Wren is one of my best collectors. Which is super flattering considering her past career in costume and fashion design. This lady knows how to rock any outfit, but especially a t-shirt with accessories!

Wren has introduced me to the art of layering. She commonly wears several of my necklaces at once. She said wearing a bunch of fancy necklaces makes them feel more casual to her, so it’s easy to pull off with a simple outfit. She finds wearing a single piece makes her feel fancier (and she’s no stranger to a fancy date night out - you should see her amazing shoe collection!)

Wren’s picks…

A pearl or gemstone cluster piece is a staple, perfect for a creating a baseline at the neckline.

This angled pearl necklace is a must.

A pod necklace really makes the look special, adding an artistic one of a kind touch. The one Wren has is sold out but here are other pod variations.

Who’s ready to layer?!
