Confident Twosday: Swiss Dot Tank

This was the only outfit pic we got from vacation. Mostly it was spent by the pool in swimsuits! I've been wearing this necklace nonstop and love how the soft green compliments a classic black and white combination and goes really well with one of the totes I scored during Twice's clearance sale. With the beads I already had on hand, I only had to get a tassel for a few dollars! If you haven't made a tassel necklace for yourself, you need to! I followed this tutorial and it was super easy!

So you might notice there are a few changes around here! I have been working with Maru for a while and am really pleased with how everything has turned out! I love what she has done and she was very receptive to my ideas and revisions! To celebrate I have something special below!

  14. The new design looks so fresh and clean, love it! I have been thinking about doing this myself on my blog... It is so hard to take a lot of pics on a vacation where you are in the pool a lot, but you look stylish and I love that tassel necklace.

  19. Great new blog design. That's such a pretty top and the perfect canvas to showcase your lovely necklace. That fact that you only took one photo for the blog doesn't matter as the important thing is enjoying and chilling out on holiday. Hope you had a lovely time.

  38. Isn't it funny how you always have great plans for outfit shots in the amazing places that you holiday in but they never seem to happen. When we are home and busier, it is somehow easier to fit more in than when we get a chance to relax. You certainly look relaxed! Thanks so much for hosting!!
