Ever since I first laid eyes on the first Naveda collection, I was in love. So of course when Amy (the designer!) asked me to style some pieces, I was beyond excited. We picked some of her favorites from her ready-to-wear collection and I added my own flair.

First up was the Tuxedo Vest Dress. (Yes, it can also be buttoned worn as a dress!) I decided to pair it with simple black skinnies and a grey crop for a monochromatic look. To add some drama, I adorned it with some Naveda jewels, and I have to say that this necklace is one of my favorites... EVER. I dressed it down but it'd be perfect for a wedding. You can find it here.

For the next look, I paired my trusty striped tee with the Peek-A-Boo Shirtdress. I love how flow it is in contrast to the structured look of stripes and skinnies. The Saaya necklace added a little extra je ne said quoi

My favorite piece to wear was the Ombré Maxi Dress. I was a little worried about it because, well, I've gained a few pounds but it clung in all the right places. I kept this one simple, wearing just my little black booties, a choker, and a cute little bralette that showed added some extra texture in the back. I added the Rhea Necklace because... why not? It's beautiful!

The last outfit I tried was this Ombré Kaftan Dress. I love a good kaftan and this one was as breezy and beautiful as it looks. I paired it with some chunky boots and kinda love the juxtaposition of the dainty dress with the thick heels. For jewels, the Rani Necklace was a perfect fit.
