The good news is I’m finally getting a decent handle on this 3 kid situation. The bad news is that this blog has been neglected as a result. Please join me over on instagram (@dressupfiles) as that is where I’m most active these days. Here are some recent instagram posts. You can click on each image for outfit details and links!
This look embodies pretty much everything I want to be wearing this Summer…white dresses, gladiator sandals, something suede, something fringed and some boho silver jewelry. Chloe’s RTW Spring 2015 collection had me swooning with all the breezy white dresses paired with gladiator sandals and that was the inspiration for this look.
I will say these gladiator sandals by Zara look great but do take forever to take on and off. For a super easy pair with a zipper back, I highly recommend these Schutz Billa Gladiator Sandals. They’re pretty much sold out everywhere but looks like they have some limited sizes left here and 20% off to boot!

One of my favorite shoe trends for Spring/Summer 2015 is anything laced up. Today’s topic of discussion is a flat sandal with a simple ankle wrap, perfectly depicted by Isabel Marant. I searched high and low for more affordable versions and this is the best I could do this early in the season. I am pretty confident that Zara and other brands will come out with their affordable versions in the coming months but if you can’t wait, here are some great options. I think the K. Jacques ones look so chic, are of incredible quality and cost just over half the price of the Isabel Marant’s. Sold!
It’s been a long and slow process but Project Playroom is finally complete. This remodel was a fun collaboration with paint company, Colorhouse. Their low odor paints contain no VOC’s, no reproductive toxins, no chemical solvents, and no toxic fumes (HAPs free). I know that’s a mouthful but to sum it up, if you care about your health and the health of those in your home (particularly any little ones), this is the paint to use.
I selected a soft pink (sprout .06) for most of the room and then used chalkboard paint (nourish .06) to accent one wall. Stay tuned…I have a special discount for colorhouse paints at the bottom of this post!

If you follow me on instagram (@dressupfiles), you would have seen me post this DIY magnetic board I made. I got the idea off pinterest (where else?) and used this drip pan,this spray paint and these wooden magnetic letters.

Once the decals were up, I drew faces on them using permanent marker. It does not leak through to the wall at all.
