What I’m Lovin’ in February

Aside from the fact that February brings lots of pink (yay!), it’s also the Hubs’ birthday month! Scroll on to see what I’ve been lovin’ this month…

1. My latest Out and About Dress

If I were a gamblin’ kind of gal, I’d bet my coworkers are getting tired of seeing me wear this dress every.week.! But I tell ya: I’m not sick of it! Not one bit. It’s so comfy. {Read all about the dress here}

2. My Leopard Print Tulip Top

I love how leopard print always makes me feel so sassy. And paired with bright pink accents means I feel extra sassy in my new Tulip Top! The pattern is by Melly Sews of Blank Slate Patterns. I bought the leopard french terry knit {looks like it’s sold out…I’m pretty sure I bought the last of the yardage! Here’s a zebra print french terry – equally as sassy!} and the pink knit ribbing from Imagine Gnats.

It’s not as noticeable in my picture, but the criss-cross front adds a sweet feminine element to this top and I love it!

3. This scarf MY SISTER SEWED for me!

On Saturday we had plans to meet up with Amber (who just so happens to be my quilt guild president, the sewing class teacher and bag-maker extraordinaire – I’m not convinced she sleeps) to model some of her bags.

You wouldn’t believe my excitement when my sister showed up at my door with THIS SCARF she had made me!! My heart just soared. I’m so proud of her. She was a trooper during the sewing class we took and has since been planning her next sewing project. I knew she was planning to attempt a scarf – and of course she didn’t pick the easiest pattern out there (we Slice Sisters go big or go home!), but I had no idea she was going to make me one too!

She had gifted me a set of fat quarters for Christmas, but I hadn’t settled on a project for them yet. The scarf pattern she chose involved using 6 fat quarters. She had already found some fabric she loved and ordered on Etsy, but was nervous to start with. I gave her back the bundle to practice with and reminded her: “what’s the worse that could happen?! We chop it back up and use the fabric for something else? Just go for it!”

And go for it she did! She made the scarf specifically to match my new favorite dress! Not only does it match my purple dress perfectly, but it matches the mint in my 2nd favorite dress perfectly too!

4. the Zoo

Yes, we totally celebrated the Hubs’ birthday at the zoo! It has been quite a while since I’ve been to the zoo and we had such a blast. Visiting the zoo as an adult is much different than when you were a kid (aka: the cages start to look smaller and the animals look a little more sad than you remember, but it was still fun!).

Ostriches always make me laugh. I’m not exactly sure why, but this picture makes me laugh every time I see it! In other giggle news, check out this adorable little penguin who put on quite a show for us! He was too cute.

 

5. IndieSew’s version of AddieK’s Canny Tunic

This version has me desperately wanting to make a Canny Tunic in a floral print ASAP!

You might remember my love for the Canny Tunic or maybe you know from all the other times you’ve seen pictures of me wearing them all.over.town. (here – oh! – and in England – here, here and here – they were pretty much all I wore while traveling!). I even converted the tunic to a dress for my sister!

The pattern is only 2 pieces which is pretty much GENIUS and most definitely beginner-friendly.

6. Our feature on Mortgages.com

Y’all might remember that time I shared a little bit about mine and Jeremy’s decision to skip a wedding and buy a house instead. It’s a story I love to tell. Skipping a wedding isn’t for everyone, but we’re still loving the decision we made.

Last week a super sweet colleague from a previous job contacted me and asked if she could share our story for Mortgages.com. Of course I said yes! What an honor! Kylee did a great job capturing our story – you can read it here if you’re interested.

Sending you sprinkles of joy and warm hugs til next time,

Jordan
