About Us

We are two best friends (and roommates!) who have fallen in love with fashion. After being inspired by several fashion blogs, we've decided to think a little longer about what we put on in the morning. :P So join us as we keep calm & style on!

about erin
Hello, I'm Erin! I tend to land myself in awkward situations and I have a tendencey to say things that sound dirty...but really aren't. My family, friends, and boyfriend are a huge part of my life - if not for them I wouldn't exist (literally!). I love large puppies, hot drinks, sashimi, Disneyland, and anything having to do with love. I hope you enjoy my adventures!

about caroline
Hiya, I'm Caroline! I love photography, Harry Potter, anything related to Disney/Disneyland, corgis, and baking. Most of all, I love my family, friends and boyfriend -- all of which will eventually appear in my posts. :) I'm simple, awkward and dorky - so prepare for that, haha. :D

Sewing Project #4: Vertical Striped Skirt
Sunday, April 24, 2011

Happy Easter! (To all of those who celebrate!)

So today is Easter Sunday -- in terms of fashion, this means lots of pastels and happy colors. :) Oddly enough, today was one of the gloomiest Easter Sundays I've ever experienced. It also rained, which means that the little kids at church didn't have an Easter egg hunt because it was too wet outside. :| Also, since I didn't go back to my home church this year, I wasn't able to steal candy from my little sister. Hahah! :3



Well, I was already anticipating what happy colors to wear. Over spring break, Jomarie (you remember my cousin with awesome sewing skills, right?) taught me how to make a simple bunched skirt with just cloth and elastic.



I somehow ended up with this cloth made up of lovely vertical stripes. I couldn't resist.

(*Sidenote* Please ignore the wrinkles... I took a nap after church, haha!)



Anyway, the skirt itself is pretty comfortable (especially since it fits my waist perfectly - the joys of learning how to sew) I couldn't help but pair it with this coral top -- the colors make me happy. :D



Thanks to Daniel for taking my photos today. :)


Top:Thrifted || Cardigan:American Eagle || Skirt:Made by me || Boots: Present || Peter Pan Necklace: Anniversary present

Tadaaa! While I made the skirt, I was considering on writing up a tutorial, so I took some photos during the process. So if people are interested, please let me know and I'd love to share -- it's pretty easy! :)

Hope everyone has a great Easter Sunday (or just a great Sunday, in general)! Eat lots of chocolate bunnies and colorful peeps! :D

I love the pink with the skirt! You look adorable! I would totally be interested in a tutorial, even though I probably wouldn't be able to do it myself. But a girl can dream.

Such a cute outfit and VERY Easter with all the light colors going on. Ah you must teach me how to make skirts so that we can run a skirt sweat shop and have skirts GALORE. =)

Love,
Erin
