lovin me some stripes

For some reason I find all of these pictures really awkward haha. Sometimes hubster takes a few pictures and he's like "oh yeah! there's definitely some good ones, let's go inside." So then I'm sitting on the couch, flipping through photos on my camera with a look similar to this -_- good photos, riiiiight. 

Well these were the best where my eyes weren't really squinty, half closed, my hands weren't flailing around, etc. 

Where I got it:
Scarf- Target
Shirt- Ross
Jeans- Hollister

Changing my blog name:

I'm sure you guys noticed that I changed the name of my blog. I kept thinking about it because "The How to Blog" sounds like a DYI blog. Aaaaand I'm really not that crafty. I felt like I kept having to think of tutorials and projects to do when my real passion is fashion and inviting you all into my life with quirky stories about Josh and I. 

So that's why I decided on "Fashion, Love & Lauren". Hopefully you guys all like it, and I personally find it more catchy so I'm a big fan.


Missy from "Color That"

Now I"m going to talk to you a little about my friend Missy. Mrs Missy made my last header for "The How to Blog" which I loved. She is so extremely talented in graphic design, just take a look at her blog here, she designed the whole thing herself. 

Just in case you forgot what my old header looked like, here it is.

Missy hand drew the entire thing, and did an amazing job and I think all of that time and effort should not go unnoticed. So check out her blog, "Color That" and show her a little love because she's just starting out and definitely deserves some attention.
