I got this necklace awhile ago and have been itching to find an outfit to wear it with, but to be honest I've struggled a little bit! I don't own any bold statement necklaces (at least not like this!) so I was a bit intimated, but for the price (yay for Mimi's! I actually found it through Pinterest, but Mimi's had it cheaper!) knew I had to have it! I decided to keep the rest of my accessories minimal so it wasn't so overpowering! I got a few compliments at work, so hopefully I pulled it off!?
Say to hello to a different part of my apartment! I'm so sick of my little entry way background! The lighting isn't as wonderful here, but I had to switch it up! Fortunately husband will be home soon (YAY!) and I won't have to rely on my tripod pile (one of these days I will take a picture of how I take my own pictures!).
Social work note: I had the realization that I would have been unable to wear this necklace when I worked on the acute psychiatric unit - hello chocking hazard! Not that I was ever in one of those situations during my short 4-5 month internship (thank goodness!) but it would have been against the rules for sure!

After surveying my jewelry I came to the conclusion that I love dainty jewelry, like my small silver locket. I realized that I have NO statement necklaces. Sad right? That might need to change. It's nice to have something different for a change. I just never know what to buy when it comes to those pieces. Any suggestions? My colleague wore this chic black dress today and a great silver and pearl statement necklace. I told her about the challenge and that she has the perfect outfit for today. She loved hearing that :)
I reworked this outfit since the last time I wore it. Wore a red shirt out, added a belt and some leggings. Can you tell it's pretty laid back at our office? So laid back there is no dress code other than no jeans (except for "Jeans Day" once a month). I have had a client in serious crisis the last few days and decided to be comfortable since I have been at my desk taking calls from the hospital, social workers, caregivers, and multiple family members ALLLL day. The client seems somewhat stable now. I'm praying it stays that way through the holiday weekend.
