05 Jun Statement Jewelry-How You Can Improve on a Casual Look
I’m back from the relatives house and we had a good time. Lots of good food, company, and things to do. We saw a parade, went to a great restaurant, watched Memorial Day fireworks and had a cookout. It’s the 11 hour drive home that was a bit tough! I went to a wedding shower yesterday, had a lovely time, and was thankful we didn’t play some of the cheesy games like “Who could make the prettiest toilet paper wedding gown? !”Anyhow, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and I can’t believe it is June already.
Today I am wearing a casual outfit. I’m not always in the mood to dress up, but I want to look stylish and put together. Who doesn’t own a pretty but simple top and jeans? I have several off the shoulder tops, but saw this one shoulder ruffled top at H&M and thought it would be great with plenty in my closet.

I love Sylca Designs jewelry. I have written about them before on the blog, as they are a mom and daughter team from Columbia, making unique earthy jewelry. I saw this ocean blue shell necklace and kept coming back to it. My rule is if I keep going back to look at something, I probably want to add it to my collection/closet. I love the rich blue tones and thought I had plenty it would go with. So the formula here is cute top+ denim ( whatever style you feel flatters you) +statement necklace/jewelry. Think of the jeans and top as a blank canvas and the jewelry as art.
I would love to find a bold silver bracelet to add to this as well. In addition to the necklace, I added texture with my crinkled leather clutch, my new ALDO lace white lace up espadrilles. ( Poshmark- $20! yeah, baby) All of a sudden the look becomes more than a cute top and jeans! Texture is always one of those style elements that takes an outfit from “That’s nice… to wow”! The ruffled lace texture, crinkled leather of the clutch, lace in the shoes and bold shell necklace all add visual interest to an outfit. If I wanted to add another piece to this look, I could add a light blazer for additional color and interest, but let’s stick to the basics for now! And lets face it, it is getting hot in the South!
Speaking of hot, there’s nothing like the feeling of sweat at the nape of your neck, so you may be seeing me try different hairstyles this summer. Ponytail, chignon, etc.
