Welcome to my new series! I am having a little technical difficulty for some reason with my polyvore sets, so bear with me.
The point of the new series to remind us all to have fun getting dressed in the morning. Just because you're trudging through your typical day to day, doesn't mean you can't look great. I'm going to occasionally (weekly) put together accessible outfits for a casual lifestyle. I call the aesthetic "Put-together playground." Sound fun? I think so. I will also throw in some luxury items just for fun. Take these ideas and run with them. Getting dressed in the morning should stimulate your brain. Don't just throw on your yoga pants and that old t-shirt! You never know who you'll run into in Target. This is my small effort to fight the "slouchification of America" (thank you, Tim Gunn, for being awesome).

Hope you'll enjoy this! If you have any request for outfit ideas for specific outings, please leave a comment.

PS- The links aren't working for few items: toddler t's and owl jumper are from Mini Boden, the spotty lunch thermal is from Land of Nod.

Dear July,

You were hot. Really hot. Ridiculously hot even. But I've been waiting for you to come all year because I couldn't wait for my poster calendar in the Kitchen to display this:

I'm a little sad that come Monday, I'll be taking you down. Thanks for bringing popsicle happiness to our house.

Dear July 2012 in the Linnea poster calendar,
You are also amazing, and I will look forward to you hopefully gracing my walls.

Yard Work

These make me so happy!!
And so do my zinnias, especially since the whole seed packet cost like $0.88.
This is where I am not succeeding. I think my roses may need to RIP...and that boxwood bush behind as well. How did these roses get so creepy looking?!
Should have pictures to show you soon of my veggies!
And a special thanks to Amy Free for the new blog header- yay!

for the weird posts in your reader, if you got those. Apparently my Polyvore account thought it needed to load lots of randoms directly onto the blog.
Happy Friday!
