One of my favorite things about the changing seasons is changing up your accessories and wardrobe. Today Stella & Dot releases their new collection and I feel so lucky to have received one of just 100 special preview boxes they sent out! If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen a few sneak peeks of the jewelry. I got to sample a few items from their new collection and they even included a few natural skincare goodies from Ever Skincare. This new collection is gorgeous!

In the box I received the new Mirage Pendant Necklace, Reina Necklace, Nolita Small Crossbody, Miramar Sunglasses, Convertible Sarong, and from Ever Skincare the Ever Smooth and Ever Body Glow.


I am obsessed with these necklaces! I’ve been wearing the Reina Necklace almost every day as a wrap bracelet. I love the boho style, the mix of metallic beads, and versatility. The Mirage Pendant is also a new favorite of mine. It features hand-applied sequin detail and delicate chain tassles. I love that it’s design is inspired by the brilliant patterns of Mexican papel picado (perforated paper). It has a slight movement to it, is beautifully made, and really suits my style!



P.S. I’m wearing Bite Beauty Amouse Bouche Lipstick shade Sweet Cream above right and below.


The Nolita Small Crossbody bag is so cute isn’t it?! It features a tribal inspired print and black tassels. It is essentially a wallet that you can toss into your tote bag, but then also add the removable strap to wear it in a hands-free crossbody style. I think it pairs perfectly with the Reina Necklace/bracelet.


Inside is just enough room for your essentials: cards, change, phone, keys, a lipstick (or two)…


The convertible Sarong can be worn around your waist as a beach cover-up, or as an infinity scarf – which is how I’ll be wearing it since I don’t really “go to the beach.” I live in northern Vermont – scarves are more my thing. The black and white pattern can easily be paired with a number of things and is the perfect match for the Nolita small crossbody!


I am obsessed with the pretty case that the Miramar Sunglasses come in! Haha, anyone else love glasses cases? It has a pretty white and cork print that can also be found elsewhere in this collection. The underside of the lid reads HELLO SUNSHINE and it comes with a lens cloth seen below also.


These glasses are well crafted and feature a chic black acetate frame with little chevron details. The interior is designed with horn print and again, the Hello Sunshine phrase on the left side. I love the shape of these frames!


Lastly there were two Ever Skincare products in this pretty box. I’d never heard of this brand and I’m excited to have been introduced to it! They are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, propylene glycol, synthetic fragrances and colors, chemical sunscreens, and hydroquinone.

The Glow Body Renewal Oil is an absolutely gorgeous shimmering oil that gives a summery, luminous glow, as well as nourishing skin with Vitamin C and Omega 3s.


The Smooth Anti-Aging Lip Treatment is soo silky and buttery! It smells delicious, slightly of the natural Cocoa seed butter and vanilla. It contains a luxurious blend of oils and butters that deliver immediate hydration and smooth lips. I’m loving it so far.
