Style Peek: floral skirt + slouchy sweatshirt + knit beret

Happy Friday everyone! For all of you who sent me good luck wishes for my big Digital Day talk yesterday - the day was a big success and I met tons of great people. I'm definitely glad it's done and looking forward to a quiet weekend. Jack is going for one last fishing weekend and I'm going to hang out with Gus, catch up on my sleep and work on a new sewing project! 

I had been meaning to share last week's project with you. It's a super simple skirt with an elastic waistband and I followed this awesome tutorial. I tried a few new things, like lining and pockets and made some crazy mistakes on both! Ahem, more learning I guess! But, it's still wearable so I thought I would show it off - I wore it to my aunt's b-day dinner last weekend with a slouchy sweatshirt, tights and my new knit beret I picked up a few weeks back at Forever 21 for only $6.99! I love the deep rust colour and mixing fancy-ish skirts with casual sweaters and sweatshirts is a recent fave look of mine.

What are you up to this weekend friends?


  1. What a cute look! Way to go on the skirt - and holy cow, I love that beret.

  2. You are so cute, I love your skirt!

  3. Now that you know how to sew, your wardrobe is going to double, triple, maybe even quadruple! So talented. Love the print on this skirt!

  4. Glad it went well! Do we get to see your outfit from it?
