I’m taking advantage of a warmer spell to wear cardigan_blackshorts and a tank-top.  There’s little of this weather left!  I was hesitant to blend purple and blue, but I added a neutral brown belt and went for it.

Cardigan_yellow cardigan_beigeThe weather got cool fast!  I pulled some black leggings out when I realized that one long pair of pants won’t cut it for the rest of the month.  The afternoons are still warm, so it’s all about layers, layers, layers.

Frame Collage 2

Well, we’re back!  After over a month.  I didn’t expect it to take that long but I’m learning that I like to sit and live in a space for a while before committing what to put on walls.  To pick up where we left off, I taped newspaper cutouts of my frames to my wall, using ancient masking tape that barely worked and was pretty annoying.  Here’s the look:

It’s the wall I face while lying in bed, and I liked the idea of waking up to my frame collage.  But a roommate and friend pointed out that this wall already has a door frame and a shelf against.  Another boasts a closet, and a third the window.  Whereas one wall had nothing:

[whoops, no picture.  I'm still not good at remembering to photograph things.]

So I switched gears, and taped my cutouts on the lonely wall.  Then I started to commit!  And for a while, it looked like this:

IMG_3009At first, I had the purple frame with long limbs and blue plate reversed.  But my mom pointed out that such an arrangement made the right side circle-heavy, rather than balancing the shapes.  Good call, Mom!

And here’s what the wall-with-the-door looks like now, sans frame collage:

Blue tank top: 5
Black linen skirt: 5
Yellow cardigan: 4
Polka-dot tank top: 2
Boot-cut jeans: 2
Beige cardigan:4

I love royal blue against black.  The polka dots in the yellow Cardigan_yellowIMG_2893
top are turquoise, and the offset the dark denim nicely.  The temperature has cooled, and I’m glad I have pants and layers in my 33.
