bar earrings, horizontal bar necklace, triangle necklace, crown ring all c/o LilahV Jewelry
Because occasionally, we all need a reminder that we're fucking awesome.
I scored these gorgeous pieces from the LilahV Jewelry sample sale, and when they arrived late last week, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I've been obsessed with jewelry in geometric shapes recently, and these two necklaces are perfect for layering with other math-inspired pieces, while the bar earrings are super chic and will go with just about everything.
My favorite piece, however, is the crown ring - since The Boy and I split up last fall, I've been looking for a special piece - a totem to remind myself that I am ruler of my own life; something to remind me that who I am is important. While we were together, I felt like I was constantly breaking myself into pieces, giving up bits of myself and what I needed/wanted to live my life based around his needs and "limitations" as I tried to force myself into the representation of what he wanted in a partner. There were happy parts, sure, but for the most part, I felt like I was repressing who I really was to fit into his ideal image, and there was no way that could lead to long term happiness. I've seen so many of my friends do the same thing, and now that I'm out the other side of it, I'm having a hard time understanding why such amazing women feel so unworthy of love in their true forms.
So I've spent most of the last year contemplating just who I really want to be, thinking about what makes me happy and what I want to do with my life. I can't say that I have a specific answer yet, but I do know that I am a kickass, cool, sexy, intelligent, fun-loving, adventurous, passionate, sarcastic, funny, stylish, boundary-pushing, risk-taking, horizon-searching, beautiful woman with a killer fashion sense, deep love for the written word and the most wonderful baby girl in the world. This simple little crown ring is a symbol of that, a reminder that I wear at all times to always allow myself what I deserve because I'm fucking awesome.
