A Little Monday Inspiration

tumblr_msvdbvf1Wn1s4yngxo1_500

Considering that its Monday, and many of us are currently sitting at our desks, and maybe some are toiling away at a job that doesn’t really let them spread their creative wings, we figured there’s no better time for an inspiration post! Wether you are a designer, accountant, or a stay at home mom, there’s always room for some motivational images to jog the artist in you.

It’s that transitional time of year where the leaves are soon going to change colors and the weather will drop in temperature (yes, even in Miami!) New York Fashion Week has swept in like a whirlwind which means it’s time to darken those color palettes and gear up for the end of the year (while designers prepare for Spring.)  We here at Cecilia Gonzales are fully prepared, with an amazing line of gorgeous jewelry to complement any cool-weather ensemble. Check out some of the earrings HERE, on sale for a “secret” limited sale, just in time to stock up.

Here are some beautiful people, interesting photos and intriguing design/outfits that get our gears moving. We hope they inspire you as well!

Happy Weekend- Breezy Looks For Your Off Days

It’s Friday! That magical day of the week that everyone looks forward to. We may be at work now, but later we will be free- free to relax at home, go out for a night on the town,  take all Saturday to tan on the beach, or to lazily stroll into brunch sunday afternoon. We work all week- so we deserve the weekend. What else do we all deserve for working so hard? Jewelry!

We’ve put together a few looks perfect for any weekend. There’s the Friday “I’m at work now but will definitely go out later” look, the Saturday beach-y look and of course a pretty Brunch dress.

Wearing a comfy T-shirt and denim shorts? Pile on the bangles and chain wrap bracelets, tie on an ultra-long necklace, and really dress up your day look with some dainty gold earrings! Don’t be afraid of over accessorizing- the dressed down outfit balances out the amount of jewelry.

DSC03871Wether you’re heading to the beach, taking a trip to the park or having lunch with the girls, a flowy wrap skirt, a light tank, a couple gorgeous necklaces (and comfy shoes!) are all you need to dress up your Saturday of leisure.

DSC03854DSC03852

Sundays were made for brunching. The late morning/early afternoon meal is best enjoyed with mimosas, good friends and of course an eye catching statement necklace to make those friends just a little jealous! Pair with some sparkling stud earrings for an effortlessly chic look. Sundays never looked so good.

So what comes next for my new jewelry pieces have a lot to do with some of the many things I see around me, here in Miami and all over South Florida.  I will start with these views to clear my mind.

Things To Do In Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove Florida

Barnacle Historic State Park
A pristine bay-front manse sandwiched between cramped luxury developments, Barnacle is Miami’s oldest house still standing on its original foundation.

The Kampong
With nearly 11 acres of exquisite, flamboyant flowering trees and fruits, this former home and garden of horticulturist Dr. David Fairchild is one of five gardens administered by the Hawaii-based National Tropical Botanical Garden.

Miami Museum of Science and Planetarium
This small fun museum is chock-full of hands-on sound, gravity, and electricity displays for children and adults alike. For animal lovers, its wildlife center houses native Florida snakes, turtles, tortoises, and birds of prey.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Once comprising 180 acres, this National Historic Landmark now occupies a 30-acre tract that includes a rockland hammock (native forest) and more than 10 acres of formal gardens with fountains overlooking Biscayne Bay. The house, open to the public, contains 70 rooms, 34 of which are filled with paintings, sculpture, antique furniture, and other fine and decorative arts.
