The Proenza Schouler origami skirts from the Fall shows were perfection. This version from Zara is close enough and at a great price ($49!) So comfortable and super flattering on. I was able to snag one in both white and black before they sold out online. When they recently came out with a blue version, I had to stop myself from getting a third. Who needs 3 identical origami skirts really?

Trends from the 90’s (overalls, we’re talking to you!) becoming hip again make me feel nostalgic in the best way possible and ancient in the worst way possible. When I see young 20-something fashionistas wearing these trends, I wonder if it’s a first for them. Whereas, I have flashbacks of walking the hallways with my plaid flannel tied around my waist and backpack slung over one shoulder. Ah the memories!
And before I sign off….my thoughts and prayers are with Boston today.
I saw this picture awhile ago and though we were still in the neverending depths of winter at the time, I was inspired and decided this was how I wanted to look this summer. A playful, floral romper anchored by an incredibly chic and crisp white moto vest.
So, my hunt for a white (faux) leather moto vest began. There aren’t actually a lot out there so it took more time than usual to come up with this list. It was especially challenging to find an affordable option but I finally tracked one down.
Yesterday, a friend (actually a close friend of my sister’s) asked me to recommend a statement necklace. I was flattered she was asking me since she’s so chic herself but almost immediately, I started thinking of the pieces I wanted to show her. I decided to share some of my favorite statement necklaces with you all as well.
I would say, my all time favorite that I’ve been lusting after for awhile are the Fallon Classique pieces. They’re stunning on their own and work beautifully stacked as well. I love how you can wear something very simple and just add a fun necklace to amp up your look.
Here are some of the ways I would style a statement necklace:
– with a Spring/Summer 2013 appropriate origami skirt and plain white t-shirt
– button down shirt buttoned to the top with the necklace under the collar.
– worn in or vintage tee topped with a motorcycle jacket
– with a simple sheath dress for work
– all white look topped with a silk sports jacket
Honestly, I could go on and on. A statement necklace can go over pretty much anything you have on, as long as it’s not too busy already. Do you have a favorite statement necklace? Have you jumped on the stacking necklace bandwagon yet?
Quick tip: If you are planning to stack necklaces, you will need some necklace extenders. If you don’t have the tools at home, you can buy some premade extenders on Amazon.
