Petunia Picks: The Garnet Edit

In continuing a tradition I started last year, here are some of my top picks for January's birthstone. Garnet is a beautiful contrast to this cold winter month. This lovely red gem represents friendship, loyalty and sincerity. Wearing garnet has also been known to bring about positive energy pertaining to good health and safe travels. 

What are some of your favorites? I'm personally in love with all things Tory Burch at the moment {well, when am I ever NOT in love with all things Tory?!} I especially adore this coat and the traditional elegance of the handbags in The Fleming Collection.

Happy Wednesday, lovelies!


Some Enchanted Evening {Duchess of Cambridge Style}

Words cannot begin to express how honored and privileged I felt to wear this iconic dress for formal night this past November aboard Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas {thank you royal ties + Tory ties.} I've always been inspired by The Duchess of Cambridge's impeccable style, but stepping into this beautiful black + white dress was truly a regal feeling. It was the perfect combination of elegance and edge. I just adore the lightweight fabric and fringe embellishment at the hem and sleeves. I complimented the dress with this watch, bracelet set (similar bangle here), and earrings. I wore a deep ocean blue ring on my right hand, not as a nod to her gorgeous engagement piece, but in representation of my own sapphire birthstone. I also turned my favorite wallet into a clutch for the night. My heels were a combination of suede and leather (similar here), which brought the look together on this lovely autumn evening. The only accessory I missing was Prince George!
