060: a spot of tea
Sometimes when I start picking out an outfit, there's a piece that I already know I want to wear FOR SURE. I'll usually base all my other pieces around that one item, like that certain pair of new shoes or a cute new skirt. Now, it's very rare that I'll base my entire outfit around an accessory, but I just got something special. As I was saying on Saturday, my friend Candice gave Sam & I some cute gifts from her line of jewelry & I really wanted to show off what she gave me :)
vintage dress from my mom, floral cardigan from zara, straw fedora from spring, litas by jeffrey campbell, necklace from the candy shoppe
This miniature teacup necklace features the most adorable porcelain china cup & plate. The tiny classic floral design really had me thinking of english tea parties, so I wanted to dress feminine but modern & made sure to complete my look with a straw fedora :) & to maintain my edginess-- teased out hair, smoked out eyes & my litas.
What Candice gave us:
a teacup necklace for me, a teapot necklace with spoon for sam,
& two custom cupcake rings that actually smell like vanilla & chocolate!
Candice makes a lot of tea-time & coffee-time inspired jewelry, which is pretty much our jam. Sam & I are major coffee & tea addicts, so we don't just love to drink it, we love all the accessories that go along with it (we need a new loose leaf tea steeping device badly! lol). What's your caffeinated drink of choice? Coffee, tea, espresso, latte ?!
ps, free mcdonalds coffee all day everyday this week! :)
pps, we have an awesome ~surprise~ for you tomorrow. be excited, ok?
