The Look for Less!

August 22, 2014

TGIF dolls!

So happy it's Friday! :) Today I wanted to show y'all a "look for less" featuring some of my new favorite jewelry from Purple Peridot! As a 20-something single working girl & nursing student, I have to admit that I don't have some insane budget for clothes, jewelry, etc. I do love investing in some nicer classic pieces (a good pair of riding boots, a great leather handbag, the perfect pair of jeans, etc)...however, I like to change my clothes too often to invest huge amounts of money in my clothes/accessories (which is why you see a lot of TJ Maxx & Forever 21 outfits on here!). So when I started seeing the gorgeous Kendra Scott Rayne necklace pop up on my Instagram news feed, I knew I wanted one! However I thought I would wait to invest the $80 and see if I could find something a little bit cheaper. Of course I had to look no further than Purple Peridot! They make an ADORABLE version and it is only $16 right now! They also have the cutest colors (I'm eying the hot pink one next). Be sure to check it out HERE. I love this necklace because it is versatile and can be layered with other necklaces. When I ordered the tassel necklace from Purple Peridot, I couldn't help but add THIS adorable bracelet to my shopping cart! It's the perfect addition to an arm party, and at $12.99 you can't beat the price. It's really similar to Stella & Dot's Amelie Sparkle Bracelet HERE that sells for $39. I'm sure y'all will be seeing a lot of this necklace/bracelet combination on the blog! Here's how I styled it for my OOTD.....
