So, without further adieu, Barette’s Guest Post – Golden Girl

Growing up I always associated gold jewelry with old people. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would buy or let alone pick out gold pieces to wear. After recently discovering my love for Jamie Wolf Jewelry, I decided gold was no longer for old people, but for me.

My first piece (outside of those bought for me as a young girl) was this beautiful gold and diamond pendant necklace that was given to me at my bridal shower. Not only am I a huge fan of diamonds, but the detailed engraving and clasp makes this a one of a kind piece.

Jamie Wolf herself gave me these beautiful earrings as a wedding gift, and they not only match this pendant necklace, but also all of my other gold pieces I’ve started to collect.

Crosses have always been a huge part of my life, since I was born and raised Catholic, and on my first communion my parents gave me a beautiful gold and diamond cross necklace. As my “something new” for my wedding day, my amazing mother surprised me with this beautiful gold and diamond cross necklace. Again, the details around the cross and clasp are stunning, and every time I wear this piece I find something new and exciting about it that I love.

Stackable rings are the new trend and must have in jewelry. Jamie Wolf is known for her stackables, and while picking out pieces for my wedding events, I saw these and fell in love. The two alike are gold and rose cut diamonds, and the other is gold and topaz. Its great because you can wear these all together, or one at a time….great for any occasion.

This ring is a very special sentimental piece to me. It was my late grandmother’s who was also a ballerina. I usually only wear this for special occasions, since its so precious and dear to my heart. I love the old antique setting which I feel makes it look almost like a stone set in leaves of a flower. I know that there is so much love and respect behind this ring, and I hope to one day pass it along to my child, like my mother did to me.

Gold jewelry doesn’t have to be fancy or even real for that matter. I am loving plated and fake gold for all my costume and fun jewelry. My husband surprised me the other day with this elephant necklace. I am slightly obsessed with elephants, so this couldn’t be more fitting for me, but I love that I can wear it with jeans and a T or a short dress to the club.

As I’ve gotten more serious about my love for jewelry, I’ve noticed that you should have fun with it. Each piece should represent you and who you are as a person. Better to have a few pieces that you can have stories behind, then a bunch you never wear.

Guest Post by Brittany & Brianna

These are my beautiful husband’s cousins, Brittany & Brianna. They are such amazing women and I’ve never had a dull moment with them. I love both of them and I’ve definitely adopted them as my REAL cousins!

We all share a love for Southern culture, style and fabulous fashion blogs! They have been so sweet to read my blog from the beginning and when I thought of doing a guest post, they immediately came to mind.

So without further adeu… I think you’ll enjoy their guest post. They’ve got lots of good advice and deals to tell you about!  They’ve also outdone me with their writing skills. I’m very impressed. Well, enough from me.. take it away Brittany & Bri!!

We are so honored that our wonderful cousin invited us to do a guest post – so thank you, Aubrey! We thought it’d be fun to show off some of our favorite accessories that we enjoy wearing, and that are very versatile. Aubrey does such a great job of showing cute wardrobe pieces and accessories that we figured this would be fitting! Being sisters, Brittany and I are very close and although we have similar styles, there’s always a slight difference in how we accessorize.

We both fell in love with the Kate Spade wallets, which were very affordable at the Kate Spade outlet store (Outlets are a great way to buy affordable designer pieces!). Brittany opted for the taupe, while I stuck with the black (my go-to color!).

We switched it up with the sunglasses, though. Britt has the black Burberry aviators, which she got for $50 from TJ MAXX – what a deal!! The gold Michael Kors aviators are mine, and although they were a bit pricey, I have definitely gotten my money out of them. Both of us think that the aviators seem to fit our faces well, which may be because they’re supposed to look great on any face shape –(LOOK AT RULE #3)–

Now for our eyeglasses, we never planed on getting such similar glasses, we promise! If you look close enough, you’ll see that Britt’s Ray Bans have a zebra print on the side of her frames, and my Jimmy Choos have a leopard design on the sides – this was not intentional! For being so different, we really do tend to gravitate towards the same designs, can ya tell? We love the black frames because they contrast nicely with our light skin and hair color, but let’s face it, everyone looks great in black-rimmed glasses!!

Now for our watches, you can finally see that we really are very different! Brittany has a nice classic silver Tag Heuer, which is absolutely gorgeous and it looks so great on her. I, however, am a big fan of leather watchbands, and opted for a patent leather Coach watch. There is one similarity, though – they’re both oversized “boyfriend” style with large faces, so when we’re not rockin’ our glasses, we don’t have to strain our eyes to see the time ;)!!

As you can see, we’re both very big advocates for accessorizing – you can really polish off an outfit with the right accessories. The biggest thing to remember is, YOU CAN GET NICE THINGS FOR CHEAP if you look in the right places. As you can see from Aubrey’s adorable outfits, places like H&M and Forever 21 are great to buy affordable accessories.

We’ll leave you with one last tip, bright colored accessories, whether it be a coral colored clutch or a bright teal bangle,  will make any outfit pop. So our advice to you is: go on and treat yourself to some fun and trendy accessories that will leave you lookin’ and feelin’ gorgeous!

Thanks for having us, Aubrey!!
xoxo, Brittany and Brianna
