Open Back and Khaki Pants

I love a good pair of khakis. They are just as versatile as jeans, but seem to given a bad name by being associated with business attire and school uniforms. Here are a few pictures to show how I like to wear my khakis and my new favorite pairs of shoes :)

DIY: Framed Necklaces

Jewelry is art, so why not frame it?

Step 1: Mark on the frame where you want the hooks to go.

Step 2: Use a drill to drill holes for the hooks, and then screw them in by hand.

Step 3: The hooks will stick out of the back of the frame, so paint wooden blocks (for top and bottom) and wooden strips (for the sides) and then glue them on to the back of the frame. This allows the frame to lie flat against the wall.

Step 4: Add hanging hardware to the the top block using the drill if necessary. 

Step 5: Hang the frame and add your favorite necklaces!

Glorious Shoes!

I am absolutely loving what is happening to the shoes industry! Not that shoes haven't always been pieces of art, but now they are really eye catching. They are just as wonderful as the clothing, not a side thought, but a piece of the outfit!

Here are a few of my favorite designer shoes right now.

Louis Vuitton



They're just so much fun!

Here some shoes that I'm wanting at the moment

I've got my sunglasses and magazine, so I'm all set to go to Disney World for the national dance team competition this weekend! I'm so excited! Woot woot!

DIY: Braided Fabric Bracelet

I loved this bracelet from Anthropologie, but since it's so expensive, I decided to make my own version!

Step 1. Tie 3 pieces in a knot, leaving about 2 or 3 inches free on the end. Repeat with other 3 pieces.
Step 2. Braid then knot each group, again leaving 2 or 3 inches at the end.

Step 3. Tie the braids together at each end.
Step 4. In the middle, wrap the copper wire.

Step 5. On one end of the bracelet, take one of the loose strips and knot it a few times. Cut away the remaining strips at this end.

Step 6. On the other end, take two of the loose strips and tie them to make a loop. Cut away the remaining stip.

Step 7. Fasten the bracelet by slipping the knot into the loop.
Step 8. Wear with a super gorgeous outfit for best results :)

Some variations could be adding beads into the braid, or adding an actual clasp to fasten it.

Photo Shoot!

I did a little photo shoot a while back with a family friend, and I just had to share some of the pictures (although unfortunately they are before I got my braces off). Have a wonderful Monday!

Me and my mom :)
