STYLE + SIP: 3 Late Summer Pairings of Chic Scarves and Cool Cocktails

 You know I love to have at least one (or 4) of blog post round-up of a collection
one of my favorite treats: Summer Cocktails. This year is no exception, but
thought I'd have some fun and change it up a bit. So this year, as an homage
to the soon to come end of Summer, I've curated 3 sets of pairings: putting
some sweet Summer style together with cool and cooling cocktails, and
each set within a fitting travel destination. Do join us!

Style A Beautiful Summer Resort Look With Color and Accessories


You don't have to travel far to get yourself into gorgeous Resort look.
I'll show you how to use
accessories to create your own.
Here, I'm using tropical influenced pieces in soft
peachy pinks and beachy blues, for Summer style
with a chic resort look and relaxed feel.

Start with the star of this set,
the statement resort wrap scarf "Paradise-Ocean Palms"
in organic sateen, by Beau Monde Organics.

Then color coordinate your look; I've chosen pastel peach-pinks, 
like the orange-pink Kitten sun shades with rose-gold 
and the comfy-chic pink suede Hamptons espadrilles.
To make it work, I've added the contrast color of seaglass blue in
eco-jewelry accents, like these from earrings Natalie Frigo
and bracelet by Daisy Bead works, and topped it off with
a neutral colored straw widebrim sunshade hat.
Pull it all together with a natural bamboo Ark bag by Cult Gaia. 
Use these ideas for your outfit, and anywhere you go,
you'll be sure to feel beautiful, and leave memorable impressions.
