Herrow my peoples! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I’m currently having a splendid one. Mainly because I am very excited for the shopping event I am co-hosting tomorrow night. (I bloggeled about it yesterday, so if you missed it, check it out here!
Secondly – I’m excited that I’m basically decked out, head-to-tow in Free People today. My lover-ly husband gave me the Alister Crossbody bag this past Valentine’s day. He is a sweet, sweet man and knows all weird ways to my heart.
I can’t say much else is new and/or exciting, so until next time. <3

So I almost died this week. For three reasons.

One, being that Jeffrey Campbell wrote up this freaking amazing feature of me on their blog. ME. THEM. SHOCKED. You can check it out HERE!!!!! 😀

Two, I decided to take a jog. In Arizona. At noon. When there is no shade. Like an idiot. I had woke up really early so for some reason I thought it was later in the day. Wrong-o! I basically almost died of heat stroke. I think I am being a little overly dramatic, but while I was walking home at a snails pace I honestly keep thinking that I was going to have to flag some random car over to drive me back home. Even when I was like 1 block from my house. Heck even when I could see my house! And to think, when I starting my run I even said to myself… “Pfffttt, I’m awesome! I’m not even sweating!! It’s been 12 minutes and I have so much stamina still. BOO YEAH!” Then I turned around to head home. Well yeah you amazing awesome runner, that same 12 minute run, took you 40 minutes to walk home. I even stood in someones front yard for a second because they had their sprinklers going. I was surviving out there!!!

Three, over this amazing western top from Lulus.com. I love the detail on the collar and how the hue complements my new hair color. What do you guys think? Totally dying right?

DIY: Velcro Changeable Trims

Cute trims on shorts are all over the place right now. I knew I had to think of a clever DIY that was different than just sewing on lace trim to the bottom of your favorite pair of denim shorts and loosing them to lace forever. And I did! So take that brain!
“Now with my Fabulous DIY Velcro Interchangeable Trim you can keep your fave cut-off shorts and Velcro on a cute trim anytime you want to spice them up, without changing them permanently.” (*in crazy infomercial voice.)
Pretty cool huh?!

I decided to get some trims from Jo-Ann’s, but I also thought I could reuse some of those adorable shopping bags you get from Free People.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
* Trims
* Shorts (Denim or any kind really)
* Velcro (I got 2 packs of Velcro Fabric Fusion Iron On – In black)
* Iron
* Scissors
* Pins

STEP 1: With your shorts inside out, grab a piece of the looped side of the Velcro. (That’s the soft side. That way if you have no trim on your shorts it won’t irritate your legs.) Peel the Velcro from the plastic backing.

STEP 2: Place the stick side on to your shorts at the bottom.

STEP 3: Go all the way around shorts on both side. I did 6 on each leg. 3 in the back and 3 in the front.

STEP 4: Measure your trim by pinning it around the bottom of your shorts.

STEP 5: Cut off any extra trim, but leave a small overlap. Repeat for both legs.

STEP 6: Peel plastic backing of hooked side and place onto the trim. Start to remove the pins and place as you go.

STEP 7: Remove all trim. Heat iron, following the directions from the Velcro instructions.

STEP 8: Iron on the looped Velcro to your shorts.

STEP 9: Iron on the hooked Velcro to your trim.

REPEAT! Iron on Velcro to as many different trims you have!

Yeah, I’m on my roof. It was probably one of the most terrifying actions I have ever attempted. The stairs to my roof are these cantilever metal slabs that jet out about 2 feet from the side of the house. As I walked up them I kept repeating to myself “these are regular stairs, just like regular stairs.” Once I got up there, I had to wait for my husband to get home from work to help me down.

I have an unreasonable fear of heights.

Anyways I hope you guys enjoy my first personal style post since my return. At least I hope you enjoy my attempt to conquer my fear.

Smoooches!

Summer’s not over in Arizona. It was blistering yesterday. I do love that I can still where short cut offs, but it’s constantly in the 100’s here…and I will admit I’m ready for it to cool off a tad.
On the bright side, I am wearing this cute little shirt I received from a store called JNAVA. I am really into photos being printed on t-shirts. If you’re into that too…JNAVA has got you covered.
