This lovely necklace seems almost too beautiful to wear~  I totally would, though!

All The Colors

I’ve really been wanting to update my personal color palette lately.  However, I don’t just want to go out and buy ALL THE COLORS, despite how much I want something other than grungy snow and mud around me~  So I’ve been messing around with the online color palette generators; just insert an image and they pull out the dominant colors for your palette.  I wandered through my inspiration pics, and picked a few with really appealing color schemes.

This image comes from the met’s costume collection, and the color palette is everything I’m wanting right now.  Subtle lilacs, watery blues, soft neutrals; it’s a perfect guide for updating my wardrobe.

 

Here’s a couple of alternates~

DIY Monday is now brought to you by thursday.  And the letter L~ (tl:dr diymonday’s hiatus is over)

The lace panel trend is not going anywhere, tbh.  And why should it?  It’s fabulous!  Also a great way to add texture to an outfit (and some interest to an otherwise plain wardrobe staple.  Like this Loft sweater:

I fell in love with this gorgeous antique lace, and bought it without a specific project in mind.  But it’s a perfect match with my new sweater~

Trim lace to fit (but leave a little extra to fold under and in case fabric stretches).  Then pin the lace to the sweater.  Be sure to center the lace carefully, so you don’t end up with an unfortunately crooked result~

Then just pop it in your sewing machine and straight stitch.  You could even do this by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine.  And voila!

Role Models

I really like and admire this trend: “real” people as models (which is not to imply that models aren’t people or aren’t real)

But it’s refreshing to see a company step back from the photoshop; and for me, personally, makes it easier to see how I would wear items.

Something that makes this pendant really special?  It’s made from ethically sourced materials~
