color week::burnt siena

It's blurry, and I like it.  And I'm not sure it qualifies as burnt sienna, and it was taken in the summer rather than in the fall, but I still like it.

I've been thinking about this post.  A lot.  I was actually thinking about it before I read it (via Wisecraft), but it was one of those moments where someone else (both of them, really) captured my thoughts better than I could have myself.  Even if I'm not in the fighting shape I was pre-kiddo, I really do feel better when I look better.  So today, I'm wearing a jean skirt, a top with a little flounce, and some silver hoops.  And wouldn't you know it, I feel pretty good.

Three goals:

1)  Find some flattering pants (not jeans--love jeans, wear them every day).  Have them altered if necessary for a proper fit.
2)  Buy 5 tops that are not solid or knit.  Everything I own is solid and knit.
3)  Make two things for myself for this fall--one sewn, one knit (not knit like in #2, knit like this).  In so doing, force myself to spend some time on making for me.

In the meantime, off to do some shopping--maybe I'll find a top in burnt siena.


  1. I really liked that post, too. (I also found it via wisecraft.) Good luck with your endeavor. Oh, and this is def. burnt sienna. ;)

  2. That is a spectacular piece of architecture! and yes I'd say it sure passes as Burnt Siena. I couldn't agree more with you on the wardrobe thing - I'm an at home mum and changed my sloppy dress 2 years ago - it makes me feel so much more motivated and a part of the world when I make an effort in the morning. Go for it!
