Cotton candy and bubblegum


I felt so delightfully candy-like in this outfit - bubblegum on top, cotton candy on the bottom! This was the perfect lightweight outfit for a 90-degree day. (Which I mostly spent inside, except when we took these photos. But hey, it was hot on the roof!) I made this skirt last week out of an old nightgown that my aunt didn't want anymore. It was my first time putting an elastic waistband in a piece of clothing, and since I just winged it and didn't have any directions to follow, the waist didn't turn out too pretty. Thus, the gigantic belt. I threw my kitschy purse into the mix because I figured this would be one of the last times I could use it this year before it became seasonally inappropriate.






Top: Old Navy
Skirt: made from an old nightgown (free from aunt)
Shoes: BCBG from Macy's
Bag: thrifted from Rerun
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Necklace: thrifted from a flea market
Belt: free from aunt

  7. This is the outfit that brought me to your blog (via weardrobe.com) - you look absolutely gorgeous. I love that something as mundane as a nightie can be made to look so chic!

    Right, I'm off to raid my mum's wardrobe for nightwear.
