Flower Child

I'm back from vacation with a *real* tan. If you were following along on IG (#BehrsSetSail) you know we had a blast on our cruise! (Did you catch my luggage that is on major sale right now?!) 

This was the first time I had been to Florida, and I was able to visit 3 cities - Miami, Key West and Fort Lauderdale. We went to Nobu in Miami, and it was a total celeb sighting fest! Key West was the absolute cutest, but I have to say that Fort Lauderdale was my favorite. Like seriously, pack-my-bags-and-move-me-there cute. My friends and I are already planning a visit back. I'll be posting a round up of our cruise details (including our trip to Cozumel) in the near future. 

I'm channeling my inner 70's flower child with this perfect posies tunic from Chicwish. I just love the detail of the crotched cutout trimming and the all over flowy movement. 

I scored these slides on clearance from Sage Threads Co, and they are currently only $16! (#notsponsored  - just sharing the good news!) They come in tan, as well. 

Speaking of shoes, did you catch my fun DIY Tassel and Pom sandals. I made them for less than $30 saving me hundreds compared to the designer pairs.

Have a beautiful Monday everyone!

DIY Pom + Tassel Sandals

Unless you've been living under a very unfashionable rock, you know that pom and tassel sandals are trending right now. Unfortunately, they almost always come with a steep price tag. Looking to save a few *hundred* bucks, I decided to make my own.
What you need: 

Pom poms
Colorful Cord
Plastic star beads
Lace-up Sandals - I bought these for $13!
Hot Glue
Jewelry String
(all the above items can be found at your local craft store, in the craft and jewelry sections)

What to do:

The instructions are easy and the sandals can really be assembled however you choose. For my pair, I  hot glued plastic star beads, decorative cord, and pom poms to the areas you choose. For the tassels, I tied them on with string, and hot glued them in place, to make sure they were secure. 

That's it!

I made these cuties just in time for our cruise! We're currently in Miami setting sail for Key West and Cozumel, to celebrate two of our best friends getting married. I'm rooming with my bestie, and the hubby is rooming with the boys. It's a combined bachelor/bachelorette party, and is going to be so much fun!

Gingham Dress

Gingham is to spring, as plaid is to fall. They just go together. We saw the print pop up all over the runways for spring 2015, but I'm happy to report that the trend is still going strong.

I just love this bold black and white gingham print. Best of all, this dress is under $34! I got these wedges a few summers back, but they are still so desired that they were just fully restocked. Yay! 

Keeping it short and sweet today, because I need to get ready for our upcoming trip. We leave for Miami to set sail on our cruise in two days!

Happy Friday everyone!

How To Do A Professional Blow Out At Home

Blow drying my hair is the bane of my existence. No really. I hate it. I hate it so much that I actually pay people to blow dry my hair for me. (Blow out salons were created for girls like me. Just sayin') When Fromm approached me to test drive their new brush collection, I was a little hesitant for this reason. I never anticipated discovering how much a brush (or brushes, in this case) could affect my blow out, and improve the results - best of decreasing overall blow dry time. (Holla!)
I used all three brushes for this blow out, and will continue to use them for blow outs to come, as they each serve a very specific function in the drying process.

The Hot Paddle - This thermal paddle brush is the first of its kind. The aluminum retains heat to reduce dry time, which I immediately noticed. A curved shape allows for lift at the root. I started with this brush on my wet hair and used it for the initial blow dry, until my hair was just damp.

Square Thermal - While my hair was just damp, I switched to this brush for styling while continuing the blow dry. The ceramic ionic coated barrel locks in moisture are you're drying, while the rippled ionic bristles increase overall contact with your hair. The square shape allow for a a variety of styling options - use a flat end to maximize smooth strands, tilt at an angle to create loose waves, or rotate fully to create tight curls. 

The Glosser - The last step in finishing off the look was perfected with this brush. It's made from boar  bristles which naturally contain an anti-frizz serum, making it the perfect finishing tool! Use this one when your hair is just barely damp and you're in the final styling stages.

What was most surprising to me after using these products, is how soft and shiny my hair looked and felt. Honestly, I could never have imagined how much a set of brushes would change my utter abhor for blowing drying my hair, but they truly did. Best of all, they are each less than $20! A small investment to avoid future frequent trips to the blow out bar. 

Kendra Scott Summer Collection

Bold floral prints, high slits, convertible sleeves and a plunging neckline are the essential components for the most desired maxi dresses of summer 2016. Which, interestingly enough, also sounds like the makings of the perfect Coachella outfit. (Tell me your IG feed isn't giving you major FOMO!) Usually to get your hands on this trend, you're looking at spending upwards of $150. Luckily, I found this one for less than $100, and it's currently on sale for $61! 

I feel like I always talk about the weather here, but really Colorado....snow? It snowed relentlessly Friday to Saturday night, leaving temperatures in the 30's all weekend - hence the indoor shoot here. (Thanks to the lovely security guard at Union Station for letting me snag these snaps before kicking me out for being in the "private" area. You the bomb!) 

Today, I'm back with the Blogger Nation babes sharing pieces from the Kendra Scott summer collection. Kendra designed these pieces with the Frech Riveria in mind, aiming to make a collection from moments and memories. Lately I have been finding myself gravitating more and more toward silver. I absolutely love the pieces they sent me! Kendra Scott is such an amazing brand, that I am honored to get to work with. If you haven't heard about "Kendra Gives Back", it's the philanthropic heart of KS where they will host private parties or in-store events, and give 20% of the profits in support of the specified charity or cause. This, and the fabulous jewelry, make Kendra Scott a staple in my closet. 

Don't forget to stop by and check out the other #FBloggerNation babes. It's the last post of the season for us, so be sure to send Amy, Jenna, Zahra, Shannon and Elizabeth some love!

The Perfect Mother's Day Gift

Give a girl a pair of pearls and she can conquer the world. The same is true for any precious metal, like silver. When combined together, they make for a dynamic duo. Today, I've teamed up with LAGOS to feature a pair of sterling silver and pearl earrings from their Luna collection- just in time for Mother's Day.

These earrings are the perfect balance of classy and contemporary, making them suitable for both black-tie affairs, and casual weekend looks. With Mother's Day around the corner, LAGOS would make for the perfect gifting one-stop-shop. What mom doesn't love fine jewelry? I know mine does. 

I especially love this pair, because they are entitled "Luna" stud earrings. My great-grandmother's middle name was Luna, and it's a word/name that resonates with me and reminds me of her.  Are there any words/names that hold a special place in your heart?
