What to Wear

Dottie Denim

I realized the other day I had to start limiting the amount of denim and dots I could add to my wardrobe or else I wouldn’t have anything else to wear. Here are some of my favorite pieces. A. Polka Pants B. Chambray Shirt C. Dottie Backpack (I’m wearing the shirt in this post.)

What to Wear: Fancy Birthday Party

by Amanda Jane Jones

As the season gets warmer, it seems my wardrobe gets brighter and brighter. So, it only made sense that this week’s What to Wear included some neon hues. Below are some ideas for what to wear and what to give for a “fancy” birthday party.

I think this peter pan collar necklace just went straight to the top of my wish list. And as for the ombre dress? I could certainly never afford it, but wouldn’t it make for a fun DIY project!?

What to Wear: Baby Shower

by Amanda Jane Jones

Baby showers are so much fun. Cute little shoes, little jammies, little hats…everything itty bitty! I’ve been to enough of them to recognize some favorites among expecting mothers…books, wooden toys and (of course) the practical essentials. Any other favorites? All suggestions are most welcome!

Below are some ideas for what to wear and what to give at a baby shower:

What to Wear: Casual Date

I love wearing dresses when we go out but more often than not I don’t have a lot of time to get ready so I end up just modifying what I wore during the day. In this case I switched out a cardigan I was wearing for this green blazer I got at the thrift store (I love the color) and threw on some heels. I also had my friend Rubi put up my hair in a crown braid (see her awesome video and tutorial here.) Paul and I try to go out once a week. It is totally a pain to find a sitter but it’s so worth it. ps: I loved Joanna’s trick for meeting her husband for a date.
