(Not So) Heavy Metals

Recently, my Dad took me out to dinner at this restaurant in the East Village called Dirt Candy (or as my Mom called it, “Dirty Candy”). Let me just tell you – the place is apparently impossible to get reservations at & only seats about fifteen people… and the food is AMAZING. Like, holy crap. Don’t ask questions, don’t think about it, just get yourself a reservation and go!

Anyway, I decided to try something a little bit outside of my regular style that day. I don’t usually go for the plain or geometric metals when I pick out my jewelry, but I tried out Chloe + Isabel’s S-Chain Link Collar Necklace with black skinny jeans and the Shenandoah Tunic from Free People.

I’m glad I went on a whim and threw on the links necklace because it opened me up to trying out styles of jewelry I might not usually go for. I normally would have styled a top like this with a longer, more boho necklace. I think the combo of the boho top with the modern metal necklace turned out cool & unique!

Takeaway lesson: try out unexpected combinations!
