[ necklace - c/o Cheerfully Charmed. top - Express. pants & bracelet - Forever 21. rainboots - Ruche. ]

The sun has taken a break from baking us and some storm clouds finally rolled in. I’m glad my rain dances have finally been taken seriously. So, of course, I immediately broke out my adorable rainboots and a bright & bold outfit.

If you love J. Crew, you have seen this necklace. I first took noticed it floating around Pinterest and some other blogs. It is one of those gorgeous statement necklaces that transforms any outfit with its pops of color. But even my appetite for online shopping can’t justify spending $150 on a necklace. So please meet my perfect (and affordable!) alternative: the coral bubble bib statement necklace from Cheerfully Charmed.

I’ve jumped ship temporarily—I still love you J. Crew—but I seriously love this necklace.
