Our favorite part about blogging is connecting with other blogger beauties! There’s something so motivational and supportive about the blog community! Recently, the babe behindFashionLushsent us a package of bloggy goodies that totally brightened our week! Take a look at a few of our favorite items below. Hope you like them — we’re obsessed with the new Skinny Confidentialbook & Erica’s (FashionLush boss lady) hand painted arrows!! Also newly drooling over thePrana Headband & all their cute athletic gear!
Last weekend was my beautiful friend Brittney’s birthday! It was so much fun! We had the best girl’s day that started with a hike through a forest oasis of super-tall trees and waterfalls. Afterwards, we headed back to her place and painted inspirational life quotes on canvases. It was so relaxing and fun to just forget the real world, sip beer, and paint!
Brittney bought canvases at JoAnn’s fabrics for less than $7 a pack (talk afforadable!), and threw around some fun paints, glitters, and metallic pens for us to craft with. It was the perfect afternoon! We chatted about upcoming weddings (why are all of my friends getting engaged?! CRAZY!), ate salad, watched How to Get Away With Murder, and were pretty much as girlie as it gets! Such a fun afternoon, and definitely one to replicate for any east-coasters stuck in the snow! Check out our photos below for some inspiration! Think mason jars, Martha Stewart glitter, and salad-while-you-paint (aka.. excuse the salad bowl remnants in our shots! Girls gotta eat!)
^^ My canvas? “Friends, lovers, and glasses of wine. 3 things that should never be counted.” AMEN SISTAS! (+ a little teal glitter heart – it looks like a blob here because I was waiting for the glitter to dry!)
Below: Pic from our hike! How pretty is that waterfall!?
This Betsy Johnson inspired look definitely caught our eye on the way to lunch! THOSE TIGHTS? Yes, yes, yes. Taking a dark dress and pairing it with funky, patterned tights is what we’re all about as the winter months roll in. Wanna make your look a little more badass? Try a leather jacket and some combat boots. BAD BITCH look, but still classy. We’re into it.
Sending out this inspo to all the darlings stuck in the cold this week! It’s still sunny in LA, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! With Thanksgiving around the corner, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before we stash our cut-off shorts and start nomming on the pumpkin pie. I’m lovin’ this look because it features two pieces that I knowww I’ll be wearing all winter long: body chains (YES) & kimonos (think paired over a long sleeve, under a leather jacket, or with denim tied in!).
Would you wear a body chain?? How do you incorporate body chains into your look?? Share below or tag us on insta @halfsiesblog for a chance to be featured!
