What I Wore Wednesday

Hello friends!

Let’s celebrate with a few random outfits, eh?!

So… the way I usually work this What I Wore Wednesdays is when I think about it and have the time I take a few pics of my outfits. That’s why these posts are so few and far between.
I get a lot of inspiration from the other ladies that share WIWW posts… So I think it’s fun to share mine to make me feel a little more accountable for trying. So here you go… I tried. haha.

cute outfit idea

Curled my hair! I don’t do it very often… hubs prefers it straight, and let’s be honest. It’s faster to straighten it. haha.
You’ve seen those capris here before… The pink ruffle top is from Stage.. couldn’t find the exact one, so here’s a link to all their ruffle tops. You’re welcome. haha.

So excuse the bags under my eyes or whatever was going on there… sheesh! haha. The point I’m trying to make with this outfit, is I just adore the earring and ring set I won from The Posh Daisy awhile back… and I am SO STOKED to say I will soon own a , since I won Cerrisse’s big birthday giveaway!
Can’t wait to show it to you dolls! WHOOT! :)

Well Hello Lovelies! It’s Kayli! :) Shock right?? Can I just give a major high five to Kas for being so awesome and posting faithfully? She deserves it.
So what’s MY excuse? SCHOOL! :) Senior year of high school is going awesome so far, we’re past a lot of the MAJOR stuff, college applications and acceptance letters (I got two by the way and am going crazy trying to decide) and homecoming and football season. Now we’re in full basketball swing. I don’t play but I DO keep stats and there are games almost every weekend. I seriously DREAM about turnovers and assists these days. BUT the good news is, we have a break this weekend because Winter Ball is next Saturday and yes, even the humble statistician herself is marching for the coronation. So I’ve been busy, but even if I wasn’t posting I have been reading everyday and keeping up with the happenings on here. So I’m sorry. I’ll promise to post more if that’ll make it better.. (which it might not, let’s face it, Kassi is awesome.) :)

ANYWHO! That’s all beside the point, on to a tutorial! haha So I have this purse… and it’s cute, don’t get me wrong- but it was kind of getting on my nerves. To put it lightly, it was…. absolutely, DREADFULLY boring. And if there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s a boring purse! So my first thought of course is “I’ll look around and buy a new one!” my second thought was “I’m a broke high school student!” So instead I thought I might do a little fancying up of my own on a purse (that awfully dreadfully boring one) that I already had! My Inspiration came from Miss Nichelle at Vintage Wanna Bee because SHE IS FANTASTIC :) Go check it out yes? YES! So a pretty flower purse became the goal and THIS is how I got there.

Step One: Gather your materials! {Scrap material, a fairly boring bag, some thread, a needle and beads} Yours might be different from mine, you’ll probably need a lot less help from the patience fairy for example.. and you probably won’t need a phone to call Kassi and tell her about how awesome or awful the project’s going.. BUT those were necessities in my case :) (I steamed the purse with my shower to get those wrinkles out)

Step Two: Cut out a strip of fabric, how big you make it depends on how big you want your flower to be, I’m more of a lazy crafter- I won’t lie. So I just guessed, I wanted a smaller flower in this case. Then I folded it over and just simple stitched through it. WITHOUT cutting the thread right away.. you’re gonna use that to make it look like a flower. :)

Take your needle (still attached to string:) and pull until it ruffles into a circle, cut off the excess if you need to and sew it in place.

I just made a bunch of these and put some together.. then I attached them to the bag. I would go into stitches and pictures on all of that, but for as awful as I am at sewing, you’re probably better off on your own! Trust me! So I haphazardly attached sewed on my flowers so it looked like this!

Okay so now I have a confession to make, the lazy crafter in me hates sewing on beads but LOVES the idea of a good hot glue gun. So yes, I AM slightly ashamed of this next step. BUT it works for me! I’ve already carried it around and all of my beads are VERY secure. So I’m keeping my chin up! haha

And just like that my boring bag is suddenly something I’m excited to carry around!!! And with all my shortcuts it didn’t take all day to make!

Whew, THAT was a mouthful of blog. BUT I had to make up for lost time. :)What do you think? Have you done anything super crafty or fun lately? Link up to Fancy This Fridays and show it off :) And leave me some comment love yeah?
