Warm Colors {What I Wore Sunday}





Skirt: Made by me / Tank: Old Navy / Sweater: Thrifted (by Spotted Moth) / Necklace: Claire's

You probably can't tell from the pictures, but this skirt turned out rather odd, with a very uneven hem that I didn't notice until it was too late to change my outfit! I was staying overnight babysitting my cousins and thought to try the skirt on before bed to see if my outfit plan was all right, and the very first thing I noticed was that awful hem! I didn't have any of my seeing supplies, and no pins to tack it up, but I did manage to find a tiny safety pin to tack it in place until I could fix it at home. What a blessing that I had discovered it that night instead of in the chaos of getting ready for church in the morning!

This cardigan was a very cool find...I spotted it randomly on my way out of Goodwill, laid over a rack. The knitted pattern caught my eye, and when I picked it up, I saw that not only was it my size, but it had the 50% off tag attached! Needless to say, I scooped it up immediately. The color is very different for me, but I do like its warm tones.

I hope you all are having a lovely week!
