Rocksbox: June Edition

Happy Tuesday! So I have to admit I have been sitting on this post for a while. When my Rocksbox arrives I get excited and always try to show it to you quickly, however, I like to live in the pieces for a little bit before I review them for you all. This time I really wanted to focus on super delicate pieces. I really go low key in the summertime with jewelry.  So everything in this box are super easy pieces that you can wear every day. Let's go!

SOPHIE PARKER PAVE MARQUISE PENDANT
I was really excited about this one I love a little marquise and, hello rose gold! I love a little blingy piece for a necklace that isn't too much that I couldn't wear it to work. This definitely fits that bill. It is a little smaller in person than I realized. It's also a little shorter than I realized too. You can adjust it but it doesn't get that long. I'm not partial to short necklaces, just a personal preference. It would be good for layering, but I do that less in the summer. I would say this lays about at your collar bone. Good for an off the shoulder top or V-neck top.


SOPHIE HARPER TINY ARROW STUDS
These might be my favorite piece. I don't know what it is about arrows but I just love the silhouette. Just so cute and fun. These dainty little studs are perfect for everyday. I have worn these most days since I got them. I love them. Simple and chic and they go with everything, plus a little sparkle!



SOPHIE HARPER PAVE CIRCLE RING
This I love too. I have wanted a circle ring for a while. I am also a big fan of negative space in jewelry so a circle is just perfect for that. This is super lightweight. So much so some times I forget I am wearing it. It's rose gold again because I can't get enough of it. I have worn this one to work a bit, but I think I would prefer to wear it out to dinner or on the weekend. The bling is a little fancy for work. The pave stones are kind of flashy and a bit much. I truly love this one and would be a great addition if you are looking for something similar.



There you have it! Do you have a favorite piece? Which one should I keep?

Chic Summer Beige

Annnnd I'm back! So it's been a little while since I got a post up an I apologize for being so quiet, but I got a great look for you today. It's the weekend and I am ready to relax!

A few weeks ago I went to an opening for a new shop nearby and took that as an opportunity to try out this new top I'd be eyeing. I super love this top. First, a peplum is always a flattering shape. Hits just where you would want to create that hourglass silhouette. I'm not quite as tan as I'd like to be, but later into the summer when I am (hopefully) golden tan this will look a lot better. I love the chicness of a beige color against my skin tone. The little black polka dots are just a fun little extra. I matched it with the high waisted white jeans. You need a high waist with this top as it is a little short. I suppose if you are more of a petite you wouldn't need it, but for those of us of average or above average height a high waist is a necessity. These are actually more of a jegging but I really love them. They fit like a jean but are stretchy like a legging. Also for a white jean they are relatively not see through. Sometimes I worry about that. I topped the look off with a simple slide. I wanted to keep the look simple, clean a chic. Maybe my favorite part of this item is this necklace. I admit it's expensive, but I love it so much I don't care. I am loving this coin necklace trend and this layered piece is perfect for summer!

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week around here. Last week of school, I am moving out of my office today and we are packing to move out of our house at the end of the month.  Woof, it's busy. I am ready for a chill weekend. 

Made for Madewell

It's official. I am a walking Madewell billboard. I have been joking with my friend for a while about how much I love them and I just want to live there. You ever have a brand that just 'gets' you? Even when I am shopping online at, say, Nordstrom the majority of the items I find in my cart are Madewell. It just is a brand that feels like everything looks effortless, but chic at the same time. Many of the pieces can transfer from work to weekend and I'm all about that practicality.
