Handmade Weekend Wardrobe

This weekend i got to thinking about how much stuff don’t I share here because it feels too casual? I think a lot of the time on Design Diary, I share my favourite stylings of my creations – which probably leads everyone to believe I “dress up” all.the.time.

Lets be honest, that’s just not the case :) So i went looking through some of our family photos from before we left Virginia to show you another side of me – the chasing kiddos across fields side hehehe. Though I still wear my designs every day, sometimes on the weekend I’m just a shorts and tshirt girl… which is really best for exploring civil war battlefields and climbing trees. And funnily enough, that’s the way Chris likes it best :)

And can we all please have a good laugh at how much it looks like Bunny and i are posing in one of those cheesy family portraits – you know what i mean right? hehe

And incase you were wondering where Buddy was – why he was chasing airplanes. Of course.

Shall we do the breakdown?

I love your stripey top with the color in matching but bigger stripes! The chasing airplanes photo is very cute.

Although I get dolled up during the week, I’m like you and am a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal on the weekends!
