A Tunic

by Gabi

Wearing:: Printed Tunic: Free People, Lace Up: Free People, "G" Necklace: Similar

Uh, can we talk about this dress (well technically it’s a tunic but…) it’s AH-MAZING right? I got it, tried it on and immediately ordered it in the other color! I’m so obsessed with it and will be wearing both all the time, they're so versatile and perfect for any occasion! Cause I mean come on, who doesn’t like to look pretty to walk through the park! Hope you’re all surviving the week thus far, Xx.

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!
