pear diamonds

Loving these diamond rings from etsy seller LexLuxe.  She's a girl after my own heart, with her hammered metal and gold and oxidized silver mixing!  I am especially obsessed with pear shaped diamonds right now, so I am totally coveting one of her east-west pear diamond rings.

fall wardrobe

I love this time of year! This is the one season that motivates me to run out and update my wardrobe for the change in weather. Here are my top must-buy items for fall:
1) Cords- I need to seriously replace my threadbare cords and khaki is the perfect neutral.
2) Sweater- Looking for more of a Parisian stripe rather than nautical. I love the wide boatneck on this one.
3) Scarf- I love this cozy, oversized scarf.  I could practically live in it!
4) Bracelet- I am looking for a chunkier bracelet that I can wear all season that will look cute when I push up my sleeves but not get lost in the heaviness of a sweater. These leather bangles fit the bill!

Do you read Elephantine's blog? She is remarkable! (I so envy the fact that she makes quite possibly the simplest, yet most beautiful, jewelry and has become such a success from it!) I love her posts about what to wear with particular pieces of jewelry.  Some people might think it is crazy, but any die-hard jewelry lover will admit they have planned an outfit, more than once, around a piece of jewelry!
