1. NUMBER 12

    paisleylg1

    I’ve mentioned before that I have a staggering 7 rompers (well, now 8. shhhhh) in my closet. What I didn’t include in that is that I also have 4 jumpsuits. That makes 12 adult onsies. TWELVE. 

    And of course, almost half of them are LOFT/Lou & Grey. Working there is dangerous for me. #loftgirlproblems

  2. DIY GAME BOARD BLANKET

    gameboard1

    Boo and I love going to the beach. Year round, actually. And heres the thing - as much as I love it, I get antsy sometimes. Boo naps. Like, that’s his favorite thing to do. He hits the sand and he’s out. I need to be doing something, though. I’ve tried bringing a book. But for some reason, I just can’t read on the beach. I get distracted, and still, antsy. I know, I’m weird. Isn’t that like the number one beach activity?!

    So I saw this DIY a while back for a portable checkers board made on a placemat, and I thought - why not make it on a bigger scale and put it on a blanket? That way, it’s double duty! Triple duty, actually. Its a game board, its something to sit on, and it’s something to cover up with. And while we’re at it, let’s make it double sided, too.

    I decided to go with a checkers board on one side, and a mancala board on the other. I’m not very good a checkers, by the way. But mancala? Mancala is my jam.

    The best part about it? You don’t have to carry around all the little game pieces. Just pick up shells or rocks or anything around you and use those as your game pieces.

    And it doesn’t just have to be for the beach! It would make a perfect picnic blanket. Or just for taking to the park, or your own backyard, and enjoying some fun out in the sun. 

    So, read on after the jump to see how I made it!

  5. DIY TRANSPARENT CLUTCH

    Geez, guys. I’ve been wanting one of these babies for awhile now. I actually bought some vinyl months ago. But you know, life. Better late than never, though! I’m actually thinking about doing one with white machine stitching too, for an almost completely transparent look. But for this one, I decided to start with a bolder, brighter look.  

    See how to make it after the jump, and don’t forget to check out how I styled it in yesterday’s post!

  6. HELLO LOVE

    I kinda, sorta, really loved this outfit when I was wearing it. I don’t know if it was the great fitting skirt, new comfy tee from a company I love, the fresh farmers market flowers, or the brand new DIY bag that I had just finished. Or all of the above. But I was loving it. 

    P.S - check back tomorrow for the clear PVC clutch DIY!

    P.P.S - when did my sneakers get so dirty?! I don’t remember getting them that filthy. yikes.
