Lately, my schedule has been filled with work at local coffee shops, fashion events and nights out in Palm Beach. I thought, just for fun, I’d share with you what I would wear to all three of these occasions. And how jewelry plays a big part in styling each look!

Go-to Off-Duty Work Look


I love working from home but sometimes it’s nice to change things up, especially if you live in a studio apartment. So, once a week, I force myself to work out of a coffee shop where I’ll spend several hours answering emails, writing or researching trends. Not only does working out of a coffee shop help stimulate creativity and combat writer’s block (which I fall victim to every now and then), but it allows me to see friends and meet new people.

Trust me, I get it. For most, this isn’t considered a traditional “work” look. But for me, it is! As a blogger, it’s important to have killer personal style – at all times. Plus, I’m a firm believer that what a person wears can affect the way they feel and act. So, jeans, blazer and a t-shirt tend to be my go-to outfit.

I believe jewelry should always reflect your mood, just like clothing! Sometimes I love stacking on bracelets and rings, while other times I prefer a dainty necklace and studs. But since this look is pretty casual, I needed some extra oomph so I added the Ariadne Bib and the Quasar Bracelets from BaubleBar to elevate it. And voilà! Instantly, it goes from “bland” to “blogger-approved.”

One of the easiest ways to dress up a t-shirt is to throw on a big chunky necklace. And lately, I’m all about embracing silver metal. This one lends a vintage feel to it. How cool is the pendant?!

My stacked bracelets can be worn as shown or mixed with gold, like a gold watch or simple gold bangle. Trust me, mixing metals can look very polished if done correctly.

Aside from both pieces adding luxe to my look, I looove how versatile they are. Yes, statement jewelry can be versatile! They can be worn casually or together with a sleek black gown and heels. Both looks are just as stunning.

How I Dress to Impress at Local Fashion Events with Industry Insiders

For me, local fashion events are a great way to show others what my personal style is all about. I tell myself, less is more, when putting together an outfit. It took a long time for me to learn that I did not have to conform to the norm and dress outlandish to be memorable. I just needed to be me.

At heart, my style is pretty classic. I love trends, but I always go back to timeless pieces like a simple sweater or a denim skirt. As I mentioned, I try to accessorize in a way that compliments my outfit and doesn’t take away from – me! There’s nothing more distracting than a dangly bracelet or a tacky necklace.

A beautiful pair of earrings can enrich and enliven the most basic look. This pair, the Aleeza Drops, are a fun twist on an classic accent – pearls! Plus, they’re in direct line of vision of anyone I talk to, which I always consider before a big fashion event. To me, they feel elegant and sophisticated.  

The Syndown Bracelet and the Milkyway Necklace were the ideal partners for this classic look so I popped my collar and rolled up my sleeves to subtly show them off!  

You don’t need a ton of accessories to give your style personality. A beautiful earring, a dainty necklace and a simple gold bracelet work for this look. Subtle pieces that reflect who I am and act as an extension of my wardrobe…

Night out in Palm Beach!

The best time to visit Palm Beach is between October and March, also known as “season” here. The weather fluctuates between mid-60s and high 80s. During this time, Palm Beach is flooded with northerners. There are endless parties. Charity events. Functions. You name it. It’s sooo much fun!

With each event, I consider the vibe I’m going for. I wanted something flirty and playful since it’s still relatively warm outside so I went with a little red dress for this look. Doesn’t it remind you of Emma Stone’s character in La La Land?!

An open neckline is the perfect opportunity to highlight a glitzy accent, like this Alexandria Necklace. I styled it with striped Concordia Crispin Drops in black and white to work a little pop into my look. And the Crystal Mason Ring to add some pizzazz and sparkle!

It’s no secret that I love accessories. You guys know this! It’s an essential component of an outfit. Jewelry plays a big part in how I present myself every day. A statement necklace acts as an ideal accessory for a casual off-duty look. Beautiful earrings add sophistication to a classic outfit. And playful details, like a shimmery gold necklace and striped drop earrings, turn a simple red dress into a fresh look…
