I’m sooo soo soo in love with this weather! I can’t count how many times I’ve told anyone who will listen over the past couple days, how incredibly in love with this weather I am. If I could hug the sky I would! Not only am I blessed enough to feel and see the warmth of the sun, but I’m fortunate enough to have a fabulous wardrobe to accompany it!

There are really only a few things a gal really needs to enjoy the sunshine in style. Cute denim shorts (I prefer mine high waisted,) fabulous sunnies, and a fun hat. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, I’m sure this hat and shorts look very familiar. Yes! I’m somewhat guilty of being half an outfit repeater, but I like to think I change it up with my tops and accessories. While I have a tendency to rack up my credit card bill on things that my boyfriend considers “junk” I consider them investments. I have friends that love buying jeans. Like they have 30 pairs of the same cut, same shade blue jeans. That’s great, and everyone has their own thing, but rather than have 30 of the same things I prefer having 30 different things. And this outfit is a perfect example of how to wear 3 different wardrobe essentials multiple ways. Stay tuned to see how many more ways I can make these pieces work!

Accessories Are So Much Better When They’re Done By You

So after realizing my favorite accessory for the coming season is a flower crown/ headband, I decided the best thing for myself and my bank account is to learn how to make the item myself. I’ve always had a knack for arts and crafts, and when I found this step by step Youtube tutorial, I practically skipped to the closest Michael’s to get my supplies.

The procedure is simple. Gather your favorite flowers from your neighborhood craft store (as of this blog post Michael’s is running a 40% off sale. Yup, you’re welcome!) Snip your favorite petals, or in my case I pulled, and glue the flower to a piece of elastic. While I LOVE the end result, and some critique from the BF I’ve decided my next attempt at this will involve some twine and maybe even some leather, for a more au natural look.

Stay tune to see how the rest of the collection turned out! I might even start putting some up on my Etsy account.
