Addicted to Statement Necklaces…

Ever since I started paying more attention to how I dress, I’ve found myself stocking up on statement necklaces. They brighten up basics and make you look like you put a LOT more effort in your outfit than you really did! Here are my 4 most recent additions:

ZARA Combined CHAIN Necklace – I love the combination of blue and green in this necklace – it’s gorgeous!

ZARA bib statement necklace turquoise
Original here (mine is the turquoise version)

Wearing it:

Forever21 Studded Tweed Jacket, GAP jeans, Target leopard heels, Michael Kors Selma bag

ILY Couture Bloom Necklace: I bought this during their recent sale ($16 rather than $68!!!) to wear with maxi dresses on our beach holiday BUT I found myself loving how it brightens up my rainy day fall outfits too!

Ily Couture Bloom necklace
Original here, Identical from Bauble Bar for $36 here

Wearing it:

Old Navy Sweater, Garage Jeans, Hunter Original Gloss Boots

Crystal & Mint Necklace: I’ve seen this necklace on a lot of US sale sites such as VeryJane – I think it was inspired by a J.Crew necklace.

My version from eBay, Similar here and here

Wearing it:

Old Navy sweater, H&M shirt, Target Mint jeans (similar), Old Navy flats

Green Tessellate necklace: Now this necklace I know for sure was inspired by a J.Crew original. I found a white version at Winners last year – and I wore it so much that I decided I needed an emerald version too!

My version from eBay – just search for “tessellate necklace”

Wearing it:

H&M shirt, Garage jeans, Old Navy leopard flats (similar here from Target)

And as seen in my closet organization post, this is the jewelry organizer I use to store my necklaces…did I mention that it’s double-sided? So there’s definitely space for more – not sure if that is good or bad!

    I'm addicted to them too because then I only have to wear one piece of jewelry and leave it at that! Love the 3rd necklace the most and love how you styled all of them! xx Easy Outfits, by Pip

    I couldn't agree more! You should see how many I have! I love j crew and designers who are replicating many of their styles are great too. I'm such an addict! I really want one from ily couture, but it's pricey. Hope it goes on sale! I love seeing your outfits on IG 🙂

      I love the necklace organizer because it makes it so easy to choose the best necklace to go with my outfit. It's so easy to slip necklaces in and out of the pockets.

    I'm addicted to statement necklaces too; just wish I could wear them more often (Aubrey loves them so much too that whenever I wear them she tries to take it for herself). I have the crystal necklace in white but it's SO pretty in mint too! I love that ON sweater- gotta grab one of those for myself! I'll go vote now. Best of luck!

      Ha ha – so funny about Aubrey trying to take your necklace…I was basically jewlery-less when the twins were under one – they tore one gold chain so I learned my lesson LOL!

      Thanks Esther! I especially like wearing the tessellate necklace with tops that are too low cut – an easy cover up!
