Beaded Belt

Thanks to everyone who wished me luck on the interview! I'll let you all know the result.
So, late this afternoon I realized I did not have passport photos for the interview tomorrow. Not good... I had to go to Walgreens and take care of that. I could have gone in my sweats, however, since there are a few things I've made and have not photographed yet, I decided to get dressed. The weather around 6pm was cool, so I could not wear any of the summer garments I've sewn, however, I still managed to incorporate the beaded belt I made.
The belt is made from the same beaded trim I used for my necklace. Obviously, all you need is trim and snaps, very easy!

I have worn it with a plain white tee, with an oversized gray tee, with a white button-down, there are plenty of options. It dresses up simple tops and since it is in itself jewelry-like, you don't have to wear any other.

Here is how I wore it today:


I apologize for not having posted in a long time. I am taking an intensive 5-week course that is normally taught over a 14-week period. Although I don't find the material difficult, there is a lot of reading and writing involved which takes a lot of time.
I am also scheduled for my citizenship interview and test tomorrow afternoon, so I had to prepare for that as well.
DH started traveling again and is away 4 days a week. DD is, of course, missing him and clinging to me more than usual.
All in all, I have no sewing time. I started a puffy skirt 2 weeks ago that I am yet to finish. I also have some things that have been finished for a while now but the weather has been so unpleasant that I am still to take photos of them.
Hopefully the interview/test tomorrow will go smoothly.
I'll try to post a finished project by the end of the week.
