The Reveal of Mid Summer

Is it still mid summer? Let’s see–summer officially started on June 21 and will end on September 23, so technically, August 4 still qualifies as mid summer.  I took a couple of “mental health” days last week and visited the Emily Dickinson museum in Amherst, MA.  For those who know me, I am an extreme fan of hers and dedicated a post to her here.
I will be sharing some pictures of that visit in a future post. In the meantime, I wanted to talk about a simple but effective method on how to lengthen a skirt. My supervisor at work shared this idea with me and I immediately loved it. The skirt I am wearing was slightly short for my taste and I was able to add 1 1/4 inches to the length by hand sewing this lace to the hem. It took me literally 10 minutes to sew it by hand. I have added lace to another skirt that I will be presenting in another post.20190804_163653 (1)20190804_163331-e1564954172570.jpgI love this skirt now that it’s a little longer as I was previously thinking of donating it.20190804030738_IMG_1854The following pictures were taken in the original historic village adjacent to my hometown.20190725005716_IMG_1827.JPG20190725011848_IMG_1845.JPG20190725005452_IMG_1821.JPG20190725010017_IMG_183620190725005255_IMG_1816_120190725005735_IMG_1829_1resized95snapchat-768887211.jpegMabel is going to Dunkins for her munchkin.20190804030625_img_1852-e1564962758383.jpgThis was a mini post (but no mini skirts) and I hope you are all enjoying your summer.
