My Simpleton Ways

i’m a simple jewelry kinda gal. no matter how hard i try to fight that by buying statement necklaces and big earrings, i always reach for my simple pieces. i don’t like feeling over-dressed, so maybe that’s why? something about a statement necklace automatically feels dressy to me, even if paired with shorts and a tee. i was working on branching out of my Lauren Simpleton ways when Rachel, of Saressa Designs, reached out to me. her jewelry sucked me right back in, for good reason. it’s gorgeous. 
 the aquamarine bezel style bangle and druzy studs have become regulars in my daily jewelry rotation. they’re easy to pair with just about anything and can be dressed up or down. i like to wear the druzy studs on days when i’m wearing jean shorts and a simple tank. they add a nice little ‘pop’ or something interesting without making me feel overdone. the bangle is the perfect addition to my regular stack of bracelets and a watch. it fits right in with the rest of my jewels and is so light and delicate.

along with using jewelry to accessorize, i like to dip into my items from other seasons, like this light scarf i picked up in the spring. it adds the finishing touch to this ultra-simple outfit and makes me feel a bit more…sophisticated. the neon bag just wraps it all up in a pretty little bow.

even though all the pieces used in this look are simple, when put together, they create a fun outfit that i can wear on the weekend!
