Coffee, Chevron, and Changes

Yesterday one of my sisters and I went out for coffee in "old town" at a super cute café. I was glad for the visit since one almost has to make an appointment to see her since she works two jobs and does babysitting several times a week.

I ordered an Irish Crème latte with a Cranberry Lemon scone.

Later on in the morning another sister grabbed a few pictures of me wearing my completed "Pinterest-inspired" skirt. It only took me a couple of hours to make from start to finish. If one knows how to put in an invisible zipper and do pleats, even a new seamstress could make this!

These pictures confirm that I look as "fluffy" as I felt wearing a skirt with lots of pleated fabric and a  few layers tucked in the waistband. Perhaps it's not the most flattering, but it's fun for something different.

Speaking of different, I seem to be going through reverse culture shock being back home. I'm walking around the house aimlessly and bemoaning how bored I am even though errands are being done, and moments of rest/naps are still apart of my day. The change of pace, or the things that define it are probably a good change for a few months.

Mmmm.. the Irish Crème latte with a Cranberry Lemon scone looks delicious!

The skirt you have sewn is beautiful! I think the design is very flattering. Your outfit with the necklace is very stylish. : )
