I am writing this today from sunny Tucson, Arizona. I am visiting the desert for the annual JCK gem convention and so far its been incredibly educational and so much fun! My blogger pal Aubrey and I spent yesterday browsing the most beautiful jewelry from all over the world, meeting the designers and we were also lucky enough to be able to try on several of the pieces (watch my Instastories to see my faves) I just returned from an amazing sunrise hike along the gorgeous Saguaro cactus forest and getting ready to head back to the showroom for another day of sparkle!
I am taking casual Friday to another (very chic) level with faux leather trousers, a very fun Friday appropriate graphic tee and the comfiest sneakers. I love that these black leather sneaks have a classic shape but the black leather gives them some fashionable edge. I pretty much want to wear a beret with every outfit, I think Ive added at least three new ones to my collection this season, I mean who doesn’t like looking like they’re a stylish Parisienne?
I am off to start another fun day in the desert heat, please follow along on Instagram so I can show you all the amazing baubles & gems I encounter!
Happy Frie-Day, xo ~Zia
