Hola from New Mexico, fourth stop during my big road trip! Today, I am teleporting you into the magical world of my style in an super extraordinary situation, like living in a not "four seasons" type RV (with no mirror and shoe shelf) that is always moving moving moving. Gosh! And although I probably looked a little bit cuckoo while posing in dangerously high heels (the higher the heels the safer she feels when in venomous snake state) inside a truckstop in the middle of the desert, but, hey, sometimes you need to do it for a win (blog, ha!)! Yes, I can write a whole book about it!
I decided to enter the #BloglovinHMAwards16 contest one week ago, when I came back home for only one day for some sale shopping and repacking before my next #wildwildwest adventure. I have a lot of stunning, special, colorful and flowy summer H&M dresses, skirts, pants I could go on with, but those DIY jeans were definitely a #roadtrip piece to shoot.
If you have been following my blog, you would know how much I love jeans (I moved to New York 4 years ago with 30 Samsonites full of dresses and half of them were replaced with all sort of jeans next two days!) but even more I love to make them unique, give them more personality. It is just taking your whole outfit to the next level.
I embroidered my H&M mom jeans with hand painted road sign patches a year ago and since that time they are my favorite ones! It took almost a week to draw all the patches but it worth the time. Right? Unfortunately, I did not make a DIY post with all the steps, but you can check out another DIY denim tutorial here. And, of course, feel free to ask me any questions, I will be happy to help you create your own statement ones!
I wanted to pair them with my favorite white So Kate pumps and a simple nude tee to keep it clean and sexy as I wore it before (check it here) and got one hundred compliments. But somewhere in Oklahoma I spilt coffee on it, so I had to figure out a way to put my "want to win" outfit together. Lucky me I have a white shirt dress in my luggage and a nickname Edward Scissorhands (Needleandthreadhands, ha!) to transformed it into a trendy raffle top! I think I have to post more DYIs. Because not every standout outfit needs to enlist a major budget and all the significant labels in the world. Sometimes, the outfit is at its best when it lets your creativity shine- and that is exactly what I would learn from brilliant Leandra (she is the best at it!) if I won!
Wish me luck and have a wonderful #SundayFunday, while I am stretching my legs on a farm somewhere in Rincon, New Mexico! (More on my Instagram @LNESTYLE)
