DIY Floral Crown Tutorial

Channeling my inner Lana Del Rey for my first ever tutorial on the blog.

I’ve been meaning to create this tutorial for a while, and finally got around to it.

Sifting through the countless tutorials online, I found that most can actually be quite complex and time-consuming. But with some trial and error, I’ve found a really quick + simple way to efficiently create beautiful floral crowns.

Mix n’ Match Mondays

We don’t always have the amount of time and money to allot to our wardrobe as we’d like, so it’s really helpful to be able to multi-purpose a piece whenever possible.

I love trying to find new and creative ways to wear things you’ve worn before to create a fresh look. The top is from my Sheer Color Blocking post, and the scalloped white shorts are from Summer Heat.

Sheer Color Blocking

An outfit I wore for the EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking festival.

I didn’t take too many pictures inside, but managed to snap a few of the food.

If you’ve never been, the festival is definitely worth checking out. Tons of different vendors, and a huge selection of food to sample. There are free ones available, but most of the more substantial offerings cost tickets.

You can buy packs of 20 tickets for $10, so it comes out to be 50 cents a ticket. Most items are anywhere from 2 – 8 tickets (or $1 – $4).

My Fair Lady

Whenever I put this hat on, I instantly feel more elegant and lady-like.

I have always admired the spectacular hat game they have going on at the formal social gatherings in Europe.

Beautifully structured couture hats that are more like pieces of art than head gear… Kate Middleton must have the world’s most gorgeous accessories closet.

Sadly mine is just the basic black felt hat, but I do think it still adds that touch of lady.

Layered Silks

An outfit for strolling through downtown.

I wore my navy silk dress layered with a deep plum silk blazer. It’s hard to see in the photo, but there is actually a lovely bird texture imprinted on the fabric.

Great day for walking along the water to Gastown, where I finally grabbed my new business cards! I love it when online businesses offer local pick up as an alternative to shipping, it’s faster and saves on cost too.
