Queensland-based fashion blogger Kristen of @hudsonandharper is a whiz at making everyday fashion for the 30-plus inspiring and fun. We chatted with her to learn more about her personal style story and her thoughts on jewellery, Dubai and keeping organised. 

What’s one thing you’ve learnt about your personal style recently that surprised you?

I am very much one to not step out of my comfort zone when it comes to fashion and, of late, I have been experimenting more with styles, colours and prints that I would not normally choose. It is such a great feeling to try something totally different, especially when it works for me!

You must have a huge accessories collection! What’s your tip for keeping jewellery in order – or not?

I am very much one for order, I am quite OCD. I keep my jewellery in their original boxes in a larger plastic box in my wardrobe.

What’s the one piece of jewellery you’d feel naked without?

It has to be my wedding rings, I never take them off!

The NAJO brand is spiritually, aesthetically, historically tied to Mexico. If you had to pick a country that was like your “spirit animal”, which would it be?

This is such a fun question, I have never thought about it.  After thinking, it would be Dubai in the UAE, because I love the finer things in life and love to surround myself with beautiful things. I enjoy the comforts of a superbly decorated home and clean living space. I am an urban dweller, and really appreciate urban architecture.

How would you describe NAJO sterling silver jewellery in three words?

Exquisite, feminine, playful.

What’s your sterling silver jewellery style preference?

I mix it up – sometimes I love the barely there look and other times I love the less-is-more look and having a big statement piece.

What’s your favourite way to wear silver jewellery – dressed down or dressed up?

I love KISS (Keep It Simple Style), so I very much dress down jewellery by wearing it with my everyday wear.

Finally, what is your favourite NAJO piece and how would you wear it?

Oh wow, this was super tricky because I LOVE so many pieces. One I absolutely adore is the Desert Dreamer ring, such a feminine and exquisite ring. I would wear this ring on my middle finger on my right hand.  I love a statement ring and in this case “KISS” applies for me. This ring mixes with so many outfits too, even the one I am wearing on this cool rainy day (my star knit with my stripe jogger pants).
