10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

This weekend is a very exciting milestone in my business—my two year anniversary! I feel so grateful for the opportunity to create things for you guys and run a business while also being home with my little family. It’s such a dream come true and I couldn’t have done any of it without all of your support and love.

You can read last year’s post about the first year here, and today I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the ways I’ve styled my favorite designs, as well as give you a peek at what’s to come for year 3.

While I love that the majority of the pieces I’ve designed are unique and limited edition, seeing some of these old photos makes me a little sad they aren’t available anymore! I guess I’ll just have to stay creative and keep designing new things 🙂 Now, a few exciting things to come in year 3:

14K Gold

As you already know if you follow along on Instagram, I’m releasing two 14K gold pieces in November this year. So many of you have expressed interested in higher quality metals that will stand the test of time, and I can’t wait to make these pieces available to you guys! I’ve partnered with Ann Williams from Evermore Co to create some bar stud earrings as well as a higher quality version of my favorite Addison Necklace. The items will each be packaged in burlap and wood boxes that are great for gifting or for storing your pieces beautifully in your home. Ann makes the pieces by hand in her Nashville studio and I’m so happy to be working with her—I definitely hope to do more together in the future!

New Packaging

While the white bubble mailers have been good to me, it’s time for an upgrade! This year I’m trying out some new packaging that I personally think makes it way more fun to get your item in the mail. Instead of flat, padded mailers your items will start to appear in logo-stamped boxes. Inside, you’ll open them to find a little thank you card from me, what you ordered, as well as some crinkle paper keeping everything right in its place!

An african partnership

This year I’ve been working closely with an amazing organization in Ghana called Touch A Life. My friend and college roommate Rachel Brown is the Development Director with them and when she saw some of my recycled glass designs she reached out to me with an idea to partner that I immediately agreed to. I’ll share more about the specifics soon, but essentially I’ll be donating a portion of sales from all of my pieces made with recycled glass from Ghana to Touch A Life. Yay!

As I said already (but really cannot say enough) THANK YOU so much for being part of this journey with me. Your kind messages via email and on Instagram never cease to make my day, and of course I smile huge whenever I get a new order. You guys are the best!!
