A Crochet State Of Mind

I cannot get enough of crochet lately. I love it all. Did you know I have even crocheted a blanket? Actually, I have crocheted one complete blanket and three quarters of another one. I keep meaning to finish it. Kind of like this thought.

Okay, crochet. Love it! Bring it on:

All right, here I am talking about crochet and my first outfit has no crochet in it. I make sense like that. The shoes I am wearing are my very favorite shoes in the world. They have this lovely lace on them. It looks like crochet. I bought them during Anthropologie’s additional 20% off sale. They are Deirdre Lace Wedges. I am not a shoe girl, but I can feel the lust with these. I am wearing them in all three outfits.

My mom gave me a gift card for my birthday. I snagged this skirt and used her gift card for it. Then it went on sale and I got a price adjustment. I still had money left over from the gift card. Yay! The skirt is called Waverly A-line. I am wearing a size 2 in it. Yes, a 2. I have no idea how to feel about this.

Excuse my excess of make up in this pic. The kids were gone and my husband and I went on a date night. I do not know why I feel like I need more make up at night. I never like it.

I paired the skirt with a Free People lace top I bought at the beginning of the year from Nordstrom Rack. The necklace is a layering necklace from Anthropologie. I layered a pink tulle skirt from Free People (from this post) via Nordstrom Rack underneath the skirt. The skirt all ready has tulle underneath it. I felt it needed more tulle. No explanation needed. I felt very feminine in this outfit.

I bought this Anthropologie Edme & Esyllte Field Corduroy Skirt over a year ago on eBay. It is my very favorite skirt. Unfortunately, I think it is a little big now. I wear this skirt every other week. There are so many things that go with it. This top was from Nordstrom Rack. It is a brand called Daniel Rainn. I had never heard of it. But I like the top. The detail might be more lace than crochet, but I felt it was close enough for this category.

The necklace is a layering necklace from Anthropologie. It is my favorite.

I bought this crochet dress from eBay almost a year ago. It is originally from Anthropologie. I wondered why it looked different. Then I remembered I usually wear a belt with it. Doh! Oh well. I paired it with my flag necklace from Anthropologie.

Have you jumped on the crochet bandwagon? Can you crochet? I crochet in a straight single pattern. My mother-in-law tried to teach me how to do the double knot once. It blew my poor little mind.

Need more crochet?:

I am wearing my multi-color rainbow crochet vest here.

I am also wearing a crochet dress in this post.

And another favorite dress that I have worn and purchased in May, but have not blogged about yet, is the Mix in the Crochet dress by Free People. I own it in the rose color in medium. And I LOVE it.

  1. I have been wearing these SHOES every day! they are beyond amazing! had to have them when I found on sale at my local anthro and they’re so comfy. Feel even cooler now that you posted about them. LOVE all the outfits you have paired them with. My mother and I adore your blog and both follow it together. Thanks for all of your posts!

    • Thank you so much! I am in love with those shoes, too. And aren’t they amazingly comfortable? So much so, that I put them up high on my dresser when not in use. They are too lovely to go with my other shoes. I am so scared of ruining them. I do not want the lace to get stained. Are you worried about the lace at all?

      Your comments are so sweet. I am sure you are much, much cooler wearing them than me. I am such a klutz!

      Thank you so much for writing me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy those shoes! : )
