Hi everyone We are busy over here enjoying spring break. We have been going on adventures and enjoying our special guests. It’s been a magical week and I’m excited it gets to end with Easter. Another thing that has happened this week is the beginning of Project Run and Play All Stars! The voting is now open, so check it out if you can and vote for your favorite.
This week’s theme was inspired by art. I chose Claude Monet’s paintings to draw inspiration from. I love flowers and am naturally attracted to his beautiful paintings of flowers and nature.
I wanted to make some flower pants because it works with the theme and I love them! It’s so fun seeing everyone wearing printed pants now.
I also took my love of Anthropologie to add to the design. Simple yet bold. I would wear this outfit. Yes I would
It was my first time making zipper front pants and I must say I’m pretty proud that I made it happen. I just used a pair of my daughters pants to figure it out. I learned a lot from trying something new. That’s a good thing!
I found the flower print from Walmart for $2 a yard. I wanted something that was Liberty of London-esque (it’s a fabric design company that creates pretty florals, etc.) and I couldn’t find any at Hobby Lobby or Hancock’s in our area. So I saw this and grabbed it. Bright, colorful, super soft (after washing ;), and a good price. Can’t beat that.
The top was simple with some vintage lace and a flutter bow. I left some raw edges, because well, I like that kind of stuff. I appreciate the added texture. Then we went to a local lake for the pictures. It was perfect. It captures miss J so perfectly. She just loves exploring and playing outside. I think I need to take pics of both the girls here.
Hope you are enjoying your week! Don’t forget to vote for your fave over at Project Run and Play if you can. The designs are just so amazing! It’s a talented group of women for sure!
