Charming Lucy - Guest Post

Today, my friend Susan from Charming Lucy is guest posting. I found her blog a few months ago and we connected instantly. Check out her post on how to style a statement necklace and read on to find out how you can win one of your own!

My name is Susan and I blog over at Charming Lucy. Amy created one of my favorite fashion blogs. Her style is chic and modern, but very approachable and easy to replicate. I also love that she adds links to her clothing pieces and accessories, so they are always super easy to find. Today I created a post to offer you a few ideas on styling a statement necklace. Statement necklaces are so versatile and they add a cool pop of color to almost any outfit. What did we ever do without them?! You can wear a statement necklace to a casual event paired with shorts and flats, or you can dress it up for a summer wedding. Since I don't have the opportunity to dress up often, I typically wear my statement pieces with shorts and a summer top. I think other accessories, including handbags, should be kept to a minimal when wearing a statement necklace, so the accessories do not overpower the outfit. This is one of my favorite statement necklaces from the Etsy shop ShopNestled. My friend Megan designs and creates all of the original pieces in this Etsy shop. Check it out!



This is another of my favorites which I received from Stitch Fix this summer!




I am sponsoring a giveaway so you can begin to build your own wardrobe of statement necklaces. I am offering one of my favorite statement necklaces of the season - the bubble necklace - to one lucky winner.
