I can still picture myself, in 4th Grade, wearing purple oversized glasses and my blue floral dress, dancing, waving a flag and singing to a patriotic song on stage. Ah, fond memories! Now, if only I knew where that picture was! I do think of the 4th of July as being the real kickoff to Summer! I love grilling out, enjoying summer wines, taking a dip in the pool, vacation time and just enjoying the sunshine. With Summer here, there are less layers to our outfits, so wearing unique, one of a kind jewelry is another way to make a statement! Today I am wearing some unique glass Murano jewelry from a brand in which I introduced to you previously, Uno Alla Volta. Meaning one at a time, the artisans of the company creates something special with each piece. You can read the previous posts, HERE, HERE and HERE.
I do love to show my appreciation and love for my country by wearing red, white and blue, but in an elegant and subtle way. Hana’s Patriotic Flower Necklace, with its red, white and blue Murano glass flowers is made with memory wire giving it a delicate and elegant shape. Its light design gives it an airy feel, perfect for summer months. “Hana, Uno Alla Volta’s Georgia artisan takes inspiration from nature and the traditional Bohemian style of glassmaking to design these exquisite pieces. Once the design is complete, she collaborates with her partner artisans in the Czech Republic to bring her artistic vision to life.” **credit website
The lovely white glass flowers earrings ( Hana’s Patriotic Flower Earrings) will go with anything in your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Taking the necklace’s motif, it is a perfect match!
I am wearing a soft chambray off the shoulder shift dress with wide statement sleeves I bought on ASOS. I thought this soft denim was perfect for that “All American” look. I love a great shift dress. There are some dresses that can look a bit shapeless, so with a shift dress, you want one without much extra material, that fits your body.
Yes, my favorite pair of white espadrilles are getting a lot of wear!
A deep blue glass and silver Murano ring, that is adjustable, completed the set. I love the sparkle of the blue glass. “On Venice’s famed isle of Murano, our artisan Lorena and her family, masterfully handcraft this colorful deeper blue ring. Each ring is crafted through lamp work tradition, with bright Murano glass and sterling silver.” *website Una Alla Volta carries the ring in many colors: pink, gold, turqouise, red, green.
If you love this Bohemian style glass necklace but are looking for another color scheme. Uno Alla Volta has this “Blue Leaves” necklace with dark and light blue leaves making a stylish statement. They also have “Hana’s Czech Glass Butterfly” necklace, in shades of pink, lime and lilac.
We went to Raylen Vineyards over the weekend for their 4th celebration. We left early, packed a lunch and had one of their newly released summer wines, a Viognier 2017. It was so refreshing! A dark black sky seemed to emerge and before you know it, we were making a run for it, to the car. I am glad we went early, as we did get to enjoy the day.
