Weekend In Laguna Beach with Stella & Dot
Have you ever looked at a piece of jewelry and thought, this is perfect for her? She might be your girlfriend, your wife, your mom, your sister, your grandma, or your dear friend. You just saw a piece of jewelry that encompasses her personality beautifully. It is elegant and bold. Or maybe it is chic and classic. Either way, it screams her name!
That is how I felt looking through the Stella & Dot catalog last week. My eyes were drawn to so many pieces! I couldn’t help myself! There were pieces my mom would have loved. I saw a necklace my sister would never take off, and the “Mama” necklaces would make great gifts for my sister-in-laws! I could have done all of my Christmas shopping in this catalog! I had to go on a little shopping spree and I wanted to show you the pieces I loved and couldn’t live without! These are perfect gifts for Christmas for the woman in your life! They are timeless and elegant.
I grew up loving jewelry. I love wearing necklaces, earrings, bracelets all of it.
But, being a mom has taken a toll on my Target choices. I needed jewelry that would stand the test of time both fashionably and with a toddler. When I am piecing together an outfit for running errands or a play date at the park, I make sure to include my wedding ring and either a necklace or a pair of earrings. This is simple, but makes it look like you put thought into your outfit. I have a go to pair of pearl earrings and a simple gold necklace. I grab these quickly on my way out the door to catch up with my active toddler.
When I am getting ready for a girls night out, a date night or getting ready for work in the morning, I try to look a little more put together. I like to have a “completed look”. When going for jewelry, I will go for a longer necklace, earrings, a bracelet or a few and my wedding ring. If I am feeling extra fancy, I will grab a second ring.
If you invest in high quality jewelry, you do not have to have a lot of jewelry to piece together the perfect outfit. I prefer quality over quantity and usually choose simple, timeless pieces over trendy seasonal pieces. I love long necklaces that make a statement but keep it classy and I love bracelets that are good for layering.
For a weekend trip to Laguna Beach, I decided to pack my DayTripper bag with all of my beach essentials - including a change of clothes, a book, my makeup and curling iron! I was impressed with how much I was able to fit in my DayTripper bag! My adorable Covet Slone Bag was perfect for my wallet, keys and phone for dinner and walking around the shops. It is currently on sale for $100 off! But what had me most impressed were the highly coveted Rebel Leggings! I am wearing a size Large, but could have sized down to a Medium. The Rebel leggings are an edgy twist. Featuring the same ultra flattering ponte fabrication with the fashion detail of a vegan leather front that looks good on everyone! These leggings provide the same ultimate control and stretch so comfortable you will never want to take off!
