Summer Soirée

Summer Soiree - 8It’s not summer without my favorite arm soirée making an appearance! I pretty much wear these bracelets (and shoes) almost every day. I just love the bright colors and this Zara dress has been my definition of summer as well. I can’t believe my summer break is almost over 🙁 but this just means I need to savor every moment. I’m going to miss the beautiful weather and the freedom to do whatever I want during week days – that in itself is quite the soirée. On that note, it’s time to leave my apartment and go outside and have myself a little party 😉

Military Chic

Military Chic - 1I’m happy the weather cooperated this weekend and I got to wear my new fabulous lightweight coat that was seriously made for me and is sooo military chic. First of all, it has the letter P on it and all the patches pretty much sum up my life. Sometimes I think I’m really twelve years old by the things that I find amusing. Who doesn’t want a coat with a dinosaur, flamingo, star, lightning bolt and other random things on it?! Oh yeah, and the not-so-secret lipstick patch on the back 😉 Have a great week!

I’ve been requested to write a post about how to create the perfect arm soirée for quite some time now and I finally got around to it (you’re welcome DNB)! I have perfected this art form in just three easy steps.

  • Step 1: wear bangles or loose bracelets.
  • Step 2: wear a stretchy or chunky bracelet to help block the bangles or loose bracelets from falling out of place.
  • Step 3: wear your favorite time piece to keep the party in line.

I like to mix up my metals and plastics and I usually keep some of the same bracelets in constant rotation. The same goes with my time pieces. It’s important to either have a gold, silver or black band time piece because it is a statement just in itself and never goes out of style. I’m looking to add a gray and burgundy time piece this season to my collection just because I have a slight obsession with them (especially Timex). Again, leather, metal or plastic bands for time pieces are based on preferences.

For step 1, I get my bangles in packs at Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 because they’re reasonably priced and they usually have a wide variety of choices. Then for step 2, I like wearing a designer thicker bracelet – I usually invest in these because I can always wear them solo as well. These I like to stalk my favorite sites for just that right piece to add to my collection. Nordstrom, Piperlime and Yoox have great selections. Modcloth and Anthropologie have some unique pieces that are great for mixing and matching.

The last unique tidbit to the perfect arm soirée is that I tend to only wear them on my right hand, even though I’m right handed. I have no idea how I started wearing them only on my right hand, but I like it this way because the focus is isolated and unique.

Remember, each soirée should be unique and express your personal style and have fun with different combinations.
