After drooling over Olivia Palermo's statement necklace here, I decided to purchase one in my favorite color at H & M the other day. Of course mine isn't as extravagant or as expensive as Olivia's, obviously but it does the job of adding some pizazz to an outfit which is what a statement necklace is supposed to do. The brighter and bolder, the better! (In my opinion.)

Did you all have a nice weekend? Due to yesterday being the Victoria Day holiday, I had a 3-day weekend and it was glorious. I spent it sleeping in, reading, cleaning the entire house (well that wasn't glorious but it felt so good after I was done. I was a cleaning MACHINE! Once I start I can't stop. We're talking six hours straight - I don't mess around), spending time with family and friends, watching movies - I saw 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' which was really cute, and horseback riding with my sister-in-law at her and my brother's ranch. It was perfect and just what I needed, minus the extremely sore muscles in my legs from squeezing the horse I was on.

Have a good week! And thank you for reading my blog, I don't say that enough. Thank you.
