Fashion Friday: Lovable Jax

First, I want to apologize for not doing our normal Fashion Friday!  I was getting dressed for it this morning and then Jax had a terrible accident that scared the bageezas out of me.

He’s OK!  As they say, probably scares the parent more than the child, but it took most of the day out for us.  And a major emotional toll on me!  This was my first scary moment as a parent (aside from the flu).

We are waiting on some really cool items for our Easter Sunday picture post, which we’ll be doing next week.

So this is what I for Fashion Friday on a whim . . . some totally laughable, loveable pics of Jax (or at least that is what I think).

Evolution of Jax’s Face in 10 seconds…

Shirt: Carter’s Elephant Shirt, $7.00, and Old Navy khaki shorts, $12.95.

sell, trade, and then buy!

Thrifted Janie & Jack linen gray shorts and top, $6.50 (didn’t cost me anything because I traded in some of his clothes).

Don’t forget to enter our giveaway and check out our awesome collaborators, Katie’s Creative Baking and A Bath Shoppe, for the giveaway.  And this really awesome discount for cute little plush toys by Millie Fern.  I broke down and bought this for Dee for her b-day… April 1st – yes she has a totally unique and amazing birth – day.

Have a great weekend!

Orange you glad it’s Fashion Friday?

Ash was kinda busy yesterday to do Fashion Friday so I decided to throw one together for you guys this evening.  It’s too cold for me to wear cute little dresses here but I’m definitely thinking of spring!  And when I think of where to buy cute dresses I automatically think of modcloth.com.  By far one of my favorite stores to shop at!  All of their vintage inspired clothing is just to die for!  So here’s an outfit I’ve been hoping to buy:

Glamour Power to You Dress in Garden from modcloth.com, white and yellow vintage beaded necklace from KatcherrFancy on etsy.com, vintage kitten heels in mustard yellow from squirrel397 on etsy.com. 

Pair with some cute pointed flats or heels in mustard yellow and a chunky necklace.  If my whole wardrobe consisted of variations on mustard yellow things I’d be a happy camper :)

Wednesday Wants: Chevron Chic Nursery

I decided to take a break from my normal retro-over-the-top-eclectic style and actually do a modern, minimalist (Surprise, Surprise!).   It seems lately I can’t get on the internet without being swarmed by chevron images.  Did this start with Target’s Missoni line?  Well however it started – we love it!  Here’s our chevron chic treasury on etsy

Retro Nursery: Chevron Chic

The inspiration for this week was, of course, this awesome chair that Ash found on etsy.  We LOVE it!  We know it’s expensive but. come. on.  Someone has to buy it right?  Make the chair the focal point and keep walls to one of the coordinating shades of gray found on the chair (or if you want some color choose an accent wall in the lime green – that’s what I would do of course!).  We pulled the teal color from the chair to match the nursery and then added pops of the lime green here and there.

Vintage Barrel Chair from UpcycledHome

Hang the cool teal pendant light over the chair, a little low to use as a book light.  Carpet the floor with this cool felt ball rug.

Use industrial furniture to give a more modern look.  Use the vintage Steel Art filing cabinet as a converted changing table (so much storage!). Place the chevron diaper caddy on top with a changing pad in either lime green, teal, or light gray.

Add awesome vintage teal school chairs to a little table for a drawing area.  Place the teal filing drawer on a low book shelf made from steel plumbing pipe to store art supplies (and books).

Make the crib up in eco-friendly teal bedding and gray sheets.  Add a pop of color with this coordinating pillow with a circle print in teal and lime green.  Over the bed hang a modern circle mobile in coordinating colors.

For room decoration find neat vintage industrial finds like this cool hubcap clock and vintage 1950s teal radio.  Also add some chevron themed toys – these little wooden boats are perfect!

Industrial lime green book ends from orangedoorvintage

Chevron Striped Sailboat from TweetToys

Finally,  (what you didn’t think we could find more chevron items?) for you and the kiddos; get the awesome diaper bag, cute little chevron shoes, and pretty little chevron dress.

OK – all chevroned out? I am a little.  Check out our pinterest and favorites on etsy for even more chevron themed baby stuff!
