Summer Roundup | Accessories are Everything

Summer Roundup | 4 Ways to Change 1 Uniform Outfit via DelphineThe flirty skirt with a simple tank tucked in seems to be the easiest, but also the most popular go to of trends this season. It’s cool in the hot summer heat, chic for any occasion and the options for accessorizing it are endless. We came up with four different outfits that cater to whatever style you’re going for that day. Despite the heat, no need to sweat trying to mix it up, we got it covered!

“UNIFORM” SOURCES || Tank: Smocked Bottom Cami from Target | Skirt: Factory Wide-Striped Mini from J.Crew Factory

Outfit 1: Whether it’s with the girls or with your someone special, this outfit is the perfect dinner date outfit. The accessories are pretty, simple and neutral so together with the navy and pink it’s the perfect amount of class and sass. SOURCES || Necklace: Bellaire Circle Drop Necklace from Francesca’s | Belt: Sandpoint Stitched Belt from Francesca’s | Bag: Calvin Klein Modena Leather Tote from 6PM | Shoes: Periphery Wedge Sandals from Asos

Outfit 2: Since we already did a dinner date outfit, it is only right to come up with a lunch date outfit as well. Flats are perfect because they are comfortable and cute but they keep the ensemble sharp and not too casual. Pair it with a bright purse and some gold jewelry and you’re good to go! SOURCES || Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators | Necklace: Triple Gold Chunky Chain Collar from Bauble Bar | Purse: Snake Embossed Crossbody Clutch from Nordstrom | Shoes: Merona Madge Cap Toe Ballet Flat from Target

Outfit 3: This may be our most casual look but it is still nothing short of fabulous. Perfect for the weekend! Mixing and matching many colors is all the rage this season so don’t be shy to pair a colorful belt, earrings, and bag, especially if you have neutral sandals.  SOURCES  || Sunglasses: With Love from CA Half Frame Tortoise Sunglasses from PacSun | Earrings: 2 Stone Drop Earrings from Target | Belt: BCBGMAXAZRIA Double Wrap Waist Belt from Lord & Taylor | Purse: Cole Haan Zoe Izzie Clutch from 6PM | Shoes: Steven Madden Cuff Leather Sandals from Lord & Taylor

Outfit 4: So obviously this last look is the office look. It’s important to be excited to go to work everyday and we believe the outfit has a lot to do with it! Keep it professional with a jacket and closed toed shoes. Add a bold statement necklace for a little edge, and don’t forget a roomy tote to stash your files. SOURCES || Jacket: Topshop Textured Blazer from Nordstrom | Necklace: Laura Necklace from Mimi Boutique | Bag: Ivanka Trump Crystal Bag from 6PM | Shoes: Arturo Chiang Avia Pointy Toe Pump from Lord & Taylor

My Newest Treasure: Rock Crystal Necklace

Natural Rock Crystal Necklace by delphineA few weeks ago I went to the Gem Faire in Del Mar, California with my mom. Mom, among her many talents, is a jewelry designer. I scored a pile of natural crystals and Mom turned them into this gorgeous statement necklace. It’s made of real rock crystals, so it’s quite heavy, but totally worth the neck strain. Merci, Maman!

statement necklace

Mémé Delphine’s favorite store is Talbots. (She pronounces it “Tal-bo,” which makes it sound so chic). So I have spent many hours sitting in the “husband” chair waiting for her. But next time I’m in there I am going to head over to the accessories department, because I see that they have some very cool, hip necklaces, like the pretty one shown above. I like the understated hues, paired with not-too-shiny gold. It’s chunky, but not crazy heavy looking.

Choosing a statement piece of jewelry for your wedding day is tricky — look for something that reflects your personality, isn’t too trendy, and will stand the test of time. I particularly like something that you can dress down, and wear with a white shirt and jeans. Every time I wear my wedding day necklace I think of the first time I wore it, and how amazing that day was.

love: faux floral boutonnieres

While there is nothing quite like a gorgeous fresh flower, I quite like this idea of faux floral boutonnieres. Aren’t these lovely? I spotted them on Etsy, by The One Happy Girl. I don’t see why you can’t have lush fresh floral arrangements and timeless details like these “faux fresh” lovelies. It’s little bits like this, I believe, that define an event, agreed?

wish list: party jewels

All of a sudden my social calendar is full of cocktail parties! Yay! But what to wear??? On my wish list now: these three lovely party jewels. The Banana Republic multi-strand silver necklace with a leaf detail would be a great layering piece (and it’s on sale!). You can’t beat Forever21′s awesome prices. This cool twisted necklace is only $11 and the darling turquoise bead chandelier earrings are even less!

oh so chic: green feather hair clip

Isn’t this green feather hair clip by Lucia Bella gorgeous? She says her designs are inspired by vintage glam, couture, and rock & roll. I can see all three here for sure! Trés chic for a rehearsal dinner outfit or a glamourous bride. It might be too much for a gaggle of bridesmaids to have the exact same clip, but if they had similar ones, perhaps chosen to complement their hair color (and the dresses, of course)  … how great would that be? Swoon.

bejeweled: fanciful fish

I wore my new fishy necklace the other day. It’s pretty wacky and big (the fish is about 4 inches long) for me, but there’s just something about it that I love. As a rule, I don’t buy much jewelry since I’m able to “borrow” from my mom’s inventory (she’s a jewelry designer). But at $4.80 I couldn’t pass this fishy up. I got it at Forever 21. For less than five bucks. Did I mention that it cost less than five dollars? For real.
