The Ultimate Preppy Earring Collection + A Giveaway!

Anatomy of the Perfect Earring Collection

There’s a certain je ne sais quoi to the perfect pair of earrings. The right ones will boost your confidence and elevate any outfit to fabulous status immediately! In my quest to broaden my ear bauble horizons I stumbled across St. Armands Designs on Instagram a couple of months ago. The designer, Kristina, is an absolute Dorothy-Draper-inspired genius! Her ability to combine fashion with comfort is a rare one indeed (how often have your purchased a new pair of earrings only to have them be so painful to wear you could not bear another second?!) considering her earring designs are lightweight without compromising an iota of drama and style! I started out ordering her darling Lida BonBons in blue ombre, after which I shared my love for on Instagram and in THIS blog post. Kristina was such a darling to contact me asking if I’d like to share with you her newest release, the fantastic Conquina tassel earrings! Of course I was delighted to and I am even more excited to announce that one of YOU, dear readers, will have the chance to WIN your very own pair of Conquina Tassel earrings!

Valentine’s Day Gift Wish List

Even more than my birthday and Christmas I love Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day of the year you can be beyond romantic and sappy and no one can make fun of you!

Here are 6 things that would make my little heart go pitter-patter if handed on the 14th!

DIY Christmas Gifts for Colleagues

Christmas Gifts for Co-Workers

While I may not have new, never-before-thought-of-co-worker gift ideas for the Holidays, I wanted to do something a bit less expected than ornaments or boxes of candy. This year I handmade a few items and tried to personalize the gift for each individual on my list 🙂

Christmas Gifts for Co-WorkersThis years gift ideas included:

  • Handmade beaded headband
  • Handmade velvet cross choker
  • Tee with handmade glitter silhouette (I used an image from social media of my co-worker’s sweet dog and created the glitter iron-on!)
  • Adult coloring book + colored pencils
  • Hand cream + facial refreshing spray
  • Graphic Socks
  • Graphic Tie
  • Wine bottle accessories (instead of gifting wine, and inevitably choosing the wrong kind!)
  • Cozy mug with hot chocolate mix
  • Gift cards (when in doubt let them choose what they really want!)

Christmas Morning Pajamas

I don’t usually have the time to put this much planning into Christmas for anyone, but I wanted to do something fun because I don’t know how many Christmases I get to have with this particular group of people before we move away from Nashville, and I will miss all of them so much!

Christmas Gifts for Co-Workers

Do you like to gift all of your co-workers the same thing (so everyone feels equal!) or purchase individual gifts depending on the person (with the hope you know them as well as you think you do!)
