{ Dare To Wear } Three Looks, One Sweatshirt

It’s not every day we remix our wardrobes. Wait, yeah it is. That’s pretty much what getting dressed is. This month one quilted sweatshirt from Target took on three different looks (and many more that just weren’t documented). Styled with a mini skirt or layered over a Canadian tuxedo,  the sweatshirt added warmth and a little athleisure to each look. Here’s the images to prove it. Full posts featuring styling tips and product links are linked below.

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Ear Cuffs Win At The 2015 SAG Awards

Ear cuffs are becoming a hot statement piece on the red carpet. A few leading ladies rocked the jewelry trend at the 2015 SAG Awards. Emma Stone donned a white-gold ear cuff with diamonds by Repossi while Keira Knightley opted for a similar style by the same designer in a pink-gold finish. Rashida Jones dazzled in two blingy ear cuffs that’s reported to cost $130,000. Wow.

{ Hair DO } Reese Witherspoon’s Low Ponytail

When it comes to hair, often the most complementary styles are nearly effortless. Case and point, Reese Witherspoon‘s low ponytail at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.  It works just as well on long bob as it does on really-long locks and only takes a few minutes to master.

Truth: I typically don’t think of a ponytail when I think of the red carpet, but you know what? It’s very clean, chic, and allows the person’s beauty to be the real focal point. Emma Stone also opted for the simple style with her short ‘do.

Ready to wear this red-carpet hairstyle in real life? Here’s how to achieve the look.

{ Gift It } DIY Hand Warmers

Forget Valentine’s Day and remember Galentine’s Day. It’s the fictional holiday created by Amy Poehler’s character on Parks & Recreation and it’s a day to celebrate your gals. Here’s a gift idea the ladies in your life will LOVE. The tutorial linked was found via Pinterest and created by graphic designer/mommy blogger Rae Ann Kelly, but I originally got the idea over the holiday when my friend stayed with me and had a set of hand warmers that someone DIYed for her – so thoughtful!

People go nuts for DIY gifts, especially when they’re awesome and these are. They don’t stay warm quite as long as a purchased heat pack but do the trick and cost little money and time to create. They’re great cold AMs on the commute or chilly PMs on the couch.
