Valentines day is one of my favorite holidays because I love all the pinks, reds, and purples. My daughter is very girly and I always make her hair bows and other accessories.  This holiday season I wanted something that would be cute and special for my daughter to have that we can make together and she can make her friends for Valentines day. We will of course have to find something for the boys, but that should not be hard. These will be great gifts for all the girls because what girl does not love a beautiful hair accessory?

You can also make these extra glamorous if you would like and add other embellishments such as jewels, bows, tulle, additional ribbon while for the man on the house mens necklace pendants are a great accessory for him too.

What fun ways do you like to dress up for the holidays?
december 2013 110Hey Y’all, My name is Kari Scott, I am 27 years old. I am the owner of RaisedSouthern.com and correspondent for Blogger of the Month with Alabama Women Bloggers. I’m Mrs. Scott to my high school sweetheart for 12 years and Mommy to my intelligent hard-headed all-boy nine-year-old and my diva princess glamour girl, who is six years old. We live in very small community right on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. I am a Southern Girl to the fullest, born and raised. I love the beach (it has a special place in my heart), fishing, being outside, cooking, baking, crafts, painting, and most of all being with my family. You can also find me on FacebookInstagram, and on Pinterest.

Trends are ever-changing. I try not to get too caught up in being on trend. Rather, I focus on what makes me feel good that day. So, If I want to wear my prom dress, ‘B’ I’m a wear my prom dress! Here are 5 things I do to help me define my style:

Shop for the basics and build on that.  

My wardrobe is primarily things that I can wear in a variety of ways.  My jeans, tops and dresses are typically solid in color.  This allows me to mix and match more, add on to outfits with other statement pieces and be more creative with the options I have in my closet.

Add statement pieces. 

When you hear about statement pieces, jewelry and other accessories especially from Windsorfinejewelers.com are usually at the top of the list. For me, anything that is outside of my basics is also a statement piece.  A dress, shirt or skirt with a bold print or cool texture, jeans that are distressed and blazers / jackets add the right amount of umph to take your outfit to the next level.  It’s important to add the perfect little twist to your outfit to make it all about you, let your personality shine through, and if you’re a men using a mens necklace pendants could be the best choice to show style.

Play up your favorite feature.  

I like the shape of my body, so I wear things that accentuate it.  My dresses and skirts are usually fitted and/or have a high-waist.  I tend to go for midi to maxi length because it camouflages my knocked knees.  If you are not sure about your favorite feature think about what people compliment you on and go from there.  Beautiful lips? Consider a bold lip color.  Nice legs? Maybe shorts and a killer pairs of heels.

Wear what makes you happy and gives you confidence.

This should probably be number 1.  Too often, I find myself second guessing what to wear.  When I notice it, I stop, let my Gemini twin get me together (Shout out to all the crazy Geminis out there!), and wear what makes me happy.

Feeling and looking good are an instant confidence boost for me.  Some people say that we should put less effort into how we look and more effort into how you feel and make others feel.  Why can’t you do both? It’s like the social media conspiracy theorist who believe folks can’t support Black Lives Matter and also appreciate anything that isn’t BLM related #DontFallForTheDistraction.  Like bruh, I can do two things at once.  When I look good, I feel good.  In turn, I am nicer…. Who doesn’t like nicer?

My hair is a part of the outfit.

I think of my hair as an accessory.  It is actually my favorite accessory of all times!  A strong look for head to toe helps you to feel fab.  If you are going for a funky, edgy look make sure your hair complements it.  If you are going for chic create a hairstyle that says chic.
