Everyday Jewelry for the Gaudy Girl

Hey Cats!

It’s no secret that I love jewelry. From necklaces, to earrings, to bracelets, baubles are the best, and the bigger the better in my book. However, since I’m usually wearing Norts and a tee now every day now that I’m at school, statement necklaces and dangly earrings look a little out of place. But I still like my outfit to have a bit of sparkle, so I’ve got a few staple pieces to wear everyday that draw attention, but not too much!

First, I start with a stacked wrist.

I start with one or two Lily and Laura bracelets, then add my cable bracelet from Katie’s, and anchor it with my Michael Kors watch. I feel like I can get away with this arrangement at school because the watch is practical, and the other pieces are fairly small and not too fussy, so it’s still cute, but fairly casual.

Next, I wear my James Avery rings that I’ve worn forever: one on each hand. However, soon I will replace the one on my right hand with my Aggie Ring! WHOOP!

As far as necklaces, I usually wear my delicate, black sideways cross necklace. Although it’s very trendy, I like to wear it because it goes with everything, and because it’s a great reminder throughout the day!

For earrings, I tend to wear studs. My current favorites are these kitten earrings from Target, but I also wear my pearls, my Kendra Scott Morgan Studs, or any other shape and size of studs.

This might seem like a lot of jewelry for some, but for those of us who love our gems, it’s just enough! What is included in your everyday jewelry?

Outfit of the Day- High Waist, High Style

Hey Cats!

As I mentioned, I turned 21 on Saturday! I already shared my outfit from my first celebration with my family, and now I’ll show you what I wore for round two! I went to dinner with my two besties from my hometown, and it was so fun!

I am absolutely obsessed with these high-waisted shorts from Tickled Pink Boutique, my newest favorite little shop in Tyler. They have the cutest ….well, everything, and it’s very reasonable. Anyways, I found these chevron print high-waisted shorts a few weeks ago and fell in love! I knew they had to be added to the family. These are my first pair of high-waisted shorts. I’m a little late with this trend because I’ve never found a pair that looked good on me. I’m looking forward to many different casual and dressy options for these shorts!

I paired them with a tucked-in black, flowy tank from Loft, Target wedges, a vintage belt (it was my grandma’s- I’ve had it for literally 8 years and this is the first time I’ve successfully incorporated it into an outfit and I’m beyond thrilled), my Michael Kors watch I got for my birthday, a Lily and Laura bracelet, and Kendra Scott Morgan studs.

Unfortunately this picture is a little blurry,  but I had a great time celebrating with these lovely ladies!

What’s your favorite way to wear high-waisted shorts?

Outfit of the Day-Bachelorette Party!

Hey Cats!

My cousin’s bachelorette party was this past weekend, and it was a blast! We stayed in a precious hotel in downtown Dallas and had dinner and a lingerie shower. It was fun, but not too crazy, which was perfect! I was really excited to wear “going-out clothes”, since I don’t get to go out when I’m home.

This navy skirt is one of my favorites! It’s BCBGeneration, and it’s the perfect going-out skirt! I paired it with this top from Loft, and my favorite wedges (they’re old and I couldn’t find them online, but I like these from Steve Madden, these (also Steve), and these from Jessica Simpson). I decided to go with a bold necklace and smaller earrings. I wore the Neely necklace from Kendra Scott with the Morgan studs, also from Kendra. I finished it off with a Lily and Laura bracelet, and my kate spade idiom bangle.
