A Love Story with Julie Vos

Our latest pieces were gifted by Julie Vos, opinions my own

Hey friends and happy Saturday!

IMG_3078

Y’all know I’m an accessories queen and I can’t help myself when I see a pretty bauble. I’ve been OBSESSED with Julie Vos jewelry for years and started adding small pieces to my collection a little over five years ago (I would scour the website for hours during sales). I first heard of JV through my mom who started asking for pieces for her birthday, Mother’s Day, and Christmas. As my dad’s right hand gal for all things presents (otherwise known as his secret shopper), my mom has built quite the collection over the years. We even gift my Gram pieces, too. Julie Vos pieces are honestly amazing, from the dainty to the statement making, they’re quality pieces that you’ll treasure for always!

I’m not sure if you remember that my mom and I got to meet Julie and her team in NYC in December and I’m honestly so grateful to have built a great relationship with a great brand. We’re doing an IGTV over on Instagram this afternoon sharing our fave Julie pieces and our newest additions. Be sure to check it out!

Kendra Gives Back: Kids Meals Houston

With everything that is going on, I wanted to do something to give back to my community. So, friends, I’m partnering with Kendra Scott to get some money and food back to Houston!

For the next 48 hours, 20% of proceeds will go directly to Kids Meal Houston. Every day in Houston, 1 in 4 preschool-aged children live unsure of their next meal and this group helps make sure that Houston kids get a meal. I’ve personally packed lunches and decorated sacks for these kiddos. It’s a great organization and I’d be so happy if you joined me by shopping for a cause.

How it works: Use promo code GIVEBACK7135 at checkout! It’s that simple!

Plus, this includes fine jewelry!

The Special Stack

The Special Stack

Hey friends and happy Thursday!

I always do a lot (okay, the majority) of posts about my outfits, but I’ve never highlighted my arm candy/wrist stack for y’all or shared why these pieces mean so much to me!

I have loved David Yurman jewelry since forever. I liked the mix of the silver cable with the gold accents with pearls or different colored stones. My mom inspired and started my love for DY and I remember getting my first double x crossover ring and couldn’t believe I now had this beautiful ring in my possession! The collection has grown over the years and they commemorate special moments in my life

WS (130 of 242)

The ring was a Christmas present from my parents. The first bracelet was my grad school graduation gift from my mom dad, the x crossover bracelet was my latest addition (a treat to myself for my last promotion), the black onyx bracelet I bought myself after saving my money in grad school (plus some Christmas money from my Gram), and the amethyst bracelet was my 30th birthday gift from my parents and my siblings. I feel very lucky and am reminded of all the things I’ve done over the last decade. I do clean these with a dust rag and make sure not to rub on the stones. It’s kept the older ones in great condition!

Do you have any special jewelry that you’ve been collecting over the years? I’d love to hear!

Bag Lady

Hey y’all and thanks for stopping by!

Our feeds are so filled with designer bags these days that I thought I’d share my faves for every budget! Some of these bags (3/4) I most certainly didn’t pay full price for (SCORE)!

Under $1200

 

dsc04839

Gucci Disco Bag (shop here and here) – I LOVE this bag! It’s easy, casual, and perfect for a weekend grabbing some beers and crawfish. I got mine at Neiman Marcus on major sale (like under $600 major sale)! Neiman’s does a bag sale a few times a year and I just happened upon it.

$1200 – $1700

pearl-botanical-80-of-94

Saint Laurent Monogram Leather Clutch (shop here) – This bag was also on sale for a limited time when I scooped it up. I love the pebbled leather and the gold monogram. I always get a ton of compliments whenever I use it. I mostly use it for dressier occasions. If I’m not using it, I keep it in its duster bag to keep it in like new condition.

Saint Laurent Monogram Matelasse Leather Chain Wallet (shop here) – This bag took me a while to find. The washed light pink with gold hardware is a quick sell. The silver hardware is currently still in stock and I’ve linked it above. The chain is removable so it can be used as a clutch, as well. This pretty bag made my giddy with joy as I unboxed it!

$2000+

7516815776_img_0257

Gucci GG Marmont Small Pearly Shoulder Bag (shop here) – This has been my latest addition and priciest purchase to date. However, I did get it while it was 20% off for a limited time. I feel like the luckiest duck that I stumbled across this one in my local Neiman’s. This bag goes with absolutely everything, from ripped denim to lacy frocks. It has been a staple in my wardrobe.

I hope I’ve given you a little insight on how and where to spend your hard-earned pennies when you’re ready to take the plunge into designer bags. I’ve been working on this collection over the past several years and love each one individually for different reasons. You know when you get a dog and people say the pup picked you, not the other way around? I feel like it’s the same way for bags.

Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!

As always, thank you for reading!

Xoxo, Liza

These are a few of my Favorite Things

Hey y’all and thanks for dropping by!

I thought I’d share with y’all my latest purchases and tell you why they are my FAVE things rn.

The IT BAG of Spring

This bag was popular last S/S and it looks like this trend is back this season! Some versions of this bag can run you over $200, but this pretty below costs $82 and is SOLID. The quality is great and I can’t wait to style this for y’all.

 

Shop: Bag (here)

Selfie Queen Tee and Heart Hoops

This casual tee is the softest thing ever and currently on sale. I styled it with flares, these heart hoop earrings, and a red lip for a post with Kroger featuring some beautiful roses (you can check it out on my Instagram: @thatblonderebel)!

 

Shop: Tee (here), Earrings (here)

The Least Expensive but Most Chic Sunnies EVER!

Okay, these bad boys come in six different colors. I ordered the Matte Black and the White and they are so retro and BOLD. Best part? Less than $10!

Pretty in Pink

OKAY, but like, how Instagrammable is this top?? I will be pairing this with the white version of the sunnies above. I ordered my usual size, but with the length so short, I just reordered it in one size up. Perks? This top is the prettiest shade of pink and on sale for under $19!

 

Shop: Top (here)

Beauty is What is Underneath – Literally!

Say it with me now, MY SKIN MATTERS. The older I get, the more I am paying attention, and pouring more time into taking care of my skin. These two latest products have been amazing additions. The Honey Lip Scrub is only $6 and keeps your lips smooth and not chapped. The Pink Clay Mask is $8 and you can get four uses out of each package. My skin feels moisturized and brighter after each use. Best practice? Use each of these products twice a week for best results!

 

Shop: Lip Scrub (here), Pink Clay Mask (here)

These Happy Tops

If you keep up with me, either here on the blog, or on my Instagram, you know I LIVE for flowy tops. Butterflies seem to be a big trend this season and you might remember from this previous post, but I’ve always been into these winged beauties. This off the shoulder flowy number is so fun and I think with a big ribbon tied in my hair and the bamboo bag, it’ll make for a great look!

 

Shop: Butterfly Top (here), OTS Ruffle Top (here)

I hope y’all enjoyed this roundup of my favorite things right now and be on the lookout for some posts of how I styled these pretties!

Let me know if you’d like to see more posts like these!

If I Could Turn Back Time…

Happy Humpday, beautifuls!

It is the first week of October and I am so UNBELIEVABLY ready for some cooler weather. How about you?

I decided to spruce up the front steps of the house with some instagrammable mums and I love how they turned out. Now to add a Fall wreath and some pumpkins!

On a different note, I am coming to y’all with some awesome news. My collaboration with Jord Watches went great this past Summer, so I am back with another opportunity for you to win $100 from them for your OWN wooden watch. Very simple and easy to win! Enter the contest here! What’s great about this giveaway is that even if you don’t win, you are guaranteed $25 just for entering.

Jord Watches has recently introduced engraving to their watches and their boxes. How cool is my blog name engraved on my wooden box?! I am OBSESSED. You can even have your watch engraved, too! This would make a gift even more personalized. Check out the engraving options here!

A Jord watch is an addition to my Fall wardrobe that I am super excited about! As I start to wear darker tones this season, this watch will be the perfect transitional timepiece to add to my wrist party. I love the ebony wood with the metal hardware. Talk about naturally chic (insert all the hearteye emojis).

BTW, the contest will close on October 22nd! Make sure you hurry up and enter (scroll up  for the contest link)!

To Fall, to pumpkin spice and everything nice, and to chic wood watches, cheers to a great season, y’all!

Xoxo, Liza Mae
