DIY // appliquéd trim statement jacket

add a statement to your jacket with this appliquéd trim DIY! for the full instructions head to

Let me start out by saying I love DIY’s (have you seen my personal blog, Material Delight?) — but one annoying thing about starting so many projects is the plethora of leftover materials. Ribbons… fabric cuttings… beads… It’s a lot to store! That’s why I’m always so excited when a new idea uses the same materials as a previous project.

A few weeks ago we made appliquéd ribbon statement sunhats and it was one of my favorite DIY posts yet! I had plenty of black trim left over, so we decided why not take the same idea of our looping cursive statement hats and apply it to my favorite denim jacket?

5 cool raffia beach totes

searching for my summer go-to bag! check out my 5 favorite raffia beach totes over on

You guys, the weather in Seattle the past couple of weeks has me feeling like I live in California! It’s been hot and sunny almost every day and, even though we’ve each been stocking up on summer basics, my outfits are still far from beach-ready. I’m still missing the most important part: a beach tote!

Raffia tote bags have a special place in my heart. I can hear waves crashing on the shore just from looking at all the bright colors and fun patterns of these vintage-inspired bags. Don’t even get me started how much I loved the ones with pom-poms, like Capri Woven Tote with Pom Charms (pictured above) from Nordstrom.
