It’s that odd time of the year again. Fall is fast approaching but the temperatures are still summer-like so what do you shop during this transitional period? Why jewelry of course! When it comes to jewelry I prefer to one, keep it local and two, buy quality so I headed over to one of my favorite jewelry boutiques, Grayling to find some items that will breathe some new life into my wardrobe. Katy Kippen and her talented team create the coolest, classic and cool jewelry that you’ll wear for years to come. Here is what I found and how I’ve been coordinating them.
Keep it simple
There is so much opulence in the trends this season so when it comes to my jewelry I’m all about keeping it simple, elegant with a touch of originality. I am obsessed with my Grace Swarovski crystal stud earrings and the Audrey necklace in ‘smoky’. It’s the classic take on the diamond stud but in a color that’s a little edgy. I wear this set together or separately and with literally everything. They are perfect when I’m in a rush and I have to throw and go but want to look put-together. Remember it’s the bow on the package that pulls a look together.
Classic, not classic
It’s always good to have something in your jewelry box that will never go out of style but makes a style statement. That absolutely describes these Capri earrings. I love the simple but interesting shape that doesn’t demand all the attention but it’s going to sit quiet either. I get compliments on these everywhere I go, which is a sign of a great purchase.
I’m all Rosy
It has taken me a season or two but I’m finally on board with all the rose gold. And I feel strongly that you might love it as well. What surprises me about the rose hues is they look good on just about anyone and they compliment every ‘it’ color of any season it’s paired with so you really can’t go wrong. The style of this Souk necklace is so organic, cool and statement making, I didn’t have anything like this in my jewelry mix which is a great sign that it’s needed.
Who doesn’t love a convertible right!? Designers have become so innovative and thoughtful about designing, you can find pieces like this Lyra convertible statement necklace at Grayling that converts from one style of necklace to another making this piece beyond versatile for any wardrobe whether it be casual or business. This one necklace takes me from client sessions to date night in seconds, you can’t beat that!
And you know no matter what you buy from clothing to jewelry everything must fit you, flatter you, function for your lifestyle, make you feel fantastic and they must be friendly with no less than three items in your closet. This will guarantee that your purchase will be worth every penny.
