Its so sad, but today our Summer Style Blog Tour comes to a close.  But dry those eyes, we have 3 more inspirational posts to share with you today!

First up we have Patricia of Sew Far North.  She has a phenomenal mix and match set of clothes that she has created using the Journey, the Aviators, and the Twin Peaks Cardigan.  EEEEk - I jsut love versatile clothes, Patricia is calling this Beach Style, and I could definetly see these outfits geting comfy beach side.  You will have to head on over to her blog to see all the photos and read about how she came up with her Journey hack!

Next we have the ever talented Alyssa sharing the cutest country summer look ever....I'm not sure if 'country summer' is a style or not, but it is now!  Alyssa has the most adorable hack of the Y Back Tank and has paired them with some Real Deal Jeans.  What a great outfit.  Check out her blog for all the details.


And last but not least, I decided that my 'Unexpected Adventure' capsule would not be complete without the classic little black dress.  I wanted to keep it comfortable and easy to dress up or down depending on how I styled it, and I knew that the Magnolia would fit the bill.  I used the Sleeveless Magnolia Hack that I wrote about HERE - it is so easy, and I was able to cut, sew, and model this in one afternoon - nothing like the pressure of the clocking ticking away to make you all sorts of productive.

You may notice that this version of the Magnolia as a seam on the front.  Welllllllllll - in that time crunch, some of us are known to make mistakes....and mistakes in cutting mean some creative thinking on the fly to still get eh dress you desperately want.  Once I realized that my cutting mistake meant I was short on fabric for the front, I cut the front as 2 pieces with a slight V shape at the waist.  I hoped the V waist would mimic the V neckline and actually think the end result is flattering.  Plus tone on tone, it isn't super noticeable....but don't be surprised if I play more on this theme in the future.

I hope you have enjoyed our tour of summer styles - from super casual to date nights to traveling the world, there is something for everyone.  A huge shout out to all of the amazing bloggers who make these tours possible with their creativity and talents!!!!


Don't miss out on any of the stops along the tour!!!
