So I decided to start a new “series”, where I quickly document what I wore as my actual outfit for the day. No guarantees this will be a frequent or lengthy series (read: it will be sporadic and random) but I will do my best!
I made a Mama Nina earlier with a different color of rayon spandex, but I like this lovely olive better. It’s such a beautiful shade; perfect for summer and fall. I’m always one for earth tones. I also love jewel tones and have a lot of rayon spandex in those colors that I can’t wait to sew up too.
I really like the high-low hem on this dress (despite the awkward back shot here – it was windy and this is the best one I got!). I actually cut between the tunic and dress lengths for this one, since I am fan of shorter dresses. Usually the dress length on dresses hits me about here, but I think this one was drafted a little longer on purpose. I also like them a little shorter so that I throw on some leggings in the winter. When tunics/dresses are longer, I’m not always a fan of the look with leggings so I tried to get the best of both worlds here. It’s probably because I’m used to my legs looking unusually long, so when they look “normal” I get confused. 🙂
Also, I can’t say enough about how comfortable this dress is in rayon spandex! Talk about a good way to beat the heat of August. Although, when I walked home it was a little cooler and breezier, which was nice.
I also played up the complimentary colors thing and wore my purple earrings from a fellow Etsy seller, Candyandie Creations. I took these pictures as soon as I got home and didn’t change anything about what I was wearing, so I’m proud of myself for thinking to put earrings on in the morning. I’m clearly not a fashionista. Ha! But I thought that this dress could use some statement jewelry and I love the earrings.
Well, that’s it – until next time! Hopefully I will remember to do these more often. 🙂
