30 for 30 Remix - Outfit 8

Floral Yoked Skirt made by yours truly / White Ruffle T-shirt Ann Taylor / Owl Ring Kohl's / White & Red polka-dot Dangle Earring Etsy / Tan Boots Target

This evening it was very windy hence the hoop skirt look. :) I have a feeling my skirts & dresses will have this look all week. You see, we are to have rain and storms all week and that brings lots of wind to our area. :)

Some of you might remember that I posted about making this skirt back on May 24th. I did finish making it that evening, but when I wore it the next day we had tornado warnings all that evening {I was gone all day} - not good weather for taking pictures. I also wore it to our home-school convention in hopes that I might get some pictures downtown. But I was having way too much fun with my new friends and enjoying the convention in general to take pictures. Which is why it has taken this long for you to see pictures. {I have even more sewing projects that I never took pictures of in my closet.} -_-

::Fashion Tip:: My ruffles on my shirts never want to stay down. They always want to just pop up. Even after I give them a good ironing. :p Recently I discovered a way to keep them down. Use either scotch tape or double sided tape to tape the ruffles down underneath. It works like a charm. Just remember to take the tape out when you are done.

::Giveaway:: Jessica over at What I Wore is having a giveaway for her new book of the same name. She is giving away 10 copies of her book. I'm hoping to win a copy as I adore her outfits {at least her vintage-y ones}. Click here for the giveaway. Here are some of my favorite outfits of hers. 



  1. I love that outfit! It looks really pretty on you!
    Oh, and I have a question...when picking your clothing items our for the remix 30 challenge, how do you pick them out? Do you just pick pieces that are versatile? Or do you just pick your favorites??

    Have a great day!!

  2. @Miriam Thanks, Miriam. It was a mix of both versatile and my favorites. :)

  3. I love all those outfits! Yours is very pretty too! :)
