Making a Statement

date night outfit ideasIf you’ve been reading this blog for a while (and if you’re just tuning in… hello!), then you know how often I pair statement necklaces and earrings with my outfits. I honestly think they make your outfit stand out that much more! However, you also probably know that I’m still in school and always broke (LOL), so it’s hard for me to splurge on these pretty pieces very often. Enter Happiness Boutiqueblack heeled ankle bootieshappiness boutique earringsI stumbled upon the brand a few months back, and was completely amazed by their vast selection of gorgeous necklaces and earrings. What really grabbed my attention, however, is the pricing! Most of the pieces don’t exceed around $20, which is a complete steal in my opinion, and an even bigger bonus is that they offer free shipping! Practically unheard of these days.

There’s also a customer rewards program available on Happiness Boutique, and buyers can earn different rewards by racking up points through purchases, reviews, tagging on Instagram, and several other leather jacketI was super excited when they sent over these pretty stone white earrings (along with another pair you’ll be seeing soon), and I’ve been wearing them non-stop ever since! They’re nice and durable and the quality is amazing… I’ve gotten so many compliments already!cute fall outfit ideasstatement earrings for fallThe earrings are super feminine, so I decided to switch it up for an edgier vibe with my favorite leather jacket and go-to suede black booties! This pretty purple top from Old Navy added the perfect pop of color against the all black ensemble and beige cross body (that I can’t get enough of)!

      Thanks, Julianna! The funny thing is that I thought the top was burgundy, and didn’t realize it was purple until I got home haha!
