Today's Everyday Fashion: Arts and Crafts

I like to call this my "arts and crafts" necklace set. I'm loving the combination so much, I will be repeating it many times this summer with other outfits. I think it is also the name of a trend, and it reminds me of the friendship bracelets that are coming back into style full-force. This necklace is mostly made of cloth, with electric blue rhinestones. It totally looks like something you would make during arts and crafts, and makes me feel like I'm at summer camp all over again! (happy sigh)

My take: I really try not to play favorites with my outfits, but this might be my favorite! (at least for the time being) It's rare when I find an outfit, with flats, that I can wear in the 100 degree heat and still be stylish! How do you stay stylish in the summer heat? Are you a fan of the "arts and crafts" trend?

  1. I think this outfit is super cute. I'm loving the necklaces especially.

    OH and I totally understand the whole problem with trying to dress cute while its ridiculously hot out. I usually just default to shorts, but i think I need to switch things up.

    hope you have a great day :)


  2. I really love this fun look. It reminds me of something that's very "kid" friendly with all the colors!

  3. I think this is one of my favorite outfits yet! I'm a young busy mom on the go, so I love outfits with flat shoes, yet still stylish and easy to chase a 2 year old in! Thank you!

  4. I love this J!  You did so well with your inspiration, which is in turn inspiring me to do an outfit with different shades of the same color!!! Haha, and loving the necklaces!

  5. I love the all blue with the pop of color in that fun necklace - I love your arts & crafts accessory :)

    Gosh, I still have so much trouble trying to stay "fashionable" when its super hot out...I just end up wanting to wear a plain tank with the lightest-weight shorts I have. Boring! I have better luck in the winter.

  8. Skirts are def the way to go for the summer for me!

  9. The inspiration photo is Rachel Roy SS2011.  I love this look as well.
