Would you love getting sparkly jewelry delivered to your doorstep? Yep, thought so! If you haven’t already, it’s time for you to check out Rocksbox! (Use the code chelseabff5 to get your first month free!!)

I’ve had a subscription to Rocksbox for quite a while now. Not every box I’ve gotten has been perfect for me, but I’ve had a lot of fun trying out new designers and styles that are different than what I normally gravitate toward. But May’s Rocksbox was different. I was seriously in love with every single piece! They each were so versatile yet packed so much personality! Before I dig into the deets, here’s what Rocksbox is all about…

 How it works:

1. BECOME A SHINE INSIDER ($19/month)- Take the style survey and add items to your jewelry Wish List.

2. GET 3 PIECES TO WEAR ON LOAN- Each piece is hand-selected for you based on your style and specific requests. Wear your pieces as much as you want!

3. RETURN ANYTIME TO GET 3 NEW PIECES- Return your Rocksbox pieces anytime and as often as you like. Every set has 3 pieces of designer jewelry, worth an average of $200 per set.

May Rocksbox Review 2015

Perry Street Isla Necklace

Perry Street Isla Necklace (retails at $64, member price is $51)– When I opened this month’s box I was in awe by this hot pink necklace. It has a simple design, but the color makes it bold and fun. It adds a ton of personality to any outfit and can hold its own with the ultra girly looks in your closet or even glam up your casual jeans and white tee. It’s the perfect mix between a statement necklace and dainty look, you definitely get your bang for your buck with this guy!

Loren Hope Palmer Necklace in SeafoamLoren Hope Palmer Necklace in Seafoam (retails at $118, member price is $94)- Although this necklace didn’t “wow” me initially, I found myself gravitating to it every morning. You wouldn’t think this mint hue would go with much in your closet, but somehow it complimented nearly everything I wore. I especially loved the longer length of the chain, making it easy to layer with different necklaces and necklines. It was by far my favorite piece this month!

Perry Street Elise EarringsPerry Street Elise Earrings (retails at $38, member price is $30)- I love these studs! The size of them is perfect. They are big enough to make a bold statement, but light enough that I don’t even notice the weight of them after a long day. The antique gold and rhinestone look makes these earrings so versatile. I ended up wearing them with gold, silver and even by themselves and got a ton of mileage out of them. They become my go-to studs for weeks!



I mean how amazing was that box? Are you like me and can’t get enough of Rocksbox? Try checking out last month’s set of jewelry, April RocksBox Review.

Top Summer Shoe Trends | 2015

Get excited girls, my ultimate guide to summer shoe trends is here! This summer is all about fringe, lace-up ankle straps, espadrilles, metallics and more!

I pulled together some fabulous (and super budget friendly) options that fall into each of summer’s top four trends! A few of my favorites are Old Navy’s Tie Gladiators, Target’s Embellished Footbeds, Forever 21’s Crochet Espadrilles and H&M’s Floral Platforms. As you are shopping, you will probably notice a lot of the styles fall into more than one trend, covering all your bases! (crochet + espadrilles = dreamy!) And the best part of all is the price tags on these picks! They are all priced under $45- now that’s a trend I can get behind! Happy shopping and share your favorites in the comments below!

Spring Shoe Trends | 2015

I’m back! Sorry for my unexpected hiatus! I’ve been under the weather and traveling for the past few weeks and I’m finally back home and healthy (almost)!

Anyways, today is all about spring shoe trends. We are well into February and it’s about this time of year that I start to get antsy for spring! I am dying to go get a fresh pedicure and prance around town in some new, fun, spring forward shoes!

This year I’m gravitating toward metallics, bright prints and detailed neutrals. What are my absolute must haves for spring?

  1. Espadrilles- go for an easy neutral pair or a wild printed pair! (or both!!)
  2. Embellished Sandals- these glitter and rhinestone sandals from Target are completely necessary!
  3. Fun Heels- either iridescent or fringed, there’s no going wrong here!

Take a look at what I’m shopping for below and leave a comment with your must have shoe choices!

Sparkle in Plaid

Today is all about dolling up the rugged plaid trend. Just because a lumberjack wears plaid to chop down a tree doesn’t mean we can’t sparkle in it! I see a lot of girls sporting the plaid trend, but it’s almost always paired back to sneakers and a ponytail. Don’t get me wrong, that’s an adorable casual look, but there’s no reason you can’t dress up that same plaid shirt!

Sparkle in Plaid 2

I got this great plaid flannel from Old Navy and absolutely love the versatility! To go for a more glam look, I opted for metallic accessories, my current Rocksbox jewelry and a bright pink lip! Take a closer look at my accessories below and share how you dress up your plaid in the comments!

Holiday Jackets | 2014

It’s that time of year, holiday events and parties seem to be sprinkling everyone’s calendars these days. Holiday dressing can be a ton of fun, but it can also be a little tricky. So many holiday trends come in the form of tiny dresses and tank tops so it’s important to find the perfect layer to keep you warm on those wintery nights!

To help a sister out this year, I pulled together some of my favorite holiday jackets, all under $100! Some are dressy, some are comfy, but they are all adorable! As you can see, most include faux fur and sequins- just a couple of my favorite things! Share your favorite in the comments below and stay warm <3!

Fall Flats | Oxford Chic

I am fully embracing the flat trend this fall. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my heels, but some mornings it’s just a little easier to walk to work in flats.

One of my favorite flat trends right now is taken right from the men’s department, lace-up oxfords! But these flats are anything but manly- pastel, leopard, polka dots and sparkles are just a few ways to add a feminine touch to oxfords. I think the metallic pairs are a ton of fun, I snagged these Naya Tahlia Metallic Oxfords from Hautelook a few months ago and have been getting a ton of milage out of them, check them out in my Mint Tweed post!

Below, I pulled together some of my favorite fun oxfords for fall. I am obsessed with both the leopard pair and the gold striped pair!

Mint Tweed

mint tweed 1This past week, I decided to go for a more polished look with this mint green tweed jacket. I kept it easy by pairing it back with simple timeless pieces like a black tee and my selvedge Levi’s. My favorite part of the outfit is the Naya Tahlia Metallic Oxfords. I got a great deal on these from Hautelook! They are definite statement shoes and are actually super comfortable! Although I was going for a menswear inspired look, I wanted to spice it up with all these metallic accessories to give a fresh, feminine look.
