Have a Stylish Earth Day

You know how you wake up on January 1 and feel like you’re really going to commit to your new years resolutions this year (post-hangover of course)? And then by the next week, you’ve already forgotten about them. That’s kind of like what Earth Day is; you’ll try to commit to taking shorter showers and turning the lights off when you leave the room…but then it completely slips your mind on any day that’s not Earth Day. Nothing to be ashamed of. I drive a 2002 Toyota 4Runner…and trust me, it ain’t no Prius.

So to celebrate this wonderful holiday, I thought the Chanel Fall 2013 globe clutch would be the perfect image to get us started. After all, it is Karl’s world…and we’re all just living in it.

Chi City Closet: DANNIJO Bracelets

When it comes to jewelry, I’m always drawn to those bright and unique pieces which is why I’ve been such a huge fan of DANNIJO. Their pieces are not only made with such high quality but the designs are exactly what I look for in jewelry. So I found myself browsing their website and next thing I know…2 bracelets show up at my door (obviously I skipped a few steps there but I think you get where I’m going with this).

They have such great packaging which I always appreciate. Even better? Their pouches are designed by women in Africa and even individually signed…how cool!

And of course, these bracelets make a great addition to my ever-growing arm party (thanks in great part to Man Repeller for making the arm party happen).

Let’s be honest…they’re an arm party all in themselves!

Chi City Closet: Latch Collection Bracelet

I think it’s obvious by now that I have a sick obsession with neon. Mix that with a local designer who creates handmade bright and fun bracelets? It’s Latch Collection by Laura Jastram…how can you not love it.

When it comes to jewelry, I love to layer. The more the merrier, right? This piece is a statement on its own, but it’s still fun to mix it up and wear with my watch and a few other simpler bracelets.

Latch Collection bracelets also make a great gift for the holidays. Who wouldn’t want a neon addition to their arm party? Visit Latch Collection on Etsy for more info.

Get The Party Started: The Arm Party

I’ve always loved stacking bracelets, especially with my Bvlgari watch I never take off, but now that the Man Repeller has coined the phrase “arm party” my bracelet stacking has gone to another level.

I personally like to mix it up with wrap bracelets, skinny bangles and beaded bracelets. There are so many options though…the possibilities are endless! So I picked my favorite bracelets that you can mix and match for the perfect arm party.
