I'm Honey!

As a woman who has lived through many passages and learned through my larger than life experiences (positive and negative), I’ve discovered how to take a big empowering bite out of life.

Oh My, Ponder This:

These Are a Few of My Favorite Blings

 Best Shoes Women Over 50
I have to admit, I love jewelry. Accessories are one of my favorite ways to change my look. Plus, I am a big believer in the merits of classic style. And while some fashion silhouettes are eternally flattering and timeless, I’m always willing to experiment with a new cut of diamond 😉 But seriously, jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive to be chic.

Jewelry Can Be Sentimental

Admittedly I do have some high-end pieces, most of them given to me by my ultimate concierge, of course.

I’ve previously shared the story of how Shelly purchased me a bangle every year I was cancer free. By the grace of God, I’ve amassed quite a bangle collection. Needless to say, I am beyond grateful.

Jewelry Can Be Fun!

When it comes to costume jewelry, it should be fun in my opinion! What better way to experiment with style trends?

While I certainly wouldn’t call myself trendy — since I tend to embrace timeless style — I am a “yes” woman, meaning I say yes to new opportunities and new ideas.

Using costume jewelry to say “yes” to new fashions is an affordable way to refresh your look. What do you think?

Here are a few of my favorite “blings” for spring:

Spring Street Antique Finish Faceted Stone Statement Drop Earrings
This antique-finish gold tone pair of earrings make quite statement for just $14.97. You can purchase them here.
Rachel Zoe Sania Leaf Drop Earrings
If you find yourself inspired by Greek mythology, these dreamy earrings are a perfect match for you. Beautifully styled with just about anything, at $65, this investment is worth every penny! Snag a pair for yourself here.
Jules Smith Elysian Choker Necklace
If you know me, you know I appreciate a stylish choker necklace and this one is simply stunning. You can add one to your spring wardrobe here for just $95.
Ryan Storer Lily Gold-Plated Choker
This silhouette of a single calla lily would be lovely framed with a white silk blouse as a simple, yet elegant, detail. A bit more expensive, at $322, this piece is an investment, but its classic look will stand the test of time. You can purchase it here.
Hermès Festival des Amazones Enamel Extra Wide Bangle
As I mentioned before, Hermes bangles have a very special place in my heart. This stunning choice is 18k rose gold-plated and can be purchased here for $575.
Alex and Ani Birth Flower Expandable Charm Bangle
My last choice is this gorgeous, and affordable, option by Alex & Ani. The detailing just screams spring bling and truly captivates the essence of the changing seasons. You can buy one here for less than $20.

    I LOVE your wide gold and silver choker necklaces and wonder if you would share where to purchase them. If there are some “costume” copies as I’m assuming yours are the real thing, I would love to know!! Thank you so much for your kindness!
