What I Wore to Work Today: Thu, June 10

Jacket and jeans: Goodwill
Black t-shirt and plaid wedges: Target
Red necklace and clear earrings: Claire’s

We moved floors at work on Thursday and everybody moving into a new cubicle got a casual day, I guess because they thought people doing lots of bending down and picking up things should get to do it in jeans if they wanted to.

What I Wore to Work Today: Mon, June 7

Sweater: Old Navy
Skirt: Goodwill, successfully altered down to my size (which is why I’m generously labeling this a Refashion post)
Shoes: Target
Sunglasses: Target

See the little red squares on my ankles?  That’s sunburn.  I went tubing on Saturday and missed a few spots during the multiple sunscreen reapplications.  I was wearing old Goodwill sneakers in the river and didn’t reapply right at the edge of the shoe; I missed under my left arm, which normally doesn’t get much sun, except the area was exposed as I was resting with my arms up on the tube in the water; in front of my right armpit; and a little spot on my sternum at the edge of my swimsuit top.  My knees are a bit pink too, although I don’t expect them to peel.  Not bad overall for 4+ hours of midday, 107 degree sun.

Refashion: red plaid shorts

After: Cute little red plaid shorts that fit

Before: Knee-length shorts from Goodwill that are too big.  Um, I might have been trying to wear them anyway over the objections of reasonable passersby…

Refashion: purple skirt to apron

In the last week before moving to my new apartment I was feeling on edge.  I realized that part of it was because I hadn’t done any sewing for awhile and I really wanted to be able to see a completed project, something creative and new and not just another taped up box to cross of the list of my old life.  Even though I had plenty of practical moving-related tasks I could have been doing instead, I pulled out a skirt from my refashioning pile and turned it into an apron.  I used lavender fabric for one side of the ties and black fabric for the other side and the waistband.  It was simple, easy, quick, and satisfying.  I boxed up my sewing supplies that night.
