Trying my best to channel some Emmanuelle Alt-itude on a Sunday morning. Now all I need are slimmer and longer legs.

Today’s outfit is inspired by this post I made earlier. As you can see, I’ve shamelessly copied her entire outfit minus the bag. I’m a style pirate. I hope she isn’t pissed with me.



It’s September already. I think the year passed in a blur. Part of me is stuck in a time warp thinking I was 16 just yesterday. What has happened to all that time?!!! I wonder if having a kid actually makes time pass faster. I feel so.

I wore this last Saturday but didn’t get around to posting it because I was busy gorging my face with the chocolate cake I made. It was a hit with the family and both cakes were gone in two days.




I don’t understand how anyone can be bored or idle because I hardly have enough time! I have so many sewing and crafting projects to do, recipes to try out, laundry to wash.. Blah blah blah.. I’m tired just trying to list out the things that I want to do. A few things high on my list:
1) corduroy shorts ( 80% done)
2) black culottes
3) Quiet book for son
4) orange boxy top
5) dress for niece
6) bracelets
7) put up completed projects for sale on Etsy.
-_- These, I have to do during me-time from 11pm to 1am. It’s going to take a while… Ya.. I bake during this time too. The day is dedicated to my son and any household chores I can squeeze in.

I got this from Uniqlo. It was on sale for $29.90. Image via Polyvore

I was inspired by this look via Stockholm Street Style



But somehow it didn’t look right. I attribute it to the fact that I’m 5 1′ and the large size denim top looked like it was going to swallow me whole. Why did I get a large? Because the medium pinched my shoulders which are really broad for my height. I’m not complaining, I like my shoulders ( and my ears). So I did some alteration and reduced the bulk from this:

To this:
