Subtle Accessories + Personalized Necklace (Great Mother's Day Gift Idea)


In the fall I was totally into neutrals, though now that it's spring I've been like, "Give me color!"  But after enough color craze I can definitely appreciate a clean, simple outfit of neutrals and basics.  Especially when it involves this super comfy Everlane tee.  Loose fit with heather detail.  <3  This might have to start doubling as a sleeping shirt!  (Mine is the u-neck version, but there is also a v-neck version.)
  

My outfit looked super plain until I began to add little accessories.  They really added up to make these basics look decently put together.  Because I used to wear big statement necklaces so often, I get questions about more subtle or less colorful pieces that can still make a difference.  Lately I've been wearing this Daniel Wellington watch that's perfectly sleek and modern but timeless at the same time.  (Get 15% off with code puttingmetogether.)  I've also been wearing a gold chain bracelet that adds a tiny touch of femininity and polish.  


Lastly, when Addie was born, Ashleigh, the owner of an Etsy shop called Sela Designs sent me a personalized necklace that I've worn most days since (shown left).  And recently she came out with a bunch of new necklaces that I think would be great for Mother's Day!  (Shown right.)

The one I've been wearing is stamped with Addie's name, plus Benson's and my wedding anniversary.  I'd love to add more stamped washers with more kids' names whenever we expand our family!

The one on the right can be customized with a bunch of different colored stones, and you can add as many initials as you want.  I chose pink opal because like I mentioned last week, I'm digging pale colors more than ever!

The best part is that all proceeds from Sela Designs go to a charity that supports children in Ethiopia!  You can get your mom a personalized and meaningful gift while supporting a great cause.  Head over there and check out all of Ashleigh's jewelry!

  3. It's the most delicate of pieces that often add the most punch to an outfit. I'm with you. As much as I want to "wear all the colors" my closet is mostly composed of neutrals now so it's all about the accessories.

  4. Love your outfit Audrey and I'm loving your hair. What kind/brand of curling iron are you using? Thank you.

  5. I LOVE your necklace! I have a similar one with the initials, but I don't have the added stone and it is so pretty! I need a new one now. :)

    The look is subtle, but super stand out! The tote and the shoes tie it all together. Well done!

  8. I'm loving the subtle "color" and accessories! Very pretty!! Have you ever tried the Express knotted tees?!? I think you would LOVE them! I was recently looking for a "perfect" grey tee and I discovered these. The colors are awesome! XO ~ Casey

  9. I have always loved your sitr - so much helpful information. I have a question - what is your "cover up" and where did you purchase it? By coverup, I mean the skin colored piece of fabric under your gray T. I remember reading that you always wear some kind of camisole under your shirts in case they are either too sheer or the neckline is lower then you would like.
    Thanks.

  10. Lately I've been wearing nursing tanks from Undercover Mama. Before I was nursing I just wore Old Navy camis without a built in bra.

  11. Thanks, Jeny! I use a $20 curling wand from Target. I think it's Con Air but not sure since I don't have it with me right now. _____________________________

  12. Oh that Sela designs necklace on the right is so pretty! I've been looking for something like that but with so many sellers it's difficult to know what would be a good buy! I've bookmarked that necklace for when the exchange rate is a little better - it's quite expensive but I know that's only because of the crazy Aussie/US dollar exchange rate at the moment :)

    You make neutrals look so chic! I have a tough time with a total neutral outfit (maybe because of my size?) but I just feel too out there. A great delicate necklace.

  20. Hi Rae! I can't remember for sure since I'm out of town and don't have the shirt with me, but I looked back at my order invoice in my email. I'm wearing Small, and I *think* in v-neck tees I normally wear Medium. The U-neck fit is a lot looser than the V-necks. Even sizing down in the U-neck, the U-neck small fit is looser than the medium V-neck. It's also a little higher in the front and slightly longer in the back.

  24. Thanks Heather! I got the bag that is cognac and black. (The bag is reversible.)

  25. Hi Julie! I don't think it'd be good for someone who is pregnant unless you carry extremely low. I think you're right about it cutting across the belly. I'd go for option #2 instead and belt it above the bump.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Actually, I'm not sure which option I'm talking about since Blogger ate my post! I'm talking about this dress and belting: http://bit.ly/1AWWoih

  28. I ordered this dress in the navy polka dots after I saw your Instagram post and I loved it so much I ordered another one in gray last week. I really appreciate this picture of it though. I'm terrible about styling necklaces and this gives me a great place to start!

  32. Not sure if you've heard of Latched Mama yet but you should take a look! http://latchedmama.com/ it's my friend's company, and it's cute, comfortable clothes for nursing moms! I have several friend's who've ordered things from her and love them.

  33. Love this outfit... those are really cute heels! Any chance you could do a post on heels in the future? The ones you wear in your outfits seem reasonable and easy to walk in...
