My fashion style is classic and simple, but when summer rolls around, I like
to add a little bling! While I no longer spend hours perfecting a tan ~ now I
apply self tanners, I love bright colors and metallics against bronzed skin.
Take this straw and gold metallic clutch from Lilly Pulitzer for example.
I will pair it with my gold wedges, and white jeans and a white lace top
and some pearls and I am ready for an evening out with my hubby.
I wear pearls all year. I never layer on too many pieces of jewelry. If I
wear this three strand pearl bracelet, then I skip and necklace and keep the
earrings small and simple.
Here are three of my favorites. When I feel the need to be a bit more
glamorous, I wear the big hoops.
This statement necklace works well with a strapless summer print or
to dress up a plain t-shirt with with jeans and cute sandals.
Adding pops of bright colors takes a simple solid summer sheath
to new levels. I have a solid lime green sleeveless dress that I have worn
for years and I dress it up by adding this brightly patterned scarf and hot
pink woven handbag.
The bowtie cuff is from Lilly Pulitzer and the charm bracelet is Kate Spade.
I am a careful shopper too. The woven bag and scarf were found at a
consignment shop and the cuff was an eBay win. The only new item here
is the Kate Spade charm bracelet. I could not resist the terrier with the pink
Just because you are grocery shopping does not mean you cannot try to
look cute. I throw on some madras shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops. I
like to add this cute Angela Moore hand painted bracelet. It stretches and
is easy to wear. The Tiffany bracelet and watch were gifts from David.
Now we're talking! I love to show off my inner cowgirl by wearing a
pair of white jean shorts, my cowgirl boots and some pretend turquoise.
I really feel free and easy wearing this look.
I love, love, love this little horse bracelet! The woman who makes these also
makes dog bracelets too. You can find her fun jewelry here.
Summer is a fun and free season where we can all add a little bling to
our look. Have a great weekend everyone!!
