The Oversized Chambray Jacket

SimplyAudreeKate.SamKelly_DSC8923-1

Happy Monday my loves! I completely checked out for the weekend, and it felt great! I was getting over a really bad cold and decided lay low and drink copious amounts of tea and water. I even had a chance to read – I can honestly not remember the last time I sat in bed and just read for fun. But I’m feeling much better now and kicking off the day early with a new outfit post for you! I am planning some really fun changes and projects for the blog as well, and I can’t wait to share them with you in the next few weeks!

Today’s look is a super comfy and easy look for spring. I am wearing my new scuba striped dress from Dressbarn and I paired it with my new oversized chambray jacket and very Yeezy-inspired boots (currently on sale!) from Lulu’s! I finished the look with my favorite new necklace from 7 Charming Sisters! If you haven’t heard or shopped at 7 Charming Sisters before, I highly suggest that you check them out! It is a super fun jewelry company that is run by seven sisters, and there are seven different lines of jewelry – so no matter what your personal style is, you can find something perfect for you! My favorite pieces tend to always end up in “Jennifer Fashionista” category, naturally, but there are tons of pieces on their site that you have to check out! Do you remember my fun fringe necklace from last week (see here)? That’s from them too! Well, enjoy your Monday and I’ll see you back this week for more posts! xo

The Spring Print Mix

SimplyAudreeKate.SamKelly_DSC9585-1

Although it is currently freezing on the East Coast, my mind is on spring! I got this orange maxi dress in the fall (see post here) and I wanted to change it up for spring with some print mixing! I layered my J.Crew gingham button-up underneath the dress, added a denim jacket on top and finished off the look off with my new Urban Expressions floral clutch. I thought it was the perfect combination with the dress! I of course added a classic Audree touch with stacked necklaces (did you see yesterday’s post?) and new booties.

I absolutely love dresses and I am really excited to start wearing them again once the weather is a little warmer over here! I have so many in my closet from past seasons, and I am going to try and style them differently this season by adding layers, like today’s look, or something fun and different. Check back in tomorrow for my new Friday Favorites segment! xo

Wear It Wednesday: 6 Ways to Stack Necklaces

SimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.png

Happy Wear It Wednesday! If you have been following my blog for a hot minute, you have probably noticed by now that I wear a lot of jewelry. Earlier this year I wrote a story about my silver jewelry collection – read here – and today I wanted to talk about necklaces! I have been wear statement necklaces, or layering my necklaces for quite some time now, and I never really feel like an outfit is complete without one. I know stacking bracelets or cuffs is pretty common and a good handful of you probably do this, but for today’s Wear It Wednesday styling tutorial, I am sharing six different ways to spice up your jewelry box! You’ll see everything from my favorite and most worn stack called ‘The Audree’ to a simple way to layer your dainty necklaces. You can even shop some of these pieces in the links below. Happy necklace stacking! xo

1. The AudreeSimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.1

You know I love silver jewelry and vintage/western vibes – so I call this one “The Audree”. I have paired two of my newer favorite chokers with my go-to bib statement necklace. This combo can instantly elevate any tee or button-up and add a little rock n’roll punch.

2. The Updated Bolo Tie
SimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.2

Take your classic rope choker and tie around your neck three times and tie in the back of your neck. At the bottom of the chokers, tie a thicker ribbon or choker in a bow. You can tie off to the side for a Parisian feel, or keep in the front for an updated, feminine bolo tie.

3. The Choker StackSimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.5

A simple way to dress up a simple metal choker, is by staking two! I layered my two favorite vintage chokers and it instantly created a more dramatic and fashion-forward necklace. I love this look!

4. The Dainty StackSimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.4

Layering dainty necklaces has been a popular jewelry trend for a few years now, but I love taking this trend to the next level by mixing up the lengths in necklaces. I took a simple gold chain on top, added my ‘A’ necklace, a vintage lariat loop-through necklace and my new Y-necklace to top off the look. You can make this stack as dramatic or simple as your want and it will add interest to your outfit without overpowering the look in general.

5. The Pendant Stack

SimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.3

This is a fun combo for any jewelry aficionado! Layer a handful of statement pendant necklaces and it can really play up a simple outfit. Talk about a conversation starter!
{METAL NECKLACE – C/O LULU’S | TASSLE NECKLACE – C/O GOLD & GRAY}

5. The Party StackSimplyAudreeKate.WIW.Necklaces.6

I can just feel myself wearing this stack to a cocktail party or girls night out! Take a choker and pair it with a statement necklace – this is fairly similar to ‘The Audree,’ but the statement necklace is shorter and more colorful.  I love how playful this look is and pairs great with a LBD at night, or your denim duds for spring!
