A friend of mine on twitter @forheavensbake LOVES all things wooden. Side note – she runs a fantastic cupcake business and her red velvet really is THE BEST. I digress. Back to wood – she has totally gotten me to join the wood bandwagon and lately I’ve been scouring stores looking for interesting wood pieces that I can accessorize outfits with. I found some fabulous treats on Etsy from some amazing artisans – such beautiful work here. If you’re looking to get back in touch with nature and need some hand-crafted goodness for your summer wardrobe – look no further!
Love this bangle:
Reminds me of a black & white cookie, which I LOVE…unique earrings:
Braids can get a bad wrap – when I look back of pictures of myself in braids, I am, well, kinda dorky looking. However, over the last few seasons braids have come back with a bang! Not just the usual french braid or pony braid but all sorts of interesting and absolutely stunning looks. See which look could be right for your hair this summer – a braid is such a great way to keep your locks out of your face while maintaining that styled, fresh look you’re going for. I particularly love creating some sort of braid in my hair if I’m going to the beach so that I don’t look like a hot mess by the end of the day. If braids scare you, I suggest that you check out some online tutorials ( there are some great ones out there) and play around with some looks – you may just find one that you fall in love with! Here are some of my fave looks for the summer:

Well, that warm weather is here and it is just calling for some maxi dresses. For me, they are just the perfect fit for summertime. So easy and breezy – light and fun. You can be so creative with how you accesorize them, as well. Maybe add a structured blazer or cardigan on top, a great belt and some fabulous jewelry and you have one styled look for these hot, upcoming months. Here are a few that I found on Pinterest (my new fave go-to site!) that I adore, what do you think? Happy maxing!
