Outfit Post – Be Mine

Sorry to have been a bit MIA here, darling ones.  I came down with an awful flu about three weeks ago that I couldn’t seem to shake..and then it turned into pneumonia (yuck!).  I’m finally on the mend and starting to feel human again, so I was moved to post my outfit for the day 🙂

Create 365 is moving right along, though at a slower pace than I anticipated before getting ill!  I have been working on writing my very first fair isle knitting pattern for a pair of wristwarmers and I hope to complete them and have the pattern up here on the blog very soon.

Wishing you all a love filled Valentine’s Day!

Hugs and Smooches,

Outfit Post – Mary Jane

My apologies, friends, for the slightly lackluster outfit post..I have been channeling all my creative energy into creating holiday gifts and find that it is sapping my wardrobe creativity a bit..(Confession..I did not want to take off my vintage MTV hoodie and yoga pants today..I might have cried a little.)

I’m also finding that I’ve put on a little “winter fluff”.  I tend to crave comfort foods as the cold weather rolls in and it makes it a bit harder to throw an outfit together when some of my clothes have become a little too snug 😉

Never fear!  I have a few vacation days coming up that I will be devoting to finishing up all my holiday preparations and then I should be right as rain.

Hugs and Smooches,

Outfit Post – Absinthe

Up until a few years ago, I firmly believed that I could not wear the color green, as I was certain it washed me out and gave my skin a yellow cast.  Until I discovered this particularly vibrant shade (kelly green, maybe?) that brightens up my face and makes my eyes look peacock blue.  Now I’m totally in love with it 😉

Do you have a particular shade that you like to wear?

Outfit Post – Bobbed Hair and Coral Scarf

It’s been a while since I did an outfit post!  Bet you were forgetting what I looked like 😉  Well, here I am with my brand new haircut.  A little shorter than I’m comfortable with, but after it grows a little, I think it will work just fine.

I also finished up my coral scarf using this pattern.  It’s VERY simple and great if you just want something to work on without having to thing about it.  I may try it next with a bigger hook and larger yarn for a more tree branch-like effect.

Hugs and Smooches,
