Cold Shoulder



Exposed shoulders cut-outs are making a comeback again. Although, I've always liked the whole exposed shoulder when it comes to showing a little bit of skin without being too risque. Maybe that's part of the reason why I held on to this top for awhile. Yellow is also just a pretty color and appropriate color for spring. But here's another cute option for this top in a dress form.





If you haven't seen my latest DIY yet, I've DIY'd this choker wrap necklace that was inspired by this Free People piece.  It's super easy and a great inexpensive option if you're want to a simple, bohemian accessory to any outfit.

DIY choker wrap, DIY choker necklace, choker necklace DIY
It's been awhile since my last DIY project. Choker necklaces or choker wraps has been trending lately. These necklaces are the easiest accessories you can possibly make. You can also put your own spin to it depending on your style. They're also so easy to make that you and your friends can easily make multiples of this together to last you until Fall.

And if DIY is not for you, you can also shop some of my inspirations for this DIY:

Denim on Denim

Canadian Tuxedo, denim, denim on denim, chambray, spring style

I've donned on the Canadian tuxedo. You know, just trying to channel my inner Britney/Justin circa 2001 in this outfit. If you are not familiar with the Canadian tuxedo, it's simply a denim on denim outfit. Denim on top. Denim on the bottom. The key to making this outfit work is having two different washes to help break up the look, and not to be too matchy-matchy. I opted a lighter wash of the chambray shirt to contrast my dark boyfriend jeans.

I also added some a bold pattern and metallic accents to dress up this look a little bit. The striped blazer gave it a bit of that nautical feel to the look. And since I chose a baggier or looser fit jeans, I thought the earrings added a touch of femininity and pop of color which made it spring appropriate. This pair would also make for a cute spring accessory (and it's available in two different spring-ready colors!).

I've been loving these metallic oxfords lately as it instantly added a bit of an edge to my outfit. I'm definitely going to be wearing these more often for spring.

Lace top (another cute option here)/ Denim skirt (similar & less expensive here) / Military Jacket / Celine Nano (similar style + similar & less expensive here) / Uniqlo belt / Birkenstock sandals / Choker / China Glaze in Turned-Up Turquiose

Coachella weekend one was this past weekend, and I definitely felt the FOMO feels as I watched my friends's Snapchat story. However, that didn't stop me into dressing as if I'm going to the event myself. In my efforts to utilize more of what I have in my closet, I found this denim skirt folded in my closet. I decided to pull it out and get some leggy visuals since the sun's out.




One thing I learned at Coachella last year about dressing up was layering is key. Yes, I know it can get scorching hot in the day time. This lace top is perfect since it doesn't block out the air that'll help you stay cool. And if you'll be spending the whole day at the festival ground, you would definitely need at least a light jacket come nighttime time. It gets very cold once the sun sets. I made this mistake the first night, and I almost froze to death (ok, maybe almost gotten sick). So a light jacket, like this military jacket, is perfect since it goes with pretty much any outfit.
