the week is halfway through and so far it has been the most laid back in a long time. No appointments, no places to be. We spent a ton of our time outside in the garden as it has been super warm and windy so it was awesome to be outside.
Splashing around in the water and sitting under the fruit trees is so idyllic I don´t need to be anywhere on vacation cause it feels great.
Plus wearing all the flower dresses right now is giving me major Summer vibes. I have always loved flower prints no matter the flowers or the size. The dress I am wearing above is another great amazon find I also own in two other prints as the style of the dress is amazing. Super flowy and long sleeved (which I love cause I am not a huge fan of my arms) with an interesting neckline, a great lenght and available in 20 plus different colors and prints.
I am probably going to order more in darker colors as soon as Fall comes around. Prime shipping is available and they are under 40 Euro which is a great value.
Preparing some shoots tomorrow so I can get fresh content over the weekend. Going to add a bunch of new posts in the home decor category as well as the food category soon. So stay tuned for this if you are interested.
With all the quarantine restrictions due to Covid 19 we have been facing for the last few months on a daily basis lots of people have gotten super creative in terms of renovating their homes or exploring their inner Martha Stewart and have been cooking and baking ever since. I for myself had a baby which was also time consuming so my first DIY project took me awhile.
But today I am finally sharing my DIY tie-dye shirt on my little corner on the internet. After looking at so many shirts I could never find a piece I loved and if I did it mostly was sold out or super expensive so after watching a ton of YouTube video I decided to make my own – Mommy and Me version.
How to Tie-Dye your own shirts?
So I ordered a tie-dye kit off of amazon and thought by myself how hard could it be, I mean thousands of people already done it. I was quite confident to start on the pieces (I got a pair of longsleeves and t-shirts from H&M as they also carry baby clothing) but felt a little overwhelmed after mixing the paint but I went on how I wanted to die our clothes and to be honest I think they turned out great for a first time.
The method I used for our shirts is called the crinkle method and probably the easiest of all. You just crinkle your shirts together and fixate them with a rubber band (much easier with the baby bodies as they didn´t take up to much space but my shirts, even crinkled, where quite large so I managed to color, flip and put them into a ziplock bag without). Also I soaked the shirts with a vinegar water solution for about an hour upfront cause it said that the color is supposed to hold and look better after.
After letting the color set for about 4-6 hours you can rinse each shirt with cold water and wash afterwards. The color with get a little lighter but still looks beautiful. Let it air dry and you are good to go.
– blue is the most pigmented color so I would recommend to wear gloves even to rinse it off as otherwise your hands will stay blue for some time
– plastic foil also works to keep it damp but a ziplock bag is the best
It was so much fun and I probably make another bunch with more difficult patterns cause I have so much color left. Some baby socks or/and a neckerchief for our dog would be great.
As of now I am pretty impressed with how easy it has been and I for myself think I got great results.
I am totally crazy for band shirts. Since the trend became really hot last year I have collected a bunch of pieces of very different bands. Some I have listened to a lot and some of them are new. I really don´t know what it is. Maybe it´s the vibrant colors or the different picutres of the bands. I just love them and that means a lot cause I have never been a huge fan of t-shirts on their own but band shirts somehow fit great with many pieces.
For this look for example I have paired my band t-shirt with a black a-line summer skirt. An all black look would have been to harsh for summer so I added a bunch of orange accessories to the outfit.
So for the rest of the week I have a beauty, DIY and a recipe post coming for you. I have a bunch of posts I can´t wait to share with you guys, especially beauty posts have become my favorites lately allthough they take time in preparation upfront cause I am testing all the products and the reviews are also much to write.
Since it will be warm here for at least a week I am wearing as much Summer clothing as possible as I am sure it will rain again soon.
I hope you enjoyed another way of styling a band t-shirt.
how classic and elegant does this beautiful cream white boucle jacket look? It is amazing how one singel piece of clothing can change the whole look going from casual without the jacket to fancy with it.
I got it from H&M the other week and love it so much I have already worn it a ton cause the ever changing weather makes one reach for a jacket almost everyday. It is on sale for under 35 Euro and also available in navy and black.
The rest of the outfit is kept pretty casual in black and white with a little splash of yellow in the tiger print shirt.
Our weekend has been pretty low key. We tried to enjoy as much of the warm weather as posssible as it is going to get cold again. I ahve a buch of indoor projects for the blog to get done and shot and I can´t wait to share how it turned out with you.
