May Of The Penguin

Last week I talked about matching my brooches to the season, and here I am, going completely against my own rule. Not only I’m wearing a penguin brooch, which is more appropriate for winter than spring, but the penguin is wearing a scarf too. However, I’m wearing all black and white, and that makes me think of a penguin, so to hell with the rule. I’ve never cared much for fashion rules anyway, let alone something I made up myself. (The post title, of course, is a terrible pun on “March of the Penguins”.)


Bee Square

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Anne M. Bray’s “Scrappy Square” fabric art. After looking through the various squares, I ended up choosing Shelbee’s namesake, “ShelBee”, made from a scarf that she gave Anne and some bee-printed fabric (hence my post title). I went with my yellow skirt and gingham ruffled blouse to mimic the colors and patterns of the piece, and of course, I had to top it off with my bee brooch. (Also, you have may noticed the background change. We’re having some work done on the house and the front yard has been taken over by material. This lawn is not a bad replacement, but the grass tends to get high and there are bugs, which is why I prefer to stick to the yard.)

Don’t forget to drop by Shelbee’s blog on Wednesday to see what everybody wore this week!
