Summer Bedazzling

IMG_1688

At every special opportunity this summer, I have worn my new favorite forms of bedazzling.

It is a testament to my version of the expression Less is More- which should read-

More is More.

So sparkle was my friend at summer weddings, showers, and dinners.

And even though this straw clutch wasn’t bedazzled, it was the perfect choice with all of my white linen.

Bedazzling True Confession Quiz:

Who owns a bedazzler?

Who owned a Collins bag?

Who owned a  jeweled t-shirt?

Nope.
Errrr - no.

no,no, and yes, we had tons of jeweled t's and sweathirts fabric glue was our friend! Your set of jewels is just gorgeous; and that's been my clothing of choice this summer. White or natural linen. Who cares if it's wrinkled, heck sometimes I didn't even iron it. Love those glitzy sandles too!
been missin' ya, we need to talk!

laura, thank you for leaving such an encouraging note on my blog. i so appreciate your thoughts. i think as women we often feel whatever we do, its not enough. i've seen so many "needs"...i just want to make sure i'm giving and not using all my time on myself....i agree though, raising children is a ministry!!!

you have a lovely blog
xo

Theresa said...

Love it! I love the bag, shoes and ooohhhh lah lah, the jewels! I bet you were looking gorgeous! Enjoy your day my friend! HUGS!

I must confess. I own none of them. I did see some nice bedazzled necklaces at Macy's a couple of days ago though. Tempted, but walked away. I just don't get dressed up since not working for the past 8 years. I used to be a show stopper, but naaah... no more. Just a simple black dress with black heels and a nice necklace would be my attire if I HAD to dress up.

trash talk said...

No...but I give them as gifts!
What do you mean by "owned"? Aren't they still in style?
What do you think? Have you seen me?

I love those sandals...and that clutch! Work it girl!

Debbie
P.S. Been meaning to send you an e-mail, but I'll just it here for all the world to see. I wish with all my heart I could have been one of your students or at least had a teacher with all your heart. I coulda been a contender!

Hi Laura, thought I come for a visit. Hope you're doing well and enjoying the hot summer.

I own a bedazzler that I was going to use on my aprons but haven't used it.

I don't onwn Collins bag/

I don't own a jeweled t-shirt, but I almost bought a jeweled western jacket but changed my mind.

Take care and have a great weekend.

Hi Laura,
Um, no, no, and no.
I love to dazzle a bit myself. But as soon as I come in the door it has to come off, because Landon is crazy for it and will attack me for it.LOL!
I just went back to read the posts I have missed here at your place. I love to read your writing and your musings. I can feel your excitement when you write about the interns and meeting them.
I love your office...what a beautiful space to work. Wow...I love black and white and robin's egg blue together!!!
hugs

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

I do own a bedazzler :-D

No Collins bag or t-shirt but I do have a couple of dresses that have bling on the "yoke" area and the bestest new cell phone cover that is the ultimate bling!!

Bonnie said...

I love your bling but I am afraid I can't pull it off for myself. I'd love some lessons. Where do you shop?

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

Hi Laura!
I love bling, but am pretty simple! My bling is in my earrings and I love wearing shiny lipgloss (does that count?)
You have great taste! I think I am unsure about what to put with what---you are helping me understand :)
I'll bet you had a fun and busy summer!!
Hugs and blessings to you as you make your home!
