Welcome to another installment of "One Piece, Four Ways," where I show you four new ways to wear one item. When I was first going through items I own that would work well in this series, I knew I eventually wanted to do one with a necklace. I have a couple of pieces that I wanted to do this with at some point in the future, but once I talked with Jennifer of Hello Cheeseburger about styling a piece of jewelry, I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity.
The moment I discovered Hello Cheeseburger, it was instantly added to my list of bookmarked sites that I drool over on a daily basis. The site has a wonderful mix of statement pieces and everyday jewelry, all of which are unique. I had a hard time choosing between the adorable options of necklaces that Jennifer gave me, but I loved how interesting this piece was while also being completely different from anything I already own. While I hope you all enjoy the four ways I styled the necklace here, don't expect this to be the last time you see it. Four ways were not enough.

1. This was the very first way I envisioned styling the necklace, and it may just be my favorite. This statement piece is perfect under a collar and I loved the texture of this necklace against the gingham shirt. It was the perfect way to dress it up.
2. I wanted to do something a little lighter and airy-er (yes, I know it's not a word. No, I don't care.) for this ensemble. On went the crochet crop top, mint chiffon dress, and brown wedges for a more dressed up look. Part of the reason I was drawn to this necklace was the possibility of dressing it up or down with ease. I could easily wear this outfit with flats or sandals for more casual occasions, but the additions of the necklace and wedges make it much better suited for a night out or dinner party. Neither of which are things I get invited to, but that's besides the point.
3. With a white and gold necklace, it was my first instinct to use it as a neutral accessory paired with more colorful clothing. However, I also wanted to do a look with color similar to the necklace. Of course, I couldn't resist from adding a little bit of color and slipped on my peach oxfords to finish the look.
4. The dreaded T-shirt. This is the first time I've ever worn one on the blog and the first time I've worn one that wasn't meant for bed or for work in probably years. They're not my thing and they probably never will be. That said, I'm always up for a challenge. While I couldn't bring myself to wear anything on my bottom half other than a skirt, I was really interested in seeing how this necklace could dress up a T-shirt. What do you know, I actually liked it. This was a fantastic way to dress up an article of clothing that I've been so determined to avoid. A good piece of jewelry can do that to a girl.
Which look is your favorite? And how would you style this Hello Cheeseburger necklace?
