I’ve been waiting impatiently for my Sydney Evan necklace to arrive – I’m so glad it’s finally here! I love delicate jewelry, and Sydney Evan makes beautiful shimmering pieces. Some of her popular creations include evil eye pendants, hamsa charms, and love rings/pendants. I’ve been admiring her disc necklace for a while – it’s a modern design with a classic shape. When I found out that there was a rose gold version – there was no turning back – it had to be mine! Hubby got it for me as a late anniversary gift (our anniversary was a couple of months back – but there was nothing I wanted at the time – shocking, huh?)
It feels so light around my neck – which is good, because I don’t plan on taking it off! I love the look of rose gold (it’s even featured on my engagement ring) – I find the copper finish subtly complements my skin tone.
I picked up another rose-hued item this week: a draped top from H&M. I wish I had a better place to take outfit photos – as I can never capture the true colour of my clothing – in this picture, my top looks nude-ish brown – but in person, it’s much more rosy.
My current fall jacket is 6 years old (and looking quite worn out), so I picked up this black canvas Old Navy trench coat as a replacement – with their amazing outerwear sale, it only cost around $30!
Even though we have a week to go before our trip, I’ve already been putting aside clothes for my trip. Planning in advance is always good – and I still have to pack for the rest of my family! I’m mainly taking sweaters, skinny jeans and boots – but there is a slight chance I’ll have to go to some work dinners with hubby. I didn’t want to waste precious packing space with too many outfits – so for “dressy clothes” I’m only bringing one pair of dress shoes, 1 pair of dress pants,1 black dress and a couple of light tops and accessories:
|H&M tops (the cream and black ones are more than 5 years old), Forever 21 necklace, JCrew belt, Nine West shoes|
I don’t usually wear tights with dresses, but I was inspired by a recent JACOB ad – and thought it would be a versatile winter look. It also meant that I could shop my closet, rather than having to go out and buy something new.
|Lauren by Ralph Lauren dress, JCrew belt, Forever21 necklace, Nine West shoes|
It feels good to have most of my clothes packed – but I still have so much to do before I go!!!
Are you planning any trips soon? What type of jewelry do you like? I’d love to read about it in the comments!
I am in LOVE with that rose H&M top, it's incredible on you! I think you're pulling off tights with the dress quite beautifully. That necklace is really lovely, I'm usually drawn to chunkier, edgier pieces, but you have me re-thinking that now 🙂
Thanks Andi – I've always loved delicate jewelry, but over the past year, I've started loving chunkier necklaces too – they have so much more impact on an outfit. You pick out the best necklaces – I especially love your F21 ones!
i love rose gold! congrats on such a pretty necklace 🙂
Thanks Veronika! Another rose gold lover :-)Isn't it great that rose gold is getting more popular – more pretty things to buy! I've loved it since high school, but I used to find that most stores focused on white and yellow gold, and only used rose gold for tri-colour items.
Love rose gold and campaigned for it for my engagement ring/wedding band set but ended up with white gold. Nathan does what he wants! :)Love the H&M top and J.Crew belt. I especially love how you wrapped it- so chic!
Thanks Ashley! It's sweet that your hubby felt strongly about your ring set! My hubby usually hates picking out gifts – he'd rather let me choose something! I guess we're made for each other, because I like picking out my own things anyway!
The H&M top is gorgeous. And that necklace, wow I LOVE it, it is sooo pretty.
Thanks Lilly 🙂
