Crafted: Fall 2015

Welcome to the first edition of Crafted, a quarterly series detailing my recently handmade items. I’ll be sharing patterns, stitches, and materials I used to make them. I hope you guys find this series helpful. It won’t just be crochet. I’ll also be sharing sewing and other projects at the end of the season.

Since getting back into crochet, I’ve crafted a lot of clothing for myself and my loved ones. The awesome thing about crochet is if you use the right materials, you can whip something up very quickly. Read more…

What I Wore: In Boston

Greetings from Philadelphia! I’m spending my weekend here for WordCamp US, but I’d like to dial back to my Boston trip for now.

What I Wore: Transitioning

This post is at least a week late, because fall is now here in full force! It was still a little warm a few weeks ago but with the gradual drop in temperature, I was bundling up more and more. Fall is so beautiful. I’ve never truly appreciated it until I started living on this side of the country. An entire forest slowly changing colors blows my mind.

A Little Chilly

What I Wore: Heat Wave

I’m trying to adhere to my no-pants rule as long as I can. I find myself a lot more comfortable with it than I thought it would be. I still love my jeans, but after years of sticking to what I’m familiar with, it’s fun to challenge myself with something different. I can definitely see this look as my new uniform. <3 Read more…
