R & I were both there on Saturday, but I also had Friday & Sunday passes. Never been so tired in my life after this weekend but it was so worth it!

best way to spend the weekend days = brunch with your besties!

4th of July is almost here & we are so excited to be on a boat, drinkin’ a beer, and celebrating good ol’ America.
Here’s a step-by-step on how to create your own patriotic shorts!
buy a pair of old jeans from a thrift shop (these are old school Old Navy jean capris from Goodwill)
cut them into shorts ~ make sure not to cut them too short the first time, you can always cut more off later & get the perfect length
fray the bottoms of the shorts to get rid of the straight cut lines
spray paint the left side bright blue
use star stencils (found this sheet at Michael’s)
put the stencils over the blue & spray white. it takes several coats & careful spraying to get perfect stars. as you can see, these aren’t exactly picture perfect, but after a couple tries & coats you’ll get it.
spray paint the right side white
add some red lines & boom! all-American jorts.
you can even use the leftover denim to create a braided bracelet!
Ever since Rihanna showed up at Coachella with these ridiculous studded shorts, the trend caught on everywhere. Studded, destroyed, grungy denim shorts are definitely the casual trend this spring and summer. Celebs have been spotted wearing them and showing off their fun, edgy vibe.
The best part about this trend is it’s so simple to do it yourself! While there are brands that sell pre-studded shorts, you can turn an old pair of shorts, a pair of thrift store jean shorts, or even a pair of old jeans that you turn into cutoffs into studded shorts! In fact, the older the denim, the better.
Check out Studs and Spikes for tons of different studs, spikes, and other accessories to vamp up your shorts. If you need some instructions or ideas, there are tons of sites – including this website - that can teach you how to make the shorts & give you some ideas. Try grabbing an old pair of outdated shorts and adding some studs for a completely new look! Here’s some pre-studded shorts if you’re not in the mood for a DIY project.
Warmer weather means hot outside, cold inside, and confused employees everywhere. What can you wear to the office without looking like you’re headed to the beach while still staying cool and comfortable? I sketched out a few outfits to give you some ideas & I’ll keep updating with links to perfect pieces that I find, but for now, rummage through your closet and have fun creating these looks!
