In the four months I had between the time I first laid eyes on an LASJ hot air balloon necklace and the day it arrived in my mailbox I'd thought of at least 10 different ways I'd wear it, but once I saw a picture of April styling it herself with a black collared shirt I was pretty dead set on pairing it with every single collared shirt I owned. That is, until I realized I had a ton of collared shirts. There just isn't enough daylight in 24 hours for me to photograph me wearing it in all of my different blouses so I decided on 3 of my favorites and spared you the pictures of my wearing it with a plain white tee which is how I've worn it almost half a dozen different times in the past two weeks. Even with a plain t-shirt this little hand illustrated hot air balloon makes me feel happy and princess-y (which is the more girly version of quirky, I guess) and that feeling triples when I pair it with a clashing patterned top or pastel pearl studded Peter Pan collar. I usually try to keep it cute and "professional" when I'm doing a photoshoot, but in the spirit of the quirkiness of Little April Showers Jewellery and their hot air balloon necklace I chose the 6 funniest and/or most care free faces I made from over 100 photos of silly poses. Never take life too seriously!

One Necklace, Six Faces
hot air balloon necklace. I've had my eye on this little piece of art since April, the creator of Little April Showers Jewellery, featured it in an Instagram giveaway in April. I have a very obvious addiction to Instagram shopping so it's no surprise that even though I fell in love with the hot air balloon necklace when I actually placed my order there were 8 items on my list (one of which is a pair of oversized black bunny earrings that remind me remotely of Tim Burton, which you can see in the topmost pictures above).
