I’ve only really got into lipstick in the last year or so. I didn’t think it suited me and just felt a bit too standout when I wore it. I have since grown to love it over the last year and my collection has gone from zero to way too many faster than you can say pout. I am also a massive fan of a bold statement necklace and am continuously on the look out for new gorgeous detailed and chunky necklaces to snap up.
I stick to mostly different shades of pinks but lately have got more into reds and darker berry lips throughout the winter. It finishes a look and now I don’t really go without it too often. Its brilliant for dressing up a fairly casual outfit, as is a statement necklace which I also tend to wear a fair bit.
I wanted an overall casual outfit but it was just a little bit too plain so I added this heart pendant chunky necklace to add that extra something to it. I didn’t really wear any other jewellery as when I have a detailed item on I don’t like to overload on accessories and ruin the outfit. I just wore my Michael Kors watch and nothing else as I had gold studs on my shoes which I felt was enough. I threw my hair up in a messy top-knot so I could show the necklace off without hair as a distraction.
I only wear gold jewellery and annoyingly I see so many gorgeous detailed necklaces that I lust after but to my disappointment they are only available in silver. I love wearing them over a chunky knit like I am in this post, I just love the whole casual/glam balance that a chunky necklace can add to an outfit. I also quite like wearing them with a plain boyfriend tee throughout the summer and under the collar of a plain shirt to give it a twist.
I picked up a cute chunky gold link necklace from H&M at the weekend which I can’t wait to wear. I also had another two in my hand but had to put them back as I’d already bought so much! Naughty naughty I know, I was supposed to be just returning some items and came back with way more than anticipated, oops. On the plus side though I have some absolute gems that I am excited to photograph and get on here for you all to see. Every cloud….
