Fashion Friday: Statement Necklaces

Statement necklaces are making a big comeback right now. It seems like everywhere I look, I’m finding more and more unique designs for statement necklaces. They truly come in all shapes and sizes now. From the extremely oversized to the mildly avant garde, statement necklaces are a great way to take a risk when it comes to fashion. While it may be scarier to wear a really whimsical dress or top, there’s something much easier about trying dramatic jewelry because it’s still such a smaller scale risk.

The photo above shows some of my newest statement necklaces. They are all very different, but I’ve found occasions for wearing them all. I bought all of these on Amazon. As I was shopping on Amazon, I was so pleased by the variety of styles and price points. It’s a great way to find some eclectic jewelry pieces. These cost between $8 and $23 a piece, which just can’t be beat.

However, if you’re more interested in seeing the jewelry in person before you purchase (which is totally reasonable), I feel like these are literally everywhere anyway: department stores, specialty boutiques, thrift stores, even Target and TJ Maxx. Whether you want to spend $12 or $2000, there’s a statement necklace option for your budget.

As I was visiting my parents the other day, I was talking to my mom about statement necklaces when my dad interrupted with the question, “What statement are you trying to make?” I thought about this for a while before answering, “I guess I’m just saying, ‘Look at Me!'”

While he was amused with my answer, I’ve recently been thinking that this is only half of the truth. Yes, statement necklaces are noticeable and are great for obtaining attention, but they are also an interesting way to express yourself. They’re wearable art. The intricate metalwork and combination of embellishments are sometimes like sculptures.

Anyway, these are just some of my thoughts about statement necklaces. Is this a trend you want to try? Do you have a favorite place to shop for statement necklaces? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Trend Alert: Blue Jewelry 

I used to wear a lot of jewelry, but I just haven’t as much lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but I suspect I’m getting lazier or I just lost interest when I stopped wearing my engagement ring. So, recently, I was browsing Nordstrom‘s website for inspiration, and I found a major trend in jewelry: the color blue! Now, I’m not really into the color blue (I think because my eyes are green, I just gravitate towards greens and purples instead), but I wanted to share some of my favorite picks:

Would you wear this trend or do you prefer different types of jewelry? Do you tend to wear the same jewelry or do you like to change it up? Be sure to let me know in the comments section! As for me, I’m going to try to wear at least one piece of jewelry daily and see if I can get back into it again.

Thanks for reading!

Mother’s Day Classic Gift Idea

Mother’s Day is tomorrow! It’s a great day where we celebrate the woman who has been there the most for us in life. I love my mom! We’ve become close friends since I entered adulthood, and we celebrated early by seeing a matinee show of the musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical this afternoon. Still, I wanted to share a sure-thing idea with you in case you’re still scrambling to find a gift last-minute.

I have always thought that pearls exude a timeless elegant. I know that my mother always classes up an outfit with a strand of pearls when it needs to be extra fancy, so maybe that’s why I associate pearls with my mother. When I saw these earrings at Nordstrom I instantly thought that they would make a great mother’s day gift. First, they are a steal at $45! Also, they have a great classic look from the brand Nina. While the pearl is imitation (obviously, for that price), the crystals are Swarovski, which add another nice touch.

Happy Mother’s Day to any mothers who might be reading this blog!
