Dead of Summer





Outfit Details: Sweater, Shorts, Shoes- Goodwill; Shirt- gift from my Bro and Sis-in-law; Tights- We Love Colors; Cape- thrifted and altered.

After a long time of not finding a cape that me and my bank account could both agree on, I got this great idea to make one out of an old jacket. In this case I used a rain coat that I got at Goodwill. I loved the jacket, but it was way too long for me, and didn’t have a belt. It offered to be the guinea pig in my experiment. And I have to say that it came out pretty darn well.



Spring is on it’s way. I’m being told that I should expect another freeze however. I’m not damning it. I know I’ll be dreaming of a winter freeze in the dead of summer.

A few weeks back Robyn of Twitch Vintage said that she was going to try to collect a pair of shorts in every color for spring and summer. I took that idea and ran with it at Goodwill the other day. Six pairs later, I’m ready for the warmer months.

I was thinking about doing one, but wasn't sure if anybody would want one. I'll definitely do one now!
