When the temperatures start climbing upwards of 80 degrees (as they did this weekend), I always reach for easy, simple pieces that I can add a few interesting details to. Black & white separates provide the perfect backdrop for a tribal print clutch, colorblock heels and my new Stella & Dot necklace. My friend Mary was sweet enough to send this over to me and I was thrilled when it arrived. I know alot of you are already familiar with this brand, but if you’re like me & haven’t yet purchased any of their jewelry, you can shop their gorgeous selection here – I know you’ll be as obsessed as I am!
What I’m wearing:

How funny I own the same clutch, top and am going to get that necklace? Do you have a specific Stell & Dot Stylist?

Gorgeous and classy as always. Hey, I have a question for you (and any other blogger who happens to be reading this): do you have any tricks to picking out your outfits every day? I just wrote a post on one of my little tactics, and I would love some feedback. I don't really have any friends who obsess over their wardrobes like I do, so I have to hit up the blogosphere! The link to my post is below:
Your necklace is awesome…love it!
Love this look! Especially the way you styled your new Stella piece. I'm a Stella & Dot Stylist and just can't get enough of it myself.
Its simple but perfect!
