Did anyone see former Olympic All-Around Gold Medal winner Carly Patterson on NBC...she was sporting some fun Stella & Dot stuff including:
Medina Bib Necklace
Renegade Cluster Bracelet

Look who else loves cavaliers-

Looks like Jason Segel loves tri-color cavaliers too! Wonder if it's his dog or girlfriend Michelle Williams'?

One of my favorite things...

Stacked bracelets! If you follow me on Pinterest you'll know how much I love this look...it's pinned all over my style and accessory boards! Here's some of my fav combo's
I love that you can mix metals, styles, colors- pretty much whatever you want! I personally like to mix some high and some low-end jewelry. My current fav is a david yurman bangle, stella & dot bangle with a cool twine and washer bracelet (thanks whit).

Happy Monday XO

Tempest Necklace 2 Ways

Exciting news...The Fall 2012 Stella & Dot stuff is in! I perused the site and found some awesome pieces that are fun and can easily transition from summer to fall. As I was looking at all the new things I started picturing how I'd wear them and decided to share my thoughts with you all! These two looks feature the Tempest Necklace. The could be worn for a fun cocktail party or dinner/drinks with the girls. You could also wear this fun statement necklace during the day by dressing it down with comfy (but flattering) denim shorts and a flawy tank top...minimal makeup and you're good to go!

Me vs. Everyone Else

So as soon as I mentioned to a few people that I was thinking of trading my car in for a prius I got a ton of reactions...almost all negative. "Really?!" "WTF" "You'll look like a band geek". They all clearly don't share the same vision as me...I'm picturing myself in a cute black prius with a sunroof, an iPod hookup, heated seats for winter...and wearing my go-to cute outfits...something just like below:

All of my friends clearly have a different vision in mind...something more like this:

Anyone else want to weigh in on the Prius?

Gym to dinner

Gym to dinner

So I'm pretty sure that you've figured out that I work at a gym, which means that I'm pretty much in workout clothes all day. This might sound cool but it's a total pain in the ass when you want to grab a drink or dinner with the hubby or some friends and you don't want to wear workout clothes! Hence my handy stash of a scarf, flats and a light sweater/jacket. Add some bronzer, poof the ponytail and I'm good to go! (granted this is NH and super casual is totally standard...I mean I just got rid of almost all my cocktails dresses because I've lived here for 3+ years and never worn one!)
What do you do in a pinch to get ready to go out?

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

Sometimes we have hard-knocks. It happens to everyone - although it's hard to remember that sometimes. What I've learned (and continue to work on remembering) is that you take the knocks as you can and move on. Don't dwell on the negative, change your mindset and move forward with confidence (thanks Dad).

That said, there's still a little part of you that wants to take the low road and walk away with your middle finger high in the air, but let's face it, that won't get you anywhere (even if it makes you feel better for a day). Hold your head high and move forward - there are great things to come.

I'm mostly writing this as a reminder to myself that (although I'm not particularly religious), God doesn't give you more than you can handle and you will make it to the other side. Only after that will you realize that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. (you're totally singing Kelly Clarkson in your head now)

Some visuals to take away:

If you're looking for a place to stay in Boston...

Check out The Eliot Hotel. Visit the Web site here. Kirtie and I had a fabulous girl weekend and we would both HIGHLY recommend this fun little boutique hotel right in the heart of Boston...within walking distance of awesome shopping and great restaurants!
