Accessories Week: Bracelet + Necklace

27 June 2012

Hi friends!! I apologize for skipping out on you for a few days! On Friday I was scheduled to fly up to Boston, but my flight got canceled! (That’s never happened to me before!) Luckily I was able to get on a flight that night to Hartford, and my saintly mother and sister drove from Boston to Hartford to retrieve me – and then back up to Maine (whew!). We went to sleep at 2:30 that night/morning, and then were up at 8:30 the next day for my uncle’s wedding, where I was the “official” photographer :) Sunday we drove home to Connecticut, and I’ve been catching up ever since!

All this to say, I’m looking forward to sharing my wedding day accessories with you this week! Today let’s start with my necklace and bracelet. Necklace first.

A little back story: that pretty silver + pearl pendant necklace was one of the first gifts that John ever gave me. I’ve worn it pretty much every day since, going on about six years now. I love it! Since my dress is a bit complicated on top, I knew I wanted a simple, delicate necklace, and so I always assumed I’d wear my Dogeared one. THEN I spotted the gold + diamond number on the right and bottom. Gorgeous, no? I can’t help but think it would make a perfect wedding day gift, as it’s basically my necklace, except fancier :)

I do know that I will for sure be wearing the lovely sapphire, gold, and diamond bracelet above. I found it while pawing through my Mom’s jewelry chest on my last trip home – score one for heirloom (and free! and gorgeous!) accessories! I wasn’t planning to wear a bracelet, but this one is too perfect to pass up. We just have to take it in to fix the clasp, and it will be good to go.

Back tomorrow with the goods on my clutch + earrings!
