If you’re like me, you love dressing up, but don’t always have the time, energy or the dream wardrobe for that matter to create new looks day to day. One of my favorite ways to dress on the go and still feel put together is by adding jewelry. It instantly takes your jeans and t-shirt into something a little more polished. I’m always surprised how a unique necklace or chunky bracelet can start conversations and make you remembered. I have some special pieces that are a little costly, but most of my favorite pieces are $50 or less.
