What I Wore // Arendelle




Outfit Details:

Floral embroidered yoke dress // eShakti (no longer available)
Late Night Glitter heels // Seychelles Footwear
Felt bow // DIY
Glasses // eBay
Lipstick // MAC MAC Red

I know that, for most people, Frozen is officially played out. The phrase "let it go" will never be the same again, and gone are the days when you could ask someone to join you in building a snowman without feeling like you have to sing the question. But regardless, I'm still a huge fan of the film, and I definitely bought this dress because it reminded me of Anna and Elsa.


Fashion-speaking, I think I'd fit right in in Arendelle, but like Anna, I don't do cold, and I'd probably stay indoors next to a fireplace as much as possible. Hans can join me if he wants to. Just saying.

Digital Dress-Up // Hair Snoods


1 // 2 // 3* // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

I've been really into the retro/pin-up style lately (even more so than usual), so putting this little number together was right up my alley. It's no secret that I love a good hair scarf, but recently, I've been crushing on vintage-inspired hair snoods, too. And because of that, I just couldn't resist styling up an outfit that featured one. I'll probably have to add a few to my hair accessory collection some time in the near future.

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

Weekend Round-Up

- If you're into cosplaying Louise Belcher from Bob's Burgers, you must check out this hat!

- Thanks for the recent round-up of vintage hair tutorials, Buzzfeed!

- I'm constantly giggling at and relating to Sarah Andersen's adorable comics.

- I'm currently crushing on this dress from eShakti.

- I recently ordered a twist scarf from ban.do, and I absolutely love it.

Happy weekend, friends!

The Little Ones // September 2014


Emeline

Aliases:
Em, Emelina, Emma-goose, Goose

Likes:
Wearing scarves "like Mommy", her short hair, ballet class, glitter play-dough, Disney princesses, Queen Elsa of Arendelle, chocolate milk, Hot Wheels cars, high heels, collecting rocks, playing outside, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, painting her nails, and Netflix.

Dislikes:
Dessert-less dinners, chores/cleaning up her toys, sleeping in, not getting her way, shampooing her hair, change, trying new foods, and vegetables.

Things she says:
- "No way."
- "You won't believe this."
- "Mom, I'm so sorry, but I can't [insert thing I told her to do that she "can't" do here]."
- "That's (so) fair." (Uses "fair" as slang for "cool". Not sure where this came from.)
- "When I'm grown up, I can do that." (She can't wait drink Coke when she grows up.)


Odette

Aliases:
Detta-boo, Pea, Little Pea, 'Dette, Detta-pie

Likes:
Barney the Dinosaur, tomatoes, ballet class, Minnie Mouse, playing dress-up, riding her bike, swinging on the playground, snack time, painting her nails, setting the table for dinner, her blankets, rubbing the tags of her blankets across her lips, and sweet tea (on occasion, of course!).

Dislikes:
Being told "no", taking naps in her regular clothes, getting water in her eyes, when it's Emeline's turn to push the garage door button, cleaning up, having to stop what she's doing to go to the bathroom, and having to surrender her blankets to Mommy so they can be washed.

Things she says:
- "No, I do it." (She's one independent little gal.)
- "Mommy, look!" (This is sometimes followed by a potentially dangerous trick.)
- "MOMMY!" (A very endearing sound, followed by a big hug.)

What I Wore // T-strap Fever




Outfit Details:

Cat dress // borrowed from Elena
Cat striped t-shirt // Topshop
Dynamic Debut Heel in Noir // ModCloth
Red bow // DIY
Lipstick // MAC Russian Red

Several months ago, I was given some t-strap heels from a friend at church who didn't wear them anymore, and I ended up loving them so much that I began wearing them pretty often. Unfortunately, after a couple of months of this, the tip of the shoe tore away from the sole and were unable to be repaired. So, with some of the birthday money I got this year, I bought this pair of t-straps, and I absolutely love them. I was worried the heel would be a little too high for my liking, but they've really been very comfortable and not too high at all. Plus, the little tear-drop details are just darling! You'll be seeing these a lot. They're just that good.
