Green and Purple Wear to Work

Summer is still alive and kicking so I am not yet abandoning this tried and true formula: floral prints + brights = fashionable yet easy wear to work outfit. With this outfit in particular, I was proud of myself for trying the mix of purple and green — a color combination I don’t try that often but really like. The green flower print pattern definitely elevates this look past your typical color blocking. It’s like color blocking on caffeine. This look was relatively inexpensive to create when you consider I purchased the top at Goodwill for about $4 and the skirt at a consignment shop for $20.

Built by Wendy

Built by Wendy is a line that provides clean and simple shapes with its clothing that always end up looking cute and girly. And materials and colors that give it a classic feel. But the prices are a bit high for a girl like me. So I have discovered the most marvelous thing in the world, Built by Wendy patterns. Now that I am officially wanting my very own sewing machine and have even bought some fabrics and have started some mini projects, I am very excited to try out my DIY skills on one of these darling patterns.
