There’s nothing I love more than bold prints and bright colors for summer. Something about the sunshine and heat just makes me want to bust out the fun colors in summer. When it comes to color I love mixing it up by grabbing some bright colored accessories. When I’m rushing out the door in the morning, I often forget to accessorize, but when I have a few extra minutes I try to grab something fun to add something extra to my outfit.
What I’m Wearing
Dress: Umgee Tribal Boho Print Tunic Dress
Shoes: Caged Rylee Heel, Target
Necklace: Big & Bold Fair Trade Paper Bead Necklace, c/o LOT2545
Ring: Leaf Wrap Ring (similar)
I was excited to be contacted by LOT2545 about reviewing and styling a piece of jewelry. I hadn’t heard of the company before but quickly learned that owner Amanda is passionate for helping the “Least of These” in Uganda. “Least of These” is what LOT stands for, and LOT2545 is dedicated to helping the boys who formerly called the streets of Uganda their home. The goal is to empower the boys and women to change the fate of their future children by providing education, vocational training, and employment.
LOT2545 sells beautiful, handmade, fair trade paper bead jewelry in their Etsy storefront. I chose this Big and Bold Paper Bead Necklace for myself, but I love the Dembe Paper Bead Necklace, or this Bold Is In Paper Bead Necklace too! The colorful options scream summer to me, and really would dress up any outfit.

And if I haven’t talked about it enough, today is our last day in the States. We’re so excited to be off to France in the morning! I hope you guys will stick around to support a couple of new faces this week and next, and I’ll be sharing some of my usual posts as well. Au Revoir!
How do you style bold accessories? Or, if you’ve been to France, I’d love to hear about your favorite spots! I don’t want to miss anything good. ;)
Ahh, I wanna go to France. I’m thinking about moving to Paris next year if I can get my business to a stable income level!
That would be so exciting, Lix! We absolutely loved Paris, well, and London too! ;)
Have SO MUCH fun on your trip!! I love this outfit – those shoes with that dress are unbelievably chic!
Aw, thanks Bri! We had a great time! :)

You pull of that dress so well and I love how the necklace compliments it! And what a cool mission statement for the business! Have a great trip!!
Thanks Chelsie! Loved their mission too. :)
Have the best time in France!! So exciting!
Thanks Julia! We loved our time in France! :)
I love that dress! I feel like it can be so hard to find summer dresses that aren’t ridiculously short. So cute.
Aw, thanks Shannon! Definitely true – for me, it’s either too short or far too long! #thestruggle :P
I adore your dress. What a fun bohemian look.
Thank you so much, Doreen!
I am totally in love with this dress and you look AMAZING in these photos, Jenn!!
Aw, thank you so much Lindsay!
You look like a real conquer! as Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”
love your style.
