Friday's Fab Favorites & An amazing talent!






shirt: J. Crew || Skirt: Made by Haylee Atkinson {Threaded} || Shoes: Chinese Laundry via DSW || Bag: Dooney & Bourke {Thrifted} || Sunglasses: H&M {old} || Bracelet: TJ Max || Watch: Fossil {similar}

I have been sooo excited for this post!! This amazing skirt has an amazing story to it. My cousin Haylee Atkinson from the blog Threaded is such a talented designer and seamstress! She literally makes the most beautiful clothes. I had seen a recent post of a skirt that she made that was with this same fabulous fabric! I immediately messaged her and told her that I wanted one! She was so nice to willingly make me this skirt that I can 100% say is my favorite skirt in my closet! It has a calm neutral feel to it with pops of gold! {definitely my favorite!!!} Check out her blog and her amazing talent! This wont be the last piece of clothing that I will ask her to make for me... {heads up Haylee!! :)}

Second, I am so very excited to be Co-Hosting Friday's Fab Favorites with Lauren from Style Elixir & Janise from Momma in Heels! They are some amazing Ladies :) Check out their blogs & please link up your fabulous blog posts below!

  7. Your hair looks so great! What size curling iron/rod (or other tool) are you using to create these waves?

    1. Ah thank you!I use the 1" curling iron from Hot Tools! Usually when I curl my hair I curl it in layers. I spray each layer with hair spray and once I am done with every layer I let it sit for about ten minutes. Then I brush it out! Hope that helps :) Xo

  14. Hi Kahana ~ Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this week. I love the skirt you are wearing in this post! I actually had stumbled upon Haylee's blog before and was super jealous of her seamstress skills. It's so cool to be able to make awesome original pieces (and even cooler if you can have them without making them - haha). Hope you're enjoying your vacation. ~Jen
