Fashion things I’m loving lately

As someone who spends countless hours browsing the web, I come across a lot of things I bookmark. Sometimes homes, sometimes food, but lately it’s outfits & style. I haven’t done a roundup of my favorite things in a while, so I thought why not share?

Everything about this outfit from American Apparel. (I’ve been on a real American Apparel kick as of late. Perhaps it’s because they’re having a really awesome sale right now?)

Copper Pipe Jewelry Holder

I might have an addiction to J.Crew necklaces, which means that lately I have been running out of spaces to put them. So this month I decided to take it upon myself to build something to house them! This also combines two of A Joyful Riot’s favorite materials: wood and copper!

Materials:

Pipe cutter
– Wood plaque
1/2″ copper pressure tee
– Gorilla glue

Steps:

1. Using the pipe cutter, cut the following length of pipe, one 9” and two 5” long.

2. Take the 9 inch copper pipe piece and add gorilla glue on the bottom end and place in the middle of the wood plaque.

3. Hold it in place for a few minutes and then let it dry for at least one hour.

4. Add the pressure tee to the top of the pipe piece.

5. Add the 5 inch pieces to the sides of the pressure tee.

Adorn your new holder with your favorite bracelets and necklaces!

If you don’t understand the title of this blog post, you need to watch Bye Bye Birdie pronto. The colors in my outfit reminded me of this scene from the movie. Have I mentioned how much I like bright colors? Yes?

A winter’s salad

You know what makes me sad? Winter produce. Not that I don’t like it, but the fact that it frequently gets overlooked. We often attribute fruits and veggies with the summer season. (Helloooo loves of my life: tomatoes, peppers, stone fruit, strawberries, watermelon….) But the winter has so much beautiful produce to offer as well!

I don’t normally put grapefruit in my salads, but the tangy mixture of tart and bitter is a most wonderful juxtaposition of flavors.

Just a simple little gorgeous fashion editorial from the Lula Magazine archives that is pulling on my heartstrings as of late. I had the hardest time finding Lula Magazine anywhere near me in its early years, so there are a lot of fashion editorials I’ve missed. I’m kind of obsessed with the title ‘The Infinity Lane’. It just sounds really dreamy and wonderful. Perfect for a Friday. Anyway, I heard Issue 20 of Lula Magazine is coming out soon. Who’s excited?!

You know when a stroke of inspiration hits you out of nowhere? That’s my absolute favorite. Last week, I was taking Aubrey for a walk after a rainstorm and saw a tulip tree with all its beautiful petals sprinkled on the ground. The very next day I dragged my mother in the early morning to catch the golden light for outfit pictures. What a gem of a spot.
