The Style of Summer with David Yurman

This summer, I've partnered with one of my favorite jewelry brands, David Yurman, to document my summer activities and travel for their Style of Summer project. Over the next couple weeks, I'll be sharing photos of some of my favorite places, my travels, and the David Yurman pieces I've selected to accessorize my summer looks.

My summer always begins close to home, at a little Colorado lake where my family has a house and a boat. We soak up sunshine, swim, barbecue, and take turns waterskiing all season, and I try to get away from the city to this lovely spot as often as I can.

When I put together a look for lounging lakeside, I try to keep things simple, but still put-together and feminine. I decided to accessorize my easy, nautical looks with delicate 18k gold pieces with elegant diamond, pearl and morganite accents.

I am a fan of layering delicate necklaces to accent a summery look--these pretty little pieces look light and airy, but they still make a statement.

I loved the slim gold versions of David Yurman's classic cable bracelets (of which I own several). They are especially pretty when accented with pink morganite and pave diamonds, and the proportions are just right for my frame.

I paired dressy stud earrings with my more casual looks to give them a little extra elegance without too much fuss. I like that both of the pairs I selected transition easily from summer fun to the office.

  3. What an exciting opportunity for you! And I love seeing these outfits, so it's a win-win :)

  4. Wow congrats on this great collab with a great brand. Loving your outfits and the backdrop!


  5. Love the 1st look. Where did u get the hat? I m petite like u & can't find any hat that fits my small head.

    1. The hat is from J.Crew! Their S/M size in the Panama hat might fit you. I have an oddly large head for my size, so I had to size up to a M/L. You should give the S/M a try!

  6. How fun! Loved these nautical looks and also seeing you on their homepage!
