There’s nothing I love more than a small necklace – it can add so much to an outfit while still remaining subtle and dainty. While I’ve previously mentioned that I’m a huge gold fan (gold over silver every day!!!!), I’ve included some silver pieces that I found simply too beautiful to not put in this collection of small necklaces.
Enjoy this little collection I’ve put together of dainty necklaces! Let me know which is your favorite in the comments below!





best of: floppy hats

Spring is almost here (FINALLY), and to me, this signifies the beginning of a season in which it is okay to wear floppy hats. I love floppy hats for two reasons: they protect my ridiculously fair skin, and I get to look like a diva while staying in the shade. With floppy hats, you can’t lose. Here are my favorites.

beautiful quotes

I’m obsessed with quotes. Ask anyone who knows me- I quote everyone, all the time. I’m also obsessed with typography. I love fonts more than I love my family*. So, I present to you a clash of two incredible things, and am beyond excited to show you the following beautiful quotes.

favorite shop: friedasophie jewelry

I am so obsessed with this Friedasophie Jewelry. Seriously. I used to make jewelry myself (surprise!), so I can say in all honesty that all of these pieced are amazingly crafted. I picked a few of my favorites and put them below.
Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 2.34.03 PMMy favorite thing about her pieces is how perfectly they walk the line between delicate and attention-grabbing, while never veering too far into either territory. Her usage of stones is amazing, too…check out that quartz and aquamarine! She’s got a great eye for design, clearly. Check out all of the jewels above (and more!) at her shop on Etsy, which you can find here.

favorite shop: earthbound trading company

Typically, when I find a shop that I love, I latch onto it, buy a ton, and tell just about everyone how obsessed I am with it, and Earthbound Trading Company is no different. The closest one to my house is about a 20 minute drive, and due to the fact that I grew up (am growing up?) in a town where everything is 10 minutes away at most, I consider that quite a hike. However, for Earthbound Trading Company, I would drive for an hour. Here are my absolute favorite products from them, in no particular order:


Okay, so if I’m being honest, their home section makes me weak in the knees, and I’ve certainly overindulged in this particular category in one of my many trips to their store. My bed is covered in pillows from them, I have all kinds of random things hanging on my walls, my desk is covered in their boxes and trinkets…it’s bad. But after looking at these pictures, I think you’ll understand why.
