Make a Statement With A Turquoise Necklace: Wear it 3 different ways! (Fashion on a Budget)

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

I’ve been running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off the last couple weeks. We decided last minute to move into a new place (YAY!), so with that and of course watching two sprouts it’s been busy over here to say the least. I’ve been rocking my “mom uniform” more than I’d like to admit, and not the “pretty” kind either. This week is brand new and I’m ready to kick the fashion police in the bum!

I LOVE “Love Month” for so many reasons, but I wanted to change up my wardrobe this year by sporting my new favorite hue, instead of the usual red and pinks. Turquoise baby!

I wanted to start a new series featuring one piece and three different ways to wear it! I’m starting off this fun series with a Turquoise STATEMENT NECKLACE.
Look #1 The Busy Mom
One Statement Necklace Look #1



Whether you’re running errands, or off on a spontaneous trip to the park (ya know, because you can’t stand it in the house anymore, lol!), putting on a piece like a Statement Necklace can bring you from drab to fab in little time and little effort! I know you’re all thinking, who the heck wears jewelry, let alone a Statement Necklace to the park? I ask you, why not? Up above sure beats my “mom uniform” of Velour jogging pants and a t-shirt/sweatshirt. AND I guarantee I will feel MUCH happier dressing put together than sloppy. Pearls are my go to earrings of choice, but switching it up with fun colorful cabochon earrings will spice up any of my outfits! And for this Momma, a watch is a must, sure beats losing my phone as I race down a park slide with M&M. I usually sport my black flats everywhere I go, but I was looking for more support. Some fashionable “tennis” shoes are Toms! I tried on my cousins, and was so tempted to just walk home with them! My first pair is on it’s way as I type this!

Look #2 Lunch Date
One Statement Necklace Look #2



This look is a bit more dressier, and is something I would use to go on a Lunch Date. I love that I can wear it when my sprouts aren’t with me, and when they ARE with me.With the fun color of the Statement Necklace, I vamped it up more with other coordinating colors. Orange and Turquoise are one of my favs! Trust me! Don’t knock it till you rock it ladies!
Look #3 “HOT Date OUT”


One Statement Necklace Look #3



Yes, I love me a little black dress with this Statement Necklace too, BUT this is more me. Keeping with the all-black look, I went for more edgier date night out accessories to go with the necklace, because let’s face it, the Hubs and I just aren’t fancy black tie only restaurant type goers (no offense, wink wink). I found an easy inexpensive way to add that fun pop of color to your wardrobe. Wait for it… NAIL POLISH!
Hope you all enjoyed this fun series! Looking forward to sharing more! What one piece would you guys like to see in a future feature? Feel free to leave a comment and I’ll try my best to make it work.
