Golden + A Giveaway {Closed}

There's something to be said about the look of classic gold jewelry. I admit I used to steer the other way, but now I can't get enough.

{Top: Francesca's (old), Cardigan: Old Navy, Leggings: ON Maternity, Boots: Steve Madden (old), Necklace: c/o Loopsway, Bracelets: David Yurman, t+j Designs}


This gold layered link necklace from Loopsway is now an instant go-to in my jewelry collection. It pretty much goes with anything. I can jazz up any outfit with this simple accessory, which makes me love it. Loopsway has a great selection of pretty jewels and all at affordable prices. Today, Loopsway is giving away one piece of jewelry of the winner's choice to one lucky Always Maylee reader!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
I think I've officially entered the 'uncomfortable' phase of my pregnancy. Granted I still feel pretty good 90% of the time, but this baby is taking up a lot of space in my body. My stomach and lungs are squished and I feel like I need to pee every 5 minutes. Of course, I'm willing to be uncomfortable for the next 2 months if it means baby girl will continue to grow and be healthy. But does she need to be kicking my bladder all the time!? Yes, yes she does apparently.

Oh, I totally agree about the gold jewelry! I basically only wear jewelry in gold now :) You look so chic, Yi-chia! What a fun print top--it matches so well with that cardigan and I love those stylish boots. Sorry to hear about your discomfort at times, but I admire your positive attitude! Praying for a safe and more comfortable final 2 months!

Kathleen Harper said...

I totally used to feel a similar way about gold jewelry - I always opted for silver instead and pretty much stayed clear of gold. But recently I've been on a major gold kick and I love it! This necklace is beautiful on you and i love the bright colors you're wearing! Have a lovely start to your week!

Sarah Hartley said...

You and me both, sista! This baby is so unforgiving! I swear the majority of the time I get up to pee, sit back down and immediately have to pee again. And the waddling to and from the bathroom is getting really old. I'm pretty over pregnancy at this point. Plus I definitely don't feel as cute as you look! I used to be the same way with gold jewelry too. But now I love it!

Ellie said...

Your top is adorable!

I felt the same way about gold jewelry, but have also recently jumped on the band wagon and have bought a few gold pieces, haven't worn them yet, but when you're home with a newish born, not much getting ready happens :)

You're in the homish stretch! If you're like me, then you only have 6 weeks left!
