2014 has been a year of blessings and opportunity. I am so thankful for God's goodness and faithfulness after moving past a tougher season in my life. We've been incredibly blessed lately to have so many opportunities to work with talented creative people in Birmingham as well as internationally. It's been exciting to develop so many new friendships and collaborations both here and abroad. This post is particularly special because it highlights some beautiful (and crazy affordable!) pieces of jewelry from a boutique we adore based in Montreal, Shals, that happens to be our first ever collaboration. Scroll through this post and then peruse her jewelry and home decor offerings via her online store and Instagram account, and you'll see why we love her so much. You'll want to note that Shals has just lowered her prices. Yes, lower than the current listings on her website ; ). Very exciting! We've included the new prices for you here in the photo captions. We have yet to find a boutique that offers high quality, beautiful pieces for such low cost. Nothing from her store looks cheap. Quite the contrary. The necklace I'm wearing here, the Emma, is our newest piece, paired with an old, super cozy Gap shirt and athletically influenced denim shorts by Gentle Fawn, which I'm obsessed with, from Manhattan South boutique. Love!
Shals' sparkly pieces look just as lovely with a casual cotton tee as they do with a dressier ensemble. In this post, we opted for a laid back, all-denim theme(!) and had the pleasure of working with our talented friends, Birmingham based fashion photographers Rachel and NoahRay Echols. We wanted to show a different, more personal side of ourselves for this shoot - bare feet, lighter makeup, comfortable. We're so pleased with these shots! Hope you enjoy! : )
Lindsey wears another one of our newest pieces from Shals, the Chare necklace, $20, with a top we love from Manhattan South.

We're also fans of Shals' home decor items, which make nice gifts. We have this mirrored box, this mirrored tray, as well as this mirrored tray on display in our house.
