Spring 2014 Trends in Accessories

Haha, yes I am going there! I am sososo ready for spring and I’m loving the newest 2014 trends in accessories!

And guess who else is ready for spring? Stella & Dot just released their new spring line of accessories, and I am having blast perusing through their latest catalog. Here’s what I’m seeing for spring trends.

1. Statement necklaces still rule the day!

And no one does a statement necklace like Stella & Dot. Take a look! I’m loving the “floral rocker” vibe some of these pieces have got going on. And that Sardinia necklace the bright red one . . . I might have to buy that!!!

3. Chandelier earrings for every day.

I see a lot of chandelier earrings in this catalog! Personally I am loving this trend because my hair tends to hide my earrings unless I wear large ones. And these chandelier earrings are fun and casual enough for daytime wear. Here are a few of my faves.

My friend Jennifer Oxenford is a Stella & Dot rep, and she is sponsoring this giveaway. If you’re interested in hosting a trunk show and earning free Stella & Dot jewelry, here is what Jen has to say:

Basically, you get a group of girlfriends together for some much needed fun and a girls-night in of looking a the latest styles and trends and getting styled by your S&D stylist (me!) No sales pitches or games or anything cheesy at all! Just girls, jewels and some cocktails and fun! Our average hostess earns about $250 in free jewelry and 3-4 50%-off items, so our hostesses earn tons of free jewelry too! Every trunk show gets it own online shop as well that is open for three weeks so people can accept online orders from their friends who can’t make it or are out of town. I do also do online only shows (in fact I have one going on now for a friend of mine in Ohio!!) Email me at [email protected] for more info!

Jen also offered me a piece of jewelry from the new line AND one to give away!! It was a painful choice, but I decided on the Sardinia Bracelet. LOOK how gorgeous this is!


The Sardinia collection (check out the necklace and earrings too!!) were all designed with the Boho Chic influences and in particular something Blythe Harris, Chief Creative Officer for S&D, has called Gypset (a perfect mix between gypsy and jet set). I think I’m more jet set than gypsy, but either way I love it.

I also read in their catalog that this bracelet was inspired by a Parisian piece. Ooohlala!! The cluster of stones makes a bold statement that will be the perfect pop of color with all the black and gray I like to wear.

    I’m a sucker for a statement necklace, so I’m partial to the Elodie Necklace and the Sutton Necklace. That Sardinia bracelet is the perfect pop of color, though. Perfect for spring!

  2. Mandy S says

    I think I love the Devon layering necklace and the Marnie link necklace equally. It would be nearly impossible to choose. :-)

  3. Wendy says

    I just ordered a piece from a friend’s trunk show, and had a hard time choosing just one! I have a wish list, for sure!

  4. Nicole J says

    I’m loving the Sardinia necklace- I have a bunch of Stella and Dot necklaces and I ALWAYS get complements when I wear them! My favorite piece that I own is the Zahara necklace

  5. Kim Kauffman says

    I have been eying the new spring line since it came out. I am in love with so many pieces!! I’m already planning on placing an order for at least the adelaide hoop earrings, the amelie sparkle bracelet and maybe another pair of earrings. Big, statement earrings are my favorite. Although I would have never picked out the bracelet you’re wearing but I love it!

  6. says

    I never buy jewelry for myself, and have never seen anything Stella & Dot before, but everything in this catalog is really cute. I would actually buy this kind of stuff.

  7. Megan says

    I love that coral bracelet. Last year, I was all about the blues and greens. This year, I love the links and corals.

  8. says

    It took me awhile to understand the importance of accessories but now I can’t get enough. A cute bracelet or necklace completely changes the look of a simple top. Thank you so much for your daily inspirations…keeping my fingers crossed. :)

  9. MonaS says

    Love Stella and Dot! The Sardinia bracelet is beautiful! I have the Sardinia earrings on my wish list – you can wear them 3 different ways!

  10. Adelyn says

    I just love love the Sardinia pieces in the collection as well as the serenity stone cuff. Hide the credit cards indeed!

  11. says

    I love everything! But I really like the red Madison tech bag on her page. I’m enjoying looking through all the jewelry. LOVE the red bracelet that you have.
