This title is quite literal as these pictures and events were done before my dad and I were to attend a sewing class called Sewing 101 at Joann. Although I already knew how to use my sewing machine, I still had some issues with it and my dad wanted to learn how to sew so we took this class. Although we learned the very basics I think it helped us to understand the machines better and I was actually able to keep my thread from getting stuck this time!
Back to the before events… Being a, now, working kid and wanting to break old habits I’ve recently been trying to take care of my nails and paint them (which makes me less likely to bite them). This time I wanted something cute but not over-the-top. As a result I painted little ladybirds on my nails with some nail pens that I had never really used. The only downside of doing this was that I had no top coat so the designs got a little cracked.
As for my attire of the day, I wrote a slightly oversized cat tee with some shorts and sneakers. My default on a more relaxed day is normally just a causal tee and some sweats, or shorts for the summer.
Now, you may be wondering why I’m in a fitting room (or not). Almost right before the class started, my dad took me to get some pants at the Tommy Hilfiger outlet store at the mall where I work. I am honestly lacking in genuine pants… So, I picked out a cute navy pair with little white polka-dots. As I was there I remembered that I had also wanted a polo, something I have only one of and it doesn’t even fit anymore because I must’ve been much younger when I got it.
Above is the polo I picked out paired with the pants I got. Initially, I hadn’t realized the two were matching. Although I could easily just go out with these and even my grey converse, it just seemed like too much color matching, which tends to show a lack of creativity (this “rule” can always be broken though, if it’s done right). I have since worn them separately with other things in my closet.
I hope you enjoyed this post and my attempt at giving style tips. More content is soon to come!
