I love a good statement necklace, but boy can they be intimidating. Today, I'll be showing you a simple way to transition them from casual to classy with a simple change of your shoes.
Below you will see my casual outfit.
Point blank, you just can't go wrong with black on black. Its effortless and chic with minimal effort involved. This is my absolute must-have tee currently, I have it in white as well. Due to my long legs, most jeans tend to be an inch or two too short. Thankfully, the single cuff works well. I chose to pair the necklace with my neon pink Vans. The just brought out the neon pink in the necklace so beautifully. Would you believe that I got these Vans for $8 at Goodwill, never worn?! I love a good bargain. I grew up in a military family with four of us kids. Being that money was tight, we each became professional thrift store shoppers at a very early age. I added my white and pink Lokai bracelets for an added touch. They carry so much meaning to me, and quite frankly, they're just really fun. Add my go-to fold over black cross-body purse, which has complimentary silver accents, and boom. Set for the day.
Next lets talk about an easy way to dress this outfit up.
I really want to emphasize how easy it is to transition this outfit from comfy casual, to cute and classy. Its as simple as changing your shoes. I chose to eliminate my Lokai bracelets (and my fitbit flex). I then added a reversible silver-sparkle reversible bracelet, for some extra shine. Being that we are towards the end of winter and warmer temperatures are just around the corner, I chose a pair of black, perforated chunky heels. They're so easy to walk in and beyond lightweight. Sadly, they are old and no longer available. But I've linked some equally cute similar styles below. Just like that, you've gone from casual and sporty and effortless ensemble. Whether it is a night out with girls, date night, or a simply because you wanted to feel fabulous. You'll be sure to make a statement! Hold your head high and own it girl.
