From my clothes to my home decor to my pathway through life, I always want everything to be simple. I know that’s asking a lot, and sometimes no matter how much you do right, something does go wrong. Does anyone else occasionally find it hard to accept that they can’t have their cake and eat it, too? I’m sure it can’t just be me. But challenges are part of what help us to grow and become who we are… and if I can’t have simplicity in life, I always know I can have it in my clothes. In the past few weeks I’ve been styling my beautiful Viva Latina Crystal Pendant with practically everything I own… Like a black cashmere sweater and a pair of tortoiseshell sunnies, a sparkly silver pendant necklace – or several – is a wardrobe essential as far as I’m concerned. Viva Latina is a Mexican jewelry line that has just begun selling their pieces in Europe and I can see myself adding quite a few more to my collection; the simple, classic designs appeal perfectly to my style sensibilities.
