a couple of weekends ago, I was asked to attend the grand opening of a LOFT store. It happened to be about 3 hours from me, but was the perfect excuse to go shopping, & even better ..to see my parents [who live less than a hour from the store].
there were hor d’oeuvres, cupcakes, wine, mini makeovers, and a DJ. [oh my!]. which only heighten a girl’s shopping experience.
what I wore // jewel embellished sweatshirt / leopard denim similar / green blouse / 3.1 phillip lim x target tote.
sam of the brunette one + I.
and with our 3.1 phillip lim x target totes.
my purchase // sleeveless pleat red dress.
thanks for coming momma.
happy tuesday all.
I can not yet grasp that september is practically over. [in 3 days]. things have been busy around here. apparently too busy to look at a calendar. but I like busy. I think it suits me. I’m a better under-pressure-kind-of-gal. I have also been so kind to extend a project list [J]’s way. which has since been almost completely checked off. [I’m excited to show off his latest handy work today].
but first ..
last weekend [J] & I went back to my hometown for a friend’s wedding. I’ve always loved weddings. but they’re so much more emotional + fun now that I’m planning my own.
plus it’s always so great seeing faces you’ve missed.
my subtle reminder. it’s fall.
now [J]’s handy work ..
our yellow + grey bedroom is a work-in-progress. better it’s nothing but a couple pins on pinterest. so I’ve been anxious to turn those ideas into reality.
starting with a big, bold, statement: our headboard.
[J] completely constructed from scratch. which makes it even better, in my book.
he hand covered the buttons I HAD to have.
that’s the motivation I need to complete our room.
on the off chance you’ll be near cedar rapids, IA tomorrow, I’ll be at the ..
come join me!!
hope to see you there!
happy weekend all.
