Charleston Eats & Arm Party Treats

I hope everyone had a fabulous and festive Fourth! I know we did, I spent an extra long weekend in Charleston. I love everything about Charleston, the houses are so adorable, it’s on the coast, and the food is out of this world. The first day we were there we walked around downtown. Exploring Rainbow Row, shopping in the market, and eating everything in sight.

I basically live in my denim cut offs this summer. They are so easy to dress up or down and always are comfortable. I made these last year when it was harder to find high waist blue jean shorts, but now you can luckily find a pair almost anywhere pretty cheap. I paired the shorts with this super adorb flowy crop from Urban Outfitters. The top is fun by itself but is also so easy to pair with adorable jewelry.

Lately I’ve really been obsessed with layering and stacking. In the past I have had trouble finding jewelry that works well together, but then I stumbled upon these three ladies.. Shop Emma Joy, Accessory Jane, & Kristalize. Alone each of their pieces are gorgeous, but together they make the ultimate collection. I’m talking about creating the arm party of the century. Like Vegas party arm party. You can’t go wrong with any pieces you choose to mix and match. Good luck deciding which ones to buy, it’s the worst part. Trust me you’ll want them all.

Tips on the ultimate arm party:
Pick a statement piece.
Start with the biggest, most noticeable piece & work backwards. 
Mine is usually my watch.
Choose 2-3 bead or colorful braceletts.
Coordinating with your statement piece, 
look for fun & colorful bracelets to thicken up your stack. 
For this stack I picked my two Kristalize stretch bracelets &
 a wrap bracelet filled with tiny blue beads.
Thin Neutrals.
Add gold or silver thin bangles. 
My favorites are Alex & Ani, their little charms are so adorable!
I also add some plain gold bangles in my stack, 
as well as a larger one closer to my elbow.
Necklaces + Rings.
Don’t let your arm have all the fun
Add a bold necklace or 2 delicate necklaces, depending on your outfit.
Pick a statement ring, followed by some thin rings & midi rings.
Make sure to touch up your mani & you’re good to go. 

Styling and re-styling your arm party is fun, IT’S A PARTY! Even if it doesn’t feel right at first, just keep trying. Everyday you can adjust your stack for your mood.
