DIY - Embellished Sandals

apologies folks, this post should have gone up last week! I neglected the most important button in a post, Publish! LOL But without further ado, a quick and easy DIY!

Early in the summer I started seeing simple embellished sandals all of stores, Instagram and on my friends! My favorite J/Crew pair sold out almost instantly. Not surprising, knowing J.Crew, but even though I loved them, I didn't love the price. So I set out to make my own, on the cheap!

I was able to get the perfect sandal from Old Navy (which happen to be the most comfy ever!!), on sale and jems from a local craft store. I laid out the jems in a few different variations before settling on my favorite. Glue and dry. BAM!



I even made a pair for each of my besties, and now we text before brunch on sandal dibs!!! ;) Go make a pair and enjoy all the warm days left!

'vest'ie!

Vest-ie, like bestie....well maybe not.

But ok, so last year I realllly wanted the camo vest from J.Crew, well I never got it. But now it's at J.Crew Factory, and it's on sale soo.....so I mean it's kismet! Can't wait to wear it!!! ;) (yes, I bought it!) 


I love vests! They make transitioning into cold weather much easier! And then when full on winter hits, you can have a cute extra layer under your jackets! Here are more favorites!!! (Esp that first one, some one get it for me!!!)

this week

this week....

9 Must-Haves for a California Eclectic Home
no correlation to the below. I just like it, and we are finallllly 
starting to shop for a new dinning room!  {image}

I've been loving all the new pre-Fall items at J.Crew. I blame the cloudy weather, and over-AC'd office (which is freezing!). Don't get me wrong I am not wishing colder weather at.all.not.at.all.

I really want this skirt, dainty earrings and this dress. And while we are at it I think I might need to procure this cute charger, since my phone can't seem to last through the day!

Did you see this pregnancy announcement? So cute! (No I am not on that baby-train)

I finally ordered from Fabletics (work-out gear), obsessed! Such great quality! Has anyone else?! Now I want it alllll :)

Hope you had a fabulous week!

lately

I've been really bad at blogging lately, I'm blaming the warm summer weather! I mean after a brutal winter the last thing anyone wants is to sit at a computer any longer! Am I right?!

But one thing I haven't given up is my completely obsessive pinning!!! Pretty much every commute, and before bed I add more! Follow along to see what is currently inspiring me!


Do you follow anyone on Pinterest that you 'just love'??? Share, I always love following more people!

let's go shopping - 6/12



1. Copper Mug(s) - It's almost summer, which means I need Moscow mules...Lots, preferably, outdoors on a patio and I think my own is perfect!!!
2. Bauble Bar Metal Studs - yep, I need these!!!!
3. Madewell Denim Track shorts - long bike rides and the seams in regular denim shorts don't really agree with my lady bits (if you catch my drift! LOL) and these cuties aren't gym shorts so I wont feel under-dressed when we enviably stop for drinks!
4. Loeffler Randal Slides - come to jes...ME! easy sandals are my jam this summer!
5. Bauble Bar Tassel Necklace - I haven't purchased a new necklace in forever
6. Target Pouf - I have a pouf, but a house needs two to be complete right? I think so, and my reasoning is our new place is bigger!

let's go shopping!


  1. Foley & Corina Mid City Tote - I've wanted one of these for as long as I can remember, I think one in navy is just what my closet needs! 
  2. J.Crew Lace Eyelet Top - I can't get enough lace right now, and I mean I am 'Queen of White Blouse' (it's a new kingdom in Game of Thrones, just you wait!) 
  3. Club Monaco Narella Dress - I bought this dress last summer in a blue/white pattern and pretty much wore it weekly. So glad they came back! Now do I add peach or black? 
  4. Loeffler Randall Flats - LR is slowly taking over my shoe closet and I don't mind! I love the style, quality and fit of their shoes! This might be pair #4! 
  5. Madewell Side-Zip Dress - stripes, no brainer! But with zips, how fun!!! 

What is on your shopping list right now? In addition to the above, I also need one more pair of shorts & I'd love some white BF jeans!

house plants

House plants.

I love them.

My husband, he does not.

We have one fiddle leaf (and a teeeeeny fern), and I keep trying to add more. Why don't boys understand things like girls do?! ;) I love the way they breathe life into a room & add some dimension. I think I'd be happy owning this plant stand with a big ol indoor tree/palm/fiddle in it! ....who will win this battle?!?!!? *evil laugh here*

let's go shopping!


Spring might have decided to skip us this year, so I guess it's ok to 
start thinking of summer clothes & trinkets as well! I think I want them all!
Yes, those shorts might not the first choice for someone about to 
turn 31, but ..... for the beach or whatevs! I like 'em!
