Double the trouble when the cousins come together for a collab…usually I’m the one behind the cam shooting the fam, but fortunately we could finally coordinate this post! With a blend of boho-chic style and plenty of sparkly jewelry, we definitely had to epitomize our everyday vibes. Hence the mix of witchy/hippie/gypsy/edgy, but we ALWAYS focus on that glitz! Karlee forced me to step out of the “all-black wardrobe” box and add in some color…..which matched the awesome graffiti art in downtown St. Pete, Florida, amazingly well!
In celebration of the launch of CosmoStyle Jewelry, a line of jewelry and scarves designed by myself and designer Theresa Lirov (in collaboration with the editors at Cosmopolitan magazine) – we featured a gamut of our fav pieces from the line! You can shop ALL (well, almost all, the statement necklace on me in the red outfit is my #DIY) pieces on the CosmoStyle Jewelry website here– with collections “Zen”, “Boho Traveler”, “American Prep” and “VIP”, there’s definitely something for everyone. Follow us on our Facebook page and Insta account for the latest news and trends. Let me know what your favorite piece is!
Karlee, let’s try to plan another shoot when I’m back in Chicago, alright?!

Summer is definitely the season to sport your best boho-chic accessories…..and we all can agree #DIY accessories are the best accessories, right?! Gemstone and agate pendants combine with metallic tattoos (they aren’t just for skin, did ‘ya know?!), crystal flatbacks and chain to create unique necklaces that pair perfectly with any summer outfit!
My signature Boho Bliss Necklaces come together pretty quickly, meaning you’ll be whipping these up for the whole squad. Choose bright colors if you want a funky, fun vibe. If you want a more classic look, you can’t go wrong with black and mixed metals.

A hint of the Southwest adds spark to this mini-mood – red agates representative of a rocky desert landscape, hammered gold adding organic texture and a hint of glitz providing the always-necessary sparkle.
These pieces are all part of the brand-new CosmoStyle Jewelry“Boho Traveler-Cali” line, which has gotta be my fav look (who would have guessed though?!)…I designed it to incorporate versatile pieces with plenty of earthy-chic style. Inspired by festival fashion, classic bohemian elements like crescents, faux leather and feathers blend with semiprecious gemstones and oxidized finishes, making for total mixed-media goodness! The Luna Cuff and Ring are the perfect statement jewelry pieces for any summer look, while the Sienna Crescent Wrap Bracelet and Necklace add a bit of edge to your outfit. They’re offered in a variety of different colors and gemstones – yes, there’s black of course! To get you in the full mood, I made a mini-lookbook vid on my YT, also attached at the bottom of this post.
And if boho is not your style, no worries. Preppy more your vibe? “American Prep” is my modern take on Audrey Hepburn/Cher Horowitz style. Cue the contemporary pearls, sophisticated sparkles and red, white and blue baubles! “Zen” is all about aromatherapy jewelry and wellness; minimal-chic pieces with natural gemstones and lava beads make for double-duty jewelry. Read all about the spike diffusers (my must-have!!! I use lavender and peppermint) and aromatherapy jewelry here! If you want to go totally glam, choose something from “VIP”; the VIP look was designed by my colleague Theresa Lirov. The Double Take Statement Necklace is to die for, providing some maximum-impact sparkles! Happy shopping!
