• Wearing and Styling Your Milestone Jewelry

    How to Style Milestone Jewelry | Oh Lovely Day

    I love to mark big milestones in my life or relationships with milestone jewelry that I can wear everyday. Whether that means wearing a bar necklace with my children’ names or initials, or wearing my engagement ring and wedding band, or getting a new band or a pair of earrings to mark a major anniversary — milestone jewelry just reminds you of those important moments in your life and ignites those feelings over again when you wear and see them.

    If you aren’t sure how to pair or style your milestone jewelry, here are some tips:

    1. Stacking rings:

    You can either stack a milestone band with your wedding band on your left hand (if the bands are skinny enough you can even stack them with your engagement ring as well) or stack milestone bands on your right hand. I love the look of both, depending on your ring style and overall jewelry style. If you like and wear bigger and chunkier jewelry or have a band with bigger diamonds, right hand wearing and stacking — separate from your wedding and engagement ring — work best. If you prefer thin, delicate bands, you could stack them on your left hand with your engagement ring and wedding band or on your right hand.

    You could do anything from a simple band to a diamond band to mark major anniversaries (5, 10, 20 years, etc.) or the birth of your children. Or use them to mark any big milestone that you want to celebrate and remember through your jewelry.

    I really love the way the Multiplicity Love Five Stone Band pairs with the Lorelei Floral Diamond Band, both from Hearts On Fire.

    2. Earrings:

    A beautiful pair of diamond earrings are a great way to celebrate a milestone as well. Choose a pair that you can wear everyday and that also work well as special occasion earrings, like the Fulfillment Round Earrings from Hearts On Fire. These are going on my wishlist for our 10 year anniversary for sure!

    3. Necklaces and Pendants:

    I really love bar necklaces to mark milestones. You can engrave your children’s names, or your spouse or partner’s, or an important date like an anniversary on them. I have one of these necklaces with two bars, one with each of my son’s names on them. I am also hoping for this initial necklace once baby number three comes in January to include all three of my sons’s initials. You can pair necklaces as easily as rings if you do it right. It is best to pair an everyday gold necklace with another, or with something like a simple diamond necklace or pendant. The key is to keep it simple and chic, and try to make sure they are different lengths so they don’t get lost in each other or tangled together.

    •  Continuing the Halloween theme today because I'm in a Halloween mood  Last year. My favorite movie as a kid became Charlie's favorite last year and he wanted to be Jareth so bad. I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but we did. Even down to dressing Calvin as Toby because he was the perfect age. I don't think it will ever get better than this for me. #dancemagicdance #babewiththepower #labyrinth  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas. (Tag a momma who needs to get cheesy and read the words to a Miley Cyrus song ) #battlefieldmotherhood _______________________________________________ I can almost see it. That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.
       Countdown to Halloween is on! Reminiscing about that time Charlie was @macklemore for Halloween, 2013. Kid was two weeks shy of three and played the part to a tee. What is your favorite costume you or your kids ever did? #isthatyourgrandmascoat #poppintags #charlieasmacklemore #babymacklemore #bornentertainer #charlesdashiell  We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat
