D.I.Y-BANDANA-JACKET

It case you haven’t heard, bandanas are officially back. It’s an easy and cheap accessory to sport this summer but what I love more are the paisley print details you see in clothes. This denim jacket from Reformation ($138) but if I send this to cart, it will be my 4th pair. So I decided to […]
