Accessories really are a girl’s best friend! I teamed up with X Jewellery to show you a way accessorize for the summer with a range or composable bracelets. Unlike other modular link bracelets, X Jewellery is based off of the classic anchor chain-a symbol of strength-chosen to reflect bold women who see fashion as a form of expression. Each bracelet is unique it it’s own way like a self-portrait, composed of a set of links that YOU personally choose to tell your own story. X Jewellery is founded on a commitment to seeing women thrive and focus on three promises:
Jewelry made by YOU-it’s a creative way to express yourself. X Jewellery gives you the power to personalize your bracelet
Iconic Scandi Design and Craftsmanship-strong, fashionable, and dependable.
Support us in empowering women-women with big ideas who dare to forge their own paths to help others deserve to shine. X Jewellery allocates 10% of their annual profit to women striving to make a difference.
X Jewellery consists of individual links: Rubber links, Bronze links, and Silver links. I wanted to create bracelets that reflected the mood of summer so I styled this apricotand turquoise one. Wearing these bracelets make me feel so special because I specifically designed the looks to fit my own personal style. Shop for your own pieces here and post them on social media (Tag @xjewelleryofficial on Instagram and use hashtags #xjewellery #madebyyou). There’s also a sizing chart to refer to when creating your own bracelet. You can also receive 10% off of your first purchase if you sign up for their newsletter here.
Spring brings in the perfect, ideal weather for outdoor activities. It’s not too hot or humid and flowers are in full bloom so I’m extra happy around this time of the year! I decided to put together a list of different things you can do to enjoy the springtime. Feel free to post pictures of yourself enjoying this spring season on Instagram and use the hashtag #seasonswithsyd so I can follow along with your adventures!
Spring To-Do List
Go to the park: there’s a variety of trails to go hiking, biking, or take a casual stroll to enjoy the good weather! Be sure to pack a bag full of healthy goodies like trail mix (almonds, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds are a yummy combo!)
Plant an edible garden and/or flower bed in your backyard! This is the perfect way to put your “green thumb” skills to work. If you don’t have your own backyard, look into local community gardens on how to get involved
Host a BBQ/bonfire outdoors
Explore a local botanical garden or flower field. The Dallas Arboretum has a whole calendar of public festivities like concerts, tours, etc. And if you’re wanting to have a mini road-trip, there’s also the Tulip Fields a little further out of town in Pilot Point, Texas
Berry picking! You can make delicious homemade jams, jellies, and pie afterwards!
Shop at the Dallas Farmer’s Market for fresh flowers, berry jams, or delicious produce. The rainbow selection of fruits and veggies are to die for!
Spring Cleaning: clean out your closet, attic, or any other storage units to sell items at a garage sale or donate them to Goodwill
Find your new favorite wine bar that also makes amazing charcuterie boards
Plan a tea party or picnic outdoors with your girlfriends. Pink lemonade is a must-have!
A huge shout out to Socialite Pink for inviting me to be a part of the photo shoot for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection! The whole picnic scene was set up and planned beautifully from the throw pillows to the jars of pink lemonade garnished with mint leaves and blueberries. Not to mention these stunning jewelry pieces! You can purchase the necklace I’m wearing here, it’s such a gorgeous statement piece. Check out more stunning pictures (taken by Jannet Blas Photography) from part of the collection below. My favorite has to be the dream wrap bracelets, they can also double up as a necklace, how cool is that?!
With the warmer weather here, now’s the time to take off those scarves and scarves and replace them with unique jewelry pieces! I’m in love with these new necklaces the JewelzbyHanz sent me and I had so much styling them in different ways. My favorite piece is this statement druzy bracelet. Druzy stones have such an exotic, unique appeal to it since the shape and style is so different compared to other gemstones. My favorite part is how the bracelet can also double up as choker necklace. The purple color is so beautiful, I kept on getting so many compliments while wearing it! They also sell a gorgeous gold version here. These necklaces make a huge statement and the druzy stone is perfect to add a little bit of sparkle. I also love to wear daintier items when layering jewelry so I recommend looking for pieces that exotic touches like a tooth shape, animal, or a small arrowhead like this one or this half-moon pendant here.
