HOW WILL YOU WEAR LIVING CORAL?

Thanks, Pantone, for naming a color of the year - living coral – that is so fresh and flattering on everyone! The fun part will be deciding how you incorporate this trend-setting color into your personal style in 2019. No need to invest in an entire coral outfit though (unless you’re just looking for an excuse).

 

Instead, add this lush color to your closet with jewelry so you can easily pair it with neutral pieces you already own.

 

Black, brown, beige, navy, white— it looks fab with them all! And, although Pantone specified one shade of coral, you will have a wide variety to choose from, including blush pastels.

 

Here's our favorite coral tones, which one is your favorite?

1. Spring Fever necklace - fresh, bold and perfect to throw on and go!

2. Tahiti earrings - super lightweight, this statement earring is all you need!

3. Fiesta necklace - incredibly versatile, you’ll love the reversible styling and easy to add and remove pieces!

4. Sway necklace - if you can’t resist adding a little fringe to your look, you’ll love this colorful necklace with removable tassels!

5. Summer Chic necklace - from tees to sundresses and just about everything in between, nothing says chic like this multilayered necklace!

STYLE. YOUR. STORY.

Charms are a timeless staple and whether you want to design a meaningful keepsake or something with a bit of whimsy, the narrative and style are up to you! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it's the perfect occasion to design a personalized keepsake!

Creating a personalized piece is almost as much fun as eating cupcakes.

1. Choose a charm to engrave - they come in different shapes and sizes.

2. Personalize with a name, initials, or an inside joke. Feeling stuck? You can always opt for an inspirational phrase like love, hope, peace, strong, or blessed.

3. Finishing touches! Choose a necklace (long, short, gold, or silver) and add a few charms like your birthstone (or favorite color), stars, sports and more!

Our newest Hand Stamped Collection is gift-giving made easy! These textured matte charms have a timeless artisan vibe that makes them the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, graduations, Father’s Day, weddings and more!

A SIMPLE WAY TO SHARE YOUR FAITH  

How great would it be if someone simply asked you to share about your faith? You’re probably thinking, “That almost never happens!” But, jewelry is a simple conversation-starter that can spark from a compliment out in day-to-day life.   

For instance, you might be wearing one of Premier’s faith-based pieces like the Psalm 91:4 necklace. When someone compliments it, you naturally might say something like, “Thank you!” But don’t stop there if you want to share your faith because this is an opportunity to share why this piece has added significance to you and what it brings to mind when you wear it. And whether they smile and nod and move on or ask you for more info – either way you’ve planted a seed of faith or watered a seed planted earlier by someone else.

We never know if we are sowing seeds, weeding, watering or about to harvest. We simply share the difference God and Jesus have made in our lives and can rest knowing that the outcome is in God’s hands.

In a world of constant noise and chatter, it’s no wonder everybody is talking about simplifying! In fact, we’ve been hearing and connecting with the term so much lately, we made it our mantra for March!

 

So we started cleaning and purging and donating, and it felt really, really, good! We started enjoying the little things, like being able to open a drawer and finding something without digging and walking out of the house feeling put together in record time. It gave us peace of mind, and again it just felt good. 

 

Not sure where to start in your quest to simplify? Here are three easy ways you can start tackling your clutter.

 

1. Dedicate 10 minutes to your declutter your digital space. Delete your spam, drafts and empty your trash folder. Unsubscribe from emails you never get around to opening. Not us though, we’re friends!

2. Every now and then, take stock of the items in your room, bathroom, closet and kitchen and challenge yourself to find 10 things to throw away or donate. It’s easier than you think!

3. Create a style emergency kit for your car. Stash breath mints, a nail file, clear polish, lipstick or gloss and a pair of earrings in a make-up bag in your car. Next time your "I’m-not-getting-out-of-the-car" day turns into an "I-just-ran-into-everyone-I-know" kind of day you'll be ready! Need a little inspo on which earrings to pack? We recommend the Giddy earrings and these coordinating essentials!

 

For more inspo on how to simplify your life check out Emily Ley’s Simplicity blog or Marie Kondo’s new show, Tidying Up, on Netflix. And don’t forget to talk to your Jeweler about having a style consult! She’ll show you how you can maximize your wardrobe using essentials from your closet paired with the perfect accessories.

Time to get Giddy! 

Most of us are feeling so very done with winter and oh so ready for spring. So naturally, after binge-watching Marie Kondo's Tidying Up series on Netflix, we’re assessing our wardrobes for spring and letting go of what does not give us joy.

So often it’s the little things that bring joy. For example, that scented candle that reminds you of a day at the lake, those faithful black leggings you can’t imagine ever parting with, or your perfect go-to earrings that make statement yet don’t weigh you down.

If you have yet to find that perfect pair, you’ll definitely want to check out our Giddy hoops! You’ll love how the oversize styling (yet thin and lightweight) for a swingy on-trend statement! Contrasting faceted beads make a unique, eye-catching design and the two-tone plating offers versatile styling options. All that for only $29!

TRANSITION EFFORTLESSLY FROM WINTER TO SPRING

1. Light layers are key when the weather is cold in the morning and hot by the afternoon. You can switch to lighter trench coat or denim jacket for your outerwear. Layer an extra sweater or cardigan over your springy top or add a camisole underneath. A spring dress can be paired with a jacket and ankle boots.

2. Some wardrobe staples that transcend the seasons:

  • denim jackets and jeans
  • crisp white shirt
  • white tee
  • striped top
  • little black dress

3. As you consider a closet refresh for spring, here are trends that are still strong: 

  • animal print (especially leopard) 
  • trench coats 
  • utility jackets and jumpsuits
  • platform shoes
  • ankle boots
  • fringe and feathers
  • polka dots 
  • tartan plaids

4. Quick updates to take your year-round neutral basics feel like spring right now:

  • bright cami (try coral–color of the year)
  • a crocheted vest or cardigan 
  • a bright purse
  • leopard print anything

5. Jewelry updates to look for:

  • statement earrings with lucite or fringe
  • statement hoops
  • minimalist delicate chains to layer
  • wire rings and bracelets to layer
  • charms

Your Winter to Spring Wish List

The 70s bohemian hippie influence is stronger than ever for 2019 with swishy fringe, swingy tassels, throwback tie dye, plus vintage-inspired graphic and floral prints. If you’re a fringe-lover, tasseled jewelry is a quick and easy way to add a fringy boho vibe to any outfit already in your closet, from a classic suit to your weekend jeans and tee. 

Statement tasseled earrings like Waikiki make a great one-and-done addition–no necklace needed. Just add some rings and bracelets and you’re ready to go! Go more glam with our Fanfare earrings. Both Waikiki and Fanfare can be worn with or without the fringe!

The Glowing necklace and Glow earrings create a look that is both elegant and a little bit boho.

Really show off your tasseled necklaces by layering over a solid top. The black and gray tones of Tassel Town will instantly elevate your favorite black turtleneck. And don’t be afraid to layer with other necklaces–the 80s look of multi-layered necklaces is back! 

Visit us on Facebook February 8th at 11:30 am CST for more ways to wear and love your favorite tassels. Save the date!
