Have you seen Ettika’s wide collection of chokers. If not, you must check them out! I purchased a blue and gold one earlier this year, so when I was given the opportunity to acquire one in black, I jumped at the chance! They are so well made, and versatile! Love!

Ettika’s Still Surprise You choker is made from beautiful onyx beads, and 18K gold plate beads. It is extremely comfortable, and high quality; I cannot believe it is priced at a mere $30! It is such a great deal!

This beautiful necklace can be worn as a choker, or wrapped twice around your wrist as a bracelet. Stay tuned, I have already worn it as a bracelet and will share pictures with you later this week!

I wore this casual outfit, with my favorite new choker, to an early dinner with Laura from Have Need Want. We enjoyed a table full of appetizers, lemonade, and talking about her new bundle of joy arriving this fall! Be sure to check out her blog and follow along with her pregnancy.

Ettika’s Still Surprise You Choker is a great addition to any jewelry wardrobe; it will also make a great gift this upcoming holiday season! It is never too soon to think about these things 😉 You can find this beautiful onyx and gold choker exclusively online here.

Thanks for stopping by,

XOXO

Kendra Scott’s winter 2016 collection “Mirror Mirror” is here! I am so excited about this jewelry collection. I was able to view it before it hit store shelves when I visited Kendra Scott’s showroom in New York during fashion week. It is so beautiful, I am so glad it is here to share!

The collection combines an ethereal vibe with an edgy flair, which translates into a fashion-forward, yet timeless, collection. Love that!

The Mirror Mirror collection offers a little something for everyone this winter season. There are delicate pieces in opals, iridescent pastels, and neutral druzy’s; as well as seasonless gold, silver, and rose gold. There are delicate pieces, chunky pieces, and pieces begging to be layered.

In addition to stand-alone pieces, Kendra Scott winter 2016 offers sets. These sets come in stackable rings, and small stud earrings. They are both perfect for the new trend towards layering rings, and layering earrings.

I am in love with the stud earring sets! As a GenXer, I still have my double piercings in my ears from the late 80’s, early 90’s. I took the earrings out of my second holes when I worked in the financial district in the mid to late 90’s, and having multiple earrings in one’s ear was against dress code. Ha! Remember office dress codes? I  used to wear a suit everyday! But I digress. . .

The stacked earring trend is back. It can be worn with multiple piercings in one’s ear, or it can be worn with ear crawlers, and ear cuffs. You don’t need all those holes anymore! Of course, since I have them. . .I am eyeing Kendra Scott’s new stud earring sets for winter 2016 because they are perfect for layering! I would love to wear them in my second holes.

I have already indulged in a few pieces from Kendra Scott’s winter 2016 collection, “Mirror Mirror.” I have more pieces on my wish list! Good thing Christmas is coming up, maybe Santa will bring them? A girl can wish right?

Here are my favorite’s from Kendra Scott for winter 2016:


Casual spring blues

One of my favorite spring 2015 collections from New York Fashion Week was Zimmermann. (or, fall/winter since the seasons are reversed down under! Zimmermann is Australian in case you are unfamiliar with them.) I loved everything on the runway, so when their spring collection debuted, I had to have at least one piece! Since my favorite color is blue, I gravitated towards everything blue in the collection. I was surprised to see all the blue since the blue pieces were not shown on the runway in New York.

I instantly fell in love with this skirt and knew it would be perfect for both the spring and summer seasons. This skirt can easily be worn with high heels for a dressy look, or flat sandals for a summery, hot weather, casual look. It could also double as a swimsuit cover-up! Love that!

Also, if you love the necklace I am wearing, it is from Rocksbox! Rocksbox is a fabulous service with a monthly fee which sends you a monthly box of baubles to wear and love, which were hand-picked for you by a stylist. It is a great way to wear new and different jewelry all the time, without spending a ton of money.
