Get charmed

March 9, 2015

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend! Ours was extremely busy, like one thing to the next and no stopping. My hubby and I were able to plan a date afternoon through evening of going and looking for furniture. Since my hubby and I met we haven’t bought much furniture (well accept our bedroom set 4 years ago, bookshelf and a few $1 lamps) but we have had people donate furniture to us when they have moved and wanted newer sets or people have just wanted to bless us with second hand or thrifted furniture. We ended up buying everything on a super discount or outlet and this includes  a new sectional couch, 8 bin organizer shelf and 6 chair dining room set. On top of that we had placed an order for carpeting through our house and await the estimate for that job and carpet to go down next month. Then with moving the newer sets in and older sets out and cleaning behind the older sets it has been a process, but we are in LOVE with our new sets and can’t wait to get our carpet in. With all the busy-ness I did get some time in to shop at my favorite stores (Marshalls, Target and TJ Maxx) and scored some much needed items for spring (more of those added items in the near future) as well as this lovely outfit shoot.
I was recently contacted by hands down one of the best women and entrepreneur I have had the pleasure to collaborate with and that is Leslie of My Arm Charms (a bracelet boutique for the fashionista with a hunger for loads of arm candy). I am so excited to work with this boutique and to present to you some lovely arm charms that is not only affordable but chic and what’s better the site (here) has something listed for everyone and every style desired.

These two bracelets I am wearing here have been worn numerous times since receiving them but my favorite items to wear them with are brown and with this mustard cardigan. These are so versatile that they would go with just about any item you own. The “Gems” bracelet (seen here) is a stretchy gold beaded bracelet that goes on like a glove and sets perfectly without moving up or down the wrist. At first the beads or gold links seemed a bit itchy but I think this was because I am not use to a bracelet with a whole bunch of links and beads to it but there were no link imprints or any further uncomfortableness when worn for hours several days in a row.
The silver bracelet with gold roman numerals is probably a new personal favorite and opens on the side and clamps down shut when placed on. (view here).


I paired these bracelets with a similar gold toned thin bangle bracelet and a layered necklace in the same metal tones for a fun metal mixing statement.

    Congratulations on your furniture. Getting new stuff is always fun and decorating even better.

    Rachel, the bracelets look fab! Glad you are enjoying them. I really appreciate your candid and authentic review about the Gems bracelet – ladies want to know and should know. Your readers will trust you all the more. Gems looks like it was made for that mustard cardigan. High polish on the Roman numerals on When In Rome comes across really eye-catching.
