And here are a couple of my other red, yellow, and blue outfits from recently!

Just Add Lace! (The Jackie Edition)

I am so glad I am finally able to do another post! I have been without a way to load pictures to my computer for a while now & we finally fixed the problem! Woo hoo!
ANYWAYS, I took some of Nikki's advice from this post & decided to do a shirt makeover. I purchased this shirt from Target for $4.98 (couldn't resist the amazing deal), but wasn't too thrilled about the front of it. It had some strips of fabric sewn to the front & I didn't really like the raw edges. So, I found some half-off trim from Hobby Lobby & went to work!

{The shirt & the not-so-lovable front.}
Nothing too special about it at first. Just a regular polka dot shirt.

So to make it a little cuter, I did this!!!

{Please ignore the awkward chest pictures. I was without a tripod or husband at the moment, so I had to take the pictures myself. I'll post some better pictures later.}

I was very pleased with the results! Lace & trim can make a huge difference. This is definitely a trick that I will be using a lot!

Summer to Fall Outfit

Remember this post by Jackie? Well, as she mentioned, Nikki and I also made these shirts. So it was more like from one shirt to six! {And I hope to make more of these shirts so it will eventually be from one shirt to six and some!} Anyway, I LOVE this shirt and I wear it all the time! We made it just as summer was ending so the first time I wore it I definitely wore it summer style. Now I have found ways to layer and make it warmer and more fall ready. Check out my different seasonal styles for the same shirt!

Nikki and I trying on our shirts for the first time!
{I am not really tan the lighting was just SUPER weird}

Summer Style:

For the summer I wore the shirt with a light yellow and 
white cardigan {Anchor Blue?}, a belt
{Charlotte Russe $2}, jeans {Target $6}, 
and cute flats {Red-Kohl's $10, Moccassins- Payless? $5?}. 
I added a cute flower from The Apple Avenue to my cardigan. 
The light colors helped to bring out the light in the shirt 
keeping everything very summer-friendly.

Fall/Winter Style: 

For the fall/winter look I changed things up just a little. 
I wore a dark cardigan {Target $5} to bring out the 
darker colors in the shirt, I wore a jacket and scarf {not pictured}, I wore a hat made 
by Nikki to keep things warm, I wore tights 
{Old Navy- $2} and flats {Target-$6ish} with the skirt {Old Navy- $5} and boots {Land's End- $40?} with the jeans {Kohl's- $15}.

Which look do you like the best? I personally love the fall/winter look just because layers are lots of fun. And so are adorable hats made by my sister-in-law! But tell me what you like!

Also, you should check out another fall outfit post on my blog!

*OLD Fashion

Because I'm too lazy to take pictures of myself
I thought I'd post something a little interesting.
At least to me it is because it's not something I think about every day!
But today I was going through pictures on my computer and
I found some old pictures of my relatives that I took from home last time I visited.
I'm sorry if this is inappropriate for this blog?
But I'm posting it anyway because we've (I) been slacking.

These first 3 pictures are two sets of my great grandparents at their weddings.
They are a little washed out I know but
I'm sure you can tell the wedding dresses are very modest and cover
And their hair pieces are VERY interesting. Especially the first one.
I wonder if those are real flowers.

This is John and Zilphia in 1913. How of a name cool is that?

This is them again with a bunch of family. Look at all those
giant dresses! I wonder what it would be like to wear those
dresses every single day for everything. And the men always wore
suits or at least dressier pants and shirts.

This is Paul and Lora around 1920

and This is Albert (John's brother) around 1913 and his wife on the right.
This isn't their wedding but
I loved this picture because of their dresses.

It's crazy how these styles were worn just 100 years ago.
and now it is sad but true a lot of people wear next to nothing!
Although those people who wear almost nothing aren't fashionable...

It's more fashionable now to be modest again
because a lot of older styles are coming back.
Let's just hope it doesn't go to the extremes of large dresses for everyday wear.

But we DO like big modest wedding dresses!

Me (Nikki) and Neal

Jackie and EB

Emma and Race

Mine looks like a night gown...I can't deny it.
but aren't Jackie's and Emma's dresses SOO amazing?
I love them.

I hope you two don't mind that I stole some pictures!
I didn't think you would.
and sorry! I just realized I used pictures where you guys are standing apart
and couldn't really see the details very well!
So I added some more!
