I could blame it on the extra weight.
I could blame it on the baby that I'm so busy caring for (who is a toddler now BTW).I could blame it on my tight budget.
I could blame it on the blog and this constantly-crafting, no-time-to-get-made-up phase.
But, no, there are no excuses. Running around in ripped jeans and your husband's sweatshirts isn't so cute anymore when your in your mid-thirties.
Stop. Dressing. Like. A. Grungy. College. Student.
Seriously... I need to make some skirts, refashion some hoodies, and knit something for myself for a change. Here's a list of projects to get me looking somewhat put together in 2013.
Got to love the hoodie!
It dresses up jeans and hides your
muffintop plumbers crack flaws.
|from Tatertots and Jell-O|
Love the layered look! I'm tall and booty-licious so I could use the extra length.
I bet I could recreate this look from Polyvore.
|Note to self: buy more long layering tanks.|
Scarves - they are so French, non?
It's trendy and (bonus!) it covers the baby snot smeared on my shirt.
I'm not a skirt kinda gal but I need to venture outside of my comfort zone.
(Which reminds me... NYR#2 Shave legs more often)
Check out this cute ruffle-skirt-on-the-bias that my BFF made:
|from City Girl Country Life|
I think I could rock this little pocketed number with some leggings:
|from Running With Scissors|
I love plain knit T-shirts that have just a little pizazz, like flutter sleeves:
|Bet I could refashion a tee like this one from New York & Company|
Or this cute tee refashion from Busily Spinning Momma
(after all, I am an '80s child but I was a little young to rock an off-the-shoulder top)
And for the grand finale, I need to KNIT SOMETHING FOR MYSELF.
Something gorgeous that might have cables and might be assymetric,
like this from OvejaNegra on Etsy:
Thanks for reading! Happy New Year! What resolutions are at the top of your list?
