all that glitters

Holidays are the perfect excuse to wear a little extra sparkle. Whether this comes from glittery sweaters, gemstone jewelry, or the bubbles in champagne, Christmas celebrations are all about beautiful light.

This month (and just about every other month of the year), I am loving vintage-inspired jewelry.

Statement earrings to be specific.

Now let’s take a peek at some of my favorites!

Some of these darling pieces are recently purchased, and some really ARE vintage!

This pair happens to be one of my very favorites. They match just about everything, which is a VERY good quality in jewelry if you ask me!

Every Christmas, my sisters and I do a secret santa exchange to save a little money. These blue gems were given to me this year by my sister Chloe. I would say that she has expert gift giving taste, but I actually helped her out a little (ok actually a lot)…earrings66

The next two pairs are also blue and also from Target (I’m sensing a trend here).

These pearl and gold beauties are another vintage find. I just love how versatile and effortlessly classy they are!

Wishing you a lovely, light filled holiday with a little added sparkle!

The drive home from Christopher Newport on Saturday brought along a long lost friend. I’ll give you a hint: she’s white, fluffy, and the only reason for happy children on wintry weekday mornings.

Let’s hear it for SNOW, the perfect excuse for Ugg boots, hot drinks, and plenty of peppermint candy canes.

This morning, I braved the cold temperatures (with bare legs!) and did a little winter wonderland adventuring. Plenty of dashing, drifting, and laughing occurred in the making of these photos…

BeFunky_IMG_1015This beautiful vintage bracelet was given to me over Thanksgiving break by my grandmother. She used to wear it to college parties and sorority events, and naturally, I fell in love with it at first sight. BeFunky_IMG_100fdxgchvjb8

Wishing you a wonderfully white Christmas (unless, for some crazy reason, you don’t love snow as much as I do)!

Love,
