Hello, hello! I hope everyone had a nice weekend, but if you are suffering from the Monday morning blues, I might just have the cure. If you are a jewelry fan, read on for a chance to add to your collection of baubles!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of brunching with a fellow blogger/designer friend, Melissa. I wanted to be comfortable for our Sunday date, so I kept my outfit simple with a textured sweater and my favorite pair of stretchy printed jeans — perfect for a big meal!
Gasp, I’m not wearing nail polish! It’s always good to give your nails a chance to breathe, so I try to go polish-free for at least 1-2 weeks, every 2 months. I’m not a nail expert, so I don’t know if that’s actually the best timing interval, but it’s been working for me thus far. :)
I have a huge collection of statement necklaces, but not every outfit needs a chunky neck adornment. When a top requires a more delicate piece, or when I want to accessorize more casually, daintier necklaces are perfect. Meraki Handmade is one of my newest favorite shop for such pieces.
The Jolene, the “Y” shaped necklace with the triangle, is now one of my go-to styles. It’s perfect when worn on its own or in a layered stack as pictured!
So, about that giveaway!
I’m happy to announce that I’ve teamed up with Meraki Handmade to bring you a giveaway for $50 to spend on anything in their shop! Most things can even be customized with hand-stamped lettering, custom lengths or beads, etc. — talk about icing on an already pretty cake. ;)
