Outfit — Dress: Shabby Apple // Sweater: Jolt // Heels: Kelsey Dagger // Bag: Celine // Necklace: Diamond Foundry
I am loving this week! It’s been beautiful here in the bay area so I think I might have officially transitioned to a spring wardrobe! I’m sure this is a fluke but this gorgeous weather start to March has me smiling ear to ear!
Today I’m wearing a casual double-stripe situation with my dress and oversized cardigan and going for open toed shoes because–It’s 75 and sunny! This delicate teeny-tiny diamond necklace from Diamond Foundry has been on my neck non-stop lately, as a reminder to go for what makes you happy and to stay strong. I’ve always been a supporter of sustainable fashion brands (like in these posts here, here, and here) so it’s nice to know what I’m wearing utilizes innovation and technology via a hot-forged process, rather than being mined from the earth. For a delicate piece that for me represents strength and achievement, its important that they’re committed to ethical processes for sourcing their materials. The hot-forged process is pretty cool–the eco-friendly diamonds are made locally in San Francisco by placing a thin slice of diamond into a reactor (as hot as the outer layer of the sun!) to then build atoms into the diamond to form the gem. They even reuse the original diamond fragment on the next gem!
I mentioned in my Valentine’s Day post that it’s important to celebrate yourself and take the time to reward for being YOU! Specifically I’m talking about celebrating my goal of finally starting a YouTube channel when I’ve been wanting to for YEARS. I’ve always been a huge fan of various YouTube channels but was always found some reason or another not to start my own. Finally I planned out my approach, what kind of of content I wanted to create, and pulled the trigger–ahhh! The first step towards your goal is always the hardest and most scary, so it’s special to celebrate and partner with Diamond Foundry to help craft and celebrate your hard work with a special stone.
What special ways do you celebrate yourself and your successes?
