A Week of Outfits: Jodi Levine

Week of Outfits: Jodi Levine

I first discovered Jodi Levine through the pages of Martha Stewart Living, where she was the crafts editor for almost two decades. In addition to being one of the nicest, most creative people I know (check out her website Supermakeit), the author is also the most stylish — it’s impossible to run into her without asking “Where did you find that fill-in-the-blank?” And invariably, the answer is Old Navy, Target or Uniqlo. Here, the mother of two boys talks about creating original looks from larger stores…

Jodi Levine Style

Pinafore: Target, similar. Turtleneck: & Other Stories, similar. Boots: J. Crew, similar. Earrings: Rachel Comey.

“This pinafore was such a score, especially since it has pockets, which I always look for — I like to have my scissors easily accessible when I’m working. In general, I am a huge fan of jumpsuits and dresses. I love the comfort and how half the thinking is already done for you. This one is from Target. You can find interesting designer collaborations there, and I make a point to visit around holidays, when it feels like they’re pushing more creatively with prints and design.”

Jodi Levine style

Jumpsuit: Target, similar. Sneakers: Old Navy, similar. Necklace: handmade by Jodi from metallic cord.

“When my son Lionel was young, like really young and could barely string sentences together, he asked me out of nowhere, ‘Mommy, why you always say oh maybe when someone says they like your shirt?’ I said ‘I don’t know, honey, I’m not really sure what you’re talking about.’ Then soon after, I was out and somebody complimented me on what I was wearing and of course, I was like, ‘TEN DOLLARS OLD NAVY!’ and it all clicked. Just goes to show you how much ‘oh maybe’ I wear.”

Jodi Levine style

Vest: handmade. Shirt: similar. Pants: Target, similar. Sneakers: Nike, similar.

“I stand up at work all day, so comfy shoes are a must. These Nikes feel elegant and give me a little lift. The vest was my grandma’s. She lived in a super drafty old Brooklyn apartment and wore vests that she knitted herself to keep warm. She made this one from the tiny balls of leftover yarn she had from knitting things for other people, so the stripe design is literally created by her selflessness. I inherited the vest in the 90s when she passed away, and now I use it for the same purpose, when I’m working in my drafty attic studio. I always think of Grandma when I wear it.”

Jodi Levine style

“If there’s a common thread running through Supermakeit, and the rest of my work, it’s use what you have, which is exactly what I did as a kid. We didn’t have stores like Michaels back then, so I used to create things out of cardboard boxes. It still makes my heart race to walk by a recycling bin to see what’s in there. One of my favorite jobs these days is working for the New York Times for Kids, a special section that appears in print on the last Sunday of every month. I love everything about it — the art direction, the concept, everything. The stuff I do for them is illustrative of how wacky my work is in general. Last fall, I came up with a bunch of Halloween costumes. I never know what I’m going to be working on from one day to the next, and I love that.”

Jodi Levine style

Shirt: vintage. Pants: J. Crew. Boots: Topshop, similar.

“I bought this shirt at a flea market about 20 years ago and wore it through both of my pregnancies until I split the sides, and had to sew it closed. When I shop at flea markets, I try to look at the potential of clothes. The whole idea of what else can it be besides what it is definitely informs what I wear. I found one of my favorite tops at a flea market for $1, and it had these ugly puffy sleeves that I just cut right off. There are things you can do, even if you’re not an expert seamstress, and I’m definitely not.”

Jodi Levine style

Jacket: Uniqlo. Dress: H&M, similar. Tights: Uniqlo. Sneakers: Nike, similar. Tote: Baggu.

“I often decommission a ‘fancy’ dress into an everyday one after few ‘fancy wears.’ This jacket is from Uniqlo’s +J line, designed by Jil Sander a few years ago. Uniqlo does amazing collaborations, and not just with designers but with fine artists, like Kaws, who did the coolest Uniqlo-Sesame Street collection that my son loves.”

Jodi Levine style

Thank you so much, Jodi. See you at Oh Maybe!

P.S. More weeks of outfits, including corporate workwear and a honeymoon bikini.

  1. Cecelia J Callahan says...

    Such a refreshing attitude towards fashion, creativity and frugality! This is one of my favorite posts. Love the knitted vest story, so real and it melted my heart!

  2. lbinthebk says...

    My family and I *LOVE* the New York Times Kids Section!!! BRAVO, JODI!

  3. Loopdee Lou says...

    Beautiful lady both inside and out!

  4. Rachel says...

    Jodi was totally my professional icon when I was working at MS right out of college more than a decade ago. She shines so bright, and is so creative! Love the “Oh, Maybe” comment. Toddlers are the best, aren’t they?!
    Thanks for featuring such a cool chick, Jo!

  5. Tammy Thiele says...

    The coolest of style! I love it!

  6. Colleen says...

    Jodi, love your outfits. Style and edgy elegance.

  7. Kelly says...

    Can you do a warm weather week of outfits for her? I’m in Singapore and would love to copy some of her summer styles!

  8. Sally says...

    I NEVER comment, but had to write in to say that I LOVED her feature in MS Weddings in 2000- – I got married in July 2001, and completely copied her placecards in crepe paper flowers (except ours were put in galvanized buckets filled with polished stones!). THANK YOU JODI – I’m not a crafter, but you made it look easy, and we pulled it off!

    • Tanya says...

      SAME!! I copied all the pink and orange perfection. And her dress was pleated around the neck just like all the paper.

  9. Rose Mary Muench says...

    Jodi is everything she said she is, and I’m thankful every day that my son got her to say yes to his “will you?”

    • Alyssa says...

      Rose Mary, this is the sweetest comment! It makes me wish I knew Jodi in real life!

  10. Jennifer Rollins says...

    I loved, loved, loved the mention of boxes in the recycling. My 7 year old son pilfers through everyone’s recycling and makes the most, um, interesting creations. Give the kid a glue gun and a recycling bin, and he’s a happy camper. So nice to know it could turn into something wonderful! :)

  11. Laura says...

    Love this post and Jodi! I would love to see a post on her beauty uniform.

  12. jenn says...

    the pinafore dress is amazing..i definitely need one to wear over my flannels for springtime :]

  13. Brooke Reynolds says...

    Jodi is adorable, and has always rocked her own unique style (“Hey, Jodi. I love your necklace!” “Thanks! I made it out of little blocks my kids had.”)

    But she is also sincerely one of the nicest, kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. We could all use some more Jodi in our lives!

    • Lesley says...

      Hi Brooke! So fun to find you two today. Your comment made me laugh—captures Jodi completely!

  14. Janine says...

    Oh, I can tell from the shot of the train station that she lives in my town!!! Hi, neighbor! If I see her around, I’ll say hi. :)

  15. Kate says...

    Love this post so much!! It’s great to get inspiration from someone who makes such accessible fashion choices!

  16. Claire says...

    These are some great looking outfits! I love it all, but especially the grandma’s vest outfit and the vintage blouse combo. And that dress-tights- sneakers combo! seems both sophisticated and also a throw-back to my little girl days at the same time (when a girl had a dress to wear but also needed to move on the playground and be nimble and get some living done).

  17. Lesley says...

    I worked with Jodi years ago and this was all 100% true back then too. No one is nicer nor more stylishly dressed! She’s got a great eye. I asked her many times where she got things, and it was always Zara or H&M, and I always thought, why don’t *I* find anything at these stores??

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      i love that :)

  18. Nina says...

    what a lovely vest. just the sentiment makes me smile. as a person who can’t wear heels I fully embrace the “extra fancy” sneaker…today I’m wearing gold glitter with blue velvet laces. I think I’ll be making some felt lip balm holders…always scrounging in my bag for them as is my son in his backpack.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      those sneakers sound wonderful!! caroline often wears gold glittery sneakers, you guys are footwear soulmates :)

  19. Megan says...

    Love this! She’s given me ideas for things I already have, from stores where I usually shop.

  20. Emily says...

    Happy to have affordable styles shown, and happy to have more from Jenny!

  21. Kim Gray says...

    I have that H&M dress and totally forgot about it! I love how she dresses it down, I’m going to have to pull it out of my closet.
    And I can fully get behind her style of mixing pieces in from the big box stores. I’m always on the hunt for good value and I personally feel it’s a talent to be able to select those special pieces from the huge collections that box stores put out. There’s usually a few hidden gems!

  22. Em says...

    Jodi is the OG! And there’s just something about her smile that makes her seem so lovely and approachable!

  23. patricia blaettler says...

    My daughter just bought a similar corduroy jumper from Forever 21.
    It’s so cute!

  24. Jeanine Mitchell says...

    I love how she makes such high end looking outfits out of affordable options. As someone on a budget, I am always looking for inspiration from others and she hit the nail on the head! She is proof that it doesn’t cost a fortune to dress creatively and have fun with fashion.

  25. Sasha L says...

    Oh that vest!! So lovely! And the story makes it even more wonderful. I would buy that adorable jumper dress (could she look any sweeter in that outfit!!) if it sadly wasn’t sold out. Boo. Hey Target, please make more, in lots of colors.

    As someone who thrifts 95% and the new splurges come from Target (our old Navy story closed 😪), this post really felt accessible to me, thank you. To be honest, I have lots of great items from Target and old Navy, that came to me through thrift.

  26. My crafty 7.5 year old is OBSESSED with the NYT Kids section and counts down the Sundays until it’s published again. Thank you, Jodi, for your great work on it!

  27. Jenn says...

    I love seeing such a stylish woman proudly showing how she puts together clothing from the stores where—let’s admit it—most of America shops. As I get older, I aim more for the “fewer better things” ethos, but I’m also a writer married to a teacher with two kids. I’d love nothing more than to fill my closet with Madewell and Clare Vivier, but’s just not financially realistic for me. I don’t have an “investment wardrobe” at this juncture of my life, but I do care about fashion and want to have fun with it. I wear a lot of good finds from Marshall’s, Target, Loft, and if I’m paid a compliment on my outfit, I always cop to its origins.

    Style has little to do with money and a lot to do with attitude. Kudos to the CoJ team and this gorgeous lady for demonstrating that!

    • Cynthia says...

      I totally agree. Even clothes from Target last a long time for me because I take care of them. I also make a lot of my clothes.

    • Sarah says...

      “Style has little to do with money and a lot to do with attitude.” Totally agree!! So glad for this post of accessibly priced clothes! My new go to’s working part time and staying home are thrifting, clothing swaps in the community or mom groups, Old Navy (does anyone else get excited about Super Cash? Lol) and Target (love Universal Thread!). It takes more digging sometimes (and more online shopping and returns than I previously did since I have less free time to shop in person with a kid) but it is fun finding a treasure! I do pine for newly released Madewell items, but just can’t afford it… :( Sometimes I find them in my local thrift stores later on. It’s good to know I’m not alone!

    • Ashley F. says...

      Teacher married to a farmer with two kids… I relate a ton to your comment and completely agree. I wear these same brands everyday at work and while moming because 1) kids, 2) funds, and 3) sytle is not how expensive your clothes are. This post was real life, thanks CupofJo!

  28. Lauren E. says...

    I’m giggling. Oh Maybe!

  29. Martina says...

    I love her shoes! I really don‘t like wearing uncomfortable shoes and only recently found the courage to wear sneakers at my (conservative) place of work, but only with trousers. Now I will try it out with dresses and feel good about it! Yay!

  30. Maria says...

    I’d love to recreate the Halloween costume posted in the NYtimes – but unfortunately, I couldn’t find the how-to! does anybody know where it was posted?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      i’ll look around! they might not have put it online, unfortunately.

  31. LOVE everything about Jodi’s style and overall energy. Pure joy and loveliness. I have such a hard time shopping in today’s overly trendy stores and these images of Jodi give me hope. Thank you for sharing!

  32. That vest is a treasure. I love that this features such approachable big box names! The ‘oh maybe’ story is hilarious!

  33. I used to move house with every issue of Martha Stewart Kids magazine until I moved to England and just couldn’t take them. Those magazines were constant inspiration to me, as is Jodi. I’m so glad to see her work again in print, and always online.

  34. Julie says...

    I’ve been a Jodi fan since seeing her and Fred’s wedding in Martha Stewart Weddings in the late nineties. Her handmade wedding was full of color and beauty, and i followed her throughout Martha Stewart Kids (now i sound like a creepy stalker…i swear I’m not! What an incredible artist she is…thank you COJ!

  35. Jemma says...

    I really loved the story about the vest made by her grandma. I have a similar one, because I inherited a knit vest made by my mom in the 80s. Originally made for my grandpa, my grandma took to wearing after he passed away and now I’ve inherited and wear it. Not as often as I would like, as it feels precious and doesn’t always go with everything, but seeing Jodi rock her sweater vest reminds me I ought to not care, and wear mine too. Too often we save things for later, rather than enjoying them in the now. I have been stuck in that mindset at times, but have slowly been shifting it. So important to wear and do things that spark joy.

  36. CJ says...

    This gave me a belly laugh because my 3 year old calls it Old Maybes. It is precious! What a sweet and soulful woman, with the stories about her grandma’s vest and her son. I truly wish our younger generation appreciated the vintage, passed down pieces that we’ll leave behind.

  37. A Martin says...

    Btw I took three screenshots of outfits. I am so inspired!! And that Uniqlo jacket! Must have!!

  38. A Martin says...

    Oh Maybe!?! How SWEET!!! I LOVE her whimsical, stylish and charming style 🥰😍

  39. Sara says...

    Proof that anything can look good when it’s worn with confidence! Grandma’s vest? Check! Stacked sneakers? Heck yea!

  40. Lydia says...

    Jodi has a great eye for color and patterns. Considering the environmental reality we are facing, I think we should all think twice before purchasing fast fashion. Using what we have, shopping friends closets, thrifting are all more sustainable options. Intentional choices are within our power. :)

    • Meredith says...

      Good for the environment and good for the wallet! I have felt very empowered to shop less and focus on scoring versatile pieces second hand once I got married and realized how much less men spend on clothes than women (in general of course). Stopping to think about how I prioritize my spending has had positive impact on both my wardrobe and my savings account!

    • Rue says...

      I’m an earth scientist, and in my professional opinion, the changes we need to make to ensure a hospitable environment for humans HAVE to come from big corporations and national governments. The problem is too big, and a handful of companies and countries are responsible for the vast majority of greenhouse gas outputs.

      That’s not to say that individual choices don’t matter, or that cultivating a sense of personal responsibility isn’t important — because I think that’s an important foundation for promoting the big-picture changes. But I disagree with scolding people for Target shopping. Curtailing individual “big box store” purchases won’t do enough to lower global temperatures. Ensuring that oil companies reduce their production and that giant economies slow their oil/gas/coal/resource consumption — that’s what we’ve got to work together to achieve.

    • Tis says...

      I agree, Rue. I’m so tired of seeing the guilt and fatigue and stress “we the people” are carrying about the environment, when our governments allow these huge corporations causing so much more damage to run free. We’re all recycling dutifully, finding the time to darn socks (just me?), and chastising ourselves for not doing more…and those companies making millions and billions? They don’t care a whit, and no one’s holding them accountable. It makes me so angry.

    • Aleena says...

      Thanks for weighing in Rue! As a new mom with limited time, I’ve been struggling with how best to participate in the campaign against climate change. Cup of Jo – maybe a piece about the best things for individuals to do?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      yes, aleena, we are working on a post! thank you so much for these thoughtful comments.

    • Rue says...

      Aleena, in terms of individual choices that add up to a sizable impact, the biggest change you can make is eating vegetarian. Other changes are a “drop in the bucket” compared to this change, because meat production creates so many greenhouse gas emissions, and your impact is so “concentrated” by the time you eat the animal that was raised and fed so it could be eaten.

      There are plenty of good “pro-environment” choices you can make. But it’s almost like fighting a war only through resource rationing. Wartime rationing should be in support of a big-scale change that governments are making. We shouldn’t just be baking without sugar (or pick your favorite WWII rationing measure).

    • Kelly says...

      Thank you for all of these points. I struggle a lot with this too. Rue – what about the argument that we “vote with our dollars”? If we all keep buying at Old Navy, Target, etc then they will continue to keep up with the demand. I think we saw this with a lot of the changes towards organic food in the last 10 years. Big corps saw the demand for that type of food and some (keyword: some) started making changes or providing more organic options.

    • Joaquina says...

      @Rue,
      You really expect “big corporations” to show any interest in earth-friendly measures when there is not financial incentive to do so? I appreciate your professional viewpoint but please let’s not discount the power of the individual. Large, sweeping changes really can come from multiple small (i.e., many individuals) changes. Let’s not pass the buck and expect the government, especially an administration that denies science and decreases funds for EPA, to make forward changes for the environment.

    • liz says...

      Thanks for adding this important reminder, Lydia. I’m a big believe in voting with our dollars and our decisions. I also don’t think it’s fair to make choices that hurt literally everyone on the planet for the sake of saving some cash, when you could just as easily save that cash by thrifting. Just my thoughts, though, life is hard and I know everything is a balance and struggle.

    • Rue says...

      I deeply respect and appreciate individual choices to reduce your individual impact on our environment. I hope that translates to bigger changes, and it is something I take seriously in my own life. But I don’t like making people feel guilty or burdened about their individual decisions as consumers, because unfortunately we are tiny and the problem is huge. The “big corporations” in question are not ones like Target or Old Navy, but private and state-run energy companies. Much of that energy goes into manufacturing things like buildings and cars and roads and the physical infrastructure of factories themselves. The greenhouse gas impact of your consumer products is (frustratingly!) a drop in the bucket compared to those big resource-intensive projects. I sincerely wish it made a bigger difference where your clothing comes from. And again I still make the decision myself to be as environmentally conscious as I can in my consumption. But the puzzle we’re working with is so huge.

  41. Ann says...

    This was a great profile; she has amazing style. The best accessory of all is her terrific smile in every photo!

  42. Wearing grandma’s sweater! How sweet is that?! I love it. She has such a fun style.

  43. Marti says...

    I love that everything she wears looks so fresh and unique… but it’s all actually SO ACCESSIBLE! It’s a great reminder that, with a little creativity, items from bigger stores can be fun statement pieces. I typically gravitate towards more basics from places like Target, but I’m inspired. Unfortunately, Uniqlo’s sizing runs too small for me (and a lot of other women — see @the12ishstyle’s #makemysize on IG!).
    Also, side note, every single time a new Week of Outfits is posted, I pinch myself that you guys thought I was cool enough to be featured among these remarkable women. What. The. Heck.

    • Fernanda Abreu says...

      You are gorgeous and so f*** cool. I loved the post with you :)

  44. shannon says...

    That’s it. I need to try the Uniqlo tights. It seems they’re in nearly every other beauty uniform!!

    • Sandhya says...

      If you try them, be warned — they run VERY small. They are great, as long as you order the XL!

  45. Jojo says...

    Thank you for throwing this in because it’s exactly why I must read your site every single day. I’ll glance at GOOP but more to gawk at the price of blouses and impractical sandals. This is real style. These are real women. Again, thank you.

  46. Amy says...

    I love her creativity and sense of style. Like an art statement.

    COJ, is it possible to profile a few more of us who are ‘vertically challenged’ yet stylish? I like the current style of wearing sneakers or trainers with outfits (seems to work for taller women), but I’d literally look like a middle schooler if I tried that.

    • Sar says...

      Totally! I am 5’1 and 1/2 on a Tall Day and have a lot of trouble not feeling like a 14 year old. Cuffing jeans and showing a little ankle helps… but it’s COLD!

    • Melanie says...

      Yes! I sadly can’t wear clothes from the big box stores because I have to wear petite. I would love to see where short girls find their clothes! I agree with the sneakers. I look like a kid! Love these posts and all the great women you feature.

    • Caroline says...

      I second this!!

    • Emily says...

      I love this week of outfits but also putting out a request to the CoJ goddesses to feature some shorter women! Thanks thanks!

    • Another 5’2 (on a good day) reader who’d love to see this feature!

    • Stephanie says...

      Another vote for petite ideas!

    • BB says...

      Yes yes yes to petites!

    • Beth says...

      Please! 5’2″ and not thin!

    • Laura D. says...

      Another vote for shorter lady styles—5’2” over here!

    • Cynthia says...

      I’m 5’1″ at most. I do have to hem slacks and jeans, although this cropped look means they are the right length for me. I make a lot of my clothes. I look for 3/4 sleeves because they are just right for me. I usually wear low heels because I like comfort. I think Old Navy has petite sizes on line. Until slow or sustainable fashion becomes more affordable, it’s out of my price range. I love Ace & Jig’s fabrics, but $300 for a cotton dress is out of reach for me and I can’t even afford their sales. In my city, they’re not likely to turn up in a thrift or consignment shop. If we all shopped less, it might help. I try not to buy unless I need it.

    • Joanna Goddard says...
    • Em says...

      Any your comment made me laugh. It’s so true! 😂

  47. Becca says...

    Jodi Levine! When I was in graduate school I flipped through to an article by Jodi in the old Martha Stewart kids magazine. I bought the magazine off the bookstore shelf and saved it for years, dreaming about when I could use her brilliant ideas with my own kids! I still have the magazine!

    • Lauryl says...

      Yes!! Jodi Levine has been one of my favorite people to follow since I discovered her on MS Kids! She’s such a creative inspiration and has always seemed like a beautiful person. Thank you for showing her everyday hip style!

      IMHO, we could all use more Jodi if you ever wanted to add another column! I know COJ isn’t a craft haven, but all of us mamas, aunts, grandmas, and cool uncles would love a cleverly designed Jodi craft for our fav kiddos once in a while. You’ve given us Jenny and Elizabeth lately (yes!!!!), please consider another addition!
      JODI, JODI, JODI!

  48. bisbee says...

    You refer to Oh Maybe…what is that?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      Oh it’s how her son thought she was saying “oh maybe” but she was saying “old navy” — in the second quote. Hope that helps! :)

  49. Em says...

    I feel like I say this with each new person you feature but… she’s my favorite.

    Also “old navy” being mistaken for “oh maybe”. What a great story.

  50. Bec says...

    It took me about 5 reads to understand the Oh Maybe anecdote! Cute.

  51. Jenna says...

    Love the Grandma-vest. I have a quilted embroidery coat my grandmother made for herself that I inherited. It has so many colors, weird animals random bits…you name it. She got so much delight out of that crazy coat and I am slowly gaining the confidence to wear it….this just gave me a bit more.

  52. Jodi is one my favorite people (who also happens to be the mother of my son’s best friend.) I can say firsthand that this is a completely accurate portrayal as she always looks fantastic!

  53. Hali says...

    She’s a vision! Oh, I just loved this one. The cheerful way she is unpretentious about clothing makes me so happy. It’s one thing to say “oh! I got this at Old Navy can you believe it?!” and it’s another to admit freely that “yes! old navy! I enjoy shopping there!” She’s obviously got a beautifully creative mind and way of thinking of things and her clothing totally reflects that! As a long time denim snob, I’m seriously tempted to go into Oh Maybe and try a pair on… I’ve heard great things!

    • N in DC says...

      I don’t normally comment, but I agree. She’s so unpretentious and cheerful. This was a great post- she seems like such a warm person. I want to go to thrifting with her- we can wear our Nike hi-tops.

  54. Maire says...

    Her first outfit with the corduroy pinafore, matte black tights and brown boots is basically my #outfitgoals. I also love her dress with tights and sneakers- it is a look I frequently wear myself.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      I loved the first one so much too!!!!

  55. Lauren says...

    The vest is fabulous. I think I’ll make one. And strangely enough, I love those Nike shoes. Maria Khoreva wears similars, and I always thought they were super cute.

  56. Kate says...

    This has given me some great ideas for how to make some of my mom’s old “hippie” clothes from the 60’s and 70’s fit – I’m going to cut off the arms!

    Also, the comment about the recycling bins brought back a fun memory that I’d forgotten. For a long time my family ate every week at the same restaurant that was next door to a frame store. We’d always leave through the kitchen because we parked in back, so we would walk right by the frame store’s dumpster and always check out what treasures were in there! We always took home loads of foam core and thick paper and other remnants and it was the best for at-home art projects!

  57. Em says...

    She is my new style icon – she does it so well!

  58. Lorraine says...

    I love this and can relate – as a mom of two (whose true love is thrifting, but who has time anymore) my wardrobe does revolve around Target, Uniqlo & Old Navy – with some H&M and Everlane (thanks Cup of Jo) thrown in there.

  59. Oh, I loved, loved, loved her wedding in MS!! Looking forward to checking out her website. These week of outfits are so great – love to see how people pull things together.

  60. Leo says...

    I love this style and the great red lipstick in the last picture. Could you maybe ask where she got it? Thanks in advance!

    • Franny Eremin says...

      Hi Leo! It’s Revlon #525 Wine with Everything: https://amzn.to/2NkRdak

      xo

  61. kiki says...

    Oh wow! What a fun week of outfits. Anyone else getting Jennifer Garner vibes from her??

    • Kat says...

      Thought the same thing! I just loved everything about her. And I too am a fan of Oh Maybe. What a cute story!

    • Jenny says...

      I see a resemblance to Sally Hawkins from The Shape of Water!

    • (Her brother-in-law weighing in here)
      It’s funny you mention Jennifer Garner: Back in her Martha Stewart days Jodi and Jennifer Garner were guests on Martha’s show at the same time, while both were pregnant. Of course Jodi is so self-effacing that she didn’t let us know she was going to be on the show!

      I can confirm she is a lovely and genuine person all around.

    What a joy to find this post after 5 days of sorting through my widower dad’s house as he prepares to downsize and finding all of my late mother’s sewing, crochet, embroidery, knitting and craft supplies, tools, books, mimeographed patterns and more. It reminded me of all that she taught me. I’m thinking of sewing some clothes again, maybe an A-line skirt in time for summer. Thanks for the inspiration. (What a vest!)
