Zara Statement Floral Colorful Necklace and Emerald Maxi Dress



Happy Monday All!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was pretty filled with some fun things to do. We went to our favorite vineyard, ( remember there are over 90+ in NC) with the puppies, as we have been waiting for the perfect day to take them out as to not expose them to so much heat ( the humidity as been high). Raylan Vineyards had music, food and wine, so we were headed there Sat to sit and enjoy the atmosphere and have a good time. The temps were in the low 80s, a cool, comfortable temps for the pups to hang out with us. Sunday, we went to the Charlotte Symphony in the evening for a night of John William’s music under the stars., always a good time. Today’s look shows my new Zara statement necklace and how just adding this one piece can really amp up an outfit.

My birthday will be coming up in July ( July 8th,) My boy Gibson’s birthday is the 7th. Hubby bought me one gift ahead of time, this very pretty floral muticolored silver #statementnecklace with green, orange, and colors that will stand out and also be a showcase for an outfit that doesn’t take much time to think of, with this emerald green maxi dress. I can see why women love maxi dresses, as they are virtually dress and go with the exception of a bag and some jewelry. I commented once that I loved it, and it arrived shortly thereafter. I certainly love it with solid colors to add even more color and sparkle to the look. One could pair this many ways, and I am sure this won’t be the only time you see it on the blog. I have  recently bought a few additional statement necklaces as I have envisioned outfits I would pair them with, they can take one’s outfit to another level. A statement necklace such as this can really change the look of an outfit and pick up various colors as well. Maxi dresses are a dream to wear in the summer. Choose light fabrics and add some fun accessories such as a statement necklace, long drop earrings, straw clutch, a scarf, or/and hat, and away you go!

This color, this sea green colored dress is so lightweight, it is perfect for these hot summer days. The  pictures depict some wind, we seemed to have found the right spot.




Do you wear bold statement necklaces, or are do you prefer small, elegant pieces?

Join me tomorrow for TURNING HEADS TUESDAY!

Have a great day!

      Hi Candace! That means a lot, thank you! I do love jewelry and have recently got more into larger metal bracelets. I saw this dress on Loft last year, and had to have it for the color! Enjoy your weekend. xx

    Very pretty dress and the necklace is beautiful. I love the emerald color on you, must have something to do with your lovely red hair. I married a red head, but neither of our daughters, nor our grandson ended up with any red. Someday, maybe. My oldest daughter loves a statement necklace. I usually go for a longer look, but I am delving into the statement pieces as well. Just need to find one that grabs my attention and my credit card. Ha, ha. Thanks for posting. – Amy

      Thanks so much Jodie! I do like the ease of a maxi dress, I just bought another one on sale at HM. Ah! I’ll take that as long as I could be sent on location 🙂 Enjoy your day my friend! xx

    What a lovely colors! Just perfect to wear with a one color dress. I like it when maxi dresses are not to long, because when they touch the ground they get dirty and I hate that. Ofcourse it depends on how tall you are.
