Fashion Friday: Neutral Uniform + Investment Necklace

I love a good statement necklace. I have a couple that are guaranteed to get me stopped by at least one person per wear to ask where it’s from.  Paired with a more basic “uniform” on black and white (in my case, mostly black) a really good statement necklace can completely MAKE an outfit AND make it easier to get dressed!

I saw this Marni necklace the other day and about died.  It’s SO incredibly me and SO incredibly expensive. I can’t help but think about how many ways I could wear it though.  Granted it’s absurdly overpriced for what it is, but sometimes it’s worth splurging on one amazing piece if you can find many, many ways to wear it (and it makes you deliriously happy).

So I pulled together a slew of affordable neutral looks from chain stores and discount shops with this one statement, investment piece.  When you buy more inexpensive items in black or white they can tend to look more pricey, especially when paired with one high end item (shoes, bag, jewelry, etc.) And when you outfit yourself in lots of basic colors and lines, you can always add in a bold pop of color to mix things up.  Let’s take a peek at what I pulled together all using that one Marni necklace…
