Weddings are always exciting. Most of the time they’re not in the city you’re living in so packing for a wedding usually means packing for a destination wedding. Often I extend the trip into a vacation. When my sister and soon to be brother-in-law chose Maui as the location of their wedding I knew I’d be taking a few extra days to myself to explore the island and possibly another island before heading back home. Check out my tips on what I’m putting in my bag: packing for a destination wedding!
This is a break from the regularly scheduled DIY tutorials, travel tips and style posts. Every now and then (usually around the new year), I take some time to reflect. The reason for these birthday musings is because I turned twenty-five last week. I’m a quarter of a century old now!
Alright, I’ll admit this is not exactly a complete DIY tutorial. I did make this chambray dress DIY, but I didn’t document it very well. I didn’t want to haphazardly put together incomplete instructions for you all, but I really wanted to share a fun idea you can use the next time you make a top or dress!
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
