It’s more than a season…it’s a spirit!
There is just something about the effortless wristfuls of bracelets, the salty beach hair, the light necklace layers that make a summer soiree look so easy to pull off! It’s all about ease! Go for an eclectic mix of jewelry you’ve collected over the years mixed with on trend accents for Summer 2014.
It’s no secret that the 90’s are back in a big way… crop tops, backpacks, birkenstocks anyone?! But we’re most excited about the return of the choker! We love to layer around here and this super short necklace is the perfect balance to all the mid-length and long necklaces we love to wear. The Free Spirit Beaded Chokers are a current staff favorite and we’re all obsessed with the new Paradise Found Y necklace. Reach new heights with lengths that hit the mark on every level!
The warm nights, campfires and bare feet of summer give off such bohemian vibes. There’s a mentality about the season that just makes you want to let go and live freely. Channel the energy of these free-spirited styles for an easy-living look that’s uniquely yours. Don’t worry about what makes sense, wear what FEELS right!
It’s hard not to have a smile on your face with the sun is shining, so why not embrace summer as the season to experiment with color! Keep your clothes simple and let your accessories make the statement. Add bright pops of color to your summer style by stacking multiple bracelets. Make the mixture authentic to your individual style by adding your favorite color, beaded or string, and an i am statement.
Simple but meaningful, charm necklaces add a chic touch to your personal style. Charms give you a great opportunity to express yourself through jewelry. Our Make A Wish Collection has endless options, start by finding ones that are significant to you as an individual. The Unicorn necklace speaks to someone who has a whimsical approach to life; wear a Wishbone as a reminder to believe and trust in your dreams. (I wear my Feather as a reminder that I am a free spirit at heart). The possibilities are endless… so have fun layering them on!
At Dogeared, a large part of our corporate culture is shaped by supporting our community and giving back – through volunteering, partnerships and financial support. For the past two years, Dogeared has enjoyed an incredible partnership with Step Up, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to inspiring girls to fulfill their potential. Step Up offers after-school and weekend programs to empower teen girls from under-resourced communities to be confident, college-bound and career-ready. Many of these teens face challenging life circumstances and Step Up ensures that they stay in school, helping guide their futures to break the cycle of poverty frequently helping them be the first in their family to attend college. Step Up recruits an extensive network of professional women to invest in the future success of these girls through mentorship and financial support. Step Up projects that for a fifth straight school year, 100% of seniors will graduate high school and be accepted to college!
Dogeared was so honored to once again be a sponsor at the 11th Annual Inspiration Awards hosted by Step Up Women’s Network. The day brought together a room of nearly 900 amazing women to celebrate inspiring young girls who have worked so hard to overcome, grow and step into a new chapter in their life. Their stories are heartfelt, their obstacles and challenges monumental and their success inspiring. These young women provide so much to all of us who have had the honor to see them grow and to share in their journey. Dogeared is so grateful to partner with Step Up and help foster their vision… inspiring women to inspire girls.
