Mixing Pinks and Greens (Plus a Jewelry Feature from Ixora Boutique)

Hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday!

I'm enjoying the Oscars while dreaming of warmer weather.  We are in the middle of yet ANOTHER winter storm, but it's March!  It's supposed to be getting warm again!  Come on, spring!!!!!

Today, I'm excited to introduce you to a couple gorgeous pieces of jewelry from Ixora Boutique - a Kitsy Lane store.  I had always liked a lot of the jewelry offered, but I hadn't actually tried any.

Recently, my lovely sister loaned me some samples, and even gifted me a few! 


The jewelry is beautiful in person, and I've been having fun coming up with ways to style it.  Today, I feature these amazing rose quartz earrings (my birthstone) and moonstone ring.

Earrings:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)
Ring:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)
This first look is perfect for evening.  I love that it has a formality that works with the sophisticated jewelry.  I describe this look as romantic rock-n-roll.  

While the outfit is neutral, the pops of soft pink and mint green are right on trend.  Accessories are a great way to incorporate trendy colors into your wardrobe.
Dress:  The Limited
Jacket:  Target
Boots:  Target (Available here)
Purse:  Forever 21 (Available here)
Unfortunately, I did not get a ton of great pics with this look as it was way too cold and I was freezing all my bits off!  ;-/

I love the idea of dressing these pieces up for a night out with a lace dress and leather jacket, but since these pieces already have a formality, I especially love the idea of juxtaposing them with a casual look as I did here:
Jeans:  The Limited
Blouse:  LOFT Petites (Sold out on-line; May be available in stores here)
Ring:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)
Earrings:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)
Jacket:  Old Navy
Soft pink is my favorite color to wear with army green, so I love the mix of this top and earrings with the army jacket.
Bag:  The Limited
Shoes:  Target
Do you prefer wearing formal pieces for evening or in a more casual way?

  3. I love the dress and the jacket of the first outfit. The other outfit is very casual, while also comfy (at least to me). Nice handbag to the second outfit. Both close-up pictures of you are lovely. Classic Cassandra charm.

    1. Thanks so much, John! To be honest, the first outfit is actually more comfortable, but the second outfit was a lot warmer!!! :-)

  4. Oh it's so fun playing with new jewelry, the rose quartz earrings are really pretty and I love how you styled it with two different looks. Both looks are really great, but I really like the 2nd looks because it's such a cool casual look. I've always liked how boyfriend jeans looked but I haven't found a pair that looks nice on me but I think yours look great.
