Here’s a simple day to night equation: subtract two pieces (jeans and hat) add one (skirt) and it equals a sophisticated, but playful look. I like the ease of this look and the effortless ability to freshen up and be ready to spend the night on the town is so great!
I’ve highlighted my necklaces, also. As you may have noticed I like mixing metals. And unconventional colors (black and brown, black and navy, reds on reds). All three necklaces have significant meaning to me. The silver, an imprint of my home state, was given to me by a best friend that I grew up with. The bronze was my first mothers day gift from my sweet husband: a necklace and charm with my daughter’s name on it. The gold, a unique coin that my dad gave me. To me, the best jewelry are the pieces that tell a story and have meaning. Why not put them all on together? Alone, they are simple pendents that may be lost, but together they make a statement and may cause a stranger to inquire about you a little more.
I hope this not only encourages you in the traveling light department, but in the dig deeper into your jewelry box and layer items that might be less visually “bold” for a completely new spin on an old piece!
Tomorrow: whether you’re hitting Sunday brunch or Sunday church service in a new town, I’m embracing (and loving) one of this seasons trends!
