As you can see, I am wearing a few of my favorite things from Friday’s post - two things being my rings and my new shoes. I felt particularly festive and sparkly in this outfit because of my shirt and bracelet, but also because I am wearing my Hearts On Fire Diamond Bands (c/o), which I stacked around my Grandmother’s pearl ring that I wear everyday. I like the idea of integrating glitz and sparkle into your daily looks, and by adding little touches here and there, you can feel fun and fancy without going overboard. I’m curious…do you guys wear any sparkly touches during the day? If so, how?

For those of you who saw my diamond advertisement in the October issues of Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Esquire and Redbook, know that I was lucky enough to don some diamonds for the day while participating in an amazing shoot with the incredible diamond company, Hearts On Fire. One of the objectives of the campaign was to show how you can incorporate your diamond pieces, no matter if it’s your engagement ring or a diamond necklace, into your everyday look without looking overly fussy or stuffy. (I urge you try this with anything you have in your jewelry box whether it’s real or fake jewels. As long as it’s sparkly or shiny, try integrating it into your outfit with a few other simple accessories, and you might find that you get a bit of a kick out of it!)

During the shoot, I became extremely fond of a certain triple stacked diamond ring combination, which I’m wearing above (minus the pearl ring). To me it exudes elegance and simplistic grace all in one, and when I think of that description, I think of my grandmother Rita, who encompassed all that and more.

I decided to wear the three bands around my beloved pearl ring, which was hers once upon a time to honor my new and old favorite pieces. Not only does it signify something so special to me, but it combines my own personal style with classic and truly timeless jewelry. Needless to say, I’ve been wearing this little combination every day and loving it.

I just want to say another huge thank you to the team at Hearst and Hearts On Fire. It was such an honor to work with two such amazing companies. xoxo

Stacked Rings: I’m wearing two Repertoire Bands and one Endeavor Band to create the look above.
