**This giveaway is now closed.** Congratulations to Kristi (digitalsc[email protected]…).
A couple of years ago, my New Years’ resolution was to make more of an effort to be feminine. As a work-at-home mom to three littles (at the time), I had fallen into the trap of wearing sweatpants most days, only wearing makeup when we headed out on the weekends and never bothering with jewelry or accessories. The truth is I’d never been super fashionable (my baby sis got all of the cute genes), but I realized that my husband deserved more of an effort from me (he’s an artist and super visual) and that I actually felt better when I took a few minutes to put on earrings and some mascara and change into a cute — but still comfy — sweater rather than an old hoodie.
While my husband will be the first to say he appreciates these changes, he may now have some regrets as well, as I’ve become slight obsessed with necklaces and earrings. Stamped jewelry is by far my favorite (what proud mommy doesn’t want to show off their family?) and I love the femininity that a pearl adds to a sterling silver piece.
The Vintage Pearl was founded by Erin Edwards — an artist and stay-at-home mom — in 2007, and her designs are simple and profound. I love her mommy and marriage jewelry — from this adorable mama’s nest necklace to these vintage lovebirds (which I just added to my Christmas wishlist!). But I also love her heart for Africa necklace.
