A Pocket Redo :)

27 Jul

Before you look at the picture I’m about to show you – I have these jean shorts that I bought at a consignment store. The pockets hang out of the jeans and it drives me insane!! You are probably wondering why I bought them then, so I’ll go ahead and explain the whole story. I’m tiny. End of story.

Lol – just kidding. So I wear youth size clothes because I’m really petite and even though I’m a Mom, none of the women’s clothes fit my body at all  – nor do they look anywhere near appealing. So I shop in the youth section. Finding something that fits me well, isn’t childish looking, and especially with shorts – aren’t TOO short is a tough battle. These jean shorts are mostly worn for painting, doing work outside, and being lazy around the house. I don’t wear them out but I still wanted a pair that fit nicely so picked these up thinking they would be perfect.

The pockets kill me. I flip them up under my jeans but they always fall back down so I finally decided to fix them myself.

I pinned where I wanted to sew and set the sewing machine to one of my favorite stitches. It looks like the sixth stitch on the first row:

Then I took my scissors and cut off the extra fabric on the bottom and TADA:

My shorts are no longer driving me crazy and ready to get some work done 😉

I love new listings!! I wish it was easier to post new listing though.. but anyways! I have a few new things listed in my shop on etsy. A special thanks to my husband for helping me out with pictures since I’m disabled 😉 lol.

My Mom and I have been crocheting like crazy people since it seems like this winter is going to be cut short. Crocheting in the heat just isn’t as much fun for some crazy reason 😉 haha.

So stick around! I should have new listings next week to show off too – if you want to check out my etsy store click the link here – Daydreaming Gifts!

Mom Jeans? That’s hardly my problem!

8 Jan

After having a child – I completely understand why almost every new mom buys mom jeans, wears baggy clothes, cuts off most of their hair , and hardly wears makeup. Mom jeans are hardly my problem! Since I quit my job and started working from home – my problem is MUCH worse! Try mom jeans, NO makeup, hair a hott mess (and not the cute kind), t-shirts, sweatshirts, your lucky if I remember to change out of my pj’s 😉

So even though I’m not one of those people who really does new years resolutions and I had already decided my resolution was to get my business further off the ground – I’m adding a few things – like for example – to remember that I was once hott. That I’m allowed to spend money on myself for things like clothes and a hair cut! That spending an hour or more “getting ready” was fun.

Tonight I was watching TV with Brian and checking out Pinterest because I’m addicted. Instead of looking at the DIY section I just went ahead and chose Everything to see what everyone else was looking at. As I’m scrolling down I see hott girls, pretty hair, makeup, cloths, crazy boots and I look at Brian and think to myself, “I am one lucky girl that he’s still here!”

If only I was rich and I could get a personal shopper to pick out clothes for me. I feel like after being in a hole (my house) for two years – I have no idea what’s hott anymore – heck I still have no idea what size clothes I wear – I’ve been in momville so long I’m pretty sure even if I went on a shopping spree I’d pick all the wrong things! How nice would it be to say oh hey – figure out what size I am, what looks good on me, and what’s in style and here’s your budget. I’m sure if I did find someone who wanted to do it they’d look at the budget and walk away.

I’m that person that never spends full price on clothes. My sister taught me long long ago how to find the best brands for the best deals and shopping used to be an adventure! I used to schedule the whole day and be ready to drive as far as I needed to go to dig through a bunch of clothes to find what most people would pay a fortune for. My personal shopper would probably cry at the thought of wasting time on me. Oh the days..

So how do you mom’s stay hott, find time to get ready AND shop, and the budget that goes with it? I definitely need all the tips I can get 😉

 

Love Always,

J
