I think the statement necklace is what pulled the whole look together and made me feel comfortable to wear the outfit to dinner. For the past few seasons, I have been obsessed with statement necklaces. My philosophy is that they immediately add a touch of sophistication and a little glamour. Some of my favorite places to buy my statement necklaces from are J. Crew (the outlet and sales are the perfect time to buy them), ILY Couture and eBay. I have found some great, inexpensive necklaces on eBay. Just a forewarning, some of them will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. I ordered a necklace hoping to wear it to a concert about a week and a half out and it did not arrive on time, but when it did I was so glad I waited! It was perfect! The one I am wearing is from J. Crew. I got it during one of their sales on their sale items. I think it was originally like $120 and I got it for under $30 (thank you J. Crew sale!).
I am so excited for this week – I am not traveling! And am not supposed to again for about 3 weeks. This is huge! I think the last time I spent this much time in Houston was about 15 months ago. Traveling as much as I do, there are little things I used to take for granted that I am excited to savor while I am in town (e.g., my entire makeup collection and closet to use everyday, cooking for myself and taking advantage of my favorite fitness classes). I hope that you all have a fabulous week! I am going to try and make the most out of mine! 😀
