1. An Earcuff: I love wearing an earcuff lately. It adds edge without an actual piercing.
Ear Cuff, $88 shopbop.com
2. A bum bag: I’ve always loved fanny packs and I’ve picked a few up at thrift shops over the years. But for those who want something a little higher end, there seem to be more options out there. This version is both convenient & chic.
Bumbag, $165 DKNY
 3. A one piece swimsuit: I wear a one piece as a leotard with jeans or high waist pants because it keeps the lines very clean. You can also hop in the pool at a moment’s notice.
Swimsuit, $59 ASOS
 4. A colorful nail color: I work for P&G and I love the new CoverGirl Nail shades, like Mint Mojito. You really don’t need a topcoat!
CoverGirl Outlast Nail, $4.94 Walmart
 5. Go with everything sandals: I gravitate toward anything clear or Lucite so I hope to pick up these Seychelles’ sandals from Maude in Fayetteville
Seychelles Heels, $89 Maude
 6. A portable iPhone speaker: I keep one in my purse for impromptu dance parties.
iHome Speaker, $19 Target
7. Insoles: I wear heels almost every day. Dr Scholl’s insoles make it possible
High Heel Insole, $7.97 Walmart

What I Wore: More is More

what I wore: t shirt – lauren lee (thrifted), skinny cargos – american eagle, booties – gianni bini, earrings/double ring/band – forever21, peridot ring – vintage, ear cuff – claire’s, collar/cat eye sunnies – asos

I’ve been really into green lately. I’ve had these skinny cargos for a while but always forget about them. The other morning I was looking to wear this gold animal print t-shirt I got at goodwill and then I thought about them. With the croc booties, it’s a lot going on but all in all a fun look.

What I Wore: The Green Gene

what I wore: dress – vintage via grey dog, earrings – vintage, ear cuff – the icing, platforms – FRH, rings – vintage via mae’s
This is one of the first dresses I bought from Grey Dog and it’s still a favorite. I typically wear it on St. Patty’s but also like to bring it out other times. Wearing green makes me feel lucky for some reason. The (gigantic) hair was a bit of an accident. I put leave-in conditioner on dry hair and put it up before I went to sleep. When I took it down this in the morning, I put it in hot rollers.

What I Wore: Anchors Away

what I wore: trousers – ralph lauren, top – forever21, heels – nine west, earrings – forever21, ear cuffs – claire’s, necklace/necklace as bracelet/pinkie ring – vintage from mae’s

I’m always a fan of dressing on theme, even when there’s no occasion. I couldn’t resist wearing this newly acquired anchor tee with my favorite high waist navy trousers.
