Summer Accessories Report (plus a giveaway!)

May 26, 2016

Happy almost Memorial Day weekend! I thought I’d kick off summer with a mini “accessories report” from one of my favorite lines of jewelry. Over the years I have come to love Stella & Dot because their pieces are always fresh and on trend, yet classic and not “over the top”. I am sort of a minimalist when it comes to jewelry and am naturally drawn to small, simple accessories. But being a busy mom with little time to put effort into every outfit, I’ve started branching out and wearing more statement pieces because they can take a basic outfit up a notch (sometimes shorts and a tee just needs a knockout necklace, right?).

Avalon Tote | Havana Pendant Necklace | Bracelet

Stella & Dot has a great mix of both types of jewelry and my favorite part about their collection is that they have tons of pieces that can be worn several ways (like the necklace above and my favorite earrings below which can be worn SIX ways… talk about good #shoppingmath 😉
