So these pictures turned out a tad blurry. I’m missing my photographer boyfriend and not used to taking my own pictures again! However, I loved this outfit way to much to not post it. I love the colors, this dress, and my giant infinity scarf that I finished knitting over the weekend. This was actually one of the first projects I started when I taught myself how to knit but I just know finished it and I’m pretty excited. I picked up knitting again over winter break and now I want to make a million cozy scarves!
Although my New Year’s resolutions (training for a half marathon and blogging more consistently) have been pretty much decided since the beginning of the school year, one new goal that I have for this year is to create something each week. Whether it’s a knitting project like this, a sewing project, or a DIY project, I want to set aside a little time every week to make something with my hands. Creative outlets have always been a huge part of my life, from scrapbooking alongside my mom to making handmade cards with my grandma to sewing prom dresses for myself and my friends, and when I’m not doing something creative, I really miss it. It could be a more ambitious project, like sewing a dress, or just something simple and quick, like filling a page of my Smashbook, but regardless, I’m looking forward to being more creative on a weekly basis this year!
