It is the grand finale of the J.Crew fashion show! Today it’s all about the bride but we’re keeping this short.
Call me biased (because I did it), but I love a short wedding dress. I’m a leg girl, and after our dreadful winter, don’t be afraid to show them off this summer! Here are J.Crew’s collection of short bridal dresses.
What about you… Did you go short? Would you? What about shorts? I’d love to know.
Today the bridesmaids are stealing the spotlight and for good reason… I love the entire J.Crew bridesmaid line! If I had to pick, the fourth and fifth dresses are my favourites. What about you? Let me know!
I’ve been seeing a lot of indigo Shibori tie-dye this summer and it’s not a bad thing – I like blue.
See … it is everywhere
Rather than filling my wardrobe with stuff from the stores, I decided to make my own. It’s summer in Nova Scotia (#nssummer) and although tie-dying was not on my summer to-do list, it should of been!
The last time I tie-dyed was at summer camp – I think it was hippy day? Let’s say it was hippy day.
This time I didn’t dress up but I did stock up on supplies:
White tees and linens
A paper towel tube
David joined in and helped and I must say, the patterns really worked … but
… The good news is I am NOT a How To / DIY blog… so rather than telling you what I did and how I failed, you can just go to Pinterest and find patterns – like this site I used – and try it yourself.
… The better news is I took these pics right after I dyed the clothes… when I put everything in the wash, the blue ran and my whites are no longer white. Boo. I thought I followed instructions but I must of missed a step. I’d check, but I recycled the instructions and am too lazy to Google my mistake. Whatev, it was fun and the clothes still look okay. And, like I said, I got the pictures before everything turned blue (both literally and emotionally). In a world of Instagramming perfection, it’s big of me to admit the unfiltered outcome.

A perk of working from home is the freedom to watch a 24/7 live cam of the hospital door – waiting to see the first glimpse of the royal blue baby. Here’s a little thing i threw together in celebration of the third in line. -xomeg
