Muse Monday - What I Wore

A few weeks ago we celebrated three of my friend’s birthdays at one party. To make things easier, I decided to color coordinate their cards.  My inspiration for the cards came from Jessica of What I Wore. Know her? If not, check out her blog here. I love her style and the way she re-works her clothes from her closet. She also sews a lot of them (so jealous of this trait!). Last summer I made my first two skirts because I was so inspired by what I saw her making on her blog. She’s also started a new blog - That’s Quirky, and it’s right up my alley because it’s a home improvement, cooking and lifestyle blog.  I love it! If you’re looking for great ideas and inspiration, check her out.
