Print Mixing

I wore this to work, yesterday.  I made this tweed jacket last year and it finally made its debut.  Let me tell you, I'm so thankful for an air conditioned office, because with the temperatures rising, there is no way I could wear this jacket outside.  You can't really tell in the photos, but the jacket has a peter pan collar and over sized covered buttons.  Because I didn't line it, it's on the itchy side, but there is the fun surprise element of the electric orange binding on the inside.  Cute and unexpected, right?

Well, I hope you lovelies have a great Memorial day weekend.  Have fun and be safe!  And of course, Happy Aloha Friday.  Oh and guess what!?!  It's my grandma's birthday today. She's 88 years young!  So cool!

{tweed jacket: Made by Me | dress: Old Navy (buy) | purse: Kenneth Cole NY
sandals: CHARLES by Charles David (on sale, here) | necklace: J. Crew (buy)
watch: Michael Kors | braclets: random & Wendy Mink Jewelry}

Love, S

Amazing work with the jacket! I'd love to know how to make some clothes!

I'm in love with the sandals! You got them in the same website? Because it says black but the color on the picture is weird..
