It’s finally Friday! I’ve been working extra hours this week trying to finish up a project at work and I’m glad to get a couple days of relaxation this weekend before I pick things up again next week (to hopefully finish!). Adrian’s dad will be in town tomorrow, and I’m excited for him to see how much Dylan has changed since he saw him last Thanksgiving. The Dallas Arboretum is having a cherry blossom event this weekend and here’s hoping we can have a little picnic under the trees. Spring has definitely sprung around here and our calendar is filling up! I’m taking advantage of our warm days here and there to enjoy the outdoors again!
Contrast leather sleeves have been a micro-trend the past few months and I’m really enjoying how it adds that subtle edge to every outfit. I loved the cropped cut of this jacket as it draws the eye up and doesn’t overwhelm a petite frame. The sleeves are about a 1/2″ too long when fully extended so my secret in these cases is to take a skinny hair band, wrap it around the elbow crease of the jacket, and then scrunch up the sleeves as needed. The hair band keeps the scrunching in place and the extra fabric will naturally fold over on the hair band making it invisible for anyone else to see. You’re just left with perfect length sleeves and no actual alterations were necessary! Now you know my little tricks of the trade. 🙂
Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
