DSC_1432 First of all, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas! Today I decided to be festive for the holiday and pull out my red and green, but still do it in a chic way! I paired my red blazer with this very sparkly necklace with green rose detail. I wore them with basics, and the black jeggings were one of my Christmas gifts today--I love them! I finally threw my phone in this red clutch before I left. I think the red blazer and clutch are a lot together, but for the holidays I figured why not?

Today's outfit soundtrack? "Sleigh Ride" by fun. Listen here.

DIY_Printed Giftwrap

holidiy 4 intro I have made printed gift wrap in past years, and wanted to make some more than was specifically customized for the person receiving the gift. I made a dreamcatcher inspired wrapping and also a music inspired paper. I have also made tags to really complete the look and add a special touch. I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

To create the feather print paper, I simply freehand painted some feathers onto craft paper with black acrylic paint. I suggest mixing the paint with a little water so that you can paint more freely.

For the dreamcatcher tag, I used a store bought round paper tag, and drew on the dreamcatcher pattern with an ink pen. I added some beads in red.

For the feathers, I used the ink pen to draw feathers onto the craft paper. I then simply cut them out and taped them to the back of the tag where I added the to/from message.

Here is how the gifts look wrapped! I finished them off with some red raffia for a rustic feel that matched the red beads.

For the music inspired paper, I used this large sheet music stamp that I had around from a past project from Michael's. Instead of using ink, I used the same acrylic paint and water mixture to create the pattern.

I repeated the stamp until I had a paper printed with music notes. You could also wrap a gift in sheet music!

For the customized tag, I folded a sheet of red paper in half lengthwise and sketched out an electric guitar. I cut this out, added the message, and attached to the gift!

Here is the music inspired wrapping! These packages were finished off with a festive plaid bow.

DSC_1076 With Christmas around the corner, it was time to pull out my favorite festive sweater that I picked up at an H&M sale last season for 10 bucks. With the weather not that cold in AZ, I decided to pair it with the summer staple--cutoff Levi's. These two items contrast, but I kind of like that about this look. I was headed to have lunch with my friend Courtney, so I added my studded combat boots to tie the whole outfit together and make it on trend!

Let's be honest, as much as I wanted to wear a dressy outfit, and as many times as I tried on my leather skater skirt, I realized that for Thanksgiving, it's best to just go casual. After eating a big plate of food (and seconds!) I wanted to just lounge around, be cozy, and hang out with my cousins. Therefore, I chose a casual yet festive outfit that was forgiving at the end of the day.
