“i want flowers around my head and love in my heart”
Summer’s here and I’m no longer going to pretend that I’m not loving this flower crown trend. Although, some might say that it’s too mainstream or hipster, I just genuinely think it’s romantic and pretty. Flower crowns can be subtle or all up in your face, but all in all, they look amazing with any outfit. They are the perfect summer accessory to make and we all know summer = DIY time. So, I decided to DIY this flower crown, because there is no reason to drop some serious cash and purchase one from Urban Outfitters or Anthropologie. As much as I want to blow my hard-worked money on a 80 dollar flower crown, I thought I’d make one for less than $5. All you need is some fake flowers, some flower wire and that’s about it. Enjoy some awkward photos of me posing with the crown. ♥♥♥
Other than flower crowns, I’ve also been gravitating towards anything floral. From clothing to house decor, I seem to be purchasing floral items more than I realized. This includes my fake floral Tory Burch phone case ehehe.
FLOWER CROWN: DIY
SLEEVELESS MOCK NECK TOP: FOREVER 21
CHIFFON SKIRT: GARAGE
CHIFFON MAXI: FOREVER 21
SPECKLED OVER-SIZED CARDIGAN: H&M
Last but not least, let’s not forget about the accessories that make an outfit! I love gold accents all year round, but especially during the summer because I think it looks amazing with tan skin. So I wear my rose gold Michael Kors watch everyday paired up with a spiked bracelet from Aldo to add some edge to the feminine outfits. I also throw on some rings from Forever 21 and H&M because I can’t live without them. Alongside with my everyday loves, my new found love are gel nails. I don’t know if I’d call them an accessory, but I recently got my nails did and I can’t stop staring at them. I did nails with my mom right after my last exam, I treated her and myself, and thought it was time for some pampering. For $40 I got nail extensions (short nails<) and a color of choice, which of course I chose a pale pink. It was definitely worth the $40, although sometimes it’s hard to use my phone and it’s definitely impossible to play guitar. Other than that, I want to get them done again! Let me know what color I should get next time I get a manicure or what DIYs you have awaiting you this summer.
