Couple Things…

We’ve had a hectic week this week (I’m back to work part-time and we’re getting used to a new schedule!) so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with not too many plans other than a mommy/daughter shopping trip Sunday while my husband golfs…can’t wait!

I thought I’d dedicate today’s “couple things” post to New York Fashion Week.  I tell ya, I can’t wait for Spring, 2013 with all the colors and patterns that will be out!

Backstage at Nanette Lepore’s show.

New York Fashion Week according to Fern Mallis, the woman who started it all.

Here’s a great recap of all of the shows with reviews and slideshows.

And one last favorite to share from Milly, whose Spring, 2013 collection is quoted as being “futuristic” and “sexy” – 2 words never used to describe her clothes before…  Here’s the entire line, but I love this dress in particular…

Have a great weekend!

Monday Outfit

It’s feeling very fall-like today!  I am wearing a “crossover” outfit (summer to fall) including my indigo jeans, black peplum t-shirt, and woven ASOS flats.  All with a fun necklace and nude polish.  Have a great week!

Couple Things…

 What are you up to this weekend?  I am so excited for a Girls Night Out I have planned for tonight with my college friends…don’t wait up!

We’re leaving husbands, kids, and babies at home and spending the night in Newport for some fun – if the weather stays warm, I think I’ll wear one last summery outfit for an evening on the town…

Girls Night Out

Have a great weekend…here are a few things I found on the web this week:

Lanvin created a fun, colorful box for Laduree macaroons.

I don’t want to get political, but did you see Michelle Obama’s nails the other night?

Baby sushi Halloween costume!

I saw this bumper sticker on a car the other day…can’t wait for season 3!

NYFW starts today – more on that next week!


Peter Pan Collar Iron On

I mentioned last week that I was going to make iron-on Peter Pan Collar shirts – well, I made the one for our baby girl and it came out SO cute!  I saw in my September issue of Martha Stewart Living that she has great download-able patterns to print and make your own tees (and bags and jewelry as well), including one for a Peter Pan Collar shirt.  It was such an easy, fun project – here is where you can print the clip art to make your own.

I used this iron transfer paper that I bought at Michael’s and then a long sleeve white tee for our baby’s shirt.  I followed the directions for the paper and voila – done!  Once the pattern was ironed on, I thought something was missing so I added little buttons for a pop of color and 3D effect.  It came out great…

Here’s a close-up of one of the buttons.

And what it looked like pre-button.

Note: I was going to make one for myself too, but I ordered the t-shirts online and when mine arrived it had a little stain, boo, project delayed.

Monday Outfit

Happy Labor Day!  I am wearing all black today in mourning of the end of summer – I know technically we have a few weeks until the calendar says summer is over, but we all  know Labor Day is really it.

I am wearing my favorite old J.Crew shorts with a black tank, similar to the ones below.  I’m still summery with my Essie “Clambake” nails though, don’t worry…

Have a great week!
