Sewing: Bootcut to Skinny Jeans

I love high quality denim but the only way I'm able to buy higher quality jeans is second hand/thrift stores. I purchased these Joe's Jeans via thredUP. They were way too short to be worn as bootcut jeans so I skinnified them. Yes!!! I didn't get a before but the leg on the right is the before leg.

I'm not by any means a professional seamstress but I get by. I'm actually surprised about how easily it comes to me. My grandma is amazing! She used to make my Halloween costumes and dresses completely from scratch. It came so naturally for her and I'm happy that I share a tiny portion of her talent.

Food: Pizza

Pizza
I used a premade crust from Costco, pizza sauce and cheddar cheese. I'd say we eat pizza once a week and it's nice to have the crust so I can get creative with toppings.

Chilly out!

The weather has been CRAZY!!! It's 85 one day then 61 the next. I really have to check the weather every few days to make sure I dress weather-appropriate. There's nothing worse than being too cold or too hot.

Mustard Yellow

This year I wanted to be a little more focused on filling in my wardrobe with pieces I actually needed. My Shopping Desires post detailed a few things I was looking for. This mustard cardigan from H&M was right up my alley.
It was $15- I would have liked to pay $10 but that's ok.
