Summertime // July 4th Origami Bandana DIY



I enjoy wearing scarves-as-bras over T-shirts from time-to-time (as seen previously in the winter too). It's something that adds a pop of color and some cheeky flair to any top/dress you like, and now that it's warmer out, you can totally give your boobs the extra love they deserve and wrap them up in crop tops and bathing suits instead of a turtleneck and an oatmeal sweater. Let 'em breathe, let 'em out- that's what I say.

Now, there's something about bandanas and the summer-
 it's because bandanas are handkerchiefs after all- meant to wipe the sweat from your brow as you work a field or play baseball or fix a roof. Perhaps that's why because Opening Ceremony did a bandana-clad collection a bunch of seasons back, and now we seem to have this reoccurring trend of ladies wearing 'em around their necks again. In any case, here's a fancier take on a bandana bra top with fancy fold-overs to add some flair to your next t-shirt:


Start with two bandanas and tie them together with a knot at the top corners. I get all of my 'danas from Dusty Rose Vintage because we have a TON of them.


Tuck one side under your arm to keep it in place as you grab the inner-bottom corner, and fold the remaining top corner over it.


Like so.


Now gather the remaining ends and wrap around your chest to your back. Tuck your folded side under your arm as you repeat on the other side, and finally double knot the ends together at your back.


Yes, Queen. 

Happy 4th of July, everyone.

Something taken previously, you can tell from my hair parted to the side. High (waists) & long layers, I remember going out wanting to look like I was wearing some large fraction of a closet.







Lush has cured many of my ignorances when it comes to the cosmetic industry, so I've gone ham.
There are plastics, like microbeads, in many exfoliants.
 These plastics are unnecessary and their production is environmentally costly.
You don't need these plastics to buff yo sweat off. 
Solution: use exfoliants that only contain natural scrubby-stuff and revel in your intelligence.

 Also I'm going to urge ALL OF YOU who can to treat yourself by obtaining a pot of Life's A Beach because holy shit. It's basically a blend of sand, salt and other botanicals, which when mixed with water creates the most luscious, divine, gardenia-y, vanilla-y body scrub I've ever used in my life. It keeps my skin soft and the scent just STAYS. Like, I take showers a few hours before bed, and it makes my bedding smell delicious when I sleep. I mentioned this on Twitter and it's 1000000% true.

 I don't think I've ever given a cosmetic this high of a seal-of-approval, come to think of it.
