Simple Statements (+ Giveaway!)

Sunday, February 22, 2015

So I have finally returned from an amazing trip to Italy only to be greeted by the Northeast's unending series of winter storms. Is spring getting any closer? I'm crossing my fingers for a yes

In the meantime, today I'm sharing with you one of my new favorite statement accessories that is also quite outside of my comfort zone. I've been on the hunt for a pearl choker necklace since seeing one on the fabulous Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit because of its simple yet bold statement. I have mentioned before that the accessory makes the outfit, and this piece is no exception. I was so excited to find that My RedStraw offers the necklace at an affordable price that doesn't sacrifice quality. I've paired mine with a pinstripe crop top and camel coat for an outfit that is ready for a night out. In such a simple way, the necklace adds a touch of personal style to the look that will surely turn heads.

Necklace: c/o My RedStraw | Top: Forever 21 | Coat: Forever 21
