So long summer, hello the season of layers! I’m always excited when the temperatures drop enough to start layering. Any excuse to pull out my trench coat is a happy day for me! I bought it when I was in Spain last year so it makes me extra happy wearing it because it reminds me of my wonderful, life-changing trip and I know I look good making me extra confident in it.
There’s something about wrap tops that are universally flattering. Personally, I believe it’s because these tops are available in a number of versions yet universally highlight or create the illusion of a trimmer waist and an hour glass figure. Bonus is that the bows tied on these tops don’t feel juvenile, but can work for people of all ages.
This is a super simple DIY that may not turn out so great when you first try if you’ve never used the decorative stitches on your sewing machine before. But after a few practice runs it’ll be a breeze to make these DIY embroidered bandanas!
Move over glass slippers here comes an equally awesome glass necklace! I was at Jo-Ann buying some material for a different DIY project when I came across these awesome glass cube beads by Blue Moon. I bought them not knowing what I’d use them for. When I go home, I quickly realized that I loved them most when they were strung together. It’ll probably take you longer to gather the materials for this tutorial than it takes to make this DIY glass necklace!
Classic are classic for a reason. You can repeatedly wear them and never get tired of it. Classic strips, classic midi skirt, classic denim shirt, classic heels. Sometimes you need to go with the classics so you can get out the door.
This trendy piece of jewelry has been red hot since spring this year and it’s super easy to make. I’m not sure why anyone would want to buy these when you can salvage the materials from old jewelry and make them over into something fresh like this DIY wrap lariat!
I’ve missed you all! So sorry to take a hiatus without warning for the last month. I’ve been a bit busy and my plate was overflowing. I needed to put something on the back burner for a while and unfortunately it had to be this blog. But that’s the beauty Right Where I Left Off! I created it with the intention of always returning to it and picking up right where I left off and continuing to explore life right where I left off no matter how long or short of a break I may take.
But enough about my break, more about travel and packing! I love smart packing. There’s tons of great articles on different packing methods, I constantly share my packing lists and tips whenever I think of or find new ones under the category “In My Bag“. But I’ve found some new ones that I wanted to share with the theme of doing double duty! Read More
Recently it feels like I’ve only been posting DIYs related to my sister and her upcoming nuptials (bachelorette decor, packing list, etc.). That’s probably not going to end anytime soon, at least not until the wedding in October. And now I’m adding one more to the list – DIY invitations and table name cards! We threw my sister and my soon-to-be-brother-in-law a belated engagement party, that may be more accurately called a wedding shower. I helped out by making some invitations and the table cards via Canva.
Hot damn, it’s been a hot start to the summer! I miss my days in schools in San Diego where I had short days and summer break because all I want to do is lounge by the beach and enjoy the ocean waves in the afternoons. Instead of being stuck in an office being sunned by florescent lights and the glow from my computer monitors. To cope with it all, I daydream about what I’d wear for a day on the beach or on a tropical getaway in this hot, hot, heat.
I was browsing Free People’s sales during Memorial Day Weekend and came across this awesome belt. Being the crafty person I am, I thought I could make my own DIY layered chain belt because I had made a chain belt the other month and had all the materials for it already from my layered chain necklaces DIY.
