DIY | PEARL SLIDE SANDALS

Pearl embellishments seem to be everywhere this year, playing off of geometric shapes and minimalistic style. They influtrated blogger closets and must-have lists with the Miu Miu and the Zara pearl slides, and show no signs of stopping as pearl embellished jeans and denim jackets are also quite popular this season. Wanting to join in on this trend, I decided to recreate the Zara slides as the original ones from Zara did not fit me and were quite pricey for something that screamed DIY. As always if there’s a way to make it for cheap and personalize it to be unique to me, I’m all over it. Read on to see how you can recreate these pearl slides to rock for the rest of summer!

DIY | CUTOFF JEANS UNEVEN HEMS

The cutoff style doesn’t have to be exclusive to just shorts as this uneven hemline has been quite popular on a lot of streetstyle bloggers. Granted as cool as they were, I wasn’t inclined to pay premium retail prices so I got myself a cheap pair of jeans and proceeded to cut them up as I pleased. I’m pretty happy with the result, though I do wish that the jeans were more tapered at the ankle but that’s just due to my jeans not being ultra skinny like I usually get them. But better yet for those of you looking to recreate this, thrift a pair of denim jeans from your local thrift store to save even more and to have IDEAL worn in denim cut offs.

I styled my cutoff uneven hem jeans with a baggy sweater, scarf (because it’s still cold where I live), fishnet socks and black pumps. This is a more going out look but you can definitely dress these jeans down with sneakers or denim shorts for the summer!
