I am beyond ready for the weekend! This has been a really great week, but tiring! I am ready to just relax and unwind a bit.
A few years ago I started a tradition where I start -shortly after Christmas- putting money aside each month and then treat myself to a shopping trip in June as a birthday present to myself (that I don't have to feel guilty about!)
Today's post features two pieces I got on said trip. The pleated skirt and the dramatic necklace. I found the skirt first, at H&M and was instantly drawn to the rich color. In the dressing room I was already thinking of ways to pair it.
Later in the day, I came across this dramatic Jessica McClintock necklace and it was also love at first sight. Right away I knew I would pair it with the skirt, the contrast in colors would be perfect! I was not disappointed. The blue top was a fun surprise though. I tried them together just on a whim and ended up loving the whole look!
If you follow me on Instagram, this look maybe familiar. I wore it last Saturday to the grand opening of The Designer Square. My friend and one of the most ambitious people I know, designer Tygerian Lace created a new way for clients and designers to interact via this boutique. It hosts numerous other designers; of course Tygerian Lace, Flow by Tara Davis, Felicity by BDPD ECRU, Emerald and Onxy (I've seen her designs several times and they are incredible!), Skyler James and KISH by KISH just to name a few!
The store offers custom, handmade pieces from designers as well as alterations and uplifts.
I met Tygerian Lace a few years ago and did a shoot for her once as well. Her designs are stunning and always leave me in awe. But she works hard and is always taking on new ventures. Not to mention she is one of the kindest people I have met. I definitely recommend checking out the Designer Square any chance you get!
Thanks so much for reading!
Have a great weekend!
