I love when my accessories have a story.  Like this bag that I got last year in Paris (which now has come to the US in the same color), and these earrings that Jordan got me when he went to India for work.  I’m able to relive memories and specific times in my life when I’m wearing something with meaning.  I haven’t worn these earrings in a while and wanted to give them some love.  They’re yellow gold with navy blue enamel and rose cut diamonds (only my fave cut ever).  You don’t need to reserve your “good” jewelry for an evening look.  I like to wear mine time to time even with a casual look, like what I’m wearing here.  Consider this your reminder to take a good dig into your jewels and resurrect some special pieces.  And another reminder, when you’re on vacation it’s always fun to buy a little something that will take you mentally back.  Whether it’s Vietnam, Cambodia, Turkey or Paris, I love looking at and wearing my special purchases from each exotic place.

On a side note, my favorite Lilla P. twill joggers are back and come in new colors for the season.  They’re perfect for pairing with sweaters and combat boots!
