You’re probably aware, since I’ve talked about it pretty incessantly the last couple weeks, that I’m trying to pare down my closet and focus more on quality over quantity especially when it comes to basics that get a lot of wear.
For probably the last year, I’ve been on the lookout for a simple gold necklace to wear everyday, that also layers well with other pieces. A couple years ago for Mother’s Day my mom got me a beautiful necklace with the kids initials that I absolutely loved and, of course, lost pretty quickly. Left it in a robe at a hotel when I was getting a massage. Lost in those industrial washers, never to be seen again.
I really wanted to splurge on a replacement but never pulled the trigger (thinking it will be my next milestone gift to myself). Since then I’ve searched for a chic replacement that doesn’t take such a hit on the bank account. My biggest thing though, was I didn’t want to buy something cheap that would tarnish or break quickly. I also wanted something I could personalize with something special since I’d be wearing it everyday.
You guys, I finally found it. I stumbled upon the brand AU-Rate from, you guessed it, an Instagram ad (They’re always listening. I’m sure my phone heard me compliment a friend’s necklace or something.) And you guys, this isn’t a sponsored post – I just love this piece so much, I felt compelled to do an entire post on the brand.
