The Perfect Jewelry Wardrobe

Building on last week’s post, where we talked about the value of jewelry (I loved reading everyone’s comments and emails…!! Thank you!) I wanted to write down my own thoughts on what a perfect “jewelry wardrobe” would look like, if one were aiming to keep things (slightly) more minimal.

Everyday Jewelry

I love jewelry – and every day I feel a little “off” unless I have some on. That being said, I haven’t worn a lot of my favorite pieces since baby came along. My Alhambra necklace, for example, is taking…

My Diamond Earrings

Can I share a secret with you? My diamonds are fake. Well, at least the ones in my ears are (usually). I have several pairs of nice fine jewelry studs that I have enjoyed wearing over the years. I love…
