Summer DIY Inspo May 31 2016, 0 Comments


"Life is better in DIY..." - every Pinterest user ever

Hoping everyone had a healthy and wonderful Memorial Day weekend with friends and family! We spent the weekend greeting and welcoming guests to their weekend vacation destination and our fair home - Wisconsin Dells, WI. There was so much excitement in the air and with summer quickly approaching, it seems everyone is ready for a quick warm-weather style refresher. We've combed through our Instagram feed, a list of style blogs a mile long, and any and all Facebook posts - post by post, to bring you truly inspiring summer style. Click away, dear adventurers and readers and glean some truly wonderful bits of summer style inspiration. 

 From blogger Jenni Radosevich (@ispydiy), and in the spirit of summer concert prep and style plotting, we link you to a most fabulous DIY featured on  -  My DIY | Festival Fringed Tank. Jenni takes readers through the step by step process of turning an old tank top into fashionable fringed fineness. We are huge fans of a good repurpose like this one. 

And because we adore Minnetonka not only as a brand, but a lifestyle as well, we're always looking for unique ways to customize our fave footwear. Meet @merchemariposa.crafty. We first spotted these unique designs on Instagram. With a background as a henna designer Merche is etching her henna inspired designs by hand onto suede mocs, boots and slippers to create customized footwear for customers around the world - total shoe swoon!!!!

 This is a new area for us, but hair can be the best accessory sometimes. The braiding styles featured on are wickedly good! We love the image-based tutorials on how to manage these amazing braids on your own - straightforward and visually pleasing. And let's face it, if attending a multiple day event is part of the summer plan, you're going to need an arsenal of braids to get you through the long, hot days in style.
