Rope Braid Tutorial

Rope Braid Tutorial on KOKAY

Okay so, a few of you have said that you would like to see a video for some of my hair tutorials and I am finally taking a stab at it! It is my first try so bear with me, but if you like it please please please let me know in the comments and I will continue to do them for you guys!

This rope braid was inspired by Donna Karan’s Spring 2015 runway show and I am absolutely in love with the simple sleek look of it. It is perfect for those days when you want your hair back.. or if it’s a little dirty :) It is super easy so I hope you all enjoy and give it a try!

If you don’t know about Camilla pieces then you are missing out. Each one is so beautiful.. they are literally like pieces of artwork. I talked about my love of her kimonos here but this kaftan’s colors are so vibrant and saturated that it is perfect for this time of the year. Not to mention the jewel detailing and silk fabrics make the piece look extravagant but you feel like you are wearing your favorite pjs! Win win! 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! We are going to be doing more settling in to our new apartment and exploring the town so I am so excited!!

DIY Twine wrapped wine bottles

Twine wrapped wine bottles DIY Twine wrapped wine bottles DIY Twine wrapped wine bottles DIY

Since we have moved into our new apartment I am all about DIY home decor projects to liven the place up a bit. These twine wine bottles (love that that rhymes) are probably one of the easiest DIY projects. You can use them like as a centerpiece or as flower vases, but anyway you choose they will look totally adorable. As a warning, it does take some time to wrap the bottle fully, but if you do it while you are watching that new episode of Real Housewives it will be done before you know it!

All you have to do is start from the top and use a paintbrush to brush glue on about an inch of the wine bottle surface. You do not need a lot but just enough for the twine to really hold. Start wrapping the twine around the bottle, making sure it is tight and there is very little space between each layer. Continue with the glue and wrap process until the end!

If you want stripes, I just mixed up some food coloring to the desired hue and soaked the twine. Wrap the twine however large you want the stripe and then alternate colors. A little harder but still so simple!

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed!

ROXY DRESSES YOU CAN ROCK INTO FALL here here here| VINTAGE CLUTCH | DENIM JACKET

It may be almost fall but that doesn’t mean I am going to stop wearing my summer sundresses quite yet! It has still been in the mid-80s around here and I just can’t bring myself to put my pretty dresses away already. This Roxy dress I got quite a while ago and it is the perfect option when you want a fun flirty dress that is still casual. The opening in the back shows just enough skin.

Pairing a little dress with a denim or light jacket is the perfect way to transition into those times when it is hot during the day but chilly at night.

Have a great weekend!

Charlie and I moved this past weekend! I am so happy I absolutely love our new place. But who knew that moving was so darn hard.. It took forever but now is the fun part of decorating and putting everything in its place!

Because of the whirlwind of moving I haven’t been able to post a lot but I am coming at you with one of my favorite looks ever. I am truly a vintage addict. I have been ever since I can remember and it is such a thrill for me to find little treasures at thrift stores. My skirt is actually culottes which I am obsessed with. How cute! I wanted to match the retro vibes of the skirt with my hair and was totally in love with the results.

Do you guys love the retro look as much as me?

Thanks for reading!
