Pretty Pom Poms - How to wear them

Pretty Pom Poms & Tips For Wearing Them






Pom Poms and tassels are adorable and are EVERYWHERE, adding a fun and youthful element to any look. Wearing them correctly, however, can be a little tricky. If done wrong, you could fall victim to looking like you just stepped out of the circus. 

I've come up with a few tips to help guide y'all in the right direction.

1. Don't wear more than one tassel/pom item at a time.

2. Go monotone (only one color or shades of one color) or choose softer colors, if weary about trying the trend; this will help you ease into it.

3. If you do decide to wear more than one item, choose one monotone and one colorful, so as not to appear as if you came from the circus.

Father's Day Gift Ideas, Part II: LAST MINUTE IDEAS

Hello Dolls, 

Last year, I gave you a list of things to get the wonderful men in your life for Father's Day (link to post). This year, since I'm a little late, and Father's Day is THIS SUNDAY, I have some last minute gift ideas to share. All of these are personal and easy to execute. In other words, you don't have to be a Pinterest DIY professional.


ADULTS

1.  Personalized Golf Balls (DIY)



No, I don't mean getting them professionally printed.  Go and buy a set of golf balls, and then write funny notes on them with a sharpie. I've done this for my father, and father-in-law many times, and they keep asking for more! 

Here are some ideas for you:

I once was lost, but now I'm found.
Help! I can't swim!
You're lost too?
Be the ball.
I'm not lost, I'm hiding from ___.
Not your ball.
Playing thru!
My wife has the other one.
MIA
AWOL


2. Thoughtful art


Easy to create (using Word on a computer) and personalize by substituting words that describe your man. Can change Dad to Hubby, too.


3. _______ Of The Month Club



There are endless monthly clubs, that men will love.  Just sign up online, and print out a picture of the club to put into a Father's Day card.

* Beer or Wine of the month
* Sock of the month 
* Dive bar t-shirt of the month
* Tie of the month
* Whiskey of the month
* Coffee of the month
* Bacon of the month
AND SO MANY MORE!


4. Play On Words



Simple and witty.



KIDS

1. Daddy/Daughter Frame



I did this for both my own Father, as well as for my husband from our girls. It was a hit with both! You can purchase scrabble tiles on Amazon, without having to buy a new game, or take from your existing one. 

2. Play On Words


        


Doesn't get more adorable than this. Especially coming from the kid(s).


3. ART

 

 

Create these adorable pieces of art by using painters/masking tape to create the words, then let your child finger paint or color on top. Remove the tape to reveal the white words among the lovely colors. 



Grab a photo mat and let the kids go nuts coloring it!



Kid version of the personalized golf balls. Now they can feel like a part of them is with Dad when he's on the course. 


FAMILY FUN - Things to do together for Dad


1. Festive dessert



What Dad wouldn't love these hamburger cupcakes?

2. Creative photography with kids





You can take pictures with your camera or phone, and have them printed at CVS or Target the same day. Get creative with your kids, and have fun with it! 


That's a wrap, ladies, on this year's tips for last minute Father's Day gift ideas. Hope y'all get some ideas, or inspiration for the wonderful men in your lives. Better get moving! Sunday will be here before you know it.

XOXO

TRENDING: Snazzy sneakers

TRENDING:
THE NOT-SO-SUBTLE-SNEAKER 


Hello Dolls,


Gone are the days of the classic white Keds. The hot trend for 2017 is the "look-at-me" statement sneaker.  Just as the uber high-heels are transitioning out, as fashionistas worry more about comfort and practicality; so are the sneakers gaining momentum to fit this very ideal.
Low-tops, high-tops slip-ons and more; anyone can jump on this trend train.


LASER-CUT

Laser cutting has taken over the fashion world. From clothing, to shoes, handbags and hats; laser cut items are in high demand. The fashionista's growing love for attention to detail makes this trend uber appealing...and one to definitely try this year.

EMBELLISHED

This too is a trend taking over many areas of fashion, and the choices can be overwhelming. Patches, brooches, stitching, flowers, sequins, bows...I could go on and on. Pick something that excites you, and fits with your individual style. You can't go wrong when you stay true to, well, you!

PLATFORM

A shoe trend that keeps circulating back, which is a fabulous merge of comfort and edginess. It is perfect no matter your height, and the variations within the sneaker realm are plentiful.

HIGH-TOP

Sporty meets chic with the high-top sneaker. A perfect item to contrast an overtly feminine ensemble.  Pair them with a flowy maxi for a super casual feel. Add them to a pair of skinnies and a graphic tee for a hipster feel. Add them to a short dress and a moto jacket instead of reaching for your predictable heels.

ASOS - HIGH TOPS


PRINTED

Two words: express yourself! There are so many printed sneaks right now, that you're sure to find many to tickle your fancy. My advice is to keep the rest of your look simple, and stick to solid colors. If you're going to mix prints, make sure that they don't compete; one subtle and spread out, and the other extreme.

Another day, another trend to try. Happy shopping fashionistas!
Until next time.

XOXO,
