Babysitter Style

As I've mentioned recently, I've started working as a nanny/babysitter for the two cutest girls. Lately, I have been wearing t-shirts and shorts when I go watch the girls, but as summer turns to fall, I will be bringing the girls to ballet class, playdates, etc. I think it's time I change up my outfits...

So, what are the best nannies good at? Always being ready to run around, make a mess, clean up, and have everything on hand! The best outfit for the best nanny is polished and stylish, yet casual enough that it can stand the test of chasing after children and spilling everything (and who doesn't want to wear something fun and that they can enjoy). White is a major no-no (especially with younger children), and skirts are just going to lead to disaster. These looks that I have put together are affordable, stylish, fun, and guaranteed to pass the test of being a full-time nanny.

Let me know what you think of these looks in the comments below!

Crafty Saturday #46

It's the weekend again! You know what that means: Crafty Saturday! I've really come to enjoy putting together these DIY/craft posts. There are times when it can be really hard to find any projects that I am drawn to, and then there are times when I write up three weeks of posts because I've found so much great content (which is the case with this post - it was actually written on August 19). I feel like I'm finally starting to figure out where to look. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these projects because I sure do!

My Month in Instagrams: June/July 2014

As you have probably noticed, I fell pretty far behind when it came to blogging in June and July, so I never shared my favorite Instagram pictures that I took during those months. I figured late is better than never (even though I will be posting my August pictures next week), so enjoy!
For more pictures, follow me on Instagram!:

Tumblr Tuesday #59

Hey there friends! It's already Tuesday again. I've had a lot going on lately, and I'm only adding to it by moving this weekend. I'm only moving down the block, which I'm grateful for, but I'm hoping that this is the last time I move for a while! It would be nice for somewhere to actually feel like home.
Anyway, here is your weekly dose of inspiration via my tumblrs, wildflwrchild, vredig, and cleangreenvegan.
