How often do you go out and buy jewelry for yourself? Honestly.
I'm one of those people that never indulges in things for myself. If I've got a $5 bill in my pocket, its probably going into the Christmas money jar (which, we need to get crackin' on that!), or going towards a new winter hat for my 2 year old son (ok, better get crackin' on that too). Are ya with me? Maybe you too?
I've mentioned once or twice before, how I own very little jewelry. My style changed drastically since having kids, and I've just never really taken the time to rebuild my accessory box. Because on most given days, I'm wearing sweats and decorating my shoulders with burp cloths, so...
I'm slowly finding things that I like, though. Here and there, little things stand out to me, and- on the rare occasion that I leave the house, I'll dabble blush on my cheeks and string something up around my neck.
The ball chain feels light around my neck, and looks more elegant than the other ball chains in my jewelry box. I like feeling elegant.
I liked butterflies when I was 16, and I like them now.
The chain is a little hard to clasp, which gives me confidence that its going to be more difficult for the chain to come undone. Thats a good thing. I hate it when necklaces fall off and are lost forever.
I got those in the mail a week or two ago, and they've become my new favorites. And they look good paired with sweats.
Oh, and guess what? I've got one of each, for you too!
