Taken

Diamond Ring: c/o Anjolee   Snake Ring & Midi Rings: c/o Shop Lately   Necklace: Macys   Dress: Forever 21   Sweater & Boots: thrifted  
Notice that flashy new ring on my finger? Okay, there are quite a few for today's outfit (I'm definitely liking the stacked rings look), but that diamond wedding ring had to catch your eye. It's bedazzling!
I was lucky enough to receive this bridal engagement ring set from Anjolee to review, and I'm loving it! It's so gorgeous and I can't stop glancing down at this sparkly little thing on my finger. If any of you girls are in a serious relationship and you coupling little nesting birds decide to tie the knot, consider looking at Anjolee rings for a customizable jewelry option!

Here are 3 reason single girls can wear a big rock:
1) It's pretty - Come on, you had to see that coming. It's just so...pretty.
2) You can fend off overzealous suitors - That guy who just won't leave you alone while you're out with your girlfriends? Slip your fancy ring onto your wedding finger and spin a tale of your loving husband. The catch is that this will only work on someone who you won't run into on a daily basis. Use cautiously.
3) When your newly engaged friends start showing off their gorgeous rings you have one to whip out as well!

It's probably weird to be mixing it in with a snake ring and several other rings as well, but I wanted to try and tone down it's appearance for a casual vibe. This is something I wore for a short trip out thrifting with Corina after running some errands. She came down to visit me for a day and it was nice catching up with her. Plus, I got to go to her new place and spent the night doing our favorite bonding activity - watching Supernatural!

Before school started I had quite a few days spent just hanging out with all my friends and socializing while I could - because the mayhem has begun! Spring semester is in full swing now, and I'm juggling 19 credits, working on Senate events, and a weekend job. Yup, back to the ole grind!

In other news, Sarah and I dyed our hair! Haha, she went for a chestnut-blonde color while I took a leap and attempted a dark reddish brunette. Yup, you'll have to see it once I get it photographed. I'm quite pleased with the result since I've been craving a change for a while now!

So exciting that you've dyed your hair! I can't WAIT to see how it turned out! And this diamond ring is beautiful, I like that you paired it with your other stackable rings! I can definitely relate to starting a busy spring semester-- I hope the rest if your year is amazing!

Wow, your plate sounds quite full! How do you manage all of that?! Seriously. I started blogging after uni when I found myself with all this spare time haha. Good for you!

And I LOVE this outfit. It's totally me. And you too, I suppose! I love the classic gingham with the boho pieces. And those boots! You look great, Linda.

Ali Hval said...

Oooh what a fun thing to get! Rings are fun to wear, haha, I see nothing wrong with wearing a diamond even if you're not married or taken... just sounds like another standard created--ok I'll shush lol lol

Ooh Linda, these pictures are especially cool. I love the yellow backdrop and your black and white look! I actually remember trying on that same exact dress once, but it was way too short on me! Aaah, I shall live vicariously through you as you wear it. Cute, cute Linda. :D

Your dress is adorable as usual, but I can't stop looking at your rings, madam. I'm particularly in love with your snake one. It lends just the right amount of quirk, and no, there is never a thing as wearing too many rings. ;)

I can't wait to see your hair! You have such a peachy skin tone I bet the red looks AMAZING on you.

love,
a

Haha I'm just starting to hit that awkward age where everyone I went to high school with is suddenly getting married and having children and I'm just over here posting my OOTD photos online. SO I can totally relate to this post.

Ravishingly

katie said...

Haha, once you go red, you just keep going reder. :). I'm excited to see you in your new redish brown hue! On another note, I didn't even realize that was an "engament" rock, you mixed it with your other jewelry so well that it looks very you.

I don't think it's odd you mixed the "fancy ring" with the snake ring. You rock it. =)

I am loving the quirky mixture of rings! I have never been one to wear rings, I hate the feeling of having things on my hands (no idea what I'm going to do if I do ever get married), but I do love the look. Also loving that plaid dress!

Maiken said...

oh, it's a pretty ring and I remember Anjolee. they wanted me to review earrings I think but unfortunately they don't ship to my country. at least they didn't back then. anyway, since you combined it with other, more casual pieces it doesn't look too fancy and goes beautifully with your whole look. I like the smart combo of your tunic and vest!
