Every once in awhile I stumble across a super cute clothing boutique or jewelry company but this time I hit the jackpot- two in one! When I found Alixandra Collections I instantly fell in L-O-V-E. What I really like about this company is how simple and effortlessly darling everything is. Like this top- it’s subtle, yet makes a big statement!

My favorite thing about this Contrast Button Up Blouse is not only the unique row of buttons down the back, but the color. It’s the perfect shade of blue and totally makes my eyes POP! The material is incredibly comfortable, too! I also love how it can easily be dressed up with a skirt, some heels and a statement necklace or dressed down (as I styled it) in some cute skinnies, stylish flats and a few dainty layering necklaces. Because this top is so boldly straightforward, I felt like doing something different with my hair. In the 22 years (almost 23) that I’ve been alive I can honestly say that I have NEVER had my hair done like this before. The “Milk Maid Braid” always intimidated me, and done wrong can sometimes look pretty comical. But after watching a YouTube tutorial or two, I felt pretty confident that I could rock it. To me, that’s all you need to pull off anything- confidence.

I’ve wanted a gold bar necklace for quite some time now, but I knew I also wanted it to be customized. So I about had a heart attack when I saw this Jessica Gold Filled Bar Necklace (also available in silver). It’s so stinkin’ cute! The quality is astounding and I really love these little gold beaded accents on the chain! When it came time to design my necklace, deciding what to put on it was the hardest thing! I wanted it to be meaningful, timeless and something I could pass on in the future. I originally planned on my favorite Bible verses (“Philippians 3:13-14”) but unfortunately that wouldn’t fit. So I went with an equally great- shorter one. “Psalm 46:5” which reads, “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” [NIV]. That verse is SO encouraging to me! I wear this necklace every day as a nice, little reminder.
{My Gold Arrow necklace can also be found at Alixandra Collections HERE.}

If you’re looking for a great birthday present or Christmas/holiday gift then I highly highly HIGHLY recommend a customized piece from Alixandra Collections’ Emprint Stamping. Personalized gifts show how much you care and it’s so fun to get creative! Plus, being on the other end of it and knowing that someone took the time to personally design something for you is one of the greatest feelings. 🙂

Thanks for reading!
I’m back to the suitcase-life this week! I’ll be flying off to the east coast for work again and I’m so excited!

See you soon!
