Painting in Camouflage

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

My favorite month of the year is coming to an end...le sigh... I can't believe it because just the other day I was celebrating my birthday. My friends from college came into town last weekend for a belated birthday celebration.  We started our day at paint nite to catch up, continued our night over dinner, then ended up at the very campus where we first met and walked down memory lane, literally. When I pictured my birthday celebration, this was exactly what I had in mind. It was a relaxed day with lots of laughter and catching up. I was very excited to spend the day with them especially one of my friends whom I hadn't seen in about 7 years.
For the day, I wanted to wear something casual yet put together. Paint nite is really not messy but you never know when a mishap will occur, so always make sure you wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting paint stains in them. If you and a group of your friends are looking for a fun way to have cocktails and chat, I suggest you try paint nite. I have gone twice and I enjoyed both. I don't "drink" but its still a good ole time. 
I completed my outfit with this camouflage anorak jacket. I think anoraks are the perfect transition piece for the seasons. So when I saw this in the store and decided to get all three colors, my sister questioned my sanity. But thats fine, some classic pieces deserved to be bought in every color available on the racks.

DIY: Cropped Rhinestone Sweatshirt

OMG...Its been foreverrrrr since I posted a DIY, and this is is not because I haven't done any. I just always forget to take pictures of the steps. Sometimes, I remember and take pictures but I don't post it because the pictures really don't explain the process well. This however is a super easy DIY. Simply follow the steps below and you can add rhinestones to anything. Turn a simple t-shirt into a festive top for the holidays or in my case, a sweatshirt. I may also do this for a tee shirt.

Hellooooooo. I had quite the weekend with a few events. Here is one of the looks. I made this skirt well over a year ago and have always been looking for the right blue top to wear with it. This is actually a body con dress which I wore as a top, and I think it went well together.

Golden Layers

Hello! I think my birthday is actually over as everyone around me has been trying to tell me. I tried to make it last all month but it didn't work, so back to regular scheduling. As the colder months approach, I have really been into buying staple pieces for layering purposes. J.crew, Ann Taylor, Zara, and Madewell are a few of the places that have amazing staple pieces. I can't wait to wear them. For, I am still trying to hold on to summer pieces with a fall twist, while I enjoy this indian summer we are having. I saw someone wearing shorts today, no jokes.
