#OOTD: Back to Basics With Some Flare (Feat. Bijoux USA Flat Square Necklace)

Black, white, and bold. That's essentially what I wore today when I stepped out into Sewickley to meet my mother for our weekly Sunday Funday brunch.  I just thought what a better opportunity to step out in my beloved sun hat, white pocketed Ann Taylor top, paired with basic black shorts and some edgy chained sandals. And what better to compliment and dress up an outfit other than some statement jewelry! Let's check out the deets below:

First Up: Black Sun Hat by Style Plaza

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love this piece because it really is a staple piece and it's just so simplistic it goes with just about anything. Also for a day out in the hot sun, it really helps keep you cool and shady!  

My Beloved Banana Republic Shades:

The Flare: Bijoux USA Flat Square Necklace  

This piece is one of my favorite necklaces to dress up any out fit. To me it's just so fun and bright and cheery for summer and really glams up an otherwise simple outfit.

Next: White Pocketed Silk Blouse by Ann Taylor

This blouse is seriously one of my go to pieces for a hot day. It's breezy, cool, and comfy. What more could you want in a piece of clothing? I also adore the little detail of the button to roll up the sleeve.

Large Cuff Bracelet by Bijoux USA:

This cuff is one of my favorite staple pieces of jewelry because it's so simplistic and can be worn with just about anything!

Louis Vuitton 2008 Cruise Collection Bag:

This bag has been my old reliable summer bag since my Junior year of high school. This fun summer bag is just so comfortable to carry due to the wide straps and also is very easy to have cleaned at the end of the season due to the fact it is made out of canvas material.

Basic Black Shorts also by Ann Taylor:

These shorts are also very comfy and cool for the summer weather. Since they are made of rayon and cotton they let your legs breath and keep you from getting too hot.

Last: Nine West Sandals

I adore these sandals because they add a little edge to this chill outfit. I also love them because they are incredibly comfortable and though they have a little heel, they aren't so high that they kill your feet.
