I've been meaning to pick up a statement necklace for ages. The problem is that anytime I looked for one I was confronted with hundreds of necklaces in every shape, color, style and finish and then I'd get all overwhelmed and go take a nap.
I was thrilled when DailyBuzz Style sent me this one. It's crazy versatile and just classic enough that I won't be turning my nose up at it next year (in fact, when my mom saw it she said it looked a lot like one she wore in the 80s and early 90s, which tells me it's got a bit of timeless appeal to it). It's something I wouldn't have picked out on my own but I should have.
My mental dressing room attendant immediately paired it with a pencil skirt, my turquoise booties and maybe red lipstick if I was feeling brave but that didn't jibe with our scheduled weekend at a cabin up north. Instead, I wore it with one of Aaron's shirts and a pair of comfy, old, cuffed jeans. A whole lot of casual + a splash of fancy + riding bikes in the sunshine by the river with my fam. That's a good weekend right there.
BUT! My inner dressing room attendant is not to be ignored (she's kind of pushy) so, just for kicks, here's what I wore for date night a few days later-
|Borrowed cropped tux jacket, Hanes men's tee, Asos skirt, Charlotte Russe booties, F21 bangles|
