outfit of the day...and purple hair!

so you know my 4 simple goals? and one of them was to buy less and make more? i used this super easy tutorial to make an elastic waist skirt. this skirt cost me like 3 or 4 bucks to make, and only took maybe 30 minutes or so (i'm a slow iron-er). i was excited to take it for a spin today at church:

necklace: lia sophia
top: gap
skirt: made by me!
boots: forever young shoes

andddd...yesterday i got purple extensions put in! they are so much fun and i love them. they aren't super noticeable so it's fun when they come peeking out. and they match my nail polish right now haha.

when i was getting them put in everyone in the salon kept coming over to feel my long thick hair. they asked where i worked and when i told them the forest service they were like "what?? you dont look like you work for the forest service... maybe you should have gotten forest green extensions" haha. it was kind of funny. anyways, if you live in utah you should go see allison at capelli. she is awesome! she works at a hair school so she can get more hours [she's a certified stylist in another state but utah requires more hours to work here]. i definitely recommend her though, she is super cute and nice, and obviously really good at hair.

happy weekend!

I LOVE that skirt! It's so cute and the best colors! Great job--I wish I could do that--i'd never stop making skirts :)

you did awesome with that skirt. i love the pattern and i love how it works with that top!

your extensions look awesome too; my friend had purple put into her real hair and totally wrecked it. extensions are definitely the way to go.

That skirt is really cute. I usually think of home made clothes as being too craft project looking but I skimmed your post first and then went back and realized you made it and was surprised and impressed.

Now if only I had a sewing machine...

Jess I love that skirt! I actually have a sewing machine that my mom gave me. I've never been much of a sewer (except that I love to cross stitch) but that skirt might convert me. I think I will look into it. You are such a hot babe!
