Oh, hello again!
It’s going to be a little twist here on #helloblackbird in that we’re going to be featuring a BOY today!
Well, at the time this was taken, he wasn’t born yet, but we all were boy-oh-boy excited 🙂
So… if you didn’t gather in the last few sentences, I had the lovely privilege of attending a baby shower, and we all know how I can be a liiiiiiiitttle behind regarding the time frame between taking photos and posting them here!
<cough> He is born and thriving and handsome! </cough>
Nevertheless, here is a brief snapshot of my OOTD, with a cameo from a magical unicorn from that one movie. The one that was really funny. And cute.
The statement necklace is from Windsor, and the classic navy shade has brought a lot of attention from passerby when I wear it! I love how it’s large and in charge, but at the same time doesn’t have to be bright neon or crazy huge to declare its presence. (Not that I don’t like those pieces. It just worked out this way for this outfit!)
The top is from Target, and I LOVE the cat print on this knit piece. It’s quirky and fun, and oh so comfortable! If you know me, you know that’s how I roll 🙂
Nevertheless, I need to make some space in my closet so I’m actually selling it on one of my favorite sites to browse, Threadflip.com! Stop by if you want to take a peek!
Loving these navy shorts from Francesca’s! That store is pretty much my dream store. If I could create a boutique, I feel like I would just copy/paste that beautiful place with all the clever accessories and nicknacks over to my site, heh. Don’t you love the lace detailing on the pockets? I know that it’s pretty simple to add on yourself, so I could have just done it to a pair I owned, but nobody’s got time for that! That being going to the fabric store to pick out the specific lace, sewing, and figuring out how to use the rest of the lace.
And from here on out are a few photos I took from that special event! The ladies who made and put up this decor are quite talented, I must say (and I’m sure you’d agree!). Prepare yourself for some heartmelting content below.
You have been warned.
GAH. SO CUTE.
MUSTACHE straws?? Simple DIY with such massive changes in aesthetic!
Plasticware cinched in to create a bow-tie effect. I love.
The whole array 🙂
No truer statement.
Well, that’s not true, but it’s pretty up there.
Say it with me: D’awwwww!
One of the activities we had was decorating stick-on bow ties/neck ties so that when he reaches that length of life (one month, two months, three months, etc), it’s easy to snap a photo and know exactly how old he is!
The photobooth that was so meticulously set up by an amazing woman I am blessed to know.
Manly munchies on the table!
The program that “tied” (hehe, get it? :D) the whole thing together.
I hope you enjoyed this edition, and have a lovely day!
It’s a Monday and…
I have a confession to make.
My nails don’t appreciate it very much when I constantly put on polish. There, I said it! Sometimes it feels like they’re restricted and can’t breathe, which is probably a sign that it’s no bueno to do it all the time.
And this week, I decided to take a break! And post some lovely inspiration from Pinterest to spread the creativity!
So here we go! (credit/links to the site found by clicking the reference image)
1.) “Owl always love you”
I always love me some sparkle, and to combine it with some forest love – well, that is some mighty cute happenings!
2.) “One in a Minion.”
You can’t possibly say no to these nails, especially not after watching Despicable Me 2! ❤
3.) “Oldy but goldy”
This is similar to my first #MANICureMondays, but the slim line, rather than the complete tip, caught my eye. The accent nail is lovely!
4.) “Patterns, Patterns, Everywhere!”
If only I had a steadier hand… but I can appreciate it!
I hope you had a lovely day, and have a great week!
