Happy February y’all! Sometimes it’s too hard to figure out what to wear. Make it easy by sticking to neutrals only. I put some neutral combinations together as style inspiration for the rest of the month.
I’m planning on traveling quite a bit over the summer and early fall this year. I’m actually planning a two month trip to Europe later this year. With long trips that means packing versatile clothing that travels well (no one likes wrinkles or ironing) and can be easily washed (no dry clean only items). I’ve seen the Bina Brianca wrap before and thought it was genius, however I was not so happy with the price tag. But luckily enough I found several tutorials on how to make one for a fraction of the price. The tutorials I found all required more sewing that I wanted or thought needed to happen so I thought I’d share my version of the DIY convertible travel wrap.
Spring is a time when the weather can be strange. In the mornings and evenings it can be chilly, while the afternoons are nice and warm. To dress for that type of weather I will usually turn to spring scarves to help stay warm, but not overheat as the temperature changes throughout the day.
Even though the weather in California has been wonderful, this past weekend the temperatures have taken a bit of a dip. So I made a few more winter-wear items that was inspired by Katie Did’s sewn scarf that she made for her daughter. However her directions to gather strands of yarn and sew back and forth was not adequate enough for me. I struggled a bit to make an adult version for me and I figured my trials and error could help someone else trying to make a similar scarf. Read More
A major trend this season are blanket scarves. They look so cozy wrapped around everyone’s necks keeping them toasty warm, but another fun way to wear these scarves is to belt them!
Who doesn’t love a cozy scarf? I definitely do, but sometimes one doesn’t cut it.
Mixing scarves together is similar to mixing patterned clothes. You need the right color palettes and fun textures. Also try mixing similar type scarves together, like I did with the infinity scarf and cowl. Or try tying two scarves together for a fun extra long scarf.
Funnily enough, this whole look is actually all knit. So it’s more like knits on knits from head to toe!

Can you believe that it’s December already? I’m afraid I’ll blink and suddenly it’ll be 2015. While I was procrastinating on Pinterest I came across a scarf that looked deliciously cozy, but wasn’t worth the price tag to me and looked like a simple pattern I could work out myself. You just need to know the basics of knitting like how to cast on, how to knit and how to purl. The great thing about this is that since you’re using a bulky yarn, it knits up quickly, so you can make a more as presents for others.
The iconic Stuart Weitzman 5050 boots have been on my radar for awhile now, but sadly always out of my price range. This year my friend (who is obsessed with the beauty that is Olivia Palermo and her husband) made me aware of a similar version of the boots that was a fraction of the price at DSW. I for some reason didn’t order it right away like a sane person. Instead I mulled over it and waited until they sold out of the color I wanted, but happily when I was browsing the clearance section of the store I came across them on sale! So I bought them, took them home and was promptly stumped on how to wear them.
Last week I posted about wanting to tackle disorganized eyesores around my place and shared my newly reorganized jewelry. This week I want to share how I finally figured out a way to organize my scarves. I’m pretty sure as I share more of what I reorganize you all will realized how much of a slob I am.
It’s fall and that means scarves! I was at a Jo-Ann store recently and came across a plaid fabric that I loved and I bought it on a whim not really knowing what I would make out of it. Whenever I find a fabric that I like but don’t know what to do with I usually buy a yard of it and store it in my fabric bin until I figure out what I should make with it. This is a bad habit that I should break because I’m slowly becoming a hoarder of fabrics and would probably appear on the A&E Hoarders show if it was still running.
