Happy Friday everyone!
Bloggers that don't live in Texas are talking about days in the 60 degree temperature range and fall weather, and I'm over here getting drenched in sweat every time I walk to class. Normally I would find this to be very unfair and I would express my longing for days such as the ones Ohio is currently experiencing, but that is not the case today.
Just last week I gushed about fall and though I am still trying to get Texas to get with the program by dressing for the season, I cannot help but love the summer days that Texas is still providing for me. My dear friend Grace over at My Spare Oom brought up a wonderful point the other day about the changing of seasons, both physically and in life. It is a wonderful post and I highly suggest you give it a look.
Obviously a large part of me is still reaching for fall though. I just wanna wear earthy colour forever and ever. The rust colour of this top just makes my heart melt. I love it and I actually own this top in two different colours. Why? Because it is perfect. The phrase 'if you love it, buy it in every colour' is so true.
Fun fact about this skirt. It used to be a dress that Jessica handed down to me, however it didn't quite fit in the top area *ahem* so I decided to fix it up a bit. I separated the skirt part of the dress from the top to create two separate pieces; a crop top and a skirt. I've done this with another dress of mine, and you can see the top here.
I absolutely loved the way it turned out and for a while I had the urge to cut up all my dresses. I would not recommend doing that by the way. I didn't even sew this one to make it fit. I simply left the edges raw, grabbed a sash from another dress and tied it around my waist. It was a bit of a hassle to constantly make sure that my skirt was still sitting well, but I didn't mind too much.
Now, let's talk about my necklace. The baby harmonica ACTUALLY PLAYS. It takes all of my willpower to keep it away from my face every time I wear it. I should note that I cannot play the harmonica by any means, especially this baby one, but boy is it sure fun to pretend. It is definitely one of my favourite Jewelmint purchases ever. It is cute and it serves a purpose of some sort; in this case entertainment.
Anyways, that is it for today my friends. Thanks so much for stopping by to read this week's Fly Friday post. See y'all around!
