Accessories for a Casual Day

I’ve worn this sweater on the blog before, but never with these fun accessories.

Sweater: Old Navy
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity
Boots: Thrifted
Ring: Old Navy
Necklace: The Sapphire Bee

I loved how big this ring was when I saw it in the store. Yet it’s light, and not at all cumbersome. It’s folded fabric, and I bet I could make one just like it! Sometimes it’s easier to just buy something ready-made though.


I got this empty cage necklace from Brittany at The Sapphire Bee. Brittany is a blogger and artist and student, in addition to creating and selling jewelry. She sounds like a Jean of all Trades to me! Sometimes though, we can’t do it all, and I don’t see anything in her store right now. I hope she sells more soon. I really like her designs.

I’m a proponent of “emptying cages,” so to speak. I enjoy wild animals in the wild, not in zoos, circuses or at places like SeaWorld. So, to me, this empty cage represents hope for a better future for animals. I like looking at it and imagining that a little bird has flown to freedom.

  1. Love that top and it looks good with jeans! The ring adds a bit of spring. I’ve never seen one like it, quite unique, and I agree, sometimes I’d rather pay someone to do their craft and I get paid to do mine–teaching dance.

    Your empty cage is a meaningful necklace to wear, besides looking pretty, it’s a good conversation piece and hopefully a day will come when animals will not be confined against their will, but be free as they are meant to be. ♥

    • Yes, it’s more effective to get paid for what you do best and pay others for what they do best 🙂 It’s definitely a fun ring!

      I like subtle conversation pieces, and this necklace is just that! Thanks for your comment!

    Cute “empty cage” necklace. I’m so intrigued by your sweater. Both the colour and the flared sleeves, very unique.

    Looking great as always!
