Recently for Chorus I had to go to graduation and sing as part of a mandatory assignment. I wasn’t too happy that I had to stay till around nine at night on the last day of school but then it resulted on a shopping trip to get the outfit we had to wear. My chorus teacher asked that we wear either khaki pants and a white shirt or we go with a nice simple white dress. We were aloud to wear any shoes and accessories we wanted so that allowed me to have fun and play with making an outfit. I always hear about how hard the hunt for a perfect white dress can be but I was able to find my dress within one day after looking in two stores that didn’t have the dress for me. Almost my entire outfit came from Rue 21, the shoes came from Marshalls. I was kind of glad that singing at graduation resulted in me getting an absolutely beautiful dress which is also perfect for this amazing upcoming summer.

When you look at this outfit you may not see much bohemian because of the jewelry. The dress alone is sort of Bohemian because of the flower print lace and because of how it flows. It’s loose and free and if I paired it up with a dream catcher necklace or a head band that ran across my forehead you would be able to see the bohemian. Instead of going that route I went with a more glitzy side because I love my shiny things. I went with this necklace because it was long and brought in a lot of attention to the top of the dress and kind of added a surprising element since people wouldn’t really expect to take a dress such as this one in that sort of direction. The earrings match the necklace perfectly but what I love about them is how they look like they are floating and not connected to my ear! The bracelets had to have some white incorporated into them because then it would be too much gold. I did the same thing with adding white to the shoes because it added more attention to the outfit and jewelry rather than the feet and it didn’t over power the outfit with more gold. These shoes were very comfortable for having a small heel on them. I was able to walk around all day without feeling any foot pain! I was able to look glitzy with a dash of bohemian without walking around as if I was a new born horse trying to stand up for the first time.

Just a while back I got some super cute and comfortable combat boots at Rue 21. I love wearing them with jeans in the winter because when I have jeans that don’t fit length wise I can always wear those boots to cover it up. I then started thinking for more ways I can style those boots and I thought about how cute it would be to wear them with a dress or a skirt. I tried it on with one of my dresses that matched the boots and it looked good, but it was missing something. It was missing something on the legs, so I though about boot socks. I don’t own any boot socks, so I went to go buy some. The problem was that when I went looking, I never found anything unique or different. So I decided that I was going to try and make my own.

What you will need to make your own DIY buttons boot socks are buttons (your choice of color and preferably smaller size), thread the color of the buttons you are using, a sewing needle, long socks, scissors, and if you don’t know how to sew you can use fabric glue. Although I have to admit that I don’t know how the fabric glue is going to hold the buttons after washing. I’ll update you on that once I wash them. Before you start sewing or gluing make sure you have enough buttons because you are going to need a good amount of them. Also, before you start sewing or gluing you need to lay out the buttons out on the sock they way you are going to sew them on. Make sure that there are more buttons on because the sock will later stretch out giving more space between each button. Once you have the buttons arranged the way you want it, start sewing them in. It may take a while depending on how good you are with sewing or gluing. Once I finished with the sock I tried it on and the hard work definitely paid off. The socks were super cute and even cuter with the boots. This is definitely a cheaper and cuter way to get boot socks.
