Sorry about not posting an outfit for the last few days! My wardrobe is feeling kinda dry, I need to go shopping sometime soon and find some fun new pieces to mix it up! Although I can't right now, as I am grounded :( oh how teen issues suck. Anyways, my friend asked me to do a post on accessories, so here it goes:

I've been doing a little, ok a lot, of online window shopping and found some really cool stuff that I think is perfect for spring. In my mind at least, there are two huge trends going on right now. The first is the tough, industrial, rocker look thats been really huge this winter. We're all too familiar with it, shredded jeans, leather, and studs. The second one, which I am favoring a bit for spring, is the hippie look. It has that easy going/laid back/carefree aura that is spring. Layers of prints, chic clogs, and messy hair, (along some peace love and happiness) are what this look is all about.

These two really different looks actually have one thing in common: amazingly perfect statement necklaces that complete any look.

Ranjana Khan fantasy bib necklace
$290 Saks

 Circa 78 wildflower necklace
$38- UO

The above necklaces speak for themselves. ummmm love??? a lot. I wanted to give a splurge/save example, they are pretty similar, except for the price tag!

            Space Oddity Necklace
             $495- Assad Mounser

                 fiona paxton mesh 
                chain bib necklace               
                     $200- Saks                          

The space oddity Necklace? AMAZING. Not to mention it embodies both trends. 
with chains and spikes, but also with those purple mineral pieces and the agate stone that beautifully contrast with the hard industrial feeling of the chains. I adore the fiona paxton necklace also, it reminds me of a dream catcher.

       Fringe Trim Necklace
         $12.80- Forever21

          NC bis Necklace                                          
             $130- shopbop                               

These two would add edge to any outfit. I would even go as far as saying that they are a must have. Add something like one of these to a simple ensemble and it instantly makes it more interesting with out over doing it.

Now, for people like my friend who are wondering how to wear these, no fear! Its really easy! Keep the rest of your outfit simple, especially the other accessories. All you need is a ring or two along with one of these beauties, and your good to go. An open neckline works best to accentuate the necklace, but a higher neck, like a t-shirt works too. I just noticed that my last two outfit posts also included kinda big necklaces, so look there for inspiration. 

Forever Fashionable,

PS- Tomorrow I am going to costume design bright and early, basically where we make the costumes for the school play. Its really fun and I think I might take some pics and post them later tomorrow.
