Word On A Fall Jewelry Refresh

What’s the one thing that always fits, you could wear everyday if you wanted to and fits in your budget? Jewelry! Additionally, you can change your entire look with one piece, try a new trend and/or add a pop of color all with jewelry. With Avon’s big fall jewelry update just launching at my eBoutique here’s my word on the top picks to refresh for fall!

Number 1 Pick:  Avon Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

The Avon Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace ($24.99) is a multi strand black and gold statement necklace, that’s really lightweight and easy to wear.  It’s basic colors allow it to be worn with a lot of different outfits the the shiny gold and layers let it stand out and really make a look.  You can wear it with a lot of different necklines an because it’s so lightweight you can wear it all day!  Personally it is very Alicia as well so that’s also why it’s my #1 pick!

Pick #2:  Avon Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

You need those everyday hoops with a little something, these Avon Glitzy Hoop Earrings are it.  They come in gold, silver and rose gold.  My pick is the rose gold because it will still match with your gold items but it’s the on-trend metal of the moment.  Plus those rhinestones play so nicely with the warm tones for fall and at only $7.99 win win!

Pick #3:  Avon Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Cascading multi-faceted stones from a lotus like design are nothing short of statement making with the Avon Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings.  I love a statement earring especially when you’re wearing a pattern or something with an ornate detail/neckline (like all those strappy tanks and lace up tee’s that are in).  These ones are super lightweight for a statement earring so they’re actually wearable for longer than an hr, and they come in amethyst, aqua or topaz and an intro price of $5.99 you could get all 3 colors!

Pick #4:  Avon Secret Escape Necklace

Avon Secret Escape Necklace

Avon Secret Escape Necklace

A Calypso-Inspired necklace may not be a top pick for fall but what I love about this Avon Secret Escape Necklace ($19.99)is its amber toned jewels agains the turquoise will really play well with fall colors, making it an ultimate wear now wear later piece.  Pair with your summer whites and lights now and with your camel and denim later.  It’s a little 2005 in design but maybe that’s why I like it, since I’m a lady in my 30’s now…

Either way, adding in some new jewelry is kinda perfect for your fall wardrobe refresh.  With back to school shopping we always focus on the basics like jeans, shoes/boots, sweaters/blouses and/or maybe a new coat, but we forget the details like jewelry.  You can check out all the new fall jewelry items in the latest brochure from Avon and you might just see yours truly!  If you would like a brochure comment and I’ll send one your way!  Or you can view it all online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

BONUS:  

Monthly Edit – What To Buy In February

If you’re anything like me you constantly feel like you want to just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, but don’t have the budget, or honestly, the closet space to do so.  But I do love new things and being strategic and smart on my purchases, so instead of going all out each season add few key items each month that expand on what you have and keep you trendy and feeling good!  I’ve already shared my must-haves for January, here’s my word on February picks!

 

A new pink lip color and multi-tasking shimmer pallet:

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

Nothing is better than adding a little glow to pale winter skin.  Go with soft shades of pink and shimmer to perk up winter complexions.  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me ($11) is an easy investment plus it wears like a balm so you prevent chapped lips while getting the perfect light pink shade!  Pair it with the mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes ($16) for a super easy look with a super versatile pallet.  Check out my look with it here.

A sparkly statement necklace:

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Sick of wearing scarfs yet?  Try switching out a scarf with a sparkly necklace on those days when you’re not freezing!  Pair it with a chambray shirt for major impact that’s on trend and perfect for achieving the no- quite-spring-yet-look (as in with your leggings and boots).  mark. Clear Choice Necklace ($38) is the clear choice for this (see what I did there) and will work with your winter looks straight through to your summer looks!  {pic cred:  sealaura}

 

A spring scarf:

mark. Four Seasons Scarf

mark. Four Seasons Scarf (and wearing Baby Me on lips)

Not sick of wearing scarfs, then grab a new spring scarf in a lighter weight fabric and fun spring print.  I like the mark. Four Seasons Scarf ($18) because it’s super oversized!  I can wrap up in this baby and stay perfectly warm while wearing a print that just makes me spring-happy.  Plus this guy can transition into spring and summer not only as a scarf but also as a coverup for shoulder baring dresses (maybe during wedding season!?) or even at the beach!  Now that $18 seems even more appealing!

See how long this guy is!

A new luxurious bath line:

mark. Naked Love

LOVE mark. Naked Love

Time to save winter skin and smell fresh for spring!  I can’t get over my excitement for the mark. Naked Love bath and body line.  This is probably my top pick (and favorite body line) in a long time.  Every time I lather up in the shower I’m immediately a little happier AND that gorgeous packaging makes me even more happy!  We’re over those deep scents from winter, but the notes of apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk are perfect for this time of year and beyond.  Whipped Up Body Butter is also super nourishing for winter skin.  It preps us for the upcoming skin-baring season.  This way, when those first few warm days hit we’ll be ready.

 

A chiffon layered top:

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

It’s hard to shop for clothes in February because we’re SO over buying those dark bulky winter items but it’s not quite warm enough for all those new spring arrivals.  So stick with buying tops that can work with many types of bottoms and in soft shades that work for winter and spring.  I’m loving the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt ($28) for these exact reasons.  I can pair this with jeans for a casual look, or dress it up with a skirt or slim fitting dress pants.  The chiffon layer really let’s you dress it up, plus it takes away some of the bulk but still gives you that layered look!  I’m also looking forward to wearing this guy with shorts on those warmer days… like a cute pair of white denim shorts would look amazing with this!

BONUS:  An on-clearance favorite!

February is the best time to shop winter clearance finds!  Some of my favorites from fall and holiday releases are now marked down super low!  Like this top, necklace, clutch, polish set and MORE!  (all on clearance at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)

 

Final Word of Alicia:

None of these items will break the bank (like under $150 for all of them, ALL of them!) and are new and now for February and beyond.  I also love how I can pair them with my January top picks and breath some 2015 life into my 2014 (and older, yikes!) wardrobe.  It’s like a breath of fresh air!   If you can only budget 1 thing this month my pick is the mark. Naked Love bath and body set ($34.99 for 6 pieces).  You can shop the items here and get 20% off with promo code AVONFB20
