Freckles in April: Trendy

Trendy

ATL top, skirt by me, Charlotte Russe boots, Charming Charlie earrings



I had something completely different in mind for this prompt, but then I saw this fabric at JoAnns. When I first started seeing Navajo stuff around I kind of went, "meh" because, as an AZ dweller, I see it a lot and it felt a little boring to me. But I've seen some really gorgeous pieces and outfits lately and I've come around (LOVE the sweater in this post).

I've dubbed this my "Cowboys and Indians" skirt. The indian part is obvious, but you kind of have to look for the cowboy-



I needed pocket fabric and happened to have an old bandana in my fabric stash. Perfect! Except the skirt didn't turn out quite like I wanted (fit is weird and pattern doesn't match up at the seams) so I'm probably going to take it apart and start over. Ah, the joys of sewing.

Also, I was inspired by that hair twist pic I posted yesterday and decided to give it a try last night for my temple date with Aaron. I loved the way it turned out! That's a trend I'll be embracing whole-heartedly.

Link up your embrace-a-trend outfit below. Or you can always add it to the Flickr group!

  2. New Mexico is the same way with the Navajo prints and turquoise jewelry. Yawn.

    But I love this skirt - And of course the pockets. Curious what A thought as Simon turns up his nose initially at all things trendy. Especially high waisted pants.

  6. This look is great. Super adorable. I've never been a 'tribal pattern' kind of girl but the updated patterns in all the great colors this season are really tugging at my purse strings. The fabric you chose is lovely, the pink waist band is perfect. And I love the contrasting pocket fabric :)

  16. I like the pairing of the bold print with the crisp white shirt. It keeps it from going over the top, you know?

    I loooved your hair yesterday! Do you twist first and then bun it?

  21. Great job on this skirt that you made, even if you don't think it's perfect. Way to be bold and go for the "western"/Navajo look! Looks lovely and fun. :)

  23. I never noticed the red tones in your hair before today - um, can you say GORGEOUS!
    Love the band choice on that skirt too - that color is unexpected, but looks fabulous with it! I would have never thought to pair those two together.

  24. Um, I really want that skirt...or at least the fabric to make one for myself!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love that skirt! And you included pockets when you sewed it?! Awesome!

    I would totally steal that from your closet if I could. :) A skirt with pockets is the best invention ever.
