Emerald Dreamin'

October 30, 2014

Finding things in the way, way back of my closet can sometimes be the best thing in the world. I purchased this dress a while back because the color was simply perfect. It just needed a touch of fall to make it ideal for this weather. I love the idea of transitioning warm weather clothes to fall and winter and that's exactly what I plan to do.

Halloween is tomorrow and I, of course, don't have a costume. Not a surprise there, I love the holidays, but I haven't gotten into the holiday spirit because we don't get any trick-or-treaters. Living in a "new" city it's hard to get into the community events and I've been attempting to the last few months. Hopefully by Christmas I'll have lots of holiday plans! Let's just not talk about Christmas yet...

DIY: Chain Tassel Earrings

October 27, 2014

Monday morning blues definitely calls for a DIY.

Those basic earrings of yours are about to get an upgrade. Here's a simple DIY that will add some pizazz to a pair of studs. Not only is this project inexpensive, it can really pull an outfit together.

What you need:
A basic pair of earrings
Jump rings
E6000 glue

How to:

1. Attach different lengths of chain to the jump ring. To separate the chain i just used scissors and cut where I wanted the different lengths. I did a cascading 5 strand look with the longest in the middle. This really is up to you, make it your own!

2. Slide the jump ring with the chains onto the earring post.

3. Apply glue to the back of the earring. Let dry overnight.

Ta da! I've worn these a few times, and there is still enough room to put them on my ears securely with the jump ring attached.

Thanks so much for reading!

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!
