“Oooh, that’s a pretty necklace” the seven year old observed several times during the course of the day, which I’m sure Rachel, who runs the online jewellery business Yosa would be delighted to hear. She kindly asked me if I would like to choose a piece of jewellery to feature on Style Guile and I chose this lovely Triangular Outlines Necklace which you can see below.
I love big, bold, bright, statement necklaces, and Rachel has a great selection of these too, but sometimes it’s nice to wear something which is a little understated. If I’m not wearing a statement necklace, I tend to layer a few finer necklaces together but this necklace is a fabulous compromise between the two as it’s substantial enough to hold its own ground without being too bling – and some outfits just don’t need bling. Geometric shapes are going to be a huge trend for the upcoming season so this necklace also ticked that box nicely and will do a fantastic job of updating some simple dresses and tops.
Rachel has lots of lovely pieces including bracelets, ear-rings, bags and scarves as well as necklaces and she sends everything out beautifully wrapped. You can find her on instagram as well as twitter and facebook too. There are lots of amazing women out there running small businesses alongside running a family and it’s fantastic if we are able to support them.
As to the rest of my outfit, I’m wearing the Felsted print trouser from Baukjen (£69 in the sale) similar here (£109) which I bought just after Christmas, together with a Hobbs top, Whistles handbag and Adidas Stan Smith trainers. The trousers haven’t had chance to make much of an appearance but I’m planning on changing that as they are so comfortable and easy to wear. Oooh and just look at that elasticated waist (which I’m hiding for that very reason)!
