TUESDAY: Utility Shirt + Classic Denim

Utility Shirt

You can never have too many pockets when working on a DIY. They’re comfy, stylish, and functional.

THE Classic – Levi’s 501

There’s a reason why these are a classic! These jeans can be worn while tackling a project but transition to everyday wear for running errands, spending time with friends, or for dinner out.


WEDNESDAY: Work Shirt + Sweats

Shirt Jacket

This “Shacket” is heavier duty so it would be great to wear for warmth, style, and comfort. This one is chambray with a flannel lining.

Sweat Pants

Sometimes you just want to be comfortable. When that’s the case there’s no better option than a pair of comfortable sweat pants!


THURSDAY: The perfect ‘fit for painting

Cotton Twill Coveralls

Coveralls are perfect for painting! They keep you and your favorite clothes free from paint! Another perk is that you don’t have to worry about if you get paint on them or not.

Sporty Sandals

Wearing appropriate close toe shore sis important when handling heavy materials and machinery but i think it’s okay to wear something a little more comfortable when painting indoors or working on crafts.


FRIDAY: Pocket Tee + Comfortable (yet durable) Pants

Pocket Tee

T-shirts are life and a pocket tee makes an already perfect item of clothing more perfect. This tee is soft, stretchy, and comfortable.

Jogger Work Pants

The comfort of a jogger with the performance of a work pant! I mean come on, this combination is what dreams are made of.

SATURDAY: Classic Tee + Classic Shoes

Ringer Tee

Yes, I’m recommending not one… but two graphic DIY tees. Every DIYer deserves a fun uniform and this DIY definition tee is too cute not to have.

Classic Sneakers

These are great for when you’re on the go — whether it’s a trip to Home Depot or Home Goods it’s important to have a comfortable (and on trend) shoe.


Sunday: Bonus outfit for a day off

Babydoll Dress

It’s important to take a day off from DIY, work, or projects to just enjoy and rest. Sunday brunch, church, or time with family are some of my favorites! Why not come up with an excuse to dress up?

Ankle Strap Heels

Heels aren’t for everyone BUT they’re definitely a favorite for me. These transition well from spring into summer and into early fall.

3 Under $30 Dresses That I’m Obsessed with + Postpartum Fashion

Today I’m sharing THREE cute dresses that look good on any body shape, but that are also super accomodating for a new (and nursing mom).

One of the hardest adjustments for me during pregnancy and over the last 5 weeks has been seeing my body change so drastically and so quickly. While pregnant, I had to watch my body change to adjust to growing a human…. and now it’s changing again as I lose the “baby weight” while also producing food to keep that human alive.

I’ve been so blessed that I’ve already lost about 70% of the weight I gained during my pregnancy BUT of course my body shape is completely different than what it was before and that means I can’t wear a lot of my old clothing. My hips are wider, my chest is bigger, AND I didn’t exercise at ALL while pregnant, so I have very little muscle definition in my arms and legs.

I went on the hunt and found three dresses you can wear for different activities; fun, work, and relaxation.

FUN: Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress – $29.99

Who doesn’t love a good maxi dress? This look is perfect for a summer picnic or casual backyard BBQ. This dress has functional buttons but it’s also lightweight. The printed fabric screams “SUMMER” to me.

V-Neck Strappy Button Front Tiered Maxi Dress

This dress is extremely comfortable and I can see it transitioning well into early fall. It would pair well with a demin jacket and suede boots.

The dress runs a little large to me. I orginally ordered this dress in a size medium but had to exchange it for a small. This small is actually still a little big (and long) on me.
