I’m so in love with these dresses and accessories. Neutral colors are always beautiful…and sprucing it up with accessories is such a fun way to go! I’ve been eyeing dresses like these, waiting anxiously for end of summer sales to start. ūüôā

Kitchen Dreaming

Since we just moved, it’s hard to not pin every kitchen picture I see on Pinterest. Our old apartment had way more space (including cupboard and counter space) so I’ve been looking for ways to organize all our kitchen stuff that just doesn’t fit. For now we’re using our black Ikea 2×4 cubed bookshelf to hold pots and the appliances that take up too much counter space! It works well but doesn’t fit in with the other colors in the kitchen. It’s just til we can find a pot rack and maybe some shelves… and a small enough island or narrow enough buffet piece. Since I don’t think I ever put up pictures of our kitchen in our last apartment, here it is!

yes, you’re seeing that right… there really is a garden rake and pick-ax on top of our cabinets!

And the rest of this post contains things I’ve pinned on my “kitchenspiration’ board that I’ve been drooling over.

I’m very obsessed with coffee. We might even have space for something around this size:

Open & airy with a nice island and humongous stove! … and is that a tropical beach outside?!

 

Loving all the yellow with these shelves!

 

These bold stripes are perfect.

 

Great breakfast area with such an awesome table!

Roundup | some Blue for you

I love the color blue. It’s always been my “favorite” color even though I go through phases of pinks and different shades of blues… well, here’s one blue that always is a favorite (and even Patriotic for weekends like these!). I would love to figure out a way to incorporate indigo into my apartment!

Happy Friday and Memorial Day weekend!!

Wednesday Roundup | Easter Time!

Easter is such a fun time for crafts. There are just so many adorable ideas out there, it’s hard to decide which ones to try! Since I was home this past week, I got to dye Easter eggs with my little sister. It was a blast since neither of us have dyed eggs in years…and I don’t think an Easter is complete without a few real dyed eggs.

The only downside to the egg dyeing party was that we only had 6 eggs in the house and we couldn’t find any good rubber bands. We did the best we could, though… ūüôā

While at Wal Mart the other night, I picked up some crochet thread, water balloons, and liquid starch so I could do this fun craft I’ve been dying to try. It was much messier and more time consuming than I thought it would be, but I think the end result was worth it!

Here are some other DIY ideas to try for Easter. Hope you enjoy!
