For a girl that is so deeply in love with neutrals, I sure missed on incorporating nudes, creams and tans in my wardrobe for long enough. But as it is never too late to refresh your wardrobe with what you love most, I plan on investing in more pieces much like the pants I recently bought from Zara in the months to come. Other than that it has been raining cats and dogs, I have been reading “The Secret Garden” for the past week, I have been indulging in both healthy and less healthy recipes, I’ve been contemplating the idea to cut some of my hair, I’ve worked hard and I’ve enjoyed little moments for myself. For a better idea of what I’m talking about, Instagram is always there to account my activities.
Wishing you a lovely week with less rain and definitely more sun <3
I’m talking about one of my newest fashion crushes here, as I somehow managed to neglect this category over the past two months. I know that this statement piece gained her first fans quite a few years back, but for me – the subtle jewelry loving type – the transition was a little bit slower.
I started by liking this trend as worn by celebrities on the Red Carpet, when suddenly the statement necklace became a key piece for any respectable fashionista, as the street fashion took a new spin. And as it is easier to admire trends on others, rather than actually giving them a try, another while past between me acknowledging the trend, and me actually feeling comfortable wearing it.
Below you can find a short selection of beautiful necklaces that I would love to wear during Spring or Summer this year, and also my favorite ways of centering an outfit around the jewelry piece.
1. Piperlime – Beaded Statement Necklace in Aqua Green – $24
2. stella & dot – Birds Of Paradise Necklace – $ 133.50 (on sale)
3. Threadsence – Tahitian Goddess Necklace – $22
4. ASOS – Silk Cord and Looped Statement Collar – $32.23
5. stella & dot – Cortez Bib Necklace – $49 (on sale)
Although styling an outfit with a chunky necklace should be fairly simple, considering the infinite options we are given, paying extra attention to details won’t hurt. The right necklace should fall right into place either you are trying to achieve a super casual look, or an extra sophisticated one.
My favorite ways of wearing this jewelry piece :
“There’s a place I know, If you’re looking for a show, where they go hardcore and there’s glitter on the floor” … sounds familiar ? Of course it does, for mainly two reasons : 1. it’s Kesha – Take It Off (great party anthem) and 2. it could be the place everyone’s talking about these days, or haven’t you been already asked ” Where are you going to celebrate the New Year’s Eve ? “. Sure you have, it’s the top question of the month.
So, all throughout the year I’m IN for the comfort, the flats before the heels kind of comfort, always (almost), and that of course has got to change. It’s just got to. And I’m going to end 2011 and start 2012 with a fresh approach, like a lady and instead of wearing super duper comfy shoes, I’m gonna go for heels, black ones. That’s just because I don’t own anything glittery, I would have loved to add some sparkles to the fresh start. Maybe next year.
But that didn’t stopped me from virtually “shopping” or better yet “researching” for the perfect matching heels. What I found were 16 beautiful pairs of shoes, perfect for New Year’s Eve celebration, or any other celebration that is, so I thought I’d share my findings with you, for a little bit of inspiration.
