DIY tee inspo from Free People

We The Free Sunkissed Tee

I love the tee with the bare back and the exposed bralette.  I'd say it's as easy as just cutting a fave vintage tee down the middle (or being more dramatic and creating a deep V) and tying at the bottom back and voila you're all done:)  

If you don't feel like finding a tee...or cutting your tee:)  Just buy this fab tee here.

On The Range Spotted Romper

The beaded tassel necklace is the new must-have accessory

I'm seeing these necklaces everywhere and finding they are either really expensive or look really cheap.  The other day I saw a lady and had to ask where hers was from and she made it!  So today I decided to check out etsy and everything was $25 and less and the color combos were super cute!  Here are a few that caught my eye.

Loving the multiple color strings in this tassel!  It will go with everything!:) 

Only $19 in a variety of colors.

This version is $25, but I love the mix of beads on this!

This is $15 and the seller is from Turkey.  Loving the different beads on this!  

Here are some blogs sharing how to DIY the necklace:

Watch out mumu the Turkish towel dress is my new go to piece for poolside getaways

***Sorry, I had to share this immediately tonight in my hotel room:)

Ok, I'm addicted to turkish towels!!!  I have turkish towels and use as a towel, love for drying my curly hair, use it as a beach towel and blanket:). Still working on using it as a scarf or wrap:). But, I make sure I use my towel in all ways:). 

Recently, I found out that there was such thing as a hooded Turkish robe and jumped on that for India.  Perfect for drying quickly and not getting too hot in warm climates like India:)

But, today in San Diego when I decided to check out this surfer shop (Island Surf, 619-435-1527) I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this Turkish towel dress!  Pure brilliance!  It's by a company called, Primitive.  I loved the style with pockets...but, there is also one without.  This just seems like a fun summer dress, resort wear or pool side cover-up:). I'll be using it for everything!:)

Zara shows how to rock a dress with flats that look like Birks

Tons of travel essentials from J. Crew

I love J. CREW!  Every month I have to have the catalog and anytime I see a store I have to go in and be inspired by the styling of the displays, of course the new clothes, check out the sale section and see what fun little things they have in the extras and accessories section.

Since I'm moving to India soon I have travel essentials on the mind:). Here are a few items I saw in store that I think make travel a little, ok a lot more fun and fancy:

The fashionable way to stay organized: 

Keep the passport pretty:

I'm going back for this!  I've been wanting a rose gold hair tie bad:). They also had rose gold Bobbie pins.  These are perfect for red eyes when the hair needs to to up:)

I already love my electronics and can't say not to making them even more fab with accessories like these:
