Style + Shoot feat. Chloe + Isabel Jewelry II

Hello! I'm back with another Style + Shoot post featuring jewelry from Chloe + Isabel! If you missed the first post, you can find it here. My friend Tiffany, a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel, wanted to highlight the new Tresco Isle collection. The collection features bright, candy-colored gems that are perfect for spring and summer!

Tiffany suggested adding a little DIY element by making flower crowns...which I love making! Above is a close up of one of our crowns. 

For my hair I did a Dutch fringe braid into a side fishtail braid. This kept my hair interesting, yet out of my face so that the focus could be on the jewelry and flower crown.

Necklace: One

I did my own makeup this time, but Tiffany added a lovely red to my lips to keep my face from being washed out. I've been hesitant about trying out a red lip, yet was pleasantly surprised by how this looked! Tiffany used a combination of a red lipstick and gloss, keeping the gloss at the center of my lips and defining the edges with the lipstick. This helped keep my lips from looking sloppy.

Necklace: One (same as above)

Below is Tiffany's flower crown. It was larger and heavier than mine so I was very cautious about tilting my head too much. It looks like I just walked out of a garden!

Earrings: One

Interestingly, the earrings I'm wearing on the left (below) are clip-on earrings. A heavier earring could be more comfortable as a hook since I could see the weight become an issue after an extended period of time, but the time that I wore the clip-ons they didn't bother me at all. I'm a big fan of subtle drop earrings, thus I'm crushing on the ones in the picture on the right below.

Earrings: Left, right (Both from Undreamed Shores collection)

As Tiffany and I wrapped up, I decided to try on both flower crowns layered on top of each other just for fun. Aside from my face being overwhelmed by the flowers, I think it's not half bad! I was feeling a little like Chiquita Banana

I had a blast working with Tiffany again! Like last time, we treated ourselves to a delicious snack at The Pie Hole after we cleaned up. This time I tried the Angel City steak and ale savory pie this time and I am in love. I was afraid the steak would be dry, but it was so moist. It's like a chicken pot pie (with potatoes, carrots, and peas), but with steak instead of chicken. The double crusted apple pie and maple custard are also great. 

Thanks for reading! Until next time!

P.S. Once again, this is not a sponsored post. Tiffany is a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel and she invited me to partake in this photoshoot. All photos were taken and edited by her. Some additional editing was done by myself.
