Getting Darker

20 Sep 2012 Permalink

I know lots of people having been getting excited for fall.  My sister just told me that she can’t wait to wear scarves and boots…and layers.  I’m always happy for a change, too.  When things are the same for too long, I get bored.  But this time of the year always gets me so down in the dumps!  I can’t stand the sun setting so early…and we haven’t even switched the clocks back yet!

That’s probably why I’ve been wearing sandals every chance I get!  Unless there’s a possibility of getting frostbite on my toes, I’m going to let these little guys enjoy the fall breeze!

Had I not been puttsing around on KUF, reminiscing about being pregnant, I probably would have forgotten that I had this skirt…the skirt that easily doubles as a top…yes, this top is actually a skirt.  Yay for versatile pieces of clothing! 

And if you don’t have a blog showcasing daily outfits, I highly recommend doing something similar…even if it’s just using a camera phone.  Not only can you really tell what styles and cuts work for your silhouette, but you also grasp a better understanding of what’s in your closet.  And who wouldn’t want an archive of personalized outfits to help with those I-don’t-know-what-to-wear days?

Me and My Shadow

This has been my uniform as of late…sweater, jeans, boots, and a statement piece.  Added a belt since the old waist is beginning to make an appearance again (holidays didn’t help there)…and a little red lipstick never hurts either.

Have any fun plans for the weekend?  I’m planning on covering all my windows with those blackout shades so I can trick my daughter into catching some more z’s.  For some reason she insists on waking up as soon as the sun starts to shine…not on mama’s day off!

Bracelet D.I.Y.

08 Dec 2011 Permalink

I have a very hard time letting go of things, so instead of hoarding unused items, I’m trying to be more resourceful with them.  Here’s a diy for a bracelet I reworked using and old bangle, a thin belt (with the backing removed), and a glue gun.

I started by putting a dab of glue on the back of the bangle.  Then I wrapped the belt around it (pulling tightly) and placed a bit of glue at each point.  At the end, I put a final touch of glue…

And, voila, a “new” bracelet!  This little project was super quick (less than 10 mintues), and I didn’t have to go to the store for any supplies.  I love a fun “face lift” on old accessories!  Got any fun diy projects to share??
