Eleven Pieces That Will Add Sparkle to Your Closet

I am going to get straight to the point of this post - I am someone who does not like to hold off until Christmas and New Year's Eve to wear my fun, sparkly clothes. Actually let me dig deeper; I don't let holidays dictate what I wear and when I can wear it. Never. Ever.  

We are currently in the season of everything bright, sequin, metallic and gold, and I love it so much! It is my favorite time of the year. But I also find it equally fun and inspiring to incorporate any sort of sparkle into my looks at any given time. And with winter slowly creeping in, the wardrobe rotation can turn monotonous pretty fast. 

The pieces selected below know how to make a statement very well, all on their own.  You could dress them up or dress them down; and because these items have a particular timeless appeal, you most likely won't be bored with any one of them. 

Cheers to great style all year long!

Experiencing PVD Fest 2017 in Style

Last Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity to share my experience of the PVD Festival on The Dean Hotel's Instagram, along with talented creatives. 

The photos (below) were taken by my best friend and photographer Brittanny Taylor, in The Dean Hotel's lot, where locals and visitors got to enjoy sounds of music, art installations by Kelly C. Knapp, pop-up shops by local sellers and designers such as Wanderluxe, and most importantly food + drinks stations! 

To celebrate the festivities, I wore this gorgeous kimono from The Vault Collective RI, over a pair of white jeans from Calico and a black bodysuit, with earrings from Queen of Hearts & Modern Love

I wanted my look to feel vibrant and cool without losing the comfort factor and this look did that and so much more. It added sweet movement to my very tight/skinny jeans, and not only did I end up walking a lot that day, I also danced all night long. 

Our City of Providence is such a gem! It was a true privilege to take part in the experience through the Dean Hotel's platform. Without wanting to rush time or anything, I am really looking forward to PVD Fest 2018 and to meeting old and new friends, neighbors and strangers who all make this gigantic event extra special.

Bloggers Collabo: Styling Holly Vine of Holly Likes to Cook

Back in June I had the opportunity to collaborate with Food + Lifestyle blogger, Holly Vine, for a Maternity style post over at Holly Likes to Cook.

Holly and I met at an event hosted by The PVD Lady Project last year and we've been friends since. So when she presented the idea of chatting maternity style on her blog back in the spring and incorporating a photo shoot with friend and photographer, Brittanny Taylor, of course I was going to say Yes. 

It was a lot of fun talking easy, breezy outfits for a summer pregnancy with her. I invite you to check out the blog post here, and if you enjoy making delicious dishes at home and doing chic DIY home projects, definitely subscribe to her newsletter. 

Or if, like me, you have the tendency to melt over adorable photos of babies, I not only invite you, but I urge you to follow her on Instagram. Holly and her husband welcomed two beautiful twin boys last month. Seriously - adorability galore!
