Inspiration Sunday: Look to the Highest

A Very Birdcage Wedding

For some reason I decided I didn't want to wear a veil at my wedding. I always assumed I would just wear my hair down in curls, possibly with a very pretty headband. But then I became obsessed with birdcage wedding veils. I just think that they are so cute and unique. I still get the veil effect, but with some sassiness!





I am really in love with fit and flare gowns, but I did try on a BEAUTIFUL ball gown that I'm trying to decide if I could pull off the birdcage with. Would you wear a birdcage veil for your wedding and what style dress would you wear it with?

Sewing Projects

This past weekend I made my little brother a fleece blanket and my little sister a cute tote. Thankfully they were pretty quick to complete-it took me about 90 minutes on Saturday night before I went to bed. I'm getting the hang of sewing straight lines!!

July Wish List

July Wishlist


Sew Much Fun!!

Fourth of July was really uneventful for me in the sense that I did not partake in any of the festivities…I know…I was a lame this year. Instead, I ordered a sewing machine, the Brother CS6000i that I happen to ADORE! I went to Joann Fabrics (a tad bit obsessive!!) because I decided I’d start with baby washcloths, burp cloths, and blankets. Easy projects that would help me practice sewing in a straight line and rounding corners. Something I really need to learn if I’m planning on making some skirts soon! I’m also learning to crochet! I took the 8th off thinking I’d get a little bit more rest (I need it with grad school, wedding planning and work, I’m burned out), but I ended up running around doing wedding stuff. I picked out the lighting for the reception, the paper for our invitations, and we met with another photographer, I went to bed at midnight I think. An eventful day. What do you think of my first package? This weekend I’ll be working on blankets for my baby brother!

Pretty + Patriotic

4th of July is here!! That means it's time to pull out our patriotic red, white, and blue and celebrate the independence of this great nation. Now, I like to do things a little differently - be a little adventurous and fashionably chic at the same time. And it is possible to be creative and cute in patriotic clothes! This is definitely something I would wear to a bbq with friends or 4th of July day party!
