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!
