Happy first day of spring!  Hope you all had a great week last week and a fantastic weekend as well.  I was missing in action, as I spent the week in Texas with my daughter’s family.  Her two small children had spring break from their pre-school program.  We spent the week doing kid stuff every day; playing pirates, picnics in the park, train rides, movies and visiting an amusement park catered to special needs children, but perfect for little’s of any age.  By the weekend, this Nannie was worn out, but would not have traded the time spent for anything.  Lucky for me, we also fit in time for some pictures, taking advantage of one of many daughters many talents; photography.  Texas has such fun backdrops and beautiful landscape.

Today, I am collaborating with my friend, John Wind; you can find his Modern Vintage line here.   As part of his spring line, John asked me to introduce you to his new-knotted pearl line, which I love.  You can wear this piece as a bracelet or as a necklace, as shown.   I added a black tassel, but John offers other adornments that will compliment any outfit.   The collection also has matching earrings. 

I am wearing a Joan Vass White silk top from the closet, and William Rast Black jeans, details in the gallery below.

Hi Friends,

I believe that jewelry plays a big part in a woman's unique style and feel that each piece has a history, especially when given as gifts.  To that end, I own a lot of jewelry and give a lot as gifts.  A few years back, I found a piece of jewelry by John Wind that remains one of my favorites today; a Sorority Gal Cotton Pearl Initial Bracelet in Gold. The piece was inspired by Grace Kelly in Rear Window.  Love it!!

Through this post, I would like to introduce you to John Wind and his most recent collection inspired from the past.  Each piece takes on a personal meaning and a little soul of its own.  I love the fact that the line is unique, collectible and high quality. In fact, they could and should be handed down for generations!   My initial charm bracelet is still as beautiful as the first day I wore it!

John started as an artisan making chunky collage brooches and watch bracelets made of linked watch heads!   And due to demand for the line expanded into the gift world to deliver a unique jewelry line!  

Wind's designs have been featured in many books and magazines; including Harpers Bazaar, InStyle, Oprah and the New York Times.  You can purchase the full line on their website or it is sold in a number of boutiques around the world!  

Jackpot!!!

Jackpot!!!

I have styled two very different outfits, one from the closet and the other new.  I feel this jewelry complimented, enhanced and completed these looks.  In the first, I am wearing a Magaschoni gold coat purchased a few years back and #ftc (from the closet) with Free People frayed jeans and gold sandals, by BCBGMAXAZRIA again #ftc. And of course, my John Wind jewelry, featured in the gallery below.)  The second look is a fun, casual dress by Sundays from a local boutique in Charlotte called Luxe Angel.  Love the rose gold zipper and pockets ( can you tell I am a fan.) The dress is actually of gift for someone close to me so....sssshhhhh!! Such a great place to shop!!  The black sandals are Vince Camuto, from Nordstrom Rack. 

I am in love
