Do you have that one article of clothing that you love but feel like you can only wear it on special occasions because it’s “too fancy?” For me, thats anything in my closet that has sequins. Sometimes you got to just not care, think too much about it, and make that decision to rock it. Why not?! I mean, life’s too short to not look or feel fabulous everyday, right?! I decided to wear this sequin skirt and dress it down with just a plain ‘ol gray tee from James Perse and black booties from Jeffery Campbell. It’s the perfect mix of casual/cool and sparkly/fun!
Hope everyone has a fabulous week! XO
Christy: This past weekend we celebrated sister’s baby shower and after all the planning and DIY projects we did, I must say, it was a success!! Yeah! Here are some shots of the details that went behind the woodsy/arrow theme baby shower.
Leah: These arrows were fun to make. I got dowels and painted them. I also used printed tape sporadically to add more color and design. Then I cut two arrows with colored paper and glued them on top – one on each side. These arrows added a pop of color to the decor. My sister and I also decided to create our own woodsy baby shower invitation. We searched all over the web for a design that we liked and fit our theme, but at the end of the day, we decided to design one our own using Photoshop and walaaa!
Christy: We spent the night before the baby shower getting down in the kitchen. Meaning, we rolled up our sleeves and baked all these goodies you see in our dessert table. We made rice crispy treats, nutella croissants, and smores cupcakes For the smores cupcakes, we also made our own marshmallow-like frosting. The frosting is really made up of whipped egg whites and sugar. To tie in our woodsy theme, we also decided to add lil trail mix cups.
Leah: The triangle garlands you see on the left were made up of triangles I cut out from colored paper. I then randomly placed them together and then sewed them all together. We hung these triangle garlands all against our white walls to make our space feel more festive.
Christy: Our giveaways were Smores packages! I LOVE me some smores, and the fact we were having a woodsy theme party, it was only appropriate to have Smores! It was really fun making these giveaways too. Overall, I had sooo much fun planning this baby shower for my sister.
Leah: It’s good to be home on the west coast! We had our baby shower over this past weekend here in So Cal that was hosted by Christy. She did such a great job with everything. We decided to go with the woodsy arrow theme. It was hard trying to choose a theme..thank God for Pinterest! Living in the midwest, we thought that this theme fit perfectly.
It’s getting cold here in KC, I miss the 80 degree weather in So Cal in November. However, I don’t mind wearing this outfit here in the cold. This sweater is comfy and totally fits my growing belly. Also, these flat booties are a must because I know I can’t walk around in heels for that long. I don’t like feeling like an eggroll, so the looser the clothes the better. Just like Monday, I wore this dress I bought a month ago and to my dismay it didn’t fit anymore. I literally felt like I was suffocating! I felt so tight and uncomfortable the whole day at work. I couldn’t wait to get home and change to my husbands big shirt and sweats. It’s time to buy more maternity clothes! I now prefer to wear dresses that are stretchy so that I don’t feel like an eggroll.
