Late Again

I was supposed to wake up and go to the art supply store (which owns my soul and all my money!) with my friend Shannon, but I overslept and kept her waiting for half an hour. I'm sorry Shannon! Regardless, she was a great sport about helping me take outfit photos today. I was mostly late because I had no idea what to wear. I knew that today would be one of the only sunny days this week. Wow, that sounds really bad (am I prioritizing blogging over friends and school? Hopefully I won't go down that slippery slope!). 

This dress is my favorite. It's my go-to piece when I'm stumped, probably because the pattern compliments a lot of different colored pieces.It used to have long sleeved and a higher neckline, back when it hung in my grandmother's wardrobe. She had no reservations when I asked her if I could use some of her old frocks for a project, probably because she was the one who taught me to sew in the first place. It's one of like, two dresses that were still wearable after I took scissors and thread to them. Perhaps this summer it would be in my best interest to take a sewing class.
