Bold Statement Necklace

Hello and happy Tuesday - I'm back for the moment!  I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in NYC with my grandmother and sister (a much needed break), but am going to be on the move again next week.  I have been busy prepping for a two week work trip to Hong Kong and Shanghai to lead systems training for my counterparts in our Asia markets.  I really enjoy these type of projects, but there are tradeoffs.  I work longer hours and have less time for this blog, but the exciting travel opportunities make it worthwhile!  I will post NYC pics soon, as well as post from Asia as often as possible.

Today's outfit focuses on a bold jeweled statement necklace from T+J Designs.  If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen me post a couple of shots of this necklace already.  I love how a bright and pretty statement necklace can really dress up a simple outfit like my striped tank and skirt!  Quite a few pieces, including the particular necklace that I'm wearing, are currently on sale - a great reason to go check out the selection here.  I also love any chance to wear my Chinese Laundry cobalt blue suede pumps, and the fact that they match the necklace is a win-win situation.  =)

A bold statement necklace is a fantastic way to add bright color to a basic outfit like my tank and skirt combo.  You can match colors, like I did here with my pumps and belt, or choose a contrasting color to really make your necklace stand out.  Check out my save and splurge picks on statement necklaces below that are perfect for summer:
