Make A Statement

As I was preparing this post, I noticed there was a common thread....the statement necklace.

The statement necklace is a great thing.  It can take an otherwise ordinary outfit and make it something a little more special.  Dress up a simple tee or add some panache to a basic work dress.

Also, if you're short on funds, put your money in accessories.  They can add new life to your old duds without spending a fortune.

  1. I just love seeing your weekly outfits. So, so cute! I need to put more $ into accessories. I'm kind of a ditz when it comes to what looks best with certain items.

    1. Awww, thanks so much for saying means a lot! The accessories "concept" is relatively new for me...but I'm learning! :o)

  2. I love all of these outfits!!!! And, I totally agree with you about statement necklaces!

    1. Rynetta, you are the statement necklace queen! :oP

  3. Great looks! I totally agree...statement necklaces are the best way to update your wardrobe!!!

    1. Thanks Jenni!
      It's amazing how you can totally transform an outfit with the right piece of jewelry. and there are so many great and affordable options available these days!

  4. Such good advice ! I have definitely been stocking on some statement necklaces. I love how they dress up any outfit. I almost bought those glitter flats and now wish I did!

    1. Ah, the glitter flats...such a great purchase! So cute and inexpensive!! I'm eyeing the J Crew Lillian glitter wedges...definitely not inexpensive, but I think they would go with literally everything.

  5. so gorgeous! i love how each necklace just finished off the outfit perfectly. xo P

    1. Thanks, P! It's amazing how the right accessories can totally complete and tie a look together.

  6. Great jewelry choices for each outfit! I saw the bracelet version of the tortoise flower necklace and thought of you! I personally didn't love the bracelet on me, but would definitely consider the necklace.

    1. You know me, tortoise or animal print and I'm in! :o) I wasn't tempted by the bracelet, but the necklace was a different was love at first sight!!

    1. Thanks Lala! It seems the trend has continued with this weeks outfits as well! Hey, I guess when you find something that works, you stick with it, right?! :o)

  8. As always so hard to pick a favorite. I love the kate spade necklace and outfits 1-4. I may need to look into the group deals. I tend to gravitate to a statement necklace look myself. The other look I am sporting this summer is a bracelet stack. I've found I can put them on my left arm and it doesn't bother me too much. I picked up the sunflower necklace in the limey color and the circle tortoise during the precious promo. I would have bought more during the double stack ( sounds like a Wendy's burger) but they were already wiped out. Thanks for the outfit ideas. The navy eyelet capris are in route!

    1. Definitely, look into the group deals...the two I've signed up for are, Groopdealz and Very Jane. I've only ordered from Groopdealz so far.
      Ah yes, the bracelet stack...I like that look too! and like you I find it works better on my left arm. Though sometimes it gets annoying at work with them banging against the desk and computer.
      Yay, for the navy eyelet capris...I've got some more ideas stashed away for them, so keep your eyes peeled. :o)

  9. Statement necklaces are definitely my favorite way to accessorize. They can turn an ordinary outfit into something in an instant! Loving your necklaces!

    1. Thanks Maria! Yep, such a great way to liven up your look! BTW, best of luck...wishing you a smooth and speedy delivery! I know you can't wait to meet your little guy face to face! :o)
