stunning statements

My latest obsession? All things big and baubly dangling from my neck--a piece commonly known as the statement necklace.

Statement necklaces come in many varieties, but one route you can go is with a bold and bright color. I love pairing these with chambray tops (something a girl can never have too many of).



But the other pairing I love is neutral metal over a bright solid, which is a look I have been gravitating towards in my work wardrobe. I've worked so hard at avoiding being "boring" when it comes to workwear that everything I buy is a loud, unforgettable, in-your face hue.



Sometimes, all an older blouse from the back of your closet needs is a new, shiny necklace on top to give it new life. In theory this saves money, but in reality...the necklaces that I find always tend to be pricier than your average blouse. Figures.
