Summer In The City

What I Wore [Dress: Self sewn, fabric and pattern from Hancock Fabrics, Belt: Francesca’s Collections, Shoes: White Mountain, Bow Pin: Antique Shop, Sunglasses: Nordstrom BP, Lipgloss: Butter London Lippy in “Snog”]

My summer goal this year (I am a big fan of goal setting because I like to feel like I accomplish things) was to sew my very own, wearable, dress. And I did it! All be it not without a good amount of help from my very sewing-knowledgable mother, but I cut and pinned and sewed and ripped seams and pressed and now I have a very pretty dress! I wore this outfit for a wonderful day of shopping while I was in Chicago with my mom for a long weekend, and I must say I got quite a few compliments, which truly made my day!

Hopefully I can continue sewing clothes in the future, perhaps I’ll try and make myself a skirt next, we shall see!

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday :)

OOTD: Chambray Everyday





What I wore [Top: Gap, Skirt: J Crew, Bag: Target, Shoes: Target, Necklace: vintage, Nails: Essie’s “Coat Azure”]

Long time no post! My family has recently gotten a new puppy so I have been a bit preoccupied for the past few weeks (and have not been wearing anything cute or notable). Recently though I did get the chance to get a bit more dressed up than usual and go out to eat and be with the real world again. One of my go to outfits, aside from a dress and tights, is to pair my beloved chambray shirt with some kind of colored or patterned bottoms. Since it is July and it is warm out I chose this obnoxious orange skirt, which in my opinion is a good representation of the “right” kind of neon (leave it to J Crew to do everything perfectly). Anyway, all I did to complete the outfit was to put on some metallic sandals and an interesting necklace and I was quickly out the door!

I’m heading to Chicago next this weekend for a short little vacation, so look out for some up coming outfit posts from there, you can also see more of my everyday life updates via my Instagram (@evagoellner). Thank you all for reading, and have a beautiful Monday!
