the return

It's been so long since I posted that I almost forgot my password for blogger- almost. Life's been hectic, days have been short, free time/blogger time became nonexistent for a few weeks there. I'm glad school is over with for now; the financial accounting course I was taking last semester sure took its course on me. I'd like to say I am now more money savvy than ever, but if anything I almost feel like throwing caution to the wind and stocking up on everything I've ever wanted- hello ikat/bohemian printed everything!

Well I'm back! And I have a GIVEAWAY! The girls over at Towne & Reese have hooked me up, so I can hook you up to score any piece of jewelry from their website. There site is chock full of elegant and trend defying jewelry- the kind of stuff you want to keep forever, and still pass along to your daughters. Speaking of daughters, each piece of jewelry (necklace, bracelet, and earring) is named after a daughter of the cofounder's friends- love that!!

I am obsessed with quite a few pieces from the T&R collection, but right now I am nonstop, compulsively wearing out my beautifully elegant May earrings, and stack of eternally chic Carson bangles. The earrings are so dainty that I plan on wearing them to upcoming weddings, yet still feel a small gypsy vibe when I wear them, so I also rock them at weekend brunches! And the bangles- well, I pretty much wear these everywhere, mixed with other bracelets!

  1. I'm torn between the Isabella and Hunter earrings. I like the Hunter's unique shade of green, but I also love the shape of the Isabellas. I would probably end up choosing the biggest ones b/c I love huge earrings!! xx
