Summer Breeze {Create the Look Wednesday}

I'm sorry that I'm not posting this until today, I was gone volunteering at a Safety Camp event on Wednesday so I wasn't able to post it then. I have not an excuse for not posting it yesterday, but I didn't! So here is Create the Look Wednesday .... on Friday!

I was inspired by a light Summer Breeze on the beach for this look.

Dress: Anthropologie
Headband: Ruche
Bracelet: Flamingo Toes Blog

How to recreate for less:

Dress: Use this free pattern from Burda to make a dress. For the material, find a vintage sheet or tablecloth from a yard sale or thrift store.

Headband: Purchase elastic lace, create a simple flower using similar material and hot glue or stitch it to the elastic.

Bracelet: Use this tutorial!

Shoes: Go without shoes!
