Happy Friday, loves! This Chicagoland weather is amazingggg. About time. It is supposed to be so gorgeous this weekend + all next week too, yay! Fingers crossed we don't get anymore cold + rainy weather. I am over it + ready to bust out my summer gear! I am also excited for this weekend because it's, Mother's Day on Sunday! I brought my son home from the hospital last year on Mother's Day + it was the best gift, EVER. I just love being a mom so much. What a blessing! I am going to be so full of emotions this weekend because I will never forget how I spent my very 1st MD + how special it was. 

I have mentioned so much in a lot of my blog posts how I would definitely categorize myself as a minimalist when it comes to accessories. I love jewelry + statement pieces, I actually used to wear SO much of it back in my college days -- big statement necklaces + arm candy -- who else is guilty?! Haha, but I definitely fall on the simpler side of things now. I still love a bold + beautiful piece but I wear it so much differently now. It's crazy how my style is always changing, especially since I became a mom. I love chokers + am totally loving the scarf neckties. I have seen everything from bandanas to silk. This style definitely compliments me more. I like that it is delicate + easily versatile with lots of styles. The details on this Chan Luu necktie -- swooooon. I recently ordered a couple from them + I can't wait to wear them all. So, I am sure you'll see me sporting these in some more posts! Another piece of jewelry that I am starting to wear a lot more are rings. I honestly can't remember the last time I wore rings. I typically just wear my wedding rings + I think it's because I find it hard to pair up other rings with it. They aren't super unique by any means, I just always thought it looked weird. Recently, I have been buying a lot of my jewelry from a local designer, Sophia Forero, + her ring designs are the first ones (in foreverrrrr) that I actually wanted to wear. I love their boldness but also the elegant vibes that they still carry. I definitely think it's hard to find a ring with that mix, so if you are like me -- check her out! #lifesaver (I linked the rings I am wearing below). I hope you all have a WONFERFUL weekend + happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful mamas! Muah!
