Ok so first off,  how cool is this necklace? Not only does it look really unique, but it also has a really unique function. Enter Wishing Well, a jewelry line designed for living an intentional life. Here’s how it works: you pick one (or more!) of the “wells” (i.e. necklaces or rings) which all open up for your “intentions” (charms). The purpose of these charms is to remind you of your intentions for your life. There are loads to choose from ranging from a little dumbbell signifying a healthy lifestyle to a cross like mine, reminding me of  my walk with Jesus.  I am all about wearing things that are meaningful, so this line really speaks to me. Besides that, it’s just a cool and original idea. Furthermore, this jewelry is good quality and so pretty!
So many times I’ve seen jewelry that either opens up or is supposed to be interchangeable, but the hinges or clips are really bulky and obvious (there is something about this that I find tacky). The little hinges on this necklace are barely noticeable, which is a biggie for me. I have one other necklace that I also ordered with this one, but honestly it was hard to choose! I really like the entire line so be sure to check it all out here. I’m moving on to the rest of my outfit I promise, but before I do, I have to give a shout out to my fellow blogger Payton Sartain from Hustle + Halcyon. I first discovered Wishing Well through Payton and her blog. She is actually modeling the necklace that I have on here on the website… What a badass.
Actually moving on now, I can’t post this without also talking about my love for mixing prints. This can go terribly wrong, but when done correctly, it’s so chic and fun. When I mix prints, I choose one item that I treat as a neutral. For this outfit, it was the snake print shorts. From there, I just match up the colors and make sure it isn’t too busy. Then I try to match my shoes and my handbag for an overall cohesive look. Then boom, I’m done. Easy as pie. It takes a little practice (me mixing prints in high school was probably scary), but the key is to just keep accessories pretty simple and to choose one print that is a little less busy, and pair it with one that has a bit more going on.
