Getting my art on

I dressed for comfort today rather than style all that much.  After work I'm going to a mosaic class with my mom and a friend.  We bought a Groupon deal, so figured, why not try it out?  I'm curious, I've done many different art forms before, but never mosaic!  Apparently I'll be making some sort of mirror or something.  I'll be sure to take a picture and post it here!  Anyway, figured something comfy and simple would be good for getting my art side on!

I like Groupon and Living Social deals sometimes, especially for things like classes.  It forces me out of my comfort zone a little bit and gives me opportunity to try something new!  I've done glassblowing, beer and wine tastings, boat rides and now I'll do mosaic!  I've got a deal to go paint your own pottery with my sister in law too and I think we'll be doing that fairly soon as well!

 Blazer - American Eagle, thrifted
Shirt and capris - Motherhood, thrifted
Necklace - S&D with MMD buttonflower
Bracelet - S&D
Shoes - Target

Of course, the best part about Groupon or Living Social too is - you save money over what you'd spend normally.  I can say I don't know that I would have paid full price to go take a mosaic class, but getting a really good deal makes it much more worth it!  Have you ever tried something different through a deal website?

PS - I get nothing for mentioning Groupon and Living Social - just spreading the love because I like them, no compensation here!


  1. You will love mosaicing! I took a stained glass class and it was way too hard and labor intensive so I started to mosaic. I've made vases, candleholders, etc. It is so fun and they make such easy gifts. You can also mix in vintage plates and pottery which is also fun. :) Good luck tonight! I can't wait to see what you make! Also, can you email me your address? I have a package for you! :) xo

  2. Very cute outfit! And I hope you have a great time at your class tonight!!

  3. A mosaic class sounds fun! I don't normally do things like that just because I feel like I am so busy.

    Loving the b&w stripes and olive green capris combo today.

  4. I think the stripey top looks adorable with your bump! And I love trying new classes too. I'm planning to take a macaron baking class once I get over my 'hating all smells' phase and also a prenatal yoga class. :)

  5. You are speaking my language! I love Groupon. We get them to try new places for dinner all of the time. I am in the process of picking one for yoga classes.

    You look cute & have fun tonight!

  6. Ooh the mosaic class sounds like it'll be really fun! Can't wait to see what you make :)

    You look cute and comfy in your striped top!

  8. I've been wanting to take some classes! This one sounds fun, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

  9. I had totally forgotten about Groupon because where I used to live, I couldn't find any deals through there! Now that I'm in a bigger city-- DEALS!!!

  10. Veer very cute outfit! Hope you had fun at the class. Missed talking with you today.

  11. Adorable outfit and that class sounds so fun! Hope you had a blast!!

  12. I remember doing mosaic once in HS... I have the feeling it was labor intensive? But I don't remember all that well so do share your experience! (I do remember I loved the end result!)

  13. I love this blazer Beth! It almost looks like a jean jacket and I LOVE my jean jackets. Haha. Hope all is well!

  14. Can't wait to see your mosaic mirror creation! That sounds like fun!
