the monogram necklace

When it comes to accessories, I have always been in the “less is more” camp. Don’t get me wrong, I love incorporating statement earrings and dramatic necklaces into my ensembles from time-to-time. But when I’m wanting to go for a more timeless look, there are two pieces I swear by.

A perfectly sized pair of pearl studs, and a classic monogram necklace.

Without fail, I’ve found that a pair of pearls and a tasteful monogram adds an effortless, personal touch of subtle southern charm to any outfit. As such, you’ll find me wearing these two Moon & Lola pieces, in particular, daily! They can be styled for any and every occasion, from a morning walk with a friend to dinner downtown on Friday night, and no matter the outfit, they always echo my affinity for southern, classic style. When you can find an item that is truly “you” no matter how it’s styled, you know you’ve hit the jackpot, friends.

One of the reasons I love Moon & Lola is that you’ll find that essence of southern charm and sophistication in each of their gorgeous, personalized pieces. From creating a one-of-a-kind accessory at their charm bar (sorority girls, they have the cutest greek charms!) to deciding on the perfect size and font for a monogram necklace (I went with the block style in a size large) everything is tailored to perfectly embody you. Your style, your personality, the things you love most, etc. At the end of the day, that’s what makes any piece from Moon & Lola so special, whether it be a gift for someone else, or a special something just for you!

And speaking of gifts, be sure you keep Moon & Lola in mind for Christmas as we start to creep into the holiday season. Like I said above, there’s something so thoughtful about a personalized gift. I know I have my eye on this interlocking monogram key chain for a few of my besties!

So before I sign off, here’s my question. The pearl earrings and monogram necklace are me to a tee – which pieces from Moon & Lola most embody you?!

    I’m not a big fan of accessories because I always forget to wear them and I always think that my outfits look too much with them so I rarely use any. But those earrings look gorgeous! And the jacket is stunning.
