Day Birger et Mikkelsen: Day Ipomoea Necklace

Day Birger Necklace

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…

I’ve just noticed the Ipomoea necklace is still available at MyWardrobe it looks nicer in the House of Fraser pics, but not as well reduced!  I’m now trying to resist the matching cuff!

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!
