Peplum and DIY pom straw tote

I saw these sandals at Mango while in Croatia. Loved the color and style. I didn’t get them at that time. But after browsing their website recently I spotted them on sale and it was a done deal. 

Thanks to the chunky mid heel they’re so comfortable. And they go with everything! 

  (I was worried about sizing as European sizes are a lot of times converted all wrong. I’m size 8.5 and these are 39 which is usually size 8. But they fit great).

 Stop and smell the roses 🙂

I’ve been wanting a pom straw tote but they’re usually $100 and up. Crazy for a straw tote if you ask me (unless I was going to use it a lot and get my $$ worth out of it, then yes, I’d splurge). 

But I decided to order and cheapo straw tote (removed the flower). Ordered some individual pom-poms from Amazon but then saw this pink, one piece pom “string” at Michael’s and decided to get it (with the Michael’s coupon, I found pom-poms to be cheaper at Michaels than Amazon).

 I’m planning on adding some more pom-poms to the tote..once I decide what I’d like it to look like. 

 It’s a fun project and you can make it exactly the way you want it, for a lot less.

    You look so cute in this outfit! There are pompom makers by Clover, I ordered mine on Amazon, but I think Michaels and JoAnn sells them too (by yarn/knitting supplies). You can make your own Pom pom's! Where have these been all my life?! Lol!

    Looove this! Your outfit is perfect with that bag. I never thought of adding pom poms to a straw bag. But now I think I definitely should :)xo
