A favourite trick of mine to liven up a plain outfit is to wear jewellery that makes a statement. Most often I go for necklaces because they help define and shape the neckline. A snazzy necklace can instantly transform an outfit, taking it from ordinary to eye-catching. When Happiness Boutique got in touch and offered me a piece of jewellery from their website I was rather spoilt for choice.
If you haven’t heard of the brand before (and I have to admit that I hadn’t) Happiness Boutique is an online company based in Germany that sells a wide range of beautiful and affordable jewellery, as well as scarves and clothing. The brand’s ethos is to spread happiness (well it is in the name!) which is why they offer free worldwide shipping with no minimum spend. There is also a reward programme which gives you points on every purchase, product review and social media share.
With so many show-stopping necklaces to choose from, selecting one was quite a hard task. Ultimately, I chose this yellow pansy necklace because I love the cheery colours and big flowers – just what I need on a grey November day. At first I wasn’t sure what to wear with it, but while going through some old clothes I found this faux wrap top. I must have had it about fifteen years given the number of house moves it’s seen, but I’ve hardly worn it. I like how the dusky pink shade matches the cut-out components of the necklace and contrasts with the yellow flowers. Suede wedge boots and a crossbody bag in berry tones complement the top and keep the colour palette simple.
I can see myself wearing this necklace with many different outfits: a simple grey sweater, a striped Breton top – there are so many options. During the Summer I’ll wear it with a strapless dress. It’s made of zinc so is lightweight but not at all flimsy. All components of Happiness Boutique’s sample products undergo strict laboratory tests for lead, nickel and cadmium content. The quality is fantastic – no sharp edges or misaligned jump rings to snag your sweater (that’s a real pet peeve of mine). Happiness Boutique has a 60 day return policy, in the unlikely event that you want to send your order back.
