Jewlery-Folkster, H&M and Alex&Ani
This outfit is a mix of a couple of sale gems and new favorites. I picked up this Zara blazer back in the January sales for €60 marked down from €90. My love for Zara outerwear never seems to end, I have to actively resist from buying a new jacket whenever I drop in. I had wanted leather converse for ages, but didn't want to splurge on a €70 pair, so I was delighted when I found this pair for €45 in the Bank closing down sale. They're my everyday work shoes but are holding up so much better than the normal canvas pairs that I have destroyed in the past. I literally wore a white canvas pair so much that they're now brown. Everything else is from Bershka, one of my favorite stores at the moment, full of gorgeous pieces with a summery vibe and a very reasonable price tag. Due to my current obsession with Instagram and the amazing selection of stylish boho accounts, I've been inspired to stack up my jewelry lately. My jewelry collection is a mishmash of high street pieces, thoughtful gifts and family pieces passed down to me. My gold bangles are gifts from my boyfriend from Alex and Ani, the large gold bangle was a birthday gift from my mammy from Folkster and the gold necklace (that looks like the golden snitch) I picked up in H&M in York. I like that wearing jewelry is like surrounding yourself with special gifts and memories and people. They can bring back thoughts of birthday celebrations or travels or be symbols that inspire and motivate. I have jewelry close to my heart that belonged to my late granny, others that belonged to my mammy, someday in the future maybe someone will cherish jewelry that belonged to me.
Do you have jewelry that is special to you?
