Summer Accessories with Pandora

We hit temperatures in the triple digits over the weekend {with crazy high humidity!} so I guess we are officially in summer mode around here. . .

One of the best parts of this season in my opinion has got to be easy breezy outfits on a more regular basis.  During the cooler months I struggle with all the layers - sometimes it works but more often it's just sweatshirt on top of sweatshirt because I'm trying to keep warm.  Summer however is completely different.  Simple t-shirt dresses paired with sandals or sneakers, big sunnies and stacks of bracelets.  I'm all about comfort but still like to look cute so I think it's the ideal summer uniform for a girl on the go or a busy mom like myself.

Reed's Jewelers recently sent me a couple of gorgeous leather braided bracelets along with 3 new charms from PANDORA's latest summer collection to try out.  I don't own any pieces from PANDORA so I was really excited to check them out!  I mentioned above that t-shirt dresses and stacks of bracelets are my go-to summer look so I figured they would easily transition into my current wardrobe.

Honestly, they couldn't be more perfect.  I'm crazy about them!  I love the pink & blue leather wrap bracelets with the silver tone hardware, they just compliment so many of the neutrals in my closet.  I think a little pop of color is always fun, especially in small doses like the bracelets.  And the charms are adorable and are so pretty to mix & match.  The details in each charm is really stunning and intricate.  I especially love the turquoise blue stones - the colors just remind me of the ocean water.  I flipped through the catalog Reed's sent along and am already setting my sights on some new charms for my PANDORA bracelets.  I can see why people have so much fun collecting charms!

If you guys don't already own a PANDORA bracelet or set of charms, now is a great time to get some goodies for yourself or gifts for someone on your list.  Reed's Jewelers is offering a FREE leather bracelet {like the ones I am wearing in the photos} with any purchase of $100 or more!
But act fast because this offer expires June 19th. . .

So. . . do you have any must-have summer accessories?  I'm always looking for new inspiration so let me know yours in the comments below!

Cheap Thrills

I've admired the look of these simple & effortless Cluse watches for months.  I love the classic face paired with either a mesh or leather strap and just think they compliment every single outfit.  Prices start around $99 which, in my opinion, is a pretty reasonable price for a watch these days.  I've had the grey style {pictured above on the far right} in my shopping cart for a little while and have just been patiently waiting for the right time to hit purchase.

Well imagine my surprise when I came across a very similar look for a whole lot less today while browsing the sale section at Nordstrom.  Priced at just under $12 - you can nab this almost identical style and it's available in several gorgeous colors.  I'm fairly certain that this 'cheap thrill' won't last long. . .

Home Office Refresh

I've been extra busy these days but one of the projects I'm planning to tackle in the next few weeks is refreshing our home office.  It's the first room you see when you enter our home and opens up to the entire main floor.  I'm planning to incorporate more wood tones and sprinkle in a few pops of soft green & brass to balance all the black, white & gray we currently have going on.

I'll be sure to post a few before & after photos as we make progress. . .
