At Alt Summit most people change clothes between the daytime stuff and the themed parties at night. The first day I changed in my car and it was super awkward (hello, security cameras!). After that, Camille very kindly offered up the room she was staying in with Reachel and Emily. If you don't already read Reachel's blog Cardigan Empire then you should really add it to your reader. She's a stylist and she knows her stuff.

I borrowed necklaces from her on both Wednesday and Thursday night. I'm an unintentional collector of delicate jewelry and don't really own anything chunky or statement-making. Reachel added a big, blingy rhinestone necklace to my Wednesday night look and a huge bubbly one to my Thursday night dress. They weren't at all what I would have picked for myself but I LOVED them!

On the Saturday after Alt Summit I ended up going on a little shopping trip with my sister (and her husband and alllll the kids) and ended up buying 4 new necklaces I thought Reachel might approve of. Every time I've worn one since then (regardless of what I'm wearing) my husband says, "Whoa, you look fancy!"
The power of a necklace. It's very real, my friends.

I also rounded up 8 DIY Sunglasses to Up Your Cool Factor This Summer. I'm dying to make myself some glittered sunglasses now!
