Salad Days

Hello again...

What have I been up to lately?  Working endlessly...(blergh) and cooking up a storm!  The husb and I are trying to be good and have cut out all processed foods (at least for a while!).  I was hesitant at first, but I'm really enjoying it. 

If there's one thing I enjoy as much as I love getting dressed in the morning, it's food.  ("Food, glorious food...!")  I'm sure there will be skeptics out there, but anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I chow down like I'm a contestant in an eating competition--hence my childhood nickname "The Stomach". Luckily, this "clean food" thing is providing me with enough food that I don't wake up in the middle of the night gnawing on my own leg. 

(If you want to try it, or at least test some of the amazing recipes, click here!)

I started these pants almost a month ago, but my Sweden trip and jam-packed workweeks prevented me from finishing them until just recently.  I'm loving the super-high waist, and I hemmed them to wear with my tallest platforms.

I used this pattern, found on Etsy.  Probably the easiest Vogue pattern I've ever used.

 And a soft, flowy brown linen.

Now all I need to do is make some blousy silk tanks to wear with them.  It's just too hot for sleeves right now!


  1. those are so adorable, and if you didn't already look tiny enough, these make you look the teeniest tiniest person ever!! super cute

  2. Oh wow, that is awesome! What great skills you have, miss ;-)

  3. Wow! You did a fantastic job with these pants! Now I wish I would have paid more attention when my mother was trying to teach me how to sew! Love the blouse you paired them with as well!

  4. whoa!!! there it is! you tweeted about it and i couldn't wait to see how it turned out...IT IS GORGEOUS! especially with your thin just looking amazing...<3

    ps. this makes me sadder that i didn't learn patter-making..hehe.

  6. cool!!!
