{three hour rule}

June 20, 2011 § 1 Comment

I wore this dress yesterday for a few hours, but then changed into a new outfit (more suitable for sunburning) and thought since I’d only worn it for a few hours it was good for another day. I’m completely in love with this dress – I’ve already made two and have a third almost done!

dress – handmade, this one not blogged, but the same pattern blogged here

shoes – Len Druskin

necklace – vintage

bangles – Avenue


{stone arch festival}

June 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

A nice, hot day! It was Dan’s and my first anniversary and we started out by taking a super fun three hour bus tour of Minneapolis. So fun to play tourist in our own town! We stopped by home to pick up the puppy hound and then headed out to the Stone Arch art festival for some wandering! We even met another basset hound named Lucy! I wore a different dress for the tour (3 hour rule, I’ll wear it again tomorrow, you’ll see a picture then!!) I changed into a tank and short skirt for the art festival so that any color I got through my SPF 70 would be a bit more even and I wouldn’t end up with a tan neck and white chest!

tank: Old Navy

skirt: handmade, not blogged

flips: Target

bangles: Avenue

I actually spent most of my time in this outfit wearing bright yellow rainboots, but they’d already been stashed when I took the picture. Another fun weekend day!

A day spent mostly at home, cold developing. A bit of time in the garden and dog-walking. Hot.

{the case for self-tanner}

Summer is indeed here, as evidenced by my clearly ill-gotten tan on the arms, with my legs remaining stubbornly white. I have the most tan-resistant legs in the history of red-heads.

Today’s outfit is a so-so in my book. Pros on the shirt: LOVE THE FABRIC, theoretically love the peplum-look. Cons: Ummmm… no, I am NOT due in 2 days….
