OOTD_99 "American Girl"

DSC_1303 well i think it's safe to say that spring is here. however, i haven't just realized this because of the weather, but by how i am dressing. i find myself reaching for fringe, hats, colorful pieces, and have started stacking on the rings. this is all resulting in outfits that i feel are great for festival season. although i've stuck to small concerts rather than Coachella, these outfits have been the perfect compliment to extra daylight and warm sun (that i'm soaking in as i blog from my porch).

although this outfit isn't red, white, and blue, i think it's laid back vibe says americana which is why i chose today's outfit track to be "American Girl" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. just listen along here and you'll understand.

DIY_Pegboard Organizer

DSC_0782 Today I found this scrap of pegboard in the wood shop at my school, and I knew I had to make something with it! I decided to go for the most typical use for the material--an organizer. But, I was in desperate need of a way to store all of my bracelets so I couldn't resist!

You will need some pegboard, a drill, 2 screws, and these long strips of hooks which I found at Home Depot for about 2 bucks each.

Simply screw the pegboard into your wall at the top corners. Don't screw all the way into the wall because when you slide in the hooks, they will need to rest against the wall.

Slide in the hooks into the holes. I offset mine for an asymmetrical look.

Finally, hang up your jewelry! You can also use the holes to hang up longer earrings.

And here's the finished product! I'm so happy with this and it was really fast to hang up.
