Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine wherever you live. We’ve had sun as well as showers lately. But that’s ok. Rainy days are fun for crafting and DIYs.

I adore tassels! They can be used in so many ways like these simple ribbons tied to a dreamcatcher. This is a fun project & can be made in a day.

Tassels can be added to crocheted grannie squares and used as tree ornaments  for Christmas or as a suncatcher in a window.

Added to clothing, tassels add so much pizzazz! Just look at this beautiful dress by Balmain!!

Wrapped around the ankle, as these shoes show, tassels add a bit of subtle sex appeal.

Bohemian Woman

Hello gorgeous!

Recently someone mentioned on an online thrifting group I moderate, Thrifting, that they can’t  pull off the Bohemian look. I think we can all identify with that feeling regarding one style or another. So I want to share some “stylespiration” with you. Are you ready?! Let’s go!!

The bohemian woman woman is a free spirit. She is an explorer. She is creative. She is a peacekeeper. So her clothing must speak this.

Because she is so colorful, she chooses vibrant clothing. Sometimes she does this via fabrics or prints.

Lightweight, free flowing fabrics flutter about her gracing her silhouette.

She uses strategically placed accessories to complete her look.

Fringe, lace, leather, beads, tassles, embroidery. All these she calls her friends.

 

As you can see, there are many ways you can add this look to your wardrobe.  Think texture. c0acec84a01ca15ba6b4454cfdbc7db0Pair your shorts or jeans with a tee shirt and a cropped or long length coat with boots to gain a boho vibe. Toss on a long or chunky statement necklace, dangly earrings and some rings to complete your ensemble.  Below is an example of how I would create a bohemian summer look.

Or modify this look with a floaty maxi dress, beaded sandals, and a natural stone jewelry.

The Bohemian woman breathes easy. She is confident. She is fearless. She is in each of us.

Are you ready to take a walk on the wild side?

Words to live by

Hey dolls,

I am encourager by nature. I am also an optimist. In a word, I am an eternal “cheerleader”. But if I am honest sometimes even a cheerleader needs something or someone to lift her spirits. I hope you find inspiration in these quotes I found on Pinterest.
