OOTD 76_"Let Your Love Grow Tall"

DSC_0738 The best thing about Dr. Martens? They double as rain boots. Today was drizzly so I threw mine on over my cathedral leggings. I was excited to style these casually, in contrast to this outfit. Although it's typical to pair crazy pants with black pieces, I wanted to keep the outfit subdued. To add interest, I used layers with sheer and leather details. I topped off the look with my trusty BDG beanie, which is not only stylish, but hides my hair on a messy day when I'm late to class.

The track for today's outfit post is "Let Your Love Grow Tall" by Passion Pit. Listen along below while you view!

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!
