{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Body Bling

Today’s trend: body bling, aka body jewelry, aka if you follow Rihanna on Instagram then you know I’m talking about.

Rihanna rocked a whole lot of body bling and posted lots of pics to prove it, donning a bikini outfit including a body chain at the Crop Over Festival in Barbados.

 Speaking of body chains, or body necklaces (both names work), it’s a long necklace that drapes over the front and back of the body. They look sexy with a swimsuit or even under clothes, so give a peek-a-boo accessorizing, Beyoncé and Jennifer Aniston have both been seen sporting body chains.

Vanessa Hudgens, she’s even worn a thigh necklace in the past. Another style setter rocking unique body jewelry is Zoe Kravitz, who has been spotted wearing shin chains. Clearly there are lots of ways to wear bling on your body.

This trend is easier shopped online, as I learned a few weeks ago hunting for body bling for a TV segment. I found a some cool thigh chains and other body bling on Etsy, all handmade and unique.

{ Dare To Wear } Vested Summer Style

Well hello August. This new month totally snuck up on me. Before we move on to new outfit post for this new month let’s recap July’s featured fashions. Sound good? Cool!

Like past Dare To Wear posts, items were worn on repeat (because don’t we all rewear our stuff?), but unlike other months, there were actually three pieces that made it into all three looks.

Why? Because it felt right. Do what feels right. Right? Right!

Okay, so can you spot which three pieces were in all three looks? Scroll on. Full blog posts with outfit details and style tips are linked below. Hope you like. If you’re inspired pin these pics to and use it as future outfit inspiration.

Tis the season for bright colors. I can’t believe we’re already about halfway through summer (bummer!). So I’m making sure to wear my warm-weather finds from this season as well as favorites from year’s past, all while making time to enjoy the nice weather. Even if it’s just for a coffee run, (or in my case, Iced Chai Tea Latte — so addicting!) it’s nice to just get outside and feel the sun on your skin. A bright hue can also brighten your mood, I know it does for me.

{ Style Tips }

1. Balance your body in a flowing outfit by adding a vest.  It will bring things in and keep your billowy pieces from overwhelming your frame.

2. A little color goes a long way.  This outfit may feel bright, and that’s thanks to the top, turquoise bangle, and blue nails. Don’t be afraid to wear more than one bright hue.

3. Skip the heavy blush and wear a pink top to brighten you up. It has a way of  complementing the complection.

{ Five Things Wellness } Iced Tea Cocktails To Cool You Down

Okay, I know I can’t complain much, but this July heat is absolutely unbearable. I’ve been really excited for these warmer months and now that they’re here, it’s getting a little too much.

Do you feel the same way? Here are { Five Things Wellness } to help you cool down, unwind, and beat the heat.
