Engagement rings match with everything

I fell off the map.

Sometimes, that happens with blogging.

Every once in awhile, real life kicks in and initiates a time when you need to step back, take a break and reevaluate things a little. For me, everything happened at once. A trip to Europe, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, moving, and a proposal from my now fiancé. Did I mention this happened all within a few weeks? Yes, sometimes life gets you that way.

I have to say, although I often blog about how to dress, trends and other style secrets I can say without a doubt that an engagement ring matches with EVERY outfit. Cute dress? Oh it goes. Just my PJs? Well, there’s nothing wrong with a little extra glam now is there?

Engagement rings match with everything!

Needless to say, if you’re a blushing bride or hoping to be, don’t be surprised to see a lot more posts in the “Bridal” section in the coming year. And if you are an Arizona Bride, please do share your tips and secrets!


P.S. A special thanks to Oliver Smith Jewelers at Gainey Ranch for creating this absolutely stunning engagement ring.  They are truly just lovely people there and their jewelry is amazing. Not engagement ring shopping? In addition to Oliver Smith creations (like my ring, pictured above) and custom-design work, they also carry high-end jewelry faves like Chopard, Hermes, TagHeuer and David Yurman, to name a few.
