The life of a freelance writer isn’t nearly as glamorous as TV shows make it out to be, however occasionally I like to break away from my usual sweats & work-out wear and dress up a bit.
I’m a Virgo who doesn’t like fussy clothes, so I like to keep my wardrobe pretty simple. I like lots of grey, black, white, & stripes, with some animal print thrown in for good measure. When the lovely people at Majestical Jewelry offered to send me one of their statement necklaces I was thrilled. Because I tend to live in basics, a gorgeous statement necklace allows me to kick an outfit up a notch with minimal effort. When you work from home and run your own business, “easy” is key!
A few weeks later, this gorgeous Leaf Bib Necklace arrived on my doorstep, along with a matching pair of earrings. Although the website describes the colour of the beads as “pink” they’re actually a gorgeous red with just a hint of coral. Whether it’s lingerie, clothing or shoes, when I do wear colour red is one of my favourites. (How they knew this piece would be perfect for me, I have no idea – but it is. I blame magic.)
What really impressed me about the piece is how high quality it is. Statement necklaces are everywhere these days and cheap imitations abound. This necklace is the real deal. The beads are gorgeous, it has a nice weight to it without being heavy, and it sits flat on your body without a lot of twisting & shifting when you move.
I had a lot of fun styling this piece and found it surprisingly versatile. To show you guys how I would wear it, I’ve come up with four different looks for you.
See, I wasn’t kidding when I said that I love stripes. As you can see, I’ve just barely mastered taking a selfie so I won’t be launching a career as a fashion blogger any time soon. However, sometimes it’s just fun to review something completely gorgeous and G-rated for a change.
What do you guys think?
