moo moo monday (a refashion miracle)

I think I’ve lost track of just how many skirts I’ve made this summer, but this one is my favorite so far. A few days ago some of my girlfriends and I met up at a local thrift sale where all items of clothing were $1.00. They all laughed when I added this oversized granny-esque dress to my pile..

 

While shopping, I was mostly focused on fabrics and patterns that appealed to me, and not so much on the style of the garment. Needless to say, this wide ensemble showed some real potential. I knew I’d be making a skirt, but it took a bit of time to figure out how and where to start cutting. Finally I just went for it..

TADA! I’m in love! The lesson here is never judge a book, or in this case a moo moo, by it’s cover (or size). Oh, did I mention it only cost me a dollar? ;)

Happy Monday lovers.

I just have to add one more picture.. My new favorite outfit <3

4 fancy things

petite flower pot

I love how summer always makes me want to add more color to my calm and comfortable neutral pallete. This year I’m kind of crushing on all things blue, and thanks to this little terra cotta gem, my baby maple can grow up in style.

dress pants to summer shorts

Here is a bit of refashion fun. I took some old comfy slacks that were  rather loose, and covered one side with a lace-esque stretchy material and made a cute pair of summer shorts.

I’m always looking for new ways to pretty up the bathroom. This is a plate rack with one plate from the set holding all the basic countertop essentials. I have to admit I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this little display.

orange mango banana sorbet

 On hot summer nights I love to have a cold sweet treat. This frozen refreshment is great because it has only 3 ingredients, and can be enjoyed as a smoothie before you freeze it, as a healthy popcicle, or with a spoon. It’s as simple as slicing up a few mangos and adding some pre frozen bananas and a bit of orange juice. Blend and enjoy as desired!
