Don’t you ever see something when you’re shopping and you just feel like you HAVE to have it? Well that’s how I felt when I saw this particular item:
How gorgeous is it? For some reason it completely grabbed my attention while I was browsing in PacSun. There were several of these in the accessories section but none of them had tags. Nonetheless, PacSun hardly labels their accessories properly (are these rings for 10 year olds? Midi rings? You’ll never know) so it’s not like I had a chance. I decided to buy it anyway. I thought it was the coolest necklace ever!
Now every time I’m in a stylist’s block (y’know, like writer’s block but for clothes, even though I’m not really a stylist for anyone other than myself), I tend to Google it just to see how the brand styled it, and then go from there. Welp, to my surprise, my purchase was no necklace. I wasn’t even close.
It was a crown. It. Was. A. CROWN. I had bought a gold laurel wreath crown for the purpose of wearing it around my neck. Yes, you can laugh at me. It’s okay, I won’t get hurt. In fact, Stephanie and I had a great time laughing about it when we did our photo session. It still gets brought up once in a while, and I still laugh like it’s a new joke. Either way, like I told Steph, thank goodness I found out before styling it or else I’d have a very interesting necklace that would need some explaining.
Here are some photos of me wearing the crown properly, letting it live to its fullest potential. As a crown. This whole boho chic look seems to be perfect for these upcoming festivals that are about to take place while it’s still a bit chilly. I also feel like the flower crowns need to retire (I know, my banner has me wearing one. I should change that) so this gold laurel wreath crown would be a great upgrade!
