Making a Statement

First things first — hello! I’m totally ashamed of my sporadic blogging over the past few months. Between time spent with my lovely man and puppy, a new promotion and some changes at work, building up my photography site and branding/brainstorming business planning and all of the other great things that have been going on lately I’ve been letting this little blog fall behind. So I’m bringing it back with a bang today with my first outfit post in a loooooong time.

When it comes to fashion, I definitely jump aboard and participate in the latest trends. I was obsessed with mint and am still in love with peplum tops, and after seeing those gorgeous J. Crew inspired bubble necklaces on every blog I came across over the summer, I just had to have one for myself. But for some reason I just kept putting it off and never ending up getting one. Needless to say I was thrilled when Cathryn of Cathryn Ann Designs contacted me about doing a little collaboration on the blog. She sent me over this bubble necklace and I was totally giddy with excitement when I got it! I honestly had a hard time picking out a piece because everything in her shop is so adorable. It’s full of so many fun, colorful statement necklaces and bracelets – check out her shop here.

The thing I love most about this necklace is that it makes a statement and is the perfect outfit completer. For those of you familiar with Molly’s blog, this necklace is totally my “completer jacket” (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, read her post here). It’s the perfect piece to give any outfit the extra pop it needs.

    I think I may finally breakdown and by a bubble necklace! I love the way they make an outfit just pop! On the same lines, a necklace or a scarf is usually my favorite way to make a statement on a day-to-day basis.

      Take it from me – you need to invest in one of these! I am depressed I held off on getting one for so long. This is the first thing I grab when I need an outfit completer. I’m a huge fan of scarves too!

    You seriously look like a model in that first shot–so pretty! I have an emerald green bubble necklace that I break out from time to time…you’re right, the totally “pop” an outfit. Glad you’re back, Steph! xo

    I’m not a big bubble necklace girl, but you rock it so well! That top is very flattering I love the way it’s a bit flowly at the bottom! So glad to see you posting more often, I’ve missed your blog!

      I sure have! Although I always feel that way which I guess I can only blame myself for 🙂 Photography, a 9-5 job, blogging and maintaining a personal life can be a lot to handle. But I love it all too much so I try my best to make it work. Thanks Maya!

      Thank you fellow Stephanie 🙂 I have been quite busy, honestly I’ve felt that way since the addition of a puppy to our household, but I love all of the excitement that brings. I finally feel like I’m figuring out how to disperse my time between everything properly, even if it means getting up a little early sometimes!
