Cork & Turquoise..

Two unlikely friends. Maybe? Maybe not.

I love them together. I picked out these two items from J Crew for my birthday.  I fell in love with them in the store!


You can buy this turquoise necklace on J Crew's website... but I can't seem to find this clutch anywhere. Maybe it's new or only sold in stores?

Cork and turquoise products are perfect for summer. They go beautifully together, and when worn with a tan they scream "I'm hot and I'm not even trying." Looking to try out the trend? This season's designers have come out with plenty of my favorites.

1.Thong Sandal, Nordstrom, $139.95
2. Jack Rogers Cork Sandal, Nordstrom, $178.95
3. Bixby clutch, Kate Spade, $325
4. Cork and 14-karat-gold necklace, Kara Ross, $295
5. Turqoise earrings, Kendra Scott, $100
6. Mia clutch, Couture Candy, $294.25
7. Otylia ring, Kendra Scott, $70
8. "Beach Bum Blu" Nail polish, Essie, $8
9. "Shifting Power" Nail polish, Essie, $8

If you're going to wear both turquoise and cork, the rest of your outfit should be fairly simple. I plan on wearing mine with a loose white shirt, jean shorts, and curly hair.  

What do you think of this summer trend?

Hope everyone is having a great Hump Day! I finished my project that was due yesterday... but I only got two hours of sleep that night. Even after a full 8 hours of sleep last night, I'm thinking a nap is in order for today... 

Love, Cait
