The Chloe + Isabel Summer Collection

With the summer solstice upon us (I feel like it's already here!) I scoured the Chloe + Isabel Amalfi Coast Lookbook for pieces that are summer ready. I recently received the Limencello Statement Necklace Set (photos of #1 wearing that one on my Facebook page) with gorgeous faceted yellow, turquoise and howlite stones so I was looking for everyday jewelry, convertible pieces I could mix and match and wear with my favorite tees and boho prints. I can't wait to show you what I picked out, recommend a few must-haves for summer 2016, and show you my Chloe + Isabel display along the way.

First up is the Capri Three-Row Convertible Necklace, which I just had to have when one of my VIP customers shared these pictures of herself wearing the necklace with shorts from Stitch Fix and a top from Tag. Isn't she adorable?


Here are a few close ups I took after my last pop-up party. I'm going to wear this baby tomorrow!

   

I love Chloe + Isabel convertible necklaces. I've always wanted to rock that layered look, but had trouble matching. These are ready to wear as is, but can also be separated to coordinate with other necklaces or worn on their own.


I can't wait to try them individually with the Capri Convertible Pendant Necklace below. This one has a slide adjustment on the back so you can wear it like a bib, long, or anywhere in between.


I wore it the day it arrived as it worked perfectly with the crew neck I was wearing, and paired it with the Lunette Long Station Necklace (see this look on my Facebook page).

I caved in and ordered the Wide-Brimmed Summer Straw Hat after realizing it looks good on everyone. I was too lazy to take out the tripod, and selfies with a DSLR aren't easy; be kind.

We carry several other non-jewelry summer essentials, be sure and check them out!


That there is the Morningtide Convertible Collar Necklace from my starter kit, which is becoming my signature piece. The v-neck is the Sleeveless Linen V-Neck Tee from Loft in Forever Navy.

For those ponytail kind of days, you know the ones (today), I ordered the Jen Atkin X Chloe + Isabel rose gold Ponytail Clip, part of our latest collection of hair accessories.


I love the packaging on the new hair accessories. This one came in a pretty box and the other a magnetic closure pouch, perfect for gifting.


For fancier summer hair days like summer weddings or graduations I chose the Small Crystal Pave Fan Pin Set


I guess you can say I got a little hair obsessed. I threw in the Crystal Baguette Hair Comb to match my Mirabelle Petite Collar Necklace and drop earrings, commonly worn as bridal jewelry pieces but I wear them to church.


The jury isn't officially out on whether I'm a Chloe or an Isabel, but this next choice is a little bit of both. The Bianca Teardrop Ring has that elegant, vintage feel with a touch of modern maven with the chalcedony stone.


I wasn't sure which size to buy so I ordered an inexpensive ring sizer on Amazon which worked out well. You can buy yourself one here.



I prefer this type over the various rings on a loop because I'm always worried my fingers will get stuck in those! It also takes up very little space in my storage case.


I placed it near my ring holder at my last pop-up party and I think every single guest measured their fingers. It's pretty handy! 


I bought this little ring dish at Hobby Lobby right before I signed up to become a merchandiser and I absolutely love it!

Here it is with the Lunette Open Band Ring, which I've worn everyday since I got it. You need this ring for summer; it's lightweight and you won't even notice you're wearing it (with exception of the constant compliments). If you're on the fence about ring sizes, the "open" styles like this are all adjustable.


I may have to start changing my clothes a few times a day, I desperately want to wear this next one. I love the cut of the amethyst stone on the Geovista Convertible Pendant Necklace


I saved the best for last, one of our most popular styles for summer. The aquamarina collection has so many great pieces, I may get a bracelet to coordinate with this Convertible Pendant Necklace.


I got this cute little mirror for my display at the Daiso store.

Here's a close up of the top layer, so pretty!


I couldn't get a great picture of my whole display (which I'm constantly rearranging), but here's the condensed version.


What do you think? Do you have a favorite?
