Spring Old Navy Picks

Old Navy has been having a ton of great sales recently! So when I saw their 40% with free shipping offer a couple of weeks ago, I took advantage and ordered some things for Brynlee.

Old NavySalePicks

1. This tutu dress is so fun! It’s super comfortable and Brynlee has deemed it her princess dress!

2. I love this little floral dress, it’s only $8 right now and is perfect for when Brynlee needs to be a little dressier, like a birthday party or when we go out to dinner.

3. The perfect, casual summer dress, I ordered it in two colors! It’s super comfy and perfect for school, the park or even to thrown on over her swimsuit after a day at the pool or splash pad.

4. These shorts are currently on sale for $6! And the floral print is super fun!

5. I have Brynlee wear these shorts under her dresses, they are light weight and allow her to still be her active/rambunctious self while still keeping her modest.

6. This swimsuit is so adorable!! I love the print and it has a cutout on the back that is perfection! Between pool days, going to the splash pad and swim lessons, we get a lot of use out of our swim wear and this one is less than $10!

7. I was planning on getting Brynlee a pair of Native’s this summer, but when I saw these for less than half the price I had to try them out! Plus the heart cutouts are the cutest! Brynlee has already gotten a ton of wear out of them. They are easy for her to slip on and have great traction for when we are at the pool or the splash pad so she doesn’t slip and fall.

8. I used to love Jellies as a kid, so when I saw these I had to get them for Brynlee. They are super similar to these mini melissa shoes for a fraction of the price. And Brynlee calls them her jelly bean shoes, which is pretty much the cutest thing ever!

Happy Shopping!

The Grace Dress

shoes (old from H&M, similar pair here)

Brynlee had her Spring picture day a few weeks ago, so I decided to make her a dress that could double as her Easter Dress. And with Easter just a few short weeks away, I thought now would be the perfect time to share it.

Violette Field Threads is one of my favorite pattern makers for girls, I have almost all of their patterns at this point and am slowly making my way through all of them. They recently came out with a stuffed doll line that I am dying to make, I think they would make the perfect gift, especially with all the outfits you can make to go with them!

For Brynlee’s Easter dress, I knew I wanted to make the Grace Dress. I love the scalloped edge option and thought it was the perfect feminine detail for Easter. The floral fabric I used to make it is from Hobby Lobby, it has sparkly gold accents that I love! To dress it up a bit for Easter, I decided to make the bottom of the dress from tulle, I used 4 layers of aqua tulle and one layer of aqua cotton for the lining.  It is perfectly puffy and makes a great twirling skirt, which Brynlee has absolutely taken advantage of!

This dress is a pretty quick and easy sew, just go slowly over the scallops to make sure they turn out perfect.

Happy Sewing!

Spring Refresh

Spring is on the horizon, well actually, here it is pretty much in full swing and we are loving every minute of this beautiful weather. With the changing of the seasons, it got me thinking about giving a little update to our most used room in our house, the living room. We spend about 75% of our time as a family in our living room right now and I am ready to lighten things up a bit.

For spring I like to stick to lighter neutrals with lots of texture and a few pops color to brighten things up.

Sofa – The sofa is a staple in any living room and this sofa has slip covers that are machine washable! As a mom of two kids, I would love to have the option to wash them whenever sticky hands or a spill occurs. Check out Arhaus’ Living Room page for more colors and some non-slip cover options.

 Ottoman – We have an ottoman very similar to this, it is easy to clean and perfect for corralling/ hiding toys. Plus the padding is very beneficial when you have a new walker in the midst.

 Rug – I love this light grey rug, make it extra plush by adding a rug pad underneath.

 Cream Floral Pillow / Watercolor Pillow / Basketweave Pillow–  I love utilizing throw pillows to add texture and extra color because you have so many different options and no matter what you choose, its never overwhelming since they are on a smaller scale, so have fun with it!

Brass Picture Frame – Spring is a great time to update your pictures, these brass picture frames are my current favorite.

Table Lamp– With the days starting to get longer also consider updating your lighting. I love this gold table lamp that would create a little more ambiance in the evenings, instead of always having overhead lighting which can sometimes be a bit harsh.

Tray – A must have with a padded “coffee table” to hold my mug full of cold coffee…

 Gold Pineapple Candle –  Also perfect to set on the tray, a spring scented candle. My favorite (and what is currently burning right now) is Violet and Freesia, but I also love Lavender for spring.

Throw Blanket– Even though the days are warming up, nights can still be a bit chilly so a lightweight throw is perfect for cuddling up in on those crisp evenings. I especially love the ruffling on this one.

What are some of your favorite ways to update your home for Spring?
