Navy Outfit & Rocksbox Bracelet


Morning traffic means selfie time, am I right?

But seriously. I was stuck in traffic for a while this morning and decided to snap a quick selfie to show off this gorgeous bracelet I got in my most recent Rocksbox! Right off the bat, I thought it was so pretty but wasn't sure what to wear it with - it's not totally my style so it took a little time to think of the perfect out. I know, I over-analyze outfits and accessories sometimes but it is what it is! I ended up pairing it with a simple outfit that also went well with #hauteinaugust (only 3 days left to enter!!) and will be requesting every Nakamol wrap bracelet Rocksbox has to offer!

What would you wear this little bracelet with!?

Olive Old Navy Skirt

I'll be honest, I have had some difficulty coming up with outfits for our #hauteinaugust army green challenge this week. It's just not a color I wear very much but I can't believe HOW CUTE it looks on everyone else! I have loved every single picture shared with us this week! All of you hot ladies who have participated in our challenge have given me olive inspiration!

I stopped by Old Navy on the way home from work the other night and found this adorable skirt!! Better yet, it was half price which made it only $15! I know I sound like a crazy, but $15 is almost a splurge for me. If you know me at all, you know that I don't spend much money on anything so I was happy to find this cute olive skirt for our challenge this week!


Necklace: Urbanite
Skirt: Old Navy
Flats: Target (only $12 right now!)

LDesiigns Tassel Bracelets

How perfect are these LDesiigns tassel bracelets!? They are the cutest little things and so easy to pair with any outfit. My favorite colors (shown here) are pink, light pink and cream but they have even more colors available. These bracelets are versatile enough to wear to any occasion; you can wear a couple of them to the pool or add a wristful to an adorable summer dress! And guess what? They're only $10 a piece. Seriously. It doesn't get better than that.

I randomly found LDesiigns on Instagram - which is one of the many reasons I love this platform so much. How else would have I ever have found this shop!? Who knows but I'm glad our accounts crossed paths. Be sure to check out LDesiigns on Etsy and follow them on Instagram to see the latest jewelry designs!




For my first time styling these bracelets, I paired them with an equally as bright statement necklace along with a simple black dress. I'm not one to mix up too many colors within my outfits, so I tend to wear more vibrant jewelry with just with a solid-colored "base." However, I do have some more patterned outfits in mind that will match up with these tassels perfectly, so stay tuned

How would you style these tassels?
