A Dream :: Baublebar Design Collaboration

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Gosh, I honestly don’t know where to start.  I’m beyond excited to share something very special with you today… a Wendy’s Lookbook X BaubleBar design collaboration!  This has been in the works for months, and now that it’s live, I can’t really put how I feel into words.  It’s excitement, joy, nervousness, and everything in between.  I feel so honored to work with the incredible team at BaubleBar to bring sketches on paper to life.  I truly hope you enjoy the designs, and if I may, I’d love to share this adventure with you!

This collection is inspired by structures, more specifically city structures.  Clean lines drawn from city skylines, chains and links inspired by metro grids and maps, and delicate chains paired with chokers influenced by bridges.  The BaubleBar team and I really wanted to experiment and have loads of fun, so we decided to highlight the jewelry pieces in the studio and also in real life.  With the editorial shoot, I focused on bold layering, and with the street style shoot, I featured light pairings.

:: Layered Structures ::

In the studio, I layered strong and delicate pieces together for an edgy look.  For daily wear, I love pairing the pearl collar with the asymmetric collar.

:: Statement Chains ::

To create contrast, I paired chain necklaces with soft feminine hues in the studio.  For a simple effortless touch, I wore them alone with my favorite tops.

:: Gold Rush ::

For high impact, I layered multiple gold pieces together in the studio.  For simple understated elegance, I coupled just a few key pieces together for daily wear.

:: My Sammie ::

I invited the team to my place and couldn’t stop talking about Sammie.  Andrew, the super sweet and talented photographer, snapped a few pictures of Sammie and I while we were on break.  This is how I show Sammie love… I hold him like a baby and kiss him everywhere until he goes “Mommie, ew!!!”.  Even though he resists, I secretly think he likes it! =)
