Trends I’m Loving- Summer Statement Necklaces

Hey Cats!

As we’ve previously discussed, I can’t get enough jewelry. While I only have a couple, I am enamored by statement necklaces. The bold shapes and sparkly jewels are eye-catching and can really add a lot to a simple outfit. Lately, I’ve noticed more and more statement necklaces with bright colors and fun textures that are perfect for summer. Here are a few of my favorites!

baublebarnecklaceI’m loving this Crystal Cord Collar Necklace from BaubleBar. It’s such a whimsical mix of casual and glamorous with the cord and the crystals, and is perfect for the summer. The bright colors make a great statement and the cord adds a unique, non-traditional twist. This would be great paired with a black romper and wedges for a night out, or bright shorts and a chambray for daytime.

Next is this Blooms By the Stream Necklace from Benevolent Jewels. I love the bright neons mixed with the clear crystals. Also, the shape of this necklace is unique in comparison to other statement necklaces. While the colors are bright and the detailing is intricate, this is still a simple shape and could be worn with a patterned top or dress and not look too busy! Benevolent Jewels has quite the array of statement necklaces (and many other fabulous pieces), so if you find something you like, enter the discount code “KCODE20” at checkout for 20% off your purchase!

This Silk Tassel Statement Necklace from Kate Spade Saturday is definitely different- and that’s why I love it! The texture of the tassels and leather give it a more bohemian vibe, which we all know I love during the summer. This would pair well with a simple white tee, or under the collar of a button-down.

Trends I’m Loving- Bright Summer Nails

Hey Cats!

It’s back to work and real life for me today! But it’s a short week, and my bestie is coming to visit this weekend- yay!

I love nail polish, and it’s one area in my life where I tend to bend the rules. If I want to wear neon yellow the week before Christmas, I will. If I want to wear black in June, I’ll do that as well. However, I get really excited in the summer when all the bright colors make their debut. There are always a few new colors that I’m dying to get my hands on…or get on my hands. Either way, bright summer colors are a nail trend I typically go along with. Here’s what I’m loving this year:

Essie Vices Versa

 

This bright green, Vices Versa, from Essie’s neon  collection is definitely a top choice for summer nails. The neon hue adds a pop of color with an edgy twist! This would be perfect for the beach, or with an all-white or all-black ensemble.

butterlondon

 

I always have to have a bright red or hot coral for the summer, and Butter London’s Ladybird definitely fits the bill. This is a great color that can go from work to play, and would look great with both your pool hat and your powersuit!

opi orange Orange is taking center stage this summer, which I would normally hate, but it’s growing on me! Orange polish, like Juice Bar Hopping from OPI is an excellent color for your sandy little toes this summer.

Spring Greens

Hey Cats!

I thought we were done with the cold hard winter of 2014, but it decided to make an encore appearance Tuesday, following some bad weather Monday night. It was probably 60 degrees, which is unacceptable because it’s summer break and I want to go to the pool, not wear long sleeves. But I digress. I went to lunch with my sister on Tuesday, and decided to wear the warmest things I brought home- jeans and a chambray.

I started with my new floral chambray from Old Navy. I bought this last week, and it was on sale for only $11.49! I LOVE my solid chambray, but I’m afraid I’m going to wear it out soon- I wear it at least once a week! I love the tiny floral print on this one, it’s perfect for spring! I paired it with my bright green cropped jeans from JCPenney. (It looks like they’re out of this color, but they have a neon green- so cute!). I love this bright hue, it’s perfect for spring and summer, and it brings life to an otherwise simple outfit. I chose my brown Lucky Brand loafers, because they’re comfortable, versatile, and my newest favorite shoes. I bought them from Marshall’s and unfortunately cannot find them online- but the Lucky website has similar styles! For finishing touches, I added my everyday watch, roll bracelet, and rings, and my Kendra Scott Morgan Studs. I love this look because it’s casual yet interesting, and was excellent for a cooler day! But hopefully we won’t have too many more of those!
