Kendra Scott - Jewels


"A Girls Best Friend" 




Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential. Just what is the right amount?  Well, here are a few Forever Chic Style rules at your fingertips:

Basic Rules: 

  • Wear either real or faux jewelry.   
  • Engagement ring is always real and forefront. 
  • Ring on both hands.  It is best to limit two rings per hand.  Maybe engagement ring on one and two on another. 
  • Winning Combinations:  
    • Long earrings, no necklace, rings on both hands and one wrist with bracelet or bracelets. 
    • Stud diamonds or stud earrings, long chunky necklace or several strands and rings on one or both hands.   
    • Long earrings, short necklace and ring on both hands or just one. 
    • Diamond Studs - Either faux or real.  No one can tell the difference.

Tips: 

  • Less is best. 
  • Twirl around before leaving the room.  If jewels are swaying and glittering everywhere - you have overdone it. 
  • Long earrings and long necklaces make the eyes stray down. You want eyes to remain up and  highlight your face. Stay away from this combination. 
  • When traveling abroad - leave engagement ring at home.  In fact, all real jewelry should be left at home.  Why tempt fate with the real deal when faux is exceptional. 


My new favorite jewels are anything by designer Kendra Scott.  Here are my picks for now and the rest of 2018.  Have fun.

Pleasure for You


"A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles"
Each day is a gift and being grateful for your life, your home, your friends and family is enough.  I find writing everyday about what I am grateful for in 2020 provides contentment and peace.   The Five Minute Journal as mentioned in previous posts, is a must-have for all of us living through the year 2020.  It is a wonderful way to start and end your day.  Millions of successful people take the time to remind themselves of their blessings.  Of course, shopping for yourself, within a budget, can create brightness to any day.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Three - Jeans & Tops

The Perfect Combination


Since we no longer are attending events that we enjoyed in 2019, our needs for formal wear is not a priority this year.  However, I do believe in dressing up daily with a flattering top or a bit of color for a lift of hope and cheer.  What I have found refreshing as of late, is the ability to visit restaurants and eat outdoors.  Everyone seems upbeat, happy and joyous to be participating in the simpler thrills of life.  The women have taken time to look lovely and are sporting pretty clothes.  After all, our beautiful pieces are just waiting to be worn.  
Additionally, the new norm for most is working from the home, which is a significant change for everyone. Thus, a great pair of jeans and a beautiful top will look and make you feel professional.  It is important to dress for success even if you are in your office or at the kitchen table.  Fix your hair, put on your makeup, and add accessories.  Why not look your best?  You are a powerful woman.  Anyone in busin…

For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale.  I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Salehas been an exciting event for me.  Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot.  No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.  
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible.  As we all know, when the virus appeared, every…
