its a girl thing // silver and blue

Sweater: Kohls
Skirt: handmade
Cami: Forever 21
Sandels: Fred Myer

    This was my outfit for a normal Saturday around the house baking and babysitting this afternoon. For the past year or so, I have been freezing cold all of the time, so even though the sun was shining, I was  perfectly comfortable in my sweater. The little girl I was watching thought I was crazy and should go home to put a tank top on. ;)
    This skirt is making me so happy at the moment. My mama agreed to make circle skirts for the ballet studio my sisters dance with for their recitle. 50+ skirts to be exact. She has perfected the art of figuring them out, and I decided that I needed some summery skirts that were light and fun. So I made a couple one day this week, and this gray and silver pattern was one of them. It is, lovely, lightweight and I am very happy with it. (Today I am wearing a navy and white polka dotted one that also makes me very happy. ;) 

How are you revamping your wardrobe for summer?


  1. That's a very lovely outfit:! I love the skirt:) maybe you could tell me where you got the pattern?

    1. Its incredibly easy. My mom said that this was the best tutorial she found that explains it:

      She also said to tell you that you have to make sure to buy 60 in. fabric. :)I hope that helps!

  2. Becca, you are so pretty and I love this outfit! The lace detail on the back of the sweater is splendid. And I absolutely adore the skirt. I'm going to try and take sewing lessons this summer...I don't have a sewing machine, but my oldest sister does and I figure it wouldn't hurt to learn.

    Last fall/winter I packed away all my spring and summer clothes and I recently overhauled my closet, unpacked my spring/summer wardrobe, and packed away all my winter sweaters, dresses, etc for the year. Next I need to upgrade my shoes because all my summer sandals and dress shoes are 3+ years old and severely worn. :P

  3. You're gonna have to show me how to make them. :)

  4. I LOVE that sweater! And circle skirts are the best. I was so proud of myself for figuring out how to make one (I am NOT a great seamstress).

  5. I love this outfit :-) Gorgeous. The sweater is adorable (I love the detailing on the back), and the circle skirts sound like so much fun. You might have to show me how to make one sometime :-)
