Summer Must Have Jewelry: Gold Necklaces

Can we talk summer jewelry? Oversized statement pieces for date nights or a nights out with the girls are great but there’s nothing that I love more than delicate, dainty jewelry for day AND night! Their elegance, simplicity and wearability always keeps me going back to gold necklaces

My favorite new piece this summer is this Obelisk Pendant in the most beautiful rose gold shade (also available in yellow and white gold). Simple, elegant, edgy AND wearable in 2 lengths. A beautiful forged gold bar is suspended on a hidden bail from a delicate gold chain, secured by a lobster clasp.

A single, tapered blade of gold is a singular statement. Both elegant and audacious, it’s the killer accessory your simple sweater or crisp, classic shirt needs.

Gold necklaces make it so easy to effortlessly dress an outfit up or down. I’m always looking for pieces that are not only beautiful and timeless but made from the best quality material at reasonable prices.

If you are looking to add an extra finishing touch to any outfit, finding the perfect accessories is key. My favorite way to elevate and finish an outfit is by adding simple but beautiful pieces.

During the super hot Georgia summers, I tend to simplify my outfits. I’m also a busy mom of 3 who likes to throw on a cute dress, some strappy sandals, some lip gloss and be out for the day – or night. My jewelry needs to match my crazy life. Simple jewelry is always on my must wear list. Gold is my favorite metal so I always gravitate to pieces that are beautiful and versatile.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite gold necklaces and pairing them with the perfect outfits for the season. Simple, delicate pieces that will take your everyday looks to the next level. Whether you are heading to a pool party, brunch or date night… you can never go wrong with dainty gold necklaces.

Comment below and let me know which pieces you love and what items you would pair them with! I’d love to hear what’s your go to necklace or one you have on your current “wish list”.

4 Awesome Ways to Style Your Outfit with Sneakers

Sneakers are the perfect addition to pretty much any outfit.  Not only are they comfortable, but they also never go out of style.  From bold and brash Gucci sneakers to classic Adidas Originals, and the more skater-style Vans and Converse, sneakers are no longer purely reserved for the gym.  You can dress them up or dress them down and embody a true sense of style no matter where you go.  If you’re a bit unsure about how to style your sneakers, read on.  We’re going to give you a variety of style ideas that will make you want to leave your heels behind and switch to something more relaxed.

White Sneakers with Cuffed Jeans

Nothing says effortlessly stylish like a pair of white sneakers worn with cuffed jeans.  Pair them with a light t-shirt and an oversized bag and you’ll look cool and relaxed during the summer months of the year.  Any style of white sneakers works well here, but we especially love the Chuck Taylor Converse for this look.  Crisp and charming, and made from fabric rather than leather, they’re a top addition to any summer wardrobe.

Sporty 80s Style Sneakers with Double Denim

Double denim is one of this season’s must-have trends, and nothing pairs better with it than a pair of sporty 80s style sneakers.  White is again the most popular color here, but there’s no rule that states you can’t opt for black, or even a brighter color if you wish.  When shopping for sneakers for this look, look for a pair with a large tongue, which you can leave hanging open.  Adidas has some great sneakers that would be perfect for this look, with their Hardland range being a good choice.

High-End Sneakers with a Midi Dress

Midi dresses are especially popular during the summer months, as they not only look fantastic but also keep you cool as well.  Rather than pairing your midi with a pair of sandals or flip flops this season, dress up your look and show off your personality with a pair of high-end Gucci sneakers instead.  The Gucci collection found at ssense.com includes some fantastic options that will work well with midi dresses of all colors. Add a statement bag and a pair of oversized sunglasses to complete the look.

Vans or Converse with Vintage Tees

Sneakers don’t have to be reserved for trips to the gym.  In fact, as you can see from this list, fashionable sneakers can be worn for all occasions!

For the ultimate in cool girl style, you can’t go far wrong with a pair of Vans or Converse paired with a vintage tee.  High tops or low tops, the choice is yours, as is the color you choose.  Matched with a pair of denim shorts, a Guns n Roses t-shirt, and a large hat, you’ll definitely turn heads as you walk down the sidewalk or along the beach on a hot summer’s day.  Wear your hair loose to complete the look.
