Statement Necklace Styling and Dog!


Sunday’s outfit was inspired by Dolled Up With Liz’s post, “Never dull your sparkle!” about styling an entire outfit around a statement necklace. So that is exactly what I did, inspired entirely by her outfit. I know this chambray has been featured in my last three outfit posts. I promise that 1) it’s been clean (we’ve hat a lot of laundry to do lately. And I’ve just been tossing it in) and 2) I will let it rest for a while now. I was just so pumped about it!


The necklace is an impressive Forever 21 find. They’re really stepping up their necklace game. Paired with a simple t-shirt and a maxi-skirt, both of which are older pieces. Now that I think about it, save for the shoes, this entire outfit might be from Forever 21. The shoes are Steve Madden. Nice and neutral.

I was nervous to try such a bold necklace at first — I haven’t been one to take too many big style risks — but boy am I glad I did. I love this piece! It’s going to very quickly become a go-to for a little bit of sparkle on even dull days.


But onto the next and arguably most important part- Dog! We have adopted a dog! Her name is Zoe, she’s about 2, and we think she’s a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. She’s such a sweetheart. I’ll definitely be sharing stories about her as we get to know each other better. Stay tuned!

This is Cindy. She's a sweetheart.

This is Zoe. She’s a sweetheart.

–EDIT NOTE– When this post was scheduled, we had only met Zoe, not adopted her yet. I have updated to share that awesome announcement.
