DIY Oversized Flower Crown

Hello friends!

As I mentioned yesterday on "Shifty Shift," I'm looking forward to this weekend because it is the Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta, Georgia. So many of my favorite artists are performing: John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Lana del Rey, Lorde, and Bastille to name a few! 

All summer long I've been seeing an abundance of festival outfits and flower crowns. I decided to follow suit and make my own oversized flower crown for this festival. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the DIY project was and elated with the result.

Shifty Shift

Hey y'all!

Shift dresses are usually favored in the summer months, but I couldn't help but style this one on this 85 degree day in September. I must admit it was slightly too warm for boots, nevertheless I endured the heat. The dress itself is very simple, so I tried to elevate it with lots of gold jewelry. I also stuck to my usual pattern of neutral shoes/purse.

Runway-esque :: 3.1 Phillip Lim F/W 2014

With September/October being fashion month, I've been keeping track of countless runway shows and events. Along with copious inspiration, I also procured a great deal of clothing lust. Sadly, a majority (ALL) of the items were unattainable in my budget. So I had the idea of finding "runway-esque" looks to mimic the runway styles. I am aware that the most recent shows are spring/summer, but I'm extracting ideas from the fall/winter shows (the weather needs to start cooperating so I can enjoy these pairings)!

Army Green

Oh how I wish fall was in the air! Unfortunately, in Georgia, we have experienced the upper 80s in temperature, so fall cuts were out of the question. Fall colors, on the other hand, were not. That leads to my styling of this army green circle skirt. It really is the perfect transition piece.

Avocado Pasta with Sauteed Veggies

If you follow me on Pinterest, you would know that I have a slight avocado obsession; I have a board dedicated to avocado recipes! I came across this avocado pasta sauce recipe on "Oh She Glows" and decided to attempt it.
