You guys! I loooove these Stately Type Moda shirts. Jaybird Quilts regrammed a photo of these, and I just preordered the Maker and “Do-Re-Mi” designs. If you preorder by tomorrow (the shirts will ship in late April) you can get 20% off with the code MODA20. Find the Stately Type Moda shirts here.
Last month I bought these adorable new dresses. The red dots are from ModCloth, and the apple dress and grey dress are from Boden. I wore the apples once when the weather dared to climb above 50, but the rest are squirreled away for when the weather is actually warm. When is that going to happen?! This is the longest winter of all time. I want to wear my cute dresses with cute shoes.
A few weeks ago I wrote this post for GeekMom. I’m reposting it here because today I have orientation for my new teaching job. The wardrobe is on my mind a lot.
It’s that time of year again, when back-to-school commercials take over the airwaves and summer feels like it’s slipping away. But all of the school talk is focused on getting the kids ready for a new year. What about the teachers? We like new things in our closets, too.
Here are some good things that have happened lately, to turn my birthday frown upside down.
One of the GeekMoms, Natania, got a bunch of us hooked on Ipsy. My first bag came last month, and I just got the email that my February bag is on its way. Happy dance! I loved the goodies in the first bag (that Briogeo deep conditioner was amahzing).
After our 3 days in Maine, we spent an afternoon in Portsmouth, NH before heading to Cape Cod for 2 nights.
The main reason we stopped in Portsmouth was because they had a quilt shop. And Portsmouth Fabric Company is a great quilt shop. I scored some Denyse Schmidt, Birch Fabrics, and Cloud9, as well as a great home dec weight hedgehog print from Cosmo.
Other posts on this trip: Connecticut.
Once we left Connecticut we headed back up to Portland. We just loved it so much when we were there in March, and we really wanted to go back to Duckfat.
We were there for 3 days, and we spent more time wandering around the city. East End Cupcakes was yummy.
I wrote a post for GeekMom over the weekend about the launch of Phillip Lim’s collaboration with Target. Then bright and early Sunday morning, Hannah and I ventured out to Target for the 8am opening.
There were about a dozen people in line for the opening, and by the time I got Hannah into a cart and over to the clothes women (and a few men) were just picking the racks clean of everything. But, we did manage to get some great goodies into our cart.
I haven’t ordered anything from Boden in a while, so I’m really excited for these. From top left going clockwise: Retro Pocket Dress in Sapling Sixties Floral; Casual Tunic Dress (I have 2 of these already) in Ivory Lupine; Leather T Bar Sandals in Seaspray; and Sorrento Dress in Pewter.
I am so in love with this. I bought this from Life Geekery a while back, and I’ve had it for about a month now. They’re made to order, so you do have to be patient for a few weeks until it ships. But they have some other amazing character interpretations (Dr. Who, Star Wars), not just Harry Potter. And you can order for a Kindle, iPad, Mini, etc. You do have to get used to carrying Harry upside down, the opening is at the bottom. Small price to pay for greatness.
