I thought I’d take a little break from food posts and introduce you to a few of my favorite pieces from the Stella & Dot Spring 2013 Collection. And while I’m at it, I’m going to give some away! After all, I really do appreciate you guys. Thanks for reading and commenting. You guys rock.
Ready to meet my new friends?
How’s THAT for a pop of color?! Looks good enough to eat! I love the rich hues of coral, rose and fuchsia in this gorgeous Spring Awakening Necklace. Here’s a tip for ya: Pair bold statement necklaces with small earrings – let the necklace be the star of the show. I like to wear the Soiree Studs in coral with this piece.
Meet Kimberly, my current favorite. I mostly adore this outfit-maker because of its vintage inspired style. Plus it’s fun to wear. And I feel like all those “O’s” stand for Olivia (that’s my full name). It has a great feel to it and is comfortable to wear, not too heavy. There are matching earrings, but I usually wear it with these sparkly ivory Fiona Earrings to mix it up.
If you’ve been following along, you know about my obsession with aqua. When this collection was released a few weeks ago, I was SO HAPPY to see these gorgeous Lily Chandelier Earrings with aqua/seafoam stones (upper right). This is such a flattering color on most (if not all) skin tones. I usually wear them with a simple necklace and a few bracelets like the stretchy Vintage Twist Bracelet in turquoise and the very chic Eden Bangle.
As you may have noticed already, green is THE color for Spring 2013. My favorite way to wear it is through accessories – jewelry, scarves, shoes, handbags. You name it, you’ll be seeing it in green this season. To me, this Jolie Necklace is so joyful. I mean really, how can you be grumpy when you’re wearing a necklace like this? It’s got movement, fun shape and bold color all in one.
More green! Doesn’t this just make you want to take a vacation to somewhere tropical? I think it’s the bamboo-inspired design in these bracelets that makes me want to snag the next flight to Hawaii. (There’s bamboo in Hawaii, right?) The editors at Real Simple must love it too cuz I spotted the Zinnia Bracelet (the big green one) in the fashion spread of the March issue (page 121).
And I can’t forget to mention the very popular Serenity Stone Drop Earrings in turquoise. In case you were wondering, yes, you need a pair. They also come in smoky topaz and – you guessed it – green. And the smaller version comes in lapis, raspberry (below), rutilated quartz and aqua.
The “arm party” (aka stacked bracelets) has been on trend for a few seasons now – and it’s still going strong! So go ahead, stack ‘em up. Get funky. This trio (Hudson Wrap Bracelet in blue + Julep Bangle in green + Lakra Tiger Bangle) will have people begging you for fashion advice. Pair it with the Seychelles Chandelier Earrings in blue and you’ve got yourself a killer ensemble.
You didn’t think I was going to leave you without Valentine’s Day ideas, did you?! Hues of vibrant pink and red are perfect for the occasion. Luv this stack: Julep Bangle in pink + Julep Bangle in ivory + Hudson Wrap Bracelet in Red + Gilded Arrow Bangle. I didn’t think to photograph it, but there is the cutest set of two bracelets (Poppy Bracelet Set) in the Little Girls Collection for just $14.
