Making a Statement

Statement necklaces are not something that I've really given a good go at. I know they been on-trend for quite some time now, but I've been opting to stick with my simple chains and charms (which I love) on an everyday basis. However, when I stumbled upon Jewliqu and found their amazing selection of statement necklaces, I could't help but want to incorporate one into a very casual outfits (which let's be honest, I could pretty much live in jeans, a long top, and cardigan).

I love the pop of color and style this collar necklace brings to an otherwise staples only outfit, and how it made me feel a little pushed out of my comfort zone. Now that I've conquered the statement necklace trend, I feel that I can do anything! Pass my comps exams? Check! Find an amazing job by May? Check! Turn 25 without having a quarter life crisis? Big check! Let's do this!

Yesterday Scott and I took a little mental health day (after I finished class and he finished up doing his taxes). I spent some time looking around a few favorite shops, had a delicious salmon salad (ps I never ever liked salmon until very recently, so I felt quite proud of myself for gobbling down my salmon salad while listening to the sweetest older southern lady talk about her funky colored nails to her rather conservative husband), and may have splurged on a few new beauty items. We also went to see Warm Bodies last night, which we both fully enjoyed (although, the eating of the brains and body parts just wasn't my cup of tea). Today we're back to the same old routine of the homework hustle!

What are your plans for the weekend? Have you seen warm bodies yet? Are you into statement necklaces?

  1. My friend gave me a statement necklace for Christmas. At first I wasn't sure I'd wear it, but have found myself reaching for it often! It's nice to step out of the comfort zone once in a while.

  2. Love your outfit so much :)

  3. I love this look! Now you have me looking to find a perfect necklace like that. All of my statement necklaces are on long chains, but I like this a lot!

  4. Turquoise stones look so lovely! I love how statement necklaces can transform a casual outfit into something new and fresh.
    I just had my reading week break and I'll still be doing homework this weekend too. funfunfun.


  5. Haha. If you need a supportive friend during a quarter life crisis... I'm your girl. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt! ;) Btw, I love the statement necklace and that side part is super adorable on you!

    Love, Blair
