Summer is so so close, I can almost feel, taste and smell it! And taking my summer clothes out is probably my absolute favorite part of the year. Nothing can stop me from changing out of my sweatshirts and cardigans into dresses and rompers! Not even the finals coming up! However, summer clothes aren’t the only thing, accessories, especially jewelry are definitely at the top of my priority wardrobe needs. Having packed most of my things away (by accident or in a packing frenzy that come and go), I discovered myself with only a couple pieces to wear, one of them being my FitBit. I quickly decided that it won’t do. So when Uncommon Goods reached out to do another collaboration, I was more than happy to pick out some new summer accessories.
I chose two pieces by the same designer, Nancy Nelson. One of the pieces is a Love Birch Cuff that I’ve been eyeing for almost 2 years now, ever since I learned about Uncommon Goods. And the other one is a Bee Love Necklace. See there is a romantic side to me, you just didn’t know about it 😉 It’s not blue lipstick and beanies every day after all!
If you’ve never heard of Uncommon Goods, they are a company out of Brooklyn, New York. UncommonGoods endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people. All of their operations are run out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, they pride themselves in paying their lowest-paid seasonal worker 50% or more above the minimum wage. Uncommon Goods support and provide a platform for artists and designers, half of what they sell is made by hand. Most of the jewelry products, home décor and table top items are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. Now you see why I love them?
One last thing, if you are looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift, look no further! They offer a great selection for under $50!
