what I'm wearing By May 21, 2012 14 Comments

I found this red, flowy skirt at a thrift store last week, and I’m pretty sure it will be a summer staple. I can’t tell you how many times I don’t find anything while I scour thrift stores, and then I’ll score a couple gems and it’s so fun and motivating!
Skirt, thrifted. Gray tank, hand-me-down from my sister. Denim jacket, Gap. Flip flops, Old Navy. Fine feather necklace, soon to be in our shop.

What I’m Wearing {navy, red & aqua)

what I'm wearing By May 16, 2012 30 Comments

Hey friends, it’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration. You’ve seen all the pieces of this outfit before–except for maybe the belt {which I found on sale at J Crew}. The aqua belt keeps the outfit from being too ‘americana’.  I’m not going to a 4th of July picnic–just to the workshop.

Striped tee, Banana Republic. Red skinny jeans, Target. Aqua belt, J Crew. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Denim Jacket, Gap. Sneak peek of a necklace soon to be in our shop–more on that soon!

Wanna know a secret? I get dressed in the morning, think, “This a fun outfit, I’ll take a few pics.” Then I edit the photos, upload them to my blog and that’s when the waves of insecurity start to wash over me. “This is the lamest outfit” I think. Or “my hips looks huge.” Or “my hair is ridiculous.”  And then I get a grip, remind myself not to take it too seriously and I share it anyway.  Fashion is fun, but it’s certainly not the most important thing, is it?

Here’s to finding a little bit of inspiration in the small things.

what i’m wearing {coral and yellow}

what I'm wearing By May 14, 2012 16 Comments

It has been really warm lately–and it’s wonderful! The mornings start out cool and then the sun warms everything up by noon. And at 7:30pm there is still a lovely glow to the evening. Don’t you love longer days? This is an easy outfit for the workshop and the wedges are comfortable enough to wear all day long. Mixing coral and yellow is a new combo for me–but nothing too crazy, right?

 

 Boyfriend jeans, Gap. Yellow tee and coral cardi, both Target. Embroidered belt, Lucky Jeans. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Connected Necklace, my shop.

This outfit is super casual but dressed up just a bit with wedges, a belt and lipstick. Once I get home I switch out my wedges for flip flops and start dinner. Then after dinner I put on my jammies and get the boys bathed. What’s your now-I’m-home-and-it’s-time-to-get-comfy routine?

What I’m Wearing {red skinny jeans}

what i wore wednesday, what I'm wearing By May 9, 2012 18 Comments

I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

I’m starting to think bright denim might be my go to look for this summer. That and maxi skirts. So easy and so fun! Target is carrying some colorful skinny jeans for only $25. Love that. I couldn’t find the jeans online, but I found them at my local Target.

what i’m wearing {re-fashioned sleeves}

what I'm wearing By May 8, 2012 13 Comments

I got this dress on sale at Anthropologie a few months ago and it had big puffy sleeves that weren’t very flattering. So after a few tries of putting it on and trying to make it work, I took a pair of scissors and cut the sleeves off. I washed it and the raw edge came out fine. Now I love the dress!
Dress and boots, both Anthropologie. Leopard print belt, TJ Maxx. Vintage bangles, thrifted. Sun droplets necklace, my shop.

For this dress, it was either give it away or do something drastic with the sleeves. Have you altered a piece of clothing lately?

What I’m Wearing {how to wear leopard print}

what I'm wearing By May 5, 2012 23 Comments

Hi friends! It’s the weekend and we are happy to be lazy. Our big plans? We’re off to see the new Avengers movie. The boys in this house have been counting down to this weekend {and I’m excited, too!} I’m going to start splitting up my What I Wore Wednesday posts into individual posts sprinkled throughout the week. Here’s an outfit from a couple days ago…
I picked these leopard print pants up from Target for about $16. Steve calls them my ‘crazy pants’! They are kind of crazy, but kind of fun too, right?

Black wedges from Payless and a denim top from Chico’s keep the rest of the outfit simple.

Bits of my Heart Bracelet from My shop.

Sun droplet necklace from My shop.

 Large cuff, found at flea market. Aqua bangle, Target.

I love mixing a little leopard print into an outfit–although these pants are definitely more than a little! Do you {or would you} wear leopard print?
