I love spring-cleaning. LOVE IT. Is that weird? I don’t care.
One of my favorite tasks is going through my closets and drawers and “purging” things I haven’t worn in awhile to send to Goodwill, or a lucky friend who happens to share my size and style. It just feels good to make room for all of my (inevitable) new purchases.
My wonderful mother is a teacher, and this week is her Spring Break. We celebrated with an afternoon of shopping and a seriously delicious dinner at Harvest. If you live in the area, get over there soon to try out their new seasonal menu.
This week’s Friday Favorites: All of my new spring jewelry!
First up, this ridiculously gorgeous bracelet and necklace set from the Loft. I am SO excited to wear these all spring and summer – despite the hint of light pink, the entire set is neutral enough to compliment literally anything. But the best part? The tiny magnet bracelet actually fits my weirdly thin wrists. Boomshakalaka.
Okay, this technically isn’t a new purchase, or even a purchase at all. This Olma Pratt beauty was a gift from my wonderful boyfriend, who added it to his My Habit shopping cart after he noticed me coveting it. So I’ve had it for a few months, but I think the subtle gray color will be perfect alongside my favorite light pink jeans. Oui? Oui.
Stop. I can hardly even look at this Banana Republic bracelet without tearing up. I know I briefly mentioned my trip in this post, but I studied abroad in Rome in 2010 and I’ve been nostalgic since the moment I stepped off of the airplane coming home. Those were a few of the best months of my life, and I am so excited to have a (gorgeous) daily reminder of my second favorite city in the world.
Despite my infamous impatience, I somehow managed to save the best for last. My lovely friend Maura recently opened her own Chloe + Isabel boutique and had a giveaway for her Facebook fans. Guess who won these STUNNING Sand + Sky Studs!? Me, me, me!
I cannot WAIT to wear these beauties – so much so that I think I’m planning my Easter outfit around them : ) Head over to Maura’s shop – she’s got a ton of fantastic, affordable pieces for sale, and you can get 30% off of select items through April 6th!
Where do you buy your jewelry? I’m always looking for unique items!
