did you ever see the movie “how to lose a guy in 10 days”?  they had a slogan for a jewelry company that referred to their jewels as icing – so clever!  and when i’m getting dressed each day, the finishing touch is always the jewelry, the icing on the cake!


i recently got the prettiest boxes of “icing” ℅ stella & dot.  i had been eying that bracelet, and the other 2 items were bonus treats!


you guys.  the bracelet.  it is even better in person!  it is this chunk of gorgeous wrapped around my wrist – so solid, yet very comfortable.


i have worn this bracelet so many times, and i love the different ways i can wear it.  you know i’m a lover of contrasts – this sparkly bracelet looks great even with jeans and a white tee!


this aqua is my color.  you know, we all have a color that always works.  this is it.  and, i love that this necklace is adjustable.  i’m wearing it at its shortest point, but i’d wear it longer with a deeper neckline.


and these studs?  just the perfect pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

would you like a pair for yourself?  and how about that sweet aqua ombre somervell necklace, too?!

these pieces of stella & dot jewelry are great quality, definitely some of the nicest pieces i own!  just enter the rafflecopter giveaway below…

what i wore

{sorry about the late posting!  i got a little distracted watching jimmy fallon!}

welcome to what i wore!  join me each week as i share my weekly outfits – just real clothes for real women.  i don’t have a huge shopping budget and i don’t dress super fancy, but when i get out of my yoga pants and into real clothes, i just feel better. another note: you will see me wear the same things over and over again.  i only have so many items in my closet so i either stick with what i know works, or i try a new combination with old items.  looking through the hundreds of other women who link to the bottom of this post helps me come up with outfit ideas. another huge help: pinterest!  i compile lots of outfits on there that i think i could pull off or have most of the components of it.  super helpful.


i know lots of you only visit my blog on wednesdays to link up, but hop on over to this post where i shared some fall-inspired outfits i put together from forever21.com and target.com while window shopping, just for fun!  i think you’ll like it ;)
