OOTD Tweak: In between Spring & Summer Style

This is one of new favorite go-to outfits for this in-between Chicago weather! I love pairing a good heal with denim and a casual top. This outfit formula is also great when I'm in a rush. Just put on a bright lip color, throw everything in my go-to bag and I'm out the door!

What's your go-to outfit for this in-between weather?

Edgy Feminine Style Tweaks

It's not surprising that I would flood my blog with everything Spring. This season symbolizes so many special things for me. Spring was a time I played outside for hours as a kid growing up in Vermont, a time when I celebrated another year of life, moments spent with my grandmother in her garden, walks and runs by the lake with my dog, and my love of fresh air and new beginnings. This is also a season when I can go crazy styling my life with more Spring whites and fresh flowers. 

There's a forgiveness about this season that gives us all a chance to start fresh; blossoming into the person we are meant to be. Although I dream about visiting California all the time, I don't know if I could permanently live in a place that didn't have the change of seasons. It would be difficult for someone like-me who is addicted to change. 

I would love to know which time of year inspires you to be yourself. Comment below and share your favorite season and why you love it so much?

Outfit Style Inspiration

I'm always finding the balance between feminine and edgy when I style an outfit. This beautiful floral print dress has a conservative silhouette that demands respect when paired with a strong structured [animal-friendly :)] faux leather jacket. Instead of going with a super feminine or conservative style shoe I had to pair this conservative dress with a modern structured shoe to let the dress do all the girl talk.

Spring Style with Jewelry Designer Tania Rodamilans

untitled103_.jpg

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a natural promoter for people, places and things I love. Tania Rodamilans' jewelry designs are definitely in my category of favorites. Even though her designs alone make a great impression, its her story and big heart that made me want to share her collection with you. 

My favorite Tania Rodamilans jewelry collection is the Lucky U Collection (featured below). With some of the ups and downs in my personal life lately I really related to the symbolism of "luck" in her designs. Each one of her signature u-shaped welded pieces mimic that of a horseshoe.

Meet the Designer

Tania Rodamilans

Coming to the U.S. from Barcelona, Spain this creative spirit made a name for herself in the Midwest art community. If you've ever been to Spain you know there's no comparison to their implementation of modern-boho style and surrealist-modern-artistic influences. Tania's jewelry designs, wardrobe and home decor both reflect her roots growing up in Barcelona along with her artsy flare. 

What was your inspiration for this collection?

"This collection takes its inspiration from a time-honored, legendary symbol of good luck, not to mention an indispensable accessory to one of our most beloved companions. The horseshoe. Famed more for its form than its function, the iron it's forged from is said to ward off evil. And its shape, the arc represents the vault of Heavens." 

 

How did you turn your passion into your business?

"My business is a combination of painting, jewelry design, and accessories. I started designing jewelry when I realized I was modifying and altering most of the pieces I owned to make them my own. I decided it was time to transition from one art form to another, so I parked the brushes for a while and started to design art I could wear.  Unlike a painting or a photograph, jewelry moves with your body."

How can tweaks to our accessories (i.e. jewelry) make big impacts on our style?

"Accessories, added to the most basic outfits, can make them come alive, like the subtle magic that music brings to film or how a frame highlights a work of art. Accessories bring a sense of completeness that it is hard to achieve with clothing alone. Rather than adding to, these elements are about bringing out the beauty that already exists in the light, the shadow and the emotion of the piece. The same is true of just the right necklace. Leaving home without accessorizing is like walking out without shoes."

I'm honored to be the inspiration behind the Tania's above earring design. As a dance choreographer I've always designed experiences through movement so I was inspired when Tania shared her inspiration of movement when designing her jewelry. 

What was your inspiration behind these beautiful earrings?

"These earrings are inspired by you, stylist and choreographer. A tribute to your graceful sense of flow and creative spirit. You are somebody that moves as fast as I do and knows how to go with the flow of life" 

Why do you like to incorporate movement into your designs?

"I incorporate movement in my pieces because I am fascinated by the non-static nature of jewelry. That’s why I love to design longer pieces, the more chain you add the more it is going to move."

One Necklace 2 Ways

Many of Tania's Luck U designs can be worn 2 different lengths for different looks. See photo below.

Any upcoming events or projects you want to share?

"You can find me at Renegade Arts Fair May 13th and 14th where I'll be featuring some new designs. Feel free to stop by and say hi! Or say hello on Instagram, Facebook or my website."
