Friends, it's been an uber exhausting week.
MMM Day 7:
AVENGERS UNITE! But first, I had to go to work...
Sweater: refashioned sweater from one of Rob's old ones. His sweater had 8 holes in it, so I tore it apart and completely reconstructed it.
Top: McCall's 5138
Skirt: Dress to Skirt refashion
I was looking a little rough around the edges because I had just rushed home to get ready for...
Sweater: refashioned sweater
Dress: Colette Cinnamon Dress
I was needing a bit of bright color so I threw this dress on - it definitely did the trick, and I was feeling fresh and clean before we headed to the theater.
MMM Day 8:
Something told me I needed to walk to work this morning...
I found our statue of Marilyn across from the Wrigley Building in pieces. Ah, Marilyn...you'll be missed by all the people who didn't have a chance to look up your dress and take awkward pictures.
This is how I deal with a stressful day at work:
Shirt: Grey sweater Renfrew
Skirt: Butterick 5285
MMM Day 9
To cheer me up from another stressful day at work, Rob made me a cocktail with Han Solo coffee ice cubes:
This cocktail helped me to relax a bit, as did the most comfortable dress in the world:
Dress: Simplicity 2369
Since this dress is made from bedsheets, it's quite possibly the best thing to wear to work- except it makes me sleepy. I definitely took another nap after this picture was taken.
MMM Day 10
The White Meg Overbite Dance Move Sweeps the Nation:
Dress: New Look 6000
It's a big arm kind of day, y'all!
MMM Day 11:
Ah, casual Fridays, I love you so much
Sweater: refashioned pullover sweater
Shirt: 500 Days of Summer shirt
Skirt: Denim Colette Meringue
This was one of the most exhausting weeks of work that I can remember. All I wanted to do was get home and sleep and last night, I slept ten glorious hours. It was epic.
MMM Day 12:
Going out tonight!
Sleep hungover face.
Shirt: Vogue 5542
I am headed out with my friends tonight to see a college friend in a musical. Despite what the look on my face says, I am very excited! I love seeing my friends performing their hearts out - it makes me so proud.
I haven't done much sewing this week. It seems that whenever I sit down at my machine, I get overwhelmed and feel completely burnt out. I am hoping to be back to normal tomorrow because I would love to finish the Mother challenge for Sew Weekly, as well as my most awesome Minoru jacket that I've been plugging away at over the past few days.
Have a great weekend, my friends, and if you are feeling burnt out, have a margarita on me :)
