The holidays are a wonderful — and sometimes stressful — time of year. There are numerous festivities, Christmas shopping to complete, events to host, and travel to see family and friends, of course.

Fall is by far my favorite season! I feel like it’s the only time my true style shines through. My second favorite season is spring because I can wear my warm-weather clothes with fewer layers.

I’ve often wondered how to incorporate my handmade jewelry line — Lace & Pearls Jewelry (LPJ) — into my blog outside the typical outfit posts. It occurred to me that it would be fun to share the story behind each piece of jewelry. And this post is timely, as LPJ is celebrating its two-year anniversary on November 7th. Woot! This feels like a great time to begin a new series on my blog.

Having these key items available will prevent you from scrambling the next time you’re celebrating a special occasion, attending an event, or getting ready in the morning.
