Today, I am joining Messy Dirty Hair with the Mini Messy Project!!  Sooo what is the MINI project you ask?!  Well if you haven’t guessed it yet its allllllll about the mini parts of fashion – the ACCESSORIES…which can also play a huge role in our everyday outfits. Just like clothes, accessories are also worn differently by each person depending on their style, shape, look etc.

So the MINI project will focus only on accessories….but I don’t mean just jewelry – tights, hats, sunglasses, headbands, bows, scarfs, shoes, belts, gloves are alllll accessories as well.

The Deal

1 Accessory

4 Girls

4 Different Styles

Did you notice that gorgeous Mint Cuff Necklace above?  Well it was my accessory from the Mini Messy Project.  Yall know I love mint, and I don’t have any collar or cuff style necklaces, so I was happy to have something a little different, and I would definiely wear it again.  It has a bit of a tough vibe, and I like that it makes a statement.  Do yall like it?

  1. THis is sooo exciting! Love the prabal shoes too of course. 🙂 Followed eviej on instagram, and I'm on my way to vote for you right now. This necklace would be paired well with one of my new express portofino shirts (similar to your j.crew blythe).

  2. You had me at the first "vote here" (in my best Jerry Maguire voice). Voting is done, but please do remind me every day because you know I have a horrible memory. Love the shoes! I checked out the other ways the necklace was styled (maybe Melissa hasn't posted hers yet) and I definitely think yours is the best. I may be just a little biased though. So excited for your opportunity with Wallis!!!

  3. did all the following. I would wear the bow necklace with anything! so versatile. I usually wear silver though, so when I wear a gold necklace I also wear gold earrings and maybe switch to gold rings too. I also voted for you!

  4. Following you and Evie J on IG and I would wear that necklace all day, every day!! Haha
    That is so exciting!! I just voted for you and will need the reminder to do so every day. You COMPLETELY and TOTALLY deserve to win this!!!!
    Eeek!! I'm so excited for you!!!

  5. CONGRATS on the nomination! I can't believe how many bloggers I already follow that are nominated. I wish I could vote for all of you (which I probably will!).

    And that bow necklace is SO pretty and delicate. I think I would wear it with a gingham shirt…the contrast of the pattern with the simple bow would be fun.


  6. Congratulations on your big news! That's awesome. Way to represent Memphis!

    Love the necklace! It's adorable. I just got a new checked shirt. To make the outfit more girly, I would totally pair it with the necklace. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I follow on GFC and Bloglovin, and follow Evie J on Instagram.

  7. Entering for the bow necklace…I'd wear itth a cute light pink blouse I have…and lots of other outfits too. You know I follow you and Evie J. And…I voted for you TWICE already and made Paul vote twice also…so that's four extra entries, right?! ;D

  8. I am following you on Bloglovin, GFC and Instagram! I also voted for you today! I would pair it with a nice coral & turquoise shirt to wear out with friends or to run errands in even to dress it up and put that girly touch on it! I love the bow, it's so cute! Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂
