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!

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.

Hello, readers! I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend. I have started to think about simple and versatile outfits that can be worn for many occasions during the holiday season – a company party, a family get together, etc. This is one of my favorites. I like to take simple pieces and pair them with eye-catching jewelry. Loren Hope is my go-to if I want to make a statement. Speaking of, everything on the website is 40% off with code THANKFULLY, including both of my bracelets! More good news, my Kate Spade bag is an extra 5% off compared to earlier in the weekend with code CYBER30! There are so many good ongoing sales right now.

Holiday Gift Guide III – For The Men

One thing that I always need help with is gift shopping for men. I’m the absolute worst at it, and that’s probably because the men in my life – those being my dad, brother, and boyfriend – all have very different tastes. One prefers clothing and watches, one is tech savvy and really likes fun gadgets, and the other could honestly care less… he’s happy with whatever he’s surprised with. I know there are men and women out there who are faced with something similar around the holidays, so I included a little bit of everything into my men’s gift guide.

forthemen

Magnetic Bottle Opener ¦ Apple TV ¦ Ray-Ban Wayfarers ¦ Dark Rum Candle ¦ Watch ¦ Plaid Button-Down Shirt ¦ Large Travel Bag and Toiletry Case ¦ Quilted Barbour Jacket ¦ Bluetooth Speaker ¦ Flask ¦ Wallet ¦ Boots

Happy shopping, and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends!

Outfit: Old Navy cable knit sweater and flannel top (both on sale!) ¦ Banana Republic skirt ¦ Hunter rain boots ¦ Kate Spade bag ¦ Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain ‘Smitten’ and Super Lustrous Lip Gloss ‘Berry Allure’

Jewelry: Page 6 Boutique earrings (similar) ¦ Perry Street Flora Crystal Necklace c/o Rocksbox ¦ Kendra Scott Skylen ring ¦ David Yurman ring

There’s nothing better than soft sweaters and flannel shirts to keep you warm on a chilly day. I mean really, that’s what I basically live in during fall and winter. One of the first places I stop at for new sweaters is Old Navy. Let’s be honest, a lot of places charge a pretty penny for cable-knit sweaters. Old Navy has all the style AND the affordability. I really love this cable-knit + flannel popover combo, and both of these items are currently on sale! These would no doubt make for a great Christmas gift as well.

One thing that I will never begin to understand is moody South Carolina weather. Last week I walked outside to ice on my car almost every morning… but this week is ridiculously, unseasonably warm. On the bright side, the change breaks up the chilly months and allows me to get a few more wears out of a few of my transitional favorites like this scuba skirt (currently 50% off) and my open-toe booties (also on sale).

Also, you may have noticed that I’m wearing a few new jewelry pieces from a company called Rocksbox. If you’ve never heard of it, you should check out their website right this second because you’re missing out! You’ll see a post about it later this week, including a really exciting offer from Rocksbox!
