RUSH by Denis and Charles Eva Multi-Strand Bracelet

2 Sep

While long necklaces have had our heart lately, it’s time to let a fun bracelet take the spotlight. The layered arm bling trend is still very much happening, so today we bring the Eva Multi-Strand Bracelet into action.

This bracelet features 11 strands of bronze, charcoal, gold chain, and crystal. My favorite feature is the mix of metallics. This bracelet allows us to mix our metals and color palettes while choosing our outfit and additional accessories.

The mix of red-ish brown jeans with a black top make this bracelet work. The bronze tones of this bracelet are also the perfect gateway to wear this piece all fall long.

Study Abroad Packing List & Fall Fashion Essentials

18 Aug

Since February, I have been writing the blog and posting the Instagram content for Sweet Bling. I love getting the chance to style and take photos for the social media and being a part of such a fun website. Very soon, I will be going to Nantes, France where I will be studying abroad for the semester. But before I head off, I wanted to share some of my favorite fall fashion essentials and a few items I found to be necessities for my travels throughout Europe. I chose pieces that can transform from day to night and work well for many situations. It isn’t always easy to be fashion savvy and travel light!

Black Felt Hat– I can’t wait to wear this Urban Outfitters hat all around Europe. For travel days, days I don’t have time to fix my hair, or days I want to add a bit of flare to my outfit! The black makes it simple, wear with any color you like.

Taupe Heeled Booties– Often when I’m shopping, I have a difficult time choosing what color of an item I want! Taupe makes life a bit easier by its ability to go with both blacks and browns. Matching all leathers and colors isn’t a fashion must. Mixed materials makes things a bit more interesting! I have many tall boots, but when I saw these sweet heeled booties at Nordstrom, I had to have them. The heel and low cut is very chic. I will wear these with anything from daytime denim to a LBD.

School Backpack– I was on a hunt to find a backpack that is practical with lots of compartments, a water bottle holder, and comfort. Those specifications usually eliminate many of the cute, girly backpacks on the market! I was so happy when I found this backpack at Burton, the light gray pattern is soft and neutral.

Sweet Bling Pearl and Rhinestone Long Necklace– This necklace is essential when packing light. It instantly dresses up simple denim, or finishes a glamorous look.

Satchel Purse– When traveling around Europe, or in daily life, it’s nice to have your wallet and phone in a safe, close place. This bag is compact for comfort and convenience, and is easy to throw on under a coat if necessary.

That’s a wrap on my favorite items I’ll be bringing to Europe! Whether you’re a traveling or happy at home this fall, check out these items and they’ll become your new fashion staples.

Spring Maxi Dress with Nakamol Cuff Bracelet

14 Apr

Sweet Bling has various designer selections, including Nakamol, a jewelry company based out of Chicago. What is unique about this jewelry is that each piece is handmade in Thailand. Pieces we carry range from delicate beaded necklaces to original wrap and cuff bracelets. While the wrap bracelets are a staple for the layering bracelet trend that is gaining major attention, the cuff bracelets are more of statement pieces with a wide leather band and bright beading.

Today we work with our Nakamol Turquoise Flower Cuff. This bracelet features detailed turquoise and gold beading on top of a rich brown leather cuff. This piece inspires a play on texture and color, which transcends into today’s outfit choice.

Starting with an olive green maxi dress, there are many reasons this dress speaks. Maxi dresses have the ability to be dressed up or down, making them a wardrobe must. Olive green is a color that works as a neutral in the way it flawlessly pairs with endless colors. It is however more vibrant than a white, black, or gray for variety. Olive green against this cuff’s gold and turquoise especially pops. Choosing to dress down this look, a denim jacket is key. This one in particular is partially distressed and with the maxi dress, pulls hints of the olive green. Some leather gladiator sandals or even flip-flops would complete this spring ensemble, with the option to remove the denim jacket in the sunshine. But with a cool breeze and a desire for some casual edge, I couldn’t resist throwing on my Steve Madden Troopa Boots in brown leather. Boots with a dress has a beautiful feminine appeal with an element of surprise. This distressed brown leather also works with with the rich leather of the Nakamol Cuff. The combination of leathers, denim, and a simple maxi all compliment each other with a mixture of texture and color.

With this cuff, dare to be bold with your patterns and textures. Or for a quieter look, this cuff will speak for itself against softer hues.

Today’s featured piece is the Nakamol Turquoise Flower Cuff. For all Nakamol selections and more designer picks, check out Sweet Bling here.
