Pebble Beach was the perfect backdrop to kick start our amazing weekend… and for a couple quick snaps of one of my favorite summer outfits – the romper. It’s super comfortable, easy to wear, and a great piece to layer with. Whether it’s wearing it solo in the sun, with a sweater in the shade, or a blazer for a fun dinner out, rompers are definitely going to be in heavy rotation for me this summer.
Looking for a last minute card idea for your Valentine? Look no further!
All you need is:
- Fold card stock in half.
- Use a white crayon to write a note, dray a symbol, whatever comes to you! – the tricky part here is you can’t see what you are writing… so I recommend the shorter the better 🙂
- Using watercolor paints, I did an ombre design on top of the crayon to reveal the sweet design!
- Let dry and gift to your favorite valentine(s)!
It is very hard for J.Crew to do wrong in my book… and their jewelry department is no exception. I’m especially loving what they have come out with and wanted to share my wish list! What is your favorite J.Crew jewelry piece?
Summer is definitely my favorite season, but sadly I can’t fight the cool weather that is approaching…
Luckily for me the fall season won’t be so sad with this fab new Zara jacket I just scored! Thank you Penny 🙂
What are you most looking forward to wearing this fall?
I am not a big DIYer… but when it comes to jewelry I sometimes make an exception. I used to be big into making my own jewelry in high school, but once I started college, I outgrew the hobby. So when I found my old jewelry/beading containers a couple weeks ago, I was excited to get back in the jewelry making game! I made a delicate beaded ombre necklace to match the Maya Brenner necklace my hubby got me with my new initials awhile back. Since then, I’ve caught the bug! I came across a gorgeous pendant at the bead store for and you can only imagine my surprise when I was surfing the Calypso St. Barth summer sale and saw this bracelet available for $70!
Materials: Center Bead, Hemp Cord
Step 1: Thread the cord through the bead.
Step 2: Take the right side string (we’ll call it String 1) and place it under the left side (we’ll call this String 2) – make a backwards 4.
Step 3: Take the end of the String 1 and loop it through the hole you’ve made.
Step 4: Tighten the string to create a knot.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 1-4 until bracelet is the desired length.
Step 6: Repeat on both sides to complete your bracelet.
Enjoy the perfect summer accessory and the fact you’ll be saving $65!
