OOTD_93 + Closet Tour Video!

DSC_1013 I'm not sure what it is with me and tropical prints lately...maybe because I'm anxiously awaiting spring break? Whatever it is, I'm looking like a fashionable tourist today and I love it. You may remember these leggings from my spring haul video and I was excited about the cold weather (for once) so that I could pull these out. It was hard for me to decide what to pair them with, but I finally decided that a plain button down with a statement necklace was the perfect choice.

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.

FASHION_in my bag

i've always been inspired by the tumblr page things organized neatly. i love scrolling through the images and particularly like when the organized items are those inside a person's daily bag, such as this one or this one. i think that these photos really speak a lot about the person, and are becoming more prevalent in the design community. today i wanted to make my own, which features my backpack and what i have with me on a daily basis. considering that i'm a full-time architecture student, these things are with me even on the weekends. enjoy! things organized neatly 1
