Fall Handmade Closet Wardrobe

Over the summer, while I was talking a break from the Goat & Lulu Etsy shop,  I did a lot of sewing for myself.  When I am caught up in orders, and making things for the kids, it is nearly impossible to carve out two hours or so to make a dress for myself (I still have a tunic that I cut out summer of 2014 that is waiting to be sewn together!)!  But while I wasn’t taking orders, I used my[Read more]

Fall 2015 Fashion Must Haves

Hi friends!  It’s September now, so as far as I’m concerned (despite our typical 80 degree Georgia days), it’s FALL!  For the past two years or so, I have been creating a must-have shopping list (more like wish-list, lol!) for each season, of the clothes and accessories that I would most like to add to my wardrobe.  I love (love, love, love, love, love!) shopping, but if I don’t have a list of things I’m looking for, and things I[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

So, I have been trying to be better (again) about taking photos of my outfits each day, so I am back today with WIWW!  Here’s what I wore this past week: My favorite dress that I have made for myself, hands down!  The pattern I used was the Washi Dress by Rae Hoekstra, and I already have another one cut out and ready to sew, and plans for several more.  The dress fit perfectly (thanks to a well-designed pattern), and[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

I got myself together this week and was able to create a new What I Wore Wednesday post!  The whole point of WIWW is to take pictures of outfits every day to encourage myself to get dressed and get going, and make the most out of the clothes in my closet.  I have definitely been slacking this summer (but it is summer…), but I made it happen this week!  So here’s what I wore… This dress was pretty much the deal[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

Hi Friends!  First of all, thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes yesterday!!  I think 33 is going to be one heck of a year. 🙂  Secondly, welcome to WIWW!  These posts have been few and far between lately, but I have several outfits to share today. I like Lilly Pulitzer, and have a few Lilly dresses, but I was not waiting in line at 6 am outside of Target waiting for the collection to debut last month.  Not[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday: Spring Dresses

I feel like we have really been blessed with an actual springtime season this year in Georgia.  We have had lots (and lots and lots) of rain, yes, but we have also had these lovely 65-75 degree days that are warm enough for bare legs or short sleeves, but necessitate a jacket or pair of jeans.  It seems like in recent years past, we only have about 2 weeks of springtime before winter morphs right into our typical hot, humid[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday: Handmade Wardrobe

As much as I love to shop (which is a lot), I love to sew.  Children’s clothes are easy to sew because they don’t take much time, and don’t take up much fabric either.  The lines are also pretty simple, since kids are pretty much straight up and down, with few curves.   But women’s clothing can be intimidating sometimes.  Women are obviously much more curvy, and you can’t make a women’s dress out of a yard of fabric like[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

Finally, I took the time to assemble another WIWW post!  The weather, over the last few weeks, has been about as unpredictable and as varied as possible.  75 degrees and sunny one day, and 50 the next.  Not only is it totally frustrating, since I am so ready for warm weather (consistent warm weather), but it is so hard to know what to wear and how to dress the kids! I have been trying to dress myself and the kids in[Read more]

Amanda’s Spring 2015 Fashion Must Haves

 The new season is upon us, friends!  I am a big fan of boots and sweaters and jeans, but after this yucky winter and lots of super cold weather, I am ready for bare legs, sandals, and loose, lightweight tunics.  Spring is here, and I am ready for some new clothes! Every season I make myself a “must haves” list.  I love buying clothes, but unless I focus my attention on a few key pieces that I really want, I[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

I have two outfits to share today for WIWW!  We spent a lot of time in comfies and jammies during the bad weather we had last week, so nothing else was really share-worthy, ha!  But here are two that were somewhat presentable… I wore this out last Friday when I was running a few errands, and I felt very pulled together (something that whether or not I look it, I don’t feel very often!).  My trusty plaid flannel blanket scarf[Read more]
