I love jewelry

When you are as accessory obsessed as myself, nothing sounds better than a line of jewelry that is both elegant and trendy, while still being completely affordable. Florida based I Love Jewelry is just that. The brand was built through Facebook auctions, but now everything is readily available on their site, including this elegant magnolia pendant which is currently on sale for $18!

Among I Love Jewelry's other offerings are a wide array of monogrammed pieces, including one that can be worn within this pendant - love!

As for the rest of my look, I was attempting to dress down my scalloped LBD with an oversized hoodie, but I'm not entirely sure I was successful. I find 'glamorous casual' to be the most elusive of all the styles. My approach has always been to go with a one to one ratio of dressy and casual items, but do you have any other suggestions?

  7. That's such a gorgeous necklace! I've been looking for a couple other pendant necklaces to round out my collection, so I'll have to take a look at them!

    I totally feel ya with the elegant-casual look, it's tricky to get the right combination! While I totally love this look, the scalloped hem + heels definitely make it air more on the side of elegant. Maybe play around with a more casual shoe? Or even your baseball cap that I love! Regardless, I still love this look! :)

  11. Not entirely sure you were successful? How can that be? This look is seriously brilliant - I've never seen a hoodie look so stylish! But then again, I have a slight bias because I am a huge fan of, well, every one of the pieces that you put together to make this look, so there was no doubt that I would end up loving it. But seriously - you really have outdone yourself with styling this hoodie. Just gorgeous.

  28. I love your necklace and will have to check them out! It is so pretty! I think the hoodie works well with the dress to achieve the glamorous casual look but you could also do a more fitted hoodie if you wanted. I think you look great though. I hope you had a great weekend!
