Date Lunch!

Two weeks ago, I took half a day off of work on a Wednesday to go to Madrid NM with the hubby for a lunch date.  It was such a great day!

I wore my green crazy high-heals that I got from my bestie for my birthday, a white blouse that I made, and a pair of amazing high waisted pants from Modcloth!  I LOVE these pants!!!  I wish I could buy several back-up pairs (my usual thing when I find a pair of jeans that fits well),  but they were $80 bucks, so that is probably not happening.  Maybe not.  Okay, I might do it. 

I really love how this outfit turned out.  The blouse was a completely modified pattern from Gertie's New Book For Better Sewing.  The fabric is so pretty and light.  I bought it to be a lining, but he girl who cut it for me at the fabric store said, "don't you dare!  This fabric is too pretty to be on the inside of anything!" so I decided she was right and made this instead.

I have been making a lot of blouses from my adapted pattern (I made it so you can pull it over your head-no buttons required!) and I plan on making a lot more.  I have never had much luck making tops that I actually want to wear, so I am pretty proud of this one.  I want to get better at making tops so that I can wear jeans a bit more often next fall.  I still love dresses, but there is something just a bit sexier about jeans with heals, in my opinion. 

Jacket: Anthropologie, top by me, pants: Modcloth, shoes were a gift. 


  1. That's a great top - the cut on sleeve is perfect and it looks easy to wear without being dumpy. Lovely!

    1. Thanks so much Kelly! Its a lot more simple than the tops you make, but I think it came out pretty okay. :)

  2. That is the cutest outfit ever and your hair looks the cutest ever and you are the cutest ever.
