Gray

I'm all about the gray, bout the gray, no color. Ok, kidding - but seriously, I feel like I never wear any color! That's fine by me though, because a earth toned pallet allows for more mixing and matching options. 


As you can see, it's been a bit chilly around here lately. Thankfully, warmer temps have resurfaced and brought life back into my cold bones! This H&M coat is the perfect piece to help me stay warm (and fashionable), though. I just love the wool blend and mix of grays, black, and white. It's the perfect touch to an all gray ensemble - and, of course these boots are my a Winter's dream.

Happy Friday!

Print Mixing: Stripes + Plaid

If this scarf looks familiar, it's because I haven't stopped wearing it since I scooped it up at Zara (and I've posted it on Instagram a bazillion times ever since) #sorrynotsorry 

It's versatile, and the color patten goes with just about anything. Trust and believe this isn't the last you've seen of it - or these boots either. ;)


By the way, can we talk about print mixing for a sec? I still can't get enough, and this striped/plaid combo feeds my obsession perfectly. 

What are your favorite print mixing combos?

Holiday Midi

I don't know about you, but I am SO looking forward to the Holiday's this year. My nephews recently moved to Colorado, and knowing I get to share in the season's activities with them, has me feeling full of Christmas Cheer. 



When I first saw this midi, I immediately scooped it up to ring in the Holiday season. It makes me feel like I should be on the top of a very fashionable Christmas tree - in a good way! I can see it working well for many different occasions, and I'm sure if you see me around this Christmas season, you'll catch me in it once or twice. ;)

Plaid + Leopard

When I began to write this title, I had a feeling it sounded familiar. I went back through my blog history, and low and behold, I've done it before. What can I say, I love leopard and plaid. I also LOVE Target, which is where I discovered this blazer. 


Not only am I completely obsessed with this plaid print, but the striped lining and yellow pop of color in the collar give the blazer a designer quality touch. I could have gone with a pair of staple black stilettos, but these leopard pumps were begging to be brought out of the closet at the sheer mention of plaid.

Fall Wreath DIY

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that over the weekend I got a little crafty. We'll blame the fact that it was Saturday night (and I had a couple glasses of wine) but I had completely forgot to take pictures for a step-by-step tutorial. Either way, I thought it would be fun to share the instructions on how to make this Fall wreath with you:


What you need:
  • 12 faux Hydrangeas - I used 4 colors but you can use 3 if you prefer
  • Burlap Bow
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue
  • 18" Grapevine Wreath
  • Floral Shears
Instructions:
  • Begin by removing the flowers off of the stems with the floral sheers - cut about a half inch underneath the base of the flower. 
  • Using the hot glue gun, begin attaching the flowers one by one to the top of the wreath. You want the flowers to sit flat on wreath, so that the head of the flower points toward you.
  • Decide where you want the "top" of the wreath to be when it's hanging. Put some hot glue on the back of the burlap bow, and affix to top of the wreath. 
  • Voila! You're done!
As I mentioned earlier, I used 4 colors of the hydrangeas but you can use three if you prefer. I really went back and forth and couldn't decide if I wanted to use all 4 colors, but in the end, I'm glad I did. Also, the 18" wreath fit perfectly for my door, but if you have a larger door I would consider using the 22" grapevine wreath and 16 hydrangeas. 

I hope you enjoy this Fall craft, just in time for Thanksgiving!
