Spring Looks for Kids

Although it doesn’t really feel like spring outside, the season has arrived and with it comes some new fashion trends! I’ve been checking out a few of my favourite bloggers and what they have been posting in terms of Spring Fashions, and I like what I see! One thing I have noticed though is how expensive things can be.

You know that section of a magazine where they show you a picture of an actress wearing a super expensive dress and then the Old Navy version of the dress that looks almost identical? That’s how I shop.

I try to pick affordable items out there that won’t break the bank. Let’s face it, kids clothes don’t last that long. They either wear them out or outgrow them by the time that season rolls around again. So I did some online shopping…

Here are some of my favourite looks for girls:

DIY Spring Wreath

Back in September I posted a DIY I did for a fall wreath for our front door. I decided it would be nice to have something for Spring (and even summer) as well.

So, off to Michael’s I went to hunt for the supplies I would need for my wreath. I had something in mind, it was just a matter of making it come to life.

I decided to go with the same type of wreath that I used for my Fall wreath for a few reasons: 1. It was only $4.99 2. It is the perfect size 3. It is easy to work with. I found some artificial hydrangea’s that were 40% off, a clip on daisy for $1.29, a burlap rose that was $4.99, that was 30% off and some other flowers for 40% off. The whole thing cost me about $24 taxes in.

I decided not to add a bow, I thought the burlap rose was a good substitute.

I cut the stems of the flowers and arranged them around the wreath, and then wrapped the wires through the wreath.

Lastly I clipped on the sunflower and the burlap rose.

I am really happy with how it turned out and I am hoping it wills Spring to arrive soon!
