Hit the Mute, Dear


~ this room has all the colors I can take ~

Today I've dressed myself in all sorts of pastel-y colors, muted patterns and soft textures.


~ And turned my back on bright and vibrant hues ~

ahh, the peace and quiet of lilac knitted over-the-knee socks paired with old Doc Marten Mary Jane shoes.


~ uhhuh ~


Can we get a close up of that?


~ yeah, that's what I'm talking about ~


Ladies, what I'm wearing today is:
  • the Becca jacket pattern made as a vest by Tina Givens (now out of print)
  • a linen wrap-around dress modified from Simple Modern Sewing
  • the aforementioned sox from Sox Dreams
  • the Doc Martens from ebay
  • $ store reading glasses
oh, and check out the handmade fasteners on my vest

and photo-ing by Sara too!


Just in time for Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style.  Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie's Shoe and Tell.  Do stop by and see the gang.

  2. Just a beautiful -Spring is on its way - kinda outfit. Oh I just love those fasteners. It's those little details that are often missing on a lot of clothing these days. Sigh....

  5. The fasteners are the perfect accessory to the jacket. They look like little flowers. So pretty.

  6. Oh, it does start with the shoe, does it not? It's a very early spring palette: a little apple green, a little periwinkle (hey, the vinca are blooming this week!). Love the first photo ("it's too much, the soft blues and the acid opposites!")!
