A Fabulous May Day

Hello Lovelies!

I’ve been MIA for a while, its hard for me to keep up on the regular with this blog, so don’t expect a massive amounts of posts all of a sudden! 😉

I woke up this morning to a lovely rain shower. I sleep with my window open and to hear the rain on the tin roof is quite possibly my favorite sound in the world. It makes me want to curl up in bed all day and read Jane Austen, with old french music playing in the background and a cup of tea……

Wait, where was I, oh ya back to reality, work.

I was excited because I get to bring out the rain boots one more time before summertime sets in and they have to be put away for the season.

I also saw Blake Lively’s hair at the MET Gala and was inspired with a old school hairdo this morning. Its kind of my favorite fall back hairstyle when my hair isnt cooperating!

Speaking of hair I’ve been on a crazy braid kick, thanks to Missysue.com
She did 20 braid for the month of April and I tried my had at a few of them.
Braids are a great way for me to keep my hair off my face and neck during the summertime. I love a good crown braid!

Here’s some that I tried

This one is called the triple french braid double waterfall braid

This one is from a different gal and its called the loose side french braid

Side-swept waterfall braid(still mastering the art of the waterfall braid)

And last we have the double dutch braid bun!

And last but not least, I just hit the 150 days of happiness with this handsome fella right here!

So blessed to have found a perfect match to me in every way! Cant wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us two!

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to remember your mothers on Sunday!

Weeks round up!

Sorry I’ve been MIA, I still have been taking pictures just haven’t had time to post them up.
Here’s a quick run down of what I wore last week.

20140407-104047.jpg
I just love this sapphire blue sweater I got on clearnace at Target recently. It really is a good color for me. I tend to stay away from blues if they have a navy tone, because I used to work in a job that required me to wear navy blue everyday. I now hate it.

20140407-104058.jpg

I wore this out to dinner with my best friend at Buffalo Wild wings. Hats are my saving grace if my hair is on its last days before a wash. I hated the trim that was originally on it, so i removed it and put this cute stretchy lace headband on instead. Perfect spring time combo

20140407-104118.jpg

  This is an old favorite of mine, I got this dress on clearance last year at Target, another favorite color or mine.

20140407-104138.jpg
This was lazy day, and honestly wasn’t my favorite outfit, oh well.

20140407-104226.jpg
This is a glimpse of my Friday night outfit. I helped celebrate my friends 30th birthday. I got this 3/4 length lace black mini dress at H&M. and I love it!

Have a fabulous Monday!

Pete and Repeat

Its a total repeat outfit, but its been a long week and I was exhausted. I was even in bed before 10 pm last night!
My hair is froofy due to the weather and just didn’t want to think about what to wear so I threw this together. I’m just happy its Friday, because tonight its DIY night at my house with my good friend! I have a sewing project I’m working on right now.

TGIF!! Have a lovely day!

Polka dots and peplum: 60’s style

Yesterdays outfit was inspired by my little sister and a bit of Brigitte Bardot. I love a good 60’s Mad men style outfit on occasion. Its a little more office friendly than 40’a or 50’s style in my opinion.

I saw my sister pair a peplum with a blouse over the weekend and I never thought do it myself so I tried and I LOVE it, its a great way to wear a sleeveless peplum in these still chilly spring days!

Tut Tut, it looks like rain!

Hello!

I hope your weather is as nice as mine is today! Its all sunshiney, although we are to expect rain later this afternoon.
I’m wearing the rain boots again, just to keep my feet dry, and they are kinda cute!
I’m also wearing my new DIY graphic sweater and new DIY skirt(this is the reversible one.)
The graphic turned out decent, definitely learned some do’s and don’t’s while attempting this, but I like it. Didn’t cost me much at all, and I for sure will be giving it a second try.

Happy Hump Day: Restless Dream

Hey lovelies!

Quick post today! It’s super busy at work, but I did want to share my outfit today!

For those of you who will ask how I did my hair. I curled the ends, pulled it back into a ponytail. Took one strand and wrapped it around my hair tie, and bobby pinned in place. Then I took a small clear elastic hair tie and put it in about 2-3 inches down and then loosened up the top part between the hair ties. It’s a fun take on a classic pony tail!

Spring, the sweet Spring

“Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king, then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring, cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!”
Thomas Nashe

Hello my lovelies!

I don’t know what your weather looks like, but today I feel a hint of spring on it’s way. Nothing makes me happier than being able to put on my rain boots, and maybe reverting to the child inside of me and enjoying splashing through the puddles!

I paired my favorite rain boots with my new DIY skirt I made over the weekend and a chambray!

March comes in like a Lion.

Hello lovelies!

Hope your Monday is going well. Mines very busy, so I’m typing this up on my lunch! I spent the morning shoveling well over 5 inches of snow, so no outfit post, but I will share with you a few things!

First off, I won this AWESOME Rebecca Minkoff Purse last night! I reposted and tagged a photo on Instagram last week and lo and behold, I won! Can’t wait for this beauty to arrive in the mail!

My Sunday Funday was filled with DIYs since the weather looked like this

1511007_10153908511905525_2050818182_n

I made fresh banana bread( although my dang oven is very annoying and it got a little browner than I wanted, baking is NOT my forte) it was still delish once you cut off the darker parts.

I also picked up jersey knit to make some pencil skirts for work. I got my material for under $30 and got three skirts with leftovers to make a few turbands and maybe a addition to a shirt.

Then I bought a sweater and started this little graphic saying shirt

20140303-134539.jpg

And last but not least, I updated my chalkboard for March! I love having a chalkboard in my kitchen to draw on. Although my talent is nowhere near my friends, it’s a learning process

20140303-134645.jpg

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and a smooth Monday, keep your eyes open for the styling of my new skirts and of my new purse when I get it!!

Friday’s Child

T.G.I.F!

I’m so ready for this weekend! Although its going to be very very cold tomorrow, I’m looking forward to going to a hockey game with my love and just relaxing, not doing anything all day.

I went with a basic all black outfit today with my favorite blazer as a pop of color. I was originally going to wear a skinny cropped trouser, but the weather is just too cold for it.
