Shopping Party: Blanket Scarf

Friends, we are so, so excited for our upcoming Shopping Party!  We are so grateful for the support we received at the Lone Tree Folk Festival.  Y'all are truly the greatest!  Now that we're gearing up for the party, we want to give you a preview of a few of the items we'll be selling!

We are loving that the weather is finally changing so we want to introduce our Blanket Scarf!

Dress is up a little with skinny jeans, a blazer, and ankle wedges.

Stay warm and cozy with a plaid button-up, puffy vest, jeans, and ankle boots.

On the ridiculously warm Mississippi fall day, wear a T-shirt dress, open chambray, and wedges.

There will only be a limited number of every item we sell so don't miss out!  The scarves will sell for $28 and will be a perfect Christmas present!

We look forward to sharing more with y'all!! 


***UPDATED:  If I want y'all to join us, I should probably tell you WHEN this shindig is!  Join us on November 21st at Rox's house!  'Like' us on FaceBook to find out more!***

Lone Tree Folk Festival 2015

Hi y'all! I feel like we should reintroduce ourselves because we've been gone from this little blog for so long. I am so happy to be back and share a little about what has been going on with all of us over the past year and a half! 

 BUT......before we get to those details, I wanted to share some pictures from our Lone Tree Folk Festival booth this year. Our good friends host 'Nesbit's Oldest and Largest Folk Festival' complete with hay rides, face painting, a chili cookoff, games, live music, and this year, craft/art booths. It's such a fun time with friends and family!  We were excited to be a part of it this year, and it gave us some much needed motivation to get back into the creating game! 

 And for those of you locals who weren't able to make it out to shop....have no fear! We will be back this year with our Holiday Shopping Party on NOVEMBER 21 at Roxanne's house! So, mark those calendars and be on the lookout for a your Facebook Invitation! 

We loved getting to visit with so many of you at the Festival and would love to do it again at the party!  We'll be rolling out some new items just in time to start your Holiday Shopping!

Thank y'all so much for supporting of Dwelling and Dress over the years!

Home Tour: Master Bathroom {Rox's House}

Since this is not a house we planned on living in for long, we wanted to spend just enough to "update" some necessary features without breaking the bank.

I'm really excited at how much cleaner and pulled together this space feels with minimal work.

The paint job alone totally transforms a room (and is pretty inexpensive).

 The bathroom was paint a wheat yellow before.

Again, I say, don't judge me.

I probably painted this room about 7 or 8 years ago and CAREFULLU selected this color.

Let's just say I'm so glad it's gone.

I continued the same gray paint we used in the rest of the house (a 5 gallon bucket of Farrell Calhoun Paint was used on every wall in our 1200 square foot house and we still have some to spare!)

I then spray painted the brass light fixture, towel ring, and towel bar.

M made the frame for the mirror using simple white wood from Home Depot.  We painted it with leftover black outdoor paint from our front and back doors (if you take on this project, make sure to paint the back of the wood as well, at least along the inside'll be able to see it because of the the double-paned mirrors).

We then applied wood glue (gorilla glue, to be favorite), placed them directly on the edge of the mirror, and secured them with painter's tape until they dried.

We let them dry about 6-8 hours just to be sure and they haven't budged!

And just so you can see that a simple bathroom update doesn't have to cost an arm and leg, here's a cost breakdown:

Shower Curtain Rod: $20
Wall Paint: Free (Leftover)
Oil-Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint: $8
White Wood (Mirror Frame): $15
Frame Paint: Free (Leftover)
Toilet Handle: $7

TOTAL: $50

Have you done any home updates on a budget?

Please share your projects with us (  We'd love to feature you on our blog!

Happy Thursday, y'all!

Everyday Threads

Shirt: Thrifted // Skinnies: Target // Sandals: Target // Head Wrap:  Oh, Sweet Joy // Necklaces: Target
I've been stuck in rut.

I literally have been wearing workout clothes EVERYDAY.  'Good Job, Jess!' you may say...

But, no.  I fell off the P90X wagon soon after telling you about it... I am NOT working out everyday...

I feel like I need to wear my workout clothes so it LOOKS like there's a reason I look grubby.  Tell me I'm not the only one!  Plus, yoga pants are don't even try to argue with that one!

It took a teensy bit more effort to get ready this morning, but it was worth it.  I have nothing special happening today... but changing diapers is a little more 'fun' with lipstick on!

Outfit deets:  LOVE my head wrap (gift from ROX!) from Oh, Sweet Joy.  I have 2 day old hair so it's getting a little rough.. My head wrap makes dressing cute a little more possible!  She has a lot of prints and different styles.

Just scored my sandals from Target for $15! Score!

Target jeans are fantastic. Cheap and quite a few styles to choose from.. I have high-waisted skinnies (comfy and stretchy!) that are PERFECT for post-baby bodies!  I can't wait to style them to showcase the fantastic waistline of these jeans!  They are very modern-meets-vintage.

Thanks for reading, friends!  And thanks for sharing in my accomplishment of getting dressed today!!
