When I first found my confidence, everything about what I wore changed. My clothing turned to dresses, my jewellery became statement and bold; my shoes took more of a backseat instead of having to be the only colourful things I wore.
I have been looking back at my old blog posts and came across one that showed all the costume jewellery that I had been wearing recently.
The thing is, your style evolves. Whilst I still love costume jewellery and statement pieces, they no longer fit into my clothing collection. If I were a more fashion forward person, I could probably make them work in interesting ways like I have seen many other bloggers do; but I am not.
I am still a woman that wears dresses 100% of the time, but now, unlike when I started to gain more confidence; every single one of them is patterned. The jewellery that I want now is more simple, something classic that I can wear day or night.
I just want one or two simple pieces that are versatile and I don't mind paying a little extra to get them. After all, if I am wearing one or the other nearly every day, they will pay for themselves (see how I can justify anything?)
So here are some pieces that I have been looking at:
This a bit of a bling piece but as a Michael Kors fan, I cannot resist. If the pendant was larger, it would not work as a day/night piece but with the size, I could definately rock this for business wear or a cocktail at the bar.
Links of London £65
This is the perfect example of what I am looking for. Simple, classic and will work with either a day or night time look. This is definate contender and one I will more than likely purchase.
Mikey £69.30 (on sale from £99)
Again, this is an evening look necklace, but one that I could match with many outfits. It has a vintage feel to it, which I love. Very Downton Abbey.
Folli Follie £75
This is another prime contender. You cannot get much more classic than a heart necklace, but with the double chain and a little bling, I am sold.
So those are my choices. I am thinking numbers 1 and 4 as being the pieces I will probably go for. Both need saving for but perhaps one could be a Christmas present from someone? *Starts writing Christmas list
