I wake up some mornings and think to myself, “I really don’t want to go out and take photos today.” Every blogger has felt it at some point. Sometimes when the weather is dreary, or you’re too busy, or you’d just rather be doing something else… it makes it that much harder. But finding fun new locations for shoots changes my attitude on those days, like this spot we found in a public garden. The fountain was so beautiful, and if you didn’t notice we had a little friend make an appearance in some of the pictures. I wish I could show you all my camera roll so you could see how many pictures were taken of the bird vs. me. Spoiler alert… the damn bird wins.

The weather has dropped again, and brought the gloom along with it, which called for lots of layers. Simple shift dresses and chunky scarves are one of my favorite, versatile pairings when dressing for the cold. Plus, I can take off the scarf and boots, throw on a statement necklace and heels, and BAM! Day-to-night in no time!

Rocksbox Experience







Perry Street Flora necklace, Gorjana Elea cuff, and Slate Crystal Spike earrings all via Rocksbox ¦ Ann Taylor Loft Utility Blouse (50% off with code MONDAY) ¦ J.Crew Toothpick Cords (30% off with code HOLIDAY)

Hello, readers! You may have seen these jewels in previous posts. They are all from Rocksbox, which essentially allows you to try out jewelry from popular designers on loan for as long as you want. Think of it as the Birchbox of jewelry! This is how it works:

1. Take a quick style survey so that your personal stylist has a better idea of what you like.

2. Receive 3 pieces of jewelry by mail, all hand picked for you, and wear them for as long as you want.

3. If you’d like to keep any of your items, you can buy them at 20% off! Otherwise, you swap out your set whenever you’re ready to receive your next box. (Did I mention that they pre-pay for your return shipping? I thought that was a nice little addition!)

What I love most about Rocksbox is that I really get the best of both worlds. They carry some of my favorite designers – like Loren Hope and Gorjana – but also a few exciting brands that I’ve never heard of.

I absolutely recommend trying Rocksbox to anyone that appreciates creative brands and beautiful jewelry. If you’d like to sign up, you can receive your first month for only $9 by following THIS LINK and clicking “Get Started”. From There, just enter the code BeYourBrightest upon sign-up. After that, you’re ready to go! I hope you enjoy your first box just as much as I did!

A big thanks to Rocksbox for sponsoring this post.
