Last week I might have gotten sucked into Fab and bought myself a few little things. I've been wanting one of these Hello Apparel sweatshirts for a while now finally grabbed one when I saw there were some available on Fab. I kind of want to grab one in every color now...but I'll hold off at least until the weather starts to cool down again. The sweatshirt runs a little on the shorter side, at least for me. I have a long-ish torso and a preference for longer tops. So I decided to see what it would look like tucked into a skirt. I love it! I'm really happy to have stepped out of my comfort zone to find that wearing a sweatshirt doesn't necessarily mean you have to look like you spent the day lounging on the couch. (Here are two more sweatshirt outfits from the recent past that I'm still loving!)

I also finally bought a wearable planter, I've been wanting one for so long. I love the idea of sticking little flowers I find throughout my day in it or matching the flowers to my outfit.  I was originally a little hesitant to purchase when I read they had magnet backs instead of a pin since I have a history of losing brooches. When it arrived I was kind of shocked how strong of a magnet it has on the back, I don't think it'll be an issue at all. On Wearable Planter's blog they have a little step by step guide of how they dye their planters. I love seeing how things are made, even just a little peek into the process like that is so neat. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this baby this summer! (This one is next on my want list, love that shape!)

Happy Tuesday!
xoxo

  2. You know, I'm pretty sure the very definition of "disrespectful" would be your 9th photo. Seriously, taking a photo like that in a cemetery is really not classy at all. A cemetery is much more than a cool backdrop for your photos. Time to pack up the camera and go somewhere else for your what-I-wore shots.

    1. Normally comments like this left by people who can't even stand by their opinions immediately get deleted because I don't have time for that kind of bullcrap but the fact that you're looking at a pair of legs and sexualizing them is absolutely disgusting. They're just legs. Oh my goodness, you can see some thigh, please cover the children's eyes. The photo is simply showing you socks and shoes. If you see something else or feel something else that is your problem, not mine.

      I think it's time for you to pack up your crappy up tight attitude and head somewhere else. :)

    1. I wish it was like this naturally! My hair doesn't hold a curl for very long at all. My hair is naturally pin straight.

  9. Love the hello sweatshirt! I really like the less casual looking sweatshirts that are popping up.

    Is the wearable planter heavy?

  17. Funny, I found the hello sweatshirts to run really long! I got a size large adult though, and probably could have worn a size medium. It looks adorable tucked into the skirt! I'll have to put this idea in my back pocket for the six months of winter we get. ;)
