Outfit Idea // Linen Dress and Vintage Ankle Boots

As a fashion enthusiast, working on a budget might be one of life's biggest challenges.  So sometimes I get out my sewing machine.  In 2014 I sewed one garment every month, now that there is a baby in the mix, it's been three garments in two years, and this dress is one.  I fell in love with this Reformation dress.  I tried it on, it fit like a glove!  But the $200 price tag wasn't in the budget and made me leave the store with my head down wondering how long I could go without eating, just like when I was 23.  Guess since I have a family to care for starvation isn't an option, so I got my butt to Mood and bought two yards of natural linen.  I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the result.
