DIY Sandals

01diysandals
Wearing sandals in the summertime is nothing groundbreaking, but that doesn't mean you can't shake things up a bit. What better way to stand out in a sea of sandals than DIY your own pair? It's not rocket science, all you need are some crafty items, a pair of scissors, glue, 10-15 minutes, and of course sandals. Shall we begin?

1. Grab a plain pair of sandals from the back of your closet that you want to jazz up or do what I did and get these black and white ones from F21. I love how simple they are and the wider strap makes it easier to work with.

2. Gather your tools and embellishments. It really depends on what you want to do with your sandals... jewels, beads, studs, etc. The possibility is endless! For my DIY, I decided to use flat-back pearls and striped ribbon (both purchased from Michaels).

3. I started with the black pair and simply glued each pieces of pearls carefully onto the strap. Easy as that!

4. The white pair was a bit trickier since I had to measure and cut the exact amount of ribbon that is going to cover the entire strap. Once the ribbon is ready, I applied glue onto the back and carefully placed onto the strap.

Voila! Just like that and I've got my new sandals that no one else has!

Mix and Match Swimwear

00mixswim
Summer is just around the corner and I've got a serious case of wanderlust. Dreaming up the perfect tropical getaway is exciting but the thought of packing isn't so much fun. Although swimwear tends to take up very little room, I still try to think of ways to pack as light as possible. Because I am a girl and I have only two feet but somehow I bring six pairs of shoes even if it's just for the weekend! One of my solution is mix and match swimwear. When you have tops and bottoms that can be interchangeable, 4 pieces of swimwear can get you 4 different looks instead of 2! Pretty brilliant, right?

Tutti Frutti

02fruity
I am sure you all know of Tutti Frutti as a frozen yogurt chain, but did you know that it means "All Fruits" in Italian? Well, I didn't. A fruit print chiffon dress with embroidered watermelon, pineapple, pear, cherry, apple and banana, paired with a peachy apple bag... this outfit of mine sure is the epitome of Tutti Frutti! Another thing I love about this dress is how the tied waist details in the front makes it look like a two-piece! Sneaky sneaky! Anyways, this is getting me real excited for summer, even though the past few days have been nothing but gloomy. Hope everything cheer up soon!

Roses and Cat

01rosecat
It was a warm afternoon, I slipped into this lovely dotted dropwaist dress with bow details and took my cat (bag) out to the rose garden. I love this time of the year when everything is in full bloom, so beautiful! Coincidentally, a neighborhood cat decided to come out and play as well! How purrrfect! Although I must admit that it did take awhile to lure it to pose with me in my photos but it was worth the effort! On top of that, I also felt like a ballerina in these stripes laced up espadrilles!
