What I Wore: Late Summer Wedding

Monday, September 1, 2014

Yesterday, one of my good friends from college got married - congratulations Nicole and Michael! Weddings are one of my favorite excuses to dress up. A flowy dress, a pair of wedges... Yup, that's my definition of fancy. But it was also the perfect occasion to wear my new Anjolee necklace, which added a subtle hint of sparkle to an otherwise minimal look.

Nicole's ceremony was as beautiful as she was. The couple said their vows at beautiful vineyard outside of Portland, followed by a fun evening of food and dancing. I was so glad that I got to share in the special day!

A big thanks to Anjolee for polishing up my favorite summer wedding look yet! The jewelry brand has a beautiful collection of wedding bands and jewelry, like the riviera diamond necklace. What's your summer wedding style? I'd love to hear about it in a comment below!

What I Wore: Simple in the Summer Heat

Thursday, August 21, 2014

When the weather gets hot, my sense of style gets boiled down to its simplest form. A dress and sandals? About all that I can stand for when the temperatures creep above 85 degrees. I know - such a wimp. This outfit is the perfect example of how minimalistic I get during the summer.

But there are a few accessories that I'm never without during the summer. And a good pair of sunglasses in on that list. Firmoo is an online shop that carries all sorts of glasses and sunglasses - and at great prices too. If you don't wear prescription glasses like me, Firmoo can fit most frames with with standard, non-prescription lenses. I liked these wayfarer inspired lenses and it was so fun to try them out for myself.

What's your philosophy for personal style during summer? Does your dedication go out the window when it's hot? Tell me about it a comment.
