Happy Friday! Has this felt like a really long week to anyone else?

It's no secret that I love the feeling that it's finally Friday after a long week. It's also no secret that I love statement jewelry. On any given day, you can see me wearing a handful of colorful jewels. I especially love wearing beautiful, bold pieces in the summer because they provide such a quick, instant upgrade to an otherwise plain and boring outfit! Summer is the one season you can get away with going bolder and standing out, so you might as well take advantage of it, right?

One of my favorite ways to mix up my style in the summer is to pair a plain striped shirt and peplum skirt (perfect for work or even a girls night out!) with a big chunky necklace and colorful bracelets, like in the collage above. It can totally change the look of an entire outfit in a very inexpensive way, which I think we all can appreciate.

Two of my other go-to looks that I like to wear statement necklaces with are boyfriend jeans and a plain casual top, and then everyone's favorite chambray shirt with shorts. It gives the outfits more of an edge!


Some of my favorite places to shop for fabulous, inexpensive accessories are: T + J Designs, Bauble Bar, The Rad Market, and Forever21.

What is your favorite accessory to spice up an outfit in the summer?

Also, did you hear that H&M is now available to shop online? Even though we have a few local stores here in Columbus, I'm pretty giddy about this news!

This weekend is the annual Irish Festival which is always so much fun, and tomorrow we got a group of friends together and plan to go cabrewing (don't you love that word?) during the day, weather permitting. We are supposed to get thunderstorms so I'm not sure if it will hold off, but I'm crossing my fingers!

Have an amazing weekend, would you? Here's to hoping it won't go by too quick...
