The perfect Cashmere Sweater

November 30, 2016


When you think of layers you generally tend to think of a cute tank and cardigan, or maybe a button down and jacket with a cute scarf.  I have a great outfit with layers and pattern mixing I am sharing later this week so watch for it.  My outfit today is the perfect layering without the bulk.  Asneh Cashmere sent me this gorgeous vest.  It is so very soft and the diamond pattern is simply stunning in detail.  When I first opening the box my mind raced with so many ways to use this versatile wardrobe item.  We generally tend to think of a sweater vest as over a blouse, or top.  I decided to style it the first time as my only under layer.  Such a cute look don't you think?  I love how it is season appropriate but allows for the weather to warm up a bit in the afternoons and you don't overheat under to many bulky layers. I shared my other Asneh Cashmere and their Pussy Bow sweater outfit here.
 I have received tons of questions and comments on my key necklace.  On my last trip to Florida, Gayle and I decided to try our hand at knotting beads.  We have made tons of bead bracelets in a wide range of colors, but this was a project I had been planning for some time.  I knew it was something I want to try and when my parents were in Europe this past summer I asked my Mom to pick up some antique keys from the wonderful flea markets they visit.  This is just one of the dozen keys she brought me back.  I love how it turned out.  I plan on making a few more necklaces and adding a different style of key to some and even a larger gemstone to hang freely.  I am currently on the hunt for some very pretty, quality Aquamarine for my next knotted necklace.  One thing I can tell you, the price you see for these type of knotted beaded necklace are well worth it after hand knotting all of these.  I do love a good challenge though!!  Have you ever tried beading, or even hand knotting beads?  Would you take on a project like this?  I would love to know who else out there is crafty!
 One of my favorite places to purchase my necklaces is from Warrior Soul Co.  She has a darling Etsy shop and I have even met her; she is local to the Palm Beach area.  I picked up this Beaded Tridacna necklace from her on my last trip.  She also will custom make a necklace in your choice of beads if she doesn't have it made.

My New favorite timepiece - JORD Watches

November 29, 2016


We are in full swing for the holidays here.  I am gathering up ideas and lists from my boys to be sure they are happy on Christmas Morning.  Every year for as long as I can remember, my mom asked each one of my siblings and me for a list of our wishes for Christmas.  I continued that tradition with my kids and no matter how old they get they still supply me with a list of wants.  I have a few hard to buy for people on my list as always but this year I have a couple of great and unique ideas in mind for them.  JORD Watches reached out to me and sent me this gorgeous Zebrawood watch.  Yes, you read that correct... it's made of wood and is such a unique watch. 

JORD watches offers a selection for men and woman with just about any picky gift recipient sure to be pleased. I personally selected the Zebrawood with the champagne dial.  I love the grain detail in the wood, and the lighter faced dial will be such a versatile accessory to style all year round.  If color is more your style, then there are several to choose from as well.  Arriving in its very own wood box with a mini drawer to stash any removed links or trinkets, all you would need to do is add a ribbon and a bow and your gift is ready to place under the tree!  Because I like treats as much as you do, I am offering you a little help getting your perfect JORD watch under your tree this year.  You will receive a $25 e-gift code towards your purchase when you click here and sign up. But hurry, the gift code link is only open until December 18th and expires February 28, 2017.

Fall is in the air

November 21, 2016


Taking a timeout was never in the plans.  It is good for the body and the soul.  I knew I needed some R&R and as the days turned into weeks, I kept feeding my soul.  Life has been a whirlwind lately.  I have mentioned it several times and while I had every intention of blogging in my spare time, my spare time become too valuable to me.  There just wasn't enough of it.  I took a step back, prioritized the things that needed my direct attention, put in place a few action plans that are continuing to move forward (yay) and my 9-5 work deadline and accreditation audits are over.  I  can finally breath a sigh of relief.   I appreciate you guys for sticking with me and hanging in there while I was on this unscheduled hiatus.    Timeouts are a gift and I am so glad to be back now.  Wouldn't you know the week I come back from my break it turns out to be a short holiday week? 

The weather has taken a dip in the evenings and that clearly means time to pull out the sweaters and boots.  I love how fun it is to pull together an outfit that is so easy to dress up with a few statement pieces of jewelry.  This leopard sweater had been a great addition to my wardrobe and I think I actually own four more in a variety of different styles.  From cardigan sweaters to loose styles like this one, you definitely should own at least one great leopard sweater.  These booties are so comfortable and I wear them with jean and dresses.  You need to snag a pair; I love the brown leather too.  They are currently on sale and I know they will sell out.
