Vintage LED watch

Stacking a watch with bracelets is nothing new but I have been seeing a ton of vintage watches paired with wood beads and woven bracelets for a super cool summer look.

Finding a gold-tone retro watch is really no big whoop with a little eBay searching but I really, really wanted a vintage LED watch, totally old-school. This is just my husband’s nerdery rubbing off on me. A well-kept red LED watch can set you back up to $300 but I found this one for $20! And it even (kinda) works!

I found the woven leather and wood-bead bracelets at a cute shop in Marin but you can easily make your own. In fact, braiding friendship bracelets is an awesome mindless activity for those times you are confined to the house. I never in my life learned how to do it before and I found a very user-friendly tutorial here.

DKNY Jeans Dress

Even when my day calls for a casual look (which is like everyday on maternity leave), I have to inject some edge into my outfit. It is really the only way for me to feel like I am actually wearing clothes and not a burlap sack. This drawstring dress by DKNY Jeans is equal parts cool and comfy. The simple addition of a mixed metal spiked necklace from INPINK adds to the texture of the abstract print while giving the look that little dose of punk chic I crave.

Inaugural post! So exciting. First, a quick mission statement. This blog is for new mommies that need a little motivation and/or inspiration to keep their stylish juices flowing while raising a tiny human being. Sounds like a tall order but I know it’s possible and totally worth it. When you look good, you feel good and when you feel good, you are the best mom you can be. So join me in this journey. Don’t lose your cool.stacked bracelets

Anyway, onto my first style tip. New moms, you will find that opportunities for wearing your fine jewelry (that growing pile of anniversary and Valentine’s Day gifts that have gotten progressively better over the years as your partner gets a better clue of your taste, thank god) are few and far between these days. You may not be going out to as many romantic dinners or formal occasions but that doesn’t mean your fancier jewels should collect dust.

Stacking your bracelets is not only on trend, it’s also a perfect opportunity to sneak in a little sparkle. Here I took a vintage studded link bracelet and paired it with a gorgeous black diamond bracelet. While their styles are different, they match in color so it does come together nicely. Sparkling drawstring bracelets also provide the essential mix of glamour and casual. This gorgeous piece from Balla Bracelets is encrusted in Swarovski crystals for a stunning shimmer.
