I Go Nowhere Without…

I cleaned out everything recently, my closet, drawers, and purse. I realized when it comes to items in my purse there are things I go nowhere without! First, my wallet because it has all the important stuff, but something I recently came to discover is…splurge on a wallet! Similar to a good handbag a quality wallet is totally worth it, pick a color or brand you love and it will make you smile every time you pull it out of your bag!

I can’t leave the house without my Dolce & Gabbana  polarized sunglasses which fit me perfectly (sunglasses – another item you should splurge on), my iPhone which basically does most of my thinking for me, and a notebook & pen because you never know when you’ll have an amazing idea! Emergency items like a great body lotion, body spray and bobby pins are essential! I can’t go more than a few hours without applying my chapstick, especially when it smells SO amazing. Lastly, I always have business cards because you never know who you’ll meet, and the card case is just an adorable added bonus ( thanks to my boyfriend). 

 

Re-work Your Jewelry

Sometimes my favorite way to accessorize is just throwing on whatever strikes me at the moment. That is how I usually get dressed, but I find myself going back to the same outfits and same pieces. I think every once in a while it is important to go through your closet and create new outfits and this also applies to your jewelry. I have never done this before, but I randomly decided to take out all of my favorite items and lay them on the floor and start piecing them together in combinations I would not usually try. I mixed metals, mixed hard and soft, and I mixed girly and boho. I was pleasantly surprised with the different combinations I came up with and thought I would share my idea so you can be inspired as well and mix up your own accessories!

I love GILES & BROTHER jewelry not only because it is my last name, but because of the classic,  fresh, yet simplistic design of their pieces. The only thing stopping me from buying all of the GILES & BROTHER accessories is the price point, which is out of my budget with prices ranging from $50 – $300. Needless to say when I heard about the JewelMint collaboration with  GILES & BROTHER I was ecstatic. The same style accessories but at the JewelMint price point ($29.99!!), it can’t get much better than that! Below are some of my favorite pieces from the collaboration, hurry before they are gone!
