Gorgeous Jewelry + Watches to Make Your Summer ( + Beyond) Fashion Statement!

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the summer warm temperatures, the long days and the fun things you can do in all that time! It’s a time when you can wear more clothing (or less) than normal and play more with accessories to score fashion points. I felt it might be great to curate some jewelry that I thought were a great tonal match for spring/summer 2014.. (I know spring is LONG gone. The idea is for next year as well as other seasons when LBD or outfits of neutrals need some “juice” or bite) . Wherever you see Sobral jewelry, don’t hesitate to buy it because pieces don’t last long in retail stores or online!

From JillCroft.com, an update from Sobral Jewelry. This is an interesting and unique line handmade in Brazil. It’s perfectly timed to FIFA because of it’s edgy styling and bright, colorful hues. It’s resin jewelry styled in chunky pieces that will add pop to your LBD or neutral outfit. It can go from the office to weekend wear in a snap.

Saving the best for last, watches are one of my personal favorite accessories. I have a small collection of watches that range from the interchangeable straps and faces to really great looking watches! You can find some very interesting presentations.. like JORD wood watches.

I was gifted a JORD Fieldcrest watch. That in no way affects my decision to feature this brand nor does it impinge on my impartiality. What’s truly interesting is that JORD offered me a watch and I was not sure I should take it. However the unique presentation, the quality of the timepiece and the affordable price eventually convinced me I should test drive this watch. I am glad I did. It’s a great watch: lightweight, accurate and beautiful.

This series will return with other jewelry brands as well as shoes, bags and other accessories.

Stevie Wilson,

The amount I make has yet to be determined that despite people going to visit the links (and it’s in the thousands every month), I have yet to have anyone buy anything from them.
