A New Spring Tee

Good Morning!  It is so cold here today that I had to take all my pictures inside.  I prefer to take them outside, but I am not a cold weather girl!  Today I want to share a new spring tee that I found that you can start wearing now.  It has cute flowery vines all over it and because of the colors in it, you can wear it with lots of things.  Best of all it if 40% off today!  You can find the tee here.  In all of the outfits today, all I did was change to a different sweater or jacket.

The first outfit I used my beloved sweater that I featured a few weeks ago.  You can find that post here.  It is a little pricey, but it is so versatile! You can find it here.  The earrings are on sale through the end of the month,  so you still have a few days to get them for $18.00!  You can find them here.

 I kept the base outfit the same and paired it with a darker colored denim jacket and it is so cute together!  You can find a similar necklace here, and the jeans here (the jeans are on sale for $39.50!).

Here is the tee paired with a light wash denim jacket and it looks great too!  You can find a similar pair of the converse tennis shoes here and the light wash jacket here.

I paired the tee with a burgundy sweater and it looks great because of the colors of flowers in it.  You can find a similar long cardigan here.

That's if for today, so have a great day and I'll be back next week!

Spring Shoe Picks

This week I spent some time browsing through the Nordstrom website to get a feel for the new shoes that are out for spring.  Shopping for shoes online can be really tricky, so most of the time I order shoes from Nordstrom's.  They have free shipping/returns, so you can order multiple sizes and then send the ones that didn't work out back.  The first trend I noticed were platform tennis shoes.

 I have one pair of Shoreline Converse tennis shoes and I love them!  I think these Platform Converse tennis shoes are so on trend and will be comfortable at the same time.  You can find the Shoreline Converse here, and the Platform Converse here.

I found these Sam Edelman Platform tennis shoes and I think they look dressy even though they are calling them a tennis shoe.  The blush gold color combined with the jute covered platform just looks so classy!  You can find them here.

Everything leopard was a hot item this fall/winter and it looks to be the same way for spring.  I love this updated version of a loafer with a pointed toe.  They are the Steven Madden brand and are very comfortable!  They would work for casual/business casual outfits.  You can find them here.

Because platform shoes are on trend this year as well as sequins on everything, I thought this would be a great pair of shoes that could be worn casual or dressy.  You can find them here.

This is a pair of flat slides that were very popular last summer and I don't see that changing for this year.  I have several pairs of Sam Edelman slides in different styles and they are comfortable and will last several summers.  You can find this pair here.

That's it for this week!  Have a great week and I'll be back next Tuesday!

Good Morning!

Good Morning!  It is a gray, cloudy day here, so I am counting the days until spring!  Last week I gave some suggestions for a few things that would be great to have for spring and I decided to order a few of them.  Here are the sandals that I featured last week in the color Dusty Mink.  They have a low wedge which I liked and the color would go with everything.  I ordered these in my regular size, but I would recommend sizing up 1/2 size as they feel a little tight!

Here is the same pair in the color Metal Silver and I would say the same thing, size up 1/2 size.  You can find these sandals here.

 I also ordered the blue tee that I featured last week.  I thought it would be a bright blue color, but as you can see in my picture, it is actually a blue grey color.  It should be no surprise that I am wearing it with my favorite cardigan!

Last week I noticed that this wand (L'ange Curling Wand) was on sale and I have been interested in trying one out, so I ordered it.

I am sad to say, it did not work for me!  I kept burning my fingers and it never really got hot enough
 to curl my hair, so back it will go!

On the stitching side of things, my FB group has been working on this cute sewing kit pattern I gave them and there have been some really nice kits made!  If you would like to join the group and be encouraged to stitch daily, here is the link to my group.

 This week, I recorded my first video and posted it to the group mentioned above.  I love to make my stitches as even as possible and so I designed these templates to help with that.  This video demonstrates how to use one of the templates to make a feather stitch even in a short amount of time.
If you are interesting in purchasing a set, you can find them here.

Have a great day and I'll be back next Tuesday!
