Kanga skirt Outfit of the Day

Hi everyone! I am sorry for the utter lack of posts on this blog. I have been finding it hard to find time and inspiration for blogging. I thought I would post an outfit I wore yesterday as I thought it was fun and something different that others would enjoy seeing. Jennie Chancey from Sense and Sensibility patterns is living over seas in Africa and has been selling material called a kanga. Be sure to check out her eBay store often to see if she has any new pieces of material in stock. Each piece of fabric is unique and has a saying written on it in a particular African language. Each saying has a blessing or proverb or other message on it. Mine is a blessing, but I forget what it says. I will post that when I find the paper I wrote the translation onto.

My sister Bethany made my skirt for my birthday at the beginning of the month. You can check out her blog post about it here. My scarf was a gift from my mom for Easter and my top is the brand  Liz Claiborne from J C Penney. I love that store! My shoes were from a local shoe store I cannot remember the name of last summer. Sorry for not remembering. They are quite comfy and go with everything.

We are having brilliant spring weather lately here in the USA! I love the weather, but I could pass on the high pollen count. Anyone else dealing with seasonal allergies besides me? Are any of you doing anything special this weekend? My sister and I are going to watch Snow White and the Huntsman tonight to start it out. We have not seen it yet so I cannot say my thoughts on it. I am sure I will have a loads of things I don't like about it to say. Would any of be interested in movie reviews by me? I have thought about doing movie reviews and thought I myself would enjoy reading them. Let me know in the comments!

My family and I will also celebrate another work week done by going to the new burger joint in our town called Elevation Burger. I can't wait! Tomorrow we will be getting the house ready for a single ladies get together after church on Sunday my sister, mom and I have planned. We will have food and fellowship and watch a movie called Shadow lands about C.S. Lewis's life. I can't wait! Its going to be great having all the young women get together.

God bless!

Bohemian meets 1930s Outfit of the day

I am sorry in advance for the poor sound quality of the video with the wind and the lawn mowers at the end. Enjoy anyway though!

I asked the lady who made the hat if she could make it without chains like the one in her shop and she kindly obliged. So do ask if you don't want chains on the side with the bow and she can do that. I love the  big bow a lot!

 Please excuse my headphones, I was walking and wanted music to listen to.

My pashmina scarf is from a store called Compass, which is only in Texas unfortunately. The snowflake necklace from Ashley was fun to wear when the snow came and I love how it sparkles.

 My hat is from Felt Fancy's Esty shop and my necklace was given to me by Ashley from Bramblewoodfashion.

God bless!
