Bring on the bangles!

You know how some people can be shoe people or jewelry people? You’re usually one or the other. Well, I would say I’m a jewelry person. I just love the feeling that jewelry gives an outfit, an unexpected pop that it didn’t have before. For several years, I used to be all about layering as many heavy jewels as possible, the more the better. I still love statement jewelry, but I don’t layer it on as I did my first few years of college (most people probably were able to tell that I wore a school uniform from 4th grade through senior year of high school!) However, I love layering bracelets with my watch. Yes, it was a huge trend a few years ago, but I am still all about the arm party with my big gold watch. I love adding new regulars to my rotation and this new citrine birthstone bracelet from Anjolee Jewelry is perfect! I mix metals in my stack everyday, so the sterling silver band and the citrine stones go oh so well with the rest of the stack. It’s so light, perfect for stacking and it adds just the right amount of sparkle to my look. I have worn it everyday since it arrived and I just love it, it’s perfectly me!

Here’s how I styled it:

Not only am I really into mixing metals right now, but I love mixing different weights and styles. It's too fun not too!

What’s so great about Anjolee’s line is that every piece is customizable to your liking! The holidays are coming and if you’re on the hunt for a special piece for someone on your list, Anjolee is perfect. Looking for the perfect ring or birthstone bracelet? You can choose the metal type, diamond size, shape and color all on their site. Couldn’t be easier! Take a peek and start dreaming up your next special “regular.”

So are you a jewelry person? Do you go for light and dainty or heavy on the costume jewelry? I have to say I’m becoming a beautiful mix of both, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Friday Fancies: Sweater Weather

Brrrr sweater weather temps have officially set in! I have worn a sweater to work every day this week and I know I'll stay cozy all weekend long with sweaters on repeat. One trend that I've been loving lately is the swing skirt with the huge sweater. It looks so fun, comfortable and feminine, yet still staying classic (that's how I'm trying to define my style, make it more of those four adjectives!). Here's what I would love to be wearing today:

sweater weather

Victoria Beckham skirt
$1,255 -

ALDO leather boots

Givenchy leather handbag
$3,030 -

Have a happy weekend to all! It's been a long, busy week full of lots of work and I can't wait to just be able to relax and enjoy two lovely days!

P.S. Mary and I did finish the Hot Chocolate 15 K last week. We were so proud of our time and it was such a fun race. We'd definitely do it again!
