Noonday Jewelry


dress // cardigan, old similar // sandals // handbag // jewelry // sunnies

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).


Statement Necklace


sweater // jeans // shoes // necklace sold out, similar // handbag // sunnies // ring // bangle

I love a good statement accessory and this necklace is everything. I was kind of nervous when I ordered it because I never go for anything this large, but I fell in love immediately. I have been chomping at the bit to wear this and I have been waiting for the right outfit, this was it. There was just something about taking a pretty basic outfit and pairing it with this necklace that made me so excited. I can’t wait to wear this with some great t-shirt dresses when the weather warms up! How would you wear this amazing statement necklace?
