skirting the issue…

Tomorrow we will embark on the hottest month of the year, especially down south, and shopping can be difficult in these upcoming transition months. Sale racks are great, however fall arrivals are pretty and new, but just too warm to even look at, much less try on.

This time of year I tend to purchase versatile pieces that can take me from the end of the summer through the rest of the year. Lately I have been all about skirts, great for tan legs now, and tights and boots come late fall and winter. Here are a few that will take you right through these hot summer months and into the much cooler ones!

painted sticks

Walking through Anthropologie for me, is instant inspiration overload. Things like; I want to make that, I have got to try that on, what can I use that for constantly swirl throughout my mind. Such a creative retail space, with ideas for all aspects of life. On my most recent trip I came across this great installation, that I want to try someday. Simple paint sticks, with a little color, hung in such a beautiful way! One day, I will find a use for this {maybe a photo backdrop?}. Until then, a little inspiration for you!

sole society

There are so many different shopping sites out there nowadays, with flash sales, special deals, monthly merchandise specials and member only features, you could seriously spend days browsing the selections. I came across a new one recently and I absolutely love it! You do have to sign up, but it’s only to get access and to create an account. Sole Society has so many great styles and choices for shoes, I just couldn’t resist. I purchased my first pair a few weeks back and plan to purchase another pair in the near future. And after all it’s good for your sole, right?!?

their way & the save way {shorts}

I feel like I haven’t done one of these post in forever! My weekend wardrobe recently is all shorts, and I am in the market to add a few new pairs. I came across the cutest pair from Madewell and what do you know, Old Navy makes a pair almost identical and for much less too!

their way: Madewell $59.50 

the save way: Old Navy $18.50

get hooked

From jewelry, to keys, and light jackets too, decorative hooks are a go-to of mine when trying to get organized! {They do wonders for long necklaces, all of mine are hung from hooks and rarely get tangled!}

mason jars and glitter glue

I’m from the South and if I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a million times, enough with the mason jars, right?!? Wrong, mason jars will forever be a part of everyday glassware down here. I recently became a little glitter happy {Martha Stewart has the BEST}, and decided to spice up one of my mason jars, with a little shimmer, I gave the jar a mini-makeover! And I love how it turned out! {Not a fan of the mason jar, try this same technique with any glassware.}

What you’ll need: Martha Stewart Glittering Glue, Martha Stewart glitter, paint brush, painters tape, glassware of your choice

{Side note: when cleaning carefully wash by hand}


if only I had more room

The most successful DIY projects are those that I use in my everyday life and I have a place for them to call home! Sure I can make something new every week, but at the end of the day my one bedroom apartment can only fit so much! This is one of those DIY projects I have been wanting to do, but absolutely have no space for it. So until then, I will share this one from I heart Organizing! How cute is this, and also oh so useful! Click through on the images for full DIY instructions!
