DIY Plain Napkin to Hand Painted Bandana

Straw hats, market bags, and bandanas- is there anything more summer? I’ve been on the hunt for a modern bandana for our upcoming trip to Japan and couldn’t quite find what I was looking for. There are some gorgeous ones out there, but excuse me for not wanting to pay $50 for essentially a sweat mopper. And then I saw this linen napkin on clearance from West Elm.

Curls and Pearls Natural Wedding Updo AKA The Modern Mermaid

Six Summer Statement Earrings to Swing into Style

May 18, 2017

Confession- I hate jeans. Hate, hate, hate it. Maybe it’s because I started exploring fashion at the height of the low rise and constantly had to battle keeping them up, but my style today is very loose dresses. My secret for looking pulled together even while wearing what my friends fondly call ‘pillowcase’ dresses? Statement pieces!

A crazy bold lip or cutout boots, bam! Instant cohesive and comfort. But because it’s summer and I now live in Florida, I’m looking to big earrings for heat friendly pieces. These six swinging summer statement earrings are what I’ll be wearing all season long.

1.Cities in Dust is one of my favorite Chicago jewelry designers. They’re at every maker’s fair with new collections, but this piece is my favorite.

2. Anthropologie’s summer lineup has me doing double takes. It’s leaning more modern than boho and I’m for it!

3. 90% of my jewelry collection is Madewell at this point. Seriously, look at the etched middle fringe.

4. These hold a special place in my heart- they were my reception earrings at my wedding! Online pics don’t do it justice.

5. Featured Etsy maker, Umya, is a self taught metalsmith with an amazing eye for shapes and details. Even the hooks on these earrings have detail!

6. In the same era of the low rise jean, Forever21 was the OG in statement pieces. Brave the mall (or better yet online) for big, simple shapes that you won’t be afraid to lose on vacation.

What summer pieces are you looking forward to?

12 Luxe + Pumpkin-less Fall Pillows

fall pillows

This cold weather snap is making me itch to change up the apartment, especially in the cuddle domain that is the living room! When we were decorating in the summer it was easy to find pieces that screamed, well, summer. But with a few investment pieces (and some surprising finds in the H&M home department) our little home is ready for apple cider and giant sweater blankets.
