Happy Tuesday friends!

If I’m being completely honest fashion is not one of my strengths. I have a killer “my style” pinterest board, and can appreciate a fabulous outfit as much as any girl, but when it comes to actually buying clothing and especially jewelry I freeze up. I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, and seem to always retreat back to that because I never feel like I could “pull off” certain outfits.

I’ve also been overhauling our entire home and cleaning up the products we use from food brands, to makeup, and even bedding and clothing. I am trying to be more intentional with purchasing quality products and feeling educated with where they are all coming from.

Because of a fresh amount of white space that comes with decluttering “all the things” that we don’t need and don’t bring us joy, and a desire to have a wardrobe with only pieces that I love and make me feel good I am quickly approaching a much more minimalistic approach to clothing and jewelry.

So when I learned about AUrate Jewelry out of New York I instantly fell in love. AUrate is an online-driven jewelry brand that is handcrafted in New York that pays impeccable attention to detail and quality with each of their pieces. They use ethically sourced 14K and 18K gold, diamonds and pearls, and create simple yet simply beautiful pieces that you can literally wear with any outfit, even if you are a jeans and tshirt kind of girl like me.

Another thing that makes AUrate special is that with every purchase, they give an underprivileged child a book. A book for your look as they have deemed it! Check out this amazing video about their initiative here.

So here are my favorite picks in a sort of Tamara’s Summer Jewelry Wish List kind of way!

Their X Ring is just stunning, y’all. You can find it here.

Being a southern girl, I love pearls! I love the simple, but modern take on the classic pearl stud! Find these here.

The simple lines of their Inverse Cuff can instantly dress up any outfit.

I’ve always loved a Simple band with diamonds around it. This sure would be a fabulous anniversary addition to my wedding rings…Husband, are you reading today?

Lastly, I picked out their Gold Bar Necklace. Perfect to wear with a LBB for a fancy date night or once again a t-shirt and jeans wearin’ mama headed to the grocery store.









These timeless pieces and AUrate as a brand make my heart sing friends because not only are they simple and beautiful, but hand-crafted with ethically sourced materials, and with each purchase an underprivileged child receives a book to read. That’s what I call an intentional purchase.

Guess what?! I have been given a discount code to pass on to y’all! How exciting! Just use “AurateExclusive10” for a 10% discount!

Happy shopping friends!
