Talking Through Glass

Hi guys! I have a real quickie of a post for you today, but I feel like I have been MIA all week so I'm posting a little something for you before the weekend when you won't hear a peep out of me! (:

I only have one decent shot of my outfit- so here it is! I was pretty darn excited when I found this skirt at H&M for only $5.95. I mean seriously how much better can you do for a new skirt?! Frustrated with all my clothes today I finally pulled this top out of the deepest depths of my drawer and felt like a completely new person (look no floral... well except the tights!) I put them together and voila! I feel like they were a cute little fashion match made in heaven!

Shirt- Marshalls ; Cardian- Target ; Skirt- H&M ; Tights- Bakers ; Belt- Mom's ; Shoes- UO

My mom and I also went down to JoAnns fabric store today and I got some really awesome fabric to start my quilt with! I have never made one before so my mom made sure to spoil me with a cutting mat, rotary cutter, and some other goodies. Along with this she treated me to an awesome quilt book, another book (Lolita) that has been on my to read list way too long, and two perfect Essie nail polishes (Chubby Cheeks and Lapis of Luxury). Mom's can be so overly generously sweet.

I'm off to start my quilt now, which will consume my full attention this weekend. See you all Monday! Xo!

  1. I am in love with that top and that whole outfit combination in general- too cute!

    I've been to a JoAnn's myself today picking up some ribbon to try my hand at making a necklace. High five for DIY's!

  2. i have always wanted to learn how to make a quilt but no one i know, knows how to do it. (make it & then tell me how to do it!!!)
    love the outfit. awesome deal on the skirt...always a good feeling to find a deal!!! & lastley..i love's in my top 10 faves! xoxo

  3. Oh my goodness Caitlyn, those fabrics are amazing! You better show us the finished product :] My mom is actually working on a quilt too and the fabrics she is using if from my great grandparents old blankets/curtains/sheets/shirts etc. It's pretty neat.

    I wish there was an H&M here, blah.

  4. I am so jealous of your pretty Essie polishes, Caitlyn. I love so many of their shades but unfortunately they don't sell it here. Actually they might but I bet it costs too much.

    Anyway this is a refreshing new look for you. Not as pretty and girly as your usual but still very put together :) Have a good weekend!

  5. That outfit is so cute and original! I love the shirt and all the different textures and patterns.

    I can't wait to see how your quilt turns out, ahh Mums are the best! I love shopping with my Mum. And Lolita is such an incredible book - I've been wanting to buy it for so long!

    I've been MIA on my blog too - I just havn't been getting good outfit photos/been doing anything interesting enough to blog about, I'm going to post tomorow though :)


  6. that top looks gorgeous! and also good luck with the quilt- the fabrics are so pretty!

  7. Can't wait to see your quilting progress. I've always wanted to have a go but I'm just to lazy. You chose some very pretty fabrics.

  8. such a pretty top! it has an interesting print, love it :)

  9. This top is so gorgeous! Cool that you found it in your drawer, it goes perfectly with the skirt and tights!
    And I have this red Essie nailpolish, it's one of my favourites :)
    Have fun with working on your quilt! It's so cool that almost everyone (but me) in the huge fashion blogger community can sew.
