Waters Wears: Lace Embellished Tee

I’ve been wanting to get back into sharing outfit posts more regularly, so here’s a little one. I’m really pleased with this new lace top I got recently. I’ve been looking for t-shirts that have a bit of embellishment, like a floral print, polka dots, lace, etc. I have a good set of solid color tees now, and since I wear them a lot around the house but also out and about, I’ve been getting a little bored with them.

When I originally started posting outfits, one of the goals was to share outfits that included an item of clothing or accessory that I’d made, altered, or mended in some way. I made this necklace years ago and I still like it.

I wore this to my younger cousin’s baby shower. A little dressy, but also comfortable for chasing my nearly two-year-old around trying to keep him from destroying things. (Oh, toddlers.)

Waters Wears: Tied T-Shirt

I had intentions of getting outdoor pictures of this outfit since it’s been a LONG time since I’ve had outfit pictures outside of my house on this blog, but alas, we’ve had rain since this morning.

I saw another pregnant lady wearing this style, and I thought it was great. Wear a skirt or dress and tie your pre-belly tees at empire waist level. Gives you a way to continue wearing them throughout even the later months of pregnancy.

I’m still figuring out how to put together outfits as this pregnancy progresses, but though it feels a little rocky at points, I think I’m getting there. Trying to figure out ways to wear as much as I can from my normal wardrobe, while buying mostly maternity items that will also work after the baby is born.

Long Lost Outfit

So I was pregnant in these pictures, but I didn’t know it yet. ;) These pictures never got uploaded back then, but I really liked this outfit, so I figured I’d go ahead and post them now.

My husband got me this ring from a cool booth at a local Highlands festival a few years ago. I wish I could remember their company name, but I can’t.

I love high-waisted things, and these jeans turned out to be pretty comfy.

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Project-Styled Outfits

I’ve tried a few little crochet experiments the past couple weeks and I wanted to share them here. (By the way, if you check out my Instagram I sometimes share sneak peeks and work-in-progress shots, and also copious amounts of cat photos. So if you’re into that :), give it a look.)

green boxy dress 1

I mentioned in a post a little while ago a list of crochet projects I wanted to try, and I’m thinking I can technically mark “make a boxy top” off my list. I’m pretty satisfied with this first one, and it’s so simple that it can be easily altered ie. changing length/width/stitch pattern/sleeves or no sleeves, which makes me even happier with it.

I was going to try a more open stitch, but I decided I wanted to see what it looked like with triple crochet/9mm hook/Caron Simply Soft. I’m pretty happy with how it looks, and I also think this top might look great in a Solomon’s Knot stitch.

I decided to go with a little bit of a longer length probably from being inspired by the style of the likes of Hackwith Design House, Martha W. McQuade, and tons of baggy, boxy tunics and dresses on Pinterest. All in all, I’m pretty happy with this tunic/dress thing, and there are only maybe a few slight tweaks I’d make. I won’t be wearing it out until it gets a bit chillier, however; it’s way to hot to even be thinking about wearing a full crochet dress right now.

The next couple outfits I put together to style some jewelry I’ve made recently. While I’m definitely an amateur when it comes to jewelry, I do play around with it (mostly crochet-related) occasionally, as you may have seen before here and here. This time I’ve been experimenting with crocheted tube beads and having probably more fun than I should have making Tunisian crochet rings and bracelets from mercerized cotton thread.

I threw this outfit together from some things I’ve worn recently just to share this jewelry, but I really, really like it! I’m probably gonna’ wear some form of it out as soon as I have a reason to. It’s just so colorful and lovely.
