Everyday Jewelry Favorites

Michele, David, Miranda, and Kendra the gang’s all here!

Everyday Jewelry Favorites- I have always loved jewelry. I feel like it is the final sparkle to your outfit and the frosting on the cake. One statement piece can change a simple outfit from boring to wow. And I’m obsessed with the look of the layered dainty necklaces, that is so on-trend these days. It reminds me of the charm holder necklaces that were all the rage in the 70s, which I may or may not still own. Although statement and trendy pieces are fun, I find myself reaching for these tried and true classics on most days.

Michele Watch
For Silver Click Here. For Gold Click Here.

My husband gave me this Michele Diamond Watch for my 50th Birthday and I absolutely LOVE it and wear it every day. I love how you can change out the bands. I started with the black leather band, and have added on more colors throughout the years and enjoyed switching them out constantly. A couple of years ago though I got the two toned silver and gold band and haven’t changed the band since! This watch is on the pricey side, but once I calculate my price per wear (PPW) I know I have gotten more than my money’s worth. Definitely a great investment!

David Yurman Bracelet

Another birthday gift from my husband was this beautiful David Yurman bracelet. It plays a starring role in my daily bracelet stack, so you know my PPW makes this one a great investment as well. I just love a good bracelet stack and it’s not complete without this beauty!

Miranda Frye NecklaceEveryday Jewelry Favorites

I saw this Miranda Frye “Stephanie” necklace and just knew I had to have it. It fits in perfectly with the layered dainty necklace trend, but it’s the classic and simple design will never go out of style. I get so many compliments on it!Everyday Jewelry Favorites

Nordstrom Initial Necklace

I love an initial necklace, especially when it has a little sparkle. This would also make an amazing and custom gift for any lucky lady in your life. Christmas will be here before we know it!

Mantra BraceletEveryday Jewelry Favorites

Another daily addition to my bracelet stack is this Mantra Bracelet. Mine says “she believed she could so she did”. It is daily positive reminder of your goals, dreams, or accomplishments anytime you look down at your wrist. They have many mantras that would make for a perfect gift!Earings

Kendra Scott Earrings

I am normally a stud or small hoop kind of girl but these Dani Kendra Scott earrings won me over. And thought they would be so cute with work outfits. I find myself wearing them way more than I ever thought I would and I get some many compliments on these as well. These are my everyday jewelry favorites.

Necklace

Ok, you caught me. I still own that charm holder necklace from the ’70s. I had such fun collecting all the charms. Maybe it’s time to put it back in my rotation?

Friday Favorites-Beauty Routine & Products

This week Friday Favorites are all Beauty routine and products I use every day. I do like to try new products but these are a constant staple in my beauty routine.

Laura Mercier-Secret Brightening Powder and Tarte Shape Tape

Beauty Routine

Beauty Routine

I have always struggled with dark circles under my eyes and people always think I look tired. Unfortunately, it’s genetic & I can’t do much about it. But I think I have found the best concealer and powder combination. Tarte Shape Tape with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder! I never have to touch up throughout the day-it’s become my holy grail combo!

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Beauty Routine & Products

 

I use this makeup setting spray every single day and I never have to touch up my makeup, it seriously stays put all day. I don’t recommend it, but if you want to try this first you can pick up the travel size version.

Estee Lauder Foundation

Beauty Routine & Products

I used to wear Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation years ago and not sure why I stopped? We got reacquainted about a year ago it was like meeting up with a long lost friend. I believe they updated the formula and I absolutely love it, lasts all day, great coverage and doesn’t look too heavy.

Mac Lip Liner

Beauty Routine & Products

I have used Mac Lip liners for probably 20 years. I started with Spice and it was the only one ever wore by me. And over the few years, I added different shades of nudes. Whirl, Soar and Boldly Bare. The great thing about lip liners is you can change the color of lipstick just by changing the liner or fill your entire lip with the liner and top off with a gloss which is very long-wearing.

Hope you have a great weekend! Cheers!

Sunflower High Rise Skinny Jeans

Love these sunflower colored denim pants from Target, fun pop of color to take any outfit to the next level, perfect for fall and happens to be my favorite flower too.

Nespresso Milk Frother

My milk steamer on my espresso machine isn’t working well any longer so I purchased a Nespresso milk frother off Amazon and it makes the absolute best foam for my morning latte!

Olly - The Restful Sleep

Olly Sleep Gummies

I had been suffering from little insomnia awhile back and I found these Olly Sleep gummies which have worked really well. It says to take two but I just take one and it works really well for me.

Coop - Latte and Lemon Drops

Coop pillow

Since I am getting better sleep because of the Olly Sleep Gummies I was in need of a new pillow so I gave the Coop Pillow a try and I’ve fallen in love! The pillow is adjustable-it comes with an extra bag of foam so you can add extra or take foam out to get it just right, kind of like Goldilocks.

The 5 Second Rule

5 Second Rule

I am a big Mel Robbins fan and recently downloaded the 5 Second Rule on Audible. I found myself being more productive almost immediately. And love to write Random Posts and Friday Favorites whenever I get time. You can get the book or on Kindle as well.

Have a great weekend! Cheers!

Fall Fashion Look Book

I know it’s a little early to post a fall look book, but I saw a leaf fall the other day so summer must be over!  Fall is my favorite time of year and fashion is my favorite as well. I could wear jeans, sweaters, and boots every day. I did purchase a few items during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and am anxiously awaiting some cooler weather to wear them because we are heading into Indian Summer here in California so unfortunately, it is still very warm.  Also, I found a few good fall basics at Target during a couple Target runs. Can’t believe that I end up in the women’s section when I’m only supposed to be grabbing paper towels!

Universal Thread at Target is one of my go-to brands, great quality for a great price. This flannel is my new favorite color combination of the season blush, cognac, and navy.

Sam Edelman never fails. Fall fashion has a little bit of a Victorian trend this year so when I spotted them on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale I knew I had to have them and they look super cute with the flannel blouse.

I happened to pop into TJ Maxx while out of town and this soft cognac-colored cardigan basically jumped into my cart. I don’t have a link but did find one very similar at Nordstrom. It doesn’t have the $19.99 price tag but maybe you can find one at your local TJ Maxx?

The target for the win again! I have been having a major Goldilocks moment looking for a pair of distressed jeans and found this Thread Up pair at Target. They are comfortable, have the right amount of stretch and distressing, and they’re affordable…just right.

 

Love this belt with the great price tag on Amazon, it is a dupe for the ever-popular Gucci Belt and perfect colored leather for fall.

This the season for a good basic cable knit sweater. I got this during the Nordstrom sale and I am just patiently waiting for the weather to cool off to wear it.

This is the perfect off white thermal henly for layering. I also got this during the sale, I am thinking I need a couple more colors.

Do you know those days when you are taking your sweater or jacket on and off?  When the weather is cool in the mornings and warm in the afternoon? That is when I love a short sleeve sweater perfect when the weather can’t make up its mind. Unfortunately, I can’t find it online but maybe you can find it in your local store? I have linked one I saw at Nordstrom which is similar.

I have always loved a pop of leopard and this year it is more popular than ever. It was time to change up my phone case, I thought? Do you change your phone case with the seasons?

This is round one of my new Fall Fashion Look Book additions, round two coming soon!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Wearing white after Labor Day

I was recently in Oregon with my bestie and we did a little shopping in McMinnville. McMinnville is the cutest little town if you’re ever in the area. Do you love Wearing white after Labor Day? I found this cute lightweight hoodie sweater and had to have it.

This reminded me of a graphic tee from the ’80s or was it an album cover? It had matching joggers but I thought to carry it with white (like worn here) or colored jeans, or grey joggers would be cute too.

wearing white Fashion Rule

I know no one would like to wear but I still love my favorite Madewell white jeans. Does anyone really follow that rule anymore? On my shopping list is some winter white denim that I can wear with some of my new fall items, I am thinking it would be crisp and perfect for that monochromatic look. Now I need to find them!

Maybe these for fall and winter?
