HOW I STYLE_Vests for Spring + Video!

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADEEDGEjcUY&w=560&h=315]

I filmed this video with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks because I have noticed how much vests are becoming a staple of my spring wardrobe. I love how they add a layer to your outfit, without making you too warm. Check out the video and I have also included photos with outfit details below if you are curious!

OOTD_97 Final Review

DSC_1172 Today was my final review for studio. I can't believe how fast this quarter has gone, but I think it's because I really enjoyed what I was learning and working on all quarter. I'm going to share more about my project this week, but for now, this is the outfit I wore!

I am really liking how this rose gold necklace adds something extra to an all black outfit. I pulled out my leather moto jacket, but layered a linen moto underneath so I would still have the look even if I got warm and took off my jacket. A little double layering action!

OOTD_91 "Cactus in the valley"

DSC_0917 I've recently found that I'm having trouble making my outfits interesting and have depth as the days get warmer because I'm not able to layer as much as I'd like. The perfect solution to this problem is a vest. The cut of it still leaves you cool, but you've added some dimension to your outfit as well. I have 4 vests in my closet (3 of them DIYed!) that I think will be getting a lot of wear in the coming months.

The track for today's outfit post is "Cactus in the valley" by Lights, whose music I have featured on here before in this outfit post. Listen along here while you view!

DIY_Removable Boot Tassels

DSC_0954 Fringe is an embellishment that I want on a lot of my accessories such as purses and shoes, but sometimes I want a cleaner, simpler look as well. This DIY is perfect for that! Make these fringe tassels for your favorite plain ankle boots, but the best part? They're just attached with duct tape so they are 100% removable and reusable. Win win.

I learned how to make these from one of the best DIY blogs P.S. I made this. Check out the simple tutorial here and check out my results below!

The only supplies you will need are some faux leather, scissors, and duct tape. I had some faux leather left over from this DIY clutch, but you can find it at fabric stores. P.S. my ankle boots are from Target!

And here is my finished product! I am so excited about these and the fact that I can take them off when they don't exactly work with my outfit.
