Day 22: I was bleary-eyed and cranky because I had been up the previous night cleaning toddler vomit out of a crib. I wore one of my Fjara tanks and a pair of Ginger jeans to meet a cruddy day. Incidentally, this was also said toddler's second birthday; we didn't manage to celebrate until a full week later.
Day 23: Rainy and cool, so I wore the same Gingers as the day before with one of my new v-neck Renfrew tees with a Lisbon cardigan.
Day 24: I wore my pull-on super-stretchy Gingers with a new, unblogged, somewhat disappointing, Kirsten Kimono Tee and my linen Bonn shirt worn open over the top like a cardigan.
Day 25: Same Bonn shirt, don't care because I loooooooooove it so, with my yellow linen/rayon Simplicity 1887 and rtw leggings.
Day 26: I wore my anchor-print denim pencil skirt and a voile Simplicity 1377 blouse. I was reminded how much I love the fit of this skirt, and that I should really make more instead of cooking up new versions of the Alberta Street Skirt, which I don't like as much. This top is just meh, though, - it was an early version of my hacked 1377 pattern and the neckline is too wide while the hips are too narrow. I should really retire it but for some reason I hung it back up in my closet.
Day 27: We went to the Strawberry Festival. I was too busy mom-ing to obtain any photos of myself while we were in the mountains with beautiful scenery, so instead I had to pose in front of my front door when we got home. I wore my yellow Simplicity 1887 skirt again, with another, more successful version of the Simplicity 1377 hack, and a Blackwood Cardigan.
Day 28: Church. I wore one an Appleton dress. This one doesn't get much wear anymore for what is probably a silly reason. One of my sisters told me she did not think it was flattering because it makes me look top-heavy. That by itself wouldn't have made me stop wearing it, but I was already a little self-conscious about how tight the back is - I feel like it really illuminates the back flab. Although I was wearing it to church relatively frequently, I did already feel a bit uncomfortable in it. And after my sister's comment, and it hung rather sadly in the closet, unloved, for a few months. My husband was happy to see me in it on this day, though, and I think I'd like to revisit the pattern this fall, perhaps cutting a larger size for the back.
Day 30: It was dreary and spitting rain, and I would have been upset but it was actually the perfect weather for my brand-new Bonn shirt (blog post coming soon), which I paired with my zip-fly Gingers.
And, that's it. Moving forward, I will try to vary my outfits as much as I did this month, instead of wearing the same 10 things over and over again. I have enough clothes to do it, so there's really no excuse. I had gotten so used to not thinking about what I was wearing that I don't think I realized how much variety I actually have in my wardrobe. (Though I don't apologize for wearing the yellow skirt and the linen Bonn so much - I imagine those will continue to be on heavy rotation. They're definitely winners!)
On to summer!
