more chevron DIY…

So you all know by now I have a slight obsession with chevron print. I recently saw this great DIY picnic blanket {on twig and thistle}. With fall around the corner;  football season, outdoor concerts and cooler temperatures this is going to get put to great use. Not too mention cost only a few dollars to make.

What you’ll need: 

Fabric Drop Cloth, Home Depot: $6.98 

Paint Color of your choice

Painters Tape

Large paint brush or roller brush

fall under fifty

My best finds come when shopping out of season. Shopping out of season can be the key to success, either shopping before the season arrives or at the end of the season. The plus side of shopping out of season is purchasing items that others rarely come across.  So as much as I CANNOT imagine wearing a sweater or boots now {August has been a HOT one}, it is the best time to start shopping. I have compiled below my top fall favorite, finds for under fifty {$50}!

{fall 2011 Pantone Colors}

I look to the Pantone colors to be a guide on the latest color trends for each season. It’s nice to have colors in mind when shopping for a new season. I have a copy of this image on my iphone too! So if ever I need inspiration when shopping I can always look to color.

I have had several friends rave about JewelMint. I recently joined and had my first item delivered and absolutely love it! I can’t get over the styles, price and precious package your item is delivered in.

Side note, you are not automatically charged monthly {you can skip any month, as long as you skip by the 5th of each month. And pay only when you order a piece you like}.

Look for joining specials as well. My first piece was only $14.99!

printed maxi

Walking around my neighborhood last week, I noticed the most unique maxi skirt in the window of one of my favorite boutiques! I knew I had to have it {price pending of course}. The price was right {the save way} and now I can’t wait to wear it. And it will be perfect to transition into the fall as well!

twist ties

Don’t you hate when you open a loaf of bread or a bag of bagels and loose the twist tie? Well leave it to Michael Graves, for Target, to create a multi-purpose reusable tie. These work so good, I don’t even bother with the paper ties anymore.
