I have long admired India Hicks model, style maven and lifestyle designer.

India first came on my radar with her first book entitled Island Life: Inspirational Interiors which she wrote with her father David Hicks, the famed English interior decorator and designer.

Since that time India has developed a lifestyle brand that has included home decor, bath & body products, accessories and jewelry.  After years of developing products in partnership with other companies, India’s newest business endeavor is a collection of products sold through networks of entrepreneurial women. In India’s words…

“the exclusive collections of well-crafted gifts, beauty and accessories are sold through networks of entrepreneurial women, creating a more meaningful shopping experience”.

Inspired by her British heritage and island life, each product is beautifully crafted with a classic design esthetic that will stand the test of time.

Known for her bohemian vibe, many of the jewelry designs are fun, whimsical and casually chic.

The Komboloi Tassel Necklace (below) is a show stopper!  The history of the Komboloi dates back to a time when monks in Mount Athos began making strands of beads by tying knots in a string at regular intervals in order to say their prayers. #iwant

There is also a collection of gold-plated pieces that are sleek, polished and sophisticated.

 Summertime and the living is easy!

I loving this beautiful weather we’re having.  I trying to soak up every minute of these low humidity days because I know that in no time flat it will be hot, humid and sticky outside.  A couple of weeks ago I purged my closet and organized it for the warmer months.  I’ve also been doing the same with my decor.  After all the organizing was done I made a shopping list for a few new things I needed wanted to help me usher in summer.

Summer Must Haves-2016.001

If you know me, you know I love colorful earrings, especially during the summer.  I’ve got my eyes on these Baha Drop Earrings which happen to have two of my favorite summer colors in them–turquoise and orange.  
I’ve had this book, It’s Not How Good You Are on my reading list for a while now and just picked it up to take on the cruise we have planned later this summer.  I always enjoy inspirational reads when we travel because my mind is more relaxed and I can really absorb the content.  
My favorite candle scent of all times is gardenia and this Gardenia Scented Candle is what I’m burning right now in my office.  I wish you could scratch your screen and enjoy this amazing scenes with me.
I’ve never met a handbag I didn’t like and this Boho Clutch is not only colorful and cute, it’s only $9.99!  The perfect piece for a weekend or to throw in a larger summer tote like the one below.
Target has some really, really fabulous tote bags right now and this classic Straw Tote with Tassel is perfect of all my summer activities.  Available in 4 colors.
I spotted this Acrylic Monogram Bracelet  when I was shopping for earrings and think it’s perfect for my summer wardrobe.
I started wearing readers a few years ago and have been on the hunt for reader sunglasses.  My favorite reading eyewear company, Peepers has a great selection of sunglasses and great prices and these tortoise Reader Sunglasses are my fave.
I already own 3 pair of Converse sneakers and just ordered these adorable Converse Crochet Sneakers.  They’re also available in navy.
I think I found the perfect dessert spoons for summer,  Floral Dessert Spoons  from One Kings Lane.
I rarely shop at Old Navy but popped in over the Memorial Day weekend because they were having a great sale.  I bought these Stripped Linen Pants ($20) which just scream summer to me.  Also available in a cropped length which would be really cute with your crocheted sneakers.

Two thumbs up for the weekend!

Now that we’ve sprung forward and the first official day of spring is just days away, I feel like its time to make the switch in my closet from my winter wardrobe to my spring wardrobe.  It’s also time to take stock of what I own and head out to buy a few new fashion pieces.  On my shopping list this spring are boho inspired looks.  Boho style is a lot like my design style–eclectic, whimsical and full of personality so it’s no wonder I like this look.

 Here are a few pieces I’ve spotted while shopping the web.

Statement Necklace Styling

via

I, like most women have a thing for jewelry. My particular crush is on bold statement pieces that have lots of personality and wow.

During the cold winter months, statement necklaces are a great way to accessorize layered clothing and bulkier pieces like a sweater or blazer.  A statement necklace can add instant impact to any outfit, causal or dressy.

Here’s a round-up of a few statement necklaces I just discovered and styling tips on how to wear them.

How To Style A Statement Necklace

♦  The chunkier the clothing, the chunkier the necklace–make sure your necklace can hold its own against the texture and visual weight of  your sweater or jacket.

♦  Mix it up–don’t be afraid to wear multiple necklaces together to create your own signatures statement style.

♦  Go for the hi-low mix–a statement necklace can work just as well with a causal sweater and jeans as it can with a cashmere cardigan and tailored slacks.

♦  Layer with necklaces–wear statement necklaces to fill in an open neckline on a v-neck sweater or button up shirt.

♦ Statement necklace and collared shirts are a great combo–wear choker or shorter length necklaces under a collared shirt to create polished look.  Statement necklaces look great with turtlenecks too!
