I bought this dress a while back but didn’t wear it often. adding it into my challenge to make myself wear it more
👠: nude heels from Marks & Spencer (my wedding heels!) also rare opportunity to wear this yay
💼: bought this for CNY from Espirit
👑: earrings from @byinviteonlystore and bangle from my secondary school days 😅
You can never go wrong with a floral print in our books! This print perfectly compliments the #TulipDress 🖤. We love seeing how you make our patterns your own! Make sure to tag us in your pics, just like @birdy_sew_obsessed does!
Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been quite busy with my project, and I hope to get a lot more done this weekend! Hope life is treating you all well! ❤️
Preparing for some wardrobe changes with the #nyfw2019 palette and new make-up colors. Pantone named Living Coral as the 2019 color of the year so the blouse and the lipstick are in! Since still in the process of repurposing what I already own, new hangers are a better idea than a new wardrobe! Except for some colors from the palette that I won’t wear (mossy green and browns) I think I am in good shape for #springsummer2019. #capsulewardrobe 👚👗👛👠
THRIFTING • As part of aiming to live more sustainably, my rule is only to buy clothes that are thrifted, vintage or ethical. Inspired by superwoman @op_shop_to_runway, today’s haul includes some charity shop finds! 💃🏻
Happy Friday friends- I just wanted to talk about a couple of things #pregnancy related, so if you don’t feel like reading about it, feel free to stop here. .
I haven’t been shy in discussing my discomforts regarding pregnancy and as I creep closer and closer to my due date, I find myself in a perpetual state of discomfort. I’m thinking and feeling so many different things that it becomes overwhelming fairly quickly. The last few nights have not been good ones- waking up literally every single hour to use the bathroom, having first trimester sickness make a surprise reappearance and just generally feeling not great has really started to wear me down a bit. And I think there is part of me that is also mourning the life I’m losing, the fact that my husband and I will no longer be just the two of us. And I think that’s ok- I think it’s fair and valid to feel sadness despite how lucky/excited/happy we are to bring this new life into the world. I’m ready to meet our baby, and I’m more than ready to feel like myself again. I hope you’re all enjoying your Friday evening and if you made it this far, I thank you for holding space for me. Cheers 💕

About last night.... something about a Thursday night baby shower is just so chic! 🖤🖤🖤 So much fun getting in some mid-week girl-time + celebrating sweet baby girl Farr. Can’t wait to meet her!
Capsule wardrobe update (for those who have been here for a while)🤘for those new to this space, here’s a great way to get started on a capsule wardrobe;
my clothes are back in the closet. why did I take them out the simple act of being able to see everything on a wardrobe rack really helps the evaluation process of your items. I have done the hanger trick regularly (shown here) and that helps a lot also.
hanger trick in case you missed it, just turn all your hangers backwards. then when you wear something, launder and return it to your closet, turn the hanger the other way to be able to see at a glance what you do and don’t wear. then assess why you haven’t been wearing certain items and decide if they can go. enjoy! would love your thoughts below👇I have a few blog ideas in my head currently, let me know what you’d like to read about next✨
Let love grow. All patchwork designs are hand dyed recycled linen and hand stamped. I had a ton of requests for making them available for older kiddos too, so I'll be adding them to sweatshirts as well. Available Wednesday 6pm pst.
Hemos aprendido después de largas horas frente al espejo que no todos los colores nos favorecen de igual manera 🤷🏼♀️ Eso se debe a que cada una de nosotras posee su color personal, determinado por factores como color de cabello, cejas, piel y ojos 👉🏻 CONOCER TU #PALETACROMÁTICA TE AYUDARÁ A DEFINIR TU ESTILO 🎨
Estoy elaborando una completa #Guía para orientarlas a descubrir cuáles son los colores que más la favorecen, y así poder definir mejor sus propios #ArmarioCapsula. Mañana estaré subiendo un #post sobre eso! Estén atentas! 🥰📝
That end of the week excitement 🌟

This top is one of our absolute favourites! It is so easy to wear and care. I'm wearing mine now😍.
Here we have thrown it over the gingham linen vest/dress, you could also wear it under the vest.
This is what a great capsule wardrobe is all about, wearing your favourite pieces that are also adaptable and versatile 😁.
Day 23 prompt: favourites.
These are my favourite shorts. The loose-top, cinched-waist is my favourite look. I think it has a bit of a retro feel and I love that! I think the 30-50s really speak to my sense of style. Aka, #grandmastyle
I feel like I'm sharing photos of the same clothes I wear over and over again. But the fact is, I've sewn myself a capsule wardrobe and I love everything in it!! The repetition is a reflection of that. So #sorrynotsorry

It’s all on the details! This is one of my favorite spring dresses 😊
Well, we're all sorted! Two giant piles to donate or store away for the baby later on so far, hopefully more to come!
“In short, if you can handle it, the Bluffworks Departure jeans can handle it as well – while keeping you insanely comfortable."
Young girls should have long hair...
Welllll. I knew walking into a visit with my grandma I’d get polite disapproval of this hairstyle. I haven’t had it this short since I was 20. And fresh off the nursing school weight gain extravaganza. While I got lots of compliments on my pixie style ways I felt totally exposed. I thought my face looked to round- blah blah blah. Now I look back and I’m like- you dork- you were a little cutie. Shut up. But I gotta say I do love feeling strong and confident. So like I said to the 3 year old yesterday who said she didn’t like my haircut- “you’re a meanie and should talk to your mom about peoples feelings, but whatever- I love it anyway!”

This silky go to number coming to the journal/vlog next week my loves!
The ultimate staple piece that can easily be dressed up or worn casually #essentialsclub 💕
This is my no more picture. 〰️ no more negative self talk 〰️ no more comparison 〰️ no more "you’re not enough"
Because you are enough, just as YOU are. You do not need to change ANYTHING about yourself to be good enough. You were wonderfully created with talents unique only to you, with a voice to speak what others cannot.
I’ll be the first to admit I am not good at self-love. I’ll encourage someone all day long but when it comes to myself, eh not so much.
So here’s to a little #youareenoughchallenge for myself (I hope you’ll join too). When I begin to think negatively about myself I am going STOP and write down or say something kind to myself. Starting NOW and through next week, no more negative self talk.
Hey friends! It's been a while since I've done a try-on session (capsule wardrobe life!) but I recently picked up a few key pieces to transition my wardrobe to Spring (yea Spring!) that I'm sharing in my stories. All of these pieces are currently on sale, work for various seasons and can be mixed and matched easily with your current capsule. For us, a capsule wardrobe has worked wonders! It's been such a help for me for various reasons, such as keeping me from overspending, allowing me to buy quality (as much as I can), buying less, being environmentally friendly, creating outfits easily, and reducing my stress! I don't feel this method is necessarily right for everyone (and you do you!) but if you're contemplating trying it, I have 3 part series on my blog guiding you through the process as well as saved stories in my highlights under "capsule". Also, debating on sharing my tips with you for how we keep the kiddos capsule wardrobes as well...is that something you'd want to see! Lemme know! 👇👍
