{ summer jewels }


                                               
 

Hello friends!

Lately I have been loving all things sparkly and light! Summer in the south means making looks look glam without all the fuss and weight! This look would be perfect for dinner or an indoor party during the summer! This top from Old Navy reminds me alot of the bejeweled and beaded tops/sweaters that were in this past winter. I loved the look then but couldn't justify the cost vs. the amount of times I planned on wearing it! However, this top is one that I purchased in spring, have worn during the summer, and plan to wear this upcoming fall! It is super light and looks a bit more pricey than its actual cost of only $20 or so.
Thanks so much for reading!

Until next time..

{ chambray play }






First things first: this shirt is everything. No lie- not only is it comfy and stylish, it is super versatile and the perfect addition to any outfit. Chambray is obviously a piece that every girl should have in their closet! Its a piece that is going to get use not only during the summer but every season. Pair it with a skirt/shorts for right now, khaki skinnies and a blazer for fall, over leggings in the winter, and with floral/bright skinnies in the spring! Any way you pair it, it always looks classy. I have searched for the longest time to find the perfect chambray shirt and I have definitely found it. For a super reasonable cost and durable material this shirt is perfect for yearlong wear. 
Don't forget that you can get 15% of your entire purchase from Love Always Couture when you use the code "haileydailyxo"! I am beyond obsessed with the bar necklace and bracelet I have on above. The bar necklace is the perfect statement piece to every outfit, and the bracelet is dainty and great for everyday wear. 

Thanks so much for checking out todays post!
Until next time..

{ the tried and true: chambray shirt styles }

Well.. this post is definitely one that has probably been done by every single blogger out there, but does it hurt to do it one more time? I guess that means it is just something is worth talking about that many times, right?? Right! The chambray shirt is one that I loved for as long as I can remember. There is just something about a clean cut denim shirt styled to perfection. So, speaking of styling a chambray shirt, below I have put together 10 different ways/reasons why the chambray shirt is one that EVERYONE should have in their closet. If you checked out my previous post with Charles River Apparel you saw how I styled their Chambray Shirt.. and I must say that that is my absolute favorite way to style one now.. but scroll down below to check out nine other ways to style the one universal top!

1. Dressed Up for Work
I am absolutly loving both of these looks because I just started my job and was personally trying to figure out a suitable way to make chambray work in a business setting! The look on the right is perfect for summer while the look on the right I would probably save for fall!

2. The Maxi
I love that the looks above take the chambray from casual to playful with just one simple piece! Almost everyone today has a maxi skirt, whether it printed, pleated, or even a simple color the chambray shirt is the perfect way to add a little spunk to the traditional way its usually styled. 

 3. With a Lightweight Scarf
Blogger Emily Gemma of "The Sweetest Thing" obviously knows how to rock chambray. The look above is one that I have worn multiple times with a white fluffy scarf and white jeans. It's perfect for spring and summer (depending on where you live.. obviously not in the south) and is so simple it can be a go to outfit when you are questioning what to wear to a dinner or even to run errands!

4. With Bright Skinnies 
There is not much to say on the subject of bright skinnies and a chambray shirt but that they make the perfect match. For the chambray that I have (Charles River Apparel Chambray Shirt) I would probably pair it with green jeans because it is a little darker than the one above. That is definitely something to think about when wearing chambray with color- if the top is dark go with a more muted color rather than a bright one that you would pair with a light chambray. 

5. Denim on Denim
I was one who was against the denim on denim look for the longest time.. but I think that it was just something that grew on me. Pairing a chambray that is darker or lighter than the jean you plan on wearing is a great casual look that almost always looks good. It may feel a little strange at first just because it feels like you are pushing the denim too much, but sometimes when you put too great things together, it cant possibly go wrong!

6. With Black Skinnies 
If you are planning on wearing this look I would definitely recommend going with a lighter wash like the Charles River Apparel Light Wash Chambray Shirt. The wash will go better with the black jeans/pants rather than a dark wash that will clash!

7. With White Skinnies 
This look is most likely the easiest/most common way to style a chambray shirt, although it still remains one of my favorites!! Classic, fresh, and clean are the exact words I think of when white on denim comes to mind! Pair it with jacks for a casual look, or wedges or booties for a little dressed up look. Honestly, no matter if you throw on a necklace or just go basic with nude sandals this look is always a classic one to fall back on!

 8. With a Light Weight Sweater
I am absolutely in love with this look for spring/early fall (or if you can wear a sweater AND a chambray in summer.. go for it! where I'm from.. not so much). Any color would be cute over a chambray, but I am really loving the corally/pinkish cues like the ones above. They make the blue pop and blend great with white skinnies! 

 9. Dressed up with a skirt
I am loving a cute chambray shirt paired with a fun textured/patterned skirt! Lace looks great, as well as any pattern that works well with the wash of the shirt. There is not much I can say about
this look but that it is super cute and once again pretty easy to achieve!
 10. Casual Skirt 

I talked about this Charles River Apparel Chambray Shirt in my previous post but I just wanted to reiterate how great it is! Paired with my white linen skirt it makes such a statement. My look compared to the one on the right is a bit more casual, but it could be dressed up with the simple change of a shoe! 

I hope you enjoyed my post all about chambray shirts and how to style them!

Until next time..

{ tunic love }

 
                       

Hello Friends!

I have decided to try and post at least once a week on my blog! I feel like I have so much to say, and never enough time to put the true effort I would like to into my blog/instagram! I will try and do this so I can be consistent rather than posting once a month or two. So, having said that I will try to not only post "ootds" like the one above, but also looks or fun ways to save money when styling outfits! I also want to start making youtube videos! If you have any ideas on what you would like to see, comment below and I would love to talk about it/style it! 
  I  also have some exciting news to share with you all. I recently started my new job a local specialty shop (and let me tell you it is the bomb.com ... people still say that right?). This job is right up my alley, I finally get to work with merchandise hands on, and I get to see what the business world has to offer me! Also, on the subject of new embraces I am super excited to announce that I am now a Love Always Couture Brand Representative!!!! This means that I have the opportunity to offer all those who purchase of off lovealwaysbysyd.com 15% of their entire purchase using the code haileydailyxo! I am so thankful for this opportunity and look forward to where it will take me! 
Speaking on terms of the photos above, there is not much else that I can say but: I love tunics! If you follow my instagram you saw that I posted a picture of my vineyard vines tunic that I got last summer. I love tunics because they can be worn on the beach, to school, to work.. you get it, pretty much anywhere. Dress it up, dress it down, any way you style it- they always looks classy! I wore the one above with white slacks and Tory Burch flats for my first day of work, and it was a hit! No matter what, every time I wear it I get tons of compliments, its such a statement piece! Although the one above can be purchased at the Masters Tournament, I found some options that are listed below that are similar!






Until next time,

{ red white & blue x two }




The look above is one that I am absolutely in love with, it's a little bit of a more dressed up edge to my usual 'fourth of july' look. Not only is it cute, but it is surprisingly comfy! This outfit would be perfect for a more family like setting or dinner where a more dressed up look is expected. Because it is so hot where I live, this look would be temp-friendly for the evening, but if you live where it may be a little cooler, this look would look just as great with the tank untucked and with white jeans (seen below). With a pop of red, perhaps with a bag, shoes or earrings the outfit is taken for warm temps to a cool evening. 
                   
                                                                              Casual Look




The look above is one I've worn multiple times and is super simple/cute. The only thing I changed was throwing on the American Flag Aeoropostale Head Band to make it a little more suited for the Fourth! I would definitely wear this outfit to go watch fireworks or to an event outside! I hope that the outfits above helped you decide what you will be sporting on Friday :) 

Until next time,

Hailey Daily
