SELFMADE SKIRT (SIMILAR CIRCLE SKIRT) | CAMO TEE | SIMILAR BOOTS | JACKET | CLUTCH | SUNNIES

In an attempt to dare Mother Nature to make it any colder, I skipped the tights this weekend.. And she came back at me with a snowstorm. So here I guess she wins this one. To counteract my extremely frozen legs, I wore Charlie’s big puffy warm jacket because let’s face it, there is nothing quite like stealing your boyfriend’s clothes! He always says that I steal his clothes before he even has a chance to wear them. He might be right but I just like to think of it as a second, much more cozier wardrobe! :)

Happy Thursday!

Mohawk Fishtail Braid Tutorial

Fauxhawk and Fishtail braid tutorial

I recently saw this hairstyle in a magazine and love the edginess of it! I don’t wear my hair up very often so I thought it would be fun to change things up a bit. And it is super easy and can be done on tons of different lengths of hair. I actually think this would be tons cuter on someone with shorter hair, but I just couldn’t bring myself to whip out the scissors and chop it off just for this style.. So you are in luck ladies with cute little lobs!

As for how to do it.. 1. section the top part of your hair from temples to the crown of your head, basically where you would have a mohawk, and pin it up. Pull the rest of your hair into a ponytail. 2. Fishtail your ponytail and pull it apart so it looks undone and thick. 3. Unclip the rest of your hair and twist it back towards your ponytail and wrap it around the elastic. 4. Pin in place, pull at the mohawk a little so it has more volume, and get sassy because girl, you look fierce ;)

Black and Gray and a Pop of Pink

BLACK JEANS | SIMILAR JACKET | TSHIRT | PINK LIPSTICK | VINTAGE HAT | SIMILAR BOOTIES

So when Charlie and I went to Florida we took tons of photos and I have them all but I think I might hold off on posting them yet because… it hurts my heart a little to see photos of me on the beach when it is like ten degrees outside.. Instead I am going to carry on with my winter wardrobe until it is a suitable time to actually think that summer is near (which I am hoping is MUCH sooner rather than later!).

As for this look, who doesn’t love a simple monochrome outfit with a pop of color. This lipstick I had buried at the bottom of my makeup bag and just recently rediscovered. And I am in love again. How vibrant and pretty is it! I love the idea of brightening up these dreary winter days a bit with some fun lipstick!

Hope you are all having a great week :)

DIY Valentine’s Day Arrows

Anthropologie knock off Valentine's day arrows (diy tutorial)

So Valentine’s day.. Of course I love it because if anyone loves love, I do. But I have never been that mushy about it. Charlie and I have had a handful to celebrate together and each time we just do something special like make a nice dinner and sometimes (hint hint) he gets me flowers which is my favorite thing ever. But this is our first Valentine’s day living together and I thought it would be fun if I made a few cute little decorations to put around the apartment!

I saw these cute little arrows at Anthropologie and knew that they would make the best decorations that aren’t overly Valentine’sy but pretty and unique. You can make a handful of these in a few hours, so give it a try and in the end I promise these little arrows will, at least, make you smile (as long as you aren’t still in Grinch mode from Christmas).

1. Materials: fabric of your choice (you won’t need a lot at all), barbecue skewers, thread, needle or sewing machine

2. Cut out triangles in your fabric. Sew the long sides of the triangle, leaving the bottom undone.

3. Flip the triangle so that the seams are on the inside, using the skewer to poke the top out.

4. Sew the bottom of the triangle and poke the skewer through the sewn seam. This will be a tight fit and will keep it on the top of it.

5. This is the creative part. Cut out the “feathers” from your fabric and then stitch around it so that it outlines the shape. I added lines to make it look more like a feather, but you can be as creative as you want here. You should also use a contrasting thread so that you can really see these lines!

6. Using your thread to attach the feathers to your skewer.

7. Double knot the thread and put it through your fabric first. Then wrap the thread around your fabric and skewer, securing them together. Loop it through the thread and knot at the end.

8. Put your absolutely adorable knew arrows on your table or wall and get in that Valentine’s day spirit, because all you need is love!

BRA TOP | SIMILAR SHORTS | CHANEL PURSE | SIMILAR HEELS | SIMILAR HAT | SUNNIES | FLASH TATTOOS

If you follow me on instagram, you know that Charlie and I went to Florida last weekend and it was absolutely amazing. It was 80 degrees and sunny everyday and seriously made me question why I live in the Northeast.. We came back to it being about ten degrees and snowing! UGH! But while we were there I took as many photos as possible because I couldn’t bear the thought of coming back and having to pose in this crazy weather! This is one of my favorite outfits from the weekend because it is so minimal but has a cool factor to it. And these flash tattoos. Can you get enough? I can’t! I am so obsessed and want it to be summer right now so I can show them off!
