What I'm Wearing | I'm Feeling Blue!

7:45 PM


Today was chilly and rainy and it was a perfect opportunity to pull out my McCall's 5525 trench jacket.
Once the rain stopped, my daughter and I went to lunch and walked it off! I'm lucky enough to live in an area that has so many beautiful places right outside my front door.
And I'm wearing one of my favorite, go to hats that I crocheted a gazillion years ago.  Did y'all even remember that I could crochet and that this was originally a crocheting blog?! LOL  Then it was a knitting blog and then sewing...  When you've been blogging for as long as I have, you have to keep moving forward and evolving.  
I decided to do some denim on denim.  This seems to be the trendy thing to do.  And it seems to be appropriate as long as the shades of blue are different.  
Worn with DKNY denim shirt; GAP skinny jeans; leather crossbody messenger bag and Sam Edelman boots.


I had never (to my knowledge) seen a duck like this.  I googled "red-faced duck" which lead me to the Muschovy Duck.  I guess this is what these are.  They were our walking companions!

  2. I've had every intention of making another trench, one very Burberry-esque for a while now. I'm moving it higher on my list! Thanks!
