Firstly, thank you so much to Katrina for letting me post on her blog, I have been a reader for a while and thoroughly enjoy her content. Secondly Hi, I’m Megan, I normally blog over at www.emmiegee.blogspot.co.uk. So, the post!;
Gold and silver; the classic and chic colours when it comes to accessories. Here is pretty much all of my ‘precious metal (looky-like!) jewellery, I recently had my 21st birthday which bulked it out considerably! There is something about a gold or silver accessory that will just instantly add a certain je-ne-sais-quoi to whatever you are wearing. The majority of my pieces are silver as I think that is what works best with my colouring. If you want to see my collection of colourful pieces, then head over to my blog, where I will have a post on them. So, without further ado, I will take you through the pieces above (don’t worry, not all of them!!).
The Watch: This beauty was a very generous 21st +up-coming graduation present; it is a Raymond Weil, Geneve, rose gold and silver watch. It has a mother of pearl watch face with intricate diamonds set around it, it is this detail that I think makes it so exquisite! I wear this mostly if I am going for a meal or an evening event, but it also adorns my wrists for a lot of casual every-days. Never nights out though, far too terrified of something happening! It looks equally as lovely with an LBD as it does with my work uniform or standard uni get up of jeans and sweater.
The rings: These rings cover both the spend and splurge categories. The above knuckle ring came from Raspberrygrape a lovely online shop filled with unique little pieces. I think this ring gives a very ‘cool’ ‘boho-y’ vibe and love wearing it with my casual outfits. The leaf design ring has a gorgeous shape to it, and four little diamonds add a bit of sparkle. This is my ‘dressing up’ ring but I also tend to just where it on a daily basis as it is quite understated and elegant.
The earrings: All these earrings came from Topshop, I find it has some really good quirky and statement pieces. I actually have my ears pierced 6 times, but quite rarely do I wear earrings, especially all of them at once! When I do though, I love to wear odd pairs to add interest to a casual or grunge-y outfit. With dangly pieces I wear my hair up, usually in a messy bun or plaited up-do.
The bracelet: I’m sure you would have seen a Links of London or Pandora bracelet before, so I won’t bore you with them. Instead I will talk about the dainty leaf-like bracelet, studded with dainty diamonds, a perfect match for my ring. Yet funnily enough, the items were 2 different presents, from 2 different people at completely different times! This piece is gorgeous and intricate, the perfect accompaniment to a knock-out ‘posh event’ dress when paired with the ‘leaf’ ring and some simple diamond studs. The only issue with this kind of bracelet is that it’s a ‘mare to get it to sit right on your wrist!
So here you go! Let me know about your favourite jewellery pieces! Once again, a huge thank you to Katrina for letting me post on her fabulous blog.
