Outfit Post: Pumped Up Kicks

I had been meaning to do this DIY for the past couple weeks and finally got around to doing it today. I am so unbelievably happy with how they turned out. All I did was add some lace to a couple pairs of shorts. I love how the lace just adds a cutesy touch and a little length to my otherwise normal cut off shorts. So cute! And I am super proud because I used my sewing machine to sew both pairs...YAY! I paired my shorts with a Brandy Melville tank, converse, Crochet Savy headband and gorgeous Holly Lauren jewelry. I really can't get enough of both of those gorgeous girls goodies. You NEED to check them out if you haven't already.

I promised I was going to tell you guys all about my Mexico trip, so here it is! Rocky Point is only a 4 hour drive from Mesa AZ so it definitely is a quick road trip. We pretty much just hung out around the resort the whole week. Honestly, it is so relaxing by the pool and the beach it feels like you are on a tropical island! The water is a gorgeous bright aqua blue color and you can see right to the bottom. I found a ton of amazing shells, that I just might be using in some pieces on my stay tuned for that:) Here are some pictures I took over the week, incase you missed them on Instagram.
