Summer Stylin’ | The Maxi

Maxi skirts/dresses are the easiest clothing items to just throw on and walk out the door. For one, they are flowy and comfy unlike pants or leggings, and provide more coverage if you aren’t exactly in to wearing mini skirts or shorter skirts every day. I love the look of maxis with just about anything–in fact you can dress them up or down depending on what you pair with them with things you already have in your closet.

Instead of wearing just a plain shirt and a maxi skirt, or just a plain maxi dress–style your maxis to make you stand out. It’s super simple and fun to do that you can make these pieces last you for more than just a couple of outfits here and there and with these ideas it’ll take your outfit to that extra notch to make it seem like you put more effort in to your style.

Take a look at our styling video and let us know what you think!

If you have any suggestions on what we should style next, let us know! We’d love to hear your feedback.

DIY: Nailpolish Holder!

If you love nail polish as much as we do, I think we all encounter the issue of where we store these bad boys right? Well, we’ve got an affordable and easy to make solution for you guys (which isn’t new, we know, but it’s a lot of fun to make and put to use!).

Take a look at our recent video:

Materials Needed:
3 foam boards
Exacto knife
Ruler or Measuring tape
Glue gun & glue sticks
Duct tape (optional)

Instructions:
Take the 1st foam board (backboard): Draw a horizontal line every 5 inches
On the 2nd foam board: Cut 7 TWO inch strips horizontal *used as shelves* & then cut 7 ONE inch strips horizontal *used as shelve stoppers*
On the 3rd foam board: Cut 2 TWO 1/2 inch strips *the side of your rack*

-Take the 2 inch strips and glue them to the lines we drew on the first foam board. And glue them to the top and bottom of the foam board to make the shelving complete.
-Take your 2 1/2 inch strips and glue them to the side of your rack.
-Take your 1 inch strips (decorated or not) and glue to your shelves to prevent your nailpolishes from slipping off.

And success, you are done! And ready to put your nail polishes on and organize as you wish.

Share with us if you’ve done this before or share with us how you store your nail polishes, we’d love to see!

XOXO Karla and Alyssa
