Turquoise accessories have always been my favorites. I’ve never gotten into colorful jewelry (no pom-poms or bright pink gems here) so turquoise is the furthest I delve into color on my neck and wrists. Plus, all the stylists at my hipster-haven hair salon, Population, wear turquoise so I know it’s the cooooolest right now.
My grandma has given me turquoise jewelry from all of her adventures to the Navajo reservation and from our favorite place in Santa Barbara: Silver And…. I absolutely love these one-of-kind pieces.
I usually wear gold jewelry, mainly because I’m allergic to all other earrings. The problem being: most turquoise accessories are set in silver. But, I have a trick. I wear a silver and gold ring from Little Paper Planes that, in my mind, totally gives me a pass to wear both silver and gold at a moments notice. Pretty smart, right? I’m sure no one has ever thought of this before….
The same way I wear silver and gold, I also wear black and brown. I don’t know who came up with the rule that you can’t wear black and brown together, but rules are meant to be broken right? This vegan suede jacket has black trim, which begs for a black tank underneath. Bonus points: my favorite shoes from Free People are black with brown wood so I’m always getting away with breaking this silly rule.
TL;DR: I love my turquoise accessories from my grandma but have never had a necklace to match. Cue frantic search on BaubleBar. Though my exact necklace isn’t available anymore, they have so many turquoise accessories to choose from and Poshmark has some older models too (where I got mine, because who wants to pay full price for a statement necklace).
I absolutely love how this look came together. I felt like a straight-up rock star in this outfit and everyone needs days like that.
How do you wear turquoise? Do you also spell it wrong EVERY. DAMN. TIME.? What makes you feel like a rockstar?
