Meet Alissa from The Adored Life!

Friday, December 06, 2013

Today I wanted to introduce you all to Alissa from The Adored Life. As soon as I saw Alissa was from KC I subscribed! She is currently a student at KU and I just think it's so fun to read the blog of someone who lives nearby, shops at the same stores, etc. If you read her blog, then you know Alissa has great style and that each post comes with some wonderful story! (Check out 22 Things I Learned While being 22 or My Makeup Assault Tale for some good reads.)

Hi there! My name is Alissa and blog over at The Adored Life where you will find my daily outfits and random musings and embarrassing stories. I live in the Kansas City area and attend college at the University of Kansas where I will graduate this spring.  My favorite things to blog about are: my embarrassing stores, bling, polka dots, shoes, my boyfriend and complaining about school. 

I wanted to give you several ideas of how to spruce up your outfits via necklaces. Necklaces are one of my favorite ways to elevate any outfit. One of my favorite ways to elevate an outfit is to layer necklaces. It's such a simple idea but I've found people to be intimidated when actually doing it. 




The key I have found to layering necklaces for this look is finding one simple one and then one statement necklace. I like the layer the simple one to almost be touching the statement necklace so that it looks like once piece. 




Of course, you can never go wrong with just one gigantic statement piece. 


For fun twist, chose a sequin collard shirt and then layer a blingy necklace with it. 



This is my go-to when I want to add a little bit of pop to a simple outfit. Often when I am getting ready in the morning I just grab two necklaces and go. Thanks for reading and thank you to Darcy for letting me guest post!
