A fun imaginary outfit because it is Friday and it’s quittin’ time. Have a fantastic weekend!

I had every intention of finishing up the Holiday Gift Guide posts I had planned, but instead I spent the end of last week and all weekend sick on my couch. I realize it may be too late for this holiday season, but I thought I would post some of the collections I have been bookmarking for the past few weeks. First up is jewelry!
1. Future Standard Astrology Necklaces
I have had my eye on these dainty astrological sign necklaces for awhile now. They would also make great birthday gifts.
2. Catbird Heart Ring
Sweet. Simple. Perfect.
3. Noble Town Vintage
I love the geometric shape and that they’d be swingy on my ears.
4. Collette Ishiyama
I have obsessed over the Collette Ishiyama collection since I saw photos from her Lookbook posted online months ago. Brass and stingray, so chic.
5. Stone and Honey
Love, love, love these long dangling earrings. The turquoise beads, clear quartz and black triangle combination is so perfect.
6. Fail Jewelry
I bought my bridesmaid’s gifts from Christine Fail’s Etsy shop and she couldn’t have been kinder or more gracious. I love so many of her pieces, but I keep going back to these bangles.
7. IS WAS + WILL BE
I love a statement necklace. I want to wear this one with a white v-neck T, a long cardigan, jeans and boots.
Remember when I posted about Erin Considine’s incredible jewelry? Fader TV did a wonderful interview with her in her Brooklyn studio. She has such a lovely aesthetic and seems so genuinely cool. Check it out:
On Friday The Quail and I celebrated nine years together! The day was extra special because we picked up my engagement ring and wedding band from the extremely gracious and talented Blanca Monros Gomez. We went to her Park Slope studio in March to look at rings. I chose a diamond solitaire in rose gold with a matching rose gold and diamond band, and she handmade them in the following weeks. The rings came out beautifully, they are simple, delicate and so pretty. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Blanca is so sweet and lovely and, for me, supporting a local artist rather than a big jewelry store was very important. Afterward we had a very long and wine-filled lunch at Benchmark, which is also in Park Slope. We toasted to spending the rest of our lives together. It was a sweet, sunny and romantic afternoon.

Maybe it is because my engagement ring is rose gold. Maybe it is because I am ready for Spring. Either way, these delicate pink baubles knock my socks off. Let the romance begin.
