True Blue

After another incredibly busy weekend, I needed something simple this morning.  I decided on head-to-toe blue & paired it with my new Samudra clutch....

TGIF!  I've been looking forward to this weekend for days!  I have a few DIY projects to finish up, a skype date with one of my favorites, a Jays baseball game, lunch at Chipotle, some shopping at H&M and Zara, & a bridal shower to wrap it all up ;)  What about you guys, any fun plans?

Well, here they finally are.  These jeans never saw the light of day until I decided to tie-dye them with bleach.  Now, they never even make it back into my closet...just straight from the dryer and onto my body.  They just pair so well with a knit & heels...

Tie-Dye Denim

Gotta love when fashion throws you a bone...the DIY version looks just as authentic as the store bought versions and there is no wrong way to wear these. See how I styled mine tomorrow ;)

Just Give In

I found some look-alike Marant Renell's on Ebay so long ago, but wasn't comfortable with the thought of a knock-off. Instead of buying them right then, I decided I would try the DIY version first.  What a disaster that turned out to be! The initial iron-on patches didn't adhere properly so I attempted to use puff paint to create the missing parts of the designs.  The puff paint actually worked...until I tried to wash them!  Long story short, I was forced to just give in & buy them...

Le Tour

Thought you may like a tiny tour of my newly organized closet (aka: my little slice of heaven).  Still have a few finishing touches to add (mini chandelier? yes please!), but you get the point...


Hung this little frame on the outside of the door ;)
Stacked sweaters/sweatshirts along the top row & hung shorter garments by color, while a hanging unit holds T's & Tanks
Jeans are stacked on the bottom row & longer items are hung by color, while shoes are stacked & hung on a lower rack
View from doorway: Bag storage above window & stool for reaching
Shoes/clutches worn most often are easily accessible from doorway
Shoe holder on the back of the door frees up floor space

Happy Sunday :)

Still Moments

I wore this outfit yesterday, perfect since Friday's are short days at the office & I had a ton of running around to do after work.  I took a few 'me' minutes & sat outside in the sun with a vanilla latte from Starbucks before a night of baking & craft making ensued....

In the Mix

Could this outfit be any more random? I just grabbed a mix of items from all over my closet....anorak, black turtleneck, banana-print swimsuit cover-up, & my trusty black ankle boots.  This in-between weather really has me scratching my head, contemplating what to wear...
