  • Blue patent leather shoes (see? I do own shoes other than the Converse sneakers and the slippers I’m usually wearing in photos! I wore these home from work just so I could prove it to you all. 😉 )

And that brings us to half way through the month!

My goal for this weekend – make some new cardigans or jerseys to wear to work so you don’t have to see me wear the same black merino cardigan 5/7 days next week as well……

  1. I find myself wearing the same cardigans over and over again too, so don’t worry about it! I haven’t tried sewing with a knit fabric yet. I’m a bit scared but I’m sure I’ll do it eventually.

  2. Love the necklace 😀
