Hey Guys!! We’ve landed safely back home, exhausted but very, very happy. We had a wonderful time and I have a bunch of silly photos to share. But first I want to say again how thankful I am to all my lady blogger friends who wrote posts for me and to all you lovely readers who stopped by to read their posts. And to those who emailed me, I promise I will get back to y’all shortly.
And now for some vacation shots after the break (warning photo heavy)
Do You Want Fries With That?
How amazing is this print eh? I am seriously in love with it and it’s not even my style. But once in a while you see something and it just speaks to you and you know you can’t live without it. Every time I put this dress on it puts a huge smile on my face, and brightens up my whole day.
Oh, and the dress is so comfortable. And it has pockets. And there is really nothing bad to be said about this dress.
Sunnies & Cardigan- OldNavy
Legging- Nicole Miller
Seriously, this print is amazing. It makes me feel amazing.
I hope you guys felt amazing today too.
I am in love with this dress, since the moment I saw it I knew we were going to be best friends. The color, the cut, the crinoline all come together to become my dream dress. It makes me feel like a pretty little 1950’s housewife, even if I did have to go to work today.
Dress- Suzy Shier
Shoes- The Gap
Cardigan- Old Navy
Accessories- Gifted and Thrifted
I am loving this print; the pink and orange make my heart swoon.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic week.
Spring is for Making Things
Hey party peeps! Sorry for the lag between posts, but I am been all caught up in the world of creating things. Inspiration is everywhere this spring on the internet, in magazines, in the sun and in everything piece of my clothing and in all my art supplies.
Sadly the weather here still isn’t great, we are still living with sub zero temperatures. So no outfit posts for a little while, even though I am loving all the spring outfits I am coming up with! No, I thought I’d share more DIYs I have been loving and making lately. This one is from the fabulous Erica’s blog P.S. I Made This . She posted this tutorial for a rhinestone headband, and I immediately went through my supplies and made one for myself.
It is super simple and quick to make. Although she used raffia on her headband, but I used embroidery thread so it took a little bit more time because I had to wrap it around a few more times. But I loved the results, it’s shiny but small and perks up a mundane updo.
After I was finished my first one, I decided I wanted to make another but a little bit bolder. I picked a wider headband, and used two strands of rhinestones and used a shiny bright orange ribbon.
I love them both but I have to say this orange one is my favorite. It’s so pretty and kinda makes me feel like I am wearing a socially acceptable tiara.
Anyway, I hope spring is bringing you nice weather and lots of creative energy.
Are you guys working on any DIYs this spring? Let me know I’d love to hear about it or see it or make it too.
Romantic Votive Holders
Spring fever has hit! The snow is melting, the sun is shinning, the air is warmer and the sweet tea is in the fridge. But for me the best part of spring is that my energy revs up, which means time to create! So, I few days ago I saw this project for Sweet Votives on the blog Fellowfellow by the lovely Claire and I knew I had to make them as soon as I could get some jars cleaned off.
They are so romantic lit up at night with the small flowers illuminated. This project is super easy and only takes about an hour, her tutorial is really easy to follow too! I only made one change; I added the twine to the top to give it a little rustic feel.
Anyone else feeling revitalized by spring? I sure hope so.
This has been a miserable spring for us in Eastern Canada, cold and rainy everyday. But fortunately we had one sorta nice sunny-but-breezy day this week, so my Hubsterand I went out for a little spring walk. And while we were out my kind Hubster took some outfit photos for me. So this is my bumming-around-town-nothing-special outfit post.
The dress is from Old Navy, jean jacket from high school, thrift sweater, belt from Le Chateau and shoes from Payless. My rings were all thrifted.
This necklace was a gift from my Hubster, it has red sea glass inside.
I love how this dress catches the wind all the time, it makes beautiful shapes.
Well, that’s about it for me. I am hoping the weather gets nicer soon so that my outfits will improve. I tend to start to get drab when the weather’s been bad for a while.
And I have to apologize in advance if you don’t hear from me a lot this week. Our little city is being over taken by a congress conference and since I work in the downtown area I have to basically work night and day this week. Hopefully I will still be able to pop in a couple times this week. But if not I hope y’all have a good week.
