A Personal Stylist Shares Her Jewelry Essentials

With fall right around the corner and Pumpkin Spice Lattes back on the menu at Starbucks (yes!!), September is one of our favorite times of the year. Although there's so much to love about September, it's also one of those weird transition months where every fashion magazine is promoting fall fashion but it's still pretty hot outside.

We caught up local #GraylingGirl and Personal Style Coach Sara Dahlquist to get the inside scoop on her jewelry essentials as the weather transitions from summer to fall.

Keep it Simple 



"There is so much opulence in the trends this season so when it comes to my jewelry I’m all about keeping it simple, elegant with a touch of originality.  I am obsessed with my Grace Swarovski Crystal Stud Earrings and the Audrey Necklace in ‘Smoky’. It’s the classic take on the diamond stud but in a color that’s a little edgy.  I wear this set together or separately and with literally everything.  They are perfect when I’m in a rush and I have to throw and go but want to look put-together."

Classic, Not Classic 


"It’s always good to have something in your jewelry box that will never go out of style but makes a style statement.  That absolutely describes these Capri Earrings.  I love the simple but interesting shape that doesn’t demand all the attention but it’s not going to sit quietly either.  I get compliments on these everywhere I go, which is a sign of a great purchase."

I'm All Rosy

"It has taken me a season or two but I’m finally on board with all the rose gold. And I feel strongly that you might love it as well.  What surprises me about the rose hues is they look good on just about anyone and they compliment every ‘it’ color of any season it’s paired with so you really can’t go wrong.  The style of this Souk Necklace is so organic, cool and statement-making, I didn’t have anything like this in my jewelry mix which is a great sign that it’s needed."


Convertible Baby

"Who doesn’t love a convertible right!?   Designers have become so innovative and thoughtful about designing, you can find pieces like this Lyra Convertible Statement Necklace at Grayling that converts from one style of necklace to another making this piece beyond versatile for any wardrobe whether it be casual or business.  This one necklace takes me from client sessions to date night in seconds, you can’t beat that!"
