Happy Monday! These next few weeks ahead are going to be busy busy! I will be heading out this Thursday for a wedding in Ohio and again the following weekend for a wedding in Iowa. The weather here has been so odd lately, warm one day, cold and rainy the next. I take full advantage of the weather when it’s gorgeous outside. Recently, the Happiness Boutique contacted me about featuring a piece of jewelry. After seeing my blog, you know I love my jewels. I wanted to pick a piece that was a bit out of the norm for me, so I went with this layered art deco necklace. The site is awesome and they have some really affordable and fashionable jewelry to choose from! Their shipping is free and super quick (I hate waiting for packages)! I am also loving this necklace and I am sure it is going to be a new purchase. Make sure to check out their site, and if you buy anything, sign up for their rewards program!
I wanted to really highlight the necklace, so I paired this recently purchased maxi with it. I liked how the necklace would just take up the space from the lower front detail on the dress. I thought I would share a few thoughts on this dress in regards to length and sizing. So, I am typically a large in pretty much everything I wear, unless it tends to run loose or big. I sized down (wearing a M) in this and I am happy I did. I ordered this dress online in both sizes (I tend to do this a LOT) and found the sizing to be quite different. The large overall had no shape and the most amazing part, the hem at the bottom was almost 3 inches longer! For height reference, I am 5’3″ and wearing 3 inch heels. The reason I kept this dress is because it has adjustable shoulders on it, so I was able to take the front up, and I find that it also took the dress inseam up a bit as well. I have a constant battle with maxi dresses, especially with regards to the length and the cut on the front. That is why it sits a bit higher on my chest, as compared to the model on the site. Should you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
