(vintage cardigan and tank, UO shorts, Reef flip-flops, Ray-Ban Aviators)
I found this cute cardigan at my local Salvation Army store for $1! Usually you wouldn't find me wearing too many loud prints but I just couldn't resist the floral print and bright pastel colors. It makes me happy just looking at it and adds a much welcomed pop to my otherwise dark wardrobe. I usually am very self conscious about showing my arms in sleeveless shirts and the light material of this cardi allows me to wear it in warmer weather.
Sorry for these less then flattering pics of me sans makeup. I've been too exhausted to put some on lately.

Finally had some great weather today (75 degrees)! There is nothing really interesting about this outfit except for my black lace shorts. They are so light and airy--made to perfection. It was made for a day like today. I highly recommend a pair.

A quickie DIY that makes use of any extra embroidery string and charms you may have lying around.
All you need is:
...a safety pin and scissors.
(If you don't have any embroidery string, you can purchase some at Michael's for only $0.35).
1. Cut three strands of string at a yard each. *click the pictures to make them bigger*
2. Braid the strands together.
3. For an interesting affect, hold on to one strand and push the rest of the braid
upwards to bunch the braid together.
4. Tie the ends, cut off any undesired excess of string and attach your charm at one end
(Secure it by tying a coupling of knots around it.)
5. For you clasp, just attach your safety pin through the braid.
That's it! Easy as pie in the eye!

Back at school from Spring Break. boooo!! It's crazy how fast time flies. Thought I'd share some pictures I took from the drive to and from. The boyfriend and I have made the trip several times over but I still love observing and documenting how the landscape changes with the seasons.

Came across one of Megan Fox's old red carpet looks and I just loved her turquoise necklace! Talk about a great statement piece for Spring. After browsing the web for one I thought I'd give making one a try. (Click the pictures to make them bigger.)
Here is what you will need: a necklace clasp, and...
You can purchase all of these things from Michael's! You may want to buy a few more strings of beads so that you can make a longer necklace and loop it around your neck twice as seen on the photo of Megan above.
1. Go ahead and string your beads to as long as you would like.
2. Secure the ends by tying multiple knots.
3. Then take the necklace clasps and attach them to the necklace with a series of
4. Do the same for the other end of the necklace.
Here's how my turquoise necklace turned out! What do you think?
