Layers {52 Photos Project}

I have a weakness for costume jewelry.  I don't require real diamonds or 14karat gold to make me a happy wife.  Instead I have a tendency to pick up a necklace here, a pair of earrings there, while out and about running mundane errands.  But my favorite item to pick up at any time is a new stack of bracelets. Two or three heavy circles layered on my wrist seem to complete any outfit, their subtle clinking keeping me aware of their sparkly presence.  People often ask me if I am wearing expensive Lia Sophia jewelry and I love surprising them with the fact that I find most of my jewelry at Target! Next time you are there stop in and see their collections. You might be surprised at what you find. It's much more fun unpacking your laundry detergent and paper towels when you know there is something glittery and feminine tucked inside that Target bag just for you.


  1. A girl has got to love any kind of bling!

  2. I'm not a connoisseur of jewelry, by any means. I think it takes a keen eye to choose jewelry from places like Target and go away looking like Pandora had a free give away. I've always been a little jealous of people like you!

    1. Ha ha! I've heard that from people who go to Target and don't see anything they like. I guess my rule of thumb is that it has to be heavy - then the quality is usually better. Also trust your instincts - only think about whether or not you like it, not what others might say. Be brave!

  3. "subtle clinking", "sparkly presence"... I like those words, and your bracelets, too, of course! How nice that you have some with crucifixes!

  4. Love this!! A girl after my own heart!


  5. I love costume jewelry and that is why I am making my own these days!

  6. I don't wear a lot of jewelry but I do love bracelets. Love Target too . . . I spend a fortune in that store.
