When Sarah Kaplan of Designs by s.e.K reached out to me to collaborate with her jewelry company, I jumped at the chance to style one of her beautiful, handmade necklaces. Each necklace is made by Sarah herself and features all natural stones and minerals in each piece. Can you say major step up from my Forever 21 costume jewelry!?
Ironically, I opted for the Aspen Drive Necklace, and I’m obsessed with its unique shape and neutral colors. One of my favorite parts about the necklace is that you can double up the strand to create a completely different look! My other favorite part would have to be that Sarah has created this business from the ground up, and to top it off is an absolutely lovely woman! She was so sweet and easy to collaborate with and I love supporting locally owned and woman-run businesses.
For a trip to Charlottesville for a UVA basketball game, I wanted the necklace to be the main focal point of my outfit, so I chose a neutral palette of classic staples to make sure the necklace truly stood out. This outfit is a little bit more on the preppy side for me, but I figured that I had to fit the part for a UVA game! (Don’t worry, the JMU Dukes still have my heart.) Previously, I’ve worn this necklace with an asymmetrical black tee, ripped boyfriend jeans, and a gray moto jacket, so it’s definitely versatile!
