What I Wore Wednesday

Hi Friends!  I didn't do too bad a job getting up and getting dressed this week; we had a lot going on!  So for this WIWW, I have 5 outfits to share with you!

FINALLY...I made myself something new!!!  I read Caroline Hulse's blog, Sew Caroline, and love her youthful and fresh appraoch to sewing, and now to her new sewing patterns!  The dress I made above is called her "Out and About" dress, and I already cut the fabric to sew another one, I love it so much!  It was very simple (and actually, my first knit project!), and I had been dying for a polka dot dress anyway, so that's what I made.  I wore this to the Moments for Mom night out at the preschool, and it was perfect.  That's the other thing I like about this dress, it's easy to dress up or down; I could just as easily wear it with flip flops as I did with platforms.  I have also bought more fabric (the floral fabric I talked about on Monday) to make Caroline's second dress pattern, the Tank Dress.  So excited!

Navy Polka Dot Dress- Made by Me!
White Platform Sandals- Madden Girl from Macy's
Turquoise Bubble Necklace- Ebay

Looking back at this outfit, I really don't like it very much.  But I guess that's what you get for throwing some clothes on to go to the grocery store without glancing in the mirror before you leave... :)

Aztec Scarf- Charleston Straw Market
Aqua Gauze Button Up- Anthropologie
Distressed Skinnies- Old Navy
White Platform Sandals- Madden girl from Macy's

Total mom outfit!  But it fit the bill for a morning of Catch Air (bouncy house extravaganza place for kids) and Chick Fil A with a dear friend and the littles.  Nothing fancy, all function here, folks.

Gray Striped T- Old Navy
Navy Tassel Scarf- Gap (so the scarf was a little fancy, and not very functional)
Distressed Skinnies- Old Navy
Nude Patent Ballet Flats- Target

Another item here that I am proud to say I made myself!  My top is the Boho Tunic from Pat Bravo patterns, and this is another pattern that I totally love!  It's the second boho tunic I have made, and adjusted the sizing better on this one than on my first try (which turned out fine, just HUGE on me!).  I saw this colorful herringbone chevron months ago, and bought a bunch with the intent on making something really cute with it.  I love how this tunic came out, and plan on making a few more for the summer!  Y'all know how much I like a good tunic. :)

Chevron Herringbone Sleeveless Tunic- Made by Me!
Black Skinny Pants- Gap
Turquoise Sandals- Target
Long Gold Necklaces- Stella & Dot

And lastly, I saw these shorts a while ago, and had to make them mine.  Floral and scalloped??  I had been coveting J.Crew's scalloped shorts for a few years now, and decided I would pounce on these Lilly's.  They are just the right length, though I may actually have to exchange them for a size down (What??  How often does that happen?!), but I really love them.  I love them here, with a loose and casual white swiss dot tunic, and I can definitely see them with an elbow-length striped t shirt for a little pattern mixing.  Either way, they were a slight investment (but still got them on sale and with free shipping!), but I know I'll wear them all summer long.

Neon Floral Scalloped Buttercup Shorts- Lilly Pulitzer at Saks
