Neutral Shift


Typically, when buying clothes, I try to think about the versatility of the piece I'm considering.  If I can't come up with 3 different ways to style it (with items I already own), then it usually doesn't come home with me.  But, it never occured to me to apply the same philosophy to my jewelry...until I was sent this chunky gold chain necklace from Christina M Boutique.  I love that I can wear it 3 different ways ~ single-strand, double-strand, or wrapped around as a bracelet. 

Christina M Boutique has dozens of amazing pieces in her shop that I know you will love & are incredibly versatile - you can stack them up or keep it simple, as I did here.  And now is the perfect time to check her out, because she's graciously offered an exclusive discount for my readers.  Just enter code PPFGirl at checkout to get 15% off your purchase (valid thru 3/10)!





What I'm wearing:
H&M dress, Nina booties, Christina M Boutique necklace c/o, Bracelets: Vintage & Banana Republic/DIY, ASOS clutch (on sale here), Target sunnies (similar), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry, Nails: Essie Tart Deco

I have the same rule when it comes to clothes! Good point to think about getting just as much use from jewelry, too. And that is one very cute chain!

Haley said...

I have a random question for you!?!! Are your wedding/engagement rings yellow gold?? I have a tiffany style round solitaire and a band that has 7 small diamonds on them (prong set), and mine are yellow gold! I feel like people always ask me if I wanted yellow gold...and I say yes! I'm such a traditional girl and plus most of my other jewelry is yellow gold. Just wondering if yours is as well!! :) Love reading your blog!

Kimberly said...

Haley - yes, my wedding ring is yellow gold! I wear gold jewelry more often and it looks better on my skin tone - I know we are in the minority, but sometimes you have to go with what works for you!! :)
