DIY: Lace Jeans

I always thought it would be pretty to have a lace detail showing through ripped jeans. I purchased these Rock & Republic Jeans that already had rips in them and were a perfect size to place lace under. For this extremely easy DIY, you will need a pair of already ripped jeans, thread, lace fabric, and a sewing machine. I measured my fabric to make sure that it was larger than the rip so there would be room to sew around it. You want to pick a thread that is close in color with your denim. Turn your jeans inside out and place the fabric where you want it, and sew it in place. I sewed my fabric about one inch from the rip on each side. I love how these lace jeans turned out. I think it adds a pretty and unique detail to your jeans.

Blue And White Maxi

Dress local boutique, Denim Vest gifted (similar), Bag Urban Outfitters, Headband World Market, Shoes Rampage (similar), Bracelets A.V Max, and Flee Markets 

Hey everyone! I can't believe we are already in the last week of September. I'm sorry for the lack of posts this past month. I have been so busy and my laptop hasn't been working properly. This month definitely just flew by. Anyways, I took these pictures back in August on my trip to Florida.  I love the ease and comfort of a maxi dress. A casual maxi dress that can be worn during the day is one of my favorite summer essentials. Although summer is over, a great way to continue to wear your maxi dresses into the fall is by adding a fun chunky knit sweater over it.
In this outfit I was definitely inspired by a 70's vibe with my braided headband and denim vest. This is definitely one of my go to looks for the summer, a maxi dress paired with a denim vest. It creates a cool, relaxed look which I love.

Pool Day

Cover Up Elif for Jordan Taylor, Bag Victoria's Secret, Sandals Rampage, Sunglasses gift from my dad (similar here and here), Bike Target

When I was in Florida I had so much fun riding my Aunt's bike to the pool. The front basket and bell reminded me of my bike when I was little. If you haven't heard of Jordan Taylor, I definitely suggest you go and check out their collections. They have so many amazing pool and beach cover ups in fun colors and patters. I love how they feel more like a dress than something you just threw on over your bathing suit. Unfortunately, the one I have is no longer available, but this one here is really similar to mine, except that mine has a ribbon which can be tied to make it more fitted. My Victoria's Secret Pink bag was perfect for my trip to Florida as it took up no space in my suit case and I was able to use it to carry everything I needed for the pool.
