Wear a Bib

I love a great statement necklace.

It’s amazing how one great piece can totally make an outfit.

Right now, the statement this one is making is, “Get ready to see a lot of me.” Cuz I have a feeling this bib necklace is going to be in regular rotation with many an ensemble this coming season.

necklace – Stella & Dot, shirt – Charlotte Russe, jeans – JCrew, shoes – Cents of Style
