New Jewelry In the Shop
Come take a peek of the new jewelry in the shop! This summer was crazy with our move, and I had to put my shop in storage with the transition. This jewelry collection was my summer collection. So once I got the shop out of storage, I hesitated whether to release these styles, but I really love the raffia and beading in this collection and also the leather. So much texture! I thought it would be best to catch it with the end of summer and it’s been doing well! Come take a peek of the new jewelry in the Darleen Meier Jewelry shop or click on the shop link above! Your support means so much to me, and I love see the jewelry on you so if you follow my shop IG page, don’t forget to tag with #dmjewelrylove .
Thank you to Lo Elledge Photo for the beautiful model picture and my model Kate Richards for her beauty and smiles and letting me borrow her neck, ears and wrists!
White Summer Dress
Obsessed with the dress. The white summer dress of course! Such a trend this summer, the white summer dress comes in ruffles, embroidery, pom poms and billow sleeves. I love all the details I’ve been seeing around on white summer dresses. The white summer dress that I am wearing does not disappoint! Its the perfect thing you will need for a summer vacation, wedding or dinner night out. I’m obsessed with this dress.
Also, a new collection of jewelry is in my shop! These pieces have a Havana style and are fun and colorful. Pom poms and tassel pieces mixed with dainty, gold metals. The cute pom pom clutch can be found in my shop. I am also wearing the tassel earrings and triangle ring. Come take a look!

Business Casual Fall Outfit
The last few weeks I’ve been switching my mom sweats for business casual fall outfit to wear to some conferences that I’ve been attending. It’s been fun to have a reason to fully get dressed for the day. Slimming jeans and black slim pants are usually my go to keep it casual. Heels, blouse and a nice blazer then gives those pair of jeans a professional and businesslike impression. I am loving these open-toed, suede tassel heels . I found similar ones for only $35 and Amazon is selling them for only $75! The are perfect for fall and look great with a pencil skirt or jeans. And I must they are pretty comfortable. Finishing off this look with simple/statement pieces from sites such as JACOBSTHEJEWELLERS.COM makes all the difference. Doesn’t my mom have good taste? We just won’t tell her that! Many offices now allow a more business casual outfits for their employees or have casual Fridays. Blazers are also not a requirement for business casual fall outfit, but if you like wearing them it’s a nice touch. The blazer I am wearing is old, but I linked a similar one. Long cardigans or tailored sweaters are definitely good to wear in the fall months with short sleeve shirts underneath, just to keep you comfortable in the cool mornings and then once the heat hits you can remove layers. As always to dress up any business casual fall outfit, don’t forget the accessories! I am excited to now be carrying this leopard faux fur print clutch in my shop that comes with a leather tassel. Prints are an easy way to take a classic colors and bring to life the outfit. This clutch does just that and can be wore with so many other outfits. In the shop post scroll listed above, I linked another leopard clutch, but if you buy in my shop it is only $48 and is less than half of what I linked above. Score!
I am also excited to be adding a whole new line of charms and personalized pieces to DMJewelry. This chunky charm bracelet will be added to my shop in the next couple weeks. But if you happen to be at Pinners Conference in Salt Lake City this weekend, I will be exhibiting my new line of charms pieces so you must come and see and say hello if you happen to be SLC local. Also, I am giving a 15% discount to all my followers who come and buy!

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts
Mother’s Day is this weekend, and if you are like me I’m always figuring gift ideas at the last minute. Thankfully I have a mother that loves my jewelry, so she usually picks a piece or two out, which makes it easier on me. But the gift she cherishes most from her children are personal letters and notes telling her how much we love her. And I have to admit that I love little love notes from my children, along with the art pieces or projects they made with me in mind.
If you’ve got an hour or two to spare before mother’s day, make something special for your mom. Here are a few last minute mother’s day gifts that are handmade with love:
- Make an abstract art piece using her favorite colors. If you have children, get them involved to make the art piece more personal.
- Take some of her old costume jewelry and repurpose it into a new jewelry piece she will wear.
- Make a constellation jewelry tray with her birth month and take it one step farther and put a constellation necklace in it.
- Get creative and send her flowers in a floral terrarium.
- Dress fancy and buy matching southern hats and take her to a tea house for a fun afternoon. Or host an intimate tea party with all the ladies in her family recognizing Mom.
- Make a sequin pillow with your family’s name on it or her favorite saying.
- Make a gift basket with a theme…like a cooking theme with favorite recipes and bottled jams or bathtub theme with homemade scrubs and oils
Other traditional ideas are potted flowers in painted planter’s pot, a digital scrapbook (you can even do this at cvs!), charm initial necklace with children’s initials. So many options to truly make it a personalized gift that mom will cherish and remember for many years to come!
Or you can always wrap up something pretty from my favorite mother’s day gift choices:

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. So much love and more love and of course chocolate and more chocolate! Don’t worry though if your partner isn’t a chocolate lover, perhaps they love something else (obviously you)! With there being so many gift options out there, choosing a gift for your loved one may seem a little stressful. Thankfully there are now plenty of inspiration blogs like giftunicorn, designed to give you gift ideas for any occasion and any kind of recipient! But it is important to remember that it is the thought that counts. Whether you get them a personalised blanket (or personalisierte decke for my german readers) with photos of some of your favorite moments together on it, surprise them with tickets to see their favorite band or create a scrapbook, it is completely up to you what you choose to give them on this day. We’re sure they’ll appreciate whatever they get.
I love chocolate, other people love seafood… Anyway, I’ve rounded up easy Valentine’s Day gift ideas that don’t cost much but a simple and sentimental. Like this What I love About You booklet that I’m going to fill out and give to my husband this V-day with instax pictures that I will tuck into the pages.
Here are some other fun, simple Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas:
