wednesday's agenda

Wednesday, August 10

Skirt: c/o Ruche, Top: AE, Watch: Gift
After finally stuffing the last of my clothes into our itty-bitty closet nook yesterday {I would like the next architect of my house to be a woman please}, I finally feel settled enough to go out and bring even MORE things in for DIY parties all weekend long. Oh hip hooray. Husband is thrilled. I'm off on a morning thrift store scouting trip, with a very specific list in my pocket and paint swatches in my bag. Wish me and my sidekick, Sir Navigator luck! DC has got a lot of thrift store action people.

{and for those of you who haven't completely given up on me ... there will be some awkwards and awesomes going down tomorrow. see you then :)}

Britney said...

you are the most chic pregnant lady ever! my whole goal during my pregnancy was to only wear maternity skinny jeans, white v-necks and blazers. That carried on until the end of my second trimester and then it was sweat pants and my husband's t-shirts All. Day. EVERY. Day. you look beautiful and I love a good denim button down :).
and congrats on the move to D.C.! I'm from PA, but after graduation (I'm a BYU-I alum as well :)) we moved to Vancouver, WA. Gorgeous, but jealous I'm not in the east!

Aubsent From Texas said...

I feel your pain! I recently moved into a room with NO closet. So NOT okay. So, I bought an ikea wardrobe in shambles, on craigslist for $50. Then with the daily advice of my neighborhood hardware store and tools from the library, I rebuilt it. Viola, ginormous closet!
Good luck with the errands Mrs Cuteness!

You should do a tutorial for that cute top knot hair do you've been doing lately. It looks like it's done a bit differently than the previous bun tutorial you had? :)

Oh please share your DC thrift store finds with us. So help me, I've only been able to find the Good Will in Arlington that hasn't impressed me too much. Your discoveries would be much appreciated.

Bianca and Sarah said...

I just saw a comment on your Pinterest from my breastfeeding comment! I am totally NOT against breastfeeding. I think it's wonderful! I think it's awesome of women to cover themselves in public alone in your home whatever but that's just my opinion. I have friends who don't think that way! But I am not anti- breastfeeding. I just get so annoyed by cyberbullies jeesh!

Gertrude said...

You and your baby bump are the best! So cute :) Love how that denim shirt goes with anything xo

Esther said...

Haha. Yes. I once lived in a house that had been designed and built by three men. It was a nightmare! No linen closet or pantry space! I feel your pain.
