Bracelet Stacking!

Hello everyone! I LOVE jewelry as I’m sure many of you do too. Today I’m going to talk about bracelet stacking (arm party? whatever you want to call it). I always have to have bracelets on, just like I always have to wear a watch. It’s a part of my outfit.

Before I started doing this blog and selling my handmade bracelets online, when I saw other people doing it, I always thought well, I could do that.

I’m still in the beginning stages of creating an empire(HAHA maybe?), but it definitely feels great to get this far. It’s…

Fashion Friday: Colored Denim!

Good morning and Happy Friday! Today I’m going to share how I pair colored denim. I bought an awesome pair of khaki green denim this past fall.

The caged heels, a trend this spring/summer, make it the perfect outfit…

How To: Layer Necklaces

Hi All! Today I’m going to share something I love to do, which is layering necklaces! It took me sometime to mix metals and find out exactly what I liked together. Here are some of my tips and tricks! I think everyone should have a bar necklace. The top gold necklace is by Argentino Vivo. I found a similar one at Nordstrom here.

Happy Monday!

Monday is definitely something everyone copes with differently. Some cope with coffee, a good book, music or early morning exercise. Either way for me, Monday is what you make of it. A good attitude can get you a long way. (Sorry I may be overly optimistic this Monday because I’m off! HA) I’m excited to make this Monday a little better by launching my blog, Simply by Simone! So welcome everyone. Here’s to some fashion, fun and enjoying the little things! I’m new at this, so I’ll always be open to suggestions along the way. PS: Happy Cinco De Mayo!…
