Fashion and diamonds and sparkle, oh my!
As you may have seen on my Instagram Stories, I am kicking off a partnership with Stafford Jewelers, an iconic Cincinnati jeweler known for their wide range of luxurious jewelry offerings. I’m thrilled to be collaborating because I feel that my style perfectly aligns with the Stafford brand and experience, so get ready to see some ongoing fashion and jewelry inspiration! Stafford Jewelers is also graciously providing Baubles to Bubbles readers with a generous discount if you mention me or my blog when you visit the store! You can receive 50% off non-designer pieces and 20% off designer jewelry (watches not included). This is a huge deal and would be perfect to take advantage of this holiday season!
To me, November is always considered the kickoff to the holiday season. All month, you’re dreaming about Thanksgiving and once the day comes and goes your mindset instantly shifts to Black Friday and the holidays. For November, I always like to keep my looks dressy and polished but still comfortable. As we get toward the end of the month I usually start to add in some subtle sparkle (this green skirt with metallic flowers) while still maintaining a classic touch.
My first look is perfect for the office.
It can easily be transitioned to a post-work dinner or get together with friends. I recently purchased this pink velvet blazer and absolutely adore it. Velvet is front and center this year and adding a fun shade like pink really makes your look pop. If you’re wearing a necklace that you want to be front and center a black top always helps it to stand out and pop against your outfit. The pendant I’m wearing here is 18 karat gold and features a pink opal, a round turquoise stone and .48 carat of round brilliant diamonds. It’s a stunner!
Earrings are always a must-have for me, and I love the look and feel of these 18 karat rose gold diamond button earrings. They’re very sparkly and make quite a statement but are lightweight and won’t weigh your ears down. It’s a win-win! Another jewelry item I’ve fallen in love with in recent years are rings. A ring is probably the easiest piece of jewelry you can add to your look and it can do so much to elevate your outfit. I love that this ring feels a bit edgy, so it’s perfect to spice up an otherwise traditional, buttoned-up look. I’m also wearing an engagement ring with a white gold oval halo setting and rose gold Hulchi Belluni stretch bracelets, with one bracelet featuring sliding diamonds.
My second look is perfect for a dressier night out or a more formal get together.
This white silk top makes a statement on its own with the balloon sleeves and adding jewelry to the mix makes it a lot more fun and whimsical! I styled this skirt with two different tops, which creates two totally different looks and helps showcase the jewelry in different ways.
I fell in love with this gorgeous diamond flower pendant that features white and yellow gold. It makes a statement and can transform any look. These 18 karat rose gold feather earrings are one of my favorite pieces I styled! These earrings are lightweight and have a ton of movement which really helps them sparkle. The rings in this look are also swoon-worthy. This white gold flower ring has a flower that can actually be spun around, which is a fun, unexpected feature. This white gold cushion engagement ring is so dreamy, as is this two-finger ring which features over 1 carat of diamonds! If you want something delicate to complete your look, I highly recommend this 18 karat rose gold bracelet with .88 carat of round brilliant diamonds.
