Hello and Welcome to “How I Wore It”!

I am an average lady of 29 years that loves fashion and feeling good about myself. I wanted to start posting some of my outfits here because I love them so much! There are lots of fashion bloggers out there and let me tell you, I’m not one of them. I’m 5’3” and 128lbs, I work a full time job during the week in education and on the weekend my husband and I are waist deep in farm/house projects. This means that my outfits usually consist of black khakis and a sweater during the weeks and knee ripped jeans with a hoodie on the weekends.

In the times that I do put some thought into an outfit I would love to post them here to my blog for all of you to see. I’ll tell you as much as I know about the pieces such as; Where and when I purchased them and the price. I’ll also share why I love the outfit so much!

Here we go!

Why I love this outfit:

  1. Prints
    • Some people are really scared of prints but for whatever reason I’m okay with walking over that line. I fell in love with this herringbone print in Navy and Grey. LuLaRoe has amazing prints and solids in all of their products which is why I’ve gravitated towards their items so much lately.
  2. One Piece
    • There is no extra thought that goes into this outfit. Just throw it on and go! This was my Easter Sunday dress for church. Our church is a little on the casual side so I wore a jean jacket not shown in these photos.
  3. The Zipper
    • You can’t see it here, but there is a large zipper in the back that is super cute. If you go in the link above you can see it.
  4. POCKETS
    • That’s right! Pockets! Nuff Said.

Can’t wait to show you more!

Basement Reno Part II, III, IV, Eternity….

The title of my post is exactly how I feel. My Husband and I started this project in early January and I am happy to say as of April 5th we have finished! AMEN to that! It feels like an eternity ago that we started. There were lots of up and downs but the room survived, our marriage survived, and I’m happy to have our finished product.

Below are the photos I took throughout the past 3 months. We have moved furniture in but I still have small things to do with the room to make it nice a cozy before I post our FINAL Photos!

Enjoy our handy work!

The Green Pinky Series: Starting Seeds Indoors

 

Hi friends! Today I wanted to share with you some tips for starting your own garden seeds indoor. Growing up I lived in a suburban neighborhood in a home with a lavish flower garden on every side of the house. The last thing I wanted to do was to help my mother water the flowers. It wasn’t until high school when I took a plant science class that my love for horticulture started. The idea that I could put a seed into the soil, water it, give it some fertilizer, and magically see it grow over the next few months caught my heart and I’ve loved it ever since.

“The Green Pinky” is a play on words. Everyone that knows someone who can keep plants alive will usually refer to said person as having, “A Green Thumb”. But here is a secret… a  gardeners secret. We’ve killed plants… sometimes we continue to kill plants even after years of experience. That’s how gardeners learn the art. You could do everything right, and then a pest takes over the entire crop. So then next year, you spray for the pest or use other non-chemical methods to make sure that pest doesn’t take over this years crop. You make mental notes or write down what worked and what didn’t. Everyone’s growing environments are completely different and no one starts out as a master gardener.

If you aren’t a green thumb yet, no worries! It takes time and practice… and of course remembering to water your gardens.
