Whether near or far, talked in person or just online, friends are friends, and I’m grateful for each and everyone. A few days ago, my friend Kassi from Truly Lovely swooped in right when I needed a friend. She asked me to switch places with her for her Bloggie Bestie series, right when I really needed a good distraction from all the packing and signing and bleeding money.
I couldn’t be more excited to have Kassi here today, and to be over at Truly Lovely sharing my thoughts on how I build an outfit.
So sit back, enjoy, and let Kassi make your day a little more lovely
Hello there lovely Momma Go Round readers!!!
I am SO BEYOND excited to be here today! I’ve been reading Nina’s blog since… Well, since I started reading blogs!
It’s always been a favorite, so it’s my pleasure to be sharing her slice of blog land today!
(She’s over at my place sharing some fun right now too, so as soon as your done here I’m sure she’d love a visit!)
By the way, I’m Kassi and I blog over at Truly Lovely, ‘an all things lovely’ blog written by me and my sister, Kayli.
We like to talk about crafts, recipes, being thankful, fashion… You know, the LOVELY things in life! You can learn more about us and our blog by clicking our picture up there, but in the meantime… I would love to share my most recent sewing endeavor with you dolls!!!
We all know Nina is quite the fashionista and every fashionista loves her some accessories! My favorite accessory is always a good bag! Now, I’ll be honest, I’ve only really gotten into sewing within the last year or so, I am by no means an expert. But I can totally handle an EASY shopping tote pattern! Every lady needs a lovely tote for those fun shopping excursions, am I right?!
So, needless to say, I whipped one up! I’m not going to give you a rundown of how it was made… If you want to make one, the pattern is available in most craft stores or online (Simplicity W2420).
But I am going to tell you that with a couple yards of fabric and my sewing machine I made myself an accessory that I’m more proud to carry than any $100 bag!
The reasons I’m so proud of this tote? I saved my family the money it would’ve taken to purchase a more expensive bag… I made myself something that I can actually use and enjoy! All while staying in my budget!
We’ve all read how Nina stays within her shopping budget by carefully shopping for just the right item. Well in this case, I MADE myself just the right item!
Maybe you’re not a seamstress… But you can just as easily make yourself a beautiful beaded necklace or dye that faded pair of blue jeans into a bright pink pair that’s become so popular. It’s totally doable friends!
And I think that’s Real Momma, Real Style worthy, don’t you!?!
Thanks so much to Nina for having me over today! Hope you’ll stop by Truly Lovely sometime!
SO TRUE KASSI!
Style has nothing to do with how much you spent, where you got it, or if it’s “in”. It’s all about finding/making what you love and expressing yourself. I just LOVE that pink pattern…wanna make me one
Thanks so much for being a bright spot in my crazy week Kassi!
