*Sorry the quality of these pictures is basically crap. Josh was taking them while holding a baby...at 9pm. It was a trip. I settled on these and decided they were going to have to work.

Over the past year or so I have started investing in quality accessories. There is something really nice about walking into Forever21 and walking away with a new necklace for five dollars, but there is something even nicer about having three or four well-made necklaces that work with everything. Since I recently had a birthday (25! Woot!), I spent some time at one of my favorite shops, Francesca's Collections, and picked out a few gems. I ended up going with a funky, colorful, beaded necklace that I can wear with solids, or "like" colors. Let me tell you something-I have already worn that necklace with so many outfits (here and here)! My other choice was a gold and white geometric "collar" necklace that literally goes with everything (I am actually wearing it right now!). Overall, I feel really great about these quality and fashionable purchases. Not only were they a great birthday gift (i.e. I used a gift certificate), but they are now an essential part of my wardrobe.
Here are few more that I have my eye on:
Here's how I would wear them:
|Necklace | Top | Colored Jeans | Chunky Wedges|
|Necklace | Dress | Tights | Heels|
|Necklace | Dress | Cardigan | Flats|
|Necklace + Top + Skinnies + Cowboy Boots|
