Boho Bling Style

12 May

A few years back, I was starting to get spring fever so I went to buy something “springy.”  School was getting in the way and an online impulse buy was looking like my best option to curb the burning desire for a shopping spree.

In search of a spring dress, I found a super cute one on a random discount shopping site called Tobi, and just before checking out—I have no idea what came over me—I threw a fedora hat in my shopping “bag.”  What the heck!?  In my defense, the model looked super cute wearing it and for some reason, in that moment, a fedora purchase sounded like just the daring purchase I needed to spice up my otherwise dull spring day.

But let me tell you…Best. Purchase. Ever.  It was so fun to style!  I ended up sporting it all spring and into summer.  It worked with everything!  Casual outfits…short dresses, long dresses, complimented different kinds of sunglasses nicely anddd if I must list a practical component, it may or may not have saved my Irish skin a few extra freckles (you’re welcome mom!).

Ok, so my point here is spring hats are the BOMB.  They’re so fun!  And if you need any more convincing, these photos of our model, Clare,  should do it.

She had a California-chic-meets-European-model look going as we strolled through the Del Mar Plaza.  Her hats made me think of a European spring break and the beachy jewelry added a gorgeous twist of California that brought me right back home.

Her hat + the casual style of her poncho mixed with the classic elegance of the Rebel Refined Gold Stick Necklace with Crystals and the Rebel Designs bracelets got fashion juices flowing.  In my checkout bag now please!

Fall is Here, with Rebel Designs

17 Nov

IMG_3153IMG_3154

Fall has me thinking about extra layers and accessories.

It’s that time of year where the weather flips the switch to fall, the leaves begin to change and your wardrobe calls for a gentle makeover.

I love the fall mornings that start off with the fog of a coastal marine layer and break out into a gorgeous, crisp and sunny afternoon.

That’s why I’m loving Rebel Designs this month.

The designers at Rebel take their inspiration from the rough, yet refined grit of New York City, where the changing of leaves beckons the approach of fall.

Their jewelry is just like the layers of our favorite fall outfits.  Warm base layers with stylish flare accessorizing your entrance into colder temps.

The mix of crystal and leather is the perfect complement to fall—the sparkle of crystal mixed with the deep warmth of leather.

I just purchased a new pair of taupe leather booties that I’m absolutely crazy about.  With a medium-height heal, they can so easily be dressed up or down.  I love pairing them with skinny jeans in a deep, dark denim and throwing on a long cable knit sweater over top.  If I’m feeling some color, I add a light scarf to complete the lookI love any of the Rebel Design cuffs with this look.  When I’m feeling the need for a little extra flare on a rainy morning coffee date, I especially love the Vintage Leather Cuff with the Round Crystal Disk.

This look is great for a mid-morning brunch with friends and so simply transformed into an outfit for a night out on the town—no need to change your jewelry.  Shed the sweater, replace with a deep rust blouse and light, caramel-brown leather jacket—keep your jewelry—and you’re ready for a hip night out on the town.

Nakamol White Leather Cuff with Brown Stone and Printed Top

30 Jun

Today we talk about Nakamol, one of our favorites when it comes to jewelry with a unique flair. This summer we’re inspired by our Nakamol White Leather Cuff with Brown Stone. cuff1 This piece is handcrafted, with a gold metal braid around the stone. The crackled white allows us to be creative with our outfit choices and the natural appeal of the stone gives off a flawless summer vibe. A great feature of this piece is its bend-ability, fitting perfectly to its wearer.

While neutral clothing is usually my go to, today I took advantage of the versatility of this cuff by pairing with a fun print. cuff7For today’s featured piece and more Nakamol picks, check out Sweet Bling here.

Layering Your Bling: The Best 3 Bracelets to Stack

16 Jun

No longer are the days of choosing just one bracelet to accessorize. It’s now all about layering on the bling. To make this trend easy to achieve, having a few bracelets that can be layered with various outfits is key.

1. Chunky Stretch Link Bracelet  ($18) This piece provides a staple to your jewelry wardrobe to pair with endless looks. It makes the perfect base for layering with its versatility and simplicity. This matte gold piece is also special by its secret stretch feature. While looking like links, this bracelet has the ability to slightly stretch, making it easy to throw on.

2. Ivory Leather Crystal Wrap Bracelet  ($32) This wrap with a buckle closure is another neutral, but has some added bling. While the first piece is more of a classic, this piece has a very modern take on a bracelet. Wear solo with distressed denim or layered like we have pictured.
