I bought this Day Birger et Mikkelsen Ipomoea necklace towards the end of the Summer - and although I wore it a few times with maxi dresses and scoop neck tops, I think it will look even better as a Winter accessory with heavier fabrics and chunky knits.
I love dull gold accessories and this beaten-out style with coin-like discs really appealed to me. (The fact that it was reduced to half price in the sale helped too.) It was the first step of my new motto: buy a little of what I love and wear it often.
Even the sale price (£39.99) was more than I’d normally spend on a piece of costume jewellery, which I’m more likely to pick up somewhere like Warehouse or Zara, but I must admit it feels a little more special putting this on and it can really make an outfit.
It’s all in the detail…
Accessories are my other great love and a strong contender for my pennies alongside beauty products. I really enjoy picking up new things at this time of year and am currently obsessively hunting for the perfect tan leather handbag and ankle boots. Autumn/Winter purchases are so much more satisfying as you know you’ll get your money’s worth out of them! Just as well it’s not too long ‘til my birthday and **** (can’t bear to type it)!
I hope you don’t mind if I stumble off topic onto accessories from time to time. You can see some of my favourites in the Style section of my Pinterest page, mostly aspirational of course!
