Pink shirt with chambray skirt, denim jacket, and western boots

Skirt: eShakti (fall 2011)
Shirt: hand-knit, myself (spring 2011)
Cami: Lane Bryant (spring 2011)
Earrings: Lane Bryant (summer 2009)
Necklace: Clair’s (fall 2009)
Shoes: Rocket Dog, DSW (fall 2011)

This morning, I didn’t like anything in my closet. I tried on about nine different outfits, and hated every single one. I only settled on this because I was running out of time, if I didn’t want to be late going into the office. However, by the time I got in and looked at the photos, and at myself again, I liked it more and more.

Bombshell (handknit shirt)

This shirt, Bombshell from Big Girl Knits, was knit specifically to pack for the rockabilly festival. Its pin-up inspired curves were exactly what I wanted in a spring (or fall) sweater. It’s knit with KnitPicks Shine, which is a totally lovely yarn to work with. I may also do this sweater again in a yummy wool, with longer sleeves and hemline for winter.

Western-style ankle boots

Last weekend, Matt and I went on an errand-running day of adventure, part of which was spent at DSW. Matt always comes out with more shoes than I do, but I did manage to snag two pair of boots, all for under $150, including this pair of western-style ankle boots. They are super comfortable! The heel has a nice give to it, so when I’m walking it’s not all “clack clack clack” along the ground, making it easier on my feet. I want to wear these boots with every outfit.

  1. I didn’t have any other suitable shoes. Well, I could have worn my brown heels, but not with socks. I only seem to have black or grey flats. That may need to change.

    Those boots are so cute! Also, I’m crazy impressed that you knitted that yourself–a friend taught me how to do basic knitting a while ago, and I had a hard enough time just making something bookmark-sized. What a gorgeous color to knit something in, too.

  3. The pink is fantastic. I used to hate the color, but now I keep an eye out for pinks like this one.

    I spent the weekend at the sheep and wool festival, and wore a new handknit sweater! I’ll be posting that later today. After about 4 years of knitting hats and scarves, I am just now starting to knit sweaters. Once you get the hang of it, it’s quite addictive. Sweaters for everyone!
