Guest blogger: Chic Chef

Hi everyone!
Today I am so excited to introduce one of my favourite bloggers, Layla of Chic Chef all the way from the US of A!  I absolutely love how Layla wears colour to create such a polished and chic look.  Her outfits are something that I would wear in a heartbeat, in fact I think I might duck over to Asos now to snap up this skirt : )

Top: Nordstrom
Shoes: Enzo
Ring: YSL

 One of my favorite color combinations for the summer has to be cobalt blue and white. It reminds me of a summer escape to the Greek islands, and the contrast looks so refreshing. Normally white pencil skirts are not that interesting, but this one from ASOS has the most amazing crochet hem, that makes it a real statement piece (and it's on sale!). I paired it with a cobalt blue top and white pointed heels for a chic summer look.

Also, I have received many emails asking where I get my chain necklaces I wear in my posts. I buy them from DaryaLinks and they just opened a new Etsy store here. They have really reasonable prices, awesome designs, and their chains are not too heavy. I am wearing their "Island Hopper" necklace which is perfect for this look since it has a gold chain layered with cobalt blue lapis lazuli beads. What do you think?

I hope you like the look! And you can "Pin" your favorite pictures using the "Pin It" button on each picture.

xo Layla
