May 12th | jewelry, what I'm wearing

Things have just been completely nuts lately! We had our biggest mother’s day season ever! Super exciting but it brings some late orders, a huge influx of customer emails and some unhappy people. We’re working overtime to try to email everyone back, return calls and make it all right. If you’re one of the people whose order was late, I’m so sorry! Behind every order is a person who matters and who is deeply loved. My desire is that every order is hand-crafted with care and arrives on time. And if we haven’t succeeded then I want to make it right. And Steve, myself and the team are working overtime to make that happen.

So in the meantime, I’m throwing on a fun dress, comfy shoes and working as hard as I can. This dress was my mother’s day gift and I absolutely adore it. It’s super comfy and flowy and kind of dressy. Perfect.

Outfit details: Dress, Anthropologie. Sandals, Target. Denim jacket, Gap. Bag, Stitch Fix. Necklace, rings, My shop.

Alright friends, back to work. Have a fabulous day and know that you’re loved.

how to wear it {photo shoot!}

April 14th | inspiration, jewelry

Last week we teamed up with our friends at Ruby Rose to style a few outfits and pair them with new jewelry from the shop. This shop is one of my very favorites in town–filled with vintage books, clothing, succulents and other beautiful things. It was so fun! I took lots of pics–read on for inspiration.

The whole shop is breath-taking. I always say I’m going for inspiration–but then I want to buy everything. The way they style and set up the shop is artistic and out of the box.

Boots, Yes, please.

Lindsay is wearing our first outfit. Isn’t she adorable? Let’s call this outfit ‘Classic with a Hippie vibe’.

 Lindsay runs our customer service in addition to other responsibilities. For this look we used a flowy black top, flare jeans and clogs. Such a great every day outfit!

Lindsay’s wearing the sterling ‘Believe’ Necklace and two Chevron Rings. Classic and free-spirited!

* * *

Onto our next look! Jackie was shopping at Ruby Rose and how cute is she? Super stylish and sweet. So we asked her to jump in on our shoot and she agreed!

I’m calling Jackie’s look ‘Relaxed to perfection’

I love outfits that are stylish but still relaxed. Her awesome jeans are belted and the kimono style cardigan with some pretty jewelry pulls everything together for a finished look.

Jackie is wearing the Half Full Necklace and the Twists and Turns Earrings. Gorgeous!

Next is Kimmie! She helps us with production and marketing. And she is pretty with the best smile! Let’s call this look ‘Vintage Romance’.

How fun is this dress? I love the lace necklace and tiered skirt. Whimsical and sweet.

Kimmie is wearing the ‘Oval Mirror Ring‘ above and ‘Petite Your Heart in Mine‘ Necklace below.

Below is Lindsay again with a look called {and I’m making these up as I go} ‘Gypsy Love’.

Seriously how amazing is this dress? Just the kind of thing I could wear everyday. So pretty and easy and flattering.

Lindsay is wearing the ‘Tiny Tied to My Heart‘ Necklace above and ‘Very Loved‘ Ring below.

This last look below might be my favorite–but I mean, how can one choose?! This last look will officially be called ‘Boho Chic’.

Kimmie is wearing a spaghetti strap black dress with a floral kimono and sandals. I love that kimono, in fact in came home with me and I’ve worn it five times. It’s awesome.

For this outfit, Kimmie wore the sterling ‘Love Note’ Necklace with her initial.

And a few more pics of the shop just in case you need a little more inspiration.

I’m crushing on our new collection and I’m crushing on Ruby Rose and all the beautiful items so perfectly displayed. Ruby Rose is part of the Junking Trail {a bunch of awesome vintage shops} this weekend. Doesn’t that sound like FUN?!

Our new Mother’s Day collection is full of meaning.

What you do matters. Who you are matters.
You have a nurturing heart and a strong spirit.
You are a mom and so much more!

See the whole Mother’s Day collection here and find the perfect gift for your mom, auntie, grandma or yourself!

These pieces were designed with you in mind. You are a mom and so much MORE. In the everyday busyness of life, it’s easy to get bogged down in the mundane. We move through tasks and to-do lists with fast fingers and caring hearts.

You tie shoes, wash dishes, pack lunches, write teacher notes and help with homework.

What you do matters. Who you are matters.

You have a nurturing heart and a strong spirit.

You are truly amazing.

Being a mom takes all that we are. It’s stretching and imperfect. It’s beautiful and life-giving.
And the more we tend to our own souls, the more love we have to lavish on our families.

The half full necklace {above} tells how my life is better, because you’re in it. We’ll set a diamond for each of your loves.

These gorgeous twists and turns earrings represent how we will stand together through every twist and every turn. It’s not easy, but together we are stronger. Sterling silver is only $39!

Rings, ladies! So many gorgeous rings!! These chevron rings above are perfect for layering.Point the arrow toward your heart to remind you of those your hold dear.
Sterling silver for $24!

The very loved ring is a heart-melter. Simple enough to wear every day, so beautiful it makes a statement. A statement that reminds the wearer how very loved she is!

It’s hard for me to choose a favorite piece from this collection–each one holds a special place in my heart. So much meaning!

layered necklaces {love!}

January 28th | jewelry, what I'm wearing

Oh this dress and the sunshine. I felt happy and free wearing this outfit. It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy.

The length of this dress is just right. It’s long enough to be covered but short enough to be fun. Steve got me this dress for Christmas. I love it.

 And the sunshine we’ve had lately is magical. Cool evenings but glorious days. And we got rain last night–so hooray!

And these are my every day favorite booties.

I love a pretty dress that is easy to wear.

And I love layering necklace. The sterling itty bitty heart has Steve’s initial. It’s a 16″ chain. And the petite infinity is on 18″ sterling chain. Gorgeous.

Outfit details: Dress, Anthropologie. Booties, Frye via Zappos. Bag, H&M. Jean jacket, Gap. Itty Bitty Heart Necklace, My Shop. Petite Infinity Necklace, My shop. Bracelets, My shop.

I know some of your are freezing in the east! I hope you’re staying cozy inside with a blanket and cup of cocoa!

pretty dress, tired mama

January 14th | jewelry, what I'm wearing

Hello there! We had meetings all weekend and I jumped into this week tired. That’s a hard way to start the week, but sometimes that’s just the way it is. I woke up Tuesday morning and all I wanted to do was stay in bed–but that wasn’t an option. We were running late and I threw on a pretty dress and some red lipstick. Nothing like getting ready in 15 minutes. Bam! It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

This dress is too fun. It was on major clearance after Christmas. It’s actually a cocktail dress and kind of fancy, but a jean jacket tones it down for the workshop.

I love my jean jacket. It’s kind of like a security blanket.

This birthstone bauble necklace is sooo pretty. Scroll down for more details!

Hair pulled back, red lipstick. I’m tired inside but I’ve got lots to do. I’ll work hard today and go to bed early tonight!

I feel more put together with a simple heel. But I’ll kick them off as soon I get home.

Stacked up bracelets. I love my ‘word of the year’ bracelet. ‘Loved’ is my word. I need that reminder every day.

And the birthstone bauble necklace–isn’t it gorgeous?! Only $24 today!!

Outfit details: Dress, Zara. Jean jacket, Gap. Heels, Target. Earrings, My shop. Bracelets, My shop. Birthstone Bauble necklace, My shop.

Today I’m drinking coffee, taking deep breaths and trying not to be irritable. How do you push through on the tired and frazzled days?

friends, this is big!!!

i heart bracelets

November 19th | jewelry, what I'm wearing

I can’t get enough of bracelets lately. Stacking and mixing them is so fun. I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

I snagged these camo pants at Target last week. They were set on a rack in the wrong section–but they were my size and I bought them without trying them on. {I mean, I could always return them to Target the next day since I’m there every.single.day}. But they fit great and I love them!

And of course my denim jacket is like a security blanket. Love it.

Heels make it look just a bit dressed up and more put together.

Hair pulled back likely means 1. I’m having a bad hair day or 2. I haven’t washed my hair in a couple days. But hey, it works!

These earrings are pretty much on me every day. And stacking bracelets is just FUN!!
