stacking up

Happy Wednesday everyone! My schedule has been so out of it lately with freelance work picking up, the snowstorm and life in general. This always happens in January but I’m getting back on track, starting with a very sparkly collaboration with James Allen — I jumped at the chance to style a few of their stacking rings! I love personalizing stacking rings whether it’s a piece to mark a special occasion like a trip or anniversary or an entirely customized ring. I liked wearing these thin diamond eternity bands stacked on one finger and mixing the gold and silver bands. On another note I, at long last, found my perfect nude nail polish. Is that something other people search for?! It’s from Deborah Lippmann called Natural Woman and is only available in this set so I’m hoping she makes a full size bottle at some point!

pinrose giveaway


A couple of months ago I got to try the new fragrance brand Pinrose. It’s so hard to shop online for fragrance, especially if you’re not quite sure the notes you are drawn to in scents. Pinrose takes a different approach by having customers take a synesthesia quiz that reveals their scent personality.The brand’s goal is to make fragrance more playful and personal. Each scent personality doesn’t equate to just one perfume, rather three that you can layer or alternate as you wish. You can purchase the recommended perfumes or start with a petal pack — 20 single-use sachets of the three scents in your scent personality.

Today I’m teaming up with Pinrose to give away a customized petal pack! There are seven ways to enter below — start by taking the quiz and letting me know your scent personality in the comments (mine is the charmer). The giveaway ends Sunday and the winner will be announced the following week. Good luck!

My current favorite necklaces are these delicate lariats, worn trailing down a v-neck tee or low-cut blazer. I think the right one can make your outfit look more luxe even if it’s really inexpensive. And for me it’s just gateway jewelry to a body chain — I want something super simple like this Maria Black body chain. I’d wear it the same way most of the time or layered under a cute cropped top like this one.
