How to Wear DIY: Blue skirt from Megan Nielsen pattern, and DIY shoes

After a couple weeks of deceptive sun and high '70's temperatures... we've had some rain recently. So, my attempt to look springy despite a cruel bit of rain over the weekend.

I'm craving COLOR!! So I pulled out the bright skirt I made last spring from Megan Nielsen's Kelly Skirt pattern I got to test out. I'm slowly pulling the summer clothes out of the guest room closet, and this was one of those pieces. Paired with a baseball tee and a glam necklace for fun!!

Oh, and I guess this outfit is a two-fer of DIY pieces... also wearing those wedges I spray-painted and love so much more now. They're super versatile and easy to wear! I need more wedges, I think...
Tee and necklace: F21. Clutch: Target. Watch: Ross.
Skirt: DIY, here!Shoes: DIY painted!

Hoping for some sun soon!


  1. Spray painted shoes... amazing! My friend used glue and made button shoes, looked simply wonderful and bright!

    I am such a fan of Megan Nielson ever since being pregnant, her sympathetic maternity patterns are amazing. I love making them

    Thanks so much for sharing this post. Great skirt!!

  2. Your hair is looking so dark and rich in these photos! I think your new diet is really working. You look fabulous as always, but just a little bit more... I don't know how to explain it, but more vibrant.

  3. Your styling looks effortless.

  4. i LOVE it honey!!! so awesome to see your skirt on you. i really love how the fabric you chose makes it instantly dressy. home run lovie! xoxo
