Outfits 69 - 77 Summer '16

Hi guys, this past week was a whirlwind. Violet started kindergarten and Bodhi started preschool. They both did well and seem to like their teachers and classes - phew! I think next week will seem easier, as I figure out when we have to leave to pick up and drop off the kids, where to park, what kind of snacks they'll eat, etc... 

Sometimes having deadlines and time limits really increases my productivity. I'm hopeful that I'll feel motivated to work on projects and to organize the messy parts of the house, in between dropping off and picking up kids. Also, I'm really enjoying having one-on-one time with each of my kids. It's such a different dynamic and it's really nice.

Is it cooling off yet where you live? We've had a couple of cooler days and they felt amazing. We're still hoping for a few more hot days before our neighborhood pool closes for the season, but it's really nice to have a break from the 90+ degree temps!

And now some recent outfits:

Cherries Saltbox tee, pattern from Blueprints for Sewing.
Cropped jeans

Pineapple Willow tank, pattern from Grainline Studio
Linen pants, pattern from Simple Modern Sewing
Clarks sandals (these look good, too)

Double gauze Scout tee


Birds skirt, self-drafted
Clarks sandals (sold out, but these are cute)

Sam Edelman leather espadrilles


T-shirt spray dyed by me

I'm starting to love the colors of fall now! 

Striped Penny raglan tee, pattern from Grainline Studio
Madewell flares
Sam Edelman leather espadrilles
I'm thinking about altering these jeans to make the flares a bit smaller. I haven't done it before, so I'm hesitant to try, but there are a ton of tutorials and videos online to learn from, so I hope I'll be brave and go for it!
