Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and meet your new obsession… Andrea Sanger Design! AKA the brilliance behind the gorgeous necklace I’m wearing in today’s post. I was introduced to Andrea (a fellow Austin-ite!) via email a couple months ago, and was instantly floored by her unique, colorful creations. Truly unlike anything I’d seen before. I knew I had to share her work with you all!

In visiting her website, you’ll find a whole host of gorgeous designs. As if that wasn’t enough to leave you drooling, though, she also creates custom pieces. I had the best time sharing my love of color with her, which culminated in this necklace, the Happy. Could the name be any more fitting? I can’t help but smile when I see it!

I’m wearing it with a simple white sundress in today’s post so you can see each vibrant color clearly, but what I love most about this necklace is, surprisingly, it’s crazy versatility! I kid you not. The many colors lend to so many different outfits… I have a powder blue maxi I plan on pairing with it to bring out the blue beads, and picture how cute it would be with a pink flouncy top and white jeans. So while it’s a statement piece, it’s one you can wear with a million different looks!

I could go on and on (you who have read my long-winded posts know it all too well) but I’ll let the site speak for itself. The Happy is my summer statement piece, and one I am so excited to get so much wear out of. I can’t encourage you sprucing up your wardrobe with an Andrea Sanger piece enough. Have a favorite color that’s always flattering? Or a football team you cheer on every fall? You can’t go wrong with a custom piece, or one of her own designs. What color scheme would you custom create? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Ok. Deep breath. Got a little excited. Calming down. I love Andrea Sanger Design. That’s about it.

Love from Texas,
