I like to call this type of outfit "casual fancy." It's something that I feel like works well for everyday stuff, like going to a coffee shop, lounging around, going to class. It's comfortable enough for regular day to day stuff, but you could definitely wear it out with girlfriends or on a date. I feel like this challenge is actually helping me breathe new life into items I like but haven't been inspired to wear in some time. This skirt is a favorite, but I've only worn it a couple times about a year ago. It's funny how something as basic as a black tee can be inspiration to wear things that you haven't worn in while.
Even though I was forced inside by rain for these photos, spring is definitely here. My first year in Tacoma the winter and spring were awful and by the time they were over I was so ready to move back to Alaska. Thankfully the past two springs have been much more gentle with some sunny interludes between the grey, rainy stretches. I need to plant my seeds and get my starters going indoors so I'll be able to plant my garden next month! I also need to build some more beds, I really want to expand my garden this year. I made wooden ones out of 2x6's last year, but I found these beautiful corrugated metal raised beds from Oh Dear Drea and I'm totally smitten with them. What are you guys most excited for with spring's arrival?
