Be it resolved that there are more important things than looks (obvs), but be it also resolved that when you take a little time to put yourself together (whether that’s a shower, jeans and a ponytail or heels, nails and a blow-out) it feels pret-ty darn good. Especially if you haven’t done it in some time. (Like since last Mother’s Day. Or maybe not even then.) And the cherry on top — besides someone actually noticing; honestly sometimes I feel like wallpaper around here — a shiny accessory or two that expresses your style. Isn’t it fun to find something that feels so you? Or if you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, something that feels so her? Today I’m sharing some of my favourite, so-me accessories from Toronto’s Foxy Originals and a chance to win one to gift yourself or someone you love. Call it a little Mother’s Day TLC from Foxy Originals and me.
I chose three new pieces to show you here, starting with the Lilo ear jackets ($24, available in silver and gold). I love them with a tee and jeans, but they’d go with just about anything.
All Foxy jewelry is cast from pewter and hand-dipped in genuine gold, silver or copper. And I like that the company uses eco-friendly materials and processes, has a jewelry recycling program (the first of its kind in North America!) and supports a number of local and national organizations and causes.
And how cute are these cactus earrings and matching bangle? ($24 each). They’re available in gold too but silver feels more summery to me, so I went with the cooler metal for a change. There are also pineapples, flamingos (I know — how did I not go with flamingos? It was a hard choice!), palm trees elephants and maple leafs for Canada’ big birthday this year, and a huge variety of necklaces (short, long, layered, chokers — all the styles) and other earrings and bracelets.
And as a Mother’s Day gift for everybody, the entire Foxy Originals collection is on sale for 30% off ’til May 8 when you shop online and enter the code MOM30 at checkout. (Fantastic, right?)
