Spring Trend: Fun Statement Necklaces

My April Little Black Bag!
Trend I'm recently LOVING?  The statement necklace.  I've never really been 'in' to necklaces.  I think this is partly due to my laziness and lack of effort in looking like a beeYOOOOOtiful princess 24/7, and also due to the fact that I've always found necklaces to be kind of annoying and in-the-way all the time. This was, until I discovered the beauty of short dainty necklaces.  A couple months ago I ordered a BUNCH of smaller dainty necklaces from Forever21, and I haven't been able to stop wearing them.  Now that the weather is getting warmer -- and I'm getting braver with the way I adorn by neck-space -- I've started to become QUITE intrigued by the statement necklace.

I was OVER THE MOON when Little Black Bag released a slew of gorgeous statement necklaces this week!  What better way to experiment with this trend then to trade without having to invest any serious cash??  Needless to say, I traded my butt off and got some supes cute pieces!  I've been pining for a stone statement necklace for a while, so I'm excited to wear this pink All The Rage one this Spring!  I'm just hoping the one I get doesn't have a run-away stone (see far right).

I've been seeing cute triangle statement necklaces EVERYWHERE, and have been so obviously wanting one.  I love how this one has a cute black & white print!  Very on-trend for Spring 2013!

It was love at first sight when I saw this scalloped necklace.  Look at her!  I am pretty excited to dress this up with a cute dress, or down with a plain white tee!

Unlike the others, this chain necklace is a longer statement piece.  I was pretty unsure of it at first because I tend to find longer necklaces annoying (visualize bending down and banging it on EVER-FRICKIN-THING IN SIGHT), but I couldn't help but fall more and more in love with the pretty multi-coloured stones!  I'm planning on pairing this with a DIY white muscle tee and some denim skinnies or shorts....mmmmm.

The last necklace isn't exactly a statement piece, but I couldn't help but include it because I am still going through my dainty-necklace-obsession.  The evil eye, however, is definitely a bold statement.  I say this because it is such a conversation starter.  Everyone has a bit of an opinion about the evil eye.  I liked the last Spring Street Evil Eye Necklace that LBB released a few months ago, but to be quite honest the literal eye shape of it irked me a bit.  When I saw this one I had to have it because it's not  quite your typical evil eye.  I mean, is it an eye?  Or a boob?  Am I right?  Hehe...

Anywhoots,

Happy Hump Day All!

  3. Hey dear!
    Thank you so much for your positive words on my blog, they just made my day :) I did the banner myself with the help of photoscape. Also you should definitely get some white pants as they are so hot this season and your ideas of combining sound really cool!
    Oh and for the necklaces you chose here I really like the multi chain one ;)
