearance. My eye was immediately drawn to a navy blue and white stripped shirt. As soon as I saw it, I saw a pencil skirt.
No, I don't know why. I don't ask my brain these things. I am just feel grateful when the thing actually works.
So without hesitation, I picked up the shirt.
This skirt literally came together in about an hour. My kind of project.
In about an hour I turned a ordinary t-shirt to this-
I paired this knit pencil skirt with a white shirt, my yellow cardigan (yay), and nude peep toes.
I pinky swear.
Thanks for reading. I sure appreciate ya.
