First of all, let me just say I am so super excited to be the featured blogger of the week over at Myriad Musings!!! I was thrilled to receive Saumya’s e-mail yesterday. Please go over to her blog and check out which of my looks is featured.
Next on my list of things to say is my look today is because of Myriad Musings. Saumya gives a weekly link up party featuring a different theme each week. This week’s theme is monochromatic. I could have gone with any color, but I have had this look in the back of my mind for a while now. This week’s theme just brought it straight to the forefront, so here we are.
This black and white striped skirt and polka dot bow blouse are two of my very favorite pieces in my whole closet. Both pieces were made by me at completely separate times. They each fell into my sewing category of “I Really want this, but cannot find it anywhere!” I first fell in love with this Polka Dot Top by White House Black Market that MK of Outfit Posts wore. It was sold out and after searching and searching I decided to take on the project myself.
The skirt inspiration came from falling in love with countless black and white striped skirts on Pinterest and not being able to find exactly what I wanted. At least not at a price I was willing to pay, or a length I was willing to wear. I think now there are more option out there I would consider, but at the time I just couldn’t find anything.
