July Fashion Edit
Wow, July already! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July weekend, GEMS Friends! I spent mine taking it easy with my family and sweet baby Indi. If you haven’t met her yet, go to my Instagram and look at the photos of her. I’m obsessed! #sorrynotsorry
This Fashion Edit is all about keeping you and your mini cool while relaxing at the pool. I love the color palette of this one. The bright coral + blush pinks will look gorgeous on all skin tones. (Okay, maybe not sunburned ones…don’t forget your sunscreen!)
Another great way to protect yourself from the sun is with a hat. This soft pink bucket hat for your little girly features a chin strap to keep it on, and has UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ UV sun protective fabric. I especially like the smiley face addition to it. Your linked bucket hat is made of 100% cotton, has a wide brim, and some great reviews as far as durability and fit. A simple pair of Luster pearl studs adds a touch of elegance, and is safe for sensitive ears. If you’re dressing a baby/toddler who uses a pacifier, check out the link for the Quinn Cutie Clip + Bibs Pacifier 2 Pack. The clip has a strong clasp you can attach to other things when you don’t want it clipped onto her swimming suit. The Bibs natural rubber baby pacifier allows your child to self-soothe by exercising their instinctive sucking instinct in the most natural way possible. Their classic appearance captures a look that’s both timeless and elegant.
Your daughter’s swimsuit is from Old Navy (and only $10!) It has wide shoulder straps, scoop neck + deep scoop back, knotted bow-tie and keyhole opening at the bodice. The material is a smooth, quick-drying tricot jersey, with comfortable stretch and full lining. You gotta check out the other prints, too. They are so adorable, you’ll wish they had matching ones for you!
Your swimming suit is also from Old Navy. It’s available in that gorgeous coral color, or classic black. Some features and benefits are: Crew halter with tie fastening behind neck, removable shaped cups, elasticized leg openings, quick-drying rib-knit with comfortable stretch and full lining, and built-in UPF sun protection. This suit will look gorgeous on any body type, and you’ll feel comfortable + confident.
Now onto the matching mom + mini bracelets- I selected Blush, Luster, and Mod Coral for a fun, classy, and feminine feel. I love the way these compliment the swimsuits, and accessories; but what’s even better is that you can easily keep this stack on for the entire summer and it will continue to turn heads and get people asking, “where are your bracelets from?!”
If you are looking for some added bling for the summer, I highly recommend the Clarity anklet + necklace. These are a beautiful small loop chain adorned with dainty satellites. Clarity is an ode to moments of learning, enlightenment, and finding a clearer view.
Now all you need is some cute kicks to slip on. The linked shoes for your daughter are simple to put on and off; which is especially great for independent toddlers. The adjustable hook & loop strap can easily adjust the size and fit, still stay on your kiddos feet. The linked women’s sandals are made faux-leather, and the inner material is made to reduce blisters. This shoe runs narrow, and it’s recommended to order one size up. Now all you need is to pack your snacks, sunblock, water, pool toys, etc into a bag large enough to carry it all! The tote I linked has a large outer pocket, 12" drop handles, & zipper on the top to secure it all. It’s 100% cotton canvas, and measures 23" length x 14" width x 7" depth.
Tag me in all your fun summer adventures with your family + GEMS. They always put a smile on my face ♡

Hi GEMS Friends! I hope you enjoyed your Fourth of July.
This Fashion Edit was inspired by Dreamy’s re-stock. It’s a lovely + light peach shade and has a round, semi-flat, shape. I hope you like these feminine curated outfits for babies, and toddler- 7 years old.
3 months to 18 months
This romper + headband set is a Cotton blended, with round neckline, lace hem, back buttons, and snap closure. I’m in love with this soft blush pink color, but if it’s not your favorite, you have three other colors to pick from. If you’re looking for a good pacifier and clip you need to check the Cutie Clips + pacifier from Ryan and Rose. They have every color of the rainbow and the quality is fantastic. I linked the Ivory colors, but you must browse the other colors! You’re bound to find a color for every outfit.
I know I say this all the time, but she truly can wear this stack with all of her other outfits. Apricot has been a best seller for years, and it looks incredible with Dreamy. Nora is made with Seashell and Kindness beads, and is a part of the Namesake Collection. Seashell and Dreamy are the same color, but have different shapes and reflect the light differently which adds a different texture to your stack. Her little shoes are soft, breathable and comfortable. The adjustable hook and loop closure keeps the shoe on her foot securely so you won’t lose any more shoes in public.
If your daughter has her ears pierced, consider the itty bitty (3.5mm) Heart studs. These are available in gold filled, making them nickel free and great for sensitive ears.

This cotton blend ribbed set will be a comfortable outfit for a hot summer's day. I love sets like this because of how comfortable they are, and easy for your daughters to put on by themselves. I also found a pair of comfortable sneakers that can easily be slipped on. I like having a shoe that’s easy for my independent toddler to put on herself; and love when they are durable and can be worn with many outfits.
The bracelet stack for this is similar to the stack above. She can wear it with all of her other outfits, it’s neutral and features the beloved Dreamy. I chose Lynn and Loyalty. Lynn is also from the Namesake Collection and has Blossom + Kindness beads. Loyalty is trendy, classic, and adds great texture and movement when stacked with other bracelets. Now all she needs is a sweet Linen bow clip from Lou Lou and Company. Each bow is hand tied and attached to a non-slip alligator clip. All bows are now secured so they do not come undone!For girls who have their ears pierced, I selected the round Essence Studs with a tiny clear crystal for a touch of elegance. If you have an older daughter who likes to wear necklaces, the round Rose Quartz Genuine Crystal necklace has a gorgeous color. Rose quartz is known to increase feelings of harmony and peace while it gently calms the heart.

You are going to love this week’s curated outfits for your school age, and teens. The electric colors I chose will make your daughters feel like they’re shining brighter than the sun ☀️
5 years old to 12 years old
This spaghetti strap romper is from Old Navy and has great reviews. It has pockets, made of 100% cotton and it’s available in 6 colors. It’s just SO cute! The color shown is Mediterranean Sea which looks incredible with Pacifica, Citron and Rosie bracelets. I love the finishing touch of the eye-catching rainbow sandals (which are an additional 15% off right now). Add a Luminous anket with this outfit and she’ll feel like a million bucks
For younger girls, a bubble gum pink bow clip from Lou Lou and Company pulls pinks from the rainbow shoes, and can be clipped in whether her hair is styled up, or down.
If your daughters are old enough, consider adding a Genuine Crystal necklace; such as the round Freshwater Pearl. It’ll stand out against the gorgeous blue from the romper, and encourages her to live her truth, and will bring peace to her mind. If she has her ears pierced, Amour earrings are adorable heart studs she can wear daily without irritation. They will accent anything in her closet.

This tennis dress was also found at Old Navy, and is available in 7 colors, but I chose the bright Primavera color. This versatile dress is made of light compression fabric that has a smooth, peachy-soft feel. It has a built-in shelf bra, with removable cups and soft-brushed elastic hem, vented side-slits at hem. And how cute are these accessories with it? The bright pink flower clip for her hair; Kindness studs in her ears; Prism + Chromatic + Be Happy Bracelets on her wrist and the Loyalty anklet paired with a crisp clean white tennis shoe… this whole look is just… WOW! I’m in love! Add Rainbow and Sparkle rings and the Surf Blue cross body bag from Thread, and this outfit is a straight up ACE!

Let’s wave goodbye to July this week with these two outfits for you and your baby to sparkle and shine in. I can easily see these outfits working their way into early fall with this gorgeous warm + neutral color palette. Am I crazy for already talking about fall?
I think every little girl needs a gingham piece in her closet. This bodysuit has a matching headband, is made of cotton linen, and has a snap closure for easy diaper changes. The sandals pictured are a darling gold to accent her romper + gold accessories. If gold isn’t your cup ‘o tea, you should check out the other colors and styles on the link. You’re bound to find a pair you love for your little lady. Next, dress up the shoes and romper with some classy accessories. You can choose to stack Greta, Sahara, and Adore baby bracelets all together, or stack two and let the other shine solo on the opposite wrist. The trio will look absolutely precious on her tiny wrist.
If your baby girl takes a pacifier, consider this Cutie Clip from Ryan and Rose. It’s made of silicone and is a teether + clip for pacifiers. The linked Frigg pacifiers are made in Denmark. Pick from 30 different colors, and the pack comes with two different colors for $14.99!
The Peace studs are a dainty bar stud, and often are chosen by women; but consider them for your daughter with pierced ears. I know you’ll fall in love with the look of them on her.

Okay Mamas, it’s your turn! This outfit is laid back and basic but dressed up with gorgeous pearls, gold and neutrals making it look so chic! You can recreate this look with any casual top + denim shorts. The off-the-shoulder blouse is fitting for summer and can even be thrown over your swimsuit for the remainder of summer, and paired with a denim jacket and jeans in the fall. The ruffle-trim + puff sleeve detail is so sweet. Throw on a light wash denim short, and you’ve got yourself a classic go-to outfit you’ll look and feel great in every time.
Knotted headbands are all the rage lately. The linked headband is in a pack of 10. The brown knotted headband compliments the adorable + trending braided sandal. This linked pair is made of vegan leather, has a cushioned sole, and is available in 3 other neutral colors.
I wanted to add neutral colors, gold tones, and natural gem accessories to make it look effortlessly chic. A Grace anklet will draw the eye to the cute braided sandals; Droplet Pearl threaders and the Bliss necklace accent the neckline of the blouse and highlight your natural features, such as your collarbones and cheekbones. Mix & match your bracelet stack using Luster, Horizon and Kindness Arc bracelets. You can’t go wrong with any combination you come up with using this trio! And the cherry on top is the Luna Ring for a reminder that, like the moon, no matter what phase you are in, you are still whole. The outline of a half circle represents things that are in transition. As summer is close to winding down and school is beginning next month for many, I thought this served as a beautiful symbol to enjoy our journey right where we are.
Until next week, GEMS friends. Have a great time with your loved ones!
