This weekend, I decided to go adventuring through the trees and meadows on mom's new property. There are so many beautiful wildflowers, interesting trees and animals to scout out. I wore my Wearing History jeans, which are one of my new favorite things.

The pattern was a perfect fit for me and needed no alterations at all. From cut to finishing, I sewed these in an afternoon while the kids were napping. I love them so much, I want to make several more pairs before cold weather gets here. They'd be great in corduroy, gabardine, linen for spring and of course, every shade of denim!

I swear, this has been the weekend for trying out unworn items. I bough this shirt ages ago, which originally was a 1960s house dress thing. It zipped up the front, with pockets on each hip and was about a foot too sort for my liking so I turned it into a shirt, which I have worn once. I don't know why I shoved this into the back of my closet. It's so cute and comfortable and can be worn with anything. This weekend, I paired it with a scarf that doesn't get much play.

My red boots make their blog debut today. I thrifted these at the new St Louis Savers thrift store last fall.
