DIY: Sunny Side Up

The fun things about today's outfit:
1. Scarf - Once again, Christmas gift. Are you sick of my Christmas gift scarfs yet?
2. Shoes - Target
3. Belt - Had this since 2007 and this is the second time I've worn it!
4. DRESS - All caps because it's a DIY. Thrifted for $5
5. Coat - Thrifted for $12.50

DIY Dress: 
1. Turn "dress" inside-out. Sew along dotted line. Cut off the excess fabric. 
That fabric will make it snug and lumpy if you leave it on.
2. Cut along solid line at desired length. Sew bottom hem. 
I do this by folding the fabric under twice. 

I promise my DIY pictures will get better and more detailed as I get used to taking pictures along the way. As of right now I find myself finishing a step and realizing I didn't photo document it to show you... Sorry. I'll get better!

Well the sun was shining today here! I'm loving it. Although when we went outside to 
take some pictures it was still pretty cold. THEN we (Hannah and I) walked into the 
little wooded area and it was like a walk in freezer in there. But that's ok. I still love 
the sun! I couldn't help but basque in it for a little while! It's funny how the sun lifts a persons mood when said person is used to rain dark skies. Here's the thing, I've never 
been one of those people who gets glum when the rain wont stop. In fact I love the Northwest! I like rain and sun..... 

I just started humming, "Joy & Pain....Sunshine & Rain" 
Totally did a youtube search to make sure you all know the song I'm thinking of, 
and found these rad girls.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; 
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


  1. I'll probably tell you that I'm amazed at the job you've done each time you put up one of these posts. Honestly, the transformation is amazing! Awesome job, Naomi!

  2. Genius! I have a few dresses that need to be taken in, but until then (because I'm lazy), belts are kind of doing the trick:-) Let's go thrifting together sometime!!! Or coffee. Either one is my love language:-) hehe. xoxo

    1. Bon that sounds like a blast. I'll shoot you a text in the next couple weeks!

    1. Hey Heather. Thanks for checking out my blog!

  7. Great job! I recently did something similar with an old shirt of my husbands - just took it in a little and I've been shocked at how much I wear it. I'm thinking I need to start scouting thrift stores for dresses!

    1. Do it! Thrift stores are the jack pot! It took a while to learn to see the potential in something that isn't cute at all in the beginning. But now I'm glad I take the time to imagine!
