Okaaaaay, so the thrill of a new year dwindled a bit for me this week and I found myself feeling a little blah (and eating more dark chocolate than absolutely necessary). Seeing how quickly Monday was on its way (and that I needed to curb the chocolate), I decided to take a little preparatory pick-me-up into my own hands.
I started out with this number, a blouse my husband found for me a few seasons ago at a Good Will thrift shop.
I added a vintage teal button from my stash to give it a little more pizazz, but to be honest white just isn’t my “color”. I pretty much lack pigment to begin with and disappearing in wardrobe isn’t exactly my fashion quest.
Along with a pair of white cable tights my little sister-in-law gifted to me, I threw the blouse in a bucket of hot water, Rit Tangerine dye and salt. A few stirs and an hour later I had a much peppier combo.
I’m in-love with the stitching detail that stayed white!
Paired with my favorite teal sweater, my new bright tights and jeans (a skirt might make me resemble Big Bird in a non-endearing way since both dye jobs are exactly the same color), I’m
almost ready to get back into the work week (Courage, people. This is what we do!)
