Chambray and Bangles

CO-OP Barneys booties, Aqua dress (last seen here), Gap chambray shirt & belt, Kenneth Cole Clutch, Raine Studios Bangle, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Forever 21 ring & necklace, Michael Kors watch





My new bangle!
via
I won this gorgeous bangle bracelet from Inspired a few weeks ago and have since lusted after every single bangle on Amy's etsy shop (especially the thick copper hammered bangle). I've been wearing the bangle with everything and it's become one of my favorite accessories. These pictures were taken before dinner with friends last week. I've been using my chambray shirt as a thin jacket on cool evenings and belting it over dresses and skirts to bring new life to my summer clothes.

The necklace and bangle really make your outfit look nice. Don't you LOVE winning contests??

It alerts you to new products that you may not know of/purchase otherwise and it's just a nice unexpected surprise:). I've been fortunate to win a vase from Pottery Barn and a package of thank you cards that I love!! Hope your weekend was nice; from your post yesterday, it sounds like it was.
