living a well tended life... at any age

crushed/crushing

Wow – thanks so much for all the great feedback on my first post in this series!

So without further ado…..

Crushed: Birks! For YEARS Gizeh’s were my summer sandal. Until they weren’t, and I swore that my Birkenstock days were DONE. But my Instagram and Pinterest feeds have been flooded over the last few months with pictures of classic Arizona’s – in black no less! – that made them seem so fresh. I debated for a bit between leather and suede and ultimately went with suede.

Living in them since.

Crushing: Same shoe. Silver.

What do you think?

Crushed: Is it possible to be something less than minimal? When it comes to jewelry, that’s pretty much me. I wear my wedding/engagement rings, the barely-there necklace that Mike gave me on the anniversary of our first date, and my super chunky watch. And never earrings. But I was coveting a wrap bracelet – in a very specific metal/leather combination – and could not love this beauty more. You NEED to check out Eighteen Bees – for yourself, as well as a totally unique gift.

Crushing: This watercolor clutch by lovely lovely Joya, of Rajovilla. The paintings are inspired by Joya’s Indian heritage, and each clutch is handmade – right down to the gold tassel.

Crushed: Anyone who knows me knows that I kind of have a thing for shoes. Like, it’s serious, and I am always thrilled when someone compliments me on my footwear. The MOST compliments I receive? It’s for these:

j. crew rainy day bow ballet flats

I’ve had these J. Crew jelly ballet flats FOREVER – they are my go-to rain shoes and they are as chic and “Audrey” as they come (sadly I see that they are out of stock at the moment, but you can always find them on ebay and Poshmark!).

Crushing: Rompers, question mark? They are so so adorable – boyish yet feminine, just my thing. But I’m always cautious about dressing too young. Yet every time I see this picture I think, yes, I can do this (this post)!

Thoughts?

Finally, I thought I’d share a few links I’m crushing on lately – hope you enjoy!

    Dear Sheri,
    What a surprise! I am thrilled that the bracelet fits with your minimalist jewelry aesthetic.

    Your post is just what I need to make me (finally!) purchase the Birkenstocks I’ve been considering since…high school!

    I’m thinking that Sheri Silver has just made Birks chic! I might just have to!
