Necklaces on Necklaces

Statement Necklaces

Style posts are definitely something that I struggle with.  I wouldn't call myself a fashion blogger by any means. I love fashion and finding the best trends for me, but I'm no expert.  Something that I've realized about my style is that whenever I wear a statement necklace, I tend to get multiple compliments and inquiries about where I bought it that day. Let's face it, I wear a lot of statement necklaces.  I may have a few too many in my collection but who's counting.  Statement necklaces are my go-to secret weapon and even wrote about it in an earlier post.

I've gone through multiple necklace phases.  Colored, bulky, chain link and so on.  This seems to be the same with my clothing choices too.  Neutrals have been on repeat for me.  I've been loving white, black, grey and beige.  I feel like a huge chunk of my closet misses me or something, but I can't shake it.  Anybody else get like that?  Anyway, right now I've been wearing a ton of gold and silver.  I also loved mixed metal necklaces.  I used to think that gold and silver didn't go together.  Like you couldn't wear gold and silver rings at the same time, but I've really began to rethink this.

Speaking of mixed metal, the necklace I'm wearing in this post also comes in a mixed metal version.  Part of me regrets not buying that one, but regardless I love this necklace.  Because I've been asked so many times where I get my necklaces, I wanted to put together a bunch that I love to share.  Some are silver, some are gold and some are mixed-metal and all are amazing.  Promise you'll feel great wearing any of these and probably even get a ton of compliments.  Totally a confidence boost.

By the way, if you sign-up for Bauble Bar you get an extra 20% off your purchase!  Once you buy pieces, they give you credits to use on a future purchase.  Totally encourages you to want to buy more jewelry pieces!  It's hard to not get carried away.  Bauble Bar is definitely one of my first places to look when I'm searching for my next shiny something.

Statement Necklace and Leather Jacket

i don’t know about you, but sometimes getting dressed during the work week can seem like the most difficult task, ever.  It always seems this is how my morning goes: Wake up late, jump in shower, struggle to decide what to wear, throw something on, continue getting ready, decide you don’t like your outfit, change and repeat.  Sound familiar? Ya, thought so. 

I’d like to share one of my best secrets.  Throw on some skinny black jeans, a plain tee, your go to blazer/jacket and, now here it is, a statement necklace.  Yes, a statement necklace is my secret to pulling a look together and dressing things up a bit.  Otherwise, I feel like a slob wearing a plain t-shirt to work with jeans.  So, grab a great chunky necklace.  It’ll solve all of your morning problems, most of the time.  It’s also a great outfit that can transition from day to night.  So easy!

By the way, I am not usually a heels-wearing type of person, despite the fact that I'm short and should wear heels more often, and these Michael Kors Heels are, literally, the most comfy heels.   I have them in both nude and black. Hope you have a great rest of the week!
