Thank you to Theresa of Magnolia and Vine for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.
As a busy mom of two, I never know what my day is going to look like. Usually, you can find me working from home, wrangling the kiddos, checking e-mails on my phone while playing Little People on the floor with my 14-month-old. Since I work from home, it would be so easy for me to fall into the trap of wearing athletic wear or yoga pants every day of my life. Now, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that... if yoga pants are your jam, by all means, work it, mama! I never know if I'll wind up being asked to do a last minute networking thing, or if I'll run into a potential business partner, so I try to look put together and professional at all times.
Part of looking put together for me means pulling my outfit together with jewelry. You don't have to dress up to look professional. In my line of work, I have to dress in a way that's comfortable, so that I can still take my kids outside to play, but also that also works to go have coffee with my teammates or a potential client. A patterned pair of shorts, a cute pair of sandals or flats, and a t-shirt can have a totally different look when worn with the right jewelry.

I love jewelry, and over the past few years, I have really grown fond of bracelets. Necklaces have been hard for me to wear since having a new baby. I had forgotten how much babies love to pull necklaces, and I have already lost a few favorites to Baby S. Lucky for me, I have been gifted some beautiful new jewelry pieces from the lovely Theresa P. with Magnolia and Vine.
If you don't know much about Magnolia and Vine, here's a bit of background information about their fabulous company...
We believe that every woman is beautiful and unique. To support that belief, we designed a collection that is completely interchangeable. A line that lets you customize the pieces to go with your personality, style, fashion sense – and most importantly – your flair.
We founded Magnolia and Vine to give women the opportunity to express themselves and to help them reach their dreams of running a fun, flexible, and successful business. We want you to look great, and to succeed in being your own kind of woman. -From Magnolia and Vine
I received a beautiful package of goodies from Theresa, and couldn't wait to open up each piece.
Theresa also took the time to include a Magnolia and Vine catalog, a Care Tips card, and a handwritten note.
The fact that Theresa went above and beyond for me tells me how much customer service truly means to her. She is a woman who cares deeply about her customers and wants to make sure that they are fully taken care of. You're not going to get that same service or a personal touch if you're jewelry shopping at a big box store or at the local mall.
Theresa surprised me with a beautiful necklace- the Cordially Yours Necklace, and three interchangeable snaps.
The cord is black, vegan leather, which is perfect for me right now. Since Baby S loves to pull at my necklaces, there is very little risk in wearing this pretty piece. The leather cord is strong, and if she pulls on it, it's not going to break. I love the longer length. Long necklaces and chains are on trend right now, and this style is easy to wear with just about anything.
The coolest thing about the necklace is that the pretty disc in the middle actually holds different snaps. It's 18mm in size, and you can simply select the different snaps that you'd like to wear with this necklace, and swap them out as you please, achieving a different look each time!
Simply press your snap into the Cordially Yours Necklace, and you have ready to go style!
It couldn't be easier to change up the look of your necklace with Cordially Yours! The necklace is just $29.99, and then you can purchase as many snaps as you like to achieve those dazzling looks. Theresa sent me three beautiful snaps. The lovely pearl colored snap is the Sierra Ivory Fleck Snap, which is $8.99. This pretty snap is my favorite of the snaps that Theresa sent to me. I tend to wear a lot of black, and the ivory snap is a beautiful contrast.
The Cordially Yours Necklace has a whole new look with the Sierra Ivory Fleck Snap.
The Bijou Aqua Snap is the perfect accessory for summertime!
If you like aqua, you will love to gorgeous Bijou Aqua Snap! This pretty snap is from the Magnolia and Vine 2017 Spring Collection, and offers a stunning showing of aqua blue. I am a beach girl, and this beautiful blue reminds me of the gorgeous waters down in the Gulf of Mexico and throughout the Caribbean. Honestly, it makes me want to book another cruise! We're waiting until Baby S is a wee bit older before we attempt another family cruise, so in the meantime, this pretty snap offers me a piece of serenity in those blue waters in a quick glance! This snap is available for $8.99.
Get another fabulous look in a snap with the Sunseeker Snap!
This is another favorite of mine, and I have actually been wearing the Sunseeker with the Cordially Yours necklace a lot. This stunning snap pulls in both silver and gold and a pretty gray pearlized center. It emulates both the sun and a beautiful flower. This snap is available for $8.99. I love wearing this one with a simple t-shirt or tank. It's so pretty, and needs very little help, as it looks fabulous all on its own.
This is just a sampling of the snaps available from Magnolia and Vine.
The snaps shown above from the Magnolia and Vine catalog are mini snaps. The original snaps are 18 mm, also come in a variety of shapes and colors. I love how easy Magnolia and Vine makes it for women to express themselves through their jewelry. I can change out the snaps and get a whole new look without having to buy an entirely new piece of jewelry! This saves a lot of time and money.
Other snaps I love...
Garden Floral Montana Blue
Vino Snap (I need this one!)
Loving the way the Siera Ivory Fleck Snap looks with my Mama Boss t-shirt! This is a fun way to dress up a casual look for everyday!
The awesome snap jewelry is just a part of Magnolia and Vine's extensive line of jewelry. They also have beautiful Beaucoup jewelry in a variety of colors, if snaps aren't your thing (though the snap jewelry is amazing!).
Take a look at the gorgeous Beaucoup Bracelet!
I am a huge fan of bracelets! I lead worship at my church on Sundays and hold a microphone for a good length of time. I like to wear a little bling on my wrist as a focal point. It may sound silly, but it actually helps me to feel a bit more confident in what I am doing.
This particular Beaucoup Bracelet is in the jet/silver color pallet. This is a set of five bracelets that can be worn together, or individually. I love wearing them all together, personally. The bracelet features grey, silver, and black. There is even a small black tassel that dangles from one of the bracelets. If you follow trends in jewelry, you already know that tassels are hugely popular right now. I have already worn this bracelet several times, and have received numerous compliments on it. To say that I love it would be an understatement.
Check out the coordinating necklace! I am loving this piece and hope to add it to my collection, as well!
I wanted to quickly mention these beautiful custom snaps! Magnolia and Vine gives you the option to customize snaps from photos! Now you can wear those precious memories, anytime you wish! This is such a sweet gift idea!
