A Recap of Week Two of the Uniform Project

Diana Durkes

As I mentioned on our Facebook feed, if Week 2 was a competition, Michaele would be the winner with the colorful ensembles she put together.

That hat! It's a vintage number made of felted wool. You can't see it in this pic, but it features a long hat pin with a felted blue ball on the end.

So as the week went on, as someone who dresses pretty conservatively, I added some color and shape to my uniform dress.

Our accessories for Valentine's Day: a L.A.Cano gold necklace for me, and awww, a kid-made heart necklace for Michaele.

Coming up this week we're in the deep freeze again, an opportunity to add more layers!
