things i’m digging…
1. Homemade circle skirts.
They take about 20 minutes to sew, are totally versatile, comfy and super fun to twirl in. I’m addicted to making them and will probably live in nothing but circle skirts and tank tops this summer.
2. The headband method for curling hair.
I’ve tried a lot of different techniques for curling my hair without heat and this is, by far, the easiest with the best results. I can use a thick headband and get big, beachy waves or a thinner headband and get spiral curls. I now wear my hair everyday this way.
3. My organized closet.
This weekend, I did a major closet clean out and donated a ton of clothes to the Goodwill, including my very last pair of size 24 jeans. I was hanging onto them because I thought it’d be good to remember but I think the truth was, I was just keeping them because I wasn’t ready to let go of the girl I was when I wore that size. I am now, very ready, to let go of her. My closet is now only full of clothes that fit me and make me feel great about myself (like my circle skirts!).
I know Polyvore has been popular forever and I’m way late to the party, but I started playing with it last week to help figure out what new outfits I could make out of the stuff I already own (much easier than trying them on) and now I’m totally obsessed. It’s a fun way to figure out what’s missing from my wardrobe and what items I can use in new and different ways. Right now, I’m planning out my clothes for our beach trip in March and it’s amazing how just buying a few staple items can make my summer wardrobe stretch a lot farther. No need for a whole shopping spree for vacation clothes.
It wouldn’t be a Things I’m Digging without a TV show, would it? We’re all caught up on all the Netflixed epsiodes of Army Wives, The Vampire Diaries and How I Met Your Mother (the last two, we still need to get caught up on the current seasons) so it was time to start a new show and Felicity won out. Considering I had a major, huge love of the
WB CW in its heyday, I figured it was worth a shot. Once I got over the fact that it feels so dated and I’m supposed to take the pink Power Ranger seriously, I got into it. It’s good, but it’s no TVD, yo.
