As an interior designer, I adore putting the finishing touches on a project, which means placing just the right accessories in the room. The same goes for when I complete an outfit and I reach for jewelry to add that last bit of personalized style. A few years ago, I was on the hunt for a special initial necklace that was simple, yet had a wonderful quality to it. When I found Efy Tal Jewelry, I did a review post on the necklace that I got off my Christmas list from them.
With my birthday right around the corner, I wanted to do something special to celebrate it on the blog by doing a giveaway. My first thought was to do have a piece that was deeply personal and my mind immediately went back to Efy Tal. When I contacted Efy, she was gracious enough to gift a personalized initial necklace just like mine to one lucky reader. Although my birthstone is a diamond, I selected to have a turquoise stone with my necklace since it has a special significance to me.
Although I have worn it several times on the blog, I wanted to show it one more way I wore it recently. I love to pair it with pieces that call for a more minimal look and that is exactly what this bold Aztec vest called for. In fact, I have had all of these pieces for quite a while in my closet and have wanted to pair them together this way for a long time. The colors seem to be a little more fall than spring, but that is not stopping me from sporting it.
This entire outfit kind of has an upscale safari feel with the pockets on the structured vest to the thick suede skirt. I love the exotic vibe it gives. Perhaps it is my age (I am turning 41 this year), but I am feeling more and more comfortable in my own skin lately. I feel an ease and flow to when I am putting outfits together. Another big thing that has been seen more and more on the blog has been me changing up my hair styles. I used to always fix my hair the same way every single day. Now, I am looking forward to styling it differently according to my outfit or mood.
This initial necklace adds that personal stamp on this outfit and it is close to my heart. It is like Carrie Bradshaw’s “Carrie” necklace on Sex and the City. The way it goes with practically anything I own is wonderful too and I have some pretty crazy printed pieces, so that is great. So now it is your turn.
