Oh, to be a Princess...

I really tried. I really really really tried, not to get sucked into the Royal Wedding hoopla. Honestly! Sure, I've admitted that I'm kindof sortof obsessed with Kate's style, but I was trying to avoid it. But still, despite my best efforts, I found myself disappointed this morning when I woke up and found that I missed the arrival and the vows portion of the wedding. I'm going to have to tell you all that it's not so much that it's a royal wedding that had was the fact that it was a wedding. I'm obsessed with them. I will watch any show about weddings, movies where it's clearly a wedding movie, anything wedding, I'm in. I do a lot of custom jewelry orders, and my favorites are always for brides and their bridesmaids. I like talking wedding. Ever since I was 5 years old flower girl in my aunt's wedding, I was obsessed.

Although, watching the wedding this morning, I couldn't help but wonder what Jerramy Fine had to think of it all. It was pretty much her dream that happened. (The book is worth the read, I don't love chick-lit, but I could relate to some of her adventures and thoughts...maybe I shouldn't admit that, but really I am/have always known I'm a Princess, in the best way possible).

Trend I'm Loving: Color Block style

I am loveloveloving the color block trend. I feel like I've been carrying on a romantic fling with color blocking for a few years now, and I think it's because it's clean lines and classic styling make it less of a trend and more of just a bold statement. I love punches of color, and color blocking just feeds into that.

While swooning over some color blocked clothing I thought "I should really make color block jewelry, it's so me!" Then I realized..."duh, Erin, you already are." These earrings are fun and an easy way to get into the trend. You can wear them subtly with just a white top and jeans (let the earrings make the statement) or go crazy, and add them onto a color blocked outfit (which I fully plan to do!).
