Or in this case, how to make sure your iPhone 6 looks just as pretty as you.
You know that old saying, “it’s all about the little things?” That applies here. For a while, when I thought of planning my outfits, my first instinct was to focus on tops, bottoms, shoes and be done. Then, I started obsessively scrolling through Pinterest and realizing why my outfits weren’t popping the way I wanted them to. I needed detail. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I’m a big fan of the comfy and casual style, so to make my simple looks interesting, I basically started binging on accessories. Layering bracelets, rings and multiple piercings has become a trademark to most of my outfits. I didn’t realize how much goes into planning a seriously killer outfit, so I started experimenting with more accessories and came up with the conclusion that your phone case can actually be a statement piece of any outfit of the day.
I’m always wearing a handful (literally) of rings with painted nails, so it only makes sense that the one thing I’m carrying 24/7 also looks fab. We already know I’m a big fan of layering dainty jewels, so it’s no surprise that my ideal phone case is sleek and super chic. Totally did not mean to rhyme there, but it’s true! Long story short, after scrolling through aesthetically pleasing Instagram feeds, I’ve been obsessed with Richmond & Finch phone cases, mainly because these are genuinely pretty phone cases. No joke, I swapped my phone case the second it arrived in the mail, went to a blogger dinner and got about 7 compliments just the first night. So rest assured, they’re 100% #bloggerapproved.
It’s almost always the center of attention.
Yeah, I need to get better at the whole putting my phone down thing. Especially as a blogger, half my job is to be on my phone, so I’ll be the first to admit, I probably have my phone in hand a bit too much. However, all the more reason to make sure this accessory is complimenting your fashion forward self. I know it sounds super trivial, but whenever I’m texting with freshly painted nails and a pretty phone case, I just feel cooler. I mean, I’m really not, but the better you look, the better you feel, right? Repeat: it’s all in the details.
Maybe it’s weird, but I always notice if people have super nice nails and rings, and adding a gold-lined phone case to the whole ensemble just screams aesthetic to any visually-driven person. So I got two cases, for the *necessary* purpose of having options. It’s totally extra, but I can own it!
2017 means being photo-ready at all times.
Including your hands. Ever heard of “flat lays?” Those photos where people jumble up all of their stuff in a super beautiful, engaging way with marble and white fur…we’re talking about those. How many times have you seen food photos with a phone case casually chillin in the background? It has nothing to do with the food, but it’s straight up gorgeous.
Moral of the story: your phone case is your lifestyle prop. Even on days when your hair and makeup isn’t done, your hands are 100% still in the running to be the star of your next Instagram post. It’s always with you, wherever you go, ready to make your next heart-shape foamed latte and croissant look even more tasteful.

Yep, I know.
