On Trend: Sweet Lariat

One of my favorite new trends in accessories is the lariat necklace. Delicate and sophisticated, this versatile style makes a great layering piece or an adored staple.  Dress it down with a tee and denim cut offs or fancy it up for a summer wedding.  Here are a few of my faves…

1. Triple Mix Chain Lariat Necklace 
2. Elevate Y Necklace 
3. Purple Rain Necklace 
4. Teardrop Lariat Necklace 
5. Pamola Lariat Necklace 

How would you wear the lariat?

On Trend: Summer Staples

7.1.14

Sometimes my closet overwhelms me.

It’s organized by color, style, and season with shoes in boxes and pictures of each displayed neatly on the outside.  I have my accessories accessibly hanging cleanly and my sweaters folded like a department store on the shelves (for my favorite closet organizing tips visit here).

It is easy to get in a style rut, especially at the end of a season. It’s not quite cool enough for your fall wardrobe, but your summer clothes are looking awfully stale.  There are the obvious places to look for wardrobe inspiration: Pinterest, fashion magazines, celebrity outfits… but those don’t always rekindle the dimming creative flame.
