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.
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.
