Making A Statement

Making a statement in the fashion world is a breeze, thanks to fun, colorful, and elaborate jewelry. And for me over the past month, my lovely boot cast treating my broken ankle can also cause heads to turn, but that’s a whole different story.  Back to the jewelry, I have been no stranger to the whole statement necklace trend and have always found myself finishing up a simple look by adding an ornate necklace.  But lately statement necklaces have not just been in the spotlight, but so has statement earrings.  The statement earring trend started in the winter, continued into the spring and the summer and I have a feeling we will be seeing this trend transitioning into the autumn months. With my short hair, I always like to play around with funky earrings and today’s look emphasizes the idea that a pair of earrings can totally transform a look.

Since, this look focuses on my earrings, it’s only natural I start with my earrings.  Like I mentioned in my previous post, Etsy is the best place to shop for unique clothing pieces and accessories.  On one of my recent searches, I came across the store Kay and Star, owned by mother- daughter duo, Jordan and Julie.  These stylish shop owners stock their online store with the most colorful and extravagant jewelry pieces.  Immediately, when I saw these orange ombré tassel earrings, I knew they would make a statement.  These earrings certainly add a summer vibe to my look.

When the sun is out, the shoulders come out too.  The off the shoulder trend is not stopping anytime soon, so there is no better time to wear an off the shoulder dress than on a sunny, hot summer day. My chambray and denim colored dress is from Target.  Although, it appears simple, the ruffle detail and the off the shoulder look gives this dress a little something extra.

Speaking of a sunny, summer day, I had to throw on my favorite shades, which happen to be these brown, round sunglasses by London Fog.  I really like the small frame and the way they shape my face.

There is nothing more frustrating than having a broken ankle and only being able to wear one shoe, so for the sake of this post I decided to model my boot solo and hold up the sandals I would wear with this outfit.  What can I say?  I’m trying to be a fashion blogger while making the best out of an unfortunate situation.  So when this lovely boot comes off for good, which I hope is very soon because it’s been a month already, I plan to wear this pair of black, strappy sandals from Target.

Whenever I am figuring out my outfits, my goal is to always make a statement.  Fashion is not supposed to be boring.  So next time you find a crazy, colorful, statement worthy piece, don’t be afraid to buy it and wear it with confidence. See you all in my next post.

    ope your leg heals soon. So sorry you have it broken. I like the idea of posing without shoes – it definitely looks better than just one leg. In fact at first I though your leg bracer was some sort of shoe.
    Creative accessories are so fun and totally work like a wand. I like keeping couple in my purse if have to switch places so my outfit feels different.
