Statement Jewellery

I’m totally loving all of the statement jewellery that’s around at the moment. There are some really striking pieces available for anyone whether they are on a tight budget or have a bit more cash to spend!

Forever 21 has some fabulous necklaces at the moment – these are just a pick of some of my favourites! (You can check out their full range here http://www.forever21.com/UK/Product/Category.aspx?br=f21&category=acc )

One particular statement piece I’m really into at the moment are Peter Pan Collars. They seem to have the power to make every outfit simultaneously glamorous and cute. I like to think of them as a way of being like the Lost Boys and never growing up -they just look fun, cute and quirky!

I really like the idea of the detachable collars so that you can wear them with any outfit and I’ve seen a lot of posts online about how to make your own Peter Pan Collar (but I’ve not tried it yet). I’ve put some images below to show you all how varied they can be…

This next one is one I’ve found on Etsy – and I’m disappointed that its in the USA as I really love it! https://www.etsy.com/listing/95699908/layered-peter-pan-collar-necklace-gold?ref=related-2

So will any of you choose to make a statement this spring? Has anyone gone all DIY and made their own? I’d love to hear about your thoughts on statement jewellery and see any pictures of your favourite pieces.

As always, thanks for reading, C xx

Access(ories) All Areas!

So a few days ago I wore an outfit to work which I have worn more times than I care to count and suddenly everyone was complimenting me on it!

Weird right?

Well I was pondering over it when walking out of the office and I realised the only thing that was different was my accessories, well only my necklace really – but somehow this one necklace changed my whole outfit and made people notice it!

Now the necklace I was wearing wasn’t expensive in fact it was from New Look and cost less than £10! This is me wearing said necklace…

So I guess I kind of new already that accessories are an important part to any outfit, I just didn’t realise how much of a difference they can make! I’ve put a few more snaps below of my favourite accessories – everything from my notepad and pen to my lovely River Island leather gloves! (Excuse the quality of the pictures – my photography is not the best but I’m working on it!)
