In my place.






Outfit Details:
Cropped eyelet top (also available in mint) - courtesy of Ruche
lace button up - H&M
woodstock bag - R&Em
May five pocket jeans - courtesy of Hudson
blazer style sweater by Aryn K.- ModCloth (super on sale!)
Romance boots - courtesy of Seychelles
Lipstick - Julie Hewett cheekie in Bette

I've been taking a lot of pictures in my room, lately - have you noticed? That's how I know Spring is approaching (that, and being able to wear shorts on occasion). During the colder months and shorter days, my room barely gets any sunlight and it's just a freezing little cave that is solely used for sleeping. As Spring approaches and the days get longer, the sunlight starts to creep into my room for little stretches here and there. Happy happy. I might even move my sewing machines back into my "office" now that I don't have to fear hypothermia. I say "office" because it's about the size of a walk in closet, but hey - I'll take what I can get.

Speaking of sewing, I have a whole lot of that to do, so I'm going to put down the computer and get back to work. Tomorrow I might take the afternoon off to check out some of the lipsticks you all kindly recommended, so I'll let you know how that goes!

  9. Ms_SyllyBee: The mint matches my walls! I almost ordered it on that principle alone.

    Meghan: It's on sale for $29.99 and so worth the price. Super soft and comfy.

    Eclectic Flair: She hears your cries and I promise she will make more appearances.

  25. Love the perfect little top paired with the lace. I know what you mean,it's super freezing in our new house too! It was built in the 1800's and has radiator heat..hate. I've been confined to one room with my little electric heater,can't wait for spring!

  54. My biggest challenge has been bringing up my two li’l kids. Financial assistance for single mothers is a concern. My single mom status is a red flag, not a plus point.

  59. Wow! Your blog is full of beauty! I was wondering if your post title "In my place" was inspired by the Coldplay song (In my place)?

    Really cool top!
