Friends, I’m writing this post from the comfort of my kitchen table, where I’m munching on a sugar cookie and letting Moxie sweep up the crumbs I’m leaving all over the floor. My tummy’s full of chicken parm, bruschetta, and wine. It’s been a long day of celebration–today was my baby cousin’s christening, and I’ve been named as her godmother.
I wouldn’t consider myself a “kids person” by any means, but I love my cousin’s two babies so much that it made my grinch heart grow three sizes. Getting to be that little girl’s godmother is a huge honor for me, and I was so happy to fulfill my godmotherly duties this morning and afternoon. I’m so excited to watch her grow up and be there with her as she does!
Anyway, a word about this outfit (which, no, I did not wear to the christening): I was running low on laundry and ended up throwing these two patterns together, and somehow I think I hit the jackpot. I’ve been really into pattern mixing lately, and now I feel like I’m hitting my stride. I love this ensemble; I look like someone’s Italian auntie from the 1960s.
Also, a word about the next outfit post I’ll be doing: instead of featuring my ugly mug, I finally got around to snapping pictures of my dashing friend, Richard. I’m currently editing those photos and am really excited about how they’ve turned out so far.
