If you’re from here you already know – anything turquoise is the jewelry of choice here in Texas. We wear it to tailgates, line dancing, on our belts and in our boots. We wear it to brunches and basketball games, shopping trips and sunday services. Dinners, parties, ranch trips, the list goes on. It is universally flattering and always seems to be the perfect touch, so you don’t hear me complaining!

It should come as no surprise, therefore, that I fell in love with the Celine necklace the second I laid eyes on it. Madison, the designer behind Mad Jewels, is not only as sweet as can be, she has such an eye. I kid you not when I say that I have been in search of the perfect turquoise statement piece for… honestly forever. When I came across her collection, however, I quickly realized I needed to look no further, and neither do you!

Mad Jewels is offering 30% off to Lonestar Southern readers with the code lonestar30 until August 31!  So if you need the perfect turquoise necklace for tailgates this fall, to complete your sundress + boots look, to add to your statement necklace collection, or just because you’re obsessed (I mark off all 3), take advantage of this crazy price! This is the necklace to splurge on, y’all. To give you a taste of what you’ll see on the Mad Jewels website, I’ve put my favorites below! Question – should I buy it all? (I’m thinking yes…)

madcollageLove from Texas,


PS – I uploaded a hair tutorial yesterday after a lot of requests for one. I hope you enjoy! :) And don’t you dare forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Christmas in July is real, y’all.

Join in on the fun!

    That necklace is INCREDIBLE. Absolutely, positively, incredible. You compliment it perfectly with the color palate. Orange, pink, white, turquoise- serious swooning.

    I love how you’ve shared all the wonderful ways to wear turquoise- it truly is such a versatile investment!

    Always, A
