A New Look!

Sometimes you just feel better when you freshen things up a bit, right? A new pedicure for example or a new haircut or a new outfit. A little mini-makeover makes everything fun and exciting! Kristen at Simply Klassic Home and Simply Klassic Blog Design (the great gal who created my original blog layout ) has been hard at work dealing with me and my indecision. She is wonderful, and I truly can't recommend her enough if you need anything bloggy done!



You may noticed a few changes here on Hems with Her (or you may not, so I am glad I am telling you about said changes so you will notice them!). I've got a new, sleeker header and a new pun-tastic tag line. Ooooh. Aaaaah. Thank you, thank you.



You may also notice I've got some new tabs. My old tabs weren't as functional as I wanted them to be, so I am working on re-organizing my posts to make them easier to search through and to give them cute names. Which one do you think I thought was more important?

This is how most of my photo shoots with Sean in attendance seem to go!


The Curvy Closet will house general plus-size fashion posts, like my Occasionally Stylish Series and posts like the one about bras or tomorrow's post on fall fashion! Under Dress Your Curves you will find my daily outfit posts. And finally under the Curves with Confidence tab, you will find the post that deal with body issues and matters of confidence and self-esteem. These posts may include outfits, but many of my more serious pieces will be under this tab. I tend to write a lot about these issues,l so I wanted them housed together. These tabs aren't quite functional yet, but they should be up and running by Friday morning!

He said he was pretending to be a crab... I didn't ask!


Finally you may notice that my skirt is blindingly white in today's photos... huh, guess my white balance was off or something!

I DID notice the new blog design and I LOVE it! Your new tabs sound great too. Sean is funny, kinda reminds of some other kids I know ;)

Love the new look - ESPECIALLY that tagline- haha! It looks very clean, and agreed that it’s nice to freshen things up. Sean is hysterical- love these pictures!

Hooray for the new design! I've been wanting to get a professional design done, but it just isn't in the budget right now, and a few other things take precedence over it (like a new computer). Your son is so adorable. I love that last picture because you've got the most genuine smile laughing at him:)

I love the new header and the new organizing tabs sound great! Your son is too cute with his funny faces in the background :)

The new header and tabs looks great! And I love the new tagline! Nothing better than a good pun. haha Sean is hilarious! I'm off to check out your other posts I've missed this week. I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday, again! I have been really lazy about posting this summer. It's been too nice outside to sit in the house blogging. I might put together a quick, Pinterest outfits only, Frivolous Fashion Friday post today. We'll see. ; )

Haha, he's so cute pretending to be a crab! It's better to just not question it. LOVE the new design and layout. And yes, I was very impressed by the pun! :)

I love this outfit! I usually stay away from plain t-shirts but I really love this look! One more thing I can add to my wish list! :)

D'Rae said...

Love the new look! I am needing one myself but just haven't decided what I want done yet.....

I like the new header- and I did notice right away! I always have an issue with photographing white. I assume most of the issue is my camera and then the rest of the issue is definitely operator (me) error!

LOVE the new updates on your blog! I'm an organization freak and a perfectionist (obviously a Virgo) so I love when I can find something new to organize or tweak. I honestly love when I make the slightest changes to my blog, because I feel like it's always an improvement (even if I'm the only one who notices). Looks great!

Sean's rendition of a crab is really cute. :) I like this all-neutrals look and the layered necklaces. :) And the blog redesign is fantastic!

Alice said...

I love the new layout, the mix of new (like that gorgeous header) but keeping similar colours and you post title font is a great way of doing it. You're blog is still recognizable, just prettier. Also, this outfit rocks xo

Maria said...

Grey is such a neutral color and yet it looks nice on you. Good choice with the belt! It looks like a relaxed and comfortable outfit. As for colors, red and turquoise look smashing good on you. You always look your best in dresses and when you pick the right colors you look really great.

Jupe_Cambria said...

I'm crushing on your new blog design! Could use some serious help w mine :P And your white skirt looks fantastic for this week's excruciatingly hot weather.

Grey is a great color on you! I look terrible in it, so of course I love it. :p

Also, way cute shoes!

Sarah With A Bow said...

I'm really amused by the awesome faces going on behind you, there. Hehe. I assume your outfit is cute, but I can't see over that blinding light around the place where your skirt should be (KIDDING!). :P You look simple and the styling is clean. I can dig it. (:

Marissa said...

I love the new look! :)

Chris said...

OH MY your kid kills me! I just love him in the background!

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

I love this outfit, and I'm so excited for your redesign!

Atthepinkofperfection said...

Love the layout and design. You're just awesome! ;) The tag line is fab too- I'm not creative at all.

Lynne said...

You remind me my gray Tahari tee needs to get out more! Love your photo bomber :)

.hello. lj said...

Okay, the new tag line is my favorite thing ever! And I love the new tabs! So great! She did a fabulous job yet again!

Alanna said...

I'm way behind on blogs...I love the new look :)
And your little guy is cracking me up, that's exactly what my son does in every picture I take, he's a ninja or pirate...never a four year old ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks so much! Four-year-old boys are the best! They are so creative and fun!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks, LB! I'm glad you like it! Kristen is awesome!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

He's my favorite little photo bomber! I don't mind too much ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Well, I had a little help from my husband. He's way more witty than me!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Well, you inspired it. So thank you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you! I think he's a keeper!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks, Marissa!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Still seeing spots??? ;P

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I love working with Kristen. She is awesome AND affordable! And really works with your vision!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Yay! That's exactly what I was going for! Thanks so much Alice!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks, Carrie! He is so creative. I love this age!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I meant to respond to this a week ago!! I am a Virgo too, so I know EXACTLY what you mean! Especially about just tweaking little things! When's your birthday?

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

There is definitely an operator error going on here too. I will have to get pointers form real photographers!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I love switching things up. If I knew how to do it, I'd probably change it every week!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Definitely Maria! They can be dressed up or down!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Sorry I am late to respond to this, but thank you so so much! We were pretty proud of that pun!
