Currently coveting: The Metallics | The Cambridge Satchel Company

I want it.

Cambridge Satchel Gold Metallic

But seriously…give it to me.

Also, can we just talk about Chris Benz’s partnership with Cambridge? LOVE the lavender and white bag.


First Star to the Right…

I have never really been a statement necklace person. I’ve always admired them, enjoyed stealing borrowing them from other people on occasion, and will spend an hour trying on every single one at Forever 21…but I just can’t make the commitment. I tend to prefer delicate necklaces with a thin chain, a charm or two, and typically lightweight enough for me to forget that I’m wearing one most of the time (think Dogeared, Maya Brenner, or Tiffany). My personal style is a little bit more understated and I tend to shy away from anything too trendy — although I do love a great cocktail ring, sparkly nail polish and I did have a bright purple streak in my hair at one point in time… (I know…maybe someday pics will resurface). Yesterday, I walked past a really stylin’ lady on the street in the most adorable Peter Pan collared shirt…until I realized, it wasn’t a Peter Pan collared shirt at all! She was sporting a Peter Pan collar NECKLACE!! Oh, the possibilities! I don’t know where I was when this trend first surfaced in the Spring (under a rock in denial that there could be a statement necklace out there for me? probably.), but I’m definitely into it right now. And besides, who doesn’t love a good Peter Pan reference?

Here are some of the contenders for a coveted spot in my jewelry box:

Well, I’m obviously drawn to neutrals (ha!) — oh well, baby steps!

What do you think of this trend? Love it? Hate it? A little bit of both?
