Outfits 59 - 68 Summer '16

Hi guys! What have you been doing lately? We've been squeezing in as many play dates and afternoons at the pool as we can. Next week, my kids start school (already!) I'm so sad to see less of them, but they've been helping me with that by behaving badly - ha! They're crying, whining, fighting, tattling, and disregarding many, many requests to pick up after themselves. Maybe some time away from them will make my heart grow fonder and my eyes stop rolling!

And now the important things; some recent outfits. I haven't written for a while, so I have a lot to share. 

 


Pineapple rayon Willow tank, pattern from Grainline Studio. This is a new top I sewed recently and I love it! It feels super summery to me.
Cropped jeans
Strappy ballerina flats (similar)

 

Striped Lark t-shirt, pattern from Grainline Studio
Linen Oceanside shorts, pattern from Blank Slate Patterns
Pikolinos oxfords

 

 
Striped Penny Raglan shirt, pattern from Grainline Studio. The third photo and fourth photos demonstrate that my bra shows when I wear this, so I choose a pretty bralette that's very modest if I lean over and the shirt gapes at the neckline. I don't mind it peeking through the arm holes or showing at the large neckline. 
Cropped jeans
White Converse

 

Boatneck Lark t-shirt, pattern from Grainline Studio. I didn't get a good photo of the neckline, but this fabric wasn't the perfect choice for it. It kind of sags down, which is okay with me, but not exactly what I had in mind (more of a smooth, straight-across neckline). Next time, a sturdier knit! Or I will try to reinforce the neckline with clear elastic.
Jean shorts
Clarks sandals (similar)

 

On a cooler day:
Splatter Hemlock tee, free pattern from Grainline Studio
