Many Colors and Even More Sunshine








For some reason, *ahem* the blinding SUN, it was really hard to get good photos of this outfit! Which is a shame, because I really like it!

This fabric was one of a few I picked up from an Etsy seller based in India a few years ago. They had sooo many good prints and the fabrics were really inexpensive, so I was bummed when the shop later disappeared from Etsy! I haven't done much fabric shopping lately, but hopefully that will change soon as I have so many fabrics on my wish list! I do already have a ton of fabrics still in my stash, but when has that ever stopped anyone from wanting more fabric? I have no motivation to use the fabric I already have, I have ideas for things that require different fabric of course! I must get over this aversion and use what I already have in stock or I'll never get any sewing done this summer :)

I hope you are all having a great week, I'm trying my best to get lost of work done but finding it difficult to sustain the energy required to do so. I want to wave a magic wand and turn the pile of fabric on my ironing board into finished clothing in a flash. Unfortunately I have no such wand, so hopefully I can accomplish these goal the old fashioned way somehow. I'd rather be lazy and watch Ghibli movies all day, I don't feel like adulting this week even if I did turn 26 on Monday! Hopefully my desire for new dresses will outweigh my desire to procrastinate my sewing.

Ah July, it always sneaks up on me and the heat always leaves me more lethargic than I'd like. Still, the middle of summer approaches, and soon we get glorious, incomparably wonderful....autumn! There were pumpkin decorations already at the craft store today, and I was happy to see them <3

  1. Utterly, utterly beautiful. That first photo - truly like something from professional shoot - is perhaps one of my favourites of all your photos. The colours are just amazing, and as ever you have accessorised to perfection! Kx

    1. Thank you Nora! I think this was the first A-line shaped dress I made a few years ago and now I'm all about an A-line skirt shape :)

  6. Fabulous print! I love the bold floral and the bright colors, it absolutely screams summer. The red accessories are pitch perfect - that broad brimmed hat is divine, and perfect for a bright summer day!

  8. That is lovely. So cheery and bright. I'm planning to buy fabric on my trip to India - even if it only ends up as cushion covers, it has to be done.

    1. Thanks Mim! I think I will need an extra suitcase if I ever travel to India just for all of the fabric I would want to buy! Same goes for Japan and vintage kimono <3
