T-Shirt Dress

    A pink t-shirt dress, come cat eye sunglasses, and lace up sandals.

    Pink is not a color that overwhelms my closet but this super soft t-shirt dress was calling my name. I mean, how can one not like t-shirt dresses? They are so easy to throw on and look put together, even when you’re not. Also calling my name; lace up sandals on sale at Target, these cat eye sunglasses from Asos, and this boho necklace that I kept from my latest Rocksbox. (Cue my Rocksbox code for a free month that you can use: sweettealblogxoxo.)

    I’m also selling this bag on my eBay, you can buy it here. I’ve used it like twice and decided I don’t need a bajillion Dooneys. Although, somehow I keep finding them on the cheap at garage sales and thrift stores and just can’t turn them away. My obsession with Dooney is real. So if you’re on the hunt for a large floral Dooney & Bourke bag, I’m your girl. It’s barely used and in great condition. I just hope someone gets more use out of it than I did. Read more…


    What To Do In & Around Ocala, FL

    what to do in and around Ocala, Florida

    Location: Ocala, Florida

    This past weekend we took a family trip to Ocala, Florida. My Mom’s friend owns a cabin in Chiefland, FL (about an hour’s drive from Ocala) and that’s where we stayed. I’ve been to the area about 3 or 4 times now and if you love being outdoors and going on adventures, this area is for you. However, if you like nice restaurants and shopping, I’d recommend going someplace else. There is not a lot in Ocala but if you include the surrounding cities, there are some adventures you don’t want to miss. I would recommend renting a car if you are flying in because the good spots are around an hour or two’s proximity. So here are a few things I have done and some of my recommendations. Read more…


    White Lace

    Top (Tj Maxx – similar) | Bottoms | Shoes (similar) | Bag (thrifted) | Sunnies | Earrings (Rocksbox – use my code “sweettealblogxoxo” for a free month!)

    White lace. A long time favorite of mine. I love how bohemian, girly, and unique it can be. It’s no wonder I own so much of it. Along with white lace, I am loving cat eye sunglasses right now, and pretty much anything that laces up. These shoes use to be different until my Gunner got hold of them and chewed ’em up. I did find a way to save them though, more on that later. For now, I have been enjoying making old things new again, or just creating things from scratch. Life update: learned how to use my sewing machine. Made my Mom a purse. The possibilities are endless now. If you have a sewing machine, I suggest learning how to use it if you don’t already! So many more DIYs involving a sewing machine will be making their way to my blog now. I am so excited! Oh and I went icy blonde. Loving it.

    Bigger Bun Video Hair Tutorial

    If you struggle with thin hair that looks like you put a golf ball on top of your head and called it a “bun”, then this tutorial is for you. My hair is so thin that I can put a ponytail in it using one of those tiny clear elastics that are about a centimeter in diameter. No matter how messy I make my bun, it always looks too small to me. Here is a trick I learned to make your bun bigger, using hair extensions in a certain way.

    DIY Painted Doormat

    diy doormat

    This quick DIY is all about how to spruce up a plain ole’ doormat. I bought this one from Target with the hopes of painting it. I had high hopes for my design but also had no idea how hard it is to hand paint on these types of mats. So my original plan changed and I went with a saying instead. Spray painting is by far the easiest way to paint these mats, I’ve found. Using a blue spray paint I already had on hand and letter cut outs I made, I now have a doormat that I can love. Read more…


    Quick Guide To Naples, Florida

    A quick travel guide to Naples, Florida

    Location: Naples, Florida

    The city of Naples, Florida is a beautiful place. There are gorgeous beaches, delicious restaurants, and fun things to do. I’m starting to dip my toes into the blogging world of travel and hope to include more of these “quick guides” and possibly some travel video diaries in the future. Don’t get me wrong though, I love DIY and style and it will always be my main content, but I thought it would be fun to include the occasional travel post since I love reading them myself! These posts will probably be more on the rare side but think of them as an added bonus! So with that, my first quick travel guide is to a city I’m a local in. These are my quickly rounded recommendations of where to eat (and what to eat), what to do, where to stay, and where to shop. Do it all in sunny Naples, Florida and a few close surrounding cities.
