Sometimes all an outfit needs is a little attention up top. By adding an eye-grabbing statement necklace or a chic vest, your outfit's dynamic instantly changes. Instead of wearing separates, you've created a cohesive look.
In this ensemble I decided to accessorize with a necklace and a vest. I chose a denim vest for a laid-back summer feel and a turquoise necklace for a bold, fresh look.
This two-toned ring is one of my favorites. I wear it every day and it goes with everything.
I wish I could do this to my hair myself but unfortunately I can only get this look from my hair stylist. What I would do for my own daily personal hair dresser, am I right ladies?
I am so drawn to the color turquoise (it reminds me of the ocean) and I think it's perfect for summertime. Wearing it as a statement necklace against a neutral background creates an effortlessly dramatic effect.
These nude peep-toes have become an instant favorite of mine. They're Clark's, which means they're insanely comfortable, yet the style factor is all there. I love peep-toes for summer because you get to show off your pedi!
A stack of silver bracelets polishes off any ensemble.
I can't believe I used to shy away from long skirts just because I'm petite. I've discovered that one of the keys to appearing taller is wearing nude heels. Plus, I love the fit and feel of this Gap piece - I'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of it this summer and beyond.

I've wanted this denim vest for quite a while (since last summer to be exact), and I'm so happy to finally have it in my possession. I'm already dreaming up many more looks featuring this little beauty.
Denim has been on a steady rise for multiple seasons in a row now and it's easy to see why. Denim is classic and versatile. And in vest form, it adds an urban chic appeal to any look.
