Happy Holidays everyone!
I have officially been MIA for the last 2 weeks and I do apologize. Trying to find the time to blog while preparing for my trip back East to South Carolina for the holidays was a bit more than I could handle. Alas, I am now back and ready to share my thoughts, opinions and outfits with all of my lovely and dear followers!
A couple weeks ago I was approached by a GORGEOUS jewelry brand called Brilliant Earth. Their forte is ethically sourced diamonds and engagements rings and let me tell y'all, they're stuff is flawless! Feel free to check them out here. They asked me to make mood boards with their jewelry defining diverse personalities. All of the pieces I had to choose from were spectacular, but the dainty feminine pieces and casual everyday jewels spoke to me the most.
For the feminine look, I immediately thought of a glam, yet sophisticated afternoon tea. The floral dress pairs nicely with the vine/tea leaf-esque earrings, while the bow belt felt fun and girly just like the stunning 18K white gold Willow diamond ring. Naturally a heel is a must when it comes to feminine perfection, but these ones with the scalloped detail along the ankle and solid gold heels are stunning! They simply scream, "I'm a girly girl and I want the whole world to know it!" No afternoon tea look would be complete without a perfectly over-sized floppy hat. If I had my choice, it would be monogrammed of course!
For my casual-cool look I wanted something girls could wear on an every day occasion, yet still feel fashionable. When it comes to an every day look, I tend to care more about the comfort than anything else because I'm usually running around all day. These boyfriend jeans and flannel top are the perfect pair to make you go from comfortable-esque to casual chic in a heart beat. If you live in a colder climate, throw on a fur vest with some fringe booties and you just took your whole outfit up a notch! Naturally while you're out and about you're going to want some sunnies to block the sun, and what better choice than Ray Ban aviators? Personally, I think a top knot would look best with this look to keep the comfort vibe going, but hey whatever fits best for you! The simplicity of the solid white gold ring pairs perfectly with the single bar necklace. They add a little pizazz to the outfit without making it overbearing. However, every girl needs a little glam in her life, which is why I paired the round diamond stud earrings to complete the look.
Do either one of these looks fit your personality? How would you pair the Brilliant Earth jewelry for a feminine and casual look? I'd love to hear your ideas!
