Jewelry That Pairs Well with Donuts
now that i’m 28, i have a goal to look like i’m actually in my 20s and not in my teens and to me that means dressing a little more age appropriate. while i’ve been doing research on how to do this, i’ve discovered that most women in their 20s wear cute clothes and jewelry.
i’ve also found that many don’t eat a pb&j sandwich every day but i’m not going to change that (well, actually this month i am because my husband i just started the whole30).
the coat i’m sporting is an impulse buy that occurred in the hong kong airport, 20 minutes before our flight left. it’s amazing what a convincing husband and the pressure of not making it back to your homeland can do for a sale!
please appreciate my more grown up coat for a hot minute and then focus on my arm candy because i’m obsessed.
my friend mandi (we connected via instagram, i love the internet) is one of those fashionable 20-somethings. she’s always sporting amazingly cute accessories and the only accessories that i ever wear are my wedding/engagement rings and sometimes a silver bracelet. oh and my glasses. do those count?
not anymore though!she’s fantastic and we’ve partnered up (which to me sounds like we are either cowgirls or science lab partners) to bring the fabulous readers of the new wifestyle some amazing jewelry options! mandi works with chloe + isabel, a woman-owned company. the founder, chantel waterbury says:
It had taken me years to climb the corporate ladder and gain the skills I needed to run my own fashion business. I wanted to help them reach their goals, whether they were financial or skill-based. We can be her stepping-stone or her destination. Chloe + Isabel was created to be a brand people would love, and more importantly, an opportunity our Merchandiser could believe in.
i am all about supporting women who support other women in their goals and dreams!
be sure to like mandi’s facebook page so you can see all the latest jewelry that’s hot off the press (or wherever jewelry comes from).
more importantly, while you’re on that page send her a quick email with the secret code word “WIFESTYLE” and you will receive a FREE pair birthstone studs when you spend $50 or more!
be sure to send the email before you place your order so she can verify and add them to your order!
i’m no fashion blogger but i figured i needed to capture the bracelet in action and what better way to do this than with a donut, right?
i’m sporting the ‘palm royale multi-wrap bracelet’ that can also be worn as a necklace because who doesn’t love options?! you can find it HERE (scroll down a bit and then order it so we can have BFF bracelets). the packaging it comes in is the cutest too.
donuts were part of our ‘last meal’ before the whole30 and portland has another new, very hyped up donut place called ‘blue star donuts.‘
we of course had to try the “hard apple cider fritter” which was decent but i’ve had better apple fritters around town and i can say that because i’m a donut snob. however, any donut you get with the word “buttermilk” in it will utterly blow your mind. best buttermilk donuts ever.
anyways, back to the arm candy. be sure to check out mandi’s shop on chloe + isabel and look around because they have a wide variety of incredibly fashionable bracelets/rings/necklaces/watches/earrings.
once you’ve found your new bling of $50+, send her a quick facebook message with the magic word “WIFESTYLE” to let her know you’re a reader and get your birthstone earrings for freesies!
then come to portland after march 2 and we will go get donuts!
please do use these links as they are no higher cost to you but we do get ‘credit’ and then i might actually be able to get my sister a real birthday gift instead of just coloring her a picture. i’m telling you, 28 is a turning point for me to start being an almost-grown-up.
1) are you good at accessorizing with your outfits?
2) have you done the whole30? send me recipes! or join us!
3) tell me about your favorite kind of donut (give me any raised donut with glaze or chocolate and i’m happier than a dog with a stolen sock)
*i did receive this bracelet for free for review but all opinions and donuts are mine.
