DDG DIY: Tie Dyed Tote tutorial from Minted Strawberry
Whenever the Summer rolls around there are certain trends that persevere year after year; they might not be exactly the same but they definitely pop back up in one way or another. Nautical and boho styles are always huge in Summer, mostly because they are easy to wear when you don't want to have to think about looking cool when the weather is on the hot side. Hippy dippy trends are always huge around festival season — with crocheting, flower crowns, fringing and tie dye popping up all over the place.
