The Statement Necklace: Dressing For Spring Without Freezing

Is It Too Early For Spring? The answer to this question is no, it’s never too early for spring. In fact, I start thinking about spring in, like, August. But okay, maybe I get a LITTLE carried away. Here’s the problem: I could be wishing for warm weather and bright colors in my head, but Mother Nature has a habit of rewarding those thoughts with about two feet of snow.

But I’m not alone, the fashion industry seems to agree that spring is, well, now, which is great for you if you like savings, but I’m having a hard time walking into stores. Doing a little window shopping in Beacon Hill over the weekend, I noticed every store had their spring lines out. This is pretty common, the fashion industry likes to break out the latest trends right as another season begins. The second Christmas trees are taken down, hot pink dresses and sandals come out to play.

It’s hard for me to shop for spring when I’m wearing a super heavy coat, gloves, boots and wool tights, so I have to ask: Are you already doing your spring shopping? I guess it makes sense if you’re going on a vacation somewhere warm, and I am the first person to do a weather dance to drop these temperatures, but it just really seems to feel out of place right now.

However, that’s not to say I’m counting down the days until I can finally shed my legs of these tights. While spring may be on my brain, it’s not time to dress like it. However, no one said nothing about accessorizing.

Behold: My favorite “it’s spring in my head” statement necklaces. Now I can purchase without worrying about freezing.

So that’s going to be my way to usher in spring: Buy a $150 J. Crew necklace (thanks, Christmas gift cards!) Are you starting to add a little spring to your outfits by way of accessories? Or are you like me and rolling your eyes at all the brightly colored displays?
