:: Looks of Love, Part 2 ::

One week until Valentine’s Day! And my birthday!! Time to get crackin’ on those gifts so that they make it in time for the big day.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 //

1. Shop my favorite works of art from my dear, amazing, talented, educational inequity-fighting, Pre-K loving, brilliant friend Brittany. She custom designed her own wedding invitation suite, and also creates custom works of art. Is there a better way to spread your love than with a perfect portrait?! (Contact her directly at Brittany@bowandink.com)

2. I will never forget the first time I smelled Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf . It is such a unique scent, and one which smells nothing like a flower in my opinion. However, if you read the description you would never touch it… flat out wrong!

3. Cookies. Done.

4. Cookies’ evil twin… macarons. Double yum.

5. Rach Parcell of Pink Peonies is living the blogger dream AND created her own jewelry line. I wish I could say I hated it but…. gimme everything. Also, she has an amazing marble ring. Gorgeous!

6. When we first met, Taylor thought I had a red watch. Either he is colorblind or had another girl in mind, but regardless – this one is the way to go! A timeless Tory Burch for the win.

Good As Gold // Because, Monday

Happy Monday! I know it’s a tough one to take on, especially after the kind of weekend that you never want to end. That’s why I’m bringing you a few of my favorites, because – Monday!

There was a time when gold was associated with the likes of pirates, the 80’s, and of course – Mr. T. This is not that time!

I completely adore gold, and tend to lean towards the tone when purchasing the majority of my jewelry. I love to mix metals as well, but gold is a staple. With so many of my favorite pieces being vintage, it is really no surprise that gold has found its way into my heart, and onto my wrist.

Good as Gold (Jewelry)

 

 

1 // Lulu Frost Code Rings – These rings are insanely priced, but I love the look of stacking them together, especially for a significant date. Most might choose to spend $440+ per ring on something like their birthday, or wedding date. I would opt to go with a “2” for my stuffed animal, Two, but wouldn’t be opposed to a “13” as well. After all, “B” is the second letter of the alphabet and “M” is the thirteenth – with my birthday falling on 2/13! On the plus side, Lulu Frost has the absolute most amazing customer service, and someday I’ll treat myself to a few of these beauties…

2 // Oscar de la Renta Tassel Earrings – What is better than ODLR, tassels, and CLIP ON EARRINGS?! Nothing. Except pizza maybe. But really – nothing! I rarely wear earrings, but can imagine wearing these even with a t-shirt and boyfriend jeans. If you want the same look, but don’t have $400 to spend on good ol’ Oscar, this Etsy seller has a great selection of nearly identical earrings.

3 // Jonathan Adler Zebra Dish – Can we really ever have too many jewelry dishes? This one is so groovy glam, that I just can’t imagine it as the soap dish Nordstrom’s refers to it as. It deserves to live a better life than that!

4 // Signature Necklace – Start practicing your handwriting – this is a need! Had this been available 10 years ago, Carrie Bradshaw would have worn it in gold and owned the acrylic version from Bauble Bar too!

5 // Ampersand Ring – The ampersand is the new heart shape.

6 // Kate Spade Two Tone Watch – I have been not so patiently waiting for Kate Spade to come out with the perfect two-tone bracelet watch, and this one almost checks all my boxes! While Kate is my girl, I can’t quite commit since these watches feel so light in comparison to the boyfriend feel of Michael Kors.

7 // Stella & Dot Renegade Cluster bracelet – The perfect piece to your arm party. I often find myself grabbing every bracelet I see and throwing them on before I leave the house, and this is the kind of piece I would pick up daily. Gold. Spikes. Bling – Done!
