It's a wrap!

Crop top / Asos (available here)
Wrap coat / Jovonnista (available here)
Ripped Jeans / Asos Petite (similar here)
Heeled Sandals / L.A.M.B.

Recently, been trying to take 4 days off inconspicuously from work in the last 3 weeks of the year, because in this case, Andy, if you don't use it, you lose it.

But the days off afford me some time to do extra recipes and DIYs that I haven't had the time to do in between outfit posts due to a ridiculous amount of birthdays, thanksgiving dinners, and other errands like buying/making gifts!

It's not obvious in the photos, but this coat can keep you warm like a fur! It's soft to the touch, and thick material. I wouldn't go to Antarctica with it, but it definitely served its job keeping me warm in my crop top as I ran around Sunday!

Oh, and that green ring wrap around bracelet? I made that! It's a sliding knot bracelet I learned as a kid from Chinese knotting class. Yes, that's a thing. Anyway, I didn't take photos, but if you guys like it and want to learn how to make it, I'd be happy to do a quick tutorial :)

This is a close-up of the bracelet I whipped up last minute the night before! :)

  12. Haha Chinese knotting class is a VERY specific thing to take as a kid! It's great you still remember tricks from it, that bracelet is really pretty. And that wrap looks awesome- i can only imagine how snuggly it is, and its the perfect topper for this crop top look :)

    1. I need to learn to plan better. Last year I used them all up in one go, but this year I didn't have a huge trip planned so I forgot to take them! Thanks! I keep forgetting to join in. Hopefully I remember this week! :)

  16. The coat is beautiful. I quite like your heels as well. Here it is definitely too cold to run around in a crop top, even if wearing a coat over it. And dang, I have to make some time for D.I.Y.s, it's been ages since I made me some jewelry.
