Waters Wears: Quince & Co. Striped Shell Stitch Infinity Scarf

I wore this outfit as my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on a very, very cold night. It features my finished scarf using Quince & Co. Finch in glacier and chanterelle, which I am so happy with. The yarn is a lovely, soft, squishy wool, and an infinity scarf is still a favorite of mine.

As for the hat, I crocheted that as well several years ago. Beret style used to be a favorite of mine, but I honestly don’t wear it really at all now. I wound up pulling this one from my closet while I was looking for a hat that worked with this outfit colorwise. I originally wanted a beanie style, but this worked.

By the way, I love this skirt. I got it from my sister-in-law’s grandmother after a closet clean out. I love the paisley pattern, the colors, and the fact that it has a bit of form which makes it a bit of statement piece. I’ve worn it before for holiday parties, and tend to pair it with a tighter fitting top to balance out its flare.

Waters Wears: (Belated) Birthday Dress

My birthday was March 23th, and my husband and I had plans to hang out in a local downtown area for the day. The weather didn’t allow us, however, so we took a raincheck and spent the day hanging out with some friends instead. This past Sunday we made it up. As you can see by the photos, it was a pretty windy day, but the sun was out, so it was nice to walk around and see the city.

If you can’t tell by the photos, I always wear shorts under a dress or skirt – or rather, an old pair of leggings cut off and folded up – and it was certainly a wonderful decision this day. haha

The bracelets are a little experiment that I quite like. They are simply made of leather and mercerized cotton crochet thread.

This dress may just be one of my favorites. I love the whole high-low thing, but this is the first dress I’ve had that actually has that hemline. It was available in this color and a light pink, but I was drawn to this one first and chose it because I love the earthiness of it and the fact that it’s a color I could accent with pretty much any other color.

Though I usually take the pictures myself, my husband helped some with these. We had a fun day eating lunch and then walking around, me scouting for good picture-taking locations and him playing Ingress on his phone, a neat game that utilizes local landmarks, churches, historical sites, and artwork. It was nice to finally have a somewhat warm day to be out in.
