V.E.G.A.S.

I’ve been meaning to share these photos for ages- it has been over a month since I got back from Vegas!  Well, better late than never! =)

On Nnenna’s Needles #15

Sapphire Silk

You might remember this project from an outfit post from the beginning of the year.  I finished this vest in January, I believe, and it’s a pretty cozy, thick vest.  I really love the deep blue color of the yarn and the lacework on the vest.  If this is the wintry version, then I want to make this vest’s summery sister- lighter weight of yarn, more open/lacy, and looser fitting.  Now I just have to find the right pattern…

Tell me: How do you feel about the crochet/open knit looks that have popped up this season?

Let’s Trade Boots for Sandals

cardigan and tee- forever 21, skirt- thrifted, boots- UrbanOg

Unfortunately, it is quite rainy here, which means that I am still wearing boots some days.  All I want is for it to be sunny so that my feet can breathe in some open sandals and I can only wear a dress and be perfectly fine.  I really want it to be nice for Tuesday, which is Spring Fling!  Spring Fling is our annual outdoor concert and this year the lineup features Third Eye Blind, Designer Drugs, Big Gigantic, and Lupe Fiasco.  Half of those people I have never heard of, but I think Third Eye Blind should be all right and I’m excited for Lupe because I actually know his music.  Cross your fingers for me that it’s sunny!

These boots are one of the few shoes that I own that aren’t black (shocking, I know!).  Casee and I have been talking about how we want to incorporate more color into our wardrobes and I think I definitely embraced color with the first Bloggers Do It Better Challenge!  I think I really need to take a pledge to add more color to my wardrobe, so here goes: I hereby pledge that at least 90% of the clothes/shoes I purchase over the next month will not be black (see how I cut myself a little slack there? ;)

Tell me: Is anybody else addicted to black?  Also, if you celebrate, what did you do for Easter?
