If there’s anything you’re used to seeing around here, it’s home decorating changes. No matter what, I’m always getting inspired to mix up the color scheme, add elements for different seasons, or even just rearrange furniture for the heck of it.

This Summer I got really inspired to add more color into my space. I read that the best way to decorate is to look at your wardrobe and see what colors you gravitate toward. As it turns out for me, that is a lot of white, gray, pink, green, and blue. I had the white, gray, and pink down, but adding green and blue was something new for me in my little bachelorette pad.

Happy (late) Summer!! It’s been a light month for posting for me since my brother got married and I was preoccupied cutting squares of fabric to cover little jam jars as favors, but I managed to sneak in a really adorable new sewing project! This button front midi skirt is my new favorite wardrobe staple. Continue reading “White Button Front Midi Skirt Sewing Tutorial” →
In my 15+ years of sewing, my ambitions started high (i.e. making a gown with very cheap fabric), steeply dropped (i.e. making many, many tube skirts), and tapered off at easy-medium level projects. I’ve made my fair share of jersey swing dresses, tee shirt dresses, a couple of peplum hem shirts, and generally anything with a forgiving fabric and silhouette.

In the last year I have come to appreciate good lounge wear. White tees and jogger pants have been my favorite go-to items when I want to be cozy at home. Having non-ratty tee shirts and PJ shorts that aren’t from middle school actually does keep me motivated even after I’ve come home after a long day of work to get some chores done or cook a decent meal. Not to mention it’s much more appropriate for running out to the grocery store for a last minute item. Continue reading “The Perfect Jogger Pants Sewing Tutorial” →
This project goes way back into the beginning of Fall 2017 when I first set my eyes on the Leith Ruched Body-con Tank Dress on Instagram on possibly ever fashion blogger ever. So flattering and so versatile, I couldn’t believe the number of outfit opportunities I saw for it. Whether it was dressed up for a dinner with heels and a great bag, or dressed down with sneakers, a baseball cap, and a sweatshirt tied around the waist, I knew I needed one of my own.

Over the weekend, I hosted Megan’s bachelorette party with all of her incredibly sweet friends, and we had the BEST time! These days, weddings and the associated parties can get so out of hand and outrageous, and it was important to her that we keep things casual. In order to do that, it was very DIY and required some planning, but it turned out to be such a great time where we focused on spending time together and showering the bride-to-be.
(Yes, I did theme every itinerary item with Bridesmaids quotes…)
