Like a Star

 
Tank - She-bible, thrifted
Skirt - the Limited, thrifted
Star Sandals - Poetic License
Necklace - gift from Beth

I'm quickly coming up on four years of blogging. And it's taken me all of that time to really begin pinning down my functional fashion needs, but also developing my personal style. I spent years just forgoing accessories because I don't really like the fussy feeling of a dangling necklace or losing my standard-size bracelets off my tiny wrists. However I'm back to learning why a piece or two of the right jewelry can elevate a look, especially when it has come to my summer 'uniform' of a sleeveless shirt, full skirt, and fun footwear.

Beth sent me this amazing statement star necklace earlier this week. I know I'll get a ton of use out of it. It's large enough for visual impact, but just the right size to be comfortable. Thanks, Beth! I can't express how awesome it is to get dressed everyday and see my friends' generosity in almost every single outfit. I've met some really incredible people through blogging, and I can't believe I ever considered quitting in the early years. 

Sorry about the lighting in today's photo, it was glaring bright this afternoon. I, for one, can not stop thinking about boots, tights, layers! It's been summer since March and probably won't cool off until September. #weathercomplaints, amirite?

  1. YAYYY!!! I'm so glad you like it! And it looks so cute with that purple top and that pink skirt of yours I love! I hope you do get lots more use of it! It's such a fun piece! This made my day!

    Another thing that made my day - I was looking at your obi belt page and you totally named one after me! And some other fab bloggers! You are so sweet!

    And four years of blogging coming up? Woah. Awesome!

  2. Great necklace and it looks great with your outfit! Those sandals rock too. Stopping by to say hello to some favorite bloggers. It's been forever!

  3. Amen girl! In fact, even without fun layers and boots and tights and pants, I am anxious just to walk around without sweating like a pig! I used to be an accessories whore. Really bad. But then I found them to be pains in the butts--especially in the heat. I wear a very minimal amount now compared to what I did wear and I still feel naked without earrings, but I think I found a good balance finally.

    Congrats on the near four years of blogging! That is amazing!

    I loooooove your ombre skirt (skirt sisters! I have one in white and yellow!) and that top is really funky cool. You're right--the necklace looks great with it!

  4. You're not just *like* a star - you ARE a star! You're easily one of my favourite bloggers, and I'm so glad you stuck it out. Heh, four years of blogging - we're old-timers!

    Cool necklace! It's very you.

  6. Did you start blogging when you were 5? Seriously, so glad you stuck with it; I learn a ton from you!

    LOVE the necklace. You know I love me one good statement accessory per outfit - and a Party on the Arm :)

  7. So sweet! I miss our swaps. But we've both changed a bit.

    You're not the first person I've seen longing for fall. I'm not even itching for it a bit. Our summer has been to none. I feel like I have so many summer things to wear and not enough time.

  12. Gosh I should have scooped this skirt up when I had the chance. LOL I AM SURE YOU GOT IT FOR A GREAT DEAL, THRIFTING IT. Also, amazing, amazing sandals. I always like that style of a sandal with a cute and edgy closed back. Yours are 100 times better with those star studs. Cute Statement Necklace, too.

    Good Luck & Congratulations on 4 years of blogging!! We want you here. We need you here! So don't ever think fo quitting this, again. =D
