My not a she-shed, she-shed

shorts & sweater: c/o shein

Welcome to my new space and fancy mirror! This summer we transformed our old chicken coop/barn to a workout/hang out space.  You could call it a she-shed, but Chris didn't love that term since he wants to use it too.  But that's exactly what it is and I could not be happier.  I need to take some pictures of it and share! For now here's one side, and some super cute Fall and Winter looks from Shein.  This sweater and shorts set is adorable.  The sweater is perfect with jeans and together they are only $15!!

leopard pajamas: c/o shein

Another matching pajama set? Yes please.  When I put these on Addi told me she loved them and wanted to match, so I found a similar set for girls on Amazon.  

leggings: c/o shein

These leggings are comfortable and I love the color.  I will say the mesh part on the side goes around that back.  It's tiny holes and you can't really see through, but I probably wouldn't wear them to a gym. Luckily for a million months I've been working out for home and will keep wearing them!

grey sweatshirt: c/o shein

This is one of my favorite sweatshirts from Shein.  It's so comfortable and I love the collar and zipper.  It comes in a lot of perfect fall/winter colors too!

cardigan: c/o shein

We went from summer to way cold so fast.  Which while there are a lot of negatives, a positive is that it's time to whip out all the sweaters and cardigans.  This one I love! 

jacket: c/o shein

It also means it's  time for all the fuzzy jackets.  Love the color of this one, and it's really soft on the inside.  Plus it's only $22. 

pink sweater: c/o shein

Another cute sweater for Fall.  The sleeves are fun and I love the higher neck. It's under $20 and comes in a lot of pretty colors. 

cardigan & pants: c/o shein

I saw a set like this on a few shops last year and every time debated buying it.  I was hesitant because this says one size fits all.  But it fits and I love it so much.  The waist band is stretchy and the rest of the pants are pretty loose.  I love the cardigan and can't wait to wear these together and separate.

henley: c/o shein 

I love tops like this.  Easily worn with jeans, or leggings.  Super comfortable. Easy to layer with a cardigan or a vest.  It's $15 and comes in a lot of other colors. 

hooded sweatshirt: c/o shein

This sweatshirt is a little thicker which I like, since I'm hoping we'll be spending a lot of time outside this Fall and Winter, and I'll need all the layers.  Love the buttons on the top and the length!

Homeschool Room

I am sure like everybody with school aged kids, this is not how I thought this school year would go.  Since last March, Addi has been home doing e-learning.  After the first few weeks of school, we made the decision to do half day e-learning, half day homeschooling.  So she does math and social studies/science with her class online and then I do homeschool with her for the rest of her subjects. It still is not what I wish this year looked like but I think it is the best choice we could make with the situation.  I'm thankful for our playroom space so we were able to make a designated "school" space.  (Even though at least half of it occurs on the floor!)  

When I was redecorating and rearranging things before school started, I wanted a world map to hang over the piano and looked at Hobby Lobby, Target, Amazon, Goodwill and didn't find one I liked that wasn't insanely expensive.  I was so excited when PHOTOWALL reached out to me about reviewing one of their products, because I found this beautiful map that works perfect for our playspace/homeschool area.  There are so many beautiful prints to pick from, it was so hard for me to choose.  You can have any print put on a canvas, framed or put on a hanger like I chose.  I love how it turned out!

It also came at the perfect time because last week we learned about different kinds of maps and the kids had fun finding the countries on the map and trying to figure out what the cute little pictures stood for in each area.  

PHOTOWALL also has some of the prettiest wallpaper and wall murals.  I was so close to picking something like this print, but was a little nervous to commit.  Now I keep thinking about I need it for either Addi's room or my new she shed space!  There are some gorgeous prints that would look amazing! And the wallpaper print is completely customizable to the exact size you need for your space.
