DIY: Dressing Up A Clutch

DIY Clutch

I recently picked up the camel version of this clutch while I was on vacation in California. As I was standing in the line to check out I almost decided to put it back, because although I thought it was cute it wasn’t anything to write home about. But before I put it back this DIY idea struck me and so I decided to keep it- and now I have this cute and cheeky summer clutch. Another great idea I got from my girlfriend was buying these to have them monogrammed- just in case pom poms aren’t your thing. I’ve personally never met a pom pom I didn’t like but if your more the monogram type go for it! Happy Friday!

Road Trip Photo Diary

PD1

My trip started in Minneapolis, Shane and I were packing up and moving back home to Idaho. My parents came to visit and help Shane and I move all of our things. Luckily we squeezed in a lot of fun stuff aside from all the moving responsibilities. We decided to take a more scenic route home from Minneapolis to Boise, and stopped to see Mount Rushmore. I had never been to Mount Rushmore, and I was really happy to have been able to do that with my parents. We also drove through Yellowstone on the way home, and even though I have been there before it was still just as stunning the second time through. After being home for just shy of a week, my sister and I packed up her car and drove to California. She recently started a new job in San Jose and we went down a week early to spend a few days in California before her new job started. We visited San Francisco, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Los Gatos, and spent quite a bit of time in Campbell, which is her new home. I really couldn’t have asked for a better start to my summer than wine tasting with my sister, hanging out with my best girlfriends, sandy beaches and being able to spend time with my family again.

Road Trip

It’s been an entire month since I’ve shown ┬ámy face on this place- I apologize. I have been moving, unpacking, road tripping, and unpacking some more, but I am officially settled into my new apartment and therefore I am back to blogging. I recently took a road trip that helped inspire this post. These are some of my top picks for summer trips! I hope everyone has been enjoying the start to their summer! I will share photos from my trip later this week! xoxo
