Statement Pieces with the India Hicks Style Collection


Shop: Cross-body | Clutch | Tote | Necklace (one, two) | Bracelet (one, two) | Backpack |
                                                              Earrings (one, two)
Everyone needs a couple staples in their accessories drawer and closet. Things that you can wear everyday and things that you can wear on a special occasion. The India Hicks Lifestyle Collection has all of that, this is the main reason I became a India Hicks Style Ambassador. A couple staples you need are the perfect cross-body for everyday (I love this one here), a tote to carry work files and your computer, and then a clutch when go out at night.

What other statement pieces do you need, you ask? Well jewelry, that is! An awesome everyday statement is the legacy letter necklace ( I linked the “A” here, obviously for Absolutely Alli, but there are many other letters to choose from in gold and sliver). A necklace with a little more flair is this Free Spirt, it definitely will make a statement. If you are like me you always have on earrings when you leave the house, I like these studs for everyday and these to be a little more dressed up.

I always like a little arm candy to dress up my outfits. I am really into gold jewelry lately so this cuff is to die for, but if you are more into leather this one is for you. If you want to be a little bit more understated then the hook bracelet is what you are looking for.

Cheeky

Shop: Jacket | Dress | Necklace (one, two) | Handbag | Booties | Lipstick | Watch

I am always a bit cheeky! Isn’t everybody? Well in this outfit I feel like I can get away with it! I love dress and bootie season. And since this week started to feel like fall this outfit was perfect to showcase. I styled a brightly colored dress with black suede booties, a two toned fitted jacket, and a exaggerated statement necklace. All the textures and colors mixed together is what made me fall in love with fashion and personal style. I finished the look with a cross-body with gold trim and a red lip. This is probably my favorite fall look thus far and I feel like I can wear it anywhere.

Casual Fall Look

Shop: Pants | Shirt | Sweater | Tote | Necklace (one, two) | Shoes | Sunnies | Watch | Earrings | Bracelet

There comes a time in life when you are so busy that you have to find outfits that carry you through the day. This outfit here is one of those. I go straight from work to meetings and sometime after that to social function, so this means I have to be prepared to look the part. I do this by wearing layers. Adding a cardigan to an outfit makes it perfect for work. As the day progresses you can lose the sweater which gives your outfit a whole new look. Also wearing a shoe that is appropriate for work as well as cute enough for social outings is key. Since it is bootie season I opted for a open toe bootie, which is comfy but stylish.

Ponding the Moments

Shop: Dress | Booties | Necklace (one, two) | Earrings | Clutch | Belt | Watch

Sometimes you just have to stop and take it all in. We are all too busy and never really have time to enjoy life and the people who are in it. Everyone should just take a minute, sit down and take in their surroundings. Like I am doing here, people watching and pondering the moment.

While doing this. There is no need for you not to look your best! I am loving this dress and matching jacket, which I got from the Chris Yates Shop in Mount Eliza, Victoria, Australia. If you are ever in Melbourne you should definitely head to Mt. Eliza and visit the Chris Yates Shop. I paired this outfit with bright suede booties to give it a pop of color. I accessorized it with a leopard belt, gold jewelry and my favorite tassel clutch.

This outfit is great for day and night. Wear it to work with the jacket during the day, then shed it at night to go out with the girls for a glass of wine. Whatever you have going on or if you are just pondering the moments this outfit is perfect. Shop it below.

Leopard & Denim

Happy Friday! What’s on your weekend agenda? I hope something fun. Mine?  Playing catch up as usual. But I won’t let a busy weekend cause me not to be stylish. And you shouldn’t either!  It is easy to plan out an outfit that can carry you though the weekend. Like this one I styled below. 
Take a simple pair of skinny jeans that almost everyone has in their wardrobe, pair it with a shirt that has a patterned or flattering design to give it some flair. I love this leopard print button down from the IHXDay curated collection (found here). It is a staple in my closet, because like I always say leopard is a neutral and can go with almost any solid color. 
I accessorized with a black cross body that had gold accents, a pair of hoop earrings and basic black heels. This outfit is simple and easy to create. It can take you from day to night throughout the weekend. During the day throw on some flats to run errands or go to a game. At night rock the heels for date night or girls night out.
What is your favorite pattern? Obviously mine is leopard! Shop this outfit below.
