matinee date.

IMG_1.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_8.jpgIMG_6.jpgIMG_9.jpgIMG_10.jpgIMG_11.jpglast week my husband and i went to a matinee movie. i had forgotten how nice it is to go to the theatre in the afternoon! to go in when it’s still light out, then to come out and still have the entire night to yourselves, it’s just perfect in my eyes. this is definitely something that i would like to do as a couple more often.

on a side note, while it was much too cold to be going without a jacket that day, i couldn’t help but not show off my lovely sparrow cardigan from anthropologie. it’s now for sale in the shop, so if you like it, you can make me an offer. :-)))

( … this cardigan is now sold!)

hair tie diy.

IMG_1.jpgtoday on hello scarlett, i am going to show you how to make the world’s easiest hair accessory. literally. there will be no gluing, stitching, or assembling.

IMG_2.jpgthis is what you will need:

– material of your choice

– scissors

IMG_3.jpgcut your hair tie to the length of your arm. i doubled mine since i wrap it twice around (in an attempt to quell my curls).

IMG_4.jpgthen tie,

IMG_5.jpgand enjoy!

i first started doing wearing this look a few weeks ago when my hair became long enough to put behind my ears, but still so short that i couldn’t keep it back in an elastic. lately, i’ve also been wearing it in its natural curly state hoping that it will grow faster.

IMG_6.jpg IMG_7.jpgthe first time that i did this diy, i made my hair tie out of twine. it blended so well with my hair that everyone thought that i had somehow tied strands into two bows. to make sure that you could see this tutorial, i chose bright pink. truman also insisted on being in these photos (but we were moving too quickly and they came out as a blur). he’s such a camera hog. ;-)

have a beautiful weekend, friends.

what i bought.

1.jpg 2.jpg 4.jpg

if there is one piece of fashion advice that you should follow, it’s this; every girl should have at least one little black dress in their wardrobe.

having tired of my last lbd, i went ahead and sold it in the shop. this meant that it was time for some online shopping. not only did i find a cutout dress, i also bought leggings, shoes, and a ring. i did find more than i had originally set out to buy, but because all four items came out to only $45, i couldn’t say no!

happy wednesday, friends. the weekend is fast approaching. :-)))

tree branch diy(s).

IMG_1.jpganyone by now can probably tell that the decor in little green leans more towards the natural and whimsical. bringing nature into your home is not only light on your wallet, but is big on your imagination. hello, creativity!

IMG_2.jpg IMG_3.jpglet’s start with a look at our hat rack. first inspired by  apartment therapy, i knew that as soon as i saw the idea to use tree branches in the place of hooks, hangers, and traditional coat racks, i was “hooked.” we spray painted ours white so that it would contrast nicely against our black wall.

IMG_4.jpgIMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgthese tree coasters were another great idea of ours. this time, i was inspired by emma’s diy of tree side tables, of all things. when i saw the first picture of a coffee cup resting on a tree stump, i immediately thought of coasters. it was a natural transition in my mind. so we made them, and i have loved them ever since.

IMG_7.jpg IMG_9.jpglast, but not least, is our last coat rack. this one can be found in little green’s little back porch. i still think that these racks look more like modern art than something useful. form follows function? more like function and form are completely on par. :-)))

i hope that everyone has had a nice long weekend. let’s all take time some out today to spend it reflecting, and perhaps, crafting.
