I-D-A-H-O

Necklace: c/o Maya Brenner Designs // Glasses: c/o Firmoo // Jacket: The North Face // Gloves: Target // Top: Express

Idaho. The Gem State. It's a good place to be. Four seasons, a desert-like climate, friendly faces, not too much traffic, great places to eat, and the valley I live in is surrounded by beautiful foothills—which are currently white with snow.

I received this necklace back in December, and I haven't wanted to take it off since. People tend to get my sister and I confused (we're only a year and six days apart), but when I visited Seattle in the beginning of January for my Farfar's remembrance, no one had to guess which sister I was—the Idaho sister. Instant win.

Idaho, I love you.

I absolutely love this necklace! I have a birthday coming up - I might have to add the Nebraska one to my list!

I also realllly like your nail color - what color is it? I'm guessing an OPI gel color?

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

sara, you're awesome. the nebraska one is cool, a bit wider than idaho, but still a great piece. i want the diamond one! ha!

and yes, it's opi gel. how did you know?! it's big apple red. BUT from now on, no more gels... just polish so look for more colors/art soon!

I want that necklace. I mean, obviously for Texas, but still. That is so cool! And purple looks amazing on you!

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

thanks, laura! it's my favorite color!

Krysten said...

That necklace is super cute!

Chelsea said...

What a fun necklace! I love that you love your state. Idaho is a state that I cannot ever see myself going, simply because no family or destinations are there that I would visit. Isn't it sad how many great places are in this world that we would never know about otherwise? Now I know a little bit more about Idaho :-)

Fashionistarookie said...

I LOVE that necklace!! Definitely need to look into adding that to my collection.

Gina Alyse said...

Loving this post! The necklace is so cute and I'm loving your purple jacket!

Erin Campbell said...

Haha, very cute idea especially for twins or look alike sisters :)

Laura said...

Mine too! I'm working on a blog design with purple in it!

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

well, just know this-- if you ever do come for a visit, you have a place to stay ♥ you can float the boise river with me, see some of our national forests, and even ski bogus basin or sun valley!

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

ah can't wait to see it!

Rachel G said...

Your new design is looking great! I just got my own blog design changed last night--it was pretty exciting! And so many people get my sister and I mixed up. People are often asking her about how she's liking married life and....she isn't even married!

I love this necklace so much! It's so sweet + simple. And here's a question for your last post: How did you start reaching out to sponsors, brands, etc.? I'd love to hear more about that because I think you do a wonderful job of keeping your relationship with your readers authentic + genuine. I admire that! xo, eliza

Laura said...

I can't wait to actually get started on it! Yay for weekends!

Whitney H said...

Wow, this is so pretty! I was hoping for one of these for Christmas, but maybe I can get one for V Day? :)

Jenn said...

Idahomie! I am wearing the same necklace right now. It makes me happy.

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

YESSSS Idahome... and Idahomie. Everything about that [especially us being twinners] made me smile!
