Layer It On

Nope, today we’re not talking clothes (although I am wearing them in this post, don’tyouworry). Today it’s all about the jewelry.

I think y’all know that I have a penchant for statement necklaces. There’s nothing quicker or easier than adding one bold accessory to instantly make me feel like I actually put effort into my look. But what about dainty jewels? Don’t they deserve some love too?

Sure, they’re not as eye-catching and flashy, but I think they add just as much visual interest to a look. Plus piling them on won’t make you look coocoocachoo like layering a bunch of statement pieces would.

Yea, they’re a little more work. (Heaven forbid I have to clasp three necklaces rather than one!) But they certainly make me feel feminine and girly.

So let’s give some love to the un-statement jewels: dainty, classic, and sweet. I’m going to make a point to put these pieces back into rotation.

    i much prefer the un-statement necklaces, i like dainty necklaces for subtle pieces here and there, nothing that screams here is my necklace, do you see my necklace? is it big enough for you to see? i love the necklace you are wearing

    I always feel like statement pieces make my neck look short- so I love the dainty pieces. I have a silver one with a little dangly heart that my husband got me a few years ago, and it’s my go to piece for most outfits.

    I do love the little arrow one you have!

    I am loving your outfit! I definitely have both that top and the sweater, I’m kinda a J.Crew addict {I’m on the road to recovery though, hehe}. Have a fabulous weekend love!

      I LOVE these necklaces… I have atclauly ordered three of them! (Crazy, I know… I ordered two and then the Glitter Guide one came out and I had to have that too.) Can’t wait for them to come!
