I love my Ole’ San Miguel shirt. I’m wearing it in the picture on the right. I’ve been wearing it a lot during these hot summer months. I spotted this one at Kuhl Linscomb where the price is double. I love it because it’s a little boho, a little sophisticated, big, flowy and not constricting…wait those are all the same. Shirt – Ole San Miguel

WARNING: The rest are not fashion favorites. I love to buy Lily’s at the grocery store. They smell amazing, they don’t die quickly and they are a bargain compared to the other choices.

The Simple Necklace, Not Just a Trend

The simple short necklace you may think is just a trend, but it’s not! If you think about it, short necklaces date back to B.C.! Have I convinced you to find one for yourself?! These are the best of the best! I love the one pictured above because I wear it when I want to feel a little bohemian. Necklace- Nashelle

If you’ve known me for any amount of time you’ve probably seen me in this necklace more times than not. I like it because it’s a different take on the “monogram necklace.” I used my husband and son’s initials because that meant more to me than my own. You could use any three letters that meant something to you. Necklace-Red Envelope way long ago: for similar Max and Chloe

I was actually wearing this necklace while I was writing this post. This one is extra special because a portion of the profits provide a woman with a microcredit loan in Thailand. My friend Courtney introduced me to this amazing company, Noonday Collection, Thanks Courtney! Daughter’s First Diamond – Noonday Collection

This is the first picture of my friend’s necklaces. I love these photos because you rarely see them without these necklaces on and I love that, it’s who they are! Libby wears this diamond necklace (made by her jeweler) paired with the short James Avery charm necklace. Her children were each given a charm of their initial for their baptism and she wears them, I love it! Diamond Necklace – Neiman Marcus for similar, Charm Necklace – James Avery

Jessica has worn this necklace since the day I met her and I absolutely love it. This cross necklace, of all the cross necklaces I’ve seen, is truly my favorite! Cross Necklace – Neiman Marcus

Morgan wears these Nashelle necklaces as her staple. I loved the bar one so much I bought it for myself! Are you surprised, ha! But what I love most is that she wears them along with her other fun necklaces. I love that! For similar Gold Necklace- Nashelle; Black Necklace- Aarikka

How to get the J. Crew Sleeve Roll

I’ve been asked a lot lately, how do I roll up my shirt sleeves to get that casual look and prevent them from falling!?! You know the roll, the roll that J. Crew does on all of their models and the stores do on their displays?!?! Here’s how:

Unbutton your sleeve. Leave your last button(the gauntlet button) buttoned for a tighter roll.

Roll your sleeve so that it hits a little above your elbow.

Roll it again so that the roll hits in the middle of your cuff.

You can leave it this way or…

pop your cuff

Violia! The casual J. Crew shirt sleeve roll!

How to Take an Outfit from Drab to Fab

Here is my drab outfit, jeans and a tank. Truth be told, I love to wear jeans and a tank but sometimes it does feel a little boring. So what’s the solution? Throw on a statement necklace!

I like statement necklaces too because they allow you to transition easily from day to night! I bought this necklace for $27 from Gypsy Collection Auction on Facebook, can you believe?!?

Necklace – Gypsy Collection Auction on Facebook, Tank – Abound at Nordstrom, Jeans – Citizens of Humanity Ava Straight Leg, Shoes – Mossimo at Target, Purse – J. Crew Factotry, Watch – Michael Kors, Chain Bracelet – Michael Kors
