DIY Lace-up Crop Top Refashion Tutorial

Hello sunshine and warm weather!!

Who else is loving this weather?? I am very much a spring-summer girl at heart and these days bring me so much joy! All I can say is: thank you, God!!!

I have a another DIY Tutorial video to share today! It's an easy refashion and perfect for now and for (even) hotter days later! The lace-up in the front allows you to loosen it up for over a swimsuit or pull it tighter for a more modest option! (I wore a nude tank under mine and kept it more open)

The crop-top style is so in right now although it can be a little tricky to style without looking like the youths (please let me know if you got that show reference! haha) But if worn right, it plays so well with proportions and looks great and grown-up with a high-waisted pant or skirt. I really am enjoying the high waisted style too, along with the looser fit. I have been wearing these white wide legged denim pair (from Old Navy) nonstop. If you follow me on Instagram then you know! - I am reaching for them more often then skinny jeans because they feel a bit more dressy to me.

I have enjoyed making these videos to share the DIY process! Although I have a lot more to learn in videography, has it been easier to understand and follow along? Do you prefer this method or you liked the photo / step-by-step method better? Would love to hear your feedback, good or bad!

You can watch the video tutorial here!

What do you think? Is this something you will try? Thanks so much for reading!

With Love,

Wedding Guest Style : DIY Floral Wrap Skirt


We have been having the MOST bi-polar spring here in Virginia! I know some of you are also experiencing this and that makes me happy that we are not the only ones (What can I say? Misery loves company- haha). But you can rest assured: it will be warm sooooonnnnn!

With that being said, wedding season is upon us and I know many of you are planning on attending a wedding this spring or summer and are already thinking of what to wear as a guest!
For your man, I am SO excited to post about The Black Tux!

This type of service was not available when I was getting married and I really wish it was!  With so many options for ladies like rent-the-runway, the guys in our life also need a service where they can rent a modern, high-quality tux without worrying about affording to purchase it and the unnecessary need of owning it! (Some may have the lifestyle that requires owning a tux but usually, it is bought for a special event then just gathers dust in your closet!)

Check out The Black Tux here: for you next formal event or wedding!! I've included a great infographic at the bottom of this post: It will help you decide what is appropriate to wear to what type of wedding!

As for the ladies, the most perfect and versatile wrap skirt!
Check out the video tutorial here!

I really love wearing dresses to weddings because they are one-and-done: just add a few accessories and you look put together! But I love the way a skirt can be worn so many different ways! This can easily be dressed up, like I am wearing it, with a neutral top and some strappy heels. But it would also be great for a beach wedding: throw on some espadrilles and a straw hat and it's perfect!!

(Pair with a white tee and white sneakers and its perfect for the farmers market tooo!) :)

Hope you enjoy the photos and check back soon so you can see how easy it is to make your own!

Thank you so much for reading!

With Love,
