Salt & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 29, 2015

I’m feeling fabulous and fall-ish in this pretty ensemble …
style over forty, how to dress over forty, wearing trends over forty, fall 2015 trends
Not only am I wearing the most gorgeous unique handmade jewelry from SALT California, but I also am wearing my new Jacket Society merlot poncho!  Don’t they look amazing together?

I’ve been admiring SALT on their Instagram account for quite awhile now.  I was thrilled when designer Sarah Borgeson contacted me about a collaboration!

Look at these gorgeous luxe unique pieces! 
handmade jewelry in California
For almost twenty years, Sarah has drawn inspiration from the diverse worlds of art, architecture and nature to create her Santa Cruz, California-based jewelry line. A native Californian, Sarah creates her collections with an emphasis on versatility, color and texture to tell a story. As a sculptor with a formal education in sculpture and design from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Sarah’s interest lies in challenging common interpretations of color and materials to create work that is bold in its originality. 

Look for more stunning SALT pieces on my blog next week too!

And how about a couple more pics of this chic and cozy poncho?

    I just did a Command "F" to see if anyone else saw the Red Riding Hood pic–you are so her up there Dawn Lucy! I love it.

    First of all, sorry that I linked and forgot to comment. I thought I had! And, thank you for linking up in return to my Style Story Link Up. I am giving it a try–as I do most things regarding the blog. I can see how beneficial it has been for your, so I'm seeing if I can be successful with it. It's always a learning experience isn't it? At least I feel that way with my blog.

    Anyway, thank you for continuing to build and support this strong blogging community. You set a very good example DL!
