Hamsa & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

April 9, 2015
Everything old is new again.
The hamsa image is showing up on tshirts and jewelry all over the place.  This ancient symbol has been used for centuries as protection against the evil eye in the Middle East and parts of Africa.  The vibe of this amulet fits right in with the bohemian aestetic so on trend right now.

Outfit details and shopping ideas:

Distressed BF jeans – Old Navy

Nude sandals – Michael Shannon (cute option, Zappos))
Shop for platform sandals at Shopbop.

Jewelry – Tillys

Studded clutch – Urban Expressions (Nordstrom Rack)
Shop for studded clutches at Zappos
Shop for studded clutches at Shopbop

And while the hansa symbol may guard against the evil eye, it’s no protection at all against my wild Siberian husky!

I decided to go with a casual theme for this week’s features:

Here’s Jill of Doused in Pink looking so cool and comfy.

Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a cute dog top and here’s Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust looking adorable in hers.

Loving this striped top with the utility vest on pretty Casey of A Little Bit Of Cheer.

I love casual chic!

Now Dolls … link up, link back, browse around & have FUN!
