Outfit: The Help

5/14/18



I'm trying to make more time to read this summer. Over summer vacation, we take the kids to the library every week for their summer reading program and free kids activities. I often bring home a few cook books and crafting books but rarely a novel. With my other hands-on hobbies like sewing, knitting, baking and gardening, there's not a lot of quiet sit down time to crack open a book.


The Help book

I started reading The Help last fall and although I loved it, I set it down one day and got busy with something else. I decided to finish it this week and read on the porch while the weather is not too hot. While reading, I remembered another thing I put down one day and never put on again, my DIY sweater inspired by Skeeter's blue dress in the movie. I did a blog post tutorial on how to make this harlequin sweater a while back so you can make one too!

  1. I wish I had more time to read, too. I love books, and The Help is one of my favourites. I remember your lovely remake sweater. Your hair is very glamorous! Have a nice day, dear. :)

  2. I really enjoyed the film, and I love that you made her sweater! I never got around to reading the book though!

  3. This outfit looks both comfy and put-together. I love outfits that are cozy enough to read on the porch in but look this nice. And the inspired sweater is so clever. Enjoy your books!
