A Little Bit of Floral

Blouse: Pink Blush | Skirt: Forever 21 | Boots: Pink Blush | Purse: H&M | Sunglasses: Forever 21

Although it is winter I still love a little floral in my life! I got this blouse from Pink Blush & I adore it! It's the perfect mix to be able to wearing in both the summer/winter! I simply paired it with a pencil skirt I grabbed at Forever 21 and called it a day. But let's not skim over the fact that I am OBSESSED with these boots! They are also from Pink Blush and I love everything about them! I paired them with this outfit to kind of dress it down a little bit! 

PS - I will add all the links later tonight! I am backing up my computer to Dropbox and it is taking 3 DAYS! I don't know if that's normal but I'm dying haha! So I can't link anything up right yet!

Easy Christmas (Paint Swatch) Garland

I'm not the most crafty person in the world but I do enjoy making a few little things here & there! I have heard tons of people talking about all the fun things they can do with paint swatches from the store (Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart) and I thought I would make a little garland to hang around the house. Okay, now here is my disclaimer: I am a very neutral decorator. So I usually decorate for Christmas with white, gold, and silver! That's it, that's my theme. But now with my baby getting older I feel that I need to make it more traditional Christmas Colors with red & green popping everywhere! I remember when I was a kid my mom always went above and beyond to decorate and it was always so festive! I want the same for my kids. How boring would white, gold, and silver be for them? Poor things. So I have added plenty of color this year with the garland to top it off! 

I am going to list step-by-step what I did but it's also VERY easy! As far as paint swatches go, I grabbed mine from Home Depot. I asked the lady behind the paint desk if I was allowed to take a few for a craft and she said of course! take all you want! So if you are worried about them caring or being annoyed, THEY ARENT, they support our crafting! 

Here is what you need:

Paint Swatchesin the colors you want (I used Ralph Lauren & got 2 punches out of each swatch) 
Paper Punch - in the shape you wish. You could do snow flakes, Christmas Trees, I choose circles so I can use it again. 
Hot Glue Gun 

Step One: Punch out all your shapes 

Step Two: Space them out and put a dot of hot glue on each punch. Then attach the string. Note: if you are going to be hanging it on a mirror you will want to glue a punch to each side. Or else you will see the back of you punch in the mirrors refection. You can see what I'm talking about in the picture below

Step Three: You're finished! It's now time to hang! Be careful, it will tangle! 

Final Product! So easy right? And you can fold them up & keep them for next year!

Sweater Season

Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Hudson | Chambray: TopShop
Purse: Boutique (similar) | Shoes: Vince Camuto | Sunglasses: Ray Ban
I find myself loving to layer, whether it's summer or winter layering is always my game. A lot of times I will simply wear a plain long sleeve tee under a sweater for extra warmth but I also love layering with a flannel or button up. I do feel like this style was a lot more popular last year but I still love it! I have also linked up a couple of my favorite sweaters this season (hint: some maybe on sale)!

Jeans: BlankNYC | Shirt: BP | Jacket: Windsor (sold out - similar, similar) | Hat: H&M (similar)  
Booties: Forever 21 | Purse: Topshop (last year - similar, similar) | Lipstick: MAC (Heirlum)

If you guys have been following me for awhile you know I am a sucker for the classic B&W combo! I also love throwing a little boho in so that's what I got with today's outfit! I am totally in love with these jeans that I picked up from Nordy's! The best thing about them is that they are LINED! So you aren't going to get any skin showing through, which is so nice for these chilly days! They also run really true to size! I love mixing "styles" and even more than that I love wearing hats! Win, win for me! Enjoy!
