The snow is clearing up, but there are a lot of streets and patches where ice and snowpiles are lingering. I can’t hole up all winter, so occasionally I brave the outdoors for a good meal. In this case it was Thai. Spicy noodles and soup were perfect on a cold day.
It can be difficult to stay stylish with all the inclement weather. I favor flat boots when it snows- no sense slipping in heels. I also tend to favor sleeveless or short sleeved things, even in the winter. Although I do really like long-sleeved dresses. I don’t know. I’m just a bunch of contradictions.
The ring on my middle finger is altin place’s wide Koa Wood Ring, which altin place offered for me to review. I asked for it in size 7.5 so that it would fit comfortably on the index or middle fingers of my left hand, my favorite place to wear rings. The sizing is very accurate. My first job in the fashion industry was at an ethical engagement ring designer (I was the hand model, among other things), so I know all of my ring sizes down to the quarter size. It’s common for your fingers to shrink a little bit due to the cold or swell during the summer due to the heat, so I usually rings to other fingers depending on the season. I’ll probably wear this one on my right ring finger in warmer weather. It should fit perfectly.
I have a thing for nature-inspired jewelry– I own various branch rings and even like to let my silver pieces tarnish. This ring incorporates koa wood from Hawaii into a titanium band in order to reduce the chance of warping. On the off-chance that it does warp, the ring has a lifetime guarantee and altin place will replace the wood inlay free of charge. I’m enjoying the way it mixes into my existing collection (perfect opportunity to mix black and brown- black rhodium and brown koa wood!) and the wood inlay makes it incredibly feather light.
I favor bold jewelry, so the Koa Wood Ring with wide wood inlay is perfect for me. However if you like something with a delicate flair, altin place has a number of thinner options and a really gorgeous matching bangle, too.
