Perfectly Patterned

As the statement jewelry trend has gained such popularity, I’ve started noticing that solids become increasingly prominent across the fashion scene. When cold temperatures force you into knits and sweaters, splashy jewelry is a wonderful way to accessorize. But with spring just around the corner, I’m craving less clutter, and more bright colors and bold patterns.

You could even add a yellow silky spaghetti strap and sandals for dinner with friends.

Therein lies the beauty of patterns – let them be your statement, and save the heavy earrings and necklaces for colder weather. It’s all about light and bright this spring!

Love from Texas,
