Celebrate Warm Layers

Short on time? Short on motivation? Throw a little self-care into your style choices.

When was the last time you took a moment for yourself? When you’re constantly on the go for your kids or your business or your day job, it’s easy to be so wrapped up in life, you lose sight of your joy. People rely on you, dreams need to be nourished, bills need to be paid. Your needs just aren’t a priority right now. I get it, babe, I really do.

Here’s the thing, though. The only way you can provide for your kids or your dreams or your job is if you make sure to provide for yourself first. You can’t give something you don’t have. And the only one who can take care of you the way you need to be taken care of while you’re constantly on the go is YOU.

Tap into some warm layers so you can feel (and share) joy more freely. Layer a puffy vest over your plaid shirt. Throw a cardigan over your favorite t-shirt. Wear a big blanket scarf with just about everything. Better yet, wear two big blanket scarves with just about everything.

Putting yourself first when making style choices is an easy yet empowering form of self-care. You can make any outfit YOURS simply by choosing things you want to wear because you want to wear them. When you put yourself first in this way, it’s fulfilling and authentic and a heck of a lot more joyful to take care of all the things.

Take Your Turquoise into Fall

Living Life Creatively, StyleCait SherrickComment

The color turquoise typically reminds us of clear blue waters, tan lines and warm nights.  Because of these beachy associations, it’s easy to think you should only wear your turquoise jewelry in the summer. While I love accessorizing a good summer outfit with turquoise, I also love to keep wearing turquoise well into the cooler seasons. Its aqua color pairs beautifully with the deeper red and gold tones of fall, and its organic shape adds an earthy, boho edge to any cool weather look.  Here are three ways to style turquoise necklaces with your fall outfits in a way that feels modern, feminine and effortlessly chic.


1 // STRIPED BASICS

Break up the stripes on a turtleneck tee (or any striped tee!) with a long, layered piece. The turquoise pops next to any neutral color, and the organic shape stands out nicely on top of stripes. 

2 // PLAID CHIC

Elevate an everyday plaid button down with a statement piece. Wearing a statement necklace with a plaid shirt is unexpected, and the turquoise color pairs well with the warmer colors of fall. 

3 // SWEATER WEATHER

Add personality to a simple sweater with a long, layered piece.  The turquoise adds a subtle break in color, and the necklace freshens up a basic sweater.
