TIE DYE DIY

TIE DYE DIY

Never did I think that Tie Dye would come back into style. When I was a kid, no matter the vacation I would always get a souvenir Tie Dye shirt. Since my teen years, I thought tie dye was too juvenile and never wore it again. Fast forward to today, I am seeing it everywhere and it’s growing on me. I have seen a couple of cute long sleeve shirts and crops that I really like, when I went to buy what I had my eye on, I saw the price…. it was $55 for a pink tie dye shirt and $60 for a teal long sleeve… No thanks. As always my thought process is, “I can do this myself and make it look the same for half the cost”. I feel like I can’t be the only one who doesn’t want to spend $100 on a tie dye shirt, so I decided to make a “how to” blog post!

LET’S GET GRAPHIC

LET’S GET GRAPHIC

I don’t really remember the first time I thought of graphic tees as fashion. I think it was when I saw one of my girlfriends show up to a bar in a t-shirt and I was wearing a more dressy top. I thought, I should do that, it looks so comfortable. Tees are so versatile, I just hadn’t grasped that concept yet. Gradually, I started to accumulate more (cute) graphic tees, that weren’t just my old college or work out shirts. Graphic tees have also exploded on Instagram, dressed up or down and even worn as dresses. I have found three main places that I love to get my tees from.

MY FAVORITE JEWELRY BRANDS

MY FAVORITE JEWELRY BRANDS

Jewelry is one of my favorite things to add to an outfit, over shoes and bags. The jewelry you pair with an outfit makes all the difference. Even though I love different kinds of jewelry, I always seem to come back to my favorite pieces. I love simple gold jewelry, there is something about subtle dainty pieces that I can’t get enough of. However, since I am 25, still paying off college debt, and I live in a very expensive city… I don’t have the bank roll to be making high end jewelry purchases. That being the said, I have found pieces that fit my budget and my lifestyle.

Even though I don’t buy high end jewelry, I still expect quality. I want to be able to wear pieces that won’t tarnish. Nothing is more infuriating then spending money on things that don’t last!

THIS SEASON’S MUST HAVE COATS

THIS SEASON’S MUST HAVE COATS

Since I live in Chicago, I feel like I have been wearing heavy sweaters and coats for MONTHS. I can’t get enough of the cute coat trends that are in this season. Leopard has been so popular since this last summer and I’m thrilled that it has continued into winter. Neutrals, textures, and plaid are all in, and yes, I am counting leopard as a neutral. Even though I know I can only wear one at a time, I can’t help but love all of these coats.
