One of my favorite ways to jazz up a basic outfit is with a statement necklace. Solid tee? Regular. Solid tee paired with an eye-catching neck piece? Heck yes.
I mean, you can certainly spend beaucoup bucks on an exquisite statement piece…and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, I have found that sometimes with statement necklaces, the styles can change with the seasons. The bubble necklace that was all the rage last season may be on the way out a few short months later. So, if you’re going to go for a trendy style in a statement necklace, sometimes spending lots of cash is not a priority.
Just because you want to make a statement doesn’t mean you need to see a huge dent in your bank account. It almost sounds too good to be true, but I promise you: it’s for real. Every single one of the 20 necklaces I rounded up for you today rings in at $25 or less. Yes – you read that correctly – statement necklaces for an affordable price! Pinch me. I pretty much want to add every single one of these to my collection, but I’m REALLY excited about one of my newest jewelry website finds: Jeweliq. All of the jewelry on their site is $25 or less. Be still, my bargain shopping heart. Make sure you check it out for yourself.
So – which statement necklace would you select from the bunch?
Sometimes, it isn’t all about mixing bright colors in an outfit. Why not do it with neutrals too?
Black, white, brown, and tan can all pair together wonderfully, so I decided to embrace that with an outfit. When I spotted this patterned tank at Target last week, I knew it would be a great addition to my closet. The flowy fabric of the top is keeping me cool in the over 90° weather we are currently experiencing.
And because pants were definitely out of the question (I’m not sure that I’ll be wearing a pair for quite some time), it was time to break out some tuxedo shorts in their place. My jeans have officially been put into retirement for the summer. I might see them again in September or October. Am I the only one out there that can’t stand wearing jeans in hot weather? I just…can’t do it!
Happy Father’s Day – I hope all of you out there are able to spend some time today celebrating the fathers in your lives. It comes as no surprise that the group at Sunday Supper is taking the day to create some dishes in honor of the holiday!
As much as I’d like to whip up some steaks or other “manly” meals for Father’s Day, there is another dish that I thought I’d share with my dad – some stuffed peppers! Even though they’re filled with lean ground turkey breast, beans, and veggies, they are definitely filling.
Have you ever heard of a Dishcrawl before? In a nutshell, consider it a bar crawl, but with food instead! Attendees meet at a particular restaurant location, are treated to a sampling of dishes, and then move on to 3 more locations throughout the evening. It’s a fun event for friends or couples, and a great way to get introduced to different restaurants in a particular area. On Tuesday, Justin and I attended the first Dishcrawl held in Dunedin.
Our Dischcrawl began at The Dunedin Smokehouse, and it kicked the night off on a great note. Our plate arrived featuring a jumbo smoked chicken wing, a slow-smoked St. Louis rib, and a cup of smoked gouda macaroni and cheese. I have to say, I quite enjoyed the rich and creamy mac and cheese, especially with the crunch of the corn, bell pepper, and onion on top.
