As you know, I love a good clean and crisp outfit, especially in black and white. One of my favorite ways to add some outstanding contrast to a great monochromatic outfit is with an unexpected pop of color, whether it be in the shoes, top, bag or a statement necklace. In today’s look, the star of my outfit is actually my statement necklace.
I’m so excited to be wearing this stunning piece - not only because it’s a showstopper but more importantly, it’s for an amazing cause. I’m very happy to introduce Benevolent Jewels to my readers and tell you guys a little bit about this great company. I wanted to take a brief moment to share how special this company is and why they touched my heart.
As an avid animal lover (especially cats!), I have always been interested in becoming more involved in the animal rescue community. After going through a rough patch last year when we lost our sweet cat Peanut, I hoped that starting my blog would bring me opportunities to meet others that shared similar passions. That’s why when I was introduced to Benevolent Jewels, my heart found a happy place. I love what their company stands for and their mission to seek awareness about the importance of helping others in need, especially our favorite four-legged creatures. Just to give a little highlight of their company mission:
“Benevolent jewels, based in Houston has collaborated with Barrio Dogs in oder to address the issue of animal overpopulation and improving conditions for homeless and unwanted animals in Houston through Unity for a Solution. Unity for a Solution is an effort raised by three established, independent Houston animal welfare organizations: Barrio Dogs, Corridor Rescue, and the Forgotten Dogs of Fifth Ward.”
Benevolent Jewels allows customers to purchase and wear stylish, affordable jewels in order to donate towards a cause. At the end of three months, 20% of their profits are donated to a philanthropic organization.
If you love animals and fashion as much as I do, then you will understand why this company has really made an impact on me. Animals are just like our friends and family, and as someone who has always grown up with animals, I just love where their mind is at. I think it’s only natural that when you combine two of the things I love so much in life together, I’m all in.

When also else fails, blue and black are my go-to dependable wardrobe colors. I always love wearing the two colors together because it’s a bit unexpected how the two darker hues pair so well together with a pleasant contrast.
You may remember my little teaser of what I purchased in Paris here a few weeks ago. Well, I thought this was a good outfit to introduce you guys to my new little love. I had been eyeing this bag for quite some time and while in Paris, I just couldn’t resist. With her beautiful navy color, lush quilted velvet and perfectly petite sizing, I just couldn’t go home without her. :)
My d’orsay shoes are part of the Nine West x InStyle collection and surprisingly extremely comfortable. I was able to run errands and such in these 4” heels for more than two plus hours and was still happily standing with no pain at the end of the day - a winner in my book. Plus, the brighter blue suede added a fun pop of color to my weekend outfit.
I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
