Wedding Stylin’ {Outfits Post}

A few weekends ago, I went to TWO weddings! It was especially crazy because one was in OK and the other in TX and the first (the one in OK) was one that my sisters and I filmed. But it was fun! πŸ™‚

Here is the wedding trailer for the one we filmed. πŸ™‚

For the first wedding, being it was outdoors, I wanted to wear something cool but not a skirt or dress (because of the wind XP). So, I chose some wide-legged, gray trousers (gift) and a lovely blue blouse and white gathered undershirt (also gifts) and canvas shoes (gift).

The second wedding was a little more relaxing for me, except in what I wore. πŸ˜‰ haha. Really, not the best choice of clothing considering it was prone to sweat stains. And that sounds gross, but during an outdoor wedding in TX in early September– it’s inevitable. Yeah. Yuck. Oh well. πŸ™‚ I love the dress so much! πŸ˜„ I actually won it in a giveaway from eShakti, but have since altered it– shortened the sleeves and the skirt length. I got the wedges for about $5 at a thrift store and the clutch was a gift from my mom. The necklace was actually up-cycled from some blingy sandals I had. haha. I also made and wore a rhinestone hair clasp in the back. πŸ™‚ 11998606_717156235083483_1470598497_n

Who Would’ve Thought… {Outfit Post}

…That dark blue could look great with pink? Certainly not this gal right here! X) But, it happens that I’m wrong every once and a while. πŸ˜‰ And this was one of those times.

A friend recently gave some clothing to my sisters and me, and this top that I’m wearing in the outfit (the blue top, not the pink one under it) was one that she gave us. Anyway, it had a bunch of big, frilly flowers on it– I didn’t much care for them *on* the top (I’ll definitely use them in a craft project though), so I took those off, and there was this cute “rope” design under them. I left that on one side and took it off the other side. It was a quick, easy, and fun refashion project. I love this top now! πŸ˜€

Summer’s Arrival {Outfit Post}

Image

I was shopping at Salvation Army a few weeks ago when I found this adorable spring/summer skirt with flowers embroidered along the hem. I showed the skirt to my mom, but since the hem hit me barely below my knee, mom was hesitant to let my buy it. But she and I both quickly (yes, right there in the store) thought of a way to add length to the skirt. I thought it’d be rather tricky, since the skirt was so full. About a week later, we went to Hobby Lobby and purchased the gingham fabric, which I then cut to the right size, and started sewing away. Although we had some minor hurdles along the way, I am quite pleased with the way the alteration turned out! πŸ™‚
