A bright colored corduroy skirt. I couldn't find any yellow corduroy today at the fabric store so I might have to start looking online. I love this yellow but maybe a pink or purple could work too? Oh and I love the black tights, blue sweater and brown boots. Perfection. From Boden.
These knee length shorts. Using my new favorite pattern of course.

This shirt with long sleeves. It is also from Anthropologie. I might be able to find this print, we'll see.
I've been needing a brown pencil skirt and I really like the shape, buttons and piping of this one. I would use a wool brown plaid that I have in my stash. Oh and plum lining because that is what I have and it will be fun!
This buffalo check shirt is adorable. I've wanted a few more button up shirts and this would be great. It is from J. Crew as well.
I really like this purse. It is perfectly sized, simple but fun. All the things I'm looking for in a bag.
And last we have a hat. I really like hats and am trying to incorporate them into my daily wear. This is the basic shape I'm looking for. This one is from shoebuy.com.
As I look at the clothes above I don't think they really scream "mom wear". I tend to wear business casual on a regular basis and don't have very many 'jeans and t-shirt' kind of days. If everything is washable I don't see why not to dress a little better than expected. These are the clothes I really love.
Orange suspenders. Aren't these adorable? I love them so much. I attempted to buy suspender hardware today but my fabric store didn't have any so I may see if I can find suspenders at the thrift store and steal the hardware. There will be a tutorial when I do these.
This whole outfit per Calder's request. He wants the orange tie, the shirt with the cool cuffs and the "reindeer sweater". I'm going to do my best at this. From Small Magazine.
This shirt with a freezer paper stenciled pocket. I love it. From kicokids.com.
I want to make a shirt like this as well. I was able to find hunter green buffalo checked fabric today. Hopefully this one will happen sooner than later.
I seem to be loving gingham lately. Hmm.. I guess what I really like is the casual print mixed with a dress shirt sophistication.
For The Home:
I want to make a really cool duvet cover. I have the pattern in my head, but I can't really make a picture from that. It is going to be all white with lots of texture. I'm really excited! Otherwise I don't have many other things in mind but I'm sure projects will pop up as inspiration hits.
So, there you have it. Hopefully I can get all of these done and more. I'm excited to get started on some of these projects. I also love that my confidence is growing and I feel comfortable trying harder things for me. I think I'm still enjoying the sewers high from my strawberry pants.
