Remember this maxi skirt that I made and loved? Well, no longer a maxi. Whoops! I thought I pre-washed this fabric when I first got it. Nope, based on the shrinkage, I guess I didn’t. Sad day. But I learned my lesson. I think I might try to make it a hi-low skirt instead. It’s a little stumpifying at this length.
I’m looking forward to getting settled into our new place. I’ve got a whole room for crafts and clothes! I have a bunch of clothes that I’m excited to make…patterns and fabrics are taunting me. I’m addicted.
Congratulations to Marie R.! You’ve won the clutch and scarf giveaway. Please email me at ohshedabbles at gmail dot com to claim your prize!
After seeing this dress first in Target and then on Megan a few times, I knew I needed to try it on. And when I tried it on, I didn’t want to take it off! It seriously feels like pajamas and yet I got plenty of compliments on it. As a shorter person, sometimes maxi dresses make me feel stumpy, so this was the perfect compromise. And a nice change of pace from the scrubby moving and painting clothes I’m otherwise confined to right now.
Don’t forget, today is the very last day to enter the burlap envelope clutch and Liberty of London circle scarf giveaway (more details here)!
Time for some “before” pictures, my friends! Allow me to introduce the new Dabbles household:
Living room looking towards dining room and stairs
The husband’s office
We are in love with our new home!! It’s a block from the ocean and we can walk to restaurants and coffee shops and parks…all things that we love. We spent all last weekend painting, so it already looks way different. This weekend, we start moving in furniture. I can’t wait to share after photos with you once we get settled in!
Dress: Boden (similar…even better for summer. I love both colorways!)//Belt: Boden//Bracelets: Francesca’s, vintage, T&J Designs, and mom’s jewelry box
I just adore this dress. I feel so glamorous when I wear it. The movement and flow of the fabric are so fun (exhibit A: having too much fun) and to make it feel a bit more casual for school, a bright orange belt, a messy ponytail, and stacks of bracelets were just the ticket.
Tomorrow, I’m super excited to share some “before” pictures of our new condo! We spent the weekend painting (muscles I didn’t know I had are sore) and next weekend we move all of our stuff in! We are so happy with the place and can’t wait to make it our own, but the next few weeks are going to be incredibly busy…so bear with me if posts are a little short or sporadic.
AND, only 2 more days to enter the super fun burlap envelope clutch and Liberty circle scarf giveaway!!
