Baby Style//Chambray & Shorties

Instagram shops are popping up all over the place. 
I totally love any reason to shop small...
but I especially love doing trades!
I was able to do a custom illustration in exchange for some incredibly made
baby shorties and leggings from the shop Belle's Whimsies on Instagram.
Her work is absolutely incredible. The fabric is so soft and cozy and the sewing quality is FAB!
So go follow her shop!
We got to wear the darling shorts in our Mother's Day shoot...
too dang cute!

DIY ART FOR YOUR APARTMENT
By Bryn Huntpalmer

The difference between a living space, and a home, often hinges on what you can do to add an element of your own personality to a space. DIY art projects can range from the practical, such as building a new table, to the aesthetic, including creating new focal points in a room. With a little bit of effort, you can put your own stamp on your apartment without using too much money to do the job.

WOODEN COFFEE TABLE WITH INDUSTRIAL PIPES// 

This is a different take on the coffee table, using roughly cut wood and industrial pipes to create a rustic look. It also has the advantage that nothing needs to be nailed, tacked or glued together, and the industrial pipes create a very strong base for the table. This coffee table is an instant conversation piece, and you can readily size it to whatever the space constraints of your apartment might be.

REPURPOSE OLD ART AND MEDIA FOR A COLLAGE//

Lots of homes have art pieces scattered about, but how many truly tell the story of the occupants? A collage can be quickly assembled from old newspaper clippings and other media items to represent a story in a different fashion than the standard collection of wedding or graduation photos. Every member of a household can create a personalized collage, allowing each person to share their own story. These pieces are a great way to find out which guests are paying attention and which ones are just passing through.

PUT UP A BRICK VENEER//

Nothing breaks up a space more than a contrasting color and texture on an inside wall. Brick walls always look great, and they instantly make a room a feel warmer and more like part of a home. The look of brick can be tailored quickly to create a retro feeling, something more industrial or even a rustic aesthetic.

Since you probably won’t be able to gain permission to make major changes to the appearance of an apartment, you can use removable wallpaper to accomplish the same look.

FIND A FOCAL POINT//

Why draw the line at adding art projects to an apartment when you can treat an entire room as an art project? Interior design is a great way to present your apartment as your own personal haven, and the first step in creating a more artistic presentation of a space is to establish a defined focal point. The room’s focal point can be any number of things. For example, a large mirror that you DIY to make it look more substantial can be used to define a specific region of the room as a focal point.

SUMMER SUNDAY BEST!

 Here's just a quick post to let you all know I'm still alive. 
;)
I wore this quilted crop top a while ago over a jumper. 
You can see it in this post.
I put in on this morning expecting to wear it under this tank maxi dress, 
But I liked it way better just on top!

And take note of my beautifully freshly died hair. My amazing friend did it. 
So if you are in Utah, send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up with her talent!





last but not least....an awkward picture. you always have to see these.
sunglasses+crop top//target
maxi dress//kohls
necklace//american eagle
midi rings// h&m

Because most of these items are old and no longer available,
I created a set for you with similar items.
summer dress similar styles




Here's to a happy week!
