On to the clothes:
Monday, 5/6 - Put a Bow on It! Cation Designs Dolman Top
One of my favorite makes - had to sew the bow back on the morning of wearing, since last time I wore it, I rocked too hard with the kiddos and it fell off in the middle of class - lol
Tuesday, 5/7 - Cool Leopard Skirt
As this was ZUMBA week at school (meaning I was doing Zumba for at least 3 hours every day at school), I needed something that I could move in, still look somewhat teacher-y, and wouldn't show sweat - lol :)
You can't see in this pic, but I also happen to be wearing the coolest shoes I've ever owned in my life:
Discovered that pictures in this spot in the morning (as opposed to the afternoon in the previous two pics) is TOO MUCH SUN for this camera to frickin' handle!!! Haha - every picture had these sunny spots! Plus, I look waaay too tired (well it is Zumba week after all... and I haven't had any coffee yet... and it's allergy season)
Friday, 5/10 - Stripey Renfrew
No pic today, but I will tell you that I cut that cowl neck right off! It just didn't lay right, and was too hot. I also didn't have time to finish the neckline after cutting the cowl neck off, so I wore a cute bird scarf with it all day - lol
Saturday, 5/11 - Yellow Chevron / Sunshine Tee
Another no pic day, due to my terrible allergies and the fact that I spent most of the day laying on the couch watching house hunters international, drinking tea, and eating pancakes. Allergies - 1, Me - 0.
Sunday, 5/12 - NEW! Gray Ponte Peplum Tank
Made with McCall's 6754 out of a charcoal gray ponte knit - I made the top this morning and wore it to a family Mother's Day get together. Jewelry compliments of Mom and Grandma :) Blog post coming soon!
And you may have noticed that I wore six me-made garments this week instead of my pledged four! Let's see what next week brings!
And now for more music theory nerd time!!!
In music theory, the names of all the scale degrees are: (1) Tonic (2) Supertonic (3) Mediant (4) Subdominant (5) Dominant (6) Submediant (7) Leading Tone / Subtonic
Fun fact #1 - almost ALL western music is based on the relationship between the tonic (I) and dominant (V) - our ears have been trained to hear it since we were born!
Fun fact #2 - just try listening to a scale that ends on the leading tone (vii) and not sing the final note (back to tonic) - I'm telling you people - it's nearly impossible! (I've been sneakily testing this on my hubs while writing this post and he has sung or whistled the last note every time! Lol)
