Baby Shower Outfit!

Hey guys!

Welcome back.  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  We're still suffering through hot, humid summer weather here. 

I had a baby shower to go to on Saturday for a coworker.  I wanted to do something a little girly, but still a little edgy.  Here's what I wore:

Purple pleated blouse with flutter sleeves from Express (my annual birthday gift two years ago!) paired with dark boot cut jeans from the Gap and my Guess cork wedges that I bought on clearance back in the fall.  I didn't wear a lot of jewelry since the shirt is already such a statement, just big silver hoop earrings.
The shower was fun.  I saw a few friends from work and there were some cute games and Mexican food.  The cake was adorable with a frosting baby sleeping on the top.  I gave her hand made booties, knitted with pink yarn and tied with yellow ribbon.  My family is fairly crafty and are big on homemade gifts, so I always try to make something myself when I need to give a gift. 
After years of struggling to learn from family members with no success (I'm left-handed which didn't help!) I finally taught myself how as a summer project a few years ago using a book called Knitting Pretty.  I have one big project each summer to make sure that I'm doing something productive and can have a sense of accomplishment at the end.  This year my project is my blog!

What did you do this weekend?

Stay cool!
