Black and White is a classic color palette to transition from summer to fall. I hate saying goodbye to my favorite white skinny jeans after Labor Day. To prolong their life a bit, I layered on a crisp black blazer for this breezy Sunday morning. I grabbed a sturdy faux leather bag and slim sandals to add another more fall-appropriate material to the look. I like using my faux leather bag as a cruelty-free alternative to the real leather ones you sometimes see on the market.

I also finally got my first Alex and Ani bracelet the other day! I wasn’t sure if I would get into this stacked energy bracelet trend, but I have to say I love the sweet dangling charm and how it complements my favorite Tiffany’s bracelet. The lotus peace flower represents “illumination, beauty, and resilience.” Such a beautiful message for women so I got matching bangles for my mom and sister. Each bangle comes with a card to describe the energy & meaning behind the charm. Alex and Ani describe the lotus peace charm….

With roots secured in the mud, a stem that grows through water, and a flower that lies pristinely above, the lotus signifies the progression of the soul. Inspiring us to rise from the darkness into enlightenment, the Lotus Peace Petals® Charm also incorporates the higher power of a harmonious spirit with the Om symbol. Let this charm represent cognitive balance and your innate desire to grow spiritually.

I am in love with the inspirational meaning & energy associated with all of the various charms. I can’t wait to stack up on a few more bangles for my set. Although I definitely wear gold & rose gold much more often, I love how casual the silver sets look so I think I’ll stick with this metal for my collection.
