Matilda Jane June 2017 Release

 Looks I love: Summer Style Edition

Today I’m going to talk about something I don’t often do, and that is one of my side hustles of selling boutique women and children’s clothing.

I’m never sure how much to talk about my Etsy shop, clothing sales, or other side gigs here, but I decided since this blog is all about living life colorfully, with vibrant lifestyle photography, that it’s indeed *quite* up my alley to share beautiful things I love and want to share with others.

Today, I’m sharing my own images of the latest June 2017 launch, because it is so stinkin’ adorable.

Before we start, please keep in mind you can get everything you see here, and much, much more, on my website here.

First up: the big girls’ line. It’s so pretty in my daughter’s favorite pastels: pink and purple. You might have noticed one of our sweetest new additions in yesterday’s DIY Ice Cream Stand post.

15+ Genius Ways to Use Vintage Sheets

Inspirational Ideas for Upcycling Beautiful Vintage Linens

Lately I’ve been a bit obsessed with all things vintage. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed me sharing lots of my favorite finds.

My mother is a quilter, and because of that I’ve developed an appreciation for vintage quilts, afgans, fabrics and linens. The deliciously soft texture of the worn fabric and the delightful colors and patterns just make me smile.

Since I’ve become somewhat of a minor hoarder, I’ve been doing a lot of research on how to upcycle these lovely finds. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing these ideas with you here.

Christmas Card Family pictures – what to wear

Our annual family photos are coming up quickly in just a few weeks – and I have been putting off the decision of what to wear.  I normally have a vision and this time…I just don’t.  Which is your favorite wardrobe theme?

Back to school for boys – on a budget

UPDATE: Find my updated Back to school wardrobe for boys here and here.  Since this is an older post and continues to get a lot of Pinterest traffic,  I do my best to link to similar items from this set, below. Thanks for stopping by!
Little Dub is going to be in kindergarten this year.  He’ll be going full days, every day.  I have to admit I’m a little nervous for him – it will be a huge change, but one that I think will be good for him.  He will be wearing a uniform this year which is pretty uninspiring fashion-wise, but I was pretty happy when I scored his full wardrobe during the Old Navy uniform sale for only around $110!
Even though Dub will be in uniform, I had fun laying out a back to school wardrobe for boys.  My goal was to put together a minimum of 10 outfits for $150.  I failed –  mostly because the pants alone accounted for around $60 of the budget.  However, if you chose a less expensive brand for the pants and denim this set would be much closer to $150.
Where are you finding the best wardrobe staples for boys this fall?
