Last Christmas I selfishly spent a big chunk of my gift shopping time looking for the perfect statement necklace for. . . myself. I ended up never finding a necklace in my price range and drowned my sorrows in eggnog. Just kidding about the drowning my sorrows – it was whisky, not eggnog. I’m kidding, again!
Bottom line, I never did get my hands on a great statement necklace – at least not until the Southern Blog Society Brunch a few weeks ago. This turquoise Brighthouse Baubles necklace was perched on the top of my gift bag.
The color is perfect. It goes with almost everything I own, which means you’ll probably being seeing it a lot of this blog.
The necklace also matches my cell phone case. Lar bought it for me over a year ago and it’s the only one I’ve ever used with my iPhone. It’s a little chipped on the front, but I love the color so much I refuse to get another one.
I’ve had these Zara heels for a couple of years now. Every time I wear them I get so many compliments on them – from men and women. I used to think it was cheesy when I’d hear women talking about how a good shoe could make their day. After buying these shoes, I totally get it.
Remember last week how a bunch of us Souther Blog Society bloggers styled the same denim jacket? We’ll we did the same with statement necklaces. Check them out:
The only statement necklaces I owned before this one were the ones you left behind. Remember that hot pink/metal Madewell necklace of yours? I still wear it all the time! And those great DIY-ish necklaces from Florence years ago? Still wear those too. I wonder if that store is still around. We’ll have to go find it when we’re there together in August – eek! I get so excited just thinking about it! I’ll try to pack as much fun jewelry so we can both wear statement necklaces in Italy. Just make you you don’t pack those hiking boots 😉
