I’ve never been big on astrology, but I’ve always loved astronomy and learning about the breathtaking celestial bodies that hang above our heads. One of my favorite classes I took in college was through the Naval Academy on campus called Marine Navigation, wherein we learned how to navigate a boat (or ourselves) using the stars. I used to spend hours in the observatory and planetarium, and star gazing has become even more enjoyable now that I know some of the constellations by name. My constellation, Gemini, is beautifully celebrated in this Alex & Ani bracelet, which is one of the more accurate depictions of the twin star sign I’ve seen in jewelry. My birthday was last weekend, and I felt inspired by the beautiful starry sky that appeared on the anniversary of my birth, and I wanted to reflect some of the colors and stars in my outfit!
I paired my $8 blue and white striped dress with a few handmade Lapis Lazuli bracelets, and a raw cut Kendra Scott Lapis Lazuli Rayne necklace (similar here, here and here). Lapis Lazuli is said to bring wearers creativity and wisdom, both of which I could always use more of!
You can shop this look (and this $8 dress!) below!
I absolutely love this vegan leather backpack, because it not only has a vintage feel to it, but it also is the perfect size to carry my camera equipment, wallet, phone, and whatever I else I need throughout the day. If you order a Daniel Wellington watch like mine, you can get free shipping and 15% off your total purchase with code “ANNIEWEARSIT”!
Thank you for reading, and happy birthday to all of my fellow Gemini!
