Happy Monday, Ladies! Hope you all had a great weekend with a perfect mix of activities and relaxation. We sure did over here! I even managed to eat some chips and queso on a patio, so I’m basically winning at life.
Today’s post has a lot of pieces that I’m really excited to share with y’all.
Remember how I told you that I’ve got a bracelet design collaboration coming up with Victoria Emerson? I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE THESE NEW BRACELETS WITH YOU! Well, I had a big photo shoot for the bracelets last week, and I spent a lot of time putting outfits together that I thought would best highlight the bracelets. I really loved a lot of what I wore, and I realized I needed to share all of it with you now since most of it will probably be sold out by May 20th (the bracelet launch date) when the post will go live.
So, today I’m sharing the outfits and including the shoes and the bags that I used to style the outfits for the bracelet post.
I put together this outfit to highlight a gorgeous turquoise cuff with 5 strands of different turquoise beads, stones, and sparkly gems. I named it The Hudson, and I know y’all are going to love it.
I knew I wanted a really special top to highlight the bracelet, and when I found this embroidered blouse online, I knew it was the one. I threw it in my cart immediately, I got it, I tried it on, I fell in love, and then I realized how much I paid for it. Oops! I had been buying lots of different pieces to prepare for the shoot, and it seems I wasn’t paying attention to the price tags. Well, once I tried it on, there was no going back. It’s the most expensive shirt I’ve ever purchased (and probably ever will), but gosh I love it. Click HERE to see me in it. For size reference, I wear a medium because there’s not much give in the chest and I need the room.
I’ve already worn it with my favorite denim shorts and my favorite white jeans, and it looks awesome with both. Next time I wear it, I’m going to wear it with my straight leg cropped jeans and wedges to dress it up a bit!
I styled this outfit to highlight the bracelet I’m calling The Tindall. It’s a 5 strand wrap with color blocks of sparkly beads that vary all the way from from milky white rounds beads to pink iridescent emerald cut stones.
Girls. This embroidered blouse is absolutely dreamy. The embroidery work, the colors, and the floral pattern are all gorgeous. And the sleeves! LOOK AT THE SLEEVES! They reach almost to my elbow (I really love the longer length) and they have gathered and ruffled details that are just so pretty. It’s got a boho vibe and I totally dig it. For the shoot, I wore my itty bitty boot cut jeans and loved how they looked together. I’ll also be wearing this top with denim shorts, white jeans, and regular denim. Also…just fyi…it looks like it’s realllllllly low cut, but it’s not! I can wear it without a cami and not show any cleavage.
And let’s talk about the wooden handled clutch. Isn’t it great? It comes in a sunshine yellow too.
The bracelet for this outfit is called The Budreaux, and it’s a pretty combination of blush and creamy neutral colors with both beads and stones. I wanted the outfit to be kind of sweet, to match the sweetness of the bracelet.
This cherry cardigan doesn’t have great reviews online, but I happen to love it. I think it’s a really pretty red, I think the cherries are adorable, and I love the fit. If you have a really long torso it will be probably be too short for you, but I will never have that problem. I have a medium.
These straight leg cropped jeans are one of my favorite finds over the last month or so. They are a great way to kind of ease into a new and more modern cut of jeans. I wear my regular size 27. They have a bit of stretch in them and are quite comfy.
The Jackson is an all gold and white cuff bracelet that’s a little dramatic, and I knew I wanted to style it with white jeans and a statement top. I think I nailed it. This bold pattern and these vibrant colors are fabulous. For size reference, I wear an 8 in this top.
These white jeans are my favorites. They are stretchy, comfy, and flattering. Click HERE if you want a full review of them and to see them styled in 10 different outfits. I think everybody needs a pair of white jeans they love in their closet, and I highly recommend these white jeans.
This outfit is for The Scout bracelet. It’s a crystal wrap with clear, blush, and light grey beads. It’s so so pretty.
We forgot to take a flat lay of this outfit while we were in the studio space, so I grabbed one when I got home. Can we take a minute and talk about how adorable this bag is? BECAUSE IT’S ADORABLE. The bag and the shoes are statement makers…but the tee, jeans, and denim jacket are all great staples.
And now for a good look at the sandals…
These neutral wedges are almost sold out, but they also come in white and a fun clear option that both have better stock.
These wedges are fabulous. The wedge is braided, there’s little white stitching details, they’ve got a great square toe, and they are a perfect neutral. The strap has a bit of stretch to it, so you can actually pull them off and on without having to mess with the buckle (which I totally appreciate). I love not having to buckle them each time I put them on.
They are on the narrow side, so if you have wide feet, these might not be for you. For size reference, I would suggest sizing up a 1/2.
These sandals are awesome. I’m wearing the “cactus suede”, which is a really pretty grey blue color, but I like them in all the colors that are available (neutral, black, gold, white, and mustard). They don’t have great reviews, but I absolutely love mine! They don’t have any cushion, so I wouldn’t walk in them at an amusement park or anything, but I’ve worn them on errands, out to dinner with the girls, and on a trip to the mall. They’ve given me no trouble! I would recommend sizing up a 1/2.
And great news! Right now they are 30% OFF!
These studded cross band sandals are my favorite Target purchase in a long time. I love that they are totally neutral, but have these awesome studs to make them totally modern. They also come in classic black. True to size for me.
These cognac sandals are from last year. And even though I loved them last year, I thought I would go ahead and grab a new and different pair of cognac sandals this year. I ordered 3 new pairs, and I ended up just sticking with these. They were the most comfy of the bunch, and they were the easiest to dress both up and down. True to size for me.
These patent sandals are from last year as well, and I still love them. They are from Amazon, they are right at $40, and they are excellent quality and totally comfortable with a padded foot bed. If you love Tory Burch Miller sandals, but don’t want to pay the price, these are an excellent alternative. They come in 29 colors! I sized up a 1/2.
And check out this collection of awesome spring and summer bags. These particular bags are from Amazon, LOFT, and Anthropologie. You already saw 5 of the 7 bags in the flat lays above, but I included others in this pic that I ordered as well. Anthropologie actually has a ton of awesome bags, click HERE to see them all.
That’s it for today, y’all!
I didn’t want you ladies to miss out on these awesome pieces, because like I said, I expect that most of them will be sold out by the time the post goes live. I’m going to ask you one more time to mark you calendars for the bracelet launch on May 20th! AND GET EXCITED!
Have a great Monday, everybody! I’ll see you all back here on Wednesday.
