OOTD_92 "Dashboard"

DSC_0929 I said in yesterday's outfit post that I thought my vests were going to get a lot of wear this spring, and here I am to prove it!

This outfit was inspired after I watched this "5 Grungy Outfits" video by Claire from heyclaire.com. I think she has great style that is minimal but still edgy and exciting at the same time.

The track for this outfit is "Dashboard" by Modest Mouse that has a laid back vibe for this lazy Saturday. Listen along below while you view!

I also wanted to mention the story behind this graphic tee. For the longest time I considered buying this sweater version from Urban but could never justify the price tag. I ended up finding this similar top at Target for 8 bucks in the men's section. Sometimes you can find the perfect thing in the most unexpected places!

DIY_Studded Beanie

DSC_0742 It's been a while since I've posted a DIY, but this is a good one! It's simple, inexpensive, fast, and very on trend. I have seen these beanies for sale online for at least $20. Don't be crazy and pay that price when you can make one for under 5 bucks. Mine was $4! You could even stud one that you already own--even better!

Start with a cheap beanie. Mine is from the men's section at Target, and was $4 as mentioned before. You will also need around 12 studs, give or take a few. Mine were from a thrifted belt. Speaking of which, that belt has supplied all of my past studding projects for the last 5 months. Score.

Begin attaching the studs to your beanie. I liked the way mine looked with a folded edge. Attach the studs and fold down the prongs using a tweezer. If you need extra help, check out my tips in this past tutorial of mine.

Continue studding all the way around the edge of your beanie. You can do the spacing however you'd like. This should only take you a few minutes!

And here's the finished product! I loooove how this had added some extra spice to my plain beanie, and adds femininity to something from the men's section.

Thanks so much for checking out this tutorial, I hope you enjoyed it! If you try out this project, I'd love to see the result. Tweet me @PaigePoppe or show it to me on Instagram @punkrockparti and use the hashtag #punkrockparti See you tomorrow!
