If you’re week has been anything like mine (aka hectic, filled with the flu, a tiny bit stressful), you’re going to appreciate today’s little pick me up. I’ve gushed about Rockbox before and after today you’ll have no excuse not to give it a try.
Here’s the run down: Each month Rocksbox sends you three, picked just for you, pieces of jewelry based on your personal style. Love statement necklaces – you can ask for them to send you three. Want to give midi rings a try with no commitment, let them know. They send you picks from designers like Loren Hope, Margaret Elizabeth, House of Harlow, Gorjana and Slate; you wear them for as little or as long as you like; when you’re done you pack them up, send them back and get three more to try. And if you fall in love with a piece, you can buy it for 20% off. Just like Birchbox or other subscription services, you just pay a monthly fee (it’s $19).
I tend to be kind of finicky when it comes to accessories. Love something and wear it constantly for a few weeks and then get bored, so this service is perfect for me.
Now here’s the part where your day gets better. Rocksbox is giving you a chance to try it out for a month for free. Just head over here and use code ‘daniellexoxo’ when you sign up. Once you fill out the style survey, your perfectly curated box will be arriving at your doorstep (and making your day) in no time.
These pants. I love ‘em so much.
I’ve worn them to parties, to work, with fur and now I’m wearing them super casual with sneakers. And if you see me in the next week, the chance I’ll be wearing them is high. This is their season so I’ve gotta get my money’s worth. You know, cost per wear (so low with these). You all know I love sneakers too and I may or may not have snagged another pair today (they were on such good sale and the only size left was, you guessed it, mine).
All these holiday sales purchases have made me decide to do another #NoNewThings challenge for January. Going to gather that Pinterest inspiration and put it to work in my closet. The good news, you probably won’t see these pants again until next year … well, maybe one more time.
p.s. – you have one more day to enter the pretty paper giveaway with The Paper Exchange, What the Print and Johanna Ehnle.
Plaid Pants: Old Navy (seen before here); Black Oversized Sweater: c/o H&M (seen before here); Sneakers: New Balance from J.Crew (seen before here); Necklaces: c/o Julie Vos and Peggy Li
Today is Election Day. And it’s a big one – especially if you live in one of the states with a heated Senate race (cough, cough Kentucky).
Don’t worry this isn’t going to be some political fueled post, all I’m asking/begging/pleading is that you GO VOTE!
Go early (polls open as early as 6 am), go late (get your butt in line by 6 pm and they are required to let you vote), go at lunch, go out and grab a frappy hour beverage while you wait in line. Just go do it.
It’s the only chance you have to make a real change in your government (unless you want to run yourself and if so, you go Glen Coco) and it’s an awesome right that people have and will continue to fight for. So throw on some red or blue (whichever side you dig) and go fill in a scantron (maybe that’s just here).
