Outfit Post: 90's Child

This one goes out to all the 90's kids out there :) Well guess what, the 90's grunge is back black chokers and all! How adorable is this look from Lizard Thicket? My favorite thing about this boutique is that you can leave with an entire new outfit, top + bottom or dress + vest/kimono for $80 or under. {Like my look below} And that is including accessories and all! That is just not possible these days. I am super picky with what I add to my wardrobe, one, I want to buy pieces I can mix and match together and two, I want them to be affordable. Its a win win in that department at Lizard Thicket :) If you are local check out the Dana Park location and be sure to tell them I sent you! xx

Outfit Post: Tie Dye Romper

I have been meaning to take outfit pictures in this romper since our trip to San Diego. I absolutely LOVE this thing. I got it at Pitaya and it is basically the perfect outfit for any occasion. I wore it more casual on our trip, then for Jeff's birthday dinner last month I dressed it up more like I am wearing it here. Throw on a statement necklace {Pitaya}, some strappy sandals {Lizard Thicket} a hat {Forever 21} and you are good to go!

If any of your guys are local, check out their store on Mill Ave. They have the SWEETEST girls working there and I always find amazing things :)

DIY// Decorative Trays for under $5

I have seen similar DIYs like this floating around Pinterest/YouTube and wanted to give it a try. One of my favorite things to decorate with are trays. The only problem, is they can be expensive and it is sometimes hard trying to find the perfect size for the space you are decorating.

Here is how I made all of these! Enjoy!

What you will need:

  • Frames - I purchased mine from the dollar store. All 4 for $4
  • Decorative paper - I used some scrapbook paper I already had at home that I had purchased from Michaels. 
  • Scissors

1. Take the back off of the frame

2. Use the inner paper as a template for cutting out your scrapbook paper to ensure it is the right size.

3. Place scrapbook paper patterned side down and put the backing on.

4. Enjoy your finished product. ***This part is optional but if your frame is big enough, adding decorative handles on the side is also a cute touch.

Here are some examples of where I put mine:

*PS this spike necklace I featured on my Instagram @alyssamaywilson {photo below} yesterday - It is from Dear Heart Designs I am obsessed with it! I literally never take it off. Definitely check them out if you are wanting to wear something meaningful + unique.
