Styling Dainty Jewelry.

Top: Forever 21 {old, very similar here} // Skirt: Abercrombie & Fitch {almost identical here!} // Shoes: The Walking Company {very similar here} // Jacket: Forever 21 // Purse: Forever 21 // Necklace: c/o Nava New York // Rings: c/o Nava New York // Nails: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish in SkyLight {old color, similar color here} // Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure 

     In the past, I have been all about jewelry that is big and bold (and sparkly and shimmery!). My jewelry collection shows that I tend to favor statement necklaces, colorful bracelets, and embellished earrings. But recently, I have been starting to add daintier and more delicate pieces into my jewelry rotation. While I think that "louder" jewelry pieces absolutely have their place and purpose in every girl's wardrobe, it can be nice to have some more understated pieces as well. 

     I was so excited when Nava New York sent me two gorgeous items from their beautiful jewelry collection to style! One was the adorable custom bar necklace, which they customized for me on both sides! One side has a bow on it (to represent my blog's logo), the other side says MISS ALK, which is my Instagram name, and also how I sign my blog posts (read this post to learn why I sign all of my posts under this name if you don't know! :-) ). I absolutely adore this sweet little necklace because 1.) it is easy to pair it with so many different outfits, and 2.) I love the thoughtfulness that the team behind Nava New York put into designing it for me! 

      Nava New York specializes in making unique and dainty jewelry for women in Panhellenic sororities. They also sent me one of their darling Alpha Delta Pi rings, and I am obsessed! I have been wearing it non-stop since receiving it. My time as an active collegiate member in ADPi will come to a conclusion in just under a month, so this ring will be perfect for me to take with me from the transition into becoming an alumni member in my sorority. 

     Nava New York has been so kind as to sponsor a giveaway for y'all here on Southern Belle in Training! One lucky reader will receive the same dainty gold twist ring that I am wearing in this post! My ring is of course for Alpha Delta Pi, but Nava New York is a licensed Greek vendor that can make jewelry for all 26 Panhellenic sororities, so you can have the ring made in the letters of whichever Panhellenic organization you belong to! This would also make a fantastic gift for your Big or Little, or a friend who is in a sorority. This giveaway will run through Wednesday, March 30th, 2016
