Summer is officially here! It’s time to trade in your boring black bags for something with a bit more color and spunk. When looking for the hottest handbag trends of the season we often look at street style pictures for inspiration. We adore each of these looks and couldn’t wait to show them off with you.
When looking for upcoming trends we are often inspired by our surroundings.Being located in New York City, we find there is always an abundance of style around us. One trend that has been making its way to the east coast post-Coachella is definitely the global influenced/boho trend. The vibrant colors, mixed mediums and over-the-top detail associated with many of these products completely satisfies our creative juices. We’ve rounded up some of our top bohemian-influenced pieces that you can recreate using M&J trims just in time for Bonnaroo or everyday use.

There are certain days when it seems as though the world is moving at the speed of light. Therefore, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back, relax and enjoy some quite alone time. For millions and myself, quality time lying in bed or on a comfortable couch with a good book sounds pretty nice, especially on a cold rainy day.
This week, I’ve decided to put together a nice bookmark. I tend to lose my place so this will come in handy. I used a thick colored stock paper. Using scissors, I cut off 2″ x 7″. Then with a hole-punch, I punched the top middle of the paper. With some cute shell buttons, I was able to embellish my bookmark. I also found a cute artwork and glued that onto the paper using gem-tac glue. Keep it mind that the bookmark should be light. That’s the main reason why I chose shell buttons for decoration. I then tied a black tassel through the hole at the top of the bookmark. To finish it off, I glued two ¼” grosgrain ribbons to the back. My ribbons measured 1 yd long, but yours can be as long or as short as you like as long as it is longer than your book. Remember not to use too much glue when you make yours. It’ll end up wrinkling the bookmark and make it too heavy. When using the bookmark, you can tie a bow at the end of the ribbon. Then tada! You’re all ready for your relaxing day!
