In late June, my husband’s aunt asked me to a jewelry party. Of course, I had the initial reaction that we all do when invited to one of those events. Once she explained to me a little about the company, I have to admit, I was curious. I went not thinking that anything would really be my style, but I was wrong. I could have easily have walked out her front door with one of everything. The pieces were so beautiful and comprised of materials not normally worn. Then I learned more in-depth stories about the pieces, where they came from, who made them, and about the company. Noonday is a company that sources from third world countries and helps provide jobs, healthcare, schooling, and homes for those they employ. All the materials used are particular from those areas and have a story behind them. To me, this means that this is not just a necklace or bangle, but so much more. I may be wearing this necklace to work, but by me doing so I am helping in providing healthcare to women battling HIV and AIDS. How cool is that!? Beautiful jewelry AND a true benefit, how can you pass that up? I highly suggest you all check them out (click the jewelry link for direct access to website).

So this is pretty much the only color that I really ever wear. I know that I should start getting out of my comfort zone with colors, but I’ve tried and I hate it. It just never seems to feel right on me. I love the versatility of oxblood and the richness of its color. It is so flattering and always looks good. I’ve worn this color before in my all time favorite dress (here). Although I love the warmer weather that comes with Spring and Summer, I get so depressed thinking of the neon expectations that come with that. It’s the time of year when J. Crew becomes bombarded with flashy prints and bright colors and my heart dies a little inside. To me, serious dressing comes with cooler weather and I love that. Give me sweaters, distressed denim, and Chelsea boots all day long, but hot pink slip dresses? I’ll pass. Who knows if I will ever break this dark habit….okay, let’s be honest, I won’t.
