Sidney Clark Designs: Our Looks for Less

When my mom, aunt, and I started Sidney Clark Designs, we wanted our jewelry and clothing to be unique. We wanted to make jewelry to help you stand out in a crowd, and we wanted our clothing to be stylish and affordable, yet have an amazing quality. I am a firm believer in mixing both high and low pieces in your wardrobe. I love splurging on great denim and basics, but there are times when getting the look for less is truly the best option. Especially when we have hand-picked these great pieces for you! Check out the first installment of "Sidney Clark Designs Look for Less!"

Friday Favorites.

Here are a few things that have been at the top of my list lately! Have a GREAT and safe Labor Day weekend, friends!

This Lululemon Festival Hat has been on constant rotation in my closet this summer, along with my beloved Panama hat. (see proof below) Easy to wear & stylish at the same time! 

You can get away with wearing this hat with many different outfits… from workout clothes to jeans and tank for a casual lunch! And we all know how much I love hats, as evidenced in this blog post

My Panama hat obsession in a nutshell. 

Bite Beauty's Agave Lip Mask has been a LIFE-SAVER for me this summer! Remember this post when I said my skin/face has been so dry this summer? Well, that includes my lips, too. It's important they stay hydrated, too, because I wear lots of bold and bright lipsticks. This lip mask has really helped keep my lips moisturized, when worn at night before bed. LOVE!

One of my favorite beauty buys OF.ALL.TIME… Frank Coffee Scrub
I got the original and cannot imagine how any of the others would be better than this one! It smells divine and leaves your skin soft and glowing!! I don't even have to use lotion after using this miracle scrub! Warning: it does get your shower SO messy… might want to have an empty water glass in the shower with you so you can splash the walls clean! I've been wondering how I could make it myself, and I stumbled upon this recipe, which I plan on trying soon!

Summer Series Five.

Just when you thought I had come to my senses. Just when you thought I was done posting salads. 
Just when you thought "She wouldn't do it AGAIN… would she….?" 

Yep. I did. 

But listen… You will be glad I did! This salad is so simple, and that's what makes it amazing! I wish I had discovered this earlier in the summer, but that won't stop me from making it every night several more times before fall officially hits. Make it this week! 

Recipe via The Chic Wife

4 cups of diced watermelon
2 cups of fresh blueberries (not frozen)
1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tbsp of honey
1 cup of feta cheese or goat cheese
2 tbsp of chopped mint leaves
Pinch of salt and pepper

  1. In a large bowl toss together the watermelon and blueberries, set aside.
  1. In a smaller bowl whisk together the lime juice and honey.
  1. Pour the dressing overtop of the watermelon and blueberries.
  1. Toss the feta into the watermelon mix.
  1. Top with mint leaves and a dash of salt and pepper.
