DIY Parisian Chanel °5 Flower Arrangement

DIY FLOWERS 010 DIY FLOWERS 005 DIY FLOWERS 008 DIY FLOWERS 015I love the idea of simple, delicate and feminine floral arrangements for event decor. This idea of re-creating a vase to look like a classic Chanel °5 perfume bottle is just that. With very simple steps and very little materials, you can create this chic arrangement for bridal showers, tea parties, really any girly event.

All that you need is a thin square vase, a printed Chanel °5 label (easily found on the internet) a few drops of pink food coloring and flowers of your choice. I do think hydrangeas are the perfect flower for this style of arrangement, but really any flower you love could look lovely. I’m usually not a rose kind of girl, but I do think white roses would look très chic ;)

I hope I’ve helped brighten up your Monday with this darling DIY. Have a wonderful week!

Here’s the label to print:

Flowers for Fall

It may be the beginning of Fall, but I’m holding on to florals. The best way to transition florals into Fall is to keep the colors neutral, like this adorable shift dress from Desigual. Shift dresses are great pieces that work with heels, sandals and even sneakers! They’re so fun to get creative with. Did I mention this Desigual dress is currently on sale? Heck yes!

I was definitely feeling a retro vibe when I styled this dress-I felt like a more modern go-go girl with my high pony and sky high heels! Plus this print is so seventies.

I hope you’re enjoying your week, tomorrow is Friday! That’s always a reason to celebrate in my book ;)

DIY Bridal Party Decor

Engagement Party DIYWhen I received these Bon Affair wine spritzers, I knew that they were too pretty not to create a table-scape around. I thought of the idea of a simple engagement/bridal and the theme of “He Popped the Question”, since Bon Affair is a wine spritzer. To create the sign, I used chalk paper and a wooden frame and simply glued the two together.

Engagement Party DIYI took these already pretty mini bottles to the next level of cuteness by tying around them a matching ribbon and straw.Engagement Party DIYI loved the idea of keep things simple, feminine and classy. You can never go wrong with black, white and gold. Add a touch of polka dots to give a girly twist!Engagement Party DIYContinuing with the wine theme, I used two corks glued together to hold the name tags.Engagement Party DIYThe finishing touch was the rock candy, which I thought was a cute idea for a bride who just got a “rock”.

Skortin’ Around

Skort & Strappy Heels Skort & Strappy Heels Skort & Strappy HeelsSkort & Strappy HeelsSkort & Strappy Heels


Can you all believe it’s already September? I just have no idea where time goes. It feels like I was just getting ready to go neon and floral crazy with my wardrobe and now here I am getting all my favorite Fall hues into place in my closet. Nuts!

Outfits like today’s post are something that I’ll be fortunate enough to wear deep into the Fall, since Miami won’t hit sweater weather probably until late October/November. But, as soon as that chill in the air comes my way I can’t wait to pair this skort and many of my other skirts with sweaters, especially cropped ones.

A little about this outfit, I love unexpected color combinations. A rich royal blue with a soft pink blush doesn’t seem like a likely pair, but combining those offset colors really compliments each other. Never be afraid of mixing color! As long as one of the seperates in your outfit is a neutral, you’ll almost always be good to go!

Have a wonderful short week! It’s already Hump-Day!

DIY Fall Picnic Setup

DIY PROJECTS 158 DIY PROJECTS 171 DIY PROJECTS 139 DIY PROJECTS 142 DIY PROJECTS 148 DIY PROJECTS 159What better way to welcome Fall than a latte picnic? In my book, a morning or evening with friends sipping warm lattes and enjoying each other’s company sounds like the perfect Fall day.

Four things to ensure your pretty little picnic is delicious and Fall inspired:

  1. Big latte cups. Bigger latte cups are more comfortable to drink from while sitting on a blanket or cushions. You can pour a good amount of drink into them, without filling to the brim so they won’t spill.
  2. Donut Kabobs. No needs to get your hand all sticky covered in powdered sugar. Grab a stick and enjoy three yummy flavors!
  3. Spoon stirrers. Want to add a delicious touch to your latte? Cover spoons in melted dark chocolate then sprinkle toffee bits on top to give your drink that added pizzazz.
  4. Fresh flowers! No picnic is complete without them.

Ready SET Go

Fashion Union Set Fashion Union Set Fashion Union Set Fashion Union Set Fashion Union Set Fashion Union Set Fashion Union SetSet: Fashion Union

You know here at Sugar Love Chic, I’m all about versatility. While I do indulge in a splurge every now and then, but when it comes to fashion, unless I can get some really great use out of something then it probably won’t be coming home with me. That’s exactly why I love sets so much. Wear the pieces together or wear them with other seperates, one set can offer a girl so many options! This set I’m wearing is from Fashion Union. Let me start by saying it’s quickly become one of my favorite shopping sites.Talk about awesome styles at awesome prices. Their sets are some of my favorite pieces, they’re right on trend.

Since sets tend to be show stoppers on their own, I like to let them steal show and add simple accessories that keep things sleek.

P.S. Don’t forget to check out my giveaway in my last post, you still have until Thursday to enter!
