Totally Out

                            DIY Skirt (tutorial coming tomorrow) // Wal-mart Tank // H&M Hat

Apparently maxi skirts are already "out" so thank goodness I don't care a wee little bit about trends. That's why I love personal style so much more then "fashion". Fashion follows trends, it's all about what's in at the moment. Personal style is all about what looks best on you, what makes you feel good to wear, and what works with your life. Of course, this whole outfit is very fall-ish (I'm blaming this never ending gloomy weather messing with my brain) so I guess I'm totally "out", but I am just fine with that.

PS. I know a few people asked for a tutorial for the last maxi skirt I made - tomorrow I'll be sharing how to make that one and this one:)

We're getting so close to the big move! I spent most of yesterday sorting through my closet which quickly expanded to fill the big walk-in closet at this house after we moved in. Anything thats semi-wintery is going into storage (YES!) and I recently gave a lot of clothes to some friends, but went back through and decided it's time to get rid of a little more. There's several things that are still in perfect condition that I've worn here on the blog a few times, and I have had a few people ask me about doing a "shop my closet" sort of thing so I'm considering - what do you think? Anyone else done one or bought anything from other bloggers "closets" before? I'd love to hear your opinions/experiences!

Bows + Spots

Today I went out and did some serious grocery shopping. There was a few weeks there where I was doing great eating meals at home everyday. That's been kind of one of my "resolutions" for this year, to eat at home more and make most of it all from scratch. Then Frank got sick last week (do you feel the excuse coming?) and so he was making pizza less (did I mention he make the best pizza ever, because he does) and I had been lazy going to the grocery store and stuff so I ended up picking us up take out almost every night. But now I'm trying to get back on the wagon (or off? I guess it depends on whether it's the home-made food wagon or the take out wagon) and get back to cooking and feeling a little better about what I eat.

On totally unrelated news to both the last paragraph and an outfit post (although I suppose it's slightly related somehow?), I noticed my hair is already starting to fade. Not that surprising since my hair is stubborn and doesn't enjoy change. I already picked up some more "intense" bleach to try to save it from going back completely. Anyone else had that problem before?
