Wish List Wednesday: Unique Necklaces

August 20, 2014

What do the words bubble, fan, and bib all have in common? They’re all popular styles of necklaces that I own way too many of!

Now don’t get me wrong,I love my yellow bubble necklace — the well-worn (err, tarnished) chain is proof — but when I count three other women in my office wearing bubble necklaces in different colors, it has me craving a statement necklace style that is super unique. Are there any gems out there that haven’t been worn to death yet? If so, I will find them!

Summer to Fall: Wear Now, Wear Later

August 18, 2014

August is an awkward month for shopaholics like us. Do we shop for summer clothes? Or start stocking up for fall? I’m always so conflicted!

One could argue August is a good month to not shop at all — but I’m sorry, #notgonnahappen. My solution? Shop for summery items that can be worn now and that will easily transition to cooler weather. I love pairing a floral summer skirt with a sweater and booties once October rolls around. Or taking a great summer tank into fall with the help of a colorful cardigan. It’s all about layering, and a little creativity.

Here are three items to curb your summer shopping cravings — all of which still work once fall arrives!

Wish List Wednesday: Florals

August 13, 2014

This time last year, I was a crazed bride-to-be, filling the month of August with last minute wedding planning, DIY projects, and maybe even a little honeymoon outfit shopping (admit it: you did it, too!). The hubby and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and we’ve had fun recently reminiscing about Maui’s beautiful beaches, the waterfalls, the rainbows, the flowers. It was the most beautiful place we’ve both ever been.

My Hawaiian daydreams have me inspired to add a few more pretty floral items to my summer wardrobe. A rose here, a hibiscus there — I’m wishing for feminine floral patterns, especially as we hang on to the end of summer. It’s time to stop and shop the roses.
