I’m doing a little bit of a throwback post today, because this one totally got lost in iPhoto after I uploaded the pictures… never to be seen again. Until today, obviously. It is from right at the start of fall, which honestly didn’t seem that long ago until I saw these pictures and realized how super short my hair was! I feel like it has grown a billion inches (okay maybe not quite that many, but I wish) since these photos! I guess it has been like, four or five months, so there’s that. Anyway, this is basically the outfit I wore a billion times this fall because it was so comfy but still the teeniest bit dressed up (only thanks to slightly heeled boots and a gorgeous Stella & Dot necklace, haha).
I have to share a close up of this necklace because daaang. I suck at wearing statement necklaces. I have a small frame so I feel like all the gorgeous big bling ones I see on Instagram and other blogs just look giant and clunky on me. I wish I could wear them! I have bought plenty and they just never look right. This Stella & Dot Eye Candy necklace is a totally different story, though. It’s a bold enough color and JUST big enough to be a noticeable, statement-worthy piece, but I don’t feel totally out of place wearing it. I love it!
My dad, who has never cared about or said anything about clothes EVER (minus his rants on how he doesn’t like red dresses- doesn’t that go against actual scientific evidence that says red is the most attractive color? Hahah!), even said he liked my necklace. I was legitimately surprised! Thanks dad, and good work Stella & Dot for creating something so beautiful my dad even loves it. Also, all the praise goes to my Stella & Dot independent stylist friend, Laurie, who so perfectly chose this necklace for me after I told her my feels on statement necklaces. She did such an excellent job!
