What I'm Wearing: Country Cozy

Hey guys. I am sorry I will not be saying a lot this blog post. My man's step-father is in the hospital with a blood clot in both lungs and two in his leg. They have him stabilized and doing better, but it was a scare for all of us. I spent some time in the hospital today, so if I look frazzled, that's why.  Hospitals give me the heebie-jeebies.

Now I am off to sew with my mom. I received a sewing machine for Christmas and did a little of my first machine sewing on Monday. I sew about as well as a two year old colors in the lines. Do any of you sew? Do you have any good tips for sewing straight?

  6. I think you should start doing pictures before work. That way while we're talking all day I can picture what you're wearing {in a non-creepy way, which is the opposite of how that sounded}.

  7. I wish i could sew! my life would be so much easier..but i'm too impatient!

    found the route

  8. Hope everything ends up ok! That dress is too cute!

You look wonderful, love those boots :) I hope the sewing went well, I need a sewing machine, it's a lot of fun to be able to make things yourself, I am sure you will get the hang of it in no time ;) Have a great new Year celebration!! xx

  11. Best wishes for your husband's step-father! I don't sew very well either, actually I suck pretty bad at it, so I can't give you any tips, lol. After a long day you still look great!


  12. Sorry to hear about your step-father-in-law. I feel the same way about hospitals, but you don't look frazzled at all!

    I think this dress is absolutely adorable (I love anything floral, really), and the ruffled cardi is so feminine and pretty!

  13. I asked for a sewing machine this Christmas as well! (just didn't get it..) My sewing skills are not up to par either. There are a lot of wonderul tips and tricks on Pinterest you can check out. I always get lots of inspiration and ideas over yonder!

    Very cute and cozy outfit, loving the printed dress and lovely cardigan

  29. I got a sewing machine too for Christmas, and I still have to sit down to figure out how to wind the bobbins. Although, while I'm sewing I do pretty well, as long as I go slow. You look great, I like the blue & gray. Pretty.

  30. Lovely ruffled cardigan! Love it over that floral dress. Hope you have a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2012! xo style, she wrote

  36. I hope your step father in law is ok Kassi! SO sorry to hear that he is in the hospital. I cannot sew nor can I cook to save my life. My mom can though...I'll ask her how to sew in a straight line.


Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
