Ever wonder what designers are talking about when they explain their designs in inches? As a customer how would you really know the differences off the top of your head. For now here is a handy chart to help visualize what we are saying! One last tip, 30″ necklaces and longer are always a bonus because you can double them up. Happy necklace hunting.

Now that airlines are charging more for additional luggage, it’s become even more important to pack efficiently. Our new motto is “travel light.” But of course, even if you’re bringing less with you on vacation, you still want to be stylish. And there are certain accessories you won’t want to be without on your next vacation to the beach, the wine country, the big city — wherever it is you’re headed off to.
We like to call it “utility” jewelry because it fits every occasion and every style. When you’re on vacation, you don’t need to pack jewelry to match each and every outfit. Not only is that unnecessary, but it also increases the chances you’ll lose something.
Look at the outfits you plan to bring on vacation with a critical eye, and then pick out just a few pieces from your jewelry collection. Sure, those peacock blue chandelier earrings make your eyes look fantastic, but if they only go with that one dress, leave them at home.
Some great example of Love of Pretty ‘utility’ jewelry would be:
- Gold Chain Hoops – They are versatile for almost any outfit in that you can dress up that special cocktail dress or even that stunning Little Black Dress or wear them on a daily basis with a plan tee and jeans or shorts. They will make any outfit of yours sparkle and shine.
- Silver Cuff Bracelet – A silver cuff is a GREAT choice for an accessory on any vacation because it literally goes with any outfit! And the best part is piece of jewelry is you can accent around an accessory.
- Sand Dollar Silk Wrap Bracelet – Your search for a colorful standout accessory is through! Jazz up any plain-Jane ensemble and get in tune with Mother Nature! A quintessential wardrobe must-have, the wrap bracelet’s sand dollar toggle clasp is hand-picked from a Florida beach, making each piece one-of-a-kind. Worried about a snug fit? The eye-catching piece of luscious arm candy is fully adjustable just by changing the position of the knot. How cool is that? And, the best part is you can choose ANY color silk wrap to wear matching all the seasons of the year!
- Citrus Splash Necklace – A multicolored beaded necklace is a perfect solution must have vacation accessory. With the multicolor tones and colors of the beads, it adds bursts of colors to any outfit. We just love the burst of color that the shades of Yellow Jade and Strawberry Quartz create.

Living in the mountains in Colorado it is a normal lifestyle to be extremely active 90% of the time. If you’re not hiking at 6am, going to a 90 minute hot yoga class or catching first tracks on a powder you…well you don’t really fit in!
With 90/10 guy to girl ratio sometimes you feel yourself just blending in with the men. Afterall us girls are living in the mountains for the same reasons as them and since their are so few of us sometimes mountain girls just like to feel tough, strong, and overall badass!
All this said spotting a new designer cocktail dress on a girlfriend or a pair of stylish boots was that much more fun in a small mountain town. Christina and Julie have always stayed true to their fashionista style while fitting in at 9000 feet up. I was SO excited to hear about their new business Tough Girl Tutu’s a couple days ago. These mountain girls are inspiring athletic girls to have more fun and feel pretty while they are racing and training……..sound familiar! Can’t wait to test one out.
Black and red combo would match or so perfectly with our signature coral wrap!
Second favorite style: HOT PINK!

As we still work our way through winter here on the east coast I like to take a little time out of each day to sneak on pinterest and peek at anything nautical I can lay my eyes on! It helps me very cheerful, warm and stylish! I recently just added a “Beach Cruiser Happiness” board to the collection as well. For those of you who know me best know that my sunflower covered bright yellow bike is my prize possession.
