No matter if you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl or you are the gal who loves a little more dazzle to your wardrobe, this is the season for you. Embellishment is everywhere, even on your most casual duds!

And here’s the really cool thing, even if you can’t afford to spend your money on high fashion items, you can find do-it-yourself art supplies at your local craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels and spend some time with your girlfriends or mom crafting your own denim and tops.

Since embroidered jeans are all the rage, go through your closet and find a pair that you’ve pretty much retired. Try them on, make sure they still fit, and then hit the craft stores. Add beads, sequins, or a simple flower appliqué to your tired denim and bring them back to life!

For fancier tees, try adding stones, gems, or iron-on rhinestones to spruce them up. Leave your necklace at home when wearing an embellished tee and just add earrings. Pair a decorated tee with a solid color pant or jeans and don a pair of ballet flats to finish your look. When wearing your newly embellished jeans, wear a menswear inspired vest over a simple white t-shirt. Add a pair of colorful Converse hi-top sneakers and you’ll be set for any outing.

I encourage you to think outside the box when dressing. Be creative, add some flair, add some sparkle! Take a trip to the craft store or go on-line and do a little shopping research before you hit the stores and design something unique this weekend. Bring out your inner fashion designer!

Beautiful Blessings,
