Summer to School

Hello again! We’re at Desk Days #4, .

The easiest way to stretch your school wardrobe is taking all the clothes you bought this summer, and layering them for the cooler school months. I styled 3 looks for summer, and then showed you how I would transition them for my desk days. Hope you enjoy & let me know your favorite transition in the comments section below.

PS. Stop back tomorrow for first day of school outfit inspiration.

Spring Coming

In honor of spring day 1, I dug up an old outfit post from the warmer weather, in hopes it would bring the weather back to us. Becasue I am sick of this polar vortex.

Do it Yourself: PUNK x 2

Hello again style people,

I have my second Punk DIY today. Leading up to the DIY punk outfit inspired by the Met’s exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture. The whole look should be up Monday or Tuesday… if you’re lucky.

I’m just showing you how to add an extra punk fabric to your shorts. The shorts are already studded and cut from previous DIY’s. If you need a how-ton on studding, click HERE. And if you want to know how to cut jeans into shorts, click HERE.

Now for today’s DIY. It was super easy, and cost less than $5 for the fabric. I bought a half of yard of fabric with some to spare after; the total time was about 15 minutes. For the how-to follow the pictures.

Thanks for visiting,
& again ROCK ON!
