Being a mom has totally changed my jewelry wearing style. Out of necessity of course. It’s not like I suddenly don’t WANT to wear four necklaces, and arm load of bracelets, and three rings per finger. Because I SO DO. But seriously. Not only do I have the time crunch of two toddlers pounding on my door screaming MAMAMAMAMAMA while I’m trying to get dressed, but I also have the curious tiny fingers grabbing at everything I wear. So my jewelry style has had to be simplified a little. I find that when I come across a single amazing statement piece, I go for it because it still looks like I’m wearing a lot (as I love :) but it takes two seconds to put on. And two seconds to take off if it’s becoming a problem with the little grabby hands.
Squash blossoms are just glorious. I want to own a collection of them…both vintage and new. But I really haven’t had any time to go to flea markets or hunt for them yet. When I found Free to Wander on Instagram I was overjoyed. They make the most beautiful statement jewelry…vintage inspired and so eye catching. I finally finally got my very first squash blossom hand made by them (accompanied by a hand written note which always just makes me smile) and I’m in love.
I’ve got it with this Umgee dress from H&G Boutique, but it will literally go with everything. It slips on quickly and just makes every outfit look so “done”. I’ve got other pieces I’m already eyeing in the shop because they’re all so pretty and would be such great layering pieces together.
I know being a mom means making some style sacrifices at times. But it’s such a fun feeling to find stuff that makes me feel like me while still being a mom at the same time. This is a Friday Find you’re gonna see on endless repeat I can guarantee! :)
