{candy stripes!}

A glorious day in Minneapolis! I was off for the day and puttered around the house, sewed, took Lucy the hound for a walk and played in the garden.

PS – I’m catching up on blog posts and realized that these Born shoes are in heavy rotation… apparently I need more!

This is a favorite skirt of mine! It’s wool and silk tweed with horsehair in the hem, so it’s super twirly! Mr. Bug and I headed over to the neighbor’s house for a grill-out. It was a bit chilly, so bare legs with a cozy skirt and a cardigan were just the ticket!

This skirt is a sample I sewed up for a class. I really love pencil skirts! I think I might shorten this up a bit because the fabric’s a bit thin, but in the meantime, this was a great cheery outfit for a day at work!

One of my favorite fabric finds of the year! Cherry corduroy! I finally headed back to work today and it was a little chilly. I am wearing my denim jacket to death! I am starting to think about what other little jackets I’d like to add to the rotation…

A day off! I went on TWO walks with Lucy and did some other fun things. This is a super comfy outfit and I like it, even though it is basically me stretching some horizontal stripes over generous hips! Clever readers will also note that these are TOTALLY knockabout the house clothes… there are 2nd day pants!

I felt a bit witchy-slash-stevie-nicks in this outfit. I normally don’t have so much matierial wafting around while I walk! It was fun, though – and comfy!! I spent the day knocking about the house and then headed out to teach a class!

Readers of my other blog, The Snug Bug, will know that I am not an adherent of the A-line skirt is universally flattering nonsense. I’m finding I like ‘em a bit more if they’re shorter and VERY triangular!! This skirt was almost tossed in the Arc bag – I’m glad I have it a second chance!
