Picnics with Socialite Pink!

Picnics with Socialite Pink come perfectly equipped with fresh flowers, sweet treats, and trendy jewelry pieces..what more could a girl ask for? I want to give a huge shoutout to Socialite Pink for letting me be a part of their 3 part lookbook series to show off their Spring/Summer 2017 Collection (you can shop for the collection here). Everything was planned down to perfection!  The setup was super chic and girly and had a little bohemian twist, including all of their stunning jewelry pieces! I had such a blast shooting and dressing up in pastels for the picnic. When it comes to putting together your own tea party or picnic, I have three main tips to help with the party-planning..

1. Choose a theme: Alice in Wonderland, Pastels, Pink Strawberry Champagne, there’s just so many options when picking out a theme! Having a theme is super important; it helps tie everything together and makes it easier when you’re shopping for supplies that will match each other.

2. Add flowers: Flowers just have a way of making everything look three times better than before. They just have a way of bringing some extra life and color into a setting. My personal favorites are roses or peonies.

3. It’s all about the Plating: It’s easy to forget how much creativity you can actually put into the plates at parties. And for picnics, the basket says everything! So switch out those plates and replace them with a wooden board, a woven basket tray (we had one filled with fresh croissants!), or even hand-painted antique plates.

I’d also like to give a huge shoutout to Summerfield at Tate Farms for letting us shoot at your location, check out some of the pictures from our picnic below! All of these stunning pictures were taken by Jannet Blas Photography.

Socialite Pink is based on 3 simple things: Gorgeous hyper-functional jewelry, women encouraging women and giving. They also have a “Sparkle you, Sparkle her” gifting program: for each piece we sell, Socialite Pink will gift a piece to a girl who is overcoming life’s challenges with grace and strength! One of my favorite things about Socialite Pink’s jewelry is that they’re all so easy to style since you can mix-match and layer the pieces on. My favorite piece from this shoot would have to be the Arabella Earrings (which you can purchase here), they were classic unique compared to other hoop earrings because of the beaded detailing.

Each jewelry piece feels personalized and Socialite Pink offers an exceptional collection of charms in different shapes: from stones to feathers to arrowheads!

Accessories really are a girl’s best friend! I teamed up with X Jewellery to show you a way accessorize for the summer with a range or composable bracelets. Unlike other modular link bracelets, X Jewellery is based off of the classic anchor chain-a symbol of strength-chosen to reflect bold women who see fashion as a form of expression. Each bracelet is unique it it’s own way like a self-portrait, composed of a set of links that YOU personally choose to tell your own story. X Jewellery is founded on a commitment to seeing women thrive and focus on three promises:

  1. Jewelry made by YOU-it’s a creative way to express yourself. X Jewellery gives you the power to personalize your bracelet

Western and Rustic ft. Socialite Pink Jewelry

From outdoor music festivals to shopping at local flea markets, I get inspired by the bohemian styles but I like to add an eclectic western twist. The western-inspired look has been a huge trend for summer and was seen all throughout Coachella. There’s no such thing as too many accessories and the possibilities are endless from layered necklaces, floral and fringe, and cowboys hats! My favorite accessory for summer are necklaces. The one I’m wearing below is so unique because the beading changes from stone to crystal, you can purchase it here. My favorite part is that the wooden pendant is detachable, you can have a whole collection of different pedants to exchange with friends! You can shop for some gorgeous spring and summer accessories from Socialite Pink’s collection here.

Socialite Pink was so sweet to ask me to be a part of the photo shoot for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. For this part of their lookbook, the other models and I wore printed flowy dresses (shop for a bohemian dress here) and we shot with rustic textured walls, longhorn skulls, and even a vintage car! The coolest part of our accessories is that they were made of wood, different shaped stones and crystals, and even druzy stone gems. Pairing them with our dresses worked perfectly! The key tip to keep in mind when dressing bohemian is breaking fashion rules: messy hair is perfect, denim on denim is okay, and you can mix tons of different shades on brown together.

Spring To-Do list (ft. Socialite Pink jewelry)

Spring brings in the perfect, ideal weather for outdoor activities. It’s not too hot or humid and flowers are in full bloom so I’m extra happy around this time of the year! I decided to put together a list of different things you can do to enjoy the springtime. Feel free to post pictures of yourself enjoying this spring season on Instagram and use the  hashtag #seasonswithsyd so I can follow along with your adventures!

Spring To-Do List

  1. Go to the park: there’s a variety of trails to go hiking, biking, or take a casual stroll to enjoy the good weather! Be sure to pack a bag full of healthy goodies like trail mix (almonds, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds are a yummy combo!)
  2. Plant an edible garden and/or flower bed in your backyard! This is the perfect way to put your “green thumb” skills to work. If you don’t have your own backyard, look into local community gardens on how to get involved
  3. Host a BBQ/bonfire outdoors
  4. Explore a local botanical garden or flower field.  The Dallas Arboretum has a whole calendar of public festivities like concerts, tours, etc. And if you’re wanting to have a mini road-trip, there’s also the Tulip Fields a little further out of town in Pilot Point, Texas
  5. Berry picking! You can make delicious homemade jams, jellies, and pie afterwards!
  6. Shop at the Dallas Farmer’s Market for fresh flowers, berry jams, or delicious produce. The rainbow selection of fruits and veggies are to die for!
  7. Spring Cleaning: clean out your closet, attic, or any other storage units to sell items at a garage sale or donate them to Goodwill
  8. Find your new favorite wine bar that also makes amazing charcuterie boards
  9. Plan a tea party or picnic outdoors with your girlfriends. Pink lemonade is a must-have!
  10. Update your jewelry collection by shopping from Socialite Pink’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection!

A huge shout out to Socialite Pink for inviting me to be a part of the photo shoot for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection! The whole picnic scene was set up and planned beautifully from the throw pillows to the jars of pink lemonade garnished with mint leaves and blueberries. Not to mention these stunning jewelry pieces! You can purchase the necklace I’m wearing here, it’s such a gorgeous statement piece. Check out more stunning pictures (taken by Jannet Blas Photography) from part of the collection below. My favorite has to be the dream wrap bracelets, they can also double up as a necklace, how cool is that?!

Dreamy about Druzy

With the warmer weather here, now’s the time to take off those scarves and scarves and replace them with unique jewelry pieces! I’m in love with these new necklaces the JewelzbyHanz sent me and I had so much styling them in different ways. My favorite piece is this statement druzy bracelet. Druzy stones have such an exotic, unique appeal to it since the shape and style is so different compared to other gemstones. My favorite part is how the bracelet can also double up as choker necklace. The purple color is so beautiful, I kept on getting so many compliments while wearing it! They also sell a gorgeous gold version here. These necklaces make a huge statement and the druzy stone is perfect to add a little bit of sparkle. I also love to wear daintier items when layering jewelry so I recommend looking for pieces that exotic touches like a tooth shape, animal, or a small arrowhead like this one or this half-moon pendant here.

Rocksbox

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are having a great summer so far! I decided to write a little blog post about my experience with Rocksbox! They found my Instagram page and contacted me to become an Influencer 🙂 Check out their page: Rocksbox the website is a premiere destination to borrow designer jewelry before you choose to buy the pieces. Different designer brands include Kendra Scott, Loren Hope, etc. AND you can use the code: sydnguyenxoxo during checkout to get a whole month of FREE Rocksbox!!!!  All of the pieces are absolutely stunning, I keep adding pieces to my online wishlist. They send 3 jewelry pieces in your box at a time and each box is special because a stylist chooses pieces to match your personal style! Check out their Instagram right here to get inspired by all of the beautiful looks.

For this specific look, I wanted to keep the color palette muted but maintain a fresh, summery look. My first Rocksbox included very minimalistic gold jewelry pieces like a dainty gold chain necklace, a thin jeweled ring, and these spiked studded earrings which were my absolute favorite! You probably also noticed something different about my hair, I decided to lighten it for the summer! I had my hair recently bayalaged modeling for Pravana, so the color of my hair is a lot more vibrant which went perfect with the white and gold colors! I started off with a white summery dress so the necklace could be seen on top of it. Then I paired the look with white and brown espadrilles, a brown purse, and sunglasses. The over look was very simple but accessories really are a girl’s best friend; the main focus was to highlight the beautiful jewelry and keep the overall look simple. Take a look at my outfit pictures below! Also, don’t forget to use the code at checkout below to get a whole month of free Rocksbox!
