Make a statement


As my style is continually evolving I have found that Im really bad at accessorising, I do wear earrings but thats all. :) I have admired statement necklaces for a while now and finally took the plunge, my first ever statement necklace! :)


I think the necklace fits my style perfectly, balancing the outfit, making my tops/cardigan combos appear just as interesting as my bottoms, hopefully not leading to a conflict of interests. :P I will definitely buy more necklaces,  I might be bitten by the statement necklace bug to be honest. :)


Isnt this skirt the cutest? Its another one from Boden, I bought it back in 2010, I think Boden were ahead of themselves as bird prints are huge these days. :) Heh imagine that, Boden a trendsetter. ;)


What Im wearing:

Cardigan from Mango
Top from HM
Statement necklace from New Look (recent)
Skirt from Boden
Tights from HM
Shoes from Din Sko

As usual on a wednesday Im joining the link up party at:

  1. You look so cute in this. I actually had that skirt for a while, and sold it about a year ago. :) I just couldn't make it work for me, but I love the way you styled this!

    The necklace is adorable, btw!

    1. Aaw thanks Dina! :) A pity you had to sell the skirt but there is no point hanging on to clothes that dont work for you.

    1. Well Curtise, thats why I chose the statement title, double meaning. ;) I love to play with words but its not easy in English. :P But I try nevertheless.. I guess you are right about my signature style. :)

  5. Really cute skirt! I keep coming across a boden dress in my thrift store. I'm always so excited to see it, but it's much too large for me. Hopefully it will make someone else happy.

  9. Hi Monica, I just saw you on Ariane's blog. I love your outfits, full of colour and unique styling. I make beaded jewelry so styling with bracelets and necklaces is fun for me. I keep my fun bling out where I can see it. Helps me to remember to put it on.
