I tried to pack super light for vacation. I put together very simple outfits that I could wear andthen mix and match. Besides, when it is like 100 degrees who wants to get dressed at all? I made this blue skirt so long ago but it still remains one of my favorite items in my closet. I really want to try to make some more skirts this summer for myself. They are so easy (I just need to find the time!).

The count down till my race has begun. We leave Saturday afternoon to head down to CT for the night. My half marathon is on Sunday morning. I will be glad when this one is over. The training has been a little harder than all the other ones- although the company has been amazing!


Outfit Details:
Skirt: Handmade
Tank: Walmart (long ago)
Worishofer Sandals: c/o Modcloth (so dang comfy)

  1. It looks so lightweight! I Love those polka dots.

  2. This skirt is so pretty! I love both the fabric and the pattern. Did you use a particular pattern (that could possibly be bought still) or did you make it up yourself? I really want to sew some things for myself this summer (and this looks like a perfect project), but I’m a beginner with the sewing machine, and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to make my own pattern.

    Good luck with your marathon! Your dedication to the training really is inspiring!

  3. great outfit!!

  4. Aw, cutie pie!! You look adorable Jen and your skirt is one of my faves, too!! I love seeing you style it… and I adore the simplicity of this outfit, yet it’s perfectly stylish! And best of luck on your half marathon, that’s so exciting & inspiring. I’m off for a run this morning, eek! xo V

  5. I am terrible at packing. I have such a hard time narrowing it down to the essentials that I really need. I always want to bring way too much stuff. A typical girl dilemma, I think.

    Best of luck on your marathon…

  6. I love the polka dots and the skirt! If you make another skirt a tutorial would be awesome! I’d love to make one. 🙂 You and your family are so cute!
