Style Inspiration

Hello everyone! I recently was flipping through a magazine and found some awesome inspiration that I wanted to take and make my own creations based off of. I’m not the kind of person who likes to follow or buy into trends, but I do like to find different styles and make them my own. I think sometimes if you follow trends too much and take them too seriously, you can end up not feeling like yourself and your own personal flare becomes someone else’s. You should always try new things and be fearless because that’s how you create your personal style! I’ve never been into acting, but I think what you wear can totally influence the way you act, so in a way switching up your style is like becoming a different version of yourself each time!

And since I’m always trying to change up my style, one of the things I love the most about my Chloe & Isabel jewelry is that it can enhance any one of the different styles I want to try.

What do you think of the green-on-green or print-on-print look?

Summer Inspiration

Continuing my bright colors for summer kick – I was reading from my stack of magazines today while completely chilling out by the pool and I had to share part of a style spread that was in Self magazine. I think these looks are the ultimate style inspiration for this summer and I am definitely putting them onto my “to-try” list. I love pastels, they’re one of my favorite things, but, like I said earlier I’m definitely feeling the brights this summer and these photos are such a cool, unique way to wear them. After all, a style bandit has to be fearless with fashion (amongst other things!).

What do you think of these looks – something you would try?



Finally, this was just something else I saw in the magazine, which I also had to share:
