Sorry about the wrinkles on my blouse. I ironed it before wearing it out, but I guess I did not do too fabulous of a job. But I really don’t mind a few wrinkles. I’d like to say that it gives my blouse a little character. This denim vest used to be a jacket, but I noticed that it’s slightly distinguished shoulders would make for a perfect vest. Its acid blue color reminds me of summer’s long and bright days. Even though it just turned winter I can already feel spring creeping up from behind. I don’t even need to wear a jacket out, and I’ve been seeing so many people sporting shorts and sandals around me. I really wish it were colder so I can wrap myself up in all the bundles and layers that are so much fun to wear, but it is slightly refreshing to layer lightly and absorb California’s glorious rays of sunshine. I will always a warm weather girl at heart.
Today I will be celebrating my mom’s birthday with my family. We are planning to go out for a delicious dinner later today. I am so excited to give my mom her present that my sister and I chose out! It is beautiful :)
Thanks everyone for all the great feedback on the DIY headband I wore last post. Here are the directions to make one of your own:
1. Cut off the legs of a pair of cool tights at the thigh. Tie the cut off ends together, making a little bow.
2. Take one end of a leg and bring it back in to meet the bow on this leg’s original side extending from the bow. Sew it down in place (I would sew over double time to make sure it is tight and will have a strong hold).
3. Now take the end of the other leg and loop it through the other leg once. Bring the end back in to meet the bow on this leg’s original side. Sew it down in place.
4. Now sew the knot in the bow down for extra hold and so it does not come apart. Continue sewing around the edge of the bow down onto the edge of the front of the headband so that it lies flat.
Ta Da! That is basically it. Simple enough. Try it out if you have the time!
