Statement Jewelry from @Cherrylovesjewelry on Instagram

I’m somewhat of a statement jewelry addict and if you go in my vanity you’re probably going to class me as a stage 1 hoarder. But I’m a firm believer in how a great piece of statement jewelry can literally dress anything up and make yourself look instantly put together. Throw on a simple tee from Forever21 (like the mint polka dot version below) or bring your outfit to the next level for added glamour. I found @cherrylovesjewelry on Instagram and fell in love with the pieces she offers. I have always spent full price on the JCrew version and it’s definitely broke me on a few occasions. I never really had good luck with the lower cost knockoffs. They would tarnish or stones would fall out. It just felt like the old adage “you get what you paid for” was true. So I was super excited when I finally found someone that was selling almost identical pieces of JCrew and Stella Dot for super affordable prices and the quality was near flawless. I’m happy I found a way to continue my love of statement jewelry in a more affordable way and put my money to good use, like shoes and handbags 🙂

The Home Tee

As a true Southern girl, I’ve never wanted to express my Texas pride more then I have in the last 16 years living in New York and other states. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve gotten to sample some of the other parts of the country and life is about living and trying new things. BUT there is no place like home! I love, love, love this tee. It is super soft cotten, unisex sizing, so I recommend sizing down; or if you’re in-between sizes, getting the smaller of the two. I wear it with a JCrew cardi when it’s cold (when is it not cold in NY?) and a statement necklace. My photo was featured on The Home T instagram page for my southern pride. Whether you’re from Texas or Alaska this is a cute way to show your state pride!
