A Blogger Meetup

Over the weekend my husband and I took a road trip to meet this lovely lady and her boyfriend. We’ve been talking on twitter and commenting on each other’s blogs for a while now, so it was great to finally meet Laura in person! Too bad we didn’t meet until the day before she moved from Richmond. I really hope we can hang out again sometime soon 🙂

Blueprint

I wore this dress to work with a cardigan and then switched up my shoes and accessories for a sushi date with the hubs (we are slightly addicted). I’ve had this dress for over a year now and it’s so versatile. I just have to make sure I coordinate with my co-worker since she has the same dress in pink.

Dress: Target (cute option)

Necklaces: Clothes Hound and Banana Republic (similar)

Shoes: Target (similar)

Belt: Francesca’s (similar)

Clutch: Vestique (similar)

Do you have any fun weekend plans?

Wednesday’s Cravings

Here are the items I’m currently craving this week! I’m seriously obsessed with the necklace (so typical) and iPhone case. The iPhone case is so unique and I love all of the colors. What are you currently craving?

Which is your favorite?

P.S. The hubs and I are taking a trip to Chicago soon and I would love to hear any recommendations you have on restaurants and things to do!

DIY: Dip Dyed Shorts

About a week ago my sister and I decided to do our first ever DIY project. I had seen dip dyed shorts at a few places…but for $60. No thanks. So I bought a pair of capris at Marshalls for $14 and I cut them to my desired length since all the shorts I found were way too expensive and/or way too short.

*Be careful when using bleach and follow the directions on the bottle.

Step 1: You will need bleach, shorts, newspaper, and a plastic tub or bucket to pour the bleach in.

Step 2: Pour the bleach into the tub and then dip the shorts into the bleach.

Step 3: Let the shorts sit in the bleach for about 10 minutes or so. I used beach towel clips to keep the shorts secure. Then let the shorts dry on newspaper.


 

Final result:

My shorts
My sister’s shorts

What do you think of dip dyed shorts?
