Do you have a jewelry box? When I was a little my grandmother gave me a silky gold covered box and filled it with her priceless gems and costume jewels. It was the best! I would play dress up and treated my jewels like prized treasure. Depending on my mood, I would layer on the gaudiest pieces like some sort of ancient Cleopatra - charming and dishy - in my head to toe clip on earrings, strings of pearls, chokers, and charm bracelets. (Oh wait, that was yesterday!) 

Truth is I still love to get dressed up and play with jewelry, but my jewelry box has changed a bit. It still contains priceless pieces mostly with sentimental value. The one-of-a-kind gemstone Rob gave me our first Christmas together. A little bar necklace from Noah that reads "mom." A few favorite vintage pieces. A beautiful ruby ring from my grandmother. 

Recently, I have started to collect more classic pieces and fine jewelry to one day pass down to my daughter, and even my son (for his future wife! Aw, omg I am crazy - lol.) They don't have to be diamonds and gold, but pieces that will remind them of me, hold sentimental value and withstand the test of time. 

So where does one shop for designer + custom jewelry, an experience, and expert advice? The best place in town is C Sterling Jewelers hands down! 

Family Owned

C Sterling Jewelers is a family owned and local business right here in Levis Commons! (They are located next to Fiddle Stix!) You guys know I love to promote shopping local. They have an amazing variety of gems, and an even better variety of price points. Their staff is super friendly {and fashionable} and as much as I love walking around Levis, or meeting up with my girl gang for brunch or wine nights, I love stopping into C Sterling to see the latest collections in person from designers like Kendra Scott. So while you might feel intimidated by fine jewelry - this is a family friendly place. (Coco's has come with me - dangerous I know lol-  the girl loves to shop!)

You guys know I am always looking for vintage, but vintage jewelry shopping can also be a bit tedious and overwhelming. Walking into C Sterling, I love how bright, open, and inviting the showroom is. I think there is a common misconception that jewelry stores only carry diamond rings for weddings and engagements. Not true! C Sterling carries an awesome mix of designers. Pop in, bring the littles or a friend, and play dress up!  

You will find Kendra ScottMichele, and of course a fine jewelry, like Tacori and Forevermark.  Their showroom is cozy and inviting and includes local jewelry artists! (How cool is that!) 


KENDRA SCOTT

"You're a gem, and you're allowed to treat yourself like one!"

I love this concept! "Treat yourself' is nothing new, but you are allowed - and C Sterling is the place to do it! 

When I heard C Sterling carries Kendra Scott {and that I've been living under a rock - because I didn't know} I almost cried. LOL. I just purchased my first pieces and I am SO in love! (See below!)

Sivan Choker Necklace

Petunia Ear Climber

Kendra Scott is SUPREME down south. My sister Kelly lives down in Lexington, KY and told me about Kendra and her jewelry line and all her charitable giving back, but I rarely order jewelry online. I didn't think anywhere around here carried Kendra. I like to see my jewelry on, feel how heavy it is on my ears or neck, and often have a specific outfit or occasion in mind when adding to my jewelry box

What I really love about Kendra Scott is that it's style that gives back! In 2016 Kendra donated more than 75,000 pieces of jewelry to 3,500 local and national organizations. Plus she started out as a mama with a dream. 

"As a young mom, I began designing my first jewelry collection 15 years ago with $500 and a dream. I wanted to build a fashion brand that put family first, pushed the boundaries of fashion and quality design, and above all stood behind the importance of giving back." - Kendra Scott

Elyse Ring, Alex Drop Gold Earrings in White Pearl

Not only are her designs affordable, and special, but it's jewelry you can wear everyday. Pieces you will want to save. It hits that sweet spot of looking elevated, yet still really goes with everything. I can't go buy myself a pair of diamond earrings, but I can go buy a piece of Kendra and feel just as special. It's affordable classic pieces with a high-end feel.

Kendra also makes a perfect gift for graduation, Mother's Day, birthday gifts, or a boyfriend/ husband could also make a great surprise with it.

 Denise Gold Statement Earrings in Pink Agate

I'd been looking for some new everyday pieces, and had been hunting for a new pair of statement earrings for summer. (Bright, bold tassels are everywhere right now!) Adding a little bit of thoughtful detail to an outfit can pull it together. I love how one piece of jewelry can add glamour to a basic tee and jeans or black dress. Have a wedding coming up? This is the place to look for a new set of jewels.  C Sterling helped me find the perfect pieces, and has me wanting to own every piece of Kendra out there! 

Kendra also has a home-good line, and C Sterling carries her amazing candle collection! 


MICHELE WATCHES

With working full-time again, I also have been on the hunt for a new watch for everyday wear for work. Something about a classic timepiece that goes with everything is one of my favorite accessories. My oversize gold watch could use an upgrade, and my wood watch is not dressy enough for work. 

Deco Sport

Iconic Michele watches are created with versatality in mind. These timepieces offer feminine and elegant look. Their Sport and Cape styles are an affordable line, and charms with it's wear-anywhere silicone strap. Both playful and luxurious!

The C Sterling selection includes diamond, hybrid smart watches and interchangeable watch straps.


TACORI

If you are looking for something extra special, C Sterling's Tacori line carries engagement rings, weddings bands, women's fine jewelry and men's jewelry for those big moments! Handcrafted in California, each Tacori design reflects the passion of the Tacori family for creating beautiful heirlooms to be treasured for generations.

You want fine jewelry that tells a story and Tacori not only signifies style but speaks from the heart. Everything from their beautiful design elements to their uncompromising dedication to quality and attention to detail connects you to who you love the most.

Tell Your Story

Rob and I have an anniversary coming up and I know where I will be sending him! {Kidding!} But ladies, feel free to send this post to your man if you need a little help in the *hint- hint* area. ; )

I truly love the variety of designs C Sterling has to offer when it comes to filling your jewelry box with stories that sparkle. It's about the little details, the simple moments. It's celebrating love, cheers-ing to an anniversary, a mark of a moment or a goal reached. Let your jewelry tell a story. The tale of how you got engaged. The way your significant other surprised you on your birthday. Maybe it was a "push-present" for your first born! Or maybe just a because... why not?! 

Jewelry from the big moments and the little ones in between is about a feeling - sliding on your special ring or wearing you favorite necklace. It can take you back to those moments. Let C Sterling help you make your next memory!

Shades Of Blush

If there is one thing I can't resist it’s a rose gold shade of dusty pink (and a badass feminist top.)

Besides black, white and navy, there are a few color schemes I constantly gravitate towards. Bold orange-reds. Vibrant or muted yellows. Cool shades of pale blue. And vintage pink. 

RJW_0510.jpg

Of course, these are the shades that easily mix and match – constants in any wardrobe that fall into the “neutral” category.  Then there are others that speak.

There are shades that can instantly lift a mood. When simply wearing a color makes you feel good, it better become a regular.

For the last couple years my absolute favorite hue to wear is blush pink. (I know, groundbreaking.) It’s become ever so popular among Millennials, but I love it because of this. Plus, it makes it easy to find. (Hence, the top, the watch, the beret and the shoes!)

Also, if you like my JORD Wood Watch (I've been lusting after one since Rob got his) you can get 25% off to any watch site-wide here.

When dressing, colors can represents an idea – or makes a statement on their own.

Dusty, pale-pink a symbol of romantic love. Maybe it’s a matter of opinion, but in color psychology pink is a sign of hope. It’s a positive, full of warmth and comfort. A color of feeling. Youthful. Feminine. It can read playful, cute, or charming even, but I have come to find it also represents a strength --a banner for the power of female.

My blush femme tee already feels like an old trusty friend. I remember growing up my favorite shirt was a sort of ugly üuber soft worn-out baseball tee of my dads. That's what this reminds me of. Even though this babe is new, she is a plain pink power player full of nostalgia. It’s my favorite on rotation right now. Women, you know what I’m saying. I am all about lifting up my fellow females. She is a shout out to my suffragists who fought before me for their right to vote, and advanced causes for birth control, civil rights and economic equality. The fight we are still fighting. We need gender equality, protection for immigrants, minorities, LGBTQ rights and access to women’s health services, and so much more.

Maybe it’s in my color, but it’s also in my persuasion.

Pink speaks softly. Clearly. Loudly. Strongly. 

Speaking of pink, did you notice the subtle embroidery below my jeans pocket? I had to have these straight leg mom-jeans when I saw the hard-worn details. And raw-edge hems and if you get close enough you will know – girls bite back.

JORD Wood Watch

Jessica Wagner

The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

Engraving Memories With JORD

Ok guys, I am so excited to share this awesome timepiece giveaway just in time for Father's Day

JORD Wood Watches and I have teamed up to give away one $100 gift card towards a watch of your choice! Just for entering you will receive a $25 credit to their website. It's a win/win! Free money babes! Gifting one of these special watches is sure to gain you brownie points with the men in your life  - whether it be a husband, fiancé, boyfriend, brother, or father.

When JORD  (pronounced YODE) contacted us, we immediately fell in love with their DOVER Series - Olive & Acacia ( here) for it's light color, steel face, deeply grained acacia and velvet olive wood. JORD makes luxury, one-of-a-kind wooden watches and uses raw materials - which gives their timepieces a natural and refined design. We also felt they looked very "hipster" which is the method we use to judge most things. The more hipster the better.  :)

Besides looking dapper on the wrist, this watch looks SO cool up-close! You can see the inner mechanics through it's open-glass face view. Modern and simple - my favorite combination when it comes to style (and my man.)

JORD offers custom engraving and sizing, and we took advantage of both. Rob's watch arrived and fit perfectly. The watch comes in a gorgeous wooden box, with a little drawer for extra links and finishing oil for care and conditioning. You guys know I'm all about presentation - this watch just reads fancy! Everything from the packaging, to the engraving, colors and craftsmanship was above and beyond. It would make a spectacular gift for upcoming Father's Day, anniversary or just because. They also make women's watches, and I have my eye on this CORA Series - Zebrawood & Rosé one here (hint, hint Rob!) You can shop their women's selection here.

For our personalization we wanted something fun - (I told you guys this is the year of the funk!) While I love the idea of meaningful dates and initials, we wanted this watch to remind us to keep our hearts and time with wanderlust and adventure - in life, parenting, and love. Our engraving reads:

 "a pirate's life for me"

This JORD watch now carries lots of extra memories, as it ties into a few different aspects of our lives. 

First off, it's fun right?! Haha - so there is that, but there are also a few other reasons we love this phrase. It's connected to Rob's lifelong membership to "the lost boys" (a group of guys that are  the best friends a guy and gal could ever ask for.) They rock. Good friends are the best.

Second, while most of you are probably familiar with this song from Disney's Peter Pan, (yo-ho!) it also carries connection to Rob's life passion - which is photography and his business name - Man Overboard Images. 

Lastly, Rob is a the most wonderful father to our two kids, Noah and Coco. He is the fun in this family, and I like to refer to him as the captain of this ship. (He deserves 100 watches!) It's pretty amazing to get to be with the love of your life. In our minds, becoming a parent doesn't mean you have to grow up - it means you get to become a kid again. We are always in awe - watching the kids experience things we have done hundreds of times before - but experiencing it now through their eyes. Here's to making those precious moments count.  

I love a good watch, and a classic JORD timepiece makes a great gift for any occasion. Choose a unique design, and add in your own personal message of love they will carry with them forever. 

Father's Day will be here before you know it! This is the perfect way to give something special to that person in your life.
