Go Bold or Go Home

In graduate school I had a professor who always wore big, bold, modern looking jewelry. She could have easily been one of the women featured on one of my favorite blogs, Advanced Style. She, along with the women featured on the aforementioned website, have some fierce style. I would love to have their sense of style now, let alone when I am in my 70s, 80s and beyond.

Anyway, getting back the the jewelry, I've found lately that costume jewelry is a good way to experiment with my style or add life to an outfit I've worn before and grown tired of, which is where this bold, cobalt blue link necklace from H&M comes in. Sure, it looks like a child's toy, but somehow I just kind of took a liking to it. For what it cost, it will be no huge loss if I only end up wearing it a few times. Today I paired it with a painterly print because the color scheme fits just perfectly and both the print and necklace are equally fun and playful. I already have a few more outfits lined up that I think the necklace would go perfectly with. Who knows, maybe I'll be wearing it when I am 80 years old and featured in Advanced Style?
