New Body New Clothes Thrift Haul

I spent $54 in this month's thrift haul but it was worth it. Summer is coming and I need so many things. Since I've reduced, a sizable portion of my clothes no longer fit. This haul is all about comfort and basics. I'm really feeling uncomplicated - no fuss - easy on easy off clothes for summer. Georgia is about to get hot.

Family Fun, Food, and Fashion: 10 To See & Do In St. Louis

This is the last week of school for Violet so I'm in planning mode for our summer family adventure. I would love for us to take a road trip and explore St. Louis. I want a trip that we can all enjoy with activities for Violet and maybe squeeze in some me time too. After all, I made it through kindergartener drama and homework too!

Dress to Skirt Set DIY

Did you buy an ugly dress at the thrift store? Think it needs a little tweaking? I was able to turn a dated floral print dress into a modern two piece skirt set. No sewing required.

I bought this thrift store dress originally because I liked the the nipped waist and back buttons. I wasn't really a fan of the print though. The length wasn't flattering either. I normally just wear it around the house. I decided to give the dress a quick refashion to see if breaking up the print will make it look less dated.
