DIY Sunglasses Holder
As you can tell, I really love sunglasses.  I tend to lose and/or break them pretty easily because they get crammed in the bottom of my purse or dropped into our key bowl.  To avoid breaking them and to add to our living room gallery wall I made a super simple wood holder then mounted it to the wall with command strips.  I had all of the supplies from wedding projects and other DIYs already, but it's all available at Michaels or another craft store.  I used one, 1/2" wood strip, one 6"x10" pine plank, hot glue, a staple gun, and an X-Acto knife.

I cut 4 wood strips 1" shorter than the short side of the plank.  I doubled them up and hot glued them down, one layer at a time.  I also put in some staples for good measure, though it probably wasn't necessary.  Then the final step is adding a Command Strip (like these) cut in half to fit on the 1/2" strip.

If you are a perfectionist like I am, use a level when you stick it on to the wall.  If you aren't just wing it because these strips let you reposition them.  They work like velcro.  Half of the art in our house is hanging with these guys.  As always if you do this project let me know!  It's so easy & functional!  ♥ Mallory

Outfit - Comfy Cozy
On Tuesday I wore this outfit to stay comfy while making decorations for an adoption shower my parents are hosting Friday.  My aunt & uncle are adopting their son's daughter & her twin teenage half sisters.  He passed away about a year and a half ago.  They're so brave for taking on three young girls while in their 50s!  I'm so proud of them.  Back to the topic at hand... I wore this outfit to help my mom decorate their house.

I wore: Brian's Target hoodie, H&M chambray tunic, Urban Outfitters jeans, Target booties, A Beautiful Mess for Modcloth locket, and heart sunglasses from Walgreens.
Lust List
 It has been a long time since I last posted a Lust List, and I have really missed it!  Lately with school coming to a close I've been daydreaming about weekend roadtrips and camping.  My big vacation this year isn't until December, so I'm sure Brian and I will plan many day trips.  Here are some things I'd like to have so I can travel in style.


If there are men in your life like Brian or my dad, the car will be at lest 5 degrees below your own comfortable temperature.  So I like to wear layers like this Old Navy henley tank and pull-over.  Some cotton shorts like these Madewell chambray ones are the way to go!  Mega comfy but cute shoes like these Supergas are a must.  We all know that some cheapie sunglasses are also important for travel.  I hate losing my nice sunglasses.  I always end up pulling my bangs back while traveling, & I would love to add to my Giant Dwarf collection with this Star Sparkler from ModCloth.

I also need a big bag stuffed with activities like books & sketchbooks.  I have wanted this Marc By Marc Jacobs tote for a while!  I would love to fill it with a Kindle (you can read Kindles in the sunlight), my iPad for movies, and a toy Splitcam.

Are you going on any exciting trips this summer? -Mallory
