What I Wore: Tribal Print

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Couple weeks ago while thrifting I came across a tribal print shirt.
Snatched it up for $3.50 at Goodwill and the tag says Wet Seal
{like a Forever 21}

Apparently tribal print is really hot right now.
I know, I was shocked to. Pinterest helped me find a ton of inspiration.
Here is my inspiration for my outfit.



Here is the outfit I tried to recreate.


Tribal shirt: Goodwill $3.50
Shorts: American Eagle - my closet
Shoes: Rugged Wearhouse- $6.99

I love this shirt. It's perfect for a hot summer day!
This is what I wore to a cookout last night and actually made a cake.
I think it turned out good!

July 4th Cake

Love the star sprinkles and the middle was super easy to do!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Front Porch

Happy Monday!
It's FINISHED! I have been working on getting my front porch pretty for summer,
well yesterday I finally finished it!

**Go figure my camera charger is missing! So these pictures are taken from my cell phone**
Sorry guys for the bad quality

Take a look

{My Front Porch}

Flowers are Petunias, Impatiens, Double Impatients, & something else LOL I can't remember
I found all the pots from my local Goodwill for $1-2 each.
The yellow pot came with the flower.
Wreath I made from crepe paper and felt.

{Side View}

FYI: That hanging basket was on clearance for $5 at Lowes
SCORE! originally $25
USA sign hanging in the window bought at Dollar Tree for $1

{Side View}

Pinwheels: Pink one is from the Dollar Tree
& the red white & blue one is from the dollar isle at Target.

{Watering Can & Planter Stand}

Found the watering can on Saturday at a Yard Sale for $2
That's the $3 plant stand from Goodwill I mentioned on Tuesday.
And that's the $.50 pot I recovered with the $2 fabric from Goodwill.

So what ya think??
I love how my porch looks, I was so happy when the neighbor next door complimented me on how good it looks!
That totally made my day!

What projects or crafts do you have planned for this week?
