"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!

"Disorder and Disarray"

IMG_0127 As promised, here is the outfit I wore to style the denim jacket I upcycled in yesterday's DIY! To avoid wearing double denim, I paired it with my leather skater skirt which also gave a nice contrast of textures. In order to not let the look get too feminine, I laced up my Sk8-Hi's and really like how the look turned out.

Today I chose a Rancid song for today's outfit because of the patch on my jacket. Listen along to one of my favorites, "Disorder and Disarray" while you view here!

In case you noticed, yes I did upgrade to a new camera. If you're interested, I chose the Canon Rebel T3i. It's only been a few days, but I would definitely recommend it if you are in the market!

DIY_Patched Denim Jacket + Video

DIY INTRO Today I've got a classic DIY project for you, a patched denim jacket. While you may know how to sew on a patch, I wanted to share the little patch collection I've been building for a few months now, and how my final product turned out! I was also wanting to play around with my new camera now that I could record HD video, and this seemed to be the perfect project to start with! Check out my video, or see the photos of my jacket below!

I picked up this jacket over the summer at Goodwill. You may remember it from this outfit post!

Thanks so much for reading! I'll be back tomorrow with an outfit post wearing my jacket!

OOTD_75: "Disorder and Disarray"

DSC_0661 I think this may have been the first time I've worn these high waisted cheetah print jeans on the blog, and really not sure why because I love how wild they are. I knew I needed to pair them up with my new Litas because the wood tone in the heels went so well with the color of the pants. I balanced the bottom of the outfit out with neutrals, but made sure they were edgy pieces. I think my cross tee, leather jacket, and spiked headband are just that.

The song for today's outfit post is "Disorder and Disarray"by Rancid. Listen along here while you view!
