Layers {on} layers

Here in North Texas we had a few days that actually got below Nike short and t-shirt weather! Soooo I took the opportunity and did some layering. I had no idea what I was doing, I really just kept pulling clothes out of my closet!

This is what the final product was and I was in love. I first put on a graphic tee cause I mean who doesn’t love graphic tees. Then I knew I wanted to wear a flannel and the vest was screaming it wanted to be worn. And the scarf just pulled it all together. Like it was warm and comfy which equals PLUS! What do you think?

And a little inspiration:

Faux {FUR}: A Necessity

This fall, I don’t know about you, but I will be wearing my fur vests as much as possible. And since it’s finally getting cool enough to wear fall clothes in Texas, cue the fur vests yall.

I posted that I was going to recreate this ( found her on pintrest but here’s the actual link)
I have an obsession with graphic tee’s this season and Old Navy has some awesome ones!!

I took the idea and ran with it! I used what I had so I wore leggings instead of cute boyfriend jeans!

I added a little cheetah cause who doesn’t love animal print?! The vest is Betsy Johnson. And I also have two other Betsy Johnson vests. I Love them!!! The shirt and necklace I got in Canton, TX at the trade days. if you haven’t been and live in DFW… YOU NEED TO GO! It’s so much fun!
I wore my favorite ankle booties that I got at Old Navy last year that literally go with everything! And I wore my chunky rose old watch from charming charlie that was $4.00!

Also, I told yall that I was painting earrings maroon since I couldn’t find any that I just loved….I think they turned out pretty awesome for not buying anything!

Cure your{Mondayzzz} : Food and Crafts

My friend over at Little Piece of Chic and I are starting a new thing called Cure your Mondays so Monday might be just a bit better for everyone.

Monday is always rough. ALWAYS. Reality sets back in and let’s just face it~ 4:30~ comes real early no matter what. But waking up to fresh pumpkin bread made with fresh pumpkin purée made this morning that much better. I am come on its pumpkin.

1. Fresh pumpkin Purée

Now I found this on pintrest HERE

First I cut the pumpkinin half and took out the guts and took off the stem

Then I baked it at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

Then I took the skin off and mashed it in a bowl

and let it sit and strain the excess water out. It smells amazing and tastes pretty good too if you like pumpkin! Then I used the Betty Crocker gluten free pumpkin bread recipe and it actually turned out pretty good!!

2. Maroon Earrings

So I have been in search of maroon earrings the last few weeks but haven’t found ones that I just love. So I decided to take apart a pair of blue earring I have and paint them!

Now since I didn’t have maroon paint because it was a spur of the moment craft I wanted to do, I took red and black and made my own color! I popped out the center of the earring, painted it maroon and will super glue it at a later time after I put a clear coat I to make them shiny!

These were a pair of earrings I got off of Jane.com that look similar to Kendra’s.

Hope your Monday is a little bit better with pumpkin. I know mine was. Pumpkin coffee and pumpkin bread=PERFECT.

Ally
