Five Fall Favorites


Colored Jacket- Old Navy (old, another option here, here, and here)  |  Leather Skirt- Zara (old, another option here, here, and here)  |  Zebra Print Loafers- Forever 21  |  Mini Messenger Bag- Forever 21 (I glued on black stud stripes from M&J Trimming)  |  Gold Jewelry- Forever 21 and Prima Donna

It seems like summer has just started and it's already coming to an end. But, we have the crisp autumn weather to look forward to! Which means keeping warm and cozy in light layers and comfy loafers. Perfect for the best time of year of sipping hot chai lattes while strolling through the park watching the leaves change colors. :)

Here are five key pieces I’m looking forward to wearing this fall. A colored jacket paired with a leather skirt, and animal print loafers. Plus, accessorizing with this black messenger bag which I added black studs to give it an edgy look with layers of delicate gold jewelry. While shopping for new fall accessories online I discovered Raise. An awesome site that offers discounted gift cards from my favorite retailers such as Zara, Forever 21, H&M, and more! As you know I love H&M for its on trend pieces for a girl on a budget but also for their basic bags and flats that are perfect for DIYs (tutorial here and here). So, I was very excited when I saw H&M gift cards you can buy for 15% off their valued price. Plus, if you have extra merchandise credit or gift cards lying around you can sell them too! What discounts will you discover? Let the fall shopping season begin!

DIY: Rhinestone and Crystal Dangle Earrings


Supplies:

- Four square rhinestones
- Two lucite rock crystals (I got mine from Beads World- 1384 Broadway)
- Two earring hooks

Start by taking your wire and threading them between each stone and connecting them. 


Then twist the ends together with pliers and tighten well. Do the Same for the top stone and cut off the excess.
