Fashionista Spotlight

The thing about statement jewelry is that it scares people. It is bold and gutsy. However, you can’t deny the fact that if worn right, it can be that extra touch you need to feel great about what you are wearing. The ensemble put together by this Fashionista is simple – high-waisted denim shorts from Urban Outfitters, a plain yellow shirt from Zara and casual sandals from Charming Charlies. What makes her stand out is her beaded collared necklace.
