What I Wore {Everyday Style}

Honestly, I don't get dressed much these days. Since I've started yoga and its summatime I live in yoga pants (like legit now... not just my fake out clothes) and bathing suits. But here are some looks from the last couple of weeks!

It's getting HOT here. It went from being rainy and chilly to 90s overnight. I'm not complaining AT all but I am having to get used to lesser clothes. It always takes me a couple outfits to get used to baring my legs and shoulders :).... But give me heat. I'm a sun gal.

Sew Lately

I tried a couple of new patterns last week and they were so fun!

SerapeDream03SerapeDream04FlightRomper05FlightRomper03FlightRomper01Hummingbird Romper by Rabbit Rabbit Creations [here]

PicnicDress01 CactiFieldFun04Hummingbird Dress by Rabbit Rabbit Creations [here]

Both of these patterns are great, easy to follow, and very detailed. Perfect sew for a beginner seamstress with a wide range of sizes from newborn all the way up to girls 12.

The cactus dress and both of the rompers are available in my Etsy shop [here].

I've made this dress before. Last summer. Love, love, LOVE this pattern so much.....the simplicity of it and that BACK. Oh, its so sweet. Elle loves this dress. Fun, fast sew.

This dress is also available in my Etsy shop [here].

Happy FRIDAY and happy WEEKEND. T.G.I.F. We have had one heck of a week, but that's another post in its entirety. I'm off to see Imagine Dragons with my best girlfriend today. I'm so excited and, honestly, this weekend couldn't have come at a better time.

What I Wore {Coral Crush}

I have had this top for weeks and have been so excited to wear it and finally got to over the weekend. On our way to church we stopped off at a white background to snap some pictures and it ended up being the windiest spot in NWA. Ha! This was the only time all morning that my shirt blew open like this.

OrangeCrush03I love any clothing that is unique and this top definitely is that. Wraps in the front and the back and I love how it shows off the shoulders. It will be so fun with high-waist shorts, culottes, and printed pants this summer too. Very fun and versatile. A great top for any occasion.

Happy Wednesday! We are off on another adventure. Staying busy and loving it.

Glo Makeover

A couple of Saturdays ago I had the pleasure of getting a Makeover by Sarah at Glo in Fayetteville. It has been a really long time since I've had my makeup done and it was definitely a treat for sure.

GLO01Such a pretty and tranquil set up. I can't even begin to describe how good it smells in there too.

GLO02All the pretty makeup. I'm not a product junkie but even this got me excited. I could play in that makeup all day.

GLO03Sarah. Not only is she knowledgeable about her craft she is also so fun and sweet. I really enjoyed getting to know her a little bit and sharing pictures and stories of my kids with her.

GLO04And. After. I love all the plums she used.

GLO05I learned some new technique, got some new makeup and had a wonderful morning of a little me time. Which is so crucial these days. Ha!

In case you are wondering I left with a few new products: Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift concealer [here],  Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturizing Foundation [here], and Secret Brightening Powder [here]. If you have dark circles (I matter how much sleep I get and my iron levels are fine) you MUST try the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. It's my new must have beauty product for sure!

glo_makeoverThe before/after that Glo posted on their Instagram [here]. What a change!

Fun, fun morning Glo. Thank you so much for this treat!

Sewing. And Summer.

Wow. I have been away from this space TOO long.

I have been sewing A LOT! Finishing and shipping orders, and managed to fit in some new patterns and fabrics. I will do a separate post to share the info of the patterns I used next week.

I added some new listings to the shop this week. Check them out if you so wish [here]!

We also recently got a membership to the athletic club close to our house and we have been spending a lot of time there as well. My kiddos love their childcare and we all love their pool!

I mean this girl has got summer ALL figured out :)

We picked up these fun shirts last weekend at the Little Craft Show. I thought it would be a fun picture before we headed to the gym one morning but my kids weren't really feeling it. The shirts are from a cute little shop called Tiny Little Specks [here]. Super fun goods. Elle's tank says "quit calling the wildflowers weeds". So perfect for her!

I was a little worried about how this summer was going to go for us. Downtime leads to boredom for my two and that leads to fighting, whining, and all that craziness... I can hear some "amens" out there! But so far, summer has been good to us. I learned fast that if we have an activity nearly every day we are all happier. Thankful for the pool at the club and other little activities around our town for us to take part in!

I'll be back to more regular postings next week, I've learned my new summer schedule and have found where I can fit in my blogging!

Happy Saturday!
