Punch of Pow


Embellished pieces add a fun punch of  "pow" to any outfit. To keep from looking "blinged" out, I typically only wear one item that has stud, bead or rhinestone detailing, but I couldn't help myself by pairing this top with my studded sandals. I feel like the two were meant to be worn together.

Studded Sandals
Chicwish Embellished Top c/o (love this and this too) // The Limited Black Shorts (option here and here) // Forever 21 Studded Sandals (option here and here) // Gold Clutch (option here and here) // Nordstrom Leather Wrap c/o (option here and here) // Wrenn Jewelry Rings c/o // Costa Del Mar Sunglasses (option here) // Target Earrings (option here

Unfortunately both the top and sandals are sold out, BUT if you want to add either item to your closet, keep a close eye out on Forever 21 and Chicwish. Both sites are pretty good about restocking items that sell out fast.

In the meantime, I did find a few alternative options in case you are interested.




P.S. You guys, we have been so busy this summer with camps, traveling, family time and NBA playoffs (GO SPURS!!). I promise to be more active with my post content, blog reading and social media interaction once the summer months are over. Consider the next few weeks summer style inspiration from me to you. I am really trying to enjoy this time with my girls, traveling on the weekends, day time excursions and to not stress myself out because I am not in front of the computer like I am when they are in school. Hang in there with me as I am trying to hang on as well! If only I could magically create 8 more hours in a day during June-August. xoxo

Good for you for taking time to be with your family. I always struggle between how much time I spend on the blog, commenting, reading, preparing and my son. I try only to blog when he sleeps but it is never enough. Love this outfit, really the combination of graphic black and white with gold accents is stunning....I hope it served you well on your summer adventures!

Love your outfit, you look adorable! I agree with you, I usually only wear one statement piece per outfit, but this shirt just calls for more! Everything works perfectly together. Well done!

This outfit is so fantastic! I love it and it is totally you!

I feel like I could totally write this post as I have been feeling the same way. I am not taking extra projects and things will be in slo-mo around here with summer going on. This week is way less busy than the last and I love it. It is SO needed. ENJOY!!!

P.S. I'm now obsessed with ChicWish so thank you. Ha. :)

Definitely not too much bling! Perfect amount if you ask me. Love those earrings!

Darcy said...

I LOVE this! Those shoes.... I need them. F21, really?! I need to go check them out. Also, don't feel bad about not being as active during summer months. Life is more important that our world on the internet! I am actually announcing tomorrow a new summer schedule, and I will only be posting 4 days a week. I want to spend my summer months with my friends, enjoying the weather. I don't want to have to turn down plans or be stressed out about making time for blogging!

The top and sandals are definitely meant to go together! A match made in heaven :) I hope you're enjoying the time with your girls! My moms coming to visit me for a few days at the end of the month and I plan on not doing too much blogging while she's here so I can enjoy my time with her :) My mom's a teacher and gets the summers off. My sister and I always loved out summer time with her when we were growing up and I'm sure your girls are loving their time with you too :)

I think since your shorts are unadorned that they make a visual barrier between the bling of your top and shoes, so they are just fine together!
