Life on a daily basis

Top: self-made/ Leggings: self-made/ Tank top: H&M/ Shoes: All-Star Converse
 We all love a fancy dress or skirt paired with nice-heeled or not-shoes. Feeling polished and put together. But unfortunately for me this can't be an everyday dressing code. But that doesn't mean I don't need to feel put together and well dressed. This is what sewing is here for, right? In order to be able to make even our everyday basic garments feel exactly how we want them!

This is the kind of outfit I'm wearing on a "running-errands" or "working in front of the computer for several hours" kind of day. Relaxed and really comfortable! The top is the-quickly becoming my favorite one- Mandy Boat Tee from Tessuti patterns and the leggings are my all time favorite Virginia leggings from Megan Nielsen. As always I cut an M size and used the softest midnight blue stretch velvet I ever touched. For the top I used a white jersey I had in my stash. I sewed both on my serger and they came together in less than 2 hours! 

So what do you prefer wearing on a daily basis?

  1. simple things are the best, right?! i love your daily uniform, and i guess mine is looking pretty much the same (maybe a bit different in color, as white doesn't look good on me, so i stick to gray tones.. but basically, i'm wearing the exact same outfit this very moment :)

  2. Basic, but still so stylish! Leggings and a loose tee is one of my favorite outfits too. And they're so quick to sew!

  3. Great outfit! My daily uniform is a pair of jeans and a buttondown or woven top, with the occasional sweater or sweatshirt on top when it's cold out.
