Jewelry Swap Link Up!

 Monday, August 27, 2012

One of my favorite things about being a blogger is meeting all the wonderful ladies (and men) who help make up the blogosphere! Since starting The Preppy Student I have met some truly wonderful people and every chance I get I try to meet more and more. There is definitely communities within bloggers and I hope that I can one day become one in the subgroup of "Preppy" bloggers.

When Kendall from The Life of a Not So Ordinary Wife posted about having a jewelry swap I knew I was in. Swaps are a great way to get to know other bloggers through the "secret santa" like experience. For this particular swap we were given one blogger to get jewelry for under a price limit.

I had so much fun picking out my gift for my Swap buddy! (blog post here

The best part of this whole swap? The wonderful Kelli from Eat Pray Read Love sent me the cutest necklace and note! I loved what she got me.

I wore it the next day with a hot pink jcrew t-shirt!

Its a super fun little flower necklace with pearl accents. Its adorable! Of course I had to model it! Anything with pearls is definitely for me and I know this necklace will come in handy for a couple mixers :)

Thanks Kelli!
Would any of my lovely followers be interested in doing a swap? Id love to organize one once school starts!

Excellent written article. If all bloggers offer the same level of content as you , Internet would be a much better place.

Hey girl! I love your blog! I was curious if you have organized a swap, or maybe I missed the boat!

Nice! You’ve got yourself a great deal, my friend. That necklace is chic! I’m sure the previous owner of that necklace got really overwhelmed to see you adore and love that pleasant jewelry. Though I cannot see your whole body, I can say that it looks well on you, and that it is perfectly combined with the color pink. =) Next time, I think you should try pairing it with flowery dresses, too. It’ll be simply perfect.
