How to: DIY Plaited Bracelet

Today’s “how to” is a guest post from across the pond  by another Fancy blogger named “Fran” who blogs over at Teahab. She was gracious enough to share with my reader’s one of her DIY projects :)

I wear my Sunglasses at Night…

For those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have 20/20 vision, or the hipsters individuals that choose to wear eye glasses for style, the battle between eye glasses and sunnies has been in full swing. Debating whether to forgo sight or protection from sunlight is one call no one should have to make (and PLEASE no one even mention transition lenses as if that is even a slightly acceptable compromise). I myself have been meaning to invest in a pair of prescription sunglasses ever since my eyes decided that after almost 7 years of matrimony, contacts suddenly annoy them and I’ve been forced to wear my glasses a lot more. Needless to say I was thrilled when Firmoo contacted me to do a review on one of their products. I naturally chose to review a pair of sunnies since I already have glasses that I love, and plus what girl can resist having one more pair of sunglasses! :)

weekly wardrobe inspiration: Little Bow Peeps

weekly wardrobe inspiration: Little Bow Peeps

I don’t know why, but lately I have been obsessed with ties and bow ties. Well since I am a girly girl, and feel weird wearing a traditional male bow tie, I have started to love the trend of shirts and tops with attached bows. This look can be professional as well as sweetly feminine, and it can help add volume to areas where you wish you had more volume ;-)  . Be sure to keep reading to see where you can get each of these pieces! Also comment below and tell me about your own weekly inspiration!

How to: Six Items or less challenge

Recently my friend shared with me this article she found about “the six item challenge.” I hadn’t previously heard of it so I was intrigued by the concept. Basically the idea is to wear the same six items of clothing for 30 days straight. It goes without mentioning that underwear and other “time sensitive” clothing is excluded from this challenge.

I found the idea of the challenge to be interesting. It reminded me of back in undergrad ( I love how I say that as if I didn’t just graduate a few months ago lol )  there was this group/pseudo sorority that made all the girls interested in joining wear the same exact dress for the entire pledge period.

Although I’m 100 percent sure I’m not up to this six item challenge at this point in time, it did however get me thinking of times when limiting yourself to a few clothing choices is a good idea (hint hint, anytime a suitcase is involved) . I felt inspired to create my own six item challenge … “The Six Item work week challenge.”

Current Crush: Camel Color Accessories

 

 

Current Crush: Camel Color Accessories

Okay okay, so technically camel isn’t really a traditional “summer color” but I love to rock this color year round. Currently I’ve been crushing on camel color accessories, everything from bags to flats, I even bought a new pair of shoes last week in this same color! It’s hard not to love it when it goes with almost everything and makes getting dressed in the morning that much easier :)!!
