Human Being

If I could live in tees I would. So anytime I can I try to find a way to make them a little more dressed up. I spotted this shirt a while ago from J. Crew, but didn't pull the trigger for some reason. I ended up going back to get this and a few other items I "needed". It's so different and I think that's what drew me in. Of course since it's fall I obviously had to throw in a pumpkin colored something, that's how my styling has been as of late. 

Side note - it's Thursday which means TVD and Grey's Anatomy, two of my absolute favorite indulgences. Hopefully this weekend will consist of me walking around a pumpkin patch and eating caramel apples!

Layer Up

Fall is my favorite guys. I don't know how many times I'm going to say that until winter, but I feel like I've said it too many times. The flannels come out and I get excited to watch the leaves fall. I believe fall is the best time to show off your style, you can layer and wear anything because the weather is the best.

 I've had this jacket for a few seasons now, but every year they seem to come out with something exactly like it. It definitely has been a worthy investment. I probably will be wearing it all of fall whenever I can. Let's not forget to mention these amazing shoes, found these beauties at TJ Maxx.

DIY: Metallic Shoulder Flannel



A fashion DIY for you! Fall means flannel and I wanted to do something fun to mine to add some sass. Let's not even talk about how hard it was for me to find the perfect flannel. I wanted to make sure it felt right, you know? Maybe it's just me! I've seen something similar to this with sequin, but I felt that wasn't really for me, so I came up with a DIY to make this beauty!


What you need: 
Flannel button up
1/2 yard lame fabric
Scissors
Pins
Sewing machine or needle and thread


To get the shape of the shoulder yoke, I pinned a piece of tissue to the flannel to trace out the shape.


Once I had the shape, I pinned the tissue to the lame.


Cut about 1/2 an inch away from the tissue. This will give you enough space to iron and hem the raw edges.


Pin & iron the lame. Once I ironed the fabric I took the pins out. This fabric is incredibly thin so make sure not to iron on a high setting.


Pin the lame to the shoulder. Sew to the flannel.


And you're finished! It's a simple update to a fall tradition and definitely an eye-catcher.
