Outfit of the Day: January 25th. Now with more yarn!


I made a bunch of progress on Miraldette last night while watching a Will Smith flick called Seven Pounds.  Some of the critics didn't like it, and I have to say there were one or two gaping plot holes, but overall it was a beautifully acted and poignant story of a man's search for redemption in one of the most literal ways possible.  Expect tears if you check this one out.  By the end my movie-watching companion and I were both bawling like children.


I haven't been thinking about my outfits quite as much in the last couple of days, because, right on cue, Ohio dumped a bunch of snow on us.  Which means back to the snow boots that don't go with anything except jeans.  Today I'm wearing flats on the plowed walkways and praying that it doesn't start snowing again.  This time, laziness won out rather than necessity and I'm wearing jeans again.


This outfit is composed of some old stuff, but definitely good stuff!  I bought both the lacy grey undershirt and the flannel vest when I was in high school, and have worn them a ton, especially together.

Grey lace undershirt: Brass Plum at Nordstrom, circa uhhh... 2003?
Zip flannel vest made from vintage men's shirt: Brass Plum at Nordstrom, circa 2004
Belt: Petal wrap belt by Elizabeth Kelly on Etsy
Jeans: Levi's, borrowed

Eesh.  I definitely need to trim my bangs!


I'm also starting to brainstorm some new on-the-go projects.  I've made the Waving Lace Socks from Favorite Socks once before, and despite ruining the color (Lorna's Laces Sheperd Sock Solid in colorway Grape; thanks for being superwash, LL!) in a load of laundry that was done too hot, they've held up well and are super cute and comfortable.

Yesterday I was really proud of myself because I managed not only to do 5 hours of translating, but I also got a bunch of knitting and some blocking done!  It's been taking a while for my blocked knits to dry, but once they have I'll get some pictures up.  Stay tuned!
