Pretty Things

Lately, I have been a little frustrated with my work wardrobe. I do a lot of warehouse work and if I wear anything nice it gets gross and after a while ruined. I’m lugging cardboard boxes around and such and they are not clean after coming off of the truck. I always feel so gross when I am done with work. 

I have a tom-boy side. I love to get dirty outside. I love to play in the dirt and mud. I love mountain biking and skiing. But… I also love to look pretty. I love some girly clothes. I love flowy dresses and shirt. I love shorts or skirts. So, with my work wardrobe being gross and kind of bland at this point, I have been eyeing some really pretty things on pinterest lately. 

Maybe I can find a job where I can look this cute all the time!

Do you find yourself daydreaming about pretty things sometimes? Or is it just me?

See ya!

It has been a while hasn’t it…

Ok, so I haven’t posted in a while. Oops. I had three days off last week all right in a row. It was fantastic! I love having those days off and having nothing to except read, knit, watch goofy movies, and even pack a little. It was wonderful. I did exactly those things. I honestly felt so carefree, I love summer vacation. I love being done with my undergrad. I love life. Then the weekend came and I was busy at work, my husband was home and ended up getting sick and so blogging just did not happen.

This week, I have had yesterday and today off and I also have tomorrow off. I would’ve had an awesome week like last week, except…. I have had trouble getting my butt either off the bed or the couch. The horrible head cold that my husband had, he graciously passed it on to me. So, needless to say, there has been a lot of napping and doing absolutely nothing. I currently have a burst of energy so I’ve done some packing and cleaning but I am curious to see how long this burst is going to last.

So, since I have accomplished hardly anything in my days off this week, I want to show you what I accomplished in my days off last week! It was way too fun!

I already showed you the flowy skirt I made out of a dress. Pretty awesome!
Next I made a dishcloth:

I really liked this pattern so I decided to give it a whirl. Turned out great and I love the color!
Then I made TJ a not slouchy hat. I don’t have a picture of it on his head yet but I have the hat itself.

It is a nice merino wool and will keep his head warm in Denver.

You already saw the first box of packing that I did. I am actually finishing up box number 4. Wow!

Now that I have some spare time again, I decided it was time to have fun with my hair again. It is still a work in progress but here we are at this juncture.

There is blonde on both sides, and in the back. I am looking to put a little bit of blue in there at some point but it has been a long process lightening my reluctant brown hair. No worries, the lightener smells like blueberries, it is awesome!

Anyway, that was the progress I made last week. No such luck this week. It happens.

See ya!

S is for Style, My Style to be Exact

Today I thought I would show some of the items that typically show up in my everyday wardrobe. I am super easy going but with a little bit of quirkiness and that definitely comes out in what I wear.

This tends to be my normal everyday wear. A V-neck, a hoodie, hair pulled back into a messy bun, and little to no make-up unless I am going out somewhere.

Always paired with some kind of jeans, today it is my ripped ones, and some sandals.

I also love love love scarves! Those are layers of scarves, there is more there than meets the eye.

I also love converse! I have been wearing them since I was 13. Obviously not this pair, but I have been wear converse shoes for almost 9 years now.

And, I love my red lipstick! If it went with everything I wore everyday, I would probably wear it everyday, but alas, it does not on some days.

Well there is a glimpse into the makings of my style. It is kind of mismatched but I like it. I also love dresses, anything that flows really nicely, and tank tops. Some days I love dressing up, other days I do not want to get our of my pajamas. Just ask TJ, he can tell you how he doesn’t know what to expect me to wear form day to day.

Yesterday, I forgot to put up a picture of my bag being put to good use with my rock climbing stuff in it so here it is:

I am also following another blog on here called whendidibecomeaknitter. You can check out her blog here. She is making this blanket called the Epic Blanket of Insanity. I found the pattern she is working form and decided to start my own. I am having so much fun learning this new way of making a blanket. Here is the beginnings of my insanity.

It is little squares or diamonds or however you want to look at it and you piece them together to make this rather large blanket. You can check out the pattern here. 

Hope you enjoyed my style and what is going on in my project land right now!

See ya!
