Make a Statement...

Happy Friday! I have been looking forward to this weekend all week. I need that extra day to work on a little project that I will tell you about next week. I am one to speak my mind, but actually this post is on statement necklaces. Over at Marionberry Style, Marion has made her link up for this month based on the trend of statement necklaces. I looked up "statement" in dictionary and one definition that stuck out to me was its meaning of a nonverbal message. I think that is exactly what a statement necklace does, it is a form of your style you want to portray. Most of the time, statement necklaces tend to be on the bigger side. I guess because this makes them more noticable. In this photo, is one of my newest statement necklaces. It is actually a thrifted necklace and I love it because it has a "J.Crew" feel. I paired this plum colored necklace with my past season mustard flowered dress from Madewell. A statement necklace can enhance any outfit. My favorite way is wearing mine with a simple t-shirt and jeans.

Not all statement necklaces have to be big. One of my favorite statement necklaces is this simple monogram necklace. My husband got this for me three Christmases ago.

Here's a few statement necklaces that I fancy. Which is your favorite?
Anthropologie- Kuychi Necklace
