turquoise gold tjmaxx necklace

when in Rome, do as the Miamians do

You know how it goes, when you are searching for something, you can’t find it but when you really need something in particular – forget about it, not happening.  Well, I NEEDED a necklace to go with my dress (which will be featured here) I bought for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Champions of Hope Charity Gala, which was the finale event for my 10 week campaign to raise money for cancer research.  It needed to be fantastic.

This post is not about that necklace.  In the search (the struggle) to find something appropriate, I came across a bunch of other accessories that I really liked.  Versatility is always key but in this scavenger hunt, I realized I really didn’t have any casual-ish statement necklaces.

I picked up this turquoise and gold, Bangle Bangle necklace at TJ Maxx for $29.99 from $49, for about 40% off.  I wore it to a conference for work in downtown Miami.  As we know, I prefer to wear black… all the time.  However, while hurriedly packing, I ended with a bag full of bright (and forgot PJs).  Whatever I guess, it is Miami so, when in Rome…?

I really loved the necklace with the red skirt and although I cut them off, I wore nude patent leather heels.  I am admittedly, kind of proud of the amount of color I wore.  I may be getting the hang of this.
