DIY Tassel Necklace

Trend Alert!! Tassels are popping up in a lot of jewelry pieces, especially necklaces and earrings. I saw a tassel necklace at Anthropologie and wanted to recreate the look myself. I’ve been making jewelry since middle school and I think I might have a slight obsession with it. The one day dream is to design my own line…for now, it’s just a hobby. This week’s DIY video will show you the steps to make your own tassel necklace and you can purchase the DIY craft kit that has all the supplies you need at the Pushpin TV Etsy store.

6 Ways to Wear a Maxi Skirt

There was a lot of interest on the original post I did for multi-ways to wear a maxi skirt, so I decided to get a little creative and turn it into a fun video for you all. I mentioned that this skirt is great when traveling light but not until I was putting together the outfits for the video did I realize how great it really is! You can create (at least) 6 completely different looks with just a handful of items.

On a side note, I feel like I’ve been MIA from the blog lately, but the plan is to get back on the bandwagon next week. Things have been extremely busy the last month, so I’m taking a break and ending work a little early today to head to LA to celebrate my 30th birthday with some of my favorites. I promise to come back refreshed and with a bunch of new content (and a little older…)! Happy Friday!

I pretty much live in maxi shirts during the summer; they keep you looking stylish even in the heat. My go-to outfit is pairing it with a tank top and statement necklace. These skirts are so versatile, which make them a perfect piece when traveling light. Here are some other options on how to wear a maxi skirt for different occasions:

  1. BBQ/Summer Party: White tank & denim vest
  2. Date Night: Add a statement necklace
  3. Day of Shopping: Simple gray t-shirt & flip flops
  4. Office: Sleeveless dress shirt, belt & wedges
  5. Girls’ Night Out: Leather jacket & heels
  6. Traveling: Chambray shirt

Chambray Shirt

Chambray Shirt

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more style features, so here you go!

I’m currently obsessing over the Chambray shirt. This All-American classic is a staple in my closet and can be mixed into any style. Go classic like Ashley Olsen did by just tucking it into black skinny jeans or more edgy by layering it underneath a vest and pairing it with chunky gold jewelry. I also love wearing this shirt as a jacket, its light weight and perfect for those summer nights.

How to create a no sew bow:

  1. Cut a piece of ribbon 12.5 inches long (this will make a bow about 6 inches long).
  2. Cut another piece of ribbon 3 inches long.
  3. Take your 12.5 inch long piece of fabric, fold the ends together and secure with a drop of hot glue.
  4. Take your 3 inch long piece of fabric, fold in the sides and secure with a drop of hot glue.
  5. Pinch together the middle of the larger piece of ribbon to form the bow.
  6. Glue the smaller piece of fabric around the middle.
