Calling all artsy graphic tee lovers! This Mona Lisa bubblegumhttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf tee is only $9, comes in so many colors (I esp like the hunter green, gray, black, and pink!) and you can use my exclusive discount Q4TheClassy15 (Extra 15% off any purchase, valid from October 1st- December 31th, only US site: https://us.shein.comhttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf).

I paired this tee with my red wool jacket that was my grandma’s. So clearly you can’t find that one anymore, but luckily I found a similar one that I’ll link herehttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf!

This photo was taken earlier this month at our local mid-morning stomping ground, Barnes & Noble. Usually I work while Beckett walks around with Wellesley. I like it because it’s a nice change of scenery. Beckett likes it because, well, books. 🙂

I wanted to say thank you on here for the outpouring of love and support my business, ClassyArtistBox.com has gotten lately. It is such a blessing to have you all cheering me on, ordering, sharing, and talking us up. Sometimes I feel so alone trying to run an online business and it feels so good when I hear positive feedback & feel the love. Along with the love and support of my family, it’s what keeps driving me.

Speaking of family, my little Wellesley Bea randomly came down with quite the bug today. She seemed totally normal all morning and then around 10AM she started getting cuddly and sleepy so naturally, I napped & cuddled her until I woke up around noon and realized she was super warm. Long story short, she has a fever and has been vomiting. It makes me so sad to see my kids sick. 😭 If you think of it, we would absolutely love prayers that she would feel better soon.

The fever/vomiting combo reminded me of when Wolfgang had strep at this age and it went misdiagnosed for so long that an ER dr told us it could have been really bad if we hadn’t brought Wolfie back and insisted on a strep test. He was totally lethargic and the fever reducers had stopped working. So we took Wellesley in right away today to rule out strep.

Here is a picture of the kids the other day.

The love to “work” on their computers in their cubicle. Haha

Summer Sequins

Hey peeps, these are some pictures from my lovely birthday celebrations that happened last week after our day of cleaning!
We picked up Wolfgang from Beckett’s mom’s house and went out to eat at PF Chang’s because Chinese food is my ultimate pregnancy craving right now.
It was really fun to get to chill out and shop around afterwords too except for when the girls in the Victoria’s Secret (Fountains at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove) were rude and not helpful. That kinda put a damper on the evening for a moment, but we didn’t let it spoil our fun for long!
We found the cutest thing for Wolfgang at a shop there…keep scrolling to see what it was!!!!
This William Sonoma Apron kit from Pottery Barn Kids, now sold out, but similar is linked!
My dress is from when I was pregnant with Little Boy, but I found a few similar maternity options as well as a few options that are for you regular girls- haha! I’ll link all of them below!

Sunglasses: BP Women’s $14 @Nordstrom
Sandals: Tory Burch Sandals–this is my color, but here’s another TB pair I adore… you’ll see why when you look at them!

Bag: mine is a vintage coach bag so I can’t find the exact, but here’s a similar version AND another by Dooney and Bourke that is ostrich and soooooo gorgeous!!!!
 

Beckett and I cleaned a lot on my b-day, but I also spent time painting because I needed to get some paintings out so we stopped for a quick photoshoot on our way out the door! These embryos are now at their home in Colorado! It makes me happy to know my art is going into homes in other states and that it will make the families happy who will look at the paintings for years to come!

My handsome dinner dates!

5 Ways to Stay Classy in Flannel

 
fall-booties-plaid-shirt-classic-style-classy-fashion-the-classy-artist-with-old-navy-vest-cute1. Layer a vest or chic sweater over the shirt to add another stylistic element into the mix. Layers=good. I love this vest because of the gold zipper and perfect fit.
 
2. Pair it with a seasonally appropriate color of pants instead of blue jeans. Why does this work? Everyone expects you to look like that classic farm girl in flannel and jeans, but you don’t have to! Add some unexpected pants or a skirt in a fun color (my favorite color skirt to wear with plaid is hot pink).

silly-picture-for-classic-plaid-how-to-make-plaid-more-classy-this-fall
3. Jazz things up with a bow or sparkly, expensive looking jewelry! You can never go wrong with bows or pretty jewelry.
(I had to add this pic above because… ponytail flip. lol)fall-trends-classic-style-with-plaid-shirt-and-vest-old-navy-ag-jeans-and-wedges

4. Add heels (or at least booties). If you’re on your feet all day like I was as a teacher, I recommend wedges or a comfy pair of the chunky heeled booties that are popular now. If you just cannot wear heels for whatever reason, there are TONS of stylish booties out this Fall

5. Do sleek, gorgeous hair and Makeup. Think glam curls & a smoky eye. For example, MY hair in this post looks horrendous and is not how you want your hair to look when you wear plaid. Believe it or not, I had gorgeous curls, a side braid, and lots of volume before we shot this…. in the rain. YES, it was raining. I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures, but there was a light sprinkle happening at that time– something the weather’s been doing a lot these days here in sunny MN. I thought I could beat the humidity by wearing a curled ponytail instead of my hair down like I normally do, but alas… hair fail. 😛

An alternative title for this post could be How to Not Look Like You Were Raised in a Barn While Wearing One of Fall’s Most Popular Trends: Flannel, but that would have been too long. And I decided it wasn’t good to insult barn dwellers right in the title of my post. But if you were raised in a barn, please comment below and tell me what it is like to sleep with such noisy animals. 😉

Outfit details:

Flannel shirt: 6pm.com || Vest: Old Navy || Pants: old, from my sis-in-law but I REALLY LOVE THESE  because they would be a surefire way to dress up plaid! But if you’re not in to the leather look, here are some very similar to mine for under $60 || Booties: last season Dolce Vita, here’s the updated style under $50 (real leather!!) || Cross body: vintage Coach, newer version here, less expensive (yet AMAZING) style here  and $50 real leather style here || Bow: mine is from my grandma, but they’re selling them now at places like F21 and Urban Outfitters || Earrings: BaubleBar from last year, similar here! I regret not getting a better shot of the earrings, but I haveta tell yuh– I recommend the BaubleBar brand because their earrings are so adorable and well made. Having quality jewelry is important to me because I’m allergic to nickel and cheap jewelry has a coating that wears off after a few times wearing the jewelry and then my ears literally bleed. Sorry, tmi, but true.

Ok, cue stories of barns…
