brown clogs

[Image description: two pairs of two photos of a woman standing outdoors in front of a tall, leafy hedge, each pair including one a full-length shot and the other three-quarters. She is white and has dark brown hair, short on the sides and worn curly off to one side on top. She wears tortoiseshell and pale pink-framed glasses. She wears a floral jumpsuit with a fitted, sleeveless top and full, pleated trousers and pink clogs in one pair and a navy blue jumpsuit with a fitted, sleeveless top and full trousers and brown clogs in the second pair.]

So I made a couple more of these jumpsuits over the summer and have been living in them. 

Jumpsuit: made by me | Shoes: Dansko

Thick, intense, curly, frizzy, long brown hair. Hair that clogs a drain after one shower. Hair you find on pillows and in corners of the room and in your refrigerator six months after the head from which it grew last visited. Hair that could not be straightened even if you had four hours and three hairdressers double-fisting blow driers. Hair that screams: Jew.

She is white and has dark brown hair, short on the sides and worn curly off to one side on top. She wears glasses with tortoiseshell and clear frames. She wears a dress with a lily-pad patterned top in cream, mustard, and blue, and a faux-wrap skirt in mustard, and brown clogs.]

This dress always makes me feel like I should be on a beach sipping a drink out of a coconut. Alas!

She is white and has dark brown hair, short on the sides and worn curly off to one side on top. She wears sunglasses with gold and tortoiseshell frames. She wears a dress and crop top in mauve with cream-colored swordfish printed on them, a floral head kerchief, and brown clogs.]

If you’ve got a ton of errands to do on a day you haven’t washed your hair, might as well go all out on the vintage inspiration and add a cute floral head kerchief!

[Image description: two photos of a woman standing indoors, one a full-length shot and the other three-quarters. She is white and has dark brown hair, short on the sides and worn curly off to one side on top. She wears glasses with frames that are tortoiseshell on top and clear, pink-tinted plastic on bottom. She wears a floral blouse in tones of blue, purple, orange, mustard, and white, a kelly green cardigan, slim-cut mustard-colored pants, and caramel brown heeled clogs. The background contains a light wood-colored dresser, a pale teal bar cart with glasses and bottles of alcohol, and a pale green wall filled with many pieces of framed art.]

I made this top last summer and promptly shoved it into the back of my closet because I was annoyed with some finicky mistakes. But when I pulled it back out when the weather warmed back up and realized all the mistakes I could see back then were hardly noticeable with the busy print. Just a lesson to take a step back and not be too hard on yourself!
