Several weeks ago I took my first overnight trip without my baby. From the time she was born she would never take a bottle so that made it difficult for me to be away for very long. However, with her being over a year old and becoming less and less interested with breastfeeding I thought it would be the perfect time for me to take a weekend for myself and ween her completely.
I visited my sister in Utah and a trip to my sister’s house never goes by without doing a little shopping– sometimes a lot of shopping. In any case, during our little shopping excursion I found this jean vest that I just could not pass up. It is so versatile and great layering piece for summer.
This leopard print skirt is one that I drafted and made last summer. I found the fabric on the clearance shelf at Joann’s for only $4 and knew I had to have it. This project was one of the most extensive sewing projects I’ve ever done, but I absolutely love how it turned out. The skirt is fulled lined and includes an invisible zipper and back vent.
I got my inspiration for this outfit from the Allen and Company Blog (also formally know as “The Dime Dairy”). I love the casual yet fierce look of the leopard print skirt paired with the jean vest.
