Wood Faeries & Pink Champagne

April 9, 2014

Spring is still playing hide-and-seek in New York, but New Yorkers aren’t good at waiting, so spring living is in full swing! Plans to picnic have given way to ventures into the woods, and though there’s not a whole lot of green in sight, being outdoors is still a perfect way to pass the afternoon. Floral dresses, fringe kimono jackets, and little touches of nature are alive and well in my wardrobe, and one recent favorite piece to don is my Koa wood ring by Altin Place.

I wore the koa wood ring while picnicking in the woods this past weekend with my sister-in-law Becca, an amazing jewelry designer and artist (who happens to have the most amazing aqua hair). We packed up some vintage glasses and a bottle of pink champagne with some colorful fabric to sit on, and headed into the woods near my parent’s house in the Hudson Valley. We found the perfect spot alongside an in-progress tree house.

What’s special about the Koa wood ring? Ancient Hawaiians used Koa wood to build canoes, spears and paddles, so it’s not only durable, but it has a gorgeous hue and grain. Mine goes perfectly with whatever I’m wearing, but I especially love to pair it with floral prints.

Aside from reminding myself how much I love drinking pink champagne with like-minded, amazing friends I also realized something: even dressing up like the weather is perfect brings that sunny spring feeling to your day. Highly recommended!

And who knows, maybe we’ll come back and finish that tree house in the summer…
