If you didn't catch my "Craving Lately" Fall picks over on Adri Lately on Friday you should check it out! When Adri asked me to pick out some of my favorite pieces I knew exactly what to pick. (My wishlist is always sooo long). I really wanted to get every item on that list but after looking at this skirt I couldn't hold out any longer and I went to the mall the next day to pick it up. I love the shape of it and it's also really comfortable. Good thing the Labor Day sales were going on because I got it for 40% off! I think it will transition nicely into fall when I can wear it with sweaters and booties.

I also hope you're not sick of me wearing this necklace. I swear I don't wear it everyday...just when I happen to take outfit photos. Even though it's a statement piece I feel like it just goes with a lot of outfits. And the great news is you can get 30% off sale items at History + Industry right now with code "HOLIDAY"!

I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend! I ate way too much food last night at a Labor Day party and will probably do the same today!

Picks for Fall over at Adri Lately

Sorry about no new post today. Can I still blame it on Summer? But I am sharing some of the items on my wish list over at Adri Lately. Head on over to her blog to see my picks for fall! Plus, I love her style so stop by and say Hello!

While I was creating this list for Adri I decided that I needed some of these pieces in my closet ASAP! So I went out and got the skirt. I'm such a bad window shopper. But it was on sale so that makes it ok, right?

Happy Friday!

Chambray Shirt, Dot Pants, History and Industry

If you are thinking about going to a museum you should definitely wear pants. Why are they so cold?? I went to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles yesterday and I'm glad I wore a long sleeve shirt and pants, even though it was hot outside, because I was freezing inside! I also couldn't resist wearing this bold necklace again. I thought the round beads played off the dotted pants perfectly. I finished off the look with bright pink lips because summer is coming to an end and pretty soon I'll be putting away my bright lipstick for darker shades.

Shades of Blue

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. I managed to finally clean up a good portion of the apartment. I can't really focus on work or important tasks unless the house feels clean and organized. Thankfully, I got a lot of cleaning done this weekend so I'm ready to take on the week!

Anyway, I got this gorgeous statement necklace in the mail this weekend so I had to plan an outfit around it. I love how the blues in the outfit compliment the green beads and also bring out the slightly blue color of the large round ones. Do any of you plan entire outfits around one piece of jewelry?

Speaking of jewelry - if you are looking for fun, handmade, geometric inspired pieces you should check out the InfinEight Etsy shop. If you aren't ready to go as bold as the necklace I'm wearing but still like the chunky bead look you should check out the colorful, geometric necklaces in InfinEight. (like the one pictured below!)
InfinEightCollage
NucleusBlue SkiesBirdie
Mima - who runs InfinEight - has been making jewelry for several years now. She started out working with "organic" motifs, like leaves, but has been working with geometric forms more recently. A lot the pieces in her shop are made using brass, wood, and silver elements. Her pure silver pendants are handmade and feature fun, whimsical designs like the "Birdie" necklace pictured above!

I have one of her geometric brass necklaces. You can see me style it here! I love wearing it by itself but it would be great for layering with other necklaces too. There are a ton of other styles in the InfinEight Etsy shop so definitely check it out.

Summer Sponsors

Instead of an outfit post this Friday I'd like to introduce some of the amazing shops that have sponsored Jeans and a Teacup this past month. I think you'll love the jewelry, handmade items and boho chic fashion that this month's sponsors have to offer! 

InfinEightFinal
InfinEight is an Etsy shop based in Ontario, Canada. Mima has been making and selling jewelry for several years now. A lot of her jewelry focuses on geometric forms, using brass, wood, and silver elements. She also enjoys working with color and texture and creating new forms.  I'm also loving her cute, whimsical sterling silver pieces!

ChristineElizabethGP
Christine Elizabeth Jewelry is the work of jewelry designer and Glamour and Glow owner, Christine Spreng. Her jewelry features tiny, minimalistic designs perfect for everyday! Each style comes in two adjustable size options which make them perfect for layering. The Christine Elizabeth jewelry line is also very affordable which means you can create the perfect "neck palette" without breaking the bank! They also make great gifts. You can find the handmade Christine Elizabeth pieces under the necklace section on Glamour and Glow along with other great statement necklaces.

MercifullyMade
Fall is fast approaching which means it's time to start thinking about scarves, hats and gloves! And you're in luck because Mercifully Made has the cutest handmade crochet items! The fingerless gloves are perfect for a little extra warmth while still being able to use your fingers on those smartphones! And this delicate lace cowl is the perfect accent to a fall outfit. 

NoaElleFinal
If boho chic is your style then you need to check out Noa Elle from the 2Tee Couture line. Both of these lines are based in Los Angeles and made in the USA! You'll find feminine, flowy tops, dresses and bottoms in the Noa Elle collection. Check out the Store Locator to find a boutique selling Noa Elle pieces near you!
