Ah, sparkle and pretty shiny things. I’m such a sucker for anything that falls into that category. Maybe it’s a Libra thing.

I recently received this beautiful delicate necklace from a friend and let’s just say, I wear it a lot. That’s usually what I tend to do when I love something so much, and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it! I’m pretty sure this will be my go to necklace for the next few weeks. It goes with everything and is a perfect match for sweet and delicate little Spring and Summer outfits.

The necklace is made with Swarovski crystals { swoon } and I’m being such a girly girl about it! Not even kidding…estrogen levels are through the roof! It kind of looks like a twist on the one that Carrie Bradshaw wore in the last episode of Sex and the City, right? Super fans like me will know what I’m talking about. Which is so crazy too because I actually just found a gem of a skirt in pink tulle that looks like the one from the show open! Can you tell that I’m eternally obsessed with that series?

{ I’ll post details about the pink tulle skirt on Instagram soon }

Anyway, my friend Julie has been making her own jewelry for 19 years, since before we even met. I’m excited to wear one of her pieces and show my support. You can find more beautiful hand crafted designs in her Etsy shop to get your own unique piece of jewelry. There’s a nice variety of earrings, necklaces and bracelets…all handmade and beautiful! You can’t ever go wrong with a nice piece of jewelry.

This is a close up of my necklace…heeeeeeee!!!
