Fashion Washington Feature

FW_March2014 Feature_Blog

 

We are loving our feature in The Washington Post’s Fashion Washington Magazine! Our Sandy Necklace #1 adds a fresh twist on beautiful classic freshwater pearls with  a vintage beach motif  belt buckle side focal piece. Being such a versatile piece, you can wear the Sandy Necklace with any outfit! Our favorite? Jeans and a white oxford paired with a navy blazer. Style Tip: Wear studs or small pearl/gold drops for a perfect jewelry combination. Due to the limited nature of the individual vintage belt links, be sure to get yours soon!

Summer salad lovin!

We’re committed to a healthy lifestyle and eating right but we have to admit that eating healthy can sometimes be a drag. Yogurt, greens, and 90 calorie granola bars are great and all but let’s be honest – the thought of pizza can sound pretty good after a morning of trying to eat right.  Here at KJ, our favorite way to stay fit and trim but also satisfy our taste buds are salads, particularly, the Strawberry Walnut salad from one of our go-to recipe sites “Sumptuous Spoonfuls” (picture below).

All you need is a basic salad mix (we personally love arugula and spinach) as well as strawberries, almonds, feta cheese, and balsamic dressing.  Mix it up and serve it chilled!  We also like to add some sautéed onions for a little burst of flavor.

You can find our other favorite recipes and low-cal eats on our Pinterest page! Let us know your favorite salad recipe too!

Get a look worthy of Daisy herself with some of our very own vintage looks including our Sandy Necklace #2 ($158;right).  The timeless beach-themed vintage gold plated c1960 belt link, lemon quartz, and freshwater pearls will be sure to catch your Gatsby-like man’s eye.
