Choose it, Style It, Shoot it... The Love Necklace by What I Bought Today

We're loving an all gold jewellery look at the moment and it seems one of our blogger ambassadors, Anneli of the blog What I Bought Today is in agreement. We asked her to style up one of our most popular necklace designs, the love necklace, and along with some of our gold stacking rings she's put together a great easy weekend look. She's made double denim look pretty damn stylish and the gold tones of her jewellery compliment the subtle shades of her outfit perfectly. Read more about Anneli's styling tips below...

"I was so pleased to be asked to be one of the blogger brand ambassadors for Anna Lou of London! So much of the range is right up my street, and fits perfectly in together with my existing jewellery. I chose the dainty ‘Love' chain, which looks great together with other gold pieces on my wrists and hands, to complement the overall look" Love Necklace by What I Bought TodayWhat I Bought Today gold jewellery"I also adore the more chunkier gold trio ring, which I layered together with two simple gold rings.

Top Mother's Day Gift Ideas

There are only three more Sunday's until that all important mothering Sunday and if you haven't yet thought about what you are going to treat yours with, we are on hand to help. So here's what you already know... - Your Mum is pretty special so she deserves a special gift. - Ideally you'd like something unique that she can keep for a while rather than a throw away token. - If you can get something that she will love without breaking the bank that would be even better. Check, check and check. Here at Anna Lou of London we've been in the gifting business long enough to know what's really important, and further more we know the type of items that will raise a smile on the day. Mothers Day Gift Ideas As a result we've only gone and reduced all of our 100% silk scarves by half price just in time for Mother's day - don't say we aren't good to you! It's the Mother's Day must have item - it's beautiful (100% silk, great quality), it's timeless (a silk scarf is chic at any age), versatile (so many ways to wear it), thoughtful (a gift like this shows you really put thought into it) and, most importantly, it's now affordable. Did someone say perfect? There's 11 different styles to choose from, from classic monochrome prints to bright blue scenic pictures, so you can be sure that she won't see her best friend sporting the same one three days later, and there's 3 different shapes, meaning you can opt for the chic neckerchief or the long slim. It's a no brainer right? You can shop all of the scarves here and if scarves don't quite suit your mum then take a look at all of our Mother's day gift ideas here.
