A few years ago, I gifted my mother a few pieces of Kendra Scott jewelry. My mom has a very sophisticated style and loves to wear black and white, so I thought that colorful pieces of jewelry would complement her style well. I was right, and she has since become quite the Kendra Scott fan. Her collection of pieces is fast approaching the size of my own.
The idea, then, of hosting a Mother’s Day shopping party at the Kendra Scott store in St. Louis made sense for me. Last Sunday, I did just that with a few other bloggers.
The local Kendra Scott team knows how to throw a party, y’all. Mimosas, brunch bites, and the most beautiful touches to celebrate mothers were all on deck.
My mom lives at home in St. Kitts, so it was quite special to have her make a virtual appearance in the event. Our moms were on display in the store along with our favorite selections for Mother’s Day gifts.
I’ve been a fan of Kendra Scott jewelry for almost a decade now. Who knew that my purchase of a pair of Danielle earrings in Pink Agate would result in Kendra Scott becoming one of my favorite jewelry lines? As you can imagine, I have since amassed a large collection of jewelry from the brand. I’ve had to become more discriminating when making purchases to ensure that any new pieces I buy add value to my collection. I tend to gravitate towards the most unique pieces in new collections, those items that don’t look like anything else from the brand. Here are a few standouts from the newly-launched summer collection.
This collection introduced a stunning new stone—crushed abalone shell. That stone looks especially amazing on the Lauren earrings and the Layden necklace (shown below).
About two years ago, Kendra Scott began infusing more fashion-forward and edgy pieces into the brand. I was thrilled about that new direction and the pieces it introduced, particularly the new metals. Have you seen the Marci Statement Necklace in Mixed Metals? That’s a statement-making necklace, y’all!
This necklace has a sister—the Monroe Bracelet in Mixed Metals. Both of these items are the kinds of pieces you can throw on and not need any other accessory.
The Sayers Statement Earrings are another fairly unique set from the latest collection. I’m not sure that these suit my style, but I regret not trying them on last Sunday and will be returning to the store to do just that.
