DIY Ideas

I am a recent fan of the cape. I really like this DIY because I would never have thought of making my own. It seemed like it would be too complicated.

These CD ornaments would be a perfect gift for a family member!

I love Katherine's cute foxy nail DIY

These coffee cozies look so cute and simple! I really want to try this.

Dress your home up for the holidays with this adorable felt mistletoe DIY!

Outfit: Summery Winter

Most of my fall/winter wardrobe is my summer wardrobe with tights, boots, and a sweater added. Although, I did buy a winter dress (!!) from a thrift a while back. Maybe it is about time to break that out.
Even though this was an accidental eyes shut photo, I sort of like it.
Scarf- Ragstock
Sweater/Boots/Dress- Thrifted
Bag/Socks- Target
Tights- Jo Boxer
I really cannot stress enough how much I adore this bag my sister let me borrow. It fits everything! I am highly considering hunting down other colors.

Blog Crush: Of Corgis and Cocktails

I visit Katherine's blog every single day. Her photos are all so pleasing to the eye, and I am always interested in what she has to say. I find myself skimming a lot of other blogs, but not hers! Also, I think our styles are very similar so I look to her for outfit and hair inspiration.

A few of my favorite posts:

Outfit: Hello, My Name is Chilly

It was so cold out this day! Sometimes I really wish I had a nice indoor location to take photos. Once we get an apartment, things will change. For now, I will brace the chilly weather with hats and hot Starbucks.
I read somewhere online that if you save a photo as a PNG file, the quality will be better when you shrink it down. So that's what I did this time. Do you see any difference?
My hair is getting ridiculous! The mullet is starting to show! I am so proud of myself for not chopping it all off yet.
Shirt- Borrowed from sis (Forever 21)
Cardigan, Bag- Target
Skirt- Christmas gift
Wooden brooch- c/o Bottle of Clouds
Tights- Joe Boxer
Oxfords- Ebay

I actually borrowed this bag from my sister as well as the shirt. We like to trade wardrobes from time to time. Anyways, this bag rules! I can fit everything I need in it! I will definitely do a "What's in my bag" post soon!

Wreaths are so lovely around Christmastime. This simple rosemary wreath DIY will put you in the holiday spirit.

Stuff I Luff #43

I love this Knitted Dove dress from Modcloth! I can never pass up a peter pan collar, especially  pretty lace one.

This is my new favorite style of hat. I used to never like the pom pom on top, but now I adore it. This neapolitan colored one is so adorable.

This locket is so pretty. Megan is such a sweet lady, and her creations are all lovely.

This whole shop is filled with cool nerdy stuff. I love embroidery and I love Zelda, so this brooch is perfection in my eyes.

EEP! These planters make your air plants look like jellyfish! I am in love.

Outfit: Wooden Bowtie

I love this little wooden bow tie so much! I can't wait to wear it a bunch of different ways! I chose to wear it on my belt, to kind of replicate those bow belts I have seen. You can see how Dominick wore it here.
I am in love with this dress, even though it is a tad too big. I bought a size medium, but the deep V neckline is what makes it sort of awkward to wear. I just need better undershirts.
Sweater- Old Navy
Dress- Modcloth 
Belt- Thrifted
Wooden bow tie- Havok Designs
Tights- Jo Boxer
Shoes- Ebay

It seems that my hair is growing overnight! I just bought a nice winter hat to hide it away in. I am so glad I decided to grow it out during the winter.
