Stella & Dot Fall Line & Giveaway!!--CLOSED

Hello my lovelies,

I have a guest blogger today on Babblings of a Mommy--Laura Stenovec, and lucky for you she's a Senior Stylist for one of our favorite online jewelry boutiques, Stella & Dot!

She's here to give you some of her own personal fashion tips from the Stella & Dot fall line as well as providing a special surprise for one of my lucky readers!!

Dying to find out more?!? I know you are, so just keep reading....


Fall is right around the corner and the department stores are brimming with Fall fashions. I dont know about you, but this year Im not feeling like I have extra money to spend updating my wardrobe with the latest and greatest especially when a lot of these items wont be in style next year. Maybe the clothing trends of over the knee boots, jewel tone dresses and leather jackets arent very practical for your every day routine and budget either. Stella & Dot, though, can provide you with some fabulous, budget-friendly ideas to jazz up your wardrobe.


Charm Necklace or Bracelet

Whether you are showing off your childrens birthstones or your own personal style, a charm necklace or bracelet is an excellent addition to your wardrobe.

The also make fabulous giftswouldnt grandma love a necklace with her grandchildrens birthstones?

Best of all, once you have the necklace it is easy to add to it without spending too much money. I just added this whimsical leaf to mine.


Statement Necklace

If I am going to buy a statement necklace I want one that I can wear with jeans and one that I can wear dressed up. Meet Chloe and Claire at $49 each these pieces certainly fit the bill. I love adding the Sasha Flower Brooch of the Claire Necklace.

Want to splurge? This Metropolitan Mixed Chain Necklace is gorgeous. I wear it with everything from jeans and a black t-shirt to a little black dress.


Layering

Layering is great for a variety of reasons. Versatility is key when you are shopping on a budget and its great when you can layer your pieces to create different and new looks.

The Penelope Necklace looks great with the Gabrielle Citrine Necklace. I like this look with a cardigan sweater or anything with a v-neck. The Penelope Necklace looks great alone with anything. I throw it on with my yoga pants when Im running around town and dont have time to get dressed.

My moms favorite layering pieces are the Signature Dot Disk Necklace with the Charmed Life Necklace The Signature Dot Disk Necklace also looks great with the Starfish Necklace. The Signature Dot Disk Necklace can be worn long or short with these pieces, which just adds to its versatility. These pieces can be worn with absolutely anything.


Symbol

Symbols are all the rage this season. I just cant get enough of our Liv Multi Charm Necklace. I also love our Clover Key Necklace. The two look great layered together.

Owl Charm Pendant Necklace is adorable and has been extremely popular (it also looks great layered with our Gabrielle Citrine Necklace.

For the past year I have had customers ask me for a Bee Necklace. I never knew those pesky little things that sting you would be so desirable in the form of a necklace!


Stackable Bracelets

I love stacking bracelets. An armful of bracelets can take an outfit from drab to glam in a second. Below are some of the bracelets I like to stack.

Baby Flower Bangle

Signature Clover Bangle

Devi Bangles

Mira Bangles

Soiree Pearl Pave Bracelets (my favorite combination are the Champagne and Brown)

Vintage Twist Bracelets. I love wearing both the gold and silver together and stacking them with the Devi Bangles.
