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

  1. That necklace reminds me of Ancient Egypt and those sweet gold-plated things they wore on their chests. I always wanted one...as well as those baller wigs they wore

  2. Love the outfit, both of them. Nice pairing. Your necklace reminds me that I have a statement piece given to me years ago by my daughter. I need to dig it out and see how to pair it up with something nice. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Oh I love that necklace! I'm always a fan of statement necklaces, especially bib-type necklaces like that. So cool! I never would have thought to pair it with a flannel but I love how it turned out.
