Hey friends! I’ve been in Texas (woo, Longhorns!) the past week for an amazing blogging conference and am back in action. Before I give a total rundown tomorrow, I wanted to post the second way I styled this fab shirt.
Remember the before…
The size was wrong, seams were undone, and the sleeves were too big because the elastic was worn out.
But, that pattern was good. SO good!
Cute and casual now, right?
So, lets see how this works dressed up a bit more…
When you find a red velour nightgown on your thrifting adventures, you immediately think, “this is something 6-year-old me wore.”
Seriously, this could be the adult version of my Christmas Eve jammy-jams.
I feel like it’s my upcycling duty to make this piece work.
Because, there’s lots of potential here.
Non-nightgown-y potential here, ya know?
Hi friends!! I’ve been traveling this week so I’m a bit behind on posting, but I wanted to give you a teaser on what to look forward to over the next few days.
This mustard yellow dress is a total delight. The skirt is thick and quilty, the color is perfect for this time of year, but it needs a bit of help.
Hey collar, haaaaaaaaaay!! Plus lime green to boot!! Can’t wait to show you the after look of this guy.
Love this light blue muumuu. The neck ties make for a perfect hair accent!
I feel like Cinderella with our matching blue hair sashes
Three fun outfits with three even more fun after looks to come… Would any of these make it into your Goodwill basket??
Happy Friday, friends!! I just wanted to thank you for all the warm wishes and thoughts being sent my way – my dad is doing amazingly well, post-surgery, and my week of hanging out with the family during his recovery has come to an end. So long North Carolina and your beautiful white blossoms – I couldn’t take my eyes off of the gorgeous flowers!
We took a quick pic before I left because he said that I had to do something with his scrubs!! His nurse gave me an extra set to sew and I just can’t wait to work them into something fantastic! That’s on the summer project list, for sure.
It was fun to go a bit offline this week to hang out, help run errands, pick up meds, and cook (lots of homemade hummus and other heart healthy snacks) before getting back into the swing of things at home.
I will be getting this dress finished to post on Monday…
…so get ready for a new, revamped, satin blue bridesmaid dress!
In the interim, there are a few giveaways going on – a $100 Visa gift card with a copy of Save the Date by Mary Kay Andrews as well as a $100 Target gift card and a three month subscription to the DIY/crafty company For the Makers! Head on over to enter!!
Have a most incredible weekend!
My girl Amber submitted a piece a while back (refresher HERE!) and I have to say that I’m obsessed with what she does. Her before looks are totally on par with mine as well, which cracks me up! I love the “let’s give sour face when we’re wearing something not so pleasant” move. It’s my go-to when I’m shooting the before looks – I live for the sour face and she totally nails it. Also, her recreations have been über chic. See what she’s up to today!!
My roommate was cleaning out her closet and was tossing this shirt, so I got it for free! Obviously it doesn’t fit my bust region, so I’m going to turn it into a skirt!
Let’s turn this puppy into a truck, y’all!
