Aztec Inspired Summer Vibes

I went to Taco Tuesday at my mom’s house this week and of course I had to bring my favorite aztec printed clutch. I purchased this clutch around Cinco de Mayo at DSW. Can I just say how much I love to browse their accessory section while buying shoes?! I can complete an entire accessorized look while I’m there. With the inspiration of an aztec clutch, I wanted to create a fresh summer look I could rock Taco Tuesday in.



This clutch is extremely versatile. It can be worn as a crossbody shoulder strap bag for those times you need a casual vibe or hand free carrying.  You can also hold it as a clutch, which is personally my favorite way to style it.


When going for a fresh summer look I immediately thought of white skinny jeans. After all, white skinny jeans are a summer staple. If you don’t own a pair, invest in one and you will be glad you did! When paired with some sleek heeled sandals, they polish off a fresh look with an elegant and powerful vibe. These Steve Madden heels are my favorite and look great with skirts and dresses too.


For the top I chose this turquoise tee to bring out the colors found in the vibrant print of the clutch. This satiny v-neck tee from Express is so perfect I have it in another color. It is not only comfortable, but is classy in the fit and elegant in the way it shines. I can dress it up or down depending on my mood. It also has an incredible cut of a shirttail hem, which I always find to be very flattering.



To polish off the look I chose some aztec inspired accessories. Going for color, beads, tassels or angular patterns will always pair well with an aztec themed outfit. My coil beaded bracelet was a special find at Castello di Amorosa in Napa Valley. The only bummer part is it has a little wire sticking out and scratches me! I am determined to fix that! I found my colorful earrings on clearance at Target and my necklace during a sale at Express. Don’t you just love finding great deals on cute finds?!



Keep smiling!
