Turning Heads #Linkup-A Statement Necklace


Hello Ladies! Welcome to another friendly edition of #TurningHeadsTuesday. I thought you may enjoy a solid color!! Look, stare, absorb and take it all in. It is not a floral or a pastel . As Seinfield would say, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!”.


Red Dress from Victoria’s Secret. My favorite summer fringe sandals from Payless. Thanks to Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust who told me about them!




Necklace from Zara. I just love it, I find that it can be worn to really dress up a look, been looking for a black necklace I liked for a long time, as I am picky about my jewelry! #zara ( found on Poshmark)

It has been so hot here lately in Charlotte, and is supposed to continue to be near 100 degrees until June 29th, so I could have taken shots at a lovely place by the Lake we went to have lunch. However, one of my fears as a fashion blogger was, by the time we got there, I would have sweat stains throughout this dress,, my hair would be flatter and frizzier, and no makeup to speak of!

I do like warm weather, but lets face it, it makes trying to look elegant and stylish a tricky thing! When one steps out of one’s house and there is bound to be perspiration instead of inspiration, it just isn’t pretty,but sometimes unavoidable. So, these are by our house, and I needed to wear a solid, and I was in a red dress kind of mood. This necklace, I bought from Poshmark, was purchased to wear to an event I have coming up, but I couldn’t wait to try it out. I love the layers of black stones.

She is has two children and is married to “the love of her life”. This girl’s got style!

    The necklace is a stunner, and looks fabulous with the dress. It’s a very glam look, in spite of the hot weather. I can certainly understand the challenges hot weather poses, I start getting really uncomfortable when it is nowhere near as hot as what you describe…
