Fabric store lovin'

Remember yesterday and how I was supposed to start organizing?  Well, I tackled a few very important things, but the thing I really wanted to organize was my closet.  Did that happen?  No.  I just stared at it and it just stared back. 

However, I did get another order for an envelope box, so I went out to get some supplies.  Visited my favorite fabric store, well it's not really my "favorite", but the selection there is the biggest on our teeny island.  I could spend hours in there, and if it weren't for the lack of air condition, I probably would have.  This visit lasted 15 minutes -- the heat was unbearable.

I loved these florals... I just wished they weren't Polyester. :(  I left the store with some awesome cotton and seersucker prints.


I love this AA tunic (courtesy of my first purchase from Hautelook).  Got it in all the colors.  Definitely something I'll be wearing all summer long.

These are the most rings I've ever sported on one hand!  They were hibernating in Eli's jewelry stash.  They are now MINE! :)  I especially love the one with the 3 interlocking bands.  I tried sporting the doe-eyed look, but I couldn't do it without smiling... so I looked like a maniac!  My bestie mastered the look... take a look at her's, here.

I have a fun DIY I want to share.  Hopefully I'll be done with it by next week!  Anyone have any awesome DIY's to share?

Love, S

What a great go-to dress for the summer! I just bought my first purchase from Hautelook last week as well. Love that site! Cute, cute sandals.

Love the cross necklace! I'm kind of obsessed with them... I've got several in my collection!!! The shoes are great too. I love all of your outfits!

I feel you with fabric stores too... I don't go all that often, but I could walk around for hours looking at and feeling all of them! Unfortunately I'm not the best at sewing, as proven by my attempt at making a Halloween costume last year, but I sure like to wish I was!

Your tunic is adorable on you! And I love all your silver rings. I wish I had more DIY projects right now. I'm brainstorming though. Hopefully I'll come up with something soon.

I love seeing your day, and at a little fabric shop, so cute. :) I like your jacket too, I saw one similar at Old Navy--the cut is really flattering, utilitarian almost. :)
