3 IRL Selfies + 3 Dainty Necklace Combos
Katie Dean, March 18 2019
I love to get all dressed up for special occasions, but the reality is: the majority of my days involve running KDJ from my home office, catching up on work emails, ticking off my to-do list of errands, hanging at home, and drinking coffee! Aren’t yours (please say they are haha!)?
The thing is, I don’t think you should have to wait for a fancy dinner out, or a special event to wear jewels that make you feel uber feminine, that make you feel great in your own skin, or that simply make you feel beautiful. Whether you’re getting groceries, having an indulgent brunch, or just hanging at home watching Netflix, you should get to feel that way every day, not a few times a year!
Sooooooo while I love to photograph my jewels in their best light (quite literally!), and have a pro photograph them, I decided to take a few good ol’ fashioned selfies instead! Why? Because I want you to see that everyday jewels don’t need a special occasion (or special lighting) and nor does “everyday” have to equal ordinary.
Here are 3 different necklace combos + 3 selfies and some inspiration from me on delicate, dainty necklaces that will make you sparkle no matter the day of the week or time of the year:
Necklace Selfie #1—Vintage Charm
It’s no secret I have a thing for vintage: the detailing, the hidden story, the family heirloom in the making. When I’m feeling a little nostalgic, I love wearing the old school glamour and simplicity of the Oval Charm Necklace (which always seems to catch the light just right) with the timeworn feel of the Eight Pointed Star Necklace—a little reminder to shine bright no matter what’s happening in life.

Necklace Selfie #2—Star Light, Star Bright
Who said sparkles had to be flashy and all up in your face? Not me! When I’m out to lunch with the girls (or myself!) I love to create a look that is understated and effortless, but still unique. The Little Dipper Necklace adds a hint of whimsical to any outfit and when paired with the versatility of the choker and charm of the Beaded Hoop Studs + Beaded Studs, the whole look finds itself elevated to the ultimate in sweet, soft and delicate.
Classic, timeless beauty is exactly that—no matter how relaxed or how dressed up you want to feel, these are statement necklaces that never feel “too much” for the day-to-day. The glimmer and gentle trim of theBeaded Coin Necklace combined with the visual enticement of the Evil Eye Necklace adds a subtle pop of interest whether you’re wearing a tee shirt, button up, or formal dress.
