Be Sure to Wear Some Leaves in Your Hair

IMG_8087

Happy weekend, everyone!

Today, I’m very very happy to show you my new autumn leaf headband. All it took was a blank headband, a package of leaves from Joann fabric, and glue! I also used some orange and yellow flower cabochons I had left over from making some rings.

All I had to do was lay down the headband and apply glue to the back of the leaves, and press them onto the headband fabric. Very simple to do, and I used gorilla super glue (hey, that rhymed).

I’m always wearing flower headbands, but since it’s fall and all, I really wanted an autumn-themed statement piece. Just wait until Christmas – I now know I’ll be making a holly-themed headband to keep up with the holiday flow. 😉

A simple red dress kept the rest of the outfit minimal. I wanted the focus to be on the headband, of course! We’re having some lingering warm days – a pleasant upper 80’s today – so short sleeves work just fine.

This statement headband has gotten a lot of compliments, a few confused stares here and there, and overall, I just love it and it’s become my favorite one I’ve made – plus it was totally inexpensive to make!!! I feel like a little autumn fairy out and about. 🙂

I had an unexpected surprise to find out that the place I work observes Columbus Day, so I have a 3 day weekend! An extra day to relax and enjoy some free time…yaaay!

See you all next time! 🙂

Lilac Time

Hello to everyone! I hope you’re having an excellent week. 🙂

Before I do another outfit post, I feel the need to start off by saying something I think is important to share.

Hearing about the horrible incident in Las Vegas, was really eye-opening and heartbreaking. I was even more shocked to find out one of my friends was at the concert in the front row, but thankfully, they are okay and were not injured. Still, too many others did not make it out okay, and that breaks my heart.

I realized, you never know what can happen, at any given time.

Just to share some inspiration: if you have anything you have been wanting to tell someone in your life, or just to tell someone that you appreciate them –  go ahead and do it. Even if you feel nervous to or that you’ll seem too emotional. Be grateful for the time you’re experiencing on earth. Tomorrow is never guaranteed, and maybe what you’ll say will warm someone’s heart or change their outlook for the better. Even just a small smile at a passing stranger. It’s spreading happiness in small ways, which is what the world needs more of. ❤

Having shared that, I’ll move onward…

I pulled out a bunch of scarves I have from last fall, and have been wearing them with pure joy! This one is not intended for warmth of course, but it’s a vintage item I bought at an antique store some time ago.

I really love purple, especially in shades such as lilac, and this outfit exudes a feminine vibe that I’m really loving!

I’ve been getting into the Halloween spirit, listening to Halloween-ish music on Spotify at work, and I’ve already watched Hocus Pocus. I try to make Halloween a month long celebration – same goes for Christmas. I’m a big holiday person, and I’ll find any way to go all out.

Speaking of, I made a headband of autumn leaves!!! (Fake ones, of course). I’ve always wanted one, and I finally made it. I wore it Monday and got a lot of compliments (I’ll wear it again this weekend and take photos). I’m excited for you guys to see it!

See you next time! Smile, laugh…enjoy this life. ❤

Greetings, friends from near and afar! ❤

It’s been a really nice weekend, and I wanted to get a good outfit post in. Going for that fall look! The weather is all-too fitting not to have a fall-inspired look.

Dark green, and brown hues…yes!!! And why not a splash of yellow?

The shoes add a quirky touch to the outfit, in my opinion. Sort of that artsy-chic look that I love dearly.

At the Pumpkin Patch!

Every October, I go to this pumpkin patch where my sister sells her jewelry. Today was the first day, so I had to take lots of pics to celebrate the occasion and start the month off right. 🙂

I sat at my sister’s booth and decorated a pumpkin I bought…although, a different take! No carving involved – I used old nylons I don’t wear and topped it off with a bow!

As I walked, surrounded by this beautiful scenery, I had Clair de lune by Debussy playing on my iPod. It took it to a whole other level! ❤ Absolutely peaceful.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

Until next time!
