summer finds under $100!

Summer is HERE friends! I am so excited to kick off the summer season this weekend I can hardly stand it!  That means it is officially time to make sure our closets are stocked for the warm weather and summer activities that we are about to dive into. Today I rounded up some great wardrobe pieces all UNDER $100 that are just begging to be added to your (and my!) closet!

Easy and comfortable shorts, classic shoes, the cutest white dress and pink bow sandals are all giving me a serious 'add to cart' moment.  I tend to crave white and blue in the spring and summer and this season is no exception.  Of course, there is a little pop of color and as always a little pink involved too.  I love the effortlessness of the season and I am so excited to slip into more effortless pieces as the weather warms.  So do you have any big plans this weekend? We are hoping to hit up both the pool and the beach and of course, I am sure there will be some barbecuing and popsicles involved.  We will be cramming in as much fun as possible!

DIY the trend: pom pom straw tote!

As I mentioned earlier this week I am OBSESSED with the pom pom straw tote trend this season.  They just scream summer and add a fun bit of whimsy to any summer look. It's a look I knew I could easily DIY and I was right!   I recently snagged an inexpensive straw tote (this exact one is no longer available, but I linked to similar options below), some oversized pom poms and voila! In about 15 minutes I had the trend in my closet for way less money and I got to personalize it just how I wanted it!

Here are my tips for attaching the pom poms to the tote: you could definitely hot glue the poms on, but I wanted something less permanent so I simply sewed them on.  It was too hard for me to string the thread straight through the center of the pom so I experimented a bit and found that sewing an "x" over the center of the pom was the best way to attach them.  Think how you would sew a button on a shirt in an "x" formation, and do the same to the pom!  After experimenting a bit it only took me about 10 minutes to sew on the poms.  So easy!
