Friday Favorites: Wearing, Reading, and DIY’ing

Wearing, Reading, and DIY’ing

Happy Friday sweet friends and cheers for the weekend! As we round out August (I have my eye on you, September!) I thought it would be fun to share a bit about what I’ve been up to. The books I am reading, what I am wearing, and one DIY project all for your review!

What I am Wearing

I should really title this “What I am Dreaming of Wearing” because lately I have had fall fashion on my mind! However, the tencel, boxy shirt I shared yesterday has been on repeat. Like 3 times this week. What can I say? It’s soft and comfortable yet stylish at the same time!

Off white denim is a trend I am currently loving! I ordered a pair from Prime Wardrobe and returned them, I liked them but was holding out for a pair from Target. This pair arrived yesterday and I made a reel with them – what do you think? I think they are so versatile and the perfect option for those not wanting to wear white after Labor Day!

Reading Lately

My library does home delivery and I get so excited when a new book arrives. It’s like online shopping for free! I received two books this week and so far I am only about a third of the way into the first one. It’s called Second Husband and I really like it! I can’t wait to jump into the next one, A Flicker in the Dark. Have you read anything good lately?

This is certainly not a crafting blog and I am no Martha Stewart but I do enjoy painting things and upcycling. Whenever I am out at a thrift store I always look for trays or other odds and ends I can change up easily with paint. So here’s what I am DIY’ing!

I bought this tray some time ago and knew I wanted to paint it but I wasn’t sure what color. Finally, I came to the conclusion that pink was it! This literally takes 10 minutes (not including drying time) and is so easy. I clean whatever I am painting first with denatured alcohol and then spray away!

There’s just something about doing something myself that brings me joy! Painting is easy and if it doesn’t come out the way you envisioned, just re-paint!

Well, that’s a wrap! It’s been a week of busy-ness. I am working hard on Instagram and trying to get my blog up to speed. Tonight we have plans with our friends to go to a small theater to see a play. I am excited!!! Do you have anything planned for this weekend?
