Into the Great Wide Open

IMG_1755 Finally a cold day has passed through and I got to pull out my prized Unif AWOL jacket. Since buying it in Chicago I hadn't had a chance to wear it, but today was the day. Lately I'm loving the look of neon mixed with neutrals (especially camo as a neutral) even though I think this trend is a little out of style, but I could care less about that. When you're going to wear one of your favorite pieces in your closet, why not throw on another? Which for me are my vintage Docs. They just complete an outfit so well in my opinion.

Today's outfit track is one that I felt went well with the camp/neon/tye-dye coming from this outfit. Listen along to "Into the Great Wide Open" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers while you view, here!

P.S. How awesome are these nails I got at Target? They are stick-on with a simple peel-off back, but they seriously last so long. They feel really strong on my nails and even made it through a beach day this weekend. Obsessed!

"Double Vision"

IMG_0808 I really love the ability to pair boots and dresses together in the spring, so I'm capitalizing on the opportunity because it gives me a chance to wear my Docs more often, which is always a good thing. I love that I picked these pieces up at inexpensive places, but they form a really good look. Especially this dress. I've had it for a while and it is from TJ Maxx, but it is probably the most flattering dress I own. I love great finds like that from unexpected places.

The outfit track for today is "Double Vision" by 3OH!3. Mostly because it reminded me of spring vibes (wishing I was still on spring break) and also because I hadn't given that group a listen in a while. Listen along below while you view!

"Satisfaction"

IMG_0762 Today was a lazy day for me spent mostly at home, which I reflected in this casual outfit. I officially only have 1 hour of class on Thursdays, which is pretty unheard of for an architecture major, so I am enjoying it. I paired 2 prints together today, but since the lip print is more of a graphic print and the flannel is more of a pattern, I thought they worked well together.

The lips on this top reminded me of the Rolling Stones, so today I chose their song "Satisfaction" as the outfit track. Listen below while you view!

After taking these photos my roommates and I walked down to farmer's market from our house and I threw on a leather jacket for some added warmth and style!

DIY_Crate Table

DSC_1234 Since I had already tackled my closet as part of my spring cleaning (see my video if you missed it), I had to move on to another part of my room.

I had plans for this entire quarter to build an elaborate table for my room, and even saved this piece of plywood, but time just never seemed to permit. But today when I finished my finals (!) it was the first thing I got done...but by a little faster route.

Like I said I had saved this piece of plywood for a while now. I got in from the shop yard of my school's wood shop--aka it was free. It's a great place for people like me. As for the crates, I first walked down to two antique shops next to my house looking for some cool vintage ones, but at $40 a pop, I passed. I picked up these two wooden crates at Michael's today instead and just set the wood on top. Easy. Done.

The reason I wanted open crates was so they could double as storage. Since I set my record player on top of the table, I stored my records in one of the crates which I really like the look of. I'm using the other one for my camera gear, which I need access to daily!

Remember the pipe and flange lampI made a while back? I wanted to display it on this table as well. However, I broke the lightbulb recently, so for now, its working as a great hat rack!

Finally, I set my long mirror on top of the table. This wasn't part of my original plan, but it now lets me see my full outfit without having to kneel down (a fashion bloggers dream!). It also adds some nice height to the space!

I hope you enjoyed this little storage DIY--I wanted to share it because its such a fast storage solution that also shows off your personality at the same time.

Thanks for reading! See you tomorrow with an outfit post to show you what I wore to dinner with my friends!
