EVERYONE LOVES A GIVEAWAY

Happy Friday! What better way to celebrate the weekend than with a giveaway, am I right? I’m so excited to finally host a giveaway, and I’m even more pleased to be partnering with Plum Boutique to do it! It’s always great to team up with other small businesses, but especially one located in my college town of Waco, TX. Sic ’em Bears forever. I’m actually jealous of what y’all have the chance to win: a huge Capri Blue candle that smells like actual heaven (tropical fruits & sugared citrus), and some gorgeous stud earrings from Everlasting Joy Jewelry (another Baylor alum business!). Pop on over to my Instagram, which hello, you should already be following, to enter! That’s also where you’ll find the full contest rules and all that fun stuff. Good luck and have a fab weekend y’all!

Helloooo and happy September! Not only is it my birthday month, but I’m also heading out to Philly and NYC in a couple weeks for a wedding with my boyfriend! I’m jazzed to get to know his family and also the city of Philadelphia! If y’all have any recommendations on fun spots, shoot me an email. Today, I’m talking about Rocksbox! I first heard about this awesome service a few months ago via Instagram and I was over the moon when they emailed me to partner up. If you don’t already know, Rocksbox is kind of like old-school Netflix, but for designer jewelry. After you take a fun little style assessment, a stylist will send you three handpicked pieces. You have the option to keep one or more (for an insider’s price) or you can wear them around and send ’em back in exchange for a brand new selection! You can do this as many times a month as you want, for just $19. I think this is such an awesome concept, especially for college girls (hello recruitment!). I’m always so hesitant to spend a lot of money on trend or statement pieces, because I just don’t get the wear out of them. God love ya, KScott, but I’ll sink that $200 into a Yurman, thank you very much. Rocksbox basically affords you a rotating jewelry wardrobe featuring brands like Loren Hope, Gorjana, House of Harlow, and yes, Kendra Scott. It’s a fun way to “try before you buy” and even step out of your comfort zone a bit, style wise. It’s risk free shopping, y’all!

I’m not one for subscription boxes, but I’m seriously so obsessed with Rocksbox and you will be too! Click here to get your first month FREE or just enter code 10thandjamesxoxo at checkout!

SILVER SERVICE

As I’m sure you’ve seen, boho with a side of 70s is back with a vengeance. Along with these trends comes silver jewelry (shoes too!) and I’m actually pretty excited! There’s something so effortlessly chic about silver and I’m also all about the turquoise that goes with it. I think of John Hardy/David Yurman ads where the model is laid out on a beach or tousled bed with bangles up to her elbows – the ultimate in casual elegance. Channel that look in your everyday life with bracelets, rings, and earrings like those above. I love it piled on thick, especially for summer, with shirtdresses or even just a bikini. I hope y’all have had a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Weekly Wishlist

Hi! I hope everyone is surviving Monday! Lately, I’ve been in a really spend-y mood and I’ve been online shopping a little (a lot). Most recently, I purchased this basic black cross body, and finally: a Tory for Fitbit wrap bracelet. Add my Chicago weekend to the tab and yeah, I need to stop spending. I’m trying to keep my wishlist light, but here’s a few things that have caught my eye this past week!

Life Recap

Hellooooo! Sorry I’ve been such a flake these days! This past week has been a whirlwind and I’m just now catching up on life! A few days out on the town and your body starts to hate you, I swear. I spent the weekend in Chicago with my best friend, Gabby (aka the brilliant person who named this blog), and our boyfriends! It had been a year since I’d seen her, so it was a much needed reunion. We basically just sketched around town for a couple days and it was the best. On Saturday night, we took in game 7 and celebrated the Blackhawks’ win. Y’all probably could have guessed I’m not the sportiest gal but I got pretty fired up along with everyone else in the Windy City that night! I forget how close/easy of a trip Chicago is for us Madisonians, and I definitely want to spend a few more weekends there this summer. I surprised myself this weekend and didn’t shop too much, which I’m sure came as a relief to my poor bank account. I did, however, pick up this little number on the last day of the Nordstrom sale! I’d loved this BaubleBar gold tassel strand online, so when I saw it in person, I knew it was meant to be. It’s a really fun piece for summer and is a nice deviation from the typical single tassel necklaces we’ve been seeing. It’ll also be a great necklace for layering, if I feel so bold haha. Unfortunately, I can’t find it online (and on sale) at Nordstrom, but it’s still available on the BaubleBar website, so click the picture if you’re interested! It also has a sweet little matching bracelet which might need to be mine as well. I hope y’all are having a happy hump-day!

PS: The coffee table book pictured is one of my faves. It’s not only great for inspiration but also really helped me outline my style. Get it here.

DYLANLEX

From Kendall Jenner to Lady Gaga, DYLANLEX is everywhere these days. I think of this line as a mix between estate jewels and rock n’ roll. Known for big, layered, silver necklaces, DYLANLEX also has a variety of other bits and baubles. I love this ring, it’s described as a tiara for your finger, so right up my alley. Typically, I wear gold jewelry and can be a little more reserved, but this necklace has me wanting to step out of my comfort zone. I like that it strays from the typical “statement” necklace in that it lacks the big, bright stones. It’s a nice change of pace. The above piece might seem a bit overwhelming, but picture it over a white t-shirt paired with some distressed denim. Just like that, you’ve gone from day to night. A necklace like this can really take a simple outfit to the next level.
