I debated the shorts. I really don't wear shorts outside of housecleaning/yardwork, and I do have one pair from last year that serves the need if I'm just in a situation that requires shorts in a public setting. So I decided once more to forego the shorts and just use summer pants.
And I just so happened to have purchased a pair of white jeans from Lands' End back in, oh, April or so, and they just so happened to be the very pants featured in the Vivienne files post on White Jeans, and I was really glad to have already bought them because by the time that post came out LE was sold out of the white jeans in my size. Unfortunately, I didn't snag an image from the LE site before they took them down for the fall colors. My bad...I will be more pro-active in the future.
No more layout on the bed pics, since my facepalm moment last month when I realized I could use the same pics I'm taking for the year-to-date collage for a monthly collection. It only took me six months to have that epiphany (snort).
Here's the July set:
I used two different patterns for my T Shirts; the blue cotton/poly/lycra one is the slight modification of Jalie 2566 and the red rayon/lycra one is, I think, a modification of Vogue 9057. Maybe. I traced a full pattern some time ago, so I could do a single-layer cutout on stripes, but I forgot to write the pattern number on the full size pattern and it doesn't exactly line up with the 9057 pattern. So it's a Mystery Pattern, lol. With an added dart.
Shoes are SAS Pampas...crazy expensive sandals by my standards but by far the most comfy ones I own. This is actually my second pair; I have one in red, too. Finally, the sweet little hummingbird necklace is from Novica; I was tickled to finally find something that referenced the scarf.
So, squeezing everything in the slide, here's the wardrobe to date:
This is progressing nicely. And you know what? I'm already thinking about a scarf for next year, lol...
