Subtle Statements

If you follow along on Instagram (@coffeewithkylie) you know that the first week in October I was in a beautiful farm wedding in a small town in Iowa. Now the bride just so happens to be a creative mind like myself, and boy did she hook us up in the bridesmaid department. We wore dark grey dresses and silver accessories, including our own choice of a statement necklace! The wedding was BEAUTIFUL (recap to come) and so was the love and friendship at that. But I’ll stop there and save the sappiness for later, because this post is about my wedding necklace and shoes!

I felt so pretty and sparkly that night, that it only took me a week to restyle these accessories. I took them from elegant fall wedding, to Florida casual, and can’t wait to wear them again and again! See, it’s all about versatility, y’all. I know I’m not the only one that’s pinching pennies… So when you need/want to do a little style shopping, you also want to get the biggest bang for your buck. Buy things that can be dressed up or down, worn in multiple seasons, on multiple occasions. You’ll feel much better about the purchase (trust me) and in the long run it’ll be much gentler on your wallet.

I mean, can you imagine all the ways I can wear these two pieces? The possibilities are seriously endless. Shout out to the bride for hooking us up, and giving me an excuse to add to my wardrobe!

Just call me the budget-conscious fashion fanatic.

    The necklace is gorgeous- I love it. Someday when my children are finished using me as a jungle gym, I WILL regain my statement pieces!
