Our outfits for summer are almost ready to go, but there’s one thing we’re still squaring away: our hairstyles. The summer is known to be the worst season for hair because it’s humid, sticky, and hot. Recipe for hair disasters much? So we’re calling in some accessories to make our hair look like a ten, even though it feels like a hard 4 at best.

One of the best perks of summer, besides being able to finally whip out our sundresses, is the ability to enjoy the outdoors in a totally different way. We’re talking about heading down to the beach, pool or other comparable large body of water. Now besides sunscreen, a straw hat, and a cute Triangl bikini, there’s only one thing you need to make your beach day a success. A cute cover-up of course!
The Tony Awards bring out the theatrics and we’re not only talking about the performances they honor. We’re also talking about the style stars that shone on the red carpet!

This week we have a DIY that is the perfect piece to complete your spring and summer wardrobe. Inspired by Marni’s incredible rope necklaces, we decided to put all of our cord to good use! This simpler design features one length of cord at a time, but you can always add additional segments to the necklace. We like wearing a clustered bunch to really make a statement, but you can also rock one at a time. These necklaces are a little bit nautical too, making them perfect for your summer vacation at sea!
End Caps (small and large)
Chenille Cord Necklace1. Measure your chenille cord around your neck, and cut depending on how long you want your necklace. Cut cord.
2. Take your jewelry wire and hold the tip with the loop with a set of pliers. Create a knot by twisting the wire into a ball. This will allow the wire not to fall through the opening of the end cap.
3. Place the loop tip into the end cap so it come out on the other side.
4. Add glue and place cord into the end cap. Let dry and repeat on other side.
5. Add a jump ring to each end and a lobster clasp to on end.
