{ blah, blah, blah }

My infatuation with Blabla kids continues. And if it's possible, these dolls just got even cuter, thanks to these new dress-up costumes! What fun!  My boys went bonkers when I showed them this!

I think it'd be a toss up who'd have more fun with these...me or the boys!?  LOVE.

{ pleats, please }

I'm kinda obsessing about pleats over here.  Can not seem to get enough.  I'm especially loving these intricately designed lovelies.    

Hmmm, these have me thinking of DIYing a cheap pair of sandals. Seems easy, right?


Yep, need a wedding dress do over after seeing this!

Wouldn't mind having this lady on my sofa.


I picked up this darling skirt for $20 last week!  Score.

{ i spy a diy - the picnic polo }

One of my favorite kind of projects is the kind where you take a boring piece of clothing and give it new life with trimmings or embellishments.  These kinds of "re-fashions", as lot of people call them, totally rock because they are quick, easy and usually really cheap.

I picked up this plain, red striped polo for a buck at the thrift store.  I added a ruffle trim (using this fabric), a cool measuring tape ribbon to the placket, and some pretty wooden buttons, and I had a whole new look that I love.

Picnic anyone? ;)

{ pretty pink picnics }

We'll be having lots of picnics this summer. I'm sure they'll look a lot like these.....

Pin It          Teehee.  Not so much.  But it's fun to dream, yes?  ;)

{ it's summer! }

We are soooo ready for the lazy and/or fun-filled summer days! We've put together our list of fun things to do in the next few months.

I don't like to plan too much because I love to keep summer feeling really care free.  What do you have on your list?

{ frocking out }

I caught a show on TLC recently about people and their various collections.  I was chatting with the Mr., and saying that I don't really collect anything, but I'd like to.  And he said, "I don't know.  It seems like you've started quite the collection of Anthropologie dresses." Ha!   He's got me there.  I actually do consider myself a bit of a curator of these lovelies.  I'm excited that warm weather is here, and I can start breaking out the pretty frocks!

top row: highest accolades dress, caranday dress, sugar and cream dress
second row: sunny soiree dress, two wheeler dress, paraiso dress
bottom row: bike lane dress, vappu dress, sing sweetly dress

Pin It             Do you look forward to dress weather as much as I do?
