Make a Statement

Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend! Today’s OOTD is centred around this striking necklace hence my title make a statement.  This piece is definitely an eye catcher with the gold and turquoise tones, two things I’m really loving at the moment.  Most of my accessories are on the simple side so I needed more of a statement piece to add to my collection.

    I love a good statement necklace as I prefer them normally over dainty ones, but I love your flared jeans paired with these for an even more bold statement. Thanks for linking up to “Bloggers Who have Inspired Me” today.

    The necklace is so beautiful, and I think you’ve styled it so nicely! A black top and denim bottom can never go wrong, but I love how you chose a flared bottom instead of the usual slim cuts! You look great!
