July Sale Style Guide

Check it out! Here is a wonderful Chloe & Isabel style guide showing off just a couple of our 40% off SALE items. In one of my 4th of July posts, I got all excited about my party/BBQ plans for this weekend, so how perfect is it that this style guide is for the “Boho BBQ” ?! I love it!!

The sale only lasts until July 7th, so hurry on over to my boutique & get your party jewels!

In case you all couldn’t tell already, I’m a teeny bit excited for the holidays. So, in the spirit of all these 4th of July themed posts, I also wanted to include a lil’ somethin’ red, white & blue (you can’t tell, but my nose ring is blue 😉 ).

This was my work outfit today & I must say I was feeling the holiday spirit already. My red & white floral dress is from Forever21 and my necklace is of course Chloe & Isabel! I kept it simple and wore this dress with plain jane black flats (mine are from Steve Madden). As you can see, my cats just had to make an appearance…

 I also apologize for the quality of these photos – today was a looong day.

(Not So) Heavy Metals

Recently, my Dad took me out to dinner at this restaurant in the East Village called Dirt Candy (or as my Mom called it, “Dirty Candy”). Let me just tell you – the place is apparently impossible to get reservations at & only seats about fifteen people… and the food is AMAZING. Like, holy crap. Don’t ask questions, don’t think about it, just get yourself a reservation and go!

Anyway, I decided to try something a little bit outside of my regular style that day. I don’t usually go for the plain or geometric metals when I pick out my jewelry, but I tried out Chloe + Isabel’s S-Chain Link Collar Necklace with black skinny jeans and the Shenandoah Tunic from Free People.

I’m glad I went on a whim and threw on the links necklace because it opened me up to trying out styles of jewelry I might not usually go for. I normally would have styled a top like this with a longer, more boho necklace. I think the combo of the boho top with the modern metal necklace turned out cool & unique!

Takeaway lesson: try out unexpected combinations!
