Happy Memorial Day to everyone! Mauvin’ Monday will be back next Monday. As you can see, Andrew started to celebrate early! Hope you have a fantastic day with your family.
I’ve got good news for you guys out there! We’ve got a guest post by the wonderful Leigh-Ellen today!
I love how bold she is with color, and I know you will to. :-)
P.S : Do I spy a Michael Kors handbag in the last photo?
Hello Vintage Mauve Readers! I’m Leigh-Ellen and I blog over at Little Waterlily in a Big Pond. I’m excited that Jessica is letting me takeover her little piece of the internet and that she’s posting over on mine. My blog began as a way to keep in touch with friends and family scattered around the world and has been growing slowly from there. My husband, two cats, golden retriever and I live on the east coast of Canada.

I’m definitely not a fashion blogger but I like sharing clothes and having an excuse to take photos when I get dressed up. Since starting the blog I’ve realized I tend to have go-to “outfits”.
Blogging has challenged me to mix it up more since I don’t want to be sharing the same 5 outfits over and over! So today I thought I’d share three different ways I’ve worn my new yellow skirt.
I first wore this Apostrophe skirt when I took part in a fun fashion show for a local boutique called Rowena’s. The top is too flowy for my usual taste. I have curves and if they don’t show I tend to feel like a puffball. However I love the yellow and orange together. I need to get some orange pieces to wear it with.
I didn’t buy that top but I did find another one on the racks post-fashion show that I decided would make a fun work outfit.
This past weekend was gorgeous and sunny. I wanted to wear my new skirt out for dinner but also wanted outfit photos for the blog. I needed to change it up again.
So I’ve owned the skirt for less than a month and that’s how I’ve styled it so far. Thanks for letting me hang out with you today. Feel free to stop by and say hi at my blog.
I’ve been wanting to tackle the office for so long. It’s become our dumping ground for projects and everything we own. It’s so easy to just throw it into the office, shut the door and pretend like everything is pretty and perfect in the house. But of course, you open up the office door and it’s like a bomb went off. Not ideal, by any means. I knew I really wanted to get the Expedit book-case and with the desk attached as a work surface for projects. With all of the storage, it would make things so much more organized! So, we headed on over to Ikea with our shopping list in hand. Our list was our savior because we probably could have gotten off course about 20 times. So much to look at! But, time is of the essence when school is in session – so must stay focused! We got through the gallery in about an hour, which is pretty impressive. However, the market place took a little longer…especially when it comes to actually getting our boxes.
I wonder how much they sell him for? Oh, it says it right on the label. Only 35 dollars! What a bargain. Enough funny business – time to get down to the nitty gritty. We started to assemble the pieces the next day since we knew it was going to be quite the en devour. A few hours and a few breaks of frustration later – we had ourselves a finished product.
Ta-da! What do you think?
