Some people say to take off one piece of jewelry before you leave every day…I think that is a bunch of CRAP! Of course you should not leave the house looking like a Christmas tree but feel free to really pile on the accessories this Spring. Since I am a huge fan of bright colors it makes sense that I chose 9 must have jewelry pieces that will brighten up your life. Jewelry is one way to not go overboard with current trends, all you need is a large statement necklace and suddenly a white tee looks perfect for a night out. Don’t forget that it is just jewelry, you don’t need to spend a fortune on this stuff! Check local thrift stores, Target, Forever 21, etc. and you will for sure find your perfect statement pieces.
Some of my favorite hues are those that are rich with history and full of vibrant details. Combining colors such as oranges and yellows with neutrals like grey and beige is the perfect way to stand out and look fashion forward. I understand that not everyone wants to wear a bright yellow jacket or red pants but even adding the slightest touch of these hues will make any outfit transform. The Kendra Scott jewelry I have selected is screaming with rich tones that will complete any look, I especially love the green Sarah cuff! Don’t be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone when buying these colors, they look good on almost anyone when worn correctly. So go out and add a little spice to your life!
Le Sigh… is it that time of year again, is it already Valentines day? Yes ladies (and mostly gentlemen) we are dangerously close to the one day a year when men go out of their way to shower their favorite ladies with gifts, flowers, and an obnoxious amount of flattery! So gentlemen instead of taking your girlfriend/wife out to a packed restaurant and paying 100 dollars for flowers and chocolate covered strawberries, get her one of the gifts above! Don’t get me wrong I love to eat and receive flowers just as much as the next girl but lets be real…a necklace would look a lot better on me then the weight I gained eating an entire box of chocolates.
Mint is one of my FAVORITE colors for spring this year. It looks very clean and crispy for day or night, it is the perfect pop of color. I have chosen my Minty Must Haves for a head to toe look:
1) ASOS Mint Loafers 2) ASOS Mint Bow Top 3) Paige Skinny Jeans 4) DVF Cropped Mint Jacket 5) Free People Blouse 6) ASOS Mint Sweater 7) Chloe Bag
8) Equiptment Blouse 9) Kendra Scott Darby Earrings 10) ASOS Platforms 11) ASOS Mint Bow Shorts 12) Essie Nail Polish
Happy Styling! Xoxo
