I didn’t have much time to go thrifting this past week, so instead, I’m sharing with you my recent thrifty (i.e. affordable) find! I went to Walmart this past week in search of party supplies for my blogiversary party (more to come on that), and happened to walk by the jewelry department. A friend on Instagram mentioned that she found very affordable necklaces at there, and cute ones too! So I was excited to see the quality of the necklaces myself. To my surprise, they were well made and the variety of colors was amazing! Check out some of the ones I picked up:
Cute colors, right? And guess, what? They were only $5 a piece! Comparable necklaces at other stores are often at least $10 a piece. So I picked up a couple for me and a few more as gifts. Remember, Christmas is right around the corner! I also usually like to have gifts like these on hand to give as impromptu hostess gifts, teacher gifts, etc.
The two I was most excited about were the mint and yellow necklaces.
I had searched for a nice, beaded yellow necklace for a while now. Here are some ideas for styling these two colors, should you decide to get some for yourself:
I loved pairing the mint necklace with this bright red blazer (similar: Forever 21) and white top (Gus Mayer). I think the softness of the mint is unexpected and nicely juxtaposed with the bold red color of the jacket.
Remove the jacket and you have a very clean white and mint color combo! Perfect to close out the summer, or to save for wearing when Spring rolls back around.
The yellow necklace, on the other hand, adds a bright pop of color to most outfits, but particularly appealing against black, as is shown here with this black Zara top.
A print black and white dress (similar: Forever 21) can be overwhelmed with a busy necklace, so a monochromatic, beaded necklace like this one works well against a print fabric.
The mint also works well, don’t you think?
Pretty thrifty, right?? Not too shabby for $5 a necklace! I’d love to hear your opinions on the necklaces and/or the pairings above. Comment below with your thoughts!
Until next time! Stay Chic!

Great accessories at an affordable price! Color-blocking is really trendy right now so I’m glad to see how you paired the mint green necklace with the red blazer. Super chic! 🙂 – Lena
Thanks so much, Lena!!
Love the way you styled those cute necklaces! Hey, check out my thrift store find on my blog today. You keep inspiring me!
Thanks so much!! I did check out your post and thought it was great! What a great find!
I actually saw those necklaces at Wal-Mart the other day and was very tempted to buy one, but I’m trying to limit my jewelry purchases (I’ve bought a lot of necklaces lately!), but for $5, I might just have to go back and get at least one 🙂 I love the mint one!
I loved the mint one too!! Let me know which one you end up getting!
Love these colourful necklaces and at $5. you can afford one in every colour! Two of my favourites are the same as yours: mint and yellow, even before you said it, guess we both have great taste 😉 . I especially love the black and white monochromatic roses print top, I have a similar blouse version.
Have a fashionable week!
