Style It: Blogger Edition


Our Style It series this week features two amazing Chicago bloggers: Blair from The Fox & She  and Christine from The View from 5 ft.  2. Both of these fabulous ladies will be sharing how they style our Pastel Pink Chandelier Necklace and a couple of things you may not know about them by just reading their blogs. Check it out below!


Untitled-1We can’t get enough of Blair’s white-hot look!  The all-white trend is on-point for Summer and made the blush pink and bold crystals from the necklace really pop. We also love the little addition of her own necklace paired with the statement style.


T+J: Who’s your style icon and why?
B: Olivia Palermo and Blake Livley – they both make looking stylish so effortless and make it their own.
T+J: As a child you would describe yourself in these three words? How would you describe yourself now in 3 words?
B: As a child: Shy, Athletic (trampolines to tree-climbing to soccer), sensitive // As an adult: Creative, Adventurous & (still) Sensitive
T+J: What would you recommend someone do as a first time visitor to Chicago?
B: If it’s summer, definitely check out one of the many neighborhood street festivals and grab a drink at Hancock’s Signature Lounge
T+J: If you were given $10,000 today and you had to spend it one day, what would you do with it?
B: Book a big trip — probably to European countries we love and some that are on our wish list.

How amazing is Christine’s look? We love the idea of a shift dress & statement necklace (with bag & lip color to match!) as a Summer night-out look. The matte coating on this necklace gives great texture and interest to the modern print on the dress.


T+J: Who’s your style icon and why?
C: I’d go with Miroslava Duma because she’s also a petite like myself, and her style is killer. She wears classic pieces and is creative and inspires my style!
T+J: As a child you would describe yourself in these three words? How would you describe yourself now in 3 words?
C: Curious, obedient, and energetic. I’d probably say adventurous, trustworthy and loyal now!

T+J: What would you recommend someone do as a first time visitor to Chicago?

C: Oh man, to spend as much time as they can here! You have to try a Portillo’s hot dog, have drinks on a rooftop or at the Hancock, and see the city from the lake on a boat ride. I’d also say to check out restaurants on Randolph Street and explore the different neighborhoods in the city and not just what’s up and down Michigan Avenue. There’s so much culture and excitement in each different area!
T+J: If you were given $10,000 today and you had to spend it one day, what would you do with it?
C: I’d book a last minute trip with friends on the spot and spend every penny exploring a new city with some of my closest friends!  ​

We love how Blair styled it with summer whites.  Our necklace is perfect with a white tee or tank such as Blair’s for day and a pretty shift dress such as Christine’s for night.  This stunning pastel necklace is the perfect summer piece.
Special thanks to these girls for sharing their fabulous style!
