Spring Fashion Wishlists

Spring is officially here! While for those of us in Cleveland that means that it will probably snow several more times, it doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about our Spring fashion wishlists. Here’s what we’re daydreaming of wearing once the weather starts cooperating.


Here in Pasadena, we get the valley heat that the people on the coast (talking to you Santa Monica) will never have to experience. While it’s not humid like Ohio, it sure can get toasty. This white boxy tank from Aritzia looks like it would be great for a hot ass weekend and could be dressed up or down. And we’re in luck as it just went on sale—grab it now! To go with my new breezy shirt life, I have also been trying to up my clutch game. Or, as my friends affectionately call it, a party purse. This embroidered clutch looks neutral enough to wear with everything but still has a lot of personality (See the adorable blue/white striped lining). And, while I’m wishing, how adorable are these Keds in collaboration with Rifle Paper Co? They are impossibly hard to get and sold out the instant I clicked to buy, so somehow I just want them more.

Michelle's Spring Fashion Wishlist: Everlane silk square shirt, Kork-Ease sandals, button front skirt

I love giant tops that barely touch my body, especially when it’s warm out, so this square-shaped Everlane shirt is high on my list for Spring. Last year I bought almost exclusively cropped shell tank tops, and this year I think I’m buying all squares. That’s how a capsule wardrobe works, right? Buy six of the same thing? No? No, okay. These Kork-Ease sandals seem like the natural evolution from Birkenstocks to an even more comfortable/practical sandal and look like they could be pretty cute with a skirt with a lot of buttons on it. My mom said she’d help me sew a button skirt, so I’ll be trying to do that. For those of you without a seamstress on call, Target and Madewell are selling button skirts right now.

  1. The Silk Square Shirt • Everlane • $88
  2. Women’s Kork-Ease Amboy Slide Sandal • $129.95

Hannah's Spring Fashion Wishlist: white jeans, Levi's Wedgie Shorts, and Madewell bandana

I’ve always loved the look of white jeans in the spring and summer but was never confident enough to buy a pair of my own. Now that I’ve been hitting the gym for a few months, this bod might be ready for some all-white denim and, thankfully, Old Navy has a stain-repelling pair available (see them in action on BuzzFeed). For days when my calves can’t be trapped in a denim prison, I’m looking forward to transitioning my fave jeans into warmer weather with Levi’s Wedgie Fit Shorts. Perhaps most controversially, I’m considering trying a spring bandana to wear as a neckerchief. Could be ok, right? It will either be jaunty and cute as hell, or skew way too cowboy. Only one way to find out!

  1. Old Navy Stay White Skinny Jeans
  2. Levi’s Wedgie Fit Shorts
  3. Madewell Bandana

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Obsessions: 10.19.18

You wanna know what we have been decidedly NOT obsessed with in the past month? The blog. Womp womp. We’re hopping back in this week, but we’ll be posting a bit more sporadically for a while. Here’s hoping you all loved getting caught up on Michelle’s driveway gate plans yesterday. See what else we’ve been obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
