Style Files: Ethereal + Edgy Beachfront Looks

March 30, 2012

{Ethereal – 1 || 2 || 3 || 4 }
{Edgy – 1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5}
With this beautiful weather this weekend we are hoping to take advantage of the lake we live near by that has a beachside! I lean torwards the one piece looks (the idea that less skin is more mystery;)) and dreamed up a few beach side options for you all. And many of them are steals! Which would you go for? Edgy or Ethereal?
Fun links for your weekend:
1. I love that Stephanie and I were on the same page with our DIY’s yesterday! So cool.
2. This looks like the perfect summer party to me:) Dancing and the outdoors!
3. Easter in a box for grown ups or for kids. Brilliant.
4. I am pretty sure Payless has never had cuter shoes .
5. Finally, a one stop shop for scarves and 50 ways to tie them!
6. My new favorite shop for little ones.


DIY: Kate Spade Inspired Dot Stud Earrings

March 29, 2012

I saw these little beauties floating around on pinterest and of course being smitten by all things Kate Spade I wanted to own them. My frugal and creative wheels starting turning (can never turn that off unfortunately) and a simple and easy DIY was born…
Wood Furniture Buttons ($1.47 for a pack of 30!)
Nail Polish color of choice
Earring flatbacks
Super glue
Clear nail polish (optional)
I used clear nail polish on one set for a shiny finished wood look and left the other unfinished.
Cost: I only had to buy the wooden buttons and earring backs, both which come with several pieces. The rest are items you usually have on hand, so the cost is next to nothing!

1. Cover half of the wooden studs with tape (washi worked great for me). 
2. Paint the other half with nail color of choice. (I used a few favorites I had on hand: Essie Tour de Finance & Turquoise and Caicos). Let dry for a few minutes.
3. Remove the tape and attach the flat back earrings to the back of the wooden studs using super glue. Let dry.
These would be fun in almost any color:) Share your results if you try it out!

P.S. Another fantastic colorblock DIY I saw via Green Wedding Shoes for you to check out!

March 28, 2012

If you haven’t already, take a moment and get lost in the dreamy world of the Ruche Bridal Lookbook. These are just a few of my favorites from their brand new Bridal Line. The retro modern feel to the looks is so enchanting. And don’t even get me started on the shoes…
I can’t wait till my next sister gets married. Its only a matter of time;)
