Spring Wishlist ft. Warby Parker

As someone who doesn’t wear glasses, I’ve seen Warby Parker around the blogosphere but never really bothered to check them out more. When they got in touch with me to help spread the word about their spring collection, I thought right away nope! I don’t wear glasses, so why would I suggest them to my readers?

But then I saw the collection! They almost make me wish I did wear glasses, because they are just so pretty! There’s so many styles, and they’re all so lovely and whimsical. So, here’s some things from around the web that are on my wishlist for spring, including some pretty frames! What are you lusting after for spring?


First up- this adorable swimsuit from Modcloth! I need a new suit pretty badly, mine is two years old. Plus, this one is super cute!!

I know everyone’s obsessed with the Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay collection, and I’m no different! I gotta get my hands on this blush palette, the colors look gorgeous.

If I did wear eyeglasses, it would be super hard for me to choose between these peach Finch glasses and the red Maraschino frames! So cute.

I’m also a huge fan of rompers, and with spring (hopefully) not far away, I need this pretty cutout Forever21 one to add to my collection I think! Those bell sleeves are perfection.

Last but not least, this makeup bag from Breakups to Makeup is just the cutest! And so true too haha, I usually take way too long to choose a lip color in the morning.

How To Wear A Flower Crown

The other day, I shared with you a tutorial on how to make your very own flower crown for under $3. If you missed it, check it out here! I couldn’t resist shooting an outfit featuring it 🙂 I always love seeing pictures featuring flower crowns on various websites such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr, and everyone I see wearing one styles it in a different way! Here’s how I styled mine-how do you style yours?

I paired a floral skirt with a black crop top, and added a denim jacket and my trusty ankle booties. I kept my makeup simple, with just a swipe of bright pink lipstick to match the center flower. Get a closer look at this lipstick here!

I had so much fun taking these pictures! It was a gorgeous day out, and everything is better in the sunlight! It’s hard to stay stressed when it’s such a gorgeous day outside 🙂 Sunshine and the promise of summer make me instantly feel more optimistic, so I’ve got my fingers crossed hoping it sticks around for a while!

I’m so happy with how this DIY crown turned out! I love the huge flowers, but some may prefer to choose smaller ones for theirs in order to not feel overpowered. To each his own! The DIY works great with any size or shape of flower.

April Favorites

Another month has almost gone by, and I’d like to share with you a few of the lovely things I’ve been enjoying! Read on for my favorite products, accessories, and other fun things from this month! You can check out last month’s favorites here.

Favorite Hair Product:

I just started using this OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner in the beginning of April, and I’ve already been seeing amazing results in my hair! I chose this shampoo based on the great reviews I’d heard about it, and it paid off. I have hair that can get very dry, and these two products do wonders for it! They make my hair smooth, shiny, bouncy, and hydrated without leaving it feeling greasy or heavy. They’re amazing for someone with dry hair like me!april2Favorite Accessory:

I’ve been loving this Olivia+Joy clutch that I received as a birthday gift! It’s amazingly versatile for both day and night. I love the soft leather of it and the gold hardware, it’s very well made with tons of pockets inside for checkbooks, coupons, and more! It even comes with a detachable pouch inside that can be used as a wallet for credit cards and IDs if you like! Similar here.april6april7april8april9Favorite DIY:

My friend made me this lovely mug featuring my home state of Vermont! She has a matching one with the state of New York, where I live now, on it. If you put them next to each other, the dotted lines match up 🙂 I think it’s such a cute idea for a DIY for friends or family living in different states! I’ll make sure to put up a DIY on how to do this yourself soon! It’s quite easy.april3 Favorite Face Product:

A couple weeks ago, my trusty ELF blusher finally ran out, and I was forced to look for an alternative. So I picked up this Wet N Wild blush in Pearlescent Pink. It’s really a bit too shimmery for my taste, but it does the job for now! It adds a lovely swipe of color to my cheekbones in the morning. I use it sparingly though, because it is rather pigmented and has a bit of shimmer. It’s a great blush for the price of only $2.19 though!april4april5 Favorite Lip Product:

A friend sent me these adorable kitty lip glosses the other day, and they’re so cute I just had to include them! The cats’ heads unscrew, revealing a pot of lip gloss. The vanilla scent is lovely, and they add a sheer, slightly tinted shine to your lips. They’re a perfect everyday gloss, and so cute! 🙂

DIY Easy Flower Crown

On Pinterest and on others’ blogs lately, I’ve been seeing so many pictures of Coachella and boho-inspired outfits. So in the spirit of my festival season, (my favorite time of year!) I’ve decided to share with you all how to make your very own flower crown! And the best part? This cost me less than $3 to make!

What You’ll Need:

  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Elastic
  • Faux flowerscrown1

I got these fake flowers at Wal-Mart for $2.97 total! This is a very budget friendly craft, and so cute! You can use any kind of fake flowers you like. I chose larger ones, but if you’d like a more subtle statement there’s so many varieties available! Check out your local craft stores for more options too! You can find elastic there as well if you don’t have any lying around like I did 🙂crown2

Let’s Get Started!

Remove the flowers from the stems Mine pulled off fairly easily, but some may be more difficult and require scissors. I chose to also remove and use the leaves that came on the stems for a little variety.

Take the elastic and tie it around your head. Don’t tie it too tightly, leave a little wiggle room! You don’t want to cut off circulation haha. But also make sure that it’s not too loose so it’ll easily stay on your head.
crown3Lay out the flowers how you like them around the band before attaching them so you’ll have an idea to work from. Don’t be afraid to change it up as you go though! I put my largest and brightest one in the middle, then alternated the leaves and carnations going around the sides.

Now for the sewing! Thread your needle and slide it through the little thin plastic tubes where the flower or leaf attached to the stem. Putting it through this part is easier than trying to force it through the thicker middles of the flowers, and it looks the same once they’re attached.crown5 Continue around, attaching as many flowers or leaves as you’d like! I chose to only cover it halfway, but if you are using smaller flowers you may want to circle the whole thing. You can also space them further apart, and do lots of different patterns! Don’t be afraid to get creative!crown6The finished product!
crown7What do you think? Any cheap and easy projects catching your eye lately? Do you like flower crowns for festival season? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for an outfit featuring this project-coming soon! 😉

April Showers

Spring has sprung, but it’s still a bit too wet and muddy out for my liking. Here in Oneonta it drizzled all day but finally cleared up in the afternoon, just in time for me to shoot this outfit! I wanted an excuse to show off my favorite red rain boots! 🙂 We found this adorable little stone bridge just off a walking trail through the woods-doesn’t it just look like something out of a fairytale?

bridge1

When you live in the Northeast, a good pair of waterproof boots is a necessity. Some opt for more fashion-forward versions, but I’ve always love the classic red rubber rain boot! I wore them today with my comfy black and white polka-dot dress and my vintage denim jacket. Polka-dots, red, and denim all add classic elements to the look. I grabbed my red lipstick that perfectly matched the boots too!bridge7

I put my hair up in one of my favorite ways-as two crown braids! It’s such an easy hairstyle, and can be dressed up or down so easily! This is one of my go-to hairstyles in the mornings when I’m running late, because it only takes a couple minutes and looks like I made much more of an effort than if I simply rock the ponytail or bun to that 8 am class!

Since I was rocking the bold lip, I only swiped on a little mascara. I don’t usually wear a full face of makeup on a day-to day basis, just some lip color, mascara, and a little blush usually 🙂bridge4 bridge2

Dress: Forever21, Boots: Amazon, Jacket: Vintage, Lipstick: Milani Color Statement in 07 Best Red

 I just love wearing my rain boots-the put a smile on my face whenever I look down at them! What’s your favorite weather accessory? Do you have any go-to hairstyles? Let me know what you think in the comments! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Mint To Be

Yesterday was such a lovely day out! It’s finally beginning to consistently be warm out here in New York, which has gotten me wearing my favorite dresses again! This dress was a Christmas gift from my cousin this year, and I love it! It’s made of a lovely flowy chiffon, with such cute cutouts on the sides and back. It’s a pretty mint color with silver polka dots all over, and I just can’t get over how different and fun it is! horses3

I slipped on my berry-colored Mary Jane heels and grabbed my matching berry lipstick! I kept my jewelry simple with just a couple silver rings, and I grabbed a vintage jean jacket to make my outfit a little more casual. This dress is so versatile-I can dress it up with heels or down with sandals! I love the airy feel that the cutouts provide.horses4

Plum Tights and Spring Breezes

Spring has almost arrived!  After a long, loooong winter here in upstate New York, it’s a huge relief to be able to go outside without a million layers on. I took advantage of the above-forty degree temperature to wear one of my favorite dresses, a blue and white one I found on Modcloth. Its fifties-inspired classic silhouette and pretty pattern makes it a favorite year-round, but I especially enjoy it for spring because its light blue color and white patterns remind me of clouds in a summer sky!

I added a fuzzy white cardigan and some plum-colored tights to keep me warm. I love the way the blue and purple look together, and tights are still a must where I live to keep from freezing!

plum 6plum 2

I wore my brown oxfords, which complement the colors in my outfit nicely and play into the slightly vintage vibe the dress gives off. I love a good pair of oxford shoes! As much as I love wearing them with a dress and tights, I can’t wait til it warms up and I can wear them with shorts and skirts minus the tights.

Is it warm enough to not wear tights anymore where you are? What’s your favorite spring outfit? Let me know what you think!
