DIY My favorite Dream Catcher

by Gabi

About a year ago I started my first blog, "Trimmed With Lace" I occaasionally posted about outfits and DIY but never shared! Except for one post, the DIY project I did for a dream catcher! I still get notifications on my pinterest about repins of the picture and people always ask where I got my dream catcher (I have it hanging on my rearview mirror!) So, I thought I would bring this back and share with all you fringers!!


So first you'll need all the supplies (all pictured below, you can also grab anything you think might look cute and reflect your personal style!)

Now for the making!!

1. Start with tying the doily with the thread to your branch wreath

2. After that, tie your string/lace/trim/fabric to the bottom of your dream catcher, I found these feathers and just tied them with the string!

3. Last make a loop at the top of your dream catcher to hang where you ever you would like! Like I said I have mine in my car, but it's great for hanging on the wall or above your bed! Hope you guys love this, so easy and a great touch for a true boho girl!

More Color, Please!

by Gabi

Wearing: Somedays Loving Dress, Jeffery Campbel Heels, Fringe Necklace, Sunglasses

Happy Friday! Hope you all are enjoying this summer as much as I am. So many projects in the making, I can't wait to share with you all (hopefully it will make up for my lack of posting!)! But little confession about this summer, I have sporting a lot of white ... like A LOT of white! So the other day I was on a hunt for some color and when I saw this little number, I DIED!! It was like the answer to my prayers- I was in desperate need for some more color in my life! I love this shift dress to throw on with a little heel for a fun summer night grabbing drinks and cathcing up with  some girlfriends! Xo

When in Nashville

by Gabi

Wearing: Guaze Button-Down, Destroyed Ankle Jeans, Lace up Heels, Hat (as seen here and here

Howdy y’all, so this weekend I was in Nashville celebrating Shae’s (founder of VF) bachelorette weekend! Had so much fun between the cute shopping and all the live music. The town is full of energy and seriously can’t wait to take another trip back. I definitely recommend if you are planning on visiting to take a day to drive around to a few different areas to do a little bit of shopping- my favorite store Two Old Hippies. They had the most amazing jewelry I had ever seen! Also, 12th South St. is another unbelievable street full of boutiques, thrift shops and some good eats! Now back to reality, wishing I was still in the great old town of Country Music!
