DIY Fruit Earrings

DIY Fruit Earrings What are your favorite things about summer? I have a long list, but it includes drippy ice cream cones, overflowing gardens, late night sunsets, and all the fresh fruit. I decided I needed to memorialize something from summer that I could wear all year round, acting as a little reminder of those blissful summer months. My solution? DIY Fruit earrings! Little beaded gems reminiscent of apples, oranges, and pineapples! In punchy colors, these are the perfect touch to an outfit that just needs a little something. Inspired by some sold-out earrings J.Crew created a few months ago, this is a simple DIY that will guarantee a mood boost on a dreary day.DIY Fruit Earrings

Rickrack Blouse Three Ways

Ric Rac blouseHave you noticed that rickrack has seen a bit of a resurgence? You know, the zig zag ribbon that you’d often see on little girls dresses in the 90’s? Its hay day was in the 70’s when mod little dresses were adorned with loads of rickrack in punchy primary colors. You would see it on the hems of dresses, skirts, and aprons, as well as on sleeves, waistbands, and collars! I have a few vintage aprons from my grandmother with rickrack that I adore! When I began to see it more and more places, I couldn’t have been happier. It adds a fun kitschy touch to whatever it’s applied to.

To show just how much we love it, we’re showing you how to make a rickrack blouse three ways! We added it to the button band, the collar, and to various seams. Pick a blouse in need of a pick-me-up and add some rickrack to do the job!

Check out all the different options!

Paper Flower Bridal Hair Piece

Paper Flower Bridal Hair Piece

Is there anything better than getting dolled up, wearing sequins and sparkles, and feeling like a queen? Those opportunities are few and far between so when they arise, we jump on the opportunity. Inspired by the styles from the Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2014 Runway, we wanted to create an ethereal, paper flower bridal hair piece that would be pretty enough to don on your wedding day! Certainly not your traditional hairdo for a fancier occasion, this is certain to turn heads! All that’s required is crepe paper, floral wire and tape, and some glue. And can we talk about that dress? It’s no longer available but everything BHLDN does is flawless! We’re swooning over the whole thing!

DIY Rainbow Woven Tote

DIY Rainbow Woven Tote

Summer is here, which means you’re heading to the beach, the pool, the farmer’s market! Jetting off on summer vacations left and right! If only life could always be summer, right? Anyways, with all the fun excursions I know you’ll be taking, you’ll need a cute tote to carry your sunglasses, sunscreen, and summer reading materials. Woven tote bags scream summer and we fell in love with this circular design by Loom & Field, whose store is chalk-full of beautiful things! We decided to give it a Lars touch so we painted on a rainbow, of course as inspired by this one from Vanessa Seward. This DIY painted woven tote will become your go-to bag for the summer. Bonus points if you buy the matching shoes and earrings because there is no such thing as too much rainbow!

Lady Liberty Flower Crowns

Lady Liberty Flower CrownsFourth of July is fast approaching and I’m already thinking about how I’m going to celebrate. Holidays require looking your best, but I’ve never been one to go for the traditional flag t-shirt and denim shorts. This year I looked to Lady Liberty for some patriotic inspiration and came up with some red, white, and blueLady Liberty flower crowns! You can’t look your best without a crown, am I right? Ask any royal out there, and I can assure you they’d agree. With little more than fresh flowers, you can create a headpiece even Lady Liberty would be proud of!
