A FEW FAVORITES / 01 + GIVEAWAY

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven

just a few things i've been enjoying lately: the accessories edition. these days getting dressed involves picking a pair of skinny jeans, throwing on some boots, and then choosing between the same rotating handful of grey, white, and black sweaters that i brought out to oregon, over and over and over. the happy part of packing light + staying longer than expected is the realization that i never need to wear any other thing pretty much ever. color be gone! i've never felt more like myself. and what's even more fun is how much i've enjoyed that moment at the end where i go to the dresser, dab on a fragrance, and pick out a fun little extra to jazz things up.


these are a few of the pieces i've been playing around with lately. none of them are exactly the style i'd go for usually (minus the feral watch... brown leather straps and a big white face make my heart go pitter-pat), but that's been the most fun. bangles usually stress me out, but the two on their own set against the minimalism of the rest of my outfit, i really like it. a few times i've worn both of the pradman gemstone rings at the same time on the same finger, which makes for a kind of luxe crazy-person vibe, but only on one finger, and that's real good by me.

pradman jewelry has generously offered to give a cushion cut ring of the winner's choosing to one lucky hey natalie jean reader. to enter, simply scroll through the selections at their website HERE, then come back and tell me which ring you'd choose. (and please check out their instagram at @pradmanjewels!) our winner will be chosen monday and contacted privately. good luck and happy commenting!
