DIY Floral Monogram + Video


Hello friends! I am alive despite my lack of an online presence. My new job has been AMAZING but has been kicking my ass. I average about 7k+ steps every day, more on the 14k+  side every day on the weekends when we have weddings. When I get home I eat dinner, say hi to my family, change into my comfy clothes then basically crash. I hope to shoot some outfits this week so yay for that! And school has been stressing me out too since I don't have a lot of time to work on it during the day. But I think I have it worked out so double yay! 

I really appreciate you guys sticking with me while I transition this. I do have some really cool ideas for posts that I hope to be able to produce for you guys! Time will tell if I can get them done..... 

Today I'm bringing you a VIDEO and a DIY! *insert salsa dancing emoji here*

 I'm sharing how to make this ridiculously adorable floral monogram! It's super easy to make, pretty affordable and adds a fun touch and pop of color to a room! You could even give it as a gift too! 

So how do you make this adorable DIY? 

Watch the video below! 




Supplies: 
I got all of my supplies from Hobby Lobby and used their 40% off coupon on some of the things that weren't on sale. They will be denoted with a *

Scissors 
Paint color of your choice

On a Blush Kick


I've been on such a blush kick lately! I don't know if it's because I'm so excited for spring and being able to break out my pastels or what but I've been loving this color! I've had this cardigan for awhile now but haven't eve worn it till now. Why I haven't until now I have no clue because this is my new favorite cardigan! It's lightweight, perfect for the spring temps and the perfect length, not too long or too short. Plus it has a gorgeous draped waterfall cut. It's one of those wear all the time pieces!










Sunnies: Forever 21 (similar here)// Tee: Abercrombie (almost identical here and similar here )// Cardigan: Forever 21 (similar here, here and here)// Jeans: American Eagle (similar here)// Converse// Purse: Calvin Klein// Necklace: Kendra Scott// 


|Thanks to Alex for the photos| 


I wore this outfit awhile back on my Insta and decided to give it a proper blog post because I've worn it like 5 times since then. It's just a great outfit! It's cute but casual and the cardigan is the perfect weight for these cool but still warmish California temps. 

This exact cardigan I've had for a year or more BUT I did manage to find basically the same one just in a slightly darker blush color here. The black and taupe are sold out :( But when they come back in stock I am ordering both! They're just great pieces to have, can go with so many different outfits, will be perfect for the office and are under $10 so you really can't beat them! 

I actually am wearing this same outfit to work today! I swapped out the ripped denim for my white jeans and my Converse for some black wedges since it's super warm here in SoCal! Like I said it's so versatile! 

Also now that I have an office job I need to start building up my wardrobe. It's dressy casual so if you have any great, affordable places that sell super cute clothes share them in the comments, send me an email or tweet me! I've been searching everywhere and so far Target and Forever 21 are the only places I've been able to find stuff.... 



Love blush like me? What are your double time pieces? Share below!
