- When I first saw these ballet flats pop up in my feed, three things crossed my mind: I love them, there's no way in hell I'm paying $600 for them, and I can make them. And so I did. I already had the flats in my wardrobe (from ThredUp, I feel I should mention), and after a quick trip to M&J Trim for ribbon they were, essentially, mine. For $11. Sure, they're missing the little straps... but I'm working on it. A note for those who want to do the same - I recommend getting two yards for ultimate wrapping possibilities.
- The weather this month has been brutal, but the heat has been great motivation for watching a million YourTube tutorials for braids. I taught myself (liar... a teenage girl on YouTube taught me) how to do these braids at the beginning of the month and they've pretty much been my savior ever since.
