With the 4th just around the corner, it’s time to get your Betty Ross on! Carhartt Women’s Tomboy Hooded Vest is perfect for sporting your American pride. All you need is scrap fabric, paint, and thread. Stitch up a storm and you have your outfit for Independence Day. Whatever your holiday activities may be, this is a great outfit. It’s ideal for fishing, boating, bbq-ing, etc… My favorite thing about this vest is the media port to deal with those headphone wires easily.

Today is such a gorgeous day! Get out there and enjoy it! Gardening is one of the best stress relievers. Bring some spring into your home today with this DIY. This is a perfect opportunity to wear something from the Carhartt Force line. The shirt I’m wearing in the photos above is designed for work. It wicks sweat, fights odors, and has stain release qualities. How cool is that?

It’s remarkable that the gas, dust, and stars that make up galaxies can be so breathtaking– so many colors and twinkling lights. Make a little bit of outer space your own by painting a T-shirt in it’s likeness.

This week’s craft revolves around silhouettes and form. Stop by your local hardware store and see if they give away their scrap wood for free. Turning trash into treasure is great for your wallet and much more satisfying. As far as taking a photo to use as a guide for the silhouette,
make sure to wear something that defines your body. I wore my Bainbridge Jacket because the princess seams along the sides create a very flattering, hour-glass shape. Also, try wearing your hair up in a pony tail or bun to help define your outline. Cameos and other silhouettes are typically black and white. Maybe try mixing in other colors or leave the natural wood exposed.

Sometimes You Just Need to Make a Mess

One of my best stress relievers is painting— how the paint moves around the canvas naturally, flowing together in some places and beautifully discordant elsewhere.

When I paint, I throw on a pair of Carhartt bib overalls. Since I’m the master of making a mess when I get into arts and crafts mode, they are the perfect thing to wear. I don’t mind when paint splatters on them. In fact, I kind of love it. It shows that they are well loved and I remember all the things I’ve made while wearing them.

Another reason why they are perfect for us ladies is that the clasp that hooks the strap onto the button in front is flat so that it doesn’t catch onto long hair. (We all know how much it can hurt when your hair gets caught while working.)
