totally tortoise


It's November!  Oh how I love this time of year...but it's all whizzing by too fast.  I always get a bit nostalgic during these Fall months and start thinking back to the good ol' days.  Every time I see this tortoise pattern I'm reminded of a bracelet I bought in Middle School from a hip & happening store in our little town called 'The Beadery' (it's still in existence and just as cool...) I've always been drawn to the warm coziness of it.  Love the tones: brown, amber, honey...it's very rich and luxurious too.  I was contemplating the MK watch, but ended up purchasing the Anne Klein version instead.  Here are a few beautiful options to add a touch of tortoise to your life:





Do you own any tortoise peices? 
What patterns or colors make you remember the good ol' days?

here's to a warm & cozy November,
