My First Zipper Pouch

While putting the finishing touches on my Go Green Tote, I realized I had a quite a bit of red fabric leftover, so I decided to make a quick trip to Joann's Fabric Store to pick up some coordinating fabric to make a zipper pouch, Kindle case, and sunglass pouch out of my scraps.  However,  I've never learned how to sew on a zipper, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, I eventually figured it out.  So, from start to finish it only took me a couple of hours to complete my pouch and it was so worth it because I made it.  I can't wait to finish my tote and start making my new Kindle case and sunglass pouch.  When I'm done with my tote, I will post photos, so you can see how everything turned out.

Brown Canvas


Blouse (Old Navy), Jeans MNG by Mango via (JC Penney), Brown Sandals (Nine West), Hobo Onna Ehrlich via (Hautelook), Watch Michael Kors via (ebay), Basilissa-Pave Bracelet via (Ily Couture), Devi Bangles (Stella & Dot), and Sunnies (Forever 21) not pictured.

For today's outfit I decided to wear a blouse I purchased from Old Navy several months ago off their clearance rack for $6.  However, after buying it for whatever reason I didn't think that I had anything in my closet to pair with it, so it hung in my closet all summer.  On Sunday I decided to take out my two strand twists and I thought what better day to wear my blouse than on Monday, I knew with my big afro, my blouse and pair of shoes I'd have that 70's theme going on.  Of course while taking pictures my oldest son tells me I look like I'm from the 70's with my outfit and big afro.  HA!!

So I decided to pair my blouse with bootcut jeans, brown sandals and hobo by Onna Ehrlich which by the way will be on sale tomorrow on Hautelook so you may want to stop by and check it out, and gold accessories.

Gray Skies

Gray Sleeveless Dress (Banana Republic), Pink Flower Pin (Forever 21), Gray Suede Pumps (Nine West), Watch Burberry via (Macy's), Handbag Givenchy via (Bergdorf Goodman), and Cape ( New York & Company) not pictured, and Sunnies House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea via (Amazon).

Today I decided to wear a Gray Sleeveless Dress I purchased at Banana Republic a couple of years ago, this dress literally hung in my closet brand new with tags until this past April when I lost weight.  On a couple of occasions I almost gave it away to Goodwill and a consignment shop, but for whatever reason I couldn't.  However, after losing my weight I was able to fit into it, I so happy I didn't give it away;)

Although this is my second time wearing my dress, I wanted to wear it again for my blog and before the weather changed.  So I decided to pair my Gray Sleeveless Dress with a black skinny belt, gray suede pumps, a pink flower pin, black handbag and silver watch.

Birds of a Feather

Print Ruffle Tank Top MNG for Mango via (JC Penney), Capris (New York & Company), Sandals (Payless ShoeSource), Tote (Zara), Gold Chain Bracelet (Forever 21), Renegade Cluster Bracelet (Stella & Dot), Red Bracelet Lullu D Jewelry via (etsy), Gold Zig Zag Ring (Asos), and Sunnies (Forever 21).

My outfit for today is a Print Ruffle Tank Top I recently purchased at JCPenney's while I was looking around the store to see if they had anything.  While I was there I absolutely fell in love with the red, white and blue bird print and ruffles on the top.  I also, thought the colors on the top made it look really festive and fun.   Although the top was on sale for only $14,  it's still on sale now in stores and online.  So I decided to pair my top with red capris, flat sandals, a tote, and red and gold accessories.

I thought I would do something different to switch up my style, so I decided on colorblocking.  What's Colorblocking?  Combining a solid colored piece with a different solid colored piece, for example a red blouse and a blue skirt.  A Pre-Colorblocked piece has two different solid colors on it instead of one solid color.  Both combinations look great when styled.

Anyway, I purchased my blouse from Romwe this past spring and I've been dying to wear it, but didn't think I had anything to pair it with.  Who would have thought I all this time I already had a pair of orange capris hanging in my closet that looks great with it.  I decided to pair my shirt with orange capris, a pair of nude wedges, a tote, and my new Ily Bracelet.

This week has been a very busy week for me because my church has been running their Vacation Bible School Program in the evenings.  Also, since I'm a member of our Children's Ministry Department I've helped run one of the VBS stations.  However, I'm still trying to keep up with my daily posts.
My outfit today, I actually wore a couple days ago but decided to go ahead and post about it.  It's a Floral T-Shirt I purchased from H&M, if you remember it was featured on an earlier post of mine about my Sunday Shopping Trip.  I decided to wear this Floral T-Shirt because it's still hot here in Indy and I love wearing bright colors which are on the front of the shirt.  I paired the shirt with an orange pair of capris, nude wedges, a color blocked clutch, and accessories. Enjoy!

Yesterday was a laid back day for me, my boys had a birthday party to go to in the afternoon, so I decided to go and run some errands.  While out, I picked up a bottle of Essie Nail Polish called Meet me at Sunset (not shown) and a few other goodies.

Anyway, my outfit for the day is a paisley T-Shirt I purchased from H&M awhile ago.  I chose this T-Shirt because I loved the pattern and colors, I decided to pair the T-Shirt with khaki shorts, espadrille wedges, a coral handbag, and accessories.

PS...I will also include a picture of my toes tomorrow...Enjoy!
