Many days, many ways link up!

Woah! It's be awhile, eh? I got the second job I talked about in my last post! The only hard part is I work 45-50 hours a week and I wear a uniform to each job :/ BUT! Today is my first day off from both jobs in about three weeks! It's so refreshing. 

I'm doing a link up today with Danielle from the Goodwillista. We're two girls who sure do love thrifting! This link up is called "many days many ways." It's all about using one item from your closet and seeing how many different outfits you can come up with! I decided to go with a leather pencil skirt. At my second job I have to dress professionally and I can only wear black, white, light pink, and grey. But I wanted to have a way to go from work to a date with my husband or to run errands or attend church and spruce up the skirt a little more. Here are my 10 ways to wear my leather skirt:
brown & black//chambray & azrecfunky sweatshirt//leapord printpeplum top//polka dot dress over skirt & fur vestplaid & a beanie//chambray with an infinity scarfcrop top//chunky sweater & chambray

You should join along! Link up using the widget below. The linkup will stay open for about a month! I'd love to see what you come up with! Add the bottom to your post as well!!

P A R T II: Peppin' Through the Forrest


top: self made, skirt, sweater, belt: thrifted, shoes: Charlotte Russe, tights: Walmart

Well, hi there folks! It's been a weeeeek! I've worked a lot and my uniform isn't that exciting to photograph ;) One of the things I hate about working is having to wear a uniform! I wear blue jeans and A black shirt everyday and it gets old. I have an interview tomorrow with a company I'd really love to work for. Fingers crossed I get it! Having two jobs will be tough, but I know it will benefit Rob and me. 

Anywho, here's another peplum I made! I originally planned on this peplum just being the polka dot fabric. But I ran out of that fabric and had to improvise. Fellow sewers: don't you hate when you do that?! I sure do. But I think the white made it really fun!

Three more tops to go, bro.

P A R T I: Peppin' Through the Forrest


peplum: made by me, pants & belt: thrifted, sweater: h&m (old), booties: famous footwear

For my last semester at BYU-Idaho I took a class called "Line Collection." It was my final sewing class for my degree and it was a class where we made our own clothing line. I chose to make a line of peplum tops and the title of my line was "Peppin' Through the Forrest." This project is very near and dear to my heart. I spent countless hours over sketches and fabric choices and the construction of each top. I wanted this line to resemble me and my aesthetic. I was able to complete 5 peplum tops and I want to share each one with all of you if that's alright!

This peplum is probably my favorite! I thrifted the floral awhile back and it was the inspiration for my line. The green checkered fabric is actually a sheet that my grandpa gave me. For my line I tried to only use fabrics that were second hand. 

I hope you enjoy this little series of mine! My goal for 2013 was to make my own line and I did just that! I'm extremely proud of myself for doing so. It was worth all of the blood, sweat, and tears. Just kidding about the blood part ;)
