I have been eyeballing the FRANKIE necklaces from Etsy vendor, NestoftheBluebirds, for a couple of months now and finally pulled the trigger on this one:
And I love it. Really, the only reason it took me so long to order is because it comes in quite a few color combinations and I didn’t know which one to choose. I’m very happy with my choice though; the two neon poms at the ends clenched it for me.
I especially like the scale of it. I like that it has pompoms, not POMPOMS. It’s a good way for me to incorporate a little of the “global chic” trend into my wardrobe in a manner that compliments my style as opposed to overpowering it.
Today I paired the necklace with a simple, cream lace sweatshirt (Macys) and burgundy cords (Banana Republic). This lets the necklace be the star. I also added blue leopard flats (Nine West “Naughty”) because 1) I love burgundy and blue and 2) it picks up the blue from the necklace tying the whole look together.
That’s right, not all of my outfits are happy accidents; sometimes I actually think things through!
Happy Friday, Everyone!
