The ears look quite a bit smaller on their heads!

Why carry a basket when you can push a shopping cart? 😉

We thought it would be lots of fun to do a little Easter egg hunt with them in our backyard, since they are still pretty small we didn’t want them getting trampled by all the big kids at the park hunt our church puts on every year, so I filled a bunch of little eggs with some gummy candy and it totally backfired! Now they constantly open them looking for candy and they get so upset that there is none in there! It’s kind of crushing seeing them get so excited as they go through their eggs, shaking them one at a time checking for candy, only to be let down…I may be doing random egg hunts all year-long.

We had Easter dinner at my Grams house this year and it wound up being such a gorgeous day that we got to hang out outside for a bit, she has such a cool yard! Stormy and Ev’s had a lot of fun playing back there, that little face on the tree just might be my favorite.

DIY Mommy and Me Best Friends Jackets {NYFW Inspired}

DIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets

DIY Mommy and Me Best Friends Jackets Matching OutfitDIY Mommy and Me Best Friends Jackets Matching OutfitAfter seeing this photo of Shea Marie and Caroline Vreeland from NYFW floating around all over the internet and showing up in my Pinterest feed, I knew I just had to recreate some of these matching best friends jackets for Everly and I. Such a cute keepsake to have and something I will always cherish, and how awesome would it be if one day, many years from now, Everly took some of these photos with her own little girl? One can dream right? 🙂

DIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets OutfitDIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets OutfitMaterials:

Two moto jackets in your sizes (I purchased mine from Forever 21 for around $35 & Ev’s is H&M but I found it used on eBay for $25)

Heart template (I just Googled it and chose an image I liked)

Scissors to cut template

Chalk pencil for tracing

Ruler (to make heart bigger if template is smaller than desired)

Sharpie paint pen

These were pretty straight forward to make, but the hardest part was definitely scaling the hearts to size. I printed my half on a full sheet of printer paper and Ev’s on half of a sheet. I decided I wanted them a little bigger than the template and I also wanted that elementary “I drew this on my best friends binder” sort of look (because I think it makes it look more authentic), so I used the ruler to eyeball around my template and mark it with a chalk pencil. Then I just traced over my line with a sharpie paint pen, let it dry (it dries almost instantly but I waited an hour just to be sure), and then wrote the letters in the middle. Let it dry and they are ready to wear!

An Updated Vintage Look For Valentine’s Day

Kim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsKim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsKim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsKim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsKim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsKim in vintage Lilli Ann + Mode Collective Red HeelsJacket: Vintage Lilli Ann // Denim: Calvin Klein (thrifted) // Red Lace Up Heels: Mode Collective, similar // Necklace: Vintage // Earrings + Bracelet: J. Crew

I’ve never been one to wear a ton of pink and Valentine’s day is usually no exception, so this year I chose an all black look with just a pop of red. I wore my Mode Collective heels I scored at the Piperlime closing sale along with this vintage Lilli Ann jacket I’ve had for quite some time but haven’t worn yet. Since it has such a bold collar I chose to simplify it and wear it as a top, I love that it’s still comfortable and I don’t feel over dressed 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day!
