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!!!)

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!
