I know I know, every Monday all everyone has to say is how very short the weekend was. But this one seemed extra super duper short! I think it also passed 100 degrees in temperature, so this is what I wore for a quick trip to the pool.
Dress - c/o August Wrinkle
Sunnies - c/o Sunglass Warehouse
Woven Bracelet - Mitla Moda (similar)
Sandals - hand-me-downs
Necklace - handmade by me!
This dress definitely could be dressed up and seem fancy, but the light floaty layers and hot pink color make it a perfect pool cover up too. I paired it with a pair of folding sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse (they literally fold up until their pocket -sized!), a matching woven fair trade bracelet from Mitla Moda, and a neon fringe necklace I made.
In high school and through college, I actually had my own small jewelry line called Tropichannah (get it... Tropicana... tropic hannah...okay then). I had a little shop on Etsy and also made custom pieces and sets for special occasions, like bridesmaids jewelry for two of my cousins weddings. I then moved to Colorado, started my career in the environmental field, and my hobby fell a bit to the wayside. But now that I run my vintage shop full time, I am having a really good time getting back into some of my favorite creative passions, and am actually planning on launching a handmade shop on Etsy in the next few months too! This actually has been a plan in the works for awhile now, but since I am wearing a fringe necklace that would be in the shop, I thought it seemed like a good time to mention it here! The handmade shop will also have a charitable component as well, with a portion of proceeds being donated to a cause I feel very passionately about - can anyone guess?! Anyway, let me know what you think, and if you have ideas for other colors your would like to see, etc., I would love to hear!
