This is a favorite summer outfit of mine. It's cool, comfortable and blends in to the background. It almost makes me invisible!
Christopher & Banks top - thrifted
Old Navy skirt - thrifted
Shell necklace - street vendor in Mexico
Clarks sandals - eBay
In other, happier news, I was able to get my soap out of the mold yesterday! It's still very soft, but at least now it's able to dry out. I think perhaps I did not blenderize it long enough after trace. In a couple of weeks, I plan to make another batch (different recipe) so I'll have another shot at doing it right.
As for getting some window treatments in the master bedroom....oh, dear. It's not looking good, folks. The fabric pictured in my mind does not exist in reality. I truly don't want to settle for anything else, but unless I'm willing to pay a small fortune for custom-made fabric (and I'm NOT!), then I'm going to have to be happy with something else. This is what I found on fabric.com, but I'm not positive I like stripes:
If I go with this fabric, it will end up costing about $112 plus tax and shipping. Or I could get these ready-made panels for about $60 plus tax (free shipping):
