Plaid Coatigan

Plaid-Coatigan-2
        Whenever I hear the term "coatigan", I immediately feel the urge to shout "come again?", but since it is the most accurate description of this garment, I will refrain. If it wasn't clear from the name, the coatigan is a hybrid between a coat and a cardigan. All the soft and comfy sweater qualities of a cardi combined with the basic dimensions of the coat. While it is in no way a replacement for a coat, a lesson I learned the hard way, it is a very cute layering piece. They come in ALL shapes and colors (solid, and printed), but I think it works best if you find one in a great seasonal plaid! Coatigan - Old (Similar here)/ Sweater- J.Crew /...

New Frayvorite Jeans

I did it. I made my dream jeans without spending a dime. Fortunately I had the perfect pair to begin with, but even if you have to thrift a great, inexpensive pair, this is the easiest update and all you need are a pair of scissors.

Not all at the same frequency, but denim is so ingrained into our every day lives that people gravitate towards comfort and what fits their body type more often than purchasing a new pair every season. Good denim is not exactly cheap, and so in my opinion , it makes more sense to invest in...

DIY Eugenia Kim and Some Stuff About Loving Yourself

This was supposed to be a post on re-interpreting quite possibly the trendiest hat of the summer. However, with the launch of the People Style Watch #loveyourshape campaign, it quickly turned into something else. Those who know me well know I have always been self-conscious about my body. I've struggled with seeing myself as a healthy woman, and tend to make up reasons to pick on myself that don't actually exist. Although I have recently decided to stop body shaming (because its awful), it is all a learning process and there are still a few things I am trying to work on (mostly mental). Instead of product shots and details only, we decided to shoot the complete pool look (a first for me), and to celebrate...
