I've Been Sailing Along

What I Wore:
Shirt: Made by Me (New Look)
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: Ardene

It is finally nice enough to take outfit pictures outside. I usually work afternoon to evening shifts and I am never home early enough to take pictures outside, so this day was a rare occasion. I could wake up early and take pictures before work, but I am not a morning person and that just seems like too much work haha. I have been really digging 50s and nautical styles for a while now, you can never have too many pieces like that in your closet.

If you hadn't noticed I have really been having the sewing bug lately. I am really trying to stick to making or thrifting most of my clothes, and I have a huge stash that needs to be sewn up. I have wanted to make this particular shirt for a few months but I never had the time to do it until recently. Well not so much that I didn't have the time, but I didn't have the drive. For me I really have to be in the mood to make something in order for it to get finished. If I am really interested in a project than I am excited about it and more likely to see it through to the end. I just finished a pair of pants that I am pretty excited about, and the next project I think will be a 50s style sun dress.


  1. Looks great! I love the nautical look (which you seem to love too!), and the outdoor 'street style' pics. Beautiful poses.
    Hope all is well!

  2. Thanks Maya. I have really been digging mautical for the last two or three years. Possibly vordering on obssession... I took these pictures at the back of our apartment building. It is a pretty good location for outdoor shots because no one can really see you and the backdrop is nice. I love the classic look of the exterior of our apartment.
