I've recently come across the coolest pair of shorts bearing a not so cool price tag. They retailed for about $198 and I knew that I could make them myself. I ran out to Goodwill, picked up some high waist denim jeans, and began to cut and destroy. I then purchased a flag bandana because obviously no one can cut a real flag, shame on you if you thought I did so! Sewed it on by hand and voila! Overall, these cost me a total of $8 and came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Definitely a fun DIY project! -Made in America.

minty goodness

Spring time is finally here and the Florida weather has been feeling more like it lately. As we begin to transition into summer, my favorite colors of the season begin to fill the stores. Light pink, lavender, yellow, and my favorite, mint, have been in abundance and I couldn't be happier! On one of my usually weekly trips to target, I came across an amazing bag for $30. It is a light mint color that I tried to capture on camera. It goes perfect with pretty much every color! I'm absolutely in love with it and it is definitely going to be one of my staple pieces this summer.

H&M has amazing accessories and I recently picked up this bracelet that continues on with my mint obsession. The hints of gold and white accent the mint color and make this bracelet very versatile when accessorizing. I have a tiny wrist, but it fits perfectly. Being large in size it surprisingly isn't heavy which is what I was worried about. $9 well worth it!

My nail color of the week was Sally Hansen's Smooth and Perfect Color Care in Air. A very pale blue that looks great with a summer tan! Definitely an every day wearable color.

Forever 21, H&M, Zara, Victoria Secret and A'Gaci haul in my up and coming blog posts! Full of high waisted denim, bathing suits, and summer pieces! Have you found any favorite summer items so far?!
