Keepin' Busy

 I got this dress at Goodwill, because I loved the color, the cutouts, and the buttons on the back. It was extremely too large and fit me like a Mumu, and we all know just how flattering those are. I had the idea of making it a separate top and skirt, because I think it looks adorable together and makes for great outfits separately as I've shown below. All I did was cut it in half, fold the ends, and sew it leaving enough room to push the elastic through using a safety pin. Pushing the safety pin through is a relaxing process for me and rather fun (this is a lie, I find it annoying, and I just pretend it's my favorite thing in the world so I can trick myself into thinking I'm having the best time ever).

  Anyways, it's a quick and easy process of altering a dress that may not fit quite right. I think it has this nice vintage Latina flare, and I've been really into midriff shirts lately ever since I fell in love with high waist bottoms. I did get worried that I may now have too many crop tops, but then I told myself that was silly, and our summers are so hot that I'll be glad for my overzealous sewing of midriff shirts.

I visited Allen again last weekend in Cullman, and it was not as eventful, but there were so many disasters (i.e. the dog chewing to bits my favorite sandals). I have to say that I love that no matter what happens, Allen and I just laugh at it together and end up closer at the end of the day. We had to leave a lot earlier than I originally thought, and I swear what happened when we were leaving was just like a movie and just like us. We both said our goodbyes and drove off in our separate ways. I ended up turning around, and I'm not really sure why, but I felt like it was something I should do. As I was driving back to the house, I saw Allen driving up to it as well. I laughed and rolled down the window and he said, "So you turned around too?" We then talked for a good bit (more like 4 hours. I cried for 2 of them like a huge baby! Thanks again love for putting up with that.) in a parking lot and then actually left. He made me that necklace in the above photo out of a guitar string, and it's now my favorite piece of jewelry. It's my reminder that he's thinking about me as well while he's away.

Till next time,



  1. Very cute! Quite gypsy looking with the skirt too. Of course it looks fab on you with your 10 inch waist :)

  2. Love it! You're at the age where this type of outfit works beautifully. And it does. Coupled with your adorable facial expressions, you're as cute as a kitten!

  3. Omg thats the cutest outfit! I love the cut outs! I want to get a sewing machine and learn to sew again.... i used to as a kid but stopped for some reason. Of the drawn out good bye, Gentleman Friend and I talked about how the Hard out is an easier way, because its like "Well babe its 1, Im gone" As oposed to "Do i have to go? but your so warm and snuggley!!!"
