Summer of Diane Style Blogger Julia Szendrei Jewelry

I think it’s safe to say that when it comes to jewelry, I’m without a doubt a “more is more” kind of girl.

swim week survival tip numero uno |staycation|

Even though this year marked just my second time attending Miami Swim Week, I already feel like I am closer to mastering the madness.
