Mix antique and modern jewelry for easy Boho style luxury!
Amy’s blog (if you haven’t read it yet, check it out from yesterday – totally worth it!) inspired me to write about personal style. Her number one rule is: know your own style.
My personal favorite is Bohemian Chic by day and Bohemian Luxury by night. I love, love, love the exquisite and beautiful craftsmanship of antique and vintage jewelry but I also like to mix it with a modern piece here and there to give it a bit of edge.
What is “edge” anyway? That’s probably an Amy question, but I see edge as that jewelry detail that adds an original design element of something unexpected.
I would wear this eighteen carat snake bracelet day or night. Maybe with a simple black top and black leather skirt and ankle booties.
I would wear the earrings (love these – Rock of Eden modern, originals) for a day look with jeans and ankle boots and the same simple black top. I don’t like to fuss with wardrobe so much because I have young kids. Jewelry is fast and easy to change.
And for chill time on the weekends I would wear this detailed silver swallow necklace with jeans and any old scoop neck shirt. I might also wear the sapphire and emerald spike earrings depending on whether or not I’m shopping or having lunch out for the day. For me, jewelry is the ultimate fast, discreet luxury accessory that instantly changes a look.
