One of my new favourite necklaces at the moment is this super sparkly crystal wreath choker necklace! Initially it might seem like quite a fancy piece that needs to be worn with an evening dress or ball gown, but I actually really like dressing it down with a t-shirt or jumper for a more casual look. Or just add it to any simple little dress, like this floral number for some added oomph to your look. It’s so elegant and fun for day or night.

I love a statement necklace but sometimes a delicate piece is just as gorgeous! I love my new silver bar necklace with a slight curve by Maison Miru. A necklace like this can really be worn with any outfit, for any occasion.

I love it when wearing a shirt like this or something with a lower neckline. A bar necklace looks great on its own but also looks fab when layered with other longer and/or shorter delicate necklaces. Do you like this kind of simple but elegant necklace?
When it comes to accessories I think ZARA does some of the best on the high street. I always find myself tempted and distracted by the statement necklaces, earrings and many gorgeous scarves that they (cleverly) have on display near the counter. I recently did a quick grab & buy with these stunning yellow statement earrings – I mean how could I resist?
I paired my ZARA yellow and white long drop earrings with a simple white dress shirt, blue distressed jeans and another pop of yellow with my favourite neon yellow heels (also from ZARA – last season).
Are you as much of a lover of the ZARA accessories section as I am? Currently I am lusting after these gorgeous pieces: link, link and link. Oh oh! ;)
About three years ago I was introduced by a friend of mine to bohemian costume jewellery designer Samantha Wills and I have been pretty much obsessed with her collections ever since. So when my best friend’s birthday (who introduced me to the brand) was coming up I thought; something from Samantha Wills would be just perfect. After browsing the website I fell in love with these gorgeous ‘All for you’ Grande Earrings (link).
I have to admit that once they arrived it became extremely hard to part with them because I love them so much myself haha. I really hope she loves them but I might have to get a pair for myself now too ;)
Samantha Will’s success has been called “Australia’s biggest export since Vegemite” How it all started; “One school holiday, Mum took me to beading classes at the local craft shop in Port Macquarie, where I grew up. That’s where I learnt the basics. I was 11 years old,” Sam says.
She made friendship bracelets for her school friends and swore to her teachers she’d make a living out of surf-style sterling silver necklaces – which isn’t far from true. When she was 20 she moved to Sydney and opened a stall at the Bondi markets, held every Sunday. A friend then offered her a miniscule stand at Australian Fashion Week, where she logged $17,000 worth of orders, and that was it – by 21 years old, Sam had launched her first collection.
Not only do I love her jewellery but I also follow her on Instagram (link) and adore seeing everything about her fabulous and stylish life in NYC! Here are some other Samantha Wills pieces I’m currently lusting after.
