Burgundy Cross Front Tee & How I Plan for Weekend Guests

My best friend Ashley came to visit this weekend! We had SO much fun going to brunch, playing with Snapchat filters, getting our nails done, and watching this scary show on HBO called The Night Of.

Weekly Refreshment: How to Clean Your Jack Rogers Sandals

How to Clean YourJack Rogers Sandals via

I’m in love with my Jack Rogers sandals. I got my first pair in college and they broke from fatigue. This is my second pair, and I’ve had them re-soled once.  However, as you can see, they have a nice patina to them from years of love and wear.

Today’s DIY project will teach you how to clean your Jacks with only 3 tools!

I was originally going to wear this blue lace dress to my friend’s wedding in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I even laid it out and teased it on Instagram. Luckily, I threw in a back-up dress (seen in this post) as I was running out of the apartment just in case.
