Earlier in the Spring you might have seen my collaboration with Amazon Fashion to showcase how I transition my look from day to night. Since I work during the day, I often find myself looking for clothes that are appropriate for client meetings AND blogger events. I’ve become pretty obsessed with Amazon for the wide variety of styles they offer whether it be my work outfit, or fun accessories.
While work does take up the majority of my week, my off-duty looks are just as important! When I’m not running from meetings to events, I want my style to be an effortless reflection of me – stylish, but not fussy.
With Summer coming to a close and my European vacation just around the corner – I was on the hunt for the perfect look that is undeniably me. You know that feeling when you’re going on vacation and you want something new to make the trip feel special. Well, I looked no further than Amazon Fashion again!
What I found was a bright one-shouldered maxi dress that is as chic as it is easy to throw on. The bright, breezy fabric will keep me cool down South- but also be a beautiful look to stroll through the streets of Barcelona later this month! To dress-up my look, I accessorized with the cutest straw clutch with a navy grosgrain ribbon detail. A little bit preppy, but all the way me! I knew that I wanted a small straw bag this Summer, but I had no idea I would find something so perfect. I realized that because of Amazon’s selection, it really is the best playground to find exactly what you want to complete a look you have in mind. You can truly find any fashion item you could ever hope to discover…and more!
Whether in Atlanta or Barcelona, you’ll see more wearing this look for weeks to come!
Trends come and go. Some are for me, while others I just let pass. For instance, tiny sunglasses – I’ve worn a pair here or there, but I haven’t truly invested in this trend. On the other hand, a trend I’m totally in love with is layered necklaces! For one, you can get on-board with items you already have in your possession! No need to go out and spend to make this style a reality.
So what are some items to consider when going for the layered necklace look? Materials and length! Let’s start with materials. While mixing metals can be fun, too many can look cluttered and unintentional. I suggest sticking with one, such as gold, which is classic and modern. To add variety, you can mix up different textures – perhaps a chain, perhaps one is smooth, maybe one is made of paillettes. There are so many options to play with.
Next up is length! If all of your necklaces fall at the same place, then it looks like a jumbled mess. Instead, try varying lengths that show off the uniqueness of each necklace. For me, I usually like to wear a choker, then something that falls right at the base of my neck, then a chain that lies flat on my chest. You can see the beauty of each piece and the layering effect really comes to life!
And there you have it… Do you dolls like to layer necklaces? Share your favorite with me and see the necklaces I love at the links below!
With the Summer heat, don’t you feel like you’re constantly looking for an outfit that’s easy to throw on, comfy and breathable, but still cute? Well I’ve found my go-to outfit!
I’ve recently become obsessed with an easy and stylish brand called ABLE. They’re a fashion brand out of Nashville with a purpose that can inspire all. ABLE’s mission is to end generational poverty by investing in women and the communities in which they live. They manufacture directly in the communities they want to impact – giving jobs to those who have overcome extraordinary circumstances and allowing these women to bring an income to their families.
In addition to this empowering work, ABLE has the most effortless looking outfits that keep me looking cool and collected. This Summer, I’ve been rocking their jumpsuit with every chance I get. In the evenings I throw on a denim jacket to curb the breeze, and I finish my look with leopard sandals for a bit of fun. Don’t forget the accessories! Their leather and suede satchel is the perfect size for throwing in Summer essentials. The variety of colors had me wanting every shade, but in the end I opted for black given my Ex-New Yorker wardrobe. And last but not least is one of my new favorite pieces of jewelry…the prettiest turquoise ring that miraculously goes with everything. So if you see me this Summer, I’ll likely be rocking this look with a cast of different jackets in the evening. I’ll transition the look to Fall with some suede boots and my leather jacket. And there you have it…any easy look, not only for summer – but for seasons to come!
