Navy & White Striped Cardigan

Hey hey there! How's it going?! I hope you are all doing well. So, you know that sewing class I'm in? (if you don't know-- I'm in a sewing class. lol). Well, let's just say it's harder than you think! We have samples of different types of stitches due in class along with bigger projects. Our first big project was a pair of pajama pants. When my lab TA was handing out patterns, she gave me and the girl at the machine next to me the child-size pajama pants, since we are short. Well, now that we are done... we discovered that the kids jammies basically don't have room for our hips and booty. So they are a little tight around that area, ha ha ha! My fabric is kind of boring, but I'll have to share pictures once I get them back. It was not an easy process! I have a hard time keeping my stitches straight, oops! 

Anyways, today's outfit is a classic Rachel-in-the-Fall outfit. Jeans, booties, and a cardigan (remember, I'm a part of the "Cardigan Squad"?;). Navy and white stripes are so classy! I love it. I got it from Maykool, they have some awesome clothes so be sure to check them out!! 

OH btw--I was featured on some big, awesome blogs this past week!!! Check out Clothed MuchPlane Pretty, and Stylelixir to take a peek :D






cardi: c/o MayKool || v-neck: Walmart || bag: Asos || jeans: AE || booties: Target 






OH and..

Justin and I have opposite morning schedules, so we don't see each other when we are getting ready. Justin left before I did, but when I got home later in the evening, we found out we had been matching the whole day! Aww. And we had another couple-friend who also matched us, and my sister-in-law wore basically the exact same outfit as me. 

I guess it was Navy-and-White Stripes Day! 



Have a good one! XO
