Half top-knot, half bun, half up half down, half updo…whatever you call it, I’m crazy excited that my hair is finally long enough to do it! I used to live in top knots when my hair was long, so this feels sort of like coming home after a very long trip – easy, familiar, comfortable…yes! And so nice to finally have a quick dirty-hair solution ( don’t judge 😉 and don’t judge the roots ;)) Speaking of excited, I’m super thrilled about my new necklace from Chrissy and the lovely gals at Layered + Long. I’m not much of a jewelry kind-of-girl, but I wanted to something to wear, something close to my heart, to show my love for my little ones.
I’ve been searching for something delicate for ages, but haven’t come across anything that spoke to me, that is, until one day when I was browsing Etsy and stumbled upon Layered + Long. I found myself oohing and aahing over all the beautiful, delicate pieces. I was (barely) able to narrow it down to two – a personalized Extra Small Skinny Bar Necklace and a Tiny Gold Triangle Necklace
I wear the pieces 24/7, and am absolutely in love. And, fyi, they are the perfect gifts for baby showers! Want to snag one for yourself? Of course you do! And you’re in luck, because they have so generously offered a coupon code for all BLANQI girls! Just use BLANQI10 upon checkout for your special discount, and enjoy your own piece of Layered and Long.
About the mama behind Layered + Long:
“My name is Chrissy Lavdovsky, and I’m the designer of the jewelry brand Layered + Long. I live on a cliff overlooking the ocean in the historical town of La Conner, Washington. My jewelry line focuses on delicate, minimal necklaces that look elegant on their own or layered with other pieces. I like to play with the juxtaposition of feminine and edgy and combine strong geometric forms and clean lines with touches of sparkle and color. I’ve always had a strong need to create; my primary inspiration is making things that people love. I was that kid who would make the teacher some crazy over-achieving present (that she had no idea what to do with, I’m sure). I graduated with a degree in art history, then ended up at Goldman Sachs selling bonds in Chicago. It didn’t take me long to realize I should be pursuing a more creative path…It all began on my living room floor with my 2-year-old and dog beside me. I found selling on Etsy to be the perfect outlet for me, and Layered + Long quickly grew into what is now: my dream come true.”
