Mom jeans are really in at the moment. Once a second-choice pant, now people can’t get enough of their loose, roomy cut. They’re just as great for slouching around as they are for dressing up. I’m going to show you six easy to put together ways that you can style mom jeans.
Loafers are such a great shoe to own because they immediately make outfits look very dressed up and make you look put together, but they’re not uncomfortable like high heels are. They have a little bit of a heel, but it’s not too high - you don’t feel like you’re hobbling around. Invest in a good pair, and they will feature happily on your feet for years to come. Take a look at these three different ways that I have styled mine.
There’s something about wearing a good fitting pair of overalls that I find comforting. Plus if I’m not feeling too jazzed about a certain shirt, I can wear it with some overalls and I start to like it again. That got me thinking about turning some of my favorite trousers into some cute overalls, but not permanently. I’ll show you how I made a detachable bib to go with my trousers in just a couple of hours.
Denim jackets are that kind of timeless garments that we took out of our wardrobe every autumn and spring. In today's DIY, I'm going to show you how I've upcycled my old denim jacket into a sweeter and fresher one. My new Alfa sewing machine has been the perfect tool for this Do-It-Yourself, as it has helped to do it quick, easier and get a perfect finish. I was not used to sew with a machine, but I think I'm going to use it a lot. Are you ready for this tutorial? Let's start with the step-by-step.
In this fashion DIY, I am going to be tie-dying a sweatshirt.

This women’s lounge top is really awesome as it’s a little oversized and has a great tie in the front- just to give it that extra edge. Ok, let’s get to it!

I've been having a lot of work lately and that's why I haven't been able to DIY as much as I would. Now that I'm having more relaxed days, I'll try to use properly my time and do all then projects I would like to do. This week tutorial is a pair of DIY cool jeans, and it is done with my favourite technique: paint. I think it gives you the change to develop a great range of ideas and the result is always very satisfactory. Today's one is very similar to the tribal shorts I made two summers ago, but with a pair of denim skinnies. Easy, quick and cool. Do you dare?
After posting a Blair Waldorf-inspired style guide, one of the main things that people kept asking about was the neck bow that I was wearing.

So, instead, I thought I’d teach you guys how to DIY your own version of this accessory.
This spring, linen is a trend. In pants, shorts, tops, dresses.... I snagged these adorable linen pants from oldnavy.com in this coral color. They come in several colors choices, but these were bright and fun for spring so I ordered them and was pleasantly surprised when they fit so well. Bonus, they are available in petite which is great for short gals! I allies end up walking all over them without wearing heels and I don’t always want to wear heels. If you want to wear heels, you’ll probably want to order the regular length. They hold shape well for linen and don’t wrinkle too bad throughout the day. I have paired them a few ways but the options are many. This black body suit from Maurice’s is a great staple piece and comes in white as well. The white ribbed tank is also a fav, I’ve posted about these tanks before. I truly love them! I threw on a denim jacket for cooler spring mornings to complete this outfit. Would be super cute with some wedges or sneakers as well.

The best part about this easy skater dress tutorial is that you don’t need a pattern; a fitting shirt will do! Ok, so let’s dive into this skater dress tutorial and let me show you how to make this timeless piece.

Headscarves have been in and out of fashion throughout the decades. Fans of the TV show, " I Love Lucy" know that headscarves were frequently seen on Lucy Ricardo's character and became an iconic look for the period.I'm going to show you how to create a similar period look using Tootie's Turbans headscarves. I love these accessories because they fit better than just using a regular scarf, which can be hard to tie just right and slide off without pinning in place. Tootie's headscarves conform to the head with some superb tailoring and have "tails" to tie in multiple ways. Plus, some are reversible prints, so it's like getting two in one. Here's how to create some retro 1950’s headscarf look.
