Layering is in, and fashionable too

I never considered layering to be a huge trend until recently. I always thought layering to be a bit of a fashion faux paux; I mean aren’t women constantly trying to look thinner, feel more svelte, and show off more skin??

I feel that layering has found a place in this world though. There are trendy and fashionable ways to layering clothing, jewelry , and more, and still feel beautiful. There is also the adage that clothing and jewelry do not define beauty, but that does not mean we cannot have fun with fashion, and experiment with edgy trends!

Monthly style guide-Up-cycled denim in all forms

I LOVE up-cycling. There is no piece of clothing that I do not look at and think ” I can cut that up!” . SERIOUSLY. I often have a hard time not cutting up my own clothing! 

As of lately, I have really been obsessed with cutting up jeans. and turning them into denim skirts. I love how easy, and care-free these skirts look, with a boho chic feel. There is so much you can do with denim, and I really enjoy adding embellishments as well. Denim is so easy to work with and the is a plethora of projects that make it a very fun fabric to work with from skirts and shorts, to flowers and headbands. 

So the next time you have an old pair of jeans that you want to toss, ask yourself instead: what sort of magic can I create with these?
