purple people eater & a giveaway!

On me: Vintage 70s blouse via Grey Dog, vintage scarf, target floppy hat, thrifted shorts, f21 oxfords, DIY rings
On Zeus: vintage polka dot scarf
It’s Friday, which puts me in a super good mood despite the sudden drop in temperature! It’s amazing what a little sunshine can do. This is yet another fun blouse that I got from where I work–the pleats, print and soft lilac color is just so fun to wear. I also found this floppy hat in the abyss that is my closet, crumpled and raggedy. But behold, I added new life to it by paring it with my newest go-to accessory–a vintage scarf! I wrapped it up and knotted it up around the band which brightened it up!
And now for a giveaway! I’m going to share my recent obsession with scarves and giveaway a vintage goodie of your very own and Zeus wanted to model them for you guys but he’s not up for grabs ;)  Isn’t he the sweetest? I’ve also been making my own rings out of vintage jewelry and would love to give one away, specially made for the winners!

A vintage scarf of your own & a DIY ring made out of vintage jewelry–made by me!

Thrifted tee, thrifted 80s bag, F21 oxfords & necklace, vintage scarf, DIY ring, DIY shorts   

Pink/coral/salmon + mint have become my favorite colors of spring. I love pairing them together because it creates a fun and youthful look that just screams SPRING! I’ve had these pink jeans for a few years, and as pants they were almost too much…even for a color loving gal like me. Recently I decided to turn them into shorts. Since it’s getting warmer, I’m coming up with new accessories to replace my beloved wool hats. I’m finally pulling out my collection of scarves and putting them to good use. I wore this one Steven Tyler style, although you can’t see in the pictures. I haven’t tried the turband look yet, but some of you adorable bloggers are pulling them off so well that I’m tempted to give it a try! 

What are your favorite spring color combinations? Inspire me :)  

Happy Tuesday everybody!

 DIY denim top, Gap jeans and beanie, F21 boots & clutch

I present to you–the DIY top from my previous post. Nothing too complicated but it definitely brought new life to one of my favorite denim button ups. As you can see, the snow is melting! But I still want the cold weather to stick around, I was made for it! I’m peacing out for a few days (snow days do not mean rescheduling tests, they mean I need to start studying), but I’ll get back to all of you wonderful peeps as time permits! 

Finish the weekend off strong…whatever that means to you!
