Etsy is my favorite place to discover pretty handmade jewelry from small businesses and JES Design Studio is my recent favorite discovery. Her pieces are affordable and her shop is filled with colorful gemstones and druzy pieces. I’m loving this turquoise colored chrysoprase stone with the initial charm (you can find it here). Definitely check out her shop for more unique, beautiful and affordable pieces!
This dress is so soft and feels like a sweatshirt with the added bonus of still looking chic. And of course the faux leather pockets completely won me over!
I’ve been having difficulty managing my hair lately. I used to get japanese straightenings for my hair from when I was 15 to about 20 and then got keratin/brazilian for the next couple of years. For the last few years I’ve stopped all treatments completely. Yes, it was nice having silky straight hair without having to do anything at all but I do love wavy hair which I can’t get from those treatments. The problem is that I’m not skilled with styling my hair at all and my hair is extremely frizzy. When my hair looks pretty on the blog, it’s because I work with hairstylists.
This time I tried something new after Brittanny showed me a youtube tutorial that seemed easy enough, even for me (also seen on Friday’s post). With my hair damp a couple hours after showering, I twisted my hair into two pigtail buns (after using Hypnotik Hair Serum); Princess Leia style. I slept on it and in the morning brushed it out and put in a bit more serum. This was the result. It wasn’t bad but I still struggle with frizz which you can’t see too much here. I like the messy-wavy “undone” look and I’m still trying to figure it out! If you have any hair tips, please send them my way!
This bracelet is so beautiful, gold-filled with pink sapphires! You can get free shipping with code Free14.
I’ve been on a cobalt kick lately so this dress was calling my name, especially when I got it an additional 50% off sale! I couldn’t find a necklace that looked right with the dress until I paired it with this fun, neon yellow piece. I think it’s a really fun color combination and a pretty sweet way to start off the week!
I’m really excited to be collaborating with Piperlime today as I’m pretty much obsessed with everything in their store. I’m not a huge fan of animal print so I was surprised by how much I liked this dress. I love the cobalt and black mix and it is so comfortable and easy to wear. And these suede black booties go with everything so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them!
