One Outfit and Two Exciting Things

Sweatshirt: here // Shorts: here // Hat: similar // Shoes: similar // Necklace: DIY // Clutch: Is + Was

This has been one of my favorite go-to outfits this summer (dots, mint, neon orange- what more could you ask for?), so I thought I'd better give it its due before summer is a distant memory. More importantly, though, it features two very exciting things:

See that necklace? Does it remind you of something? Yep, I decided to make my own version of J.Crew's Hyacinth necklace, and I'll be sharing the tutorial later this week- I think you're gonna like it...

Exciting thing two: that racer-stripe clutch is one of the many colorful beauties piling up in my sewing room, just waiting to go live in the Is + Was shop. And see the tag on the side? I can't begin to tell you how happy that little piece of woven damask makes me; suffice it to say, the shop is really close to opening, and I can't wait to share it with you!

This is the kind of tomfoolery that takes place when I think Michael is only taking pictures of my lower half. Tricksy devil.

I'll meet you back here soon for the necklace tutorial and more shop updates. xo, Jess
