Fall 2015 Trend: LAYERING

 How I took 4 shirts and created 12 different looks

When I go shopping for my 5 year old son its hard to find cute and fun clothing. Especially compared to what I see in the girls clothing department. A way I have leaned to take less and turn it into more is: LAYERING. Layering items that are already in your child's closet, or bought from a  collection like the items featured in this blog post; is an easy way to step up the game on how your child's outfit comes together. These four items easily came together, because they were all purchased form the same collection (which I have never done before). Taking items that are already in your child's closet and mix and matching the items can revamp your child's wardrobe, and style. Too often I have been stuck in a rut of just putting a shirt on my son and calling it good, layering is  a great way of having fun as well as changing up the look of the same few items. 

All clothing was bought from:
Currently there is free shipping on a $75 or more purchase

The Low Down on Lukes Room Tour

Dinosaur Bedroom

Decorating is one of my many hobbies that I cant always afford to keep up with. So when it came time to transition my four year old sons bedroom from a toddler sailboat themed bedroom, to a big boy dinosaur bedroom, I couldn't have done it over night. On our budget it took a lot of planning and preparing months in advance to get his room started. We got the majority of his room completed in March of 2014, but I made some purchases as early as September of 2013. I purchased his bedding at Target it is the Roar and Stop collection, and most of his wall art was purchased from Hobby Lobby. These items can be seen in this haul video.

Above  the picture is of items I purchased in September, months before we were able to start his new room.
  • We ended up finding the Roar and Stomp quilt and pillow cover for $20 at some point at Target. 
  • I found the pillow on clearance for $8.

I spent lots of time pinning what I wanted for his room on a Pinterest board I created called "dino bedroom".

Deciding on a wall color  

This image I found on Pinterest help for the inspiration for the wall color we choose a shade of green that was from the Behr paint collection form Hope Depot. We choose an eggshell finish. We still intend on adding molding around the center of the room.

The big purchases for his room were going to be his twin bed and mattress. His bed can be seen here Bed . We already had the matching dresser.

DIY Jewerly Holder

I found three fun plates on clearance at Target this spring. I purchased the clear candle holders from my local dollar tree. We put them together with some super glue. Now I have a fun holder for my perfume, and jewelry. This could also be used for cup cakes or food.

A nice button down was a must have for me. The trouble was fining one that fit my body right. I love this poka dot one I found at Old Navy. If I remember correctly it was under $15, but it looks best on me opened up.
