I'm obsessed

For this Summer I am officially obsessed with sheer tops and patterned pants. I can't seem to get enough! Luckily H&M keeps me satisfied and styled well. They can do no wrong!

The bonus of sheer tops is quite simple, they keep you cool on days when it is 94 degrees outside!Thank you fashion air conditioning!

H&M does it again!

My love for H&M has no bounds. I wore this outfit yesterday and thank god I did. The weather was scorching hot and I could already feel the heat at 6:40 in the morning. I got this lovely tunic dress at H&M over the weekend for $7. In fact I liked it so much I got another one in a different color. Thank you H&M!

Oh and did you notice my new haircut. I decided to get my hair cut shorter so my natural waves/curls could go crazy in the summer. Especially since we don't have central air and I don't want to be sweating my make up off before even leaving for work. So my hair routine can now be shaved down to a few measly minutes.

Happy Hump Day!

Tuesday Shoes-Day!

Hi, my name's Jennifer and I have a shoe addiction. While browsing the internet last week I came across this site. Ever since then my world has been turned upside down.

The first pair I'm featuring today are completely me and are everything I look for in a shoe. Which of course is bascially that "it" factor. I love when shoes are a little different and have a cool architecture about them.

The second pair of shoes are a little out of my comfort zone. I am by no means a tennis shoe girl but I feel like I could wear these with a more casual outfit and possibly treat them as a wedge bootie.

Even though I'm dying over these shoes and want them NOW I think I will wait to make sure I get some extra money before I go shoe spending. Shoes will do that to you. Make you crazy and all!

DIY - Pillowcase Dress for Toddlers

I've been wanting to do some sewing projects for a while, and after finding the materials I was able to finish a project I had pinned from a site called Prudent Baby.

I started with this - 

After 2 nights, a few modifications and a few choice expletives at times of confusion, I ended up with this -

It's a little bit messy, and I'm not yet sure if it'll stand up to the wear and tear of little M wearing it, but it's darn cute. I have quite a few more orphan pillowcases, too, so I think I will be doing some more practice and in the mean time stocking up on things she can wear to bed, which we are constantly running out of for some reason. (Laundry what?) I almost wish I could make one in my size of this, because the material is so comfortable. Now that I think of it, this pillowcase did have a matching sheet...

Freshness in a jar

With summer quickly approaching I tend to try and find ways to have lighter meals. The heavy meals of winter don't quite work for the summer so I have to find ways to change that up.

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE salad. While visiting other blogs and browsing through pinterest I noticed salads in a jar. I figured I would try it. Anything to help my lettuce last longer and to prevent my hard earned money from going down the drain.

Here are the simple easy steps:
1. Wash and dry the lettuce.
2. Once the lettuce is dry cut it up to your liking.
3. Put it in a mason jar and put the lid on it.
4. Store in the fridge (from my experience it lasts at least 2 weeks in the fridge like this)

Happy Eating!

Tuesday Shoes-Day!

Today's shoes-day is brought to you by Jens love of Zara (that is starting to rub off on me, even though I haven't bought anything from there.....yet. Jen recently took a trip and visited a Zara store and came back with these lovelies

A nice white shoe is great for summer, especially one like this. 
Even better is it has a twin in a nice neon color - 

I'm thinking of getting a pair myself, but its so hard to decide which! Though I do love the bright pair. Which pair would you choose?

Are those?..

So if you have checked out any fashion blog anywhere you have probably noticed a trend called Pajama dressing. That's what this is.

While at the thrift store this weekend I decided to try and find some pants that I could wear that were PJ'ish. Luckily in the pajama aisle (yes there is a whole aisle) I found these lovely beauties and another lime green pair. So I snatched them up and decided to see if it was a look I could pull off. I actually quite like the look and so did a few of my co-workers!

Even if they aren't the most flattering pants ever they are the most comfortable! Let us know if you try this trend!

Happy Friday!
