Remember the bridal necklace I made for my friend H?  Here’s the latest update on her bridesmaids jewelry: I finished three bracelets, all white moonstone and silver spacers, with colored pearl or citrine accents.

H’s wedding colors are blue and yellow, and her flowers are going to have a mix of different hues.  So for the jewelry, each piece is unique and the jewels range in tone from pale yellow to sunny yellow to peach yellow.  There will be five necklace/bracelet sets in all, for five wonderful bridesmaids~  (What a thoughtful gift, H!)

One Piece, Many Ways

I have a confession…

Stripes puzzle me.  Especially horizontal stripes.  I know they’re popular, people love them… They’ve just never been ~my~ cup of tea (is stripe-phobia a thing?).  However, I’ve seen other people make them look pretty darn fabulous!  And when sweet, talented Audrey proposed a *one piece, many ways* challenge, I knew this would be the perfect chance to figure out the stripe!


We all know I love cardigans~  The first time I saw this in the store, I didn’t get it.  I thought the price didn’t justify the purchase, and I wasn’t sure I could pull it off.  So I waited, and visited it in the store occasionally.  It was finally on sale this weekend, though, so I took it home with me~  Now to make it work!

It is still summer here in Chicagoland, so I wanted a lighter warm weather look to start with

This was a good challenge for me: not only did I gain a new cardigan (yaaay!) but I figured out new ways to use a wardrobe basic.  This piece has a strong blue color, so I was glad to see it pairing well with my other blues.  Also? The stripe was surprisingly versatile, it worked well with a lot of my other prints.

Also?  If any of you have stuck with me since the last *one piece, many ways* challenge, you’ll remember I wanted to start looking for new accessories to incorporate into my lookbook.  I’ve started with my cobalt blue braided belt and a vintage silk scarf.  Still looking for some bracelets, a watch, and a necklace alternative.  (And shoes, of course, always shoes~)
