How to Wear A Statement Necklace

Today I thought I would show you how to wear a statement necklace.  A statement necklace is the must have accessory to brighten up any boring outfit.  In my opinion the right statement necklace is your best friend for life.  You don't have to limit yourself to wearing one with just a dress because as you can see below, there are plenty more ways for you to style this versatile piece of jewellery.  

I know for some people it can be a little daunting wearing such a big piece of jewellery that screams 'look at me', 'look at me'.  Yes, it's a bold accessory.  I mean, why else would it be called a statement necklace?  But to be honest with you, it all depends on the whole look.  Get it right and you'll feel as comfortable as ever and you'll look great too.  You can even wear them everyday without looking like you're going for a night out!

The great thing about the statement necklace is that it can turn a plain outfit into an amazing one and sometimes it might be the only accessory you need to bring back a dress to life.

The 4 looks I have styled are based around one key piece, a CHAMBRAY SHIRT, a JUMPER, a WHITE T-SHIRT and a DRESS.  So, let me show you how to wear a statement necklace.

My Dream Office

If you follow me on Pinterest, you'll see that I've made a board with some pictures of gorgeous looking work spaces.  I'm totally in love with them all and I'm always dreaming about having my own little space to work in.  It would be amazing to step into my very own office, close the door and just drift away into my work.

Here's an office that is my favourite space........for now.  I say for now, because I'm always changing my mind!  I know when I'm scrolling through Pinterest I'm going to find another one, and then another, and then another one, and........ It's never ending isn't it?  I never get bored of Pinterest! or should I say, I never get BOARD of Pinterest!  See what I did there?!

Anyways, let's get back to this dreamy office I want to show you.

New Gifts In My Store

Lately, I've been working some overtime at Love Hijab HQ as I've been busy sourcing new products to add to my store.  I've always said I wanted it to be different to all the other scarf places online and so I decided to add a few gifty items too.  Along with the usual scarves and statement necklaces I thought a few quirky pieces selected by me, myself and I (the perks of working for yourself!) would be a great addition to Love Hijab in 2015.

I shall leave the links below each item if you wish to head on over to Love Hijab and buy a gift or two for a friend or you.

So here's what's new! Enjoy xx

(Oooh I didn't realise it all rhymed until I read it all again!)

Sold Out? Don't worry! Follow my secret tips and get what you want!

So how many times have you wanted something and it's sold out?  I can tell you it's happened to me plenty of times.  Usually it's during the big old sales.  I've had my eye on something and before you know it, it's gone.  If you're anything like me, in the sense that if you see something you like, then you have to have it no matter what.  And you'll go to great lengths to see if you can find it anywhere else, then this post is just your cup of tea.

How To Design A Pinterest Friendly Image & Pin Your Blog Post

I've been using Pinterest for a while now and absolutely love it!  If you've been reading my blog you'll know exactly how much, because you'll have read about it here.  I love to just pin everything, there's so much on there and I'm sure you will agree with me on that one too!

Just recently I've been pinning my own images.  I've never done this before but since I've started blogging I thought I would make use of this social platform to try and drive more traffic to my blog posts.

Taking a little break

Just in case you're wondering where I've gone, I thought I'd let you know that I'm taking a little break from blogging for a while.  If you've been reading my blog then you'll know that I've been blogging everyday for a month.  Yes that's right. One.  Whole.  Month!

The Dress Over Pants Look

One of the latest trends for this season is the Dress-Over-Pants look.  You may have noticed a lot of girls wearing this look for a long time.  As a Muslim, we are required to cover up so this is one look that many Muslim women wear everyday anyways.  But recently the runways have been filled with this 70's look and you may have even spotted Sarah Jessica Parker showing off this trend too.
