Shop for a cause – Autism Awareness Month

Throughout the year, Stella & Dot partners with foundations and charities to raise money for those in need.

So, since April is Autism Awareness Month, they’ve partnered with the HollyRod Foundation in support of those living with Autism. A portion of sales made from the purchase of the Brilliance Wishing Bracelet will go to the foundation.

I’d like to sell as many of these beautiful bracelets as I can! Let me know if you’d like to get your hands on one. Don’t wait too long!

The February trend report

Your cheat sheet is here! This February, we’re seeing some exciting trends that I thought I would share with you.

Bold colours

The lovely Amour pouch is the pop of colour you’ve been looking for. Pair it with a striped top like the Tatum Top or the Ruffle Pullover. Add an arm party and you’ve got yourself an outfit.

Latest trend: Blush is in this season

Trend alert! So, much to my surprise, and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet but… blush is on trend this season. For those who are blush lovers, and for those who are on the fence, like myself, you just have to take a look at some of the gorgeous pieces available in the Stella & Dot Spring collection.

So, let’s dive in.

First, we have the Chrissie Collar Necklace.

Next, the beautiful Pink Alexandria Chandeliers. While I’m not normally a statement earring kind of girl, I find myself really wanting to give them a shot. Anyone else not normally a statement earring girl?

Okay, the Double V Sweater is absolutely a major favourite this season. It can be paired with just about anything thanks to the neutral colour.

This Yves Wrap Bracelet is definitely on my list. I love a wrap bracelet and it looks really good when paired with these Montague Stretch Bracelets.

And last but certainly not least, the Waverly Petite (Neutral Braided) fold over clutch that doubles as a crossbody purse! What’s not to love there? Plus, bonus…. two looks in one!

Tell me your thoughts, comment below. Are you on the blush bandwagon?

My samples are on their way but let me know if you’d like to see anything or have any questions.

Stone Rebel Pendent

This is a new take on one of my favourite necklaces. It’s versatile, there are two ways to wear it. Gold on one side, calcite stone on the other. Also comes in rose gold and larvikite stone.

If you’re not a fan of the stone look, the original Rebel Pendant is still available in gold, rose gold and silver.

Erika Long Sleeve Top

This beauty has a V-neck, faux-wrap look and is perfect for layering your favourite necklaces. It comes in black and white and looks great with jeans.

The Zip Pullover

The bright colour of this Zip Pullover is just in time for spring and it’s definitely a bold choice. Throw it on with some leggings and pair it with the 3-in-1 Francis Lariat Necklace.

If you’re not a fan of the bright colour, there are three others available: camo, black and burgundy.

The Zip Pullover – Cobalt

Ren Slouchy Knit Top

The ever popular Ren Slouchy Knit Top now comes in navy and tomato red! Choose to do the one-shoulder look or not and it looks great with a layered or pendant necklace.

The beautiful Ambrosia necklace

Meet the Ambrosia necklace. When I first saw this piece I really admired it but didn’t really think it would be something that I would wear or that would suit me. I’m typically not a “statement jewelry” type of girl. But why not?

So one day I thought, “what the heck!?”and I tried it on to see if it would go with the outfit I was going to wear to work that day.

Turns out, I loved it. And I got so many compliments on it. It will definitely be on my neck again soon.

Check it out for yourself!

Oh, and bonus, you can wear it at least 5 ways!

My top 5 Stella & Dot favourites for March

So it’s the first day of spring! It feels like the last few months have gone by so quickly. So, to get ready for the new season, I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite pieces from this month’s Stella & Dot style drop. The new pieces are such great compliments to the Spring Collection that was launched in January and I can’t wait to introduce them to you.

Here we go!

1. The Vacay Bag

This bag is so versatile and can fit just about anything you’d need for your spring or summer holiday. It’s got a removable and adjustable vegan leather shoulder strap so you can have your hands free. Just in case you want to pack a few extra things, the vacay bag is also expandable! Don’t even get me started on the palm leaf pattern… pick one up in time for your next trip! Bonus: there’s a cute matching hanging cosmetic bag.

2. Bianca Knit Tee

This top screams spring and the bright coral colour is one of my absolute favourites. It’s sure to any outfit up a few notches. The poofy ruffled sleeves are so fun and give the Bianca Tee the right amount of flair. The crew neckline is just perfect to showcase your everyday essential jewelry, simple or statement. Just in case you’re not a fan of the bold colour, it also comes in white. Add one to your closet!

3. Ulani Pendant

This shiny silver pendant necklace is simple piece yet a great addition to any outfit. You can wear it alone or layer it with other delicate necklaces to change it up a bit.

4. Unity Wishing Bracelet

I chose this piece not only because of how cute it is but because it’s also a reminder to be inclusive of all people, from all walks of life and to be united! Until the end of April, Stella & Dot will donate the net proceeds from each Unity Bracelet purchase to benefit autism awareness. Together, we can work to achieve something amazing!

5. Antibes Tote

Say hello to your new beach bag! The Antibes Tote is your perfect companion for relaxing beach days. It’s got more than enough room to carry your sunscreen, sandals, water bottle and beach coverup. The outside palm details are embroidered and I think the fringe adds a little something special, don’t you? Why not grab one for your next vacation?

 

Okay, so that’s my top five for the month. Stay tuned to see my favourite pieces from the style drop next month!

Before I go, just in case you need a reason to shop…. I’ve got nine here for you. Shop now to receive exclusive offers during the month of March.

My current favourite Stella & Dot necklace

There are so many beautiful pieces in the Stella & Dot collection but I’d have to say that my absolute favourite necklace  is the gold Rebel pendant. It’s simple enough that you can wear it with practically any outfit, it’s very versatile. You can adjust the length to suit whatever top you’re wearing. And bonus, it comes in three colours! Gold, rose gold and silver.

Apparently (and this is not the reason it’s my favourite) singer and actress Selena Gomez, among many other celebrities have been seen wearing it.
