Pink Serenity

Shirt: Victoria's Secret
Scarf: Kohls? 
Purse: Coach, gifted, old

Becoming a stylist for Stella & Dot has created a whole new list of outfits to put together to showcase my new jewelry for my blog. It's been a good starting off point and a way to get creative with new outfits. I started this one with the earrings and I wore a bright pink lipstick to match. I haven't used this purse in awhile so it was perfect to add 
a bigger pop of pink to my simple outfit. 

I wore the scarf/earring/lipstick combo earlier this month with a black dress and boots to work, but didn't get a picture. That's what is hardest about blogging in the winter. I just don't have time to take pictures in the morning so I've decided to try to wear my blog-able outfits from Fridays-Sundays when there's more time to get an outfit pic.

A luxe version of an outfit with the Leona Pendant. 
I love all the neutral/ olive colors in this one.

Dress: Ross, old
Boots: Mervyns, old
Purse: Michael Kors via Macy's, gifted
Earrings: Stella & Dot Renegade, retired

This was my Thanksgiving outfit and a couple of my designer-informed aunts asked if it was Missoni. I wanted to wear something warm, dressy and comfy so this sweater dress was perfect.

Serenity Necklace

Shirt: Target, gifted from BFF
Cardi: Wet Seal $5

This is one of my favorite necklaces for Stella & Dot and so I was so excited that I earned it through an incentive with my very generous upline. Since I wanted the whole focus to be on the necklace, I kept the outfit really simple. I love how my other pieces complement but don't exactly match the necklace.

Dress: old
Blue bangle: Emerson Bangle
Gold Bracelet: Luxor Link

I've had this dress forever, but I still love the print. Even though it's still down, I tried to change up my hair a little too with a blue headband. 
Don't you love all my blue and gold Stella & Dot pieces..

The Leona

Sweater: JCPenney
Shirt: Victoria's Secret
Maxi skirt: Express, old
Necklace: Stella & Dot Leona
Sandals: Marshalls

Loving the bold look of the Leona necklace, it's so boho! It's a hand-cut labradorite stone so each one is unique. It has hints of olive green in the stone so I wore the maxi skirt to match. Before I chose this necklace, I thought of at least 8 outfits I could wear with this so I'm sure the Leona will make an appearance on my blog a lot more :)

(I've been pinned!)
