DIY: French Tip Heels

Have any of you seen one of the latest trends - french tip heels?  I am in love with the appearance of them, but not so much with the cost!  If you're like me and you don't feel like dropping $200 for french tip heels, then this DIY is perfect for you.  I stopped by my local craft store (Michael's) and picked up the following items:

1 bottle of acrylic paint (color of choice)
1 can of acrylic protective spray
Painter's tape


Grab any pair of high heels that you would like to "make over" with a french tip look.

Create a cap at the tip of your heels using painter's tape to outline, and firmly press along the edges to secure the lining.

Using a small paint brush, carefully paint a few coats of acrylic paint within the outlined area of your shoes.  Let it dry for 25 minutes.

Spray a thin layer of acrylic protective spray over the french tip.

It only cost me about $15 to complete these beauties.  I love the chic look that they give these shoes!

Weekend Looks for 3 Different Style Types

As the weekend is approaching, so are the endless options of what to wear for every occasion.  Everybody has their own style; therefore, I have dedicated today's post to outlining three different looks for these style types.  If your style type is eclectic, you can switch out the following looks as they apply to occasions or events throughout the weekend.  Enjoy!

Feminine and Trendy - This look is perfect for those who love delicate fabrics, spring floral prints, follow trends, and enjoy girlie accents.  The ideal occasion: Brunch with the ladies.  Where the items are from: F21 blouse, shorts and bracelet | ALDO heels and bag.

Effortlessly Chic - Although rocking high heels is great, sometimes a girl just wants to throw on a pair of flats too.  It could also be wearable with a pair of denim shorts, as shoulder bags accentuate the length of shorts as well.  This outfit is applicable to those who enjoy a bit more of a casual look, need something cute yet fashionable for school, or on-the-go moms.  The ideal occasion: Daytime shopping or to the local market.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | F21 distressed jeans | Vintage shoulder bag | Target flats | F21 accessories.

Bold and Edgy - For the daring, this look can make you stand out in any setting.  Pair a high-peaked shoulder top with a statement necklace, sequin shorts and colorful pumps and you are set.  The ideal occasion: Girl's night out or a late dinner date.  Where the items are from: ZARA top | ZARA necklace | Arden B earrings | Guess watch | Express shorts | Boutique pumps.

Friday Favorites: Spring Shoes

Happy Friday!!  For this week's Friday Favorites, I would like to showcase my favorite shoes for this upcoming season.  I'm estimating that the following shoe styles will be very prevalent in my Spring blog posts.  Check them out, and let me know what you think!

1) Platform heels - I love the chunky platform open-toe heels because they are great for warm weather and shorts/skirts.

2) Pumps - These brightly colored pumps are the perfect addition to any outfit for the Spring.

3) Accented Mary Jane Heels - The femininity of these heels bring out the delicacy of the upcoming season, and nude shoes go with everything!

4) Wood-bottom heels - These are the ultimate daytime shoe because they give you the right amount of height and color, yet remain casual at the same time.

5) Chunky, low heels - I like to throw these on when I'm running daytime errands and they go great with floral prints or shorts as well.

Day to Night: Glistening in Red Heels

For today's post, I have featured an OOTD (outfit of the day) that can be transformed from day to night.  I wore it as a daytime look to run a few errands.  Whereas I typically wear 4-1/2 - 5-inch heels, I decided to rock a shorter heel with this look because I knew that I would be doing plenty of running around.  What is wonderful about this pairing is that it can be revamped to a night time look as well.  (i.e. I might simply pair it with black skinny jeans, layer it with a leather jacket, and some tall booties).  Enjoy!

What I'm wearing:
H&M sweater
H&M shorts
Forever 21 necklace
Nine West handbag
ALDO heels
