#baubleoftheday

If there’s one thing I adore more than my own jewelry collection, it’s seeing your gems on Instagram—and I’d love to share them on the blog! Tag your jewelry photos with #baubleoftheday and @bedknobsandbaubles​ (so I can find it later) and I’ll post a roundup showcasing a selection of your beautiful baubles. I’d love to do it weekly, but we’ll shoot for monthly until this catches on!

It’s pretty obvious that I’m anxious for warm weather, considering my Instagram is overrun with flowers and nautical stripes. What can I say? I know what I like. Here are a few of my favorite March moments:

  • Adding a pair of trendy pearl earrings to my collection
  • Purchasing a bouquet of tulips, my favorite flower
  • Wearing this Gerard Yosca necklace with just about everything
  • Springing for a gorgeous vintage cocktail ring
  • Working on an upcoming April collaboration with Gerard Yosca—there’s even a giveaway in it for you
  • Splurging on a pair of Tory Burch shoes that match almost everything in my closet…
  • …and loving how they look with this Emma McKinstry necklace
  • Swooning over a surprise gift from Meghna Designs
  • Arranging a vase full of daffodils

It’s depressing to go through my photos and realize that we barely left the house in February, but it’s even more of a downer knowing that we were shut-ins in January too. Until it’s warm enough to leave the house, here’s another month of at-home highlights:

Instant Replay: September 2013

Obsessed over pink and green

Cheered for the Badgers // Harassed the cat (and reviewed a set of pajamas)

Found the perfect black skirt // Coveted this pair of vintage earrings

Wore navy nail polish every single day

Caught up on my favorite magazines // Stacked itty bitty rings

Challenged Dave to a game of cribbage // Mixed polka dots with leopard print

Was reunited with my beloved glitter loafers

We’re back from D.C.! I’m looking forward to a much-needed day to relax and let my sore feet recover from all of that walking! In the meantime, here’s a peek at what we did along with some of my other favorite memories from August.

Purchased flowers at the farmers’ market // Spotted a mermaid door knocker in Old Town Alexandria

Shopped in Georgetown // Sampled beer at Great Taste of the Midwest

Goofed around in our room at the Loews Madison Hotel while Dave got ready for the day

Saw a patriotic horse in Alexandria // Sipped a midday craft cocktail

Wore these versatile Kendra Scott earrings with everything // Went to the ball game in D.C.

Took one last photo of Alexandria before our return flight

Instant Replay: July 2013

I can’t believe it’s already August. July was a blur with two mini getaways: visiting my parents in northern Wisconsin with an impromptu drive to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula of Michigan and a trip to Chicago. I’m looking forward to a few weeks at home before spending Labor Day weekend in D.C.

Lake Superior // Rebecca Minkoff camera case for my DSLR

Still obsessed with metallic shoes // Enjoying chocolates that were almost too pretty to eat 

Even if jeweled collars are falling out of vogue, I still love mine.

A beautiful weekend in Chicago

Sipped on Golden Monkey beer by Victory Brewing Company // Splurged on an Hermes bracelet

Enjoyed a lazy evening at the pool - my favorite way to end a summer day.
