I wasn’t convinced about this top until I styled it with these jeans. The print is hard to see, but it’s a purple, neon orange, and pink Ikat print. Then I wasn’t sure which shoes I liked better…purple seemed too matchy-matchy, but then I do like the look of the flats with the look.
All week I struggled with posing for photos and who knew all I had to do was to have my 3 year old take the pictures? His photos are so much more artistic! And here is yet another errands outfit.
I am getting excited for what I call 'belt season' which starts in a few weeks. All of the school shopping, family photos and fall wardrobe shopping starts soon and belts complete the outfits. I love picking out new patterns and styles of girls belts and hopefully will have a few new tie fabrics coming too.
This week we have a new Magenta Skinny Belt. This is available in sizes newborn-4t. $17.
I saw this mirror at Ikea about 2 years ago and have been pining for it ever since. I’m a sucker for an ornate frame, especially in a modern color.
When I found this gem garage saling a few months ago, I about fell over. Who gets rid of something like that??!?? Especially for $3. I probably could have even talked them down. Instead I forked over my three bucks and made a beeline for the car before they could change their minds. Pretty close to IKEA wouldn’t you say??
Once I got it home, one thing had to change. I’m all for ornate and I’m even all for gold, but not together- not my style.
So half a can of spray paint later, I was in heaven. It only took me two months to decide on a color.
Ivory it is.
Big Tip: When garage saling or thrifting look for unique items home decor that have great bones. You can always modernize something with a coat of paint. I have done several gallery walls on the cheap by buying cheap, interesting frames and painting them as well.
I also found out the hard way that you MUST buy the appropriate spray paint for the surface you are painting. If it is plastic, buy the paint that adheres to plastic or it will not stick evenly on the surface.
