I’m a huge fan of accessories for a multitude of reasons! Not only are they gorgeous to look at, but they take an über casual look, like jeans and a tee, and instantly dress it up! And not to brag, but my earrings still fit from high school. Okay I actually stole that quote from the internet, but it’s hilarious and totally true! Most jewelry will always fit even if those those extremely low-cut Hollister short shorts from high school don’t. Ahem. Therefore, you can feel less guilty about how much you end up shelling out for a faux crystal statement necklace that was probably made in China… not speaking from experience or anything. 😉
Here’s my take on dressed up basics!
Yay for this 2 second half-up top-knot & this infamous Arizona sunset!
LOVE this necklace. HATE when it flips up like that.

I’m sure by now many of you are well aware of and own the beloved kimono. If you don’t, let me convince you why you you must remedy that issue immediately!
1. They instantly make everything you own cooler (not in temperature, obviously.) On second thought, they are usually made of silk or chiffon which makes them light and airy! So swap out your hot, sweaty cardigan for this baby.
2. I know you have a plain black or white top hanging in your closet. Throw this on over your basic tee for an instant upgrade. #byebyebasics
3. Wear it over cut offs, boyfriend shorts, skinny jeans, as a swimsuit cover-up, etc. It really doesn’t matter because it looks good with everything!
I LOVE mine so much I want 93748762390476 more.
Gimme all the kimonos.
