1. Pretty kid’s portrait

Mommy’s Diary:: Stylish Girls

Some recent pins from my “Baby” board on Pinterest.  I need to rename it to “Kids” or something, as Kiko grows up, I am pinning more and more toddler stuff these days. I love these little girl’s outfits. So sassy and chic. Because of the amount of time Kiko spends with Andy, she is always in sweatpants and t-shirts, but I am making her a pink coat that matches with mine. Can’t wait to share the progress of the coat!

NYFW pinspiration by vivat veritas

I enjoyed the NYFW photos that popped up on my instagram and Pinterest readers last week. Did you follow the NYFW? What was your favorite?
1. Can’t get enough of the all white outfit. Joie Spring 2014.
2. Alexander Wang always offers fresh and new take on the yearly trend. I don’t know how wearable this is, but still like the new way to show off the midriff.
3. I love the jumpsuit and colorful tote combination from the NYFW street style snap.
4. Such a stylish mom-to-be!
5. Colorful and boxy silhouette outfits from J. Crew.
6. Midi length skirts were everywhere in the NYFW street style. This one with jewels all over is amazing, combined with a white tank and colorful clutch. This midi skirt is also my favorite.

vivat veritas home inspiration from pinterestIf you follow me on Pinterest, you might know that I’m OBSESSED with Pinterest now. Whenever I have a second, I go on the Pinterest app on my iPhone and browse through all the fun images! It is so addictive. I am into home decor and DIY particularly because I am moving into a new place in a few days. Here are some favorites from this week:
1. I love the idea of preparing a fun cart with goodies for the overnight guest.
2. Great idea for using an old drawer. I also like this idea.
3. DIY scallop edge pillow. Andy and I always fight over who take the pillows. We need more pillows for the new home!
4. I can’t get enough of plants.
5. We will have a small eat-in kitchen at a new place. This is a good layout for a small kitchen.
6. DIY rug!

Pinspiration:: 08/22/2013

vv pinspirationI haven’t done any inspiration posts for a while, partly because I stopped saving inspirational images on my desktop folder. Instead, I’ve been using Pinterest to organize interesting things around the inter-web. I’ll be posting my weekly favorites on the blog, as I think they are too good not to share! Your all on Pinterest, right?

1. I’ve seen many chair upholstering DIYs, but this one is so far my favorite! Plus, you can always find these fold-up chairs in thrift stores.
2. “Dip” photography print by Max Wagner
3. Celtic hair knot tutorial. This is a nice change from braids and twists.
4. Intimidated to wear cropped tops? Layer a cardigan on top like this. I also like the top & pants set.
5. Next VV photoshoot inspiration… Love the plain white background, dipped chair legs and big flower on hair.
6. Free pattern drafting calculator for your measurements. I’m curious to try.
