BOHO BLUSH (+ A GIVEAWAY!)






OUTFIT DETAILS: White plum tunic (25% off with code MERRICK25), c/o || dittos jeans, similar || lulu*s heels || kate spade bag (similar) || michael stars hat via zappos || karen walker sunglasses

Blush is one of those perfect colors that can be worn all year round. I love it in summer paired with white for a super fresh, feminine look, but here I paired it with dark gray and denim for a more cool-weather look and love it maybe just as much! 

Today I've teamed up with White Plum to give away $100 to their shop -- it's full of all sorts of clothing items just like this tunic I'm wearing; unique, feminine, and fun.  The hardest part about shopping at their store is choosing a favorite! 

Enter with the rafflecopter widget below, OR if you can't wait, get 25% off your purchase with code MERRICK25. The giveaway will run through February 4th. Good luck!

DIY FRIDAY: EASY + INTERCHANGEABLE TASSEL NECKLACE



DETAILS: nanette lapore swimsuit || urban outfitter sunglasses || necklaces made by me (tutorial below) 

Next week Philip and I are jet setting off on a tropical vacation. I've been sewing like a mad woman, making a few new pieces to wear while we're there, but in the midst of all my sewing I realized I didn't have any good jewelry for the trip. I have tons of jewelry, but I wanted something more appropriate for the laid-back, beachy feel of the vacation.

Then I saw Julia, of Gal Meets Glam, wearing some pretty tassel necklaces on her recent beach vacations and fell in love with them. The only problems were that I didn't know where she purchased them, and I wanted them in every color. So of course I just DIY'd them. Then I had the idea to make them interchangeable, and with the help of a little lobster clasp I now had one in every color without having to make eight different necklaces. I absolutely love how these turned out and can't wait to wear them next week!

LITTLE BLUE SWING DRESS





PHOTOGRAPHY BY JANA LAURENE

As we head into spring around here (sorry all you people who will still be dealing with snow for the next four months) dresses become my go-to.  Swing dresses are one of my favorite dress styles to wear because they're so comfortable, and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Throw a swing dress on with wedges and a statement necklace for date night (like I did here), or dress it down with a simple pair of leopard flats. I even styled one with a high pony, sandals, and my denim jacket tied around my waist that you can see here. The options are endless, and you look put-together no matter what!

And the best part is that they're super easy to make. Find the Perfect Summer Swing Dress sewing tutorial right here!


Happy Wednesday!
